    T charcois: I'm using Fixya because I don't want to send it to a technician. The camera works well, I just want to get rid of the noise, myself.

  • ron0911 Aug 30, 2008

    This is a sound not a picture problem.

    your answer on the hissing sound is poor and even ridiculous - all you have is a playback volume control and it does't effect a bid the computer playback - please give an intelligent sollution.

The common problem that can be detected and fixed without much hassle is the digital camera lens. Most of the time it is due to careless handling or improper setting that the lens ceases to function leaving you baffled over the matter. Most of the time, it is due to the improper alignment of the lens. You will encounter system error messages on the LCD. In such circumstances the camera is not able to focus and the result is worse pictures. You can simply realign the lens or reset the zoom barrel guide pins and you will find your digital camera working as usual.

There are some other minor and common problems such as broken battery cover, broken hinges on memory card doors, cracked LCDs, etc. But if you are not sure about the problem, it is wise not to handle it. Rather you can take your digital camera to an authorized repairing center.

However, before visiting any repairing center or technician you must take check certain common things. There may be some minor problems that you can identify yourself such as:

1 - Sometimes, it is very likely that you might have hit the wrong button or have changed the menu for which the device does not work properly.

2 - If the battery of your digital camera is running out of power, it is most likely that the digital cameras will not work. Ensure if thing improves when a fully charged cell is inserted into the digital camera.

3 - Sometimes, it is necessary to reset the camera through the menu or by removing the battery for 24 hours.

4 - The camera may not turn on if the memory card is full.

These common problems can not be really considered as a serious problem for the digital camera. But a novice user of the gadget may find it difficult them troubleshoot.

Selecting Repairing Service Station:

If the small efforts are not enough to fix your camera, visit an authorized service station in stead of asking any ordinary technician. The technician in the service station should have experience of fixing several brands and models of digital camera.

Moreover, both the user and the technician should have the ability to distinguish between marginal repair and quality repair. A little bit of confusion in this regard may cause damage to your precious digital camera.

Each model of digital cameras requires special tools to fix the errors and reliable service centers have these specialized tools and skilled technicians to properly service and safeguard the digital camera. Efficient diagnosis and repairing of digital camera depends largely upon specialized tests, appropriate equipments and expert technician.

The high-end and sophisticated device like digital camera requires a lot of concern and careful handling which is of paramount importance for longevity of the digital camera. However, the repair process of digital camera also needs the same amount of care and attention. You need to have adequate knowledge of handling digital camera to avoid any kind of trouble.

    Maybe try removing the microphone from the Beachtek, and just listen to the noise from the beachtek . It could be your Sennheiser system that's causing the noise?



    A noise reduction plug-in would be better at removing hiss than a EQ plug-in. Adobe Audition comes with such a plug-in. There are many 3rd party plug-ins that do noise reduction (Sound Soap, Sony NR, Waves Xnoise, etc.).



    Do you hear the hiss while you're recording?

    If so, it's a connector or level issue.

    If the G2 isn't turned up loud enough and you have to increase the sensitivity of your camcorder to get the right level, that makes a lot of noise.

    The concept is called GAIN STAGING. The right output of one device to feed the input of the next device.

    As a guess, you may need to increase the output of the G2 so you can back off the camera input.


    turn up the sensitivity on the transmitter /receiver of the lav, and turn down the audio level on the camera



    The link from lav to xmitter may need adjusting. Make it not so loud that the loudest moment overloads the xmitter.

    The link from the receiver to your camera (or beacktek) may also need adjusting. Make it not so loud that it clips the output of the receiver.

    Check the input control on the beachtek (assuming it has one). Adjust it so the input for the receiver doesn't clip the beachtek.

    Now adjust the input of the camera so the output of the beachtek doesn't overload the camera input.

    All stages must be adjusted properly to get low noise and no clipping. That's called gain staging.

    The problem manifested itself when the camera was taken out of Audio Gain Control (AGC) and placed in manual audio mode. For a time, Sony denied the hiss problem existed, but eventually relented under mounting consumer pressure. The PD150's owners were offered a fix, and all PD150's created after serial #1003300 (approx.) were shipped free of this problem. Unfortunately Sony considers the VX2000 a 'consumer' model camera and therefore refused to fix the audio hiss problem on this model

Digital camera noise is analogous to the audio hiss you hear in analog
tape recordings. It comes from the image sensor, which is also analog.
Generally, the smaller the size of the pixels the lower their signal/noise
ratio and higher megapixel cameras will have smaller pixels for a given
image sensor size. That is why you do not want to buy a digital camera
with more megapixels than you actually need.

Try resetting your camera first. Turn it off. Remove battery for about 10 mins. Then check if it fixes it. Otherwise, you can try to update the firmware of your camera.

    It says on the FAQ that the hissing noise is not a malfunction. So I guess that is a normal behavior. I suggest you to contact Panasonic for any other related suggestions about the noise.

No lmages on display


Can you come into the menus? Just to check you did not change anything? Sometimes the monitor or display stays black in record mode, because the camera was put in power save mode. In the manual you can find hoe to switch it on again. Has to do, with what you want to see during record mode. Just the image, image with info, sometimes with a grid and then display off.
