Question about Canon PowerShot SD630 Digital ELPH / IXUS 65 Digital Camera

1 Answer

No sound on video

I have a Canon SD630 and I went to record my first videos, only to find out that there was no sound or very little sound on the video. Even when I download the clip to my laptop you can hardly hear anything. Is there a setting that needs to be corrected?

    After recording many videos with great sound, one day the volume just stopped working. Now I have videos with no sound. Very disappointing.
    Cannon PowerShot SD630.

    Is the microphone broken? Never dropped the camera.

    No sound on voice memo or movie, but the speaker works for camera noises.

    Everything was working fine last week.  When I attempted to record a video today - all I audibly hear is static.

Hi If you keep your finger on the microphone it is possible therefore that there is problem with the sound or enter in a menu, setup and verify that they had given the volume on max power.Whether it is not from that Mean, That factory low.

Ixus 65 movie recording but no sounds

Try this. While in the shooting mode, in the menu under the tools tab there is a mute control that turns all sounds off. Also under volume there is a control for playback volume.

Canon Powershot SD630 video only records a couple seconds

The card you are using is having a hard time keeping up with the video. Have you ever formatted this card before? Suggest trying a format of the card to see if that corrects the problem (NOTE this will also erase the card, so only do this AFTER you've downloaded all the photos/videos to your computer.

Press menu, select the tools menu, then select the item stating the card's capacity and select it. Then follow the on-screen prompts for a low-level format.

If formatting does not correct this, you might want to consider a better/faster card than what you're currently using. Be careful in purchasing though in that I doubt the newer SDHC cards will be compatible with your camera.

This may sound like a dumb question, but are you sure that you had the camera set to the video recording mode? Several of the Canon digital PowerShots will show the movie icon on the LCD screen even when the camera is in image record mode. Why, I don't know. Ensure that you set the camera into movie mode by pressing your Func/Set button to go into the Function Menu and then selecting the movie mode that you want to shoot in. Press the Func/Set button again to get out of the Function Menu and you will not only see a movie camera icon on the LCD screen, but also a set of numbers in the bottom left hand corner representing the recording resolution (e.g. 640 pixels) and the frames per second (e.g. 30).

And just in case you did have the camera set in movie mode, make sure that you don't do what many people have inadvertantly done and mistake the video clip for a .jpg image in the playback screen. Videos will of course have the movie camera icon in the upper corner of the image and are viewed by pressing the Set button twice to begin the playback.

If both of these steps were performed properly then your camera may have a hardware issue. As a last resort, try performing a reset from within the menu just to be on the safe side and see if it makes a difference. If not you may need service. Hope this helps.

Camera gives me Videos too big to unload on Youtube

If you have Windows XP or better, you also have "Windows Movie Maker". Use this program to compress your videos to a usable size. Keep in mind, with compression comes some loss in quality, depending on how much you want to shrink it.

Canon SD 700 IS Movie Sound Issue

This is because of low light and low frame rates in the camera. It records the sound on time but the picture delays. In the camera's video menu, choose a higher frame rate to help this a little. Honestly though, If you want to shoot better video get a video camera.
