Channel Two Input silent

Audio input Channel one works fine. Audio input Channel two is silent. Is there some adjustment I'm missing or is this a repair problem?

On the XLR attachment. Make sure the Rec CH Select is clicked up to CH1 - CH2. If it is down on CH1 only that might account for your problem. Audio will only record on CH1. To get stereo click the switch to up. Monitor the incoming sound with the audio level switch at the back of the camera. You should see level on 1 & 2.

Not sure of particular model, but if it's like z1 then it's convoluted and non-intuitive.
But here goes.. if i can remember.
Go into menu, then audio
check that the channels aren't linked
if set to manual check manual adjustment wheels
The z1 doesn't seem to allow on board mic and xlrs, so check that
Does mic need phantom power?
Is XLR input set to mic?
Sorry i can't be more model specific... but hopefully something of this will be helpfull.. the main thing to check tho is that the xlrs aren't linked

I am trying to playback videos on my JVC Everio Camcorder using the colored AV cords. I hear the audio coming through my TV but there is no video/picture. I have tried adjusting the settings and tried...


First, set [SWITCH TO ANALOG I/O] to [OUTPUT]
then turn off the (camcorder) unit.

After you connect the cable (from AV connector to the TV's AV Input Connector (accepting the 3 color cables), set the TV to VIDEO mode, selecting the AV input (from your Camcorder).
Then start your playback on the camcorder ...
slide the mode switch to select the (video) mode (instead of the picture/photo mode)... press the PLAY/REC to select the playback mode, and select the desired files/frames to play.

Hope this works for you. Have you tried using the HDMI mini connector instead ? (same process, just set your TV to accept input from the HDMI input)

HOW DO YOU CONNECT TO THE TV


You look for the video and audio outputs available from your camera, the standard analog type are video composite (yellow RCA connector) and audio L channel (white RCA connector), R channel (red RCA connector), if the audio output is mono, you should have a black RCA connector, the you should look the corresponding inputs at your TV set and select them. If you have a digital output, usually a firewire connection, you should look for the cable and corresponding input at your TV set.

How do i get sound through my tv once the camcorder is connected to it,


Are you connecting the audio RCA cables to the camera and TV and selecting the correct audio input ?

I had a similar problem with missing audio. In my case I am using a surround sound audio system and had to connect the audio cables directly to the Suround sytem and change the audio input.

Panasonic dvx1000a has no audio input, for xlr connector, the switch line mic is in mic pos. and the external mic not work in that camera.


You have to switch the CH1 and CH2 switches inside the lcd display to input 1 or input 2 to control the xlr inputs. If these switches are in int (L) and int(R) position, then you are adjusting the audio on the CH1 ad CH2 dials below the lcd viewer on the outside of the lcd for the on camera mic. Only use line setting on the front of the camera when you are receiving an audio feed at line level from an audio board. If you set the camera to mic setting, and you are receiving a line level audio signal, you will blow out the audio 0 way too loud, if you are receiving a mic signal and your switch is set to line, you will not be able to hear the mic with the audio Ch1 and ch2 all the way up.

Sound recording with external microphone


An instruction manual is available for download at www.canon.com
Your camera, according to the manual, has a single input for microphones, and in the internal menu, AUDIO DUB has to be set to MIC. IN. when using an add-on microphone. An MA-300 hot-shoe microphone accessory can be used, and then the input controls would be on this device, not the camera. Your camera can also record in two different audio qualities: 16-bit two channel or 12-bit four channel. If you are using an accessory you may need to select 12-bit in the internal setup menu in order to have enough channels to add on the additional microphone(s).
Finally, and hopefully not, the camera may have an internal hardware problem, and so would need to be serviced.

Mic input


have seen a couple of these cameras with this problem.  a defective board inside the camera is the culprit. the board itself costs around $500 plus the labor to replace it.

Watching tapes on TV


To connect your camcorder to a TV (or VCR), you'll need audio/video cables. These need to be run from the VIDEO and AUDIO jacks on the camcorder to the VIDEO and AUDIO inputs on the TV (or VCR). Once cabling is completed, follow either of these scenarios: When connecting the camcorder directly to the TV, turn on the TV and tune it to the video input channel by pressing the INPUT button on your remote control. # When connecting the camcorder to a VCR that is already connected to a TV: Turn on the VCR and place it in the Line or Camera mode. # Operate the TV as you normally do to see the signal coming from the VCR. Select camcorders have an S-VIDEO jack, which offers higher video quality. Provided your TV or VCR has an S-VIDEO input jack, connect the camcorder to the TV or VCR using an S-VIDEO cable. Since the S-VIDEO cable only transfers video, you will also need to use an audio cable. Select the S-VIDEO input on your TV or VCR to view the signal coming from the camcorder.
