When recording audio through video or photos with sound, the sound recorded is very noisy. Its like extreme wind noise. You can still just hear the other sounds recorded, so the mic is still picking up sound, but its overpowered by the noise.

My question is, do you hear music when you play a record, or is only "wind" coming out of the speakers?
The player was build in 1964 with Germanium transistors. These transistors are known for their noise level. But in those days nobody noticed this, because all transistor amplifies had noise.
If there is no sound at all, only noise, it can't be that difficult to repair the amplifier. There must be some schematics around on the net. Be aware you need a Xtal PU element and it won't be easy to get one of these.
I found an interesting page on the net. It is a pity the schematic is not 100% clear. 3006 Mk Player Ferguson Radio Corporation Ltd London
The problem is the microphone on the camera. The mic on the camera is for recording sound in more normal environments. The sound level on a typical concert is much higher than normal, and the mic on the camera just doesn't have what it takes to record sound at those levels.
One possible solution is to record the sound with a dedicated audio recording device, and combine the video and audio in your video editing software.
The microphone is located on the front of the camera, just behind the flash pop-up button. As far as I can tell there's no way to turn it off, but you can easily strip the audio out and replace it using video editing software on a computer.
That's probably the best way to eliminate wind noise as well. Remember that the camera is primarily an image recording device. Leave the sound recording to a device better suited for it, with a microphone shielded by a wind screen. Or record the sound in a studio. But then we're getting into real money, the way "real" filmmakers work.
This camera has a single Mic - make sure your finger isn't over it though -- try making a recording in a closed room - no wind noise - is there still static ??
Go through settings and see what choices there are -- like outdoor , indoor . close to subject etc.
My CAM had a close up and background button - which was a sensitivity setting - and the background setting picked up EVERY sound from miles around and filled the tape with noise.
The close up setting only picked up sound from bout 2 - 3 meters.
Do you also have an external plug for a Mic ? this would also check whether it's the camera mic or recording that is at fault ??
No, sorry. This camera has a small glitch where it occasionally records video without sound, especially if it has been on for a while. In order to fix this, you can simply turn the camera off and on when it is recording without sound.
Videos with sound is possible or you can record sound memos as well
Recording and Playing Sound Memos You can record and play back sound memos for your photos while you view them on the LCD screen. 1. Turn the Mode dial to playback mode. 2. Press the MENU button. Playback Menu 1 is displayed. 3. Select Sound Memo by using the u d buttons, then press the r button. 4. Press the OK button and then start recording. 5. When you are finished recording, press the OK button. You can play or delete the sound memo or record a new memo. 6. Press the MENU button twice to exit the menu. When you play back a photo that includes a sound memo, the icon appears on the screen. Press the OK button to play the sound. Note: You must have at least one photo saved to record a sound memo.
