Re: Recording

The microphone on most of these slip cameras are very small and it is possible your finger or hand was over it. And to be honest since this microphone is so small the quality is not going to be very good at all. I don't know if there really is a solution to this outside of buying a high end camera if sound quality is so important.

How to get the hum out of the sound on this camera

What make and model camera? Many cameras only have a tiny microphone on the camera body, which picks up the sound of the camera. The only way to get really clean sound is to use a separate audio recording system, using a device designed from the beginning to capture sound. Keep in mind that the camera is primarily designed to capture images. Sound recording is simply a side effect for many cameras.

Unable to read mode. It remains in recording mode whatever mode I select.

After years of use these wear out just like anything else, if the camera is 10 years old it is going to cost you more to have it repaired than it will cost to replace it. 10 years is a long time, and the price for repairs will be sky high.

It stops recording by itself!

Two possible causes...your card is not a class 6 or better...card needs to be optimized by formatting it in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics first.

1st check you video in the computer.
If you hear a sound, i think your problem in your internal speaker or in the motherboard.It' simple if the problem in the speaker.Just change it.But if the motherboard is trouble, i can't help you.Maybe one resistor is dead/not properly work.
If you don't hear sound. May be you have a mix problem.Change it.
I warning u, be carefull dissambling the camera. Before you do that, you must have sparepart. If you don't, you can bring it to service.

Unfortunately this camera was not designed to record sound during movie recording. The camera was not designed with any audio input or output speakers.

Sound on Video?

Hey Alymac,
Digital still cameras are not designed to record high quality audio. The mic used to record the audio is probably OK for normal audio situations, but not for difficult recording situations like concerts. To get a good quality video that has good quality audio I would invest in a high quality digital camcorder. What your camera was picking up is all the atmospheric noise that is going on around you. You probably didn't notice it because a concert is usually a loud environment. To get a good quality recording of a concert you would need a mic that focuses where it picks up its audio from instead of from all sounds surrounding you.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Can't turn on my camera!


I have a link and some information I found on the video option to your camera. This link is for the manual located on

The following is how to stop video:
To stop recording video, press and release the Video
button again; otherwise, the video will continue recording
until the camera runs out of memory.

If you have set the camera to Self-Timer or Self-Timer -
2 Shots (see Using the Self-Timer Settings on page 44),
the camera will start recording 10 seconds after you press
the Video button. However, with the Self-Timer - 2 Shots
setting, the camera only records one video clip.

After recording has stopped, the first frame of the video clip
appears on the Image Display. While it is processing, you can
delete the video clip by pressing the Menu/OK button

Good luck and please let me know if there is anything else i can hep you with--feedback would be geat.. thanks, d
