    I thank you so very much for your time and advice but I have no external plug in. I was simply recording then transferring to my computer and the playing....could there be a loose wire possibly inside camera...not that I'd feel qualified to tear into it...proably gonna need to take it to repairman but not sure it's worth the cost...should perhaps just invest same amount into new camera,,,I just don't know...but it certainly is aggravating right now especially.....Thank You and God Bless...Shelb...

    I tried the tapping and it did improve the sound slightly....I guess I need to find a repair service and take it in.

    Thanks for your time and suggestions so very much...wish we lived closer I'd bring my camera to you ...:). CA.

    I'd like to purchase a camcoder for around $300.00-$400.00...I'm not sure of any of them as to the best for my money and simple or convienent to use...might I get a suggestion from you ...I noticed you have offered suggestions on repairing quite a few different brands...
    All those brands confuses me ....

    Thank you once more sHELB

    Thank you for your info ...I decided upon a Panasonic Palmcoder VDR-D210 DVD 32X Zoom Digital Camcoder. The idea of recording straight to the dvd apealked to me. Hope I will be pleased with selection. I more or less closed my eyes and pointed to a picture. :)

    Have a Good Day and God Bless...

Maybe there's a loose mic connection. try plugging an external mic, possibly the loose connection is in the ext mic input.

    As a repairman that kind of trouble isnt big deal for me. i dont charge too much for that. try tapping side by side, or jarring but not to the extent of destroying your unit. [;0)

    you may try earphone, headphone, earbud and the likes in place of ext mic. If you can monitor the recording in your tv there should be feedback( an ear tearing sound specially when tv volume is high.) hope it will help, God bless you to.

    those brands are really good compared to each other, get only what fits your taste and lifestyle, there are brands with EASY switch, GREEN mode switch ( for non professionals), and compose switch mode (pro use only), more features less price of course is always a winner. they last around three years, but dont worry, by that time they are already obsolete, actually they upgrade their models every 3 to six months!

ONKYO TX-SR608 I need to have my volumne up over 40 to get any sound and around 55 to listen to my home theatre on 5.1 . Does this sound normal? Also, how can I view the volumne when using Zone 2? I...

Yes it is normal, the 608 is a THX certified receiver, so it goes by THX reference levels.

In theory once you have run the Audyssey auto-setup with the included mic the proper reference level for watching movies will be 82 if the volume number scale is set absolute or 0dB of it is set to THX relative. At this setting the volume should be the same as watching that movie at the theater. I have mine set to power-on at a level of -30dB which corresponds to level 52 on the scale you have it set to. This is a comfortable lowish level, but I turn it up to at least -10dB AKA 72 when watching movies.

My olympus Fe-210 wont record sound

This was done intentionally by the camera manufacturers. I agree that it is not fair but the purpose of the movie mode is not to replace a video camera. It just allows you to take short movie clips. Depending on how long you have owned the camera you might be able to exchange it for a model that does allow audio capability in movie mode as Olympus does have other FE models that allow for this feature.

Can't hear audio on video playback (neither direct from camera nor from pc)

This is because the camera is not capable to record the sound. The camera was not designed with any audio speakers to be able to record and playback sound recorded during movie mode.

Can't transfer dubbed audio (secondary sound) using firewire.

Audio Dubbing on DV: Here's how you do this: Play your tape on the TRV-9 and feed the signal into the TRV-900, using the Firewire connector. Set the TRV-900's audio option to record in the 12-bit mode. When this is done, you will have the video re-recorded on the TRV-900 and the audio laid down on the primary 12-bit audio channel. Then, you can run the tape back through for a 2nd pass in the TRV-900, with the recorder set to the audio-dubbing mode. The audio you put into the TRV-900 this time, will be recorded on the secondary 12-bit channel. You can select either 12-bit channel when you play the edited tape back or you can mix both stereo channels into the output. Once you record on the 16-bit channel, you can't dub audio back onto that recording, without erasing the original channel, as the recording space for both 12-bit channels is occupied. You can't selectively re-record just audio onto the 16-bit channel either, without the video being re-recorded along with it. Both video and audio are sent over the same Firewire connector, so you can't input them from mixed sources, as you can with analog recordings. Only the secondary 12-bit audio channel can be used in the audio-dubbing mode. You can't dub onto the 16-bit channel or onto the primary 12-bit channel. The primary 12-bit channel can be used only when you're recording video along with it.

Movie mode function

The movie mode function allows you to record short movie clips. The recorded movies can be played back or stored as still images using the cameras index function. Please note that the D-390 does not record sound in the movie mode.
