No sound with movies

I have a canon powershot S80. The sound has suddenly stopped working when I playback a movie (both on the camera and when I've downloaded the movie to my computer). How can I fix the sound?

Make sure that you don't block the microphone with your finger while shooting a movie. The microphone is a small opening just forward of the shutter button.

If the microphone is clear and you are still not getting sound, it may be that the microphone or connections to the processor have gone bad.

I DONT HAQVE ANY SOUND WHEN I PLAY BACK THE MOVIES , ON MY CANON POWERSHOT SD1200IS


Check to make sure "Mute" is off. Go to Menu and then the tab with the tools on it (it should be yellow-orange). The first option is "Mute." Make sure you set it to off when you playback movies.

Playback for movies on digital camera plats way too fast


I had the same problem. You have the recording setting on time lapse and there is no sound.
Set the recording on to standard by turning the round wheel at the back of your camera. I did not read the manual until I had this problem and I ended up making useless fast videos with no sound. Hope I am right?

I need help with my canon s80 how do i make it do video?


Turn the mode dial to the movie mode (right next to the letter C). Half press the shutter button to set focus and exposure, then fully press the button to begin shooting. Press the shutter button again to stop shooting. If you want to change the size or frame rate of the movie frames, use the menu. If you need user manuals, they are available for download here.

Canon PowerShot A420 Digital Camera. When I make a movie how come there is no sound, how do I turn the sound on?


The Canon PowerShot A420 has NO MICROPHONE. That's the reason why you don't have sound on your movies.

The Canon PowerShot A430 does have a microphone! So with that camera you can make movies with sound. You just can't do that with the A420. Sorry!

Lizzie,

This may sound like a dumb question, but are you sure that you had the camera set to the video recording mode? Several of the Canon digital PowerShots will show the movie icon on the LCD screen even when the camera is in image record mode. Why, I don't know. Ensure that you set the camera into movie mode by pressing your Func/Set button to go into the Function Menu and then selecting the movie mode that you want to shoot in. Press the Func/Set button again to get out of the Function Menu and you will not only see a movie camera icon on the LCD screen, but also a set of numbers in the bottom left hand corner representing the recording resolution (e.g. 640 pixels) and the frames per second (e.g. 30).

And just in case you did have the camera set in movie mode, make sure that you don't do what many people have inadvertantly done and mistake the video clip for a .jpg image in the playback screen. Videos will of course have the movie camera icon in the upper corner of the image and are viewed by pressing the Set button twice to begin the playback.

If both of these steps were performed properly then your camera may have a hardware issue. As a last resort, try performing a reset from within the menu just to be on the safe side and see if it makes a difference. If not you may need service. Hope this helps.


Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

Downloading movies from PowerShot SD850 IS to Mac G5


Sounds like you are watching the thumbnails but the files are still on the camera... try downloading/transfering via iphoto.. the files should show up in your iphoto library and if you double click them, it will launch quicktime and allow you to play it...
let me know if that gets you there...

Unless your an electronics expert, you run a very high degree (89-100%) of probability that the camera will never work again. If your cameras aren't under warranty, than call the canon north america offices, and explain the problem they will more than likely work with you considering this is a wildly popular problem with this specific model.

Canon SD 700 IS Movie Sound Issue


This is because of low light and low frame rates in the camera. It records the sound on time but the picture delays. In the camera's video menu, choose a higher frame rate to help this a little. Honestly though, If you want to shoot better video get a video camera.
