Question about Canon PowerShot SD630 Digital ELPH / IXUS 65 Digital Camera

In movie mode, my sound is "in front" of the movie

We LOVE the movie mode and make little clips all the time. All of a sudden, yesterday, during playback I noticed that the sound is not in synch with the picture, it seems to be in front of the picture ... so that the ending few seconds is all silence. I thought I'd load the clips onto my computer and perhaps play them their, but they are still out of synch. I charged the battery, thinking it was just tired and not synching picture to sound was a battery problem, but it's still out of synch. Can you help? Thanks! Janie

This may not mean much, so look really hard at the instruction manual but If the audiostream was recorded at 48,000Hz, change it to 44,100Hz... but if that way over your head try this easy way: in the menu look to find image quality and audio quality, when you are here either do as i have asked above or change your visual settings from high to normal, also if you have any of those menu items up on the lcd when you are taking the clip get rip of hem, as in my experience they slow down the processing power of the IC and these IC are made to process pixels not sound, so eventually after 40frames there is an overlap. good luck by the way!

My Vizio LCD TV screen fades to dark. Sound stays on.

I w having this same issue when watching a Blu-Ray disc. I found it to be dependent upon what picture mode the TV was set to. By this I mean certain picture modes would cause the TV to dim during dark scenes of a movie. Changing the picture mode helped a lot.

This may sound like a dumb question, but are you sure that you had the camera set to the video recording mode? Several of the Canon digital PowerShots will show the movie icon on the LCD screen even when the camera is in image record mode. Why, I don't know. Ensure that you set the camera into movie mode by pressing your Func/Set button to go into the Function Menu and then selecting the movie mode that you want to shoot in. Press the Func/Set button again to get out of the Function Menu and you will not only see a movie camera icon on the LCD screen, but also a set of numbers in the bottom left hand corner representing the recording resolution (e.g. 640 pixels) and the frames per second (e.g. 30).

And just in case you did have the camera set in movie mode, make sure that you don't do what many people have inadvertantly done and mistake the video clip for a .jpg image in the playback screen. Videos will of course have the movie camera icon in the upper corner of the image and are viewed by pressing the Set button twice to begin the playback.

If both of these steps were performed properly then your camera may have a hardware issue. As a last resort, try performing a reset from within the menu just to be on the safe side and see if it makes a difference. If not you may need service. Hope this helps.
