After recording, I have found that in the playback mode there is no audio. I have video, but no audio. Sometimes the audio is there and sometimes it's not. Not sure if it isn't recording the audio or if it is just in playback mode. I have had the camcorder around 5 years and this is the first issue I've had. Any ideas?

what model cam, if its mini dv and playback has audio cutting out then the cam that originally recorded the video had slightly off tracking and can only be fixed by playing back from the same cam that recorded it
Having used a cleaning tape several times to no effect. I then went to record, to see if the bands appeared in recording mode. They didn't. So I went back to playback mode and the bands had disappeared.
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
If the recorded tapes playback ok on the camera and not ok on another devices, you need to readjust the playback on this camera using a tape which playbacks fine on the other devices.
This means that is a small difference on the tape transport.
So when the supply and takeup post rollers readjusted and the audio and video playback are good, then your camera is fine.
I Had a similar problem with my 8600. Most likely the camera is also no longer recording. There were two problems I found, either one could have caused the problem. 1) the 8mm tape was not actually moving through the record/play head. With modern cameras. there are no indications that the tape is actually moving. 2) the record/play head is dirty. What I did was remove the side plate that covers the tape cassette to allow me to verify that the tape was moving properly. After that, I removed the tape, removed the battery, and used isopropyl alcohol and a q tip to clean the head. I imagine there are cleaning tapes that one can buy to do this as well. though I doubt they work as well as a q tip. THere are two screws that hold the cover on.
I had the same problem. Try this: open the LCD screen so that you can access the playback buttons.Make sure camera is in playback mode. Press the "menu" button. Select "narration" . Switch narration to "off" .Now you should hear the recorded audio when your tape is playing.
