On Ebay or the internet search for your model.
Usually the price is about $15.00 plus ship.

My vivacam kills batteries within a few minutes

Do not use alkaline batteries. Buy NiMH rechargables and keep a couple of sets on hand fully charges. ViviCam's eat alkalines alive!

I had the same problem and took it into the dealer who firmly taped the battery door shut to get battery contact and told me that a new door would cost more than a new camera. It worked!

How to use

you can display the pics you have already taken by pressing the "mode" button twice. The first time you press the button it brings you to record mode, so you can shoot home movies, the second time you press it you will see your stored pics. In order to do this, the front view finder of your camera has to be open. I hope this helps.....I am currently seeking answers to my own questions as well: I need to know how to shut off the flash on this camera as it is BLINDING!! LOL! also I would like to know where I can get the cable to download the pics to my computer.If anyone has this info to share, that would be great! Thanks!

Battery door broken

Check Ebay for your model camera. Look for one that is broken/as is, you can use it for spare parts and usually pretty cheap.
