You could have either a bad sound card inside the camera or a bad microphone. If there is a mike port (this will be a small hole with a microphone icon) you could try attaching a mike to the camera and see if you get sound with video that way, ruling out the possibility of a bad sound card inside the camera. If that suits you, and you're willing to use a mike, then you're fine. 
I've trolled the Internet, looking to see if others have had your problem, and apparently, this IS a problem others have had. If your camera is still under warranty, I'd suggest strongly that you either exchange it, or have it looked at to see if a professional camera repair shop can work it out for you - but at the low price point of the camera itself, I'd say fight for an exchange for a working model would be your best bet. 
I've also looked up specification sheets for this model; they don't go into any detail about the video mode for this model, but reviews from users on many camera sites say there ought to be video with sound - and that they're having trouble with it too. 
Hope this helps.

I don't hear any sound when I record on my vivicam 3710, can you please tell me what I need to do to hear sound when I play the clip back on my computer?


Sorry, but the ViviCam 3710 does not record any sound when in video mode. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer, but you cannot record one on the camera.

Flash on vivicam 3188 doesn't flash


flash does work on your vivitar cam you just have to put it on.
when you want to take a pic with flash on you simply have to press the backwards arrow which has the lihtning flash arrow above it. now the flash should work when you take your picture.
Good Luck
hope it works-it should because i've got the same cam too.

PICTURE BUT NO SOUND!


Your Camera records sound but does not play it back on the device. Go to www.vivitar.com and download the driver for your camera. Install it on your pc and you should have sound when playing video in windows media.

No sound on Video


Hi, am not that familiar with your brand/model of digicam, but if it is like with what I use, an Olympus, which can take 15 seconds video clip but there is really no sound. The video is just an added feature but sound recording is not included. Again am not so sure with your model. You can try checking the menu setting or have another look at the user's manual. Their site is http://www.vivitar.com/default.asp although could not find your model. Hope this be of some help. Kind regards.
