No Sound on Olympus FE-210

The reason you get no sound on playback of videos is that this camera is not equipped with a Microphone. This is one of the most confusing and disappointing features of the camera as whilst it has video capability it has absolutely no ability to record Audio.

Olympus have omitted this feature on this particular model to keep costs down and unfortunately there is absolutely nothing you can do about it in terms of adding original audio.

However, if you have a video editing program on your computer you can use this to add a voice over or even a soundtrack to the video to prevent it from being completely silent.

Unfortunately no original audio can be recorded with the FE-210 because of the omision of the microphone in the model specification by Olympus.

Hope this clarifies the issue.

I bought a Kodak C143 yesterday, took a video, played it and found there is no sound. i have a microphone on the camera so it should play the sound?

You cannot adjust the sound volume on the camera but it does record the sound during videos. During playback on the camera itself you can unfortunately not hear the sound associated with your videos. You are required to download your videos to your computer to hear the sound. Wish the instruction pamphlet told us that.

Microphone on Finepix f10 not working

If the old video is playing the sound on the camera then it only proves that its speaker is working. Take another video and if there is no sound anymore then the mic is gone. Send it to Fuji for service.
