Nikon D90 Playback Sound

First, make sure you're recording sound. In the Shooting Menu, check Movie settings/Sound and make sure it's turned on.

Then, while playing back a video, press zoom-in (the magnifying glass icon) to increase the volume.

Yes. However, the camera cannot playback the sound when playing the video, and the optical zoom is disabled while recording sound.

For full details, see the "Recording sound when shooting movies" section on page 36 of the manual.

I shoot a video with my Kodak Easyshare camera, and It will not have sound. I have tried looking at the menue, and it already says "All camera sounds On" but there is no sound. How do I put sound...

Since the camera has a microphone it can record sound but there is no speaker so you can't hear anything during playback on the camera. You have to transfer/copy your videos to a computer (with speakers) and then play them back there to actually hear the recorded sounds.

Sound is barely audible even on high setting. Is this normal?

Yes I am also having same problem. Kodak M550 is basically still photo shooting camera. It is not video player. If you will play that recording on pc or other any equipment you will hear good sound. It records normal speaking better not best quality.

Why is there no sound when I play my videos back on my camera and when I import them onto my computer. I cant hear anything


This camera does not have a Mic - so it does not have capability to record or playback sound. It will record video but it will be completely mute on playback.

Thanks for using FixYa.

No sound when recording video

Did you set up the camera to capture sound? This Camera has a Functions menu which is deep as the ocean, and standard movie capture does not also pick up sound. Additionally, if playing the movie back over an external device, use the A/V cable not USB, and get a High Capacity SD/MMC memory card if you want more than a few moments of video with sound. I would finally recommend an audio input device, as even when in Movie sound capture mode, the volume is never very loud.

How do i get sound to work in recorded movies

Some cameras you CANNOT play back on the camera, but it only works on the computer. Nothing is wrong, because that camera is basic. So yeah.
