I can't hear clearly but the volume is in the maximum volume


if your camcorder uses cassete then please try your earlier recorded cassette. if the problem is with the newly recorded one then please use cleaner to clean the camcorder. possibly the audio recording and playback head might have some deposit on. it cleaning should help.
if you cant find cleaner dampen cotton cloth with very little alcohol and rub all the metal part except a round drum whic is video head and can be damaged.

I have very low sound on my jvc gz-ms120au when playing back a recording


Hi,

I'm sorry to know that the videos are playing back with low volume. I'll be glad to assist you with this. Make sure that the Camcorder is used with a fully charged battery.
Increase the volume of the Camcorder using the Volume + - buttons and check if it increase or decrease. You can also try connecting the Camcorder to the Computer or to the TV and check if the transferred videos are playing with normal volume.
There are no settings to be done in the Camcorder to increase the recording volume level.
You can also backup the files, format the memory and capture a sample video recording and check if it helps.
This should resolve the issue.

Thanks for contacting FixYa.

When i playback what i've recorded from my vivitar Vivcam T328,i can't hear the volume. How do you get to find the volume on this camcorder T328. thank you,look forward to hearing from you.


The T328 is primarily a still camera, not a camcorder. It records images, not sounds. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer but you cannot record one on this camera.
Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

I have the above model camcorder ,the playback on my laptop with windows vista is terribly poor jumping all the time/distorted with jvc software provided or on windows media player it plays but audio is...


Are you playing the video directly form the hard disk in the camcorder or are you transferring the file to the laptop first? Reading high volumes of data via USB is slow and the PC may not be able to read the data fast enough from the camcorder. Try copying the video to the laptop first, then play it back.

The playback is staticky (spelling???)or maybe the right term is noise - what can i do about this?


Kinda mosaic-like noise?


Possible cause
-dirty playback head
-dirty or worn-out tape
-running tape recorded from different camcorder.Tape will play back best in the same cam that recorded it.

Distorted sound on playback, samsung mini dv camcorder.


Try a DV tape cleaner first. If that doesn't work, see what it would take to get the audio heads realigned. Any camera store can do that for you.

Choppy recording and playback


If the heads become dirty, “NEED HEAD
CLEANING” appears during recording. During
playback, moreover, the following symptoms
appear.
≥Mosaic-like noise appears partially or the
sound is interrupted.
≥Black or blue mosaic-like horizontal stripes
appear.

When normal playback cannot be performed
even after the head cleaning
One possible cause is that normal recording
could not be performed because the heads were
dirty at the time of recording. Clean the heads,
and perform recording and playback again. If
normal playback can be performed, the heads are
clean. Before an important recording, be sure to
conduct a test recording to make sure that normal
recording can be performed.
≥If the heads become dirty soon after cleaning,
the problem may be the tape. If so, try another
cassette.
≥During playback, the picture or sound may be
interrupted momentarily, but this is not a
malfunction of the Camcorder. (One possible
cause is that the playback is interrupted by dirt
or dust that momentarily adheres to the heads.)

Problems with playback of HI8 tapes...


What's happening is that the tape in the cassette is being chewed on one side by the camera's tape transporting mechanism during playback, hence the distorted image and sound. The mechanism might be damaged (misalignment) or just dirty. Try not to play other tapes on this unit because they will become permanently damaged. The best way is to find another camcorder (if cleaning does not help). Note that some old cassettes of long recording time will exhibit this behavior more often because of thinner tape used.

Bad playback quality


Some possible cause of lines, noise or pixelation during playback are: 1. Dirty heads on the recording machine. If the heads were dirty at the time of recording, the dirty heads didn't record a strong enough signal on the tape. The damage is done for this tape and recovery is unlikely. Best advice here is to use only premium grade new tapes and keep your camcorder clean by occasionally running a cleaning tape. 2. Physical tape damage. Any distortion of the tape will result in mistracking and subsequent loss of data. 3. Built up oxide deposits or other debris in the guidepost corners can also result in tape edge damage. Keep your machine clean! 4. Improper tape storage - Even short term exposure to high temperatures over 130 deg f. can permanently damage the tape. The black cassette housing readily absorbs the sun's infrared rays and internal cassette temperatures can soar even if left in direct sunlight on just a warm day. It doesn't take much heat to slightly distort the plastic shell or ruin the tape contained within. * Try other tapes to ensure the problem lies within the tape and not the camcorder. * If the problem becomes apparent on all tapes, try a head cleaner. After cleaning the heads, the tapes may not play cleaner if the recording was done while the heads were dirty.
