Re: i hook my cam corder up to the my tv it will play but...

You are likely using the S-Video cable (multi-pin cable that connects to the front of the camera below the spotlight). This cable carries video but not audio. To get audio, use the multi RCA to 1/8" adapter (has red, yellow, and white cables and plugs into the side of the camera)

No sound on playback

The S-video cable carries picture only. You need to also hook up RCA audio cables from the camcorder to the TV

Audio in playback mode doesn't work

Hi There, Try this: Connect you camcorder to your tv set via a/v input cable. Put camera in cam mode so you can see the picture on the tv. Turn up the volume on tv and if it squeels, the mic on the cam is ok. Record something and then play it back on the tv, if its ok, then all your audio is functioning. This means that the SPEAKER on your camera is defective.
Thanks, mr cicmo

No sound

Please confim sound in playback by connecting camcorder with TV by A-V cable. If sound available in TV, then built-in speaker near LCD unit of camera is defective. You can get / Replace speaker from nearest Sony Service Center. Hope info will helpful for you.

Horizontal lines on playback on my camocorder samsung sc-d353

Someone here recommended on another post to put the lense cap on & videotape the blackness in a quiet room for 5-10 mins. I tried this as a last resort & it worked. When I played back the tape, no more skipping or gray lines. I had 4-5 SOLID gray lines with skipping video & audio in between on every tape I put in. I think the person who helped me solve this said that it was a result of the tape alignment going off. My camera is a Canon zr80 digital camcorder. (Called Canon, they had me reset it & then recommended sending it in).

JVC dvl 9700 playback on tv is black & white

You can get the sound to play by hooking up an additional cord to the audio jacks - the same as you would do if you didn't use the s-video. I am still working on the b & w issue
