Go to the mixer controls. Press the advanced button under the mic mixer control and turn off the mic boost. If the advanced button isn't on, go to control panel, select sound, and make sure that enable advanced features is turned on for both your sound card and your microphone device.

Sound is not recording. Video is OK


hi,
some models have trouble with microphones, if your cam has an external microphone jack, use a mic and confirm, in some cases the dust or dirt on the head also causes, use a cleaner cassette.

Distorted crackling Sound Recording


Hi this is a fault alot of people have it usually starts to happen when you have been recording and then a loud noise has happened this then damages the mic on the camcorders.
The problem you might have is going to be getting a new mic fitted as alot of the newer camcorders they dont sell replacement parts unless its a top of the range one but if the parts are not available then their is no way of repairng it the bets thing to try is look in the phone book or online for a camera repair shop or even ring a camera shop up and ask them if their are parts available for your camcorder let me know if you need further assistance

I have a TRV98 Hi8. Trying to convert Video 8 tapes to digital. Sound comes from the camcorder, but no sound coming through the converter to the computer. Using the s-video cord?


An S-VHS cable only carries video signals. You must connect a separate audio cable from the camera to the sound input on your computer. On a Windows computer this would be the Mic input, usually marked in pink. You may also have to make sure that the computer has the mic input turned on, which in Windows would involve the sound Mixer. The standard Windows mixer is accessed by double-clicking the little speaker symbol in the "tray" at the bottom right, but many sound cards have their own mixer utilities.

When we record on to a mini DV tape and then import it into the computer all we hear for the sound is usually a loud beeping or muffled audio and then the screaming beep. We tried another microphone and...


Hello, You hav kind of confused the issue here, one of these mic's is not working and some are. So do we assume that with some microphones the problem is not there?

If that is so I would think there is an impedance mismatch between one of the mic's to the impedance input to the camera, or the plug from the camera is faulty

What setting do i use to run my cordles mic in to audio 1


Without more clarification I am assuming that you have the onboard mic plugged in normally & I don't know where the RF mic is connected.

First thing is that we know that you get sound from the shotgun mic in ch. 1. If you do not plan on using the onboard shotgun, then the fix is easy! Since it has been confirmed that ch. 1 works, just disconnect your shotgun & plug in the RF receiver to that, check your levels, and shoot away.

If you are still wanting to use that shotgun along with the RF, then I suggest that you re-read pages 51 - 54 of the instruction manual. You can find where to jack in, how to set, and change audio levels on these pages. Good Luck!

MY JOB DEPENDS ON THIS!!! SONY DSR PD170 AUDIO PROBLEMS


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

The Sony PD170 is not an everyday equipment, nonetheless, I will assume that on the Sony DSR PD170:
  • the Samson UHF M32 receiver is plugged to Audio 1;
  • boom mic is plugged to Audio 2; (or vice versa) and
  • Both Audio 1 & 2 are using the XLR connectors.
Assuming that your boom mic is a conventional dynamic, on the Audio Control Panel, pls set:
  • INPUT 1 -
  • MIC CH SELECT CH1&CH2
  • INPUT LEVEL MIC
  • +48 OFF
  • INPUT 2 -
  • INPUT LEVEL MIC
  • +48 OFF
This is of course assuming that both the boom mic and the output of the Samson UHF M32 receiver are set to MIC level. In some instances the Samson UHF M32 receiver requires a LINE setting. The only time the +48 is set to ON is when the mic that is used/plug in requires phantom power such as condenser types. If the mic or the Samson UHF M32 receiver requires power then this should be switched ON otherwise, there will be no audio coming in. Though most M32 uses a 9 volts battery.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Regarding the canon hv20 camcorder. When using an external canon MIC a) How do you know the mic is working and you are not picking up sound on the internal MIC b)On connecting the external MIC an icon...


If you put the camcorder in manual mode, there is a microphone sensor that will move when sound is picked up by the external microphone. In manual you can keep everything else automatic. The off for the mic means that the built in mic is turned off when an external mic is attached.

Sound doesn't transfer from camera into computer


It most likely IS the .mov file. I recommend buying quicktime pro, $20,  which will allow you to convert the file, or if you get the free version of quicktime, and the video and audio play fine with it, You can use a screen recorder and turn off the "record external Mic" mode, and turn ON "Record Computer Audio" Once you're done converting (or recording) You can go ahead and edit, Hoped this helped- sincerely: animation508 (youtub username)
