2. Switch on SP510 power;
3. Press "MENU" button on back plate;
4. Select "Camera Menu" from screen if not already on it, using navigation buttons on back plate
5. Scroll down yellow "Camera menu" tabs to microphone picture (below "Digital Zoom"), which may be showing "off". Select OK and toggle yellow tab from "off" to "on", then press OK button.

There is a way to turn the sound on and off in the setup menu. Go into the menu and make sure your sound is turned on. If it is go in to the playback menu and make sure the sound is turned up. Let me know how it goes.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Olympus stylus 7030. No zoom function when using video setting?


The optical zoom will not work while recording video with sound. To use the optical zoom, turn the sound off. See pages 16 and 33 of this manual.

Have no sound after recording something why?


Your only fix is to buy another camera.

The FE210 is a very low cost basic video stills camera. Although it has the ability to record video when needed it does not record audio as it lacks the hardware to do so (click here to see the Olympus model specifications which clearly show no sound recording facility listed under Movie Recording System). On your camera it's really only a free taster of video simply because the camera shares hardware with other models in the range which record both video and audio. Keeping it basic on the FE-210 keeps the price down as many users don't want to record video and so don't want to pay for unnecessary features.

I hope that my speedy answer has saved you further frustration and reassured you that you are doing nothing wrong with your camera. Please take a moment to rate my answer.

No sound when recording


Hi,

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.

Sound failiure for olympus fe-20


I have this camera. It is a great camera. The camera is supposed to not have sound. They made it that way. You view your videos through computer and on TV, but not directley through the camera. It's not a problem- just the company. :)

NO SOUND IN VIDEO RECORDING


Unfortunately this camera is not capable to record sound during movie recording. It was not designed with audio input or output speakers.

This isn't a problem, the Fe-210 doesn't record audio and it was built this way.

Fe-170 olympus sound


From the specs i've read on this camera, it does not record sound in video clips taken.

The FE180 and FE190 do record sound.

Sorry for the bad news.
