Hello! I acquired a great memorex tripod. I don't know what model it is but from what I can see, it has all working parts. I'm not sure how to use it with my Canon SD870 IS powershot camera. What attachment to I buy to mount it on the tripod. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm a little lost.

Manfrotto have great warranties. If it is new, send it to Manfrotto to repair/replace the parts and make it whole again. If parts are worn it will be hard to tell you how to fix it without pictures, or know which model tripod you have.
Well if you don't want to return it and it doesn't seem to you like an easy fix, by comparing how the mounting supports are connected on the legs, than you know you have a defective tripod?
There are multiple kinds of support clamps/brackets you can use or...
I would just go purchase a small roll of Automotive Velcro, (thats the toughest and trongest stuff around and cheap at Walmart), to mount to and strap around it, Or you could use a belt, string anything to wrap or tie around it!
Dollor General sells a small box of I believe (8) long strips of Velcro for $2.00 you can attach to some material, (stronger the better) on both ends and strap it cloed that way! That's also pretty good velcro, but really needs to be sewn or safety pinned to the material!
I really don't blame you, I hate having to return things, its a pain, that is for sure! Atleast you don't have the opposite effect of it closing on you! lol You'd have to take it back then!
If the head is loose on the tripod follow these instructions:
There are three small set screw (grub screws) that are under the head, net to the center column.You will have to raise the center column and look underthe head.These are slotted screw heads and a small to medium screwdriver should work.You don ot have to remove the grub screws completely, but you should back them out at least half way.The head will unscrew off the center column.The gray part below the head is half the head attachment and half the center column end plate so it should separate in the middle line between the two.
If screws came out elsewhere, we will need to know the model number of the head that came apart.
I had an old Kenlock 3000 tripod with the same problem. What I did was take some good Scotch Packaging tape and just fold it over and over until it was the same height of the plastic pad that you mentioned. I then used scissors to cut the tape into the same size of the pad, and the placed it into the tripod. It works perfectly now.
Vivitar has been out of the tripod business for a few years now. They may no longer have the parts. You may be able to find another V900 and scavage the parts. Make sure the model numbers match exactly. The V900SE is a different year and does not share the same parts as the V900.
I have the same tripod, and the screw shown in the photo you posted is to lock down the rotation of the tripod's head, i.e., what a video camera uses to pan (horizontally) across a scene. The large knob is used for the same in the vertical direction (up and down motion).
