Well, actually Vivtar is not a big deal as a brand.. Having said this, best option to take it to an optical store where they actually can tell you if it can be repaired and where it can be repaired.

Can you see any ships?

Seriously, if you look at a dim light is it really dark? Is there a cover on the eyepiece?

Mount the finder securely on the main scope tube, and make sure each of its adjusting screws is at about mid-travel (BTW a lot of finder scopes have a rubber ring fitted between the finder and its mounting tube. If this is missing a rubber band is a good substitute).

Place a low power EyePiece in the scope (this will be the longest focal length EP you have), and then in daylight, find a distant object like a tower or distinctive treetop. Swing the scope and center this object in the EP (it will be upside down in a standard EP). Then center it in the crosshairs of the finder.

Change to a lower focal length EP (more powerful) and repeat this procedure . Then at night, swing the scope to an obvious target like a planet or a bright star, and repeat the procedure until everything is centered. If you handle and store the scope carefully between observing sessions there will not be much correction needed next time.

I have had a similar experience with another manufacturer(NOT Vivitar). I called them and they offered to replace/repair them for a shipping/handling charge. If I remember correctly it was between $15 and $20. After pricing new ones, this seemed like a good resolution. I sent them in(my cost) with a check for their S & H. A few weeks later I had new ones from the manufacturer.

viv tel 76700 takes both size eyepieces. There is a small sleeve in the eyepiece holder that reduces the size to .965in(cheap 2 element plastic pieces), take it out and use 1.25in( 4+ element glass) pieces and you will see better. This scope has many names on it, search 76700 telescope and you'll see.
