Ok, if i record mself singing and upload it to the computer...will i be able to here me sing there or not at all???


Welcome to Fixya. All digitals camera has a features of video recordings, however they have the difference when you try to review or watch it thru the camera itself. I have the same camera as yours, First I thought that my camera was damaged because I don't hear any sounds at all when I'm trying to view/watch my brother's gradustion day. When I try to transfer all the data on my computer, thinking that trying to re-format the camera will be the resolution for my issue to hear the sounds of my recordings. While listening to a music while reviewing my pictures on the computer, I heard a different sounds, then when I try to pause my music, I'm happy to hear that its my brother's video on his graduation.

The answer to your question if your going to upload your video on your computer, YES! you can hear the sounds of your recordings thru your computer.

Please let me know if you have any question.

Thank you for using Fixya,

When I record a video, the camera does not record the sound

This is caused by one of two things.
The first thing is that you might have accidentally activated the mute function and as a result, it cannot record the sound of the environment since the mic has been de-activated.
The second and most likely thing is that your mic is faulty and can also not record the sound in your environment.
You can try to restore the default settings and see if there is any change as the mic settings may have been altered but if it doesn't then you have to send it to an expert technician to help you change the mic.
Hope this solution helped you? Please comment if you need more information and thank you for using

I cant hear the videos i have recorded on my camera i have installed it all but cant hear any volume to play back the video on the camera and my laptop

The 7024 is designed primarily as a still camera, with some video features grafted on. As such it captures images not sounds. You can add a soundtrack using video editing software on a computer, but you cannot record one on this camera.

Why cant I hear any recorded sound from my recorded videos.

make sure that when the recording wsa made the mic was not blocked or there is dirt inthe mic cavity.
clean and make a recording to check, if not the audio recording within the phone is defective.

When i record a video i cant hear any sound ..

The ViviCam is designed primarly as a still camera. It does not record any sound. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer, you just can't record one on the camera.

That probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

How do i make the sound record when I'm using the movie section on my camera


please note that the C913 hasn't got any speakers. When you use the video record section of your camera, the cam record the sound but when you want to hear the sound you have to transfer the video to your pc. When you use the camera review mode you won't hear any sound because the camera has no speakers ;-)

From the manual:
"To hear audio, transfer the video to your computer."

The camera doesn't play the audio, though it records it. You need to transfer the video to a computer in order to hear it.

Sound Problem when recording

Your digital camera is not a professional recording device. A live gig, especially indoors, or if you're close to the stage, means very high decibels, and you need something more serious if you really want to hear it later. You should get a recording device that can tune to different sensitivities. My old mini disc was great for this before it died. You also need a decent mic. Better luck next time! who was performing btw?
