The head is dirty and needs cleaned. Look around for a MiniDV cleaning cassette. If you can't find one, then you need to clean them manually. You will need foam swabs and Q-Tips could possibly leave behing a strand of cotton, plugging the head further. Also don't use rubbing alcolol. It is 30% water Gert 100% isopropyl. Consult your manual for the required cleaning spots. There will be a few,

How do i get video to workon my vivitar vivicam x327


Video Mode
Press the MODE button to select the Video mode.
Note: The camera has limited internal memory allowing you to record up to 20 seconds in QVGA. An SD
card (up to 8GB) needs to be inserted in order to use the video mode normally.

When the icon appears on the top left corner of the LCD screen this indicates that you are in Video
mode.

1. Prepare the object or subject you wish to record.
2. Press the Shutter button to begin shooting the video.
3. The elapse time will appear on the top right of the LCD screen and the icon will flash on the
LCD screen.
4. Press the Shutter button again to stop the recording and save this file in AVI format.

Note:
1. You can preview the AVI files in Playback mode or once downloaded to your computer by using
Quick Time and Windows Media Player.
2. When the camera's memory is full, the “Memory Full Insert a SD Memory Card to Transfer and
Shoot More video!” message will appear on the LCD screen when you attempt shoot more videos.
Download the test file from the internal memory to the PC or delete them to shoot more videos.

Alternatively, you can insert a SD memory card to expand the memory to record longer videos.
3. The LED will light up when the light condition is not good.

I can't view my pictures after the shot,it very blerr


I'm not sure if you are talking about the quick view of a picture just taken, or using playback mode to view shots taken. Either way, I suggest changing batteries so they are fresh.
There are 3 different LCD choices when in "Shooting Mode."
Press "DISP."
The display mode will change each time you press this button.
1- Standard (no info displayed, just pic)
2- Detailed (infor displayed)
3- Off
If you have tried this, then you may want to perform a reset to the cam. This will reset any screen/LCD settings that may have been changed.
Goto the Setup Menu and select "Reset All." Select "OK" and press "Func. Set."
This reset WILL NOT reset the following:
-Current Shooting Mode
-Date/Time, Language, & Video System settings
-White Balance Data (of you have custom settings changed in the custom white calance function)

HOw to transfer video to PC


The camera should work fine in XP without a driver (none exist except for Mac OS). The problem sounds like it could be the transfer cable - are you using the original one? Some of these cables are specific for certain models. Even if the cable looks the same and actually plugs in correctly, a standard replacement may not work. If you can give me details of your location, I can try and source an original cable for you if you need it. Try the camera on another PC to see if you get the same message, and try every cable you have or can borrow. Hope this helps :)
