Timer hops around on playback and No sound!!!

Hiya! Just wondering if anybody can help me with this problem! Firstly the camera appears to be recording fine but when it is played back on either the lcd or through the tv the timer skips back and forth making the picture jumpy and unclear! Also no sound can be heard whatsoever! Be great if somebody has a suggestion! Many Thanks Hayley!

1) Ask someone to take it for you.

2) Set up the camera on a level surface, position it where you expect you to be. Set up the self timer, press the trigger and quickly hop into the spot your about to take a picture of.

3) Turn the camera around, point the lens at yourself and press, probably need a few goes at this, because you can't see what you're taking a picture of.

I'd go for option 1.

Video was recorded with volume but no sound on playback

Be sure that the camera is able to record with sound. When you mean no sound during playback are you talking about playback thru the camera or playback on computer after you download it. Be sure that your camera has a speaker on it to play sound back or that the volume playback is turned up. Also, to help with your situation a little better when asking for help list the model number and manufacture when ever possible. It will help with lengthy feedbacks.
