My Vivitar Vivicam X327 doesn't have sound for my

The ViviCam doesn't record any audio with its videos. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer.

Alkaline batteries and rechargeable batteries tend not to last very long in high-drain devices like digital cameras. Lithium batteries tend to last longer. This doesn't really depend on the brand, Energizers and Duracells will both work about the same.

I put some energizer AAA baterries in the camerai just bought the 14890 talking camera but it does not power on the only way it powers on is if i plug the usb to my can i get it to work on the...

I would recommend you try Energizer Lithium or Duracell M3 batteries.

This camera is noted for its high drain of "ordinary alkaline" batteries (see toysr'us customer comment below).

Also note that the memory is a constant charge flash memory - meaning no battery current = no pics (you lose the lot).

Another happy customer - NOT .....
She used it for three pictures, set it down, the auto-shutoff enabled (which is great because the batteries aren't rechargable) and the darn thing wouldn't come back on. We switched out the batteries (tried them in a flashlight and they were drained!) and it powered on, however her pictures were gone. After reading the troubleshooting section of the manual, we discovered the flash memory requires a constant charge, so if the batteries die (which they did again about 10 minutes later) all the pics are lost. Come on! How reasonable is it to have to sync the camera with the computer and save pictures every ten minutes?!

Can you recommend a battery which doesnt drain within 24 hours

The best batteries on the market are the Energizer Lithium AA cells. There are 2 types, but the Ultimate Lithium are the top drawer batteries. A bit pricey, but because they last so long, you really do save money (and frustration) in the long run.

No power despite fresh batteries

If it's less than a year old, it's still under warranty. Exercise that warranty and contact Canon support.

Camera shuts down when the flash is opened

the flash circuit of the camera is short. the moment you switch on the flash it drops the supply voltages of the battery. you have to show it to a repairer.
