Canon Optura 40 - no sound on playback

I am not able to get sound on playback on the camcorder's built in speakers. Also, the camcorder no longer beeps when I turn it on. I tried changing the settings with no success.

    for eight years no problem. Now it pixelates some of the footage and splits it into a small portion at the bottom- no sound. I am unable to get the baby pictures of my kids.......have played head cleaning cassette-no change.....

    can any one help?

Try a cleaning tape. Buy a good quality cleaning tape (Panasonic makes one) and remember: cleaning tapes are abrasive so don't overuse it! Overuse can result in the need to replace the rotating drum assy in the camcorder. I'll bet a cleaning tape takes care of your problem.

It should work well with Apple iMovie that came with your mac. There is a new version (imovie 09) that is said to be a major improvement over imovie 08 (the version that likely came with your computer). It is part of the iLife suite of multimedia Apple software. Available for $79 from the apple store. Here's a link to the store page. Buy now

Optura Xi no longer reads audio or video


Dear Movie maker,
Well seeing you did have only drop-outs in sound, but did get a picture, now you have nothing.
This does look like you have moved quite a bit of the dirt within camera pic/sound heads, I did say moved (not removed) because these dry cleaning things we use today do only move dirt not get shut of it.
I think you should put that cleaner in camera again, and give it a really good run through, let me know how that goes okay?
