very low or no audio through built-in mic

I have been using a Sony DCR-TRV900 camcorder for a number of years now. It has been a very reliable camera. Lately though I have been having a problem with the audio from the built-in mic. The audio recorded is barely audieable. I have tried a number of things including making sure that there is no accidental change in the setup, reseting the factory defaults and even using a new tape. Nothing worked. I am just wondering if anyone had the same problem, and found a solution, before I send it out to sony to be serviced? I am afraid it may turn out to be expensive.

thanks,

Abebe Alimuz

Somebody else with the same problem - good!!! - Maybe bad.

I brought a Sony TRV 900 used about a year ago from a reputable dealer over here in the UK (came with a years warranty). The really annoying thing is, that I was filming a friends christening with it, because I was in a rush I did not take any headphones, so just put everything in auto and hoped it all worked. I took it home, loaded the stuff into my PC and I found that there was no audio, or very little. I was a little lucky in the fact that I was shooting with 2 cameras, and so I am able to lip sync with the other camera.

I have found out that you can plug an external mic and you get sound. I will hopefully be sending it in for a repair soon.

Glad to see somebody else with the same problem.

Let us know how you get on,

Ed Smith

PS I think this needs to be moved to the sony forum.

Man I hate people who post twice.

As long as this is your first time Abebe, I'll forgive you.
