Most likely your Vivitar needs a new battery....if you've lost your a/c adapter-you can use a standard USB cable to charge your camera. Plug the smaller end into your Vivitar & the larger end into your turned on PC/laptop & it'll charge the battery.

Powering camcorder with a Cigarette lighter connection

John, if you need to do that you need to get a voltage converter with a wide input range like (10 to 16volts) and an output voltage of 7.5volts which the camcorder requires.

You can even make one if your are an electronics buff. Let me know if you need any help on that.
