Digital Camera Repair Questions? Ask a Camera Expert.
My camera is about four years old & has never been subjected to any of the things you mention, I first noticed this fault some time back when filming some old steam trains & noticed the speaker icon with a red cross through it. as in my question I tried everything possible to remove this, all to no avail. There must surely be something within the menu to control this, all other functions are completely normal, both photo's & video's, sound only required on the video section obviously. like all such equipment the camera is never subjected to abuse in any shape or form, it is kept clean, dry & indoors or in my car, taken great care of when outdoors. It seems there is no function in the menu to get to the speaker to turn it on or off or increase or decrease the volume, regrettably I have lost the instruction booklet, surely there must or should be. It has never been wet, dirty or otherwise abused & always has good batteries. The speaker icon shows off now with no red cross.. I have made sure it is dry & warm, batteries are new
