Question about Logitech Webcam

1 Answer

Camera records loud background noise.

After recording a video, the playback has this loud background noise that I don't hear when recording. Also, when using applications like Skype and ooVoo the microphone has a "screaming" static.

As far as I know there is no way to adjust the microphone's sensitivity on this model. Make sure you are recording in a relatively quiet environment as these cameras' microphones tend to pick up everything and can generate a lot of background noise in your recordings. If you still feel like you need to shout into the mic to hear anything then you should look into getting your camera service by an authorized Canon service center. Hope this helps!

Why cant i hear the noise when i playback what i recorded?


The FE-4000 lacks a loudspeaker. You can record sound on movie clips but you cannot hear it unless you play back after uploading the video to a host pc.

I have a canon sd 1100 camera with video recording. It no longer records the sound with teh video and I don't know if I hit a button or if it just broke. any thoughts?


If you're not hearing anything on playback on the camera, try pressing the up-arrow during playback to increase the volume. If you're not hearing anything on playback on a computer (and neither the viewer nor the computer are on mute) then something is broken on the camera, causing it not to record audio.

Can't hear audio on video playback (neither direct from camera nor from pc)


This is because the camera is not capable to record the sound. The camera was not designed with any audio speakers to be able to record and playback sound recorded during movie mode.

I recorded my professors lecture and the recorder was right next to her, when I listen back I can barely hear a thing all there is is her voice but muffled because it sounds like a loud wind


During Playback you can press + or - buttons to adjust the volume. Maybe this is your problem. If you need more info watch video instructions chapters for Olympus on http://www.HandBookLive.com under Electronics-> Audio. There are 20 different video chapters. The info about + - buttons for volume during playback was chapter 7 (Playback)

Panasonic AG-455 Problem


The noise is most likely bad bearings in the video head assembly. No longer available from Panasonic. The b/w recording problem is most likely caused by a bad video board inside the camera. Unfortunately, the video board is also no longer available.
