Re: I dont understand how to use an external mic. Use of...
Your external mic needs to have a 1/8" plug. You will need to find the "Mic" input, this is generally found behind a removable or hinged plastic or rubber panel, and usually near the A/V plug connectors. When you plug in an external mic, the camera switches over to use it rather than the built-in mic. On this camcorder, you cannot set the recording level of the external mic. The camera sets the level automatically. So it is simply a plug-and-play, or plug-and-record solution.
Using an external mic allows you to reduce self-noise and handling noise. It is generally recommended for better videos. Different microphones are likely to interact in different ways with your camera and its automatic level-setting, so you should try out different microphones if you have more than one available to you.

Control Panel, Sounds, look at Recording devices (depends on the OS you are using, you didn't mention, Vista, XP, 7,8?), Mic. Your Headphones jack, when in use, will cause the internal sound to disable, depending on OS the mic setup is a bit different but you should find it in sounds, recording devices.
go into the settings and switch to external mic and dont use the mic. or if you have an on off switch on the mic switch to off , its cumbersome but works. I have forgot to plug it in all the way and that too works gives you video no sound. you dont need a new camera , good luck
I think this camera has manual audio control.
Use the menu system and set the audio to manual then turn down the audio completely.
Another option is to place a microphone jack into the external mic socket without a mic attached. This will mute the onboard mic.
This camcorder will record audio from an external STEREO mic plugged into the top connector on the right side of the unit (under the plastic cover). I find it works EXTREMELY well with the various Sony microphones traditionally sold for MD recording (I use a mid-size one: model #ECMMS907). Some microphones may have too low an audio level for these camcorders. Other microphones may not have a stereo plug, but most of the ones that do (and have a high output level) should work You simply plug in the mic. No fussing with settings should be necessary. The camcorder has an onscreen audio meter that can be enabled. I leave it on all the time, so I am sure the external mic is working (mine has an on/off switch as well as an AA battery -- so I really want to make sure!).
If you put the camcorder in manual mode, there is a microphone sensor that will move when sound is picked up by the external microphone. In manual you can keep everything else automatic. The off for the mic means that the built in mic is turned off when an external mic is attached.
An instruction manual is available for download at www.canon.com Your camera, according to the manual, has a single input for microphones, and in the internal menu, AUDIO DUB has to be set to MIC. IN. when using an add-on microphone. An MA-300 hot-shoe microphone accessory can be used, and then the input controls would be on this device, not the camera. Your camera can also record in two different audio qualities: 16-bit two channel or 12-bit four channel. If you are using an accessory you may need to select 12-bit in the internal setup menu in order to have enough channels to add on the additional microphone(s). Finally, and hopefully not, the camera may have an internal hardware problem, and so would need to be serviced.
not familiar with this model
but ill try
try in the menu puting it on game mode
then look for external input mode in the menu and turn it too
fix ur remote or bye a new one (be sure that the new remote will activate the game option)
