Canon SL2 / 200D no sound playback



I have a problem with my Canon SL2. I have it for 2 month now and I noticed that the beep when focusing isn't playing 90% of the time. I checked the settings and the beep for focusing and touch screen input is activated. So I recoreded a video with sound and played it back on the camera. No sound is playing. I checked the volume when playing back and turned it up to the maximum volume. Still no sound.

Some times when starting the camera sound is playing but stops soon and I don't know why or how to turn it back on.


Any suggestions ?

Hello eelay,


Welcome to the Canon Forums and thanks for your post!


Based on the description of the issue it sounds like there could be an problem with the speaker of the camera. If you transfer the video you mentioned to a computer, does the sound play fine when watching the video?


As a general troubleshooting step you may want to go ahead a reset the camera to the default settings to see if that makes a difference. Please follow the instructions below.


Settings Reset


1. While the camera is on turn the mode dial to "P" (Program mode), which allows all menu options to become available, then press the menu button.

2. Move across the top of the menu to the last wrench tab. (Yellow tabs)

3. Go down the menu list to "Clear Settings" and press the Set button.

4. Choose "Clear all Camera Settings", and press the Set button.

5. To complete the reset highlight "OK" and press the Set button again.

6. Next, move over to the Custom Functions menu list.

7. Reset the "Clear all Custom Func." settings as well.


Power Reset

1. Make sure the camera is off, and then remove the battery, memory card, and lens.

2. Close the battery/memory card doors.

3. Turn the power switch to the "ON" position, and then press and hold down the shutter button for 10 seconds.

4. Release the shutter button, turn the power switch to the "OFF" position, reinsert the battery, memory card, and attach the lens.

5. Power the camera on.
