I have a cannon T3I and its not recording any audio when im recording a video. I take out the SD card and put it the computer and there is still NO SOUND. But when i go it setting it shows me that the mic is active when i make a sound the light will show tje range of sounds. What im i to do inorder to correct this?
With camera in video mode, check the video menus. The camera allows for external microphone to be used. Seeing how you do not seem to be using an external microphone, if your camera is looking for an external microphone and not finding one, that could explain why it records video without any audio. Of course, the problem could be something else entirely different, but looking for an external microphone when one is not available is just one possibility.
It sounds like the the "Sound recording" menu options may be turned off. If this is the case, your camera won't record sound.
To check for this, switch your camera's MODE Dial to "Movie", then press the MENU button. Choose Movie #2 (movie camera icon with 2 dots) tab, then scroll down to "Sound recording".
If menu option is set to "Disable" or "Manual", I recommend pressing the SET button. On the next screen, choose "Auto". If you choose the "Manual" setting, please ensure that it's adjusted high enough to record the audio in your movies. This process is more completely described and illustrated, beginning on page 160 of the EOS Rebel T3i Instruction Manual.
