Re: camera does not record sound

Have you tried hooking your camera up to your tv with the cord it came with and try to see if it has sound that way? maybe the speakers are blown...and if its not the same recorder it was recorded with sound maybe distorted or and even picture can be too so thats no sure way to know if it worked or not...If your camera is or was new guess its not new anymore its been over a year now since you posted it...but I would of taken it back to the store I bought it from and said hey this dont work fix it or replace it thanks...but since this is so far out I would try hooking it up through the tv and make sure you have the cords hooked up properly to your hookups on your tv or vcr whichever you run it through...and the right channel to view and hear the video...
Another thing I would try is through the menu try to find a setting for sound maybe you had it on something like silent movie type or something...
Thats all I thought of hope it helps.

No sound when i playback a recording on the camera or when it switces on ut the sound is up so how can i fix this

If the camcorder will playback an older recording with sound ok then its more than likely the microphone, if it will not playback any sound from any tape then its more than likely the speaker or a setting in your menu, first look for a factory reset in the menu somewhere. also if the unit is playing and has good sound coming from the tv then its probably the speaker. I hope this helps.

No sound on my samsung

if you put a old tape in that has sound in it and it does not playback sound then your internal speaker is bad. easy fix and not to much.

Sony trv18e a few things don't work

Night shot light is "Infra Red" and you can not see it directly though camera will shoot in darkness if you slide ON Night-Shot switch.

Regarding playback volume problem, I think built-in speaker is defective ( open ) and needs to be replaced.
Let me know if you want some more info.

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 audio during playback

On my handycam you have to hit the Volume + button while playing back. Everytime you playback it starts volume at zero and you have to volume up to hear anytime you playback.

No Sound?

Make sure the volume is up by press the function controls on the lcd display. Was there anything plugged into the mic input of the camera?

Audio volume

Unfortunately, connecting an external mic is not an option that was engineered into this model camcorder. Likewise the speaker and small amplifier for audio playback is simply what it is. You should be able to adequately hear normally recorded levels. If not, maybe there is a problem with the internal condensor mics or the playback speaker. If you are unable to obtain a resonable level using A/V cables to a TV, then something could be wrong. I have not seen problems with this model regarding sound, but anything can happen. Good luck, ms
