Audio Issues With Sony DCR-TVR900 NTSC

I am having major issues with recording audio with my camera. The video comes out fine- but the audio recorded goes in and out randomly. I will hear some of what was recorded, but most of the time it is silent. It jumps in and out of sound to silence. I am recording on new mini DV tapes. I have tried 12 bit and 16 bit. Set the audio mix levels to ST1 and ST2 and every place in between but still the audio cuts in and out. It just started to have this problem. I hooked a microphone up to the mic jack and still the same problem occurs. Any help would be appreciated!

    I have this camera. I had this problem, but it was corrected by using an external microphone connected to the external jack. I am using a Sony S930C external microphone. The microphone can use either its own internal battery or it use the power supplied by the camer'a battery. Also check to see if the record level is set to manual. If so make sure that the volume is turned up. You can also use the manual setting to check to monitor the sound level coming through the microphone because it displays a meter. You might also want to clean the recording heads inside the camera. They might be dirty.

Well, it is not a bad mike connection since you connected another external mike to unit. If it worked before then something bad has happened to your audio electronics causing this anomaly.

Everything records fine then suddenly ,the disc wipes clean after ,do u want to finalise comes up even though i put no! as this can happen after only 2minutes or 5 or 10 and recording is nowhere near...


Dear Sir,
I am very sorry to hear of this, but it does seem to be a major problem with 1000's of other disk cameras that seem to think people do not want to keep what they record on those type cameras.
Please go into seeting meno, look at the setting for Film Time lenght, do not choose close disk, then it wont try to close any more disks till you tell it to do so.
Good luck in future filming.

Audio on Dell Webcam Central And voice record isn't working


I have a Dell 1545 with Dell web cam central & I've had this issue. The problem is that Dell web cam central installs it's own microphone settings onto your laptop called something like Dell web cam Live!. This isn't the built in microphone in my laptop & maybe not yours either. You have to change the settings for your computer system & Dell web cam central. Go to start> control panel> sound> recording .. on mine there is an option for Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" ... that is the built in mic. You want that for your default & apply it. Also .. as a side note .. I disabled the web cam central Live! microphone completely from this window. Then open Dell web cam central & go to the "Record Video's" option. In the middle of this is an orange button with a video camera icon. Next to this on the same button is a little arrow pointing down .. click that. Under microphone .. choose Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" just like the sound option in control panel. I've done this & it's completely fixed. I can record videos with sound & use my built in mic in voice/video chat.
