Question about Nikon Coolpix 4600 Digital Camera

My camera - frozen?

I was recording a video on my camera earlier, and i set it down whilst it recorded. When i went to press stop so it would stop recording, and to review the video i had made, the screen was black but the little yellow/green light kept on flashing. I pressed the on/off button down for about ten seconds, but the lens were still open but there was no activity from the actual camera menu or anything. It's frozen - but the lens is still open, and i took the batteries out to charge. What do i do?

Re: My camera - frozen?

Charging the batteries was the first move. Charge for at least 14 hours, and never shoot on low batteries. If the battery gives out while you are recording to memory, it can corrupt the storage media. The lens should work normally with a fully charged battery.

Press the MODE button (on the top of the camera, marked green camera/video camera/SCREEN). Use up/down to select the video camera icon (the one below the green camera) and press OK. You're now in video mode. To start recording, press the shutter release button fully. To stop recording, press the shutter release button again.

No sound when recording


Unfortunately whilst this camera can record video it does not have a microphone to record sound.

This is a disappointing lack of features but is one reason used by Olympus to keep costs down on this model.

One solution is to use Video editing software on your computer to add a voice over or soundtrack to your video but it is not possible to record original audio with this camera.

Hope this information helps. If so please leave a vote for it. Thanks.

Lost my manual! How do I record a video?

CHoose the menu or Dial the menu to someking MOVIE ICON usually like a box with 2 circle above it (represent the movie recorder icon). Then press the shutter to record and press it again to stop. Just make sure your camera's memory (either internal or external) is enough. For other setting like resolution and frame per second (FPS) you may change it on the Menu. The bigger number on FPS meaning the video become more smooth but it take a lot of memory.

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.

Video function

An easier way to do this is to just press the right-hand button on the round wheel surrounding the set button. This allows you to scroll through all the various record modes: Snapshot, Bestshot, Video, & Microphone.

Recorded video segment plays back in fast motion. How do i reset

This is a really simple problem and easy to solve.  Unfortunately the videos you've recorded cannot be changed back because they have been recorded in Time Lapse mode.  
With the camera switched on in Video Mode turn the control dial on the back (this is the dial to the right of the LCD screen).  This will change the settings from TIME LAPSE to STANDARD.  There are actually 6 different modes but the best one for normal videos is STANDARD.  There is a HIGH RESOLUTION setting,  however these record fewer frames per second (fps) so whilst the quality is better per frame,  there are half the amount of fps so the the movie will look at bit jerky.
It's really easy to accidentally twist the dial when holding the camera,  so always check the icon in the top right of the LCD before recording to make sure its just a yellow camera in a yellow square.  
This should be problem solved for all future recordings.

Canon Powershot A630 video recording issue

This could be your memory card going bad. Recommend trying a "low level" format of the card to see if that jump starts it. First download all images and videos as the format will erase them from the card. Next press the menu button and select the settings (tools) menu. Go down to the format option, and press the "Func Set" button. Make sure "Low Level" format option is checked before selecting OK. After you format the card, try the video to see if the problem is fixed. If the above didn't help, recommend trying a different card.

Can't turn on my camera!


I have a link and some information I found on the video option to your camera. This link is for the manual located on

The following is how to stop video:
To stop recording video, press and release the Video
button again; otherwise, the video will continue recording
until the camera runs out of memory.

If you have set the camera to Self-Timer or Self-Timer -
2 Shots (see Using the Self-Timer Settings on page 44),
the camera will start recording 10 seconds after you press
the Video button. However, with the Self-Timer - 2 Shots
setting, the camera only records one video clip.

After recording has stopped, the first frame of the video clip
appears on the Image Display. While it is processing, you can
delete the video clip by pressing the Menu/OK button

Good luck and please let me know if there is anything else i can hep you with--feedback would be geat.. thanks, d
