PowerShot G7 X Mark III custom sound settings always reverting to auto

Has anyone else had an issue with the sound settings on the G7x mkiii reverting back to auto after turning the camera off and back on. I’ve set and saved the settings multiple times and it’s frustrating to have to go in and set my mic up every time I turn the camera on. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your input. My mic setup was still plugged in. I took the battery out without powering the camera off and it started working as it should again.

Hello Haledamage,

If you are using an external microphone, once the camera is powered off and the mic disconnected, the settings will revert to using the internal microphone. You can save commonly used shooting modes and configured settings for reuse using the custom shooting mode (C mode). This can be setup in the Tools (yellow wrench) menu #5. You can follow the steps for this starting on page 286 in the user's manual. I have attached a link to the manual HERE for your reference.
