My new Nikon P600 make a lot of electric noise on video recording, what could be wrong?


If it is the noise you are recording with the video, perhaps you should try to use an external microphone. The camera is not the best form and place to fit a microphone in. You always will pick up noise you don't want.

Sound noise feedback during recording


Noise can be a big problem when trying to record into a computer. Reducing and canceling out noise using several simple techniques will help increase recording quality and increase your satisfaction with recordings. Solutions range from complete room overhauls to simple changes in the placement of the microphone and other objects in the recording.


Use a stabilized microphone to reduce vibrations. Many hand-held or headset microphones will pick up on vibrations and movements from the user. These vibrations can carry over into the recording and reduce the quality of the recording. Using a microphone stand or stationary microphone will reduce noise while recording. Mic stands will help increase recording quality and off a possible solution that requires very little financial investment. Set up a designated sound room that is set away from the rest of your home. The farther the recording area is from windows and doorways, the better. Windows allow very small amounts of noise to filter in from the outdoors and create white noise in the recording. Hang blankets on the walls around the recording station and use many rough objects in the recording room. Sound travels in waves that bounce back and forth between smooth objects. Blankets and other rough objects will help reduce sound vibrations. These additions to the recording room will reduce ambient sounds from both the room and outside the building by blocking sound waves from bouncing back and forth in the room. If you can make a considerable investment in the room, there are several acoustic products on the market than help nearly eliminate echoes and outside noises. Install software that filters out unwanted sounds and echoes. Many computer applications exist that use programs to increase the quality of recordings and reduce the ambient noise levels in a recording room. Software is used to reduce echoes and feedback in a recording studio. Several free applications can be used to achieve the desired effects when recording. A program called Audacity is one of the most effective software packages that can help reduce noise in recordings. http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ Software can also be used to reduce electronic humming and other white noise that can be picked up during a recoding session. Buy a high-quality microphone with noise and echo cancellation. One of the best investments that a recording specialist can make is a high-quality mic. The microphone itself can reduce many unwanted noises and echoes in the recording room by filtering the actual sounds that are recorded.

Sometimes my AKG Perception 420 won't record properly, when played back it sounds like white noise with the faintest sound of what i'm trying to record in the background


All microphones have a signal to noise ratio. Basically defined as the level of desired sound to background noise (unwanted sound). Microphone phones also have self noise which should be considered when choosing a mic. There will be noise in every mic, some more audible than others. Condenser microphones require phantom power (48V). This can be supplied by mic prea
mps, mixers, and similar equipment. *Note that phantom power (mic pre amps) must be on or engaged, this can be specific to different types of equipment.
Troubleshooting:Has your microphone been dropped or exposed to moisture? Internal damage to your microphone will be hard to assess but this could possibly be the issue. Inspect the microphone cable, check for damages. Try using a another microphone cable-- preferably a new one. Next to check would be your mic's power supply. Make sure all connections are made properly (mic to cable to power supply). If you are using a mixer or pre amp with multiple inputs, test the mic on each input. (You should test by making recordings and comparing with each change to isolate possible causes). Also test the mixer or pre amp by slowly sweeping the input gain feature while recording an audible source such as singing into the microphone. Typically next in the audio recording chain would be your DAW (digital audio workstation) or computer, but problems with noise most likely precede this.
I could possibly provide more useful information if I know your exact setup.
Provided that you have your equipment setup properly, the microphone or mixer/preamp could possibly be damaged/malfunctioning. I suggest taking your equipment to a trusted repair shop, or if still under warranty, returning to the manufacturer for repairs or replacement.
Hope this helps

Toshiba laptop Microphone Not working or Non-existant?


Click Start/All Programs/Accessories/Sound Recorder. Click Start Recording and talk to your computer in a normal voice. When you finish click Stop Recording. Type in a file name and click save. Open the file and play it. If it works you have a built in mike, otherwise buy yourself an external, which I recommend anyway, because the built in mikes are generally not good enough for voice recognition or VOIP.
