    could you tell me how I find the recording head? Also, I presume that previous video I have taken that didn't have sound won't be able to be fixed? I'd better go and buy some rubbing alcohol!

    Thanks. Found t option but didn't help. My model is a VPC-CA65EX and there wasn't a switch off sound option under the clock setting. I've just taken the battery out. Will report back. Thanks again.

    Thanks. Where would I find the recording head?

  • lorrainesega Sep 29, 2010

    It didn't work I'm afraid.

    How do I find the recording head?

  • lorrainesega Oct 01, 2010

    As I was about to download it, trend micro systems warned against doing so. Any other suggestions?

    Where would I find the recording head. The model of my camcorder is a VPC-CA65EX.
    Thanks

  • lorrainesega Oct 03, 2010

    Hi, I tried all the options you mentioned and it didn't seem to work unfortunately. The model if my camcorder is a VPC-CA65EX. Thanks though.

  • lorrainesega Oct 03, 2010

    Thanks for the suggested solution, I was about to download Final media Player but unfortunately my PC warned against doing so telling me that it has been known to be used for fradulent activity. If I would have downloaded it, would I have then had to connect the camcorder to get it to work. I'm not comfortable downloaded the software unfortunately as I had so many warning against doing so.

    My Sanyo Xacti vpc-ca65ex no longer records sounds. Having recorded huge amounts of footage we discovered that there was no sound on playback. We checked every setting and all sounds settings were fine. Before our holiday that sound worked and we had footage on the memory card with sounds but all the footage we took on holiday had no sound and we are no longer able to film with sound.

You may have lost your sound codec, or it may have become corrupted. Go to this site, and download this program- it's free, and got my sound working again on my Sanyo:

Good luck, and hope this helps.

Get into the menu and check if the sound is not muted..if you are not sure what the feature for the sound is ..just reset it all ...make a reset to the factory settings ..and if it is just a setting issue this should fix it ..Usually there is a reset to factory defaults or settings in the main menu ..if you do not find any ..try to remove the batteries and put them back after a while ...If it asks you for time and date settings it means it was reset ..if it not asking ..it means that has an internal battery and it has to have a reset feature in the menu ..

    by the way ..I checked and the sound (on and off ) will be in the menu just under the clock setting ..

    My Sanyo VPC CA65 has just stopped recording sound also
    There is no sound record on/off feature - only playback volume adjustment
    There is a reset option - but it does not solve the issue
    there are no recording heads to clean - this model is digital, there are no moving parts ( you clean heads if you are recoding to tape) this model uses SD cards
    I see that the microphones are built into the back of the LCD screen where it says 'Xacti'

SOURCE: Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD1- doesn't do anything in record mode

As I have been writing on other HD1/2 problems, sometimes it can be the card which is an issue. If the card is too slow or perhaps corrupted then the device can find it difficult to record.

This and other soft faults (that are reperable by turning the power on and off, changing or reinserting the card, removing the battery) are often indicated by a flashing red recording light.

Sounds tasty! ;)

Just kidding. What kind of stReaky images is it recording? Is the problem that you are using it in bad light (eg indoors at night)? It could just be camera shake.

Make sure that your camera is in auto mode and try again - if it was in a slow shutter speed mode, then this could be more of a problem. Also try using flash, if you camera has one.

The sound is not recorded when filming, we have only had the camera just over a year....any ideas, or who can we call? Thank you. (Sanyo Xacti XA9)


Hi natalieaylet ,


Firstly i would recommend you to check if the microphone settings have been accidentally turned off , many times the sound is not recorded because of this issue.
Please don't let people experiment with your camera as they could do damage to your camera.
So where you felt there was a problem , you will have a big problem , as a result of experimentation.

If you feel that nothing works , even after changing the settings and restarting the camera, i would recommend you to dial the number provided on the user manual usually, which will help you with the nearest service center details so that you can get your problem fixed by an expert.

Hope this helps ...:)

Well i have a Sanyo J1 Xacti Digital camera and i lost the CD with the software to download the pictures from camera to Computer. Is there any site where i can get download it? Thanks


Try Sanyo.com - look for support button.

Most newer computers with newer operating systems will detect a camera/camcorder when connected to USB. Have you tried it without the disk?

I have an older Xacti that records to SD card. You can use a flash card reader to transfer files without Sanyo software.

You could plug the card into your computer using a card reader and then right-click on it. Click on properties and it will give you the used and unused space.
