Have no sound after recording something why?


Your only fix is to buy another camera.

The FE210 is a very low cost basic video stills camera. Although it has the ability to record video when needed it does not record audio as it lacks the hardware to do so (click here to see the Olympus model specifications which clearly show no sound recording facility listed under Movie Recording System). On your camera it's really only a free taster of video simply because the camera shares hardware with other models in the range which record both video and audio. Keeping it basic on the FE-210 keeps the price down as many users don't want to record video and so don't want to pay for unnecessary features.

I hope that my speedy answer has saved you further frustration and reassured you that you are doing nothing wrong with your camera. Please take a moment to rate my answer.

Tip

No Sound on Olympus FE-210


The reason you get no sound on playback of videos is that this camera is not equipped with a Microphone. This is one of the most confusing and disappointing features of the camera as whilst it has video capability it has absolutely no ability to record Audio.

Olympus have omitted this feature on this particular model to keep costs down and unfortunately there is absolutely nothing you can do about it in terms of adding original audio.

However, if you have a video editing program on your computer you can use this to add a voice over or even a soundtrack to the video to prevent it from being completely silent.

Unfortunately no original audio can be recorded with the FE-210 because of the omision of the microphone in the model specification by Olympus.

Hope this clarifies the issue.

Please leave a vote for the information if you found it helpful. Thanks

No sound when recording


Hi,

Unfortunately whilst this camera can record video it does not have a microphone to record sound.

This is a disappointing lack of features but is one reason used by Olympus to keep costs down on this model.

One solution is to use Video editing software on your computer to add a voice over or soundtrack to your video but it is not possible to record original audio with this camera.

Hope this information helps. If so please leave a vote for it. Thanks.

Olympus x-21 doesn't record sound with the video


I have the Olympus x-42 and had the same problem. My camera has a microphone but no speakers so i can only hear the videos which i have recorded on the camera on my computer. If your camera is the same make as mine, maybe we had the same problem?

My olympus Fe-210 wont record sound


This was done intentionally by the camera manufacturers. I agree that it is not fair but the purpose of the movie mode is not to replace a video camera. It just allows you to take short movie clips. Depending on how long you have owned the camera you might be able to exchange it for a model that does allow audio capability in movie mode as Olympus does have other FE models that allow for this feature.

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.

When recording videos on my olympus fe-170 i dont get any sound


Recording moving images. Sound is not recorded. This is clearly stated in the advanced user manual on page 12. The camera was designed without any audio capabilities.

My videos come without sound


Unfortunately, the FE-115 does not have audio capability (and the video is rather grainy as well). All my youtube videos to date have been recorded with the FE-115.
