Once you've taken the picture, the date stamp is just more pixels, exactly as if you've taken a picture of a sign with the date on it. Just as a sign hides what's behind it, the date stamp covers whatever was there.You can use a photo editing program to remove it the same way as removing any unwanted object in the picture. You can crop the picture, or use a cloning tool to try to extend the background to cover the date.
I have a vivitar vivicam
Having gone over five months without a reply to my query, I assume formatting the card solved the problem.

You can download the manual from the manufacturer's web site at
The camera needs a memory card in order to save pictures. You can take pictures without one and view them on the screen, but those pictures are lost when you turn the camera off.
Removing time and date
Unfortunately, the camera embeds the time and date into the image itself so once it is there the only way to remove it is with photo editing software. This would take some skill with the software to take out the time/date and make the photo look natural.
If you want to give this a go try the free software at getpaint.net. I suggest looking at the "clone stamp" feature and reading the manual on the help menu from inside the software so you know how to use it.
I accidentally deleted a video
you may get software to try and look for the deleted files (if they were actually written to the SD in the first place) the data in files are usually not deleted until something write over the data. its only marked as free space. but if it is lost. dont be upset. you will end up with many many hours of videos and pictures of your child :) one single lost xmas video will mean nothing in the long run How to recover deleted files

How to open battery door for vivicam F126
Well after looking at the manual, it is of no help but the pictures show it hinging open. Try pressing down and sideways along the compartment door from hinge line to outer edge. It it slides, it should unlock.
Read reviews that indicated Vivitar customer support told an owner to visit a camera shop. Manual is on the CD included with the camera.
Theres no sound on my vivitar camera how do i get sound?
The reason you get no sound on playback of videos is that this camera has no Microphone. This is one of the most disappointing features of the camera as whilst it has video capability it has no ability to record Audio.
Vivitar have omitted this feature on several models to keep costs down and unfortunately there is nothing you can do about it in terms of adding audio.
If you have a video editing program on your computer you may be able to add a voice over or a soundtrack to the video by using this method but no original audio can be recorded.
Hope this clarifies the issue. Thanks for using FixYa.
What does MSDC mean everytime I plug the camera
The MSDC error is to do with the memory card having bad sectors or has become corrupt.
Basically you have to reformat the card to get it working or take the card out of the camera and put it in a card reader and see if you can get the computer to recognize the card that way.
