Akaso Brave 7 LE Doesn't Record Sound
Tue, 04 Oct 2022 21:37:01 +0000

I just bought an Akaso Brave 7 LE action cam for my upcoming trip. After testing it out last weekend, I was very disappointed that only one of the recorded video has sound. So I proceeded to return it via Amazon Prime and gotten a replacement today. But the problem persisted. So I played around with it and I think I found a software bug in the Akaso Brave 7 LE.

I have a tendency to use my cameras silently. So as soon as I got it, I configured "Shutter", "Boot-up", and "Beep" sounds to be off. I found that when you do so, whenever the action cam is turned back up, it will not record audio with the video.

I also tried to leave all the sound settings to "on", but change the "Volume" setting to "0". But this also causes the no audio recording bug.

I think I found a few work-around for this Akaso Brave 7 LE no audio bug:

1) Leave all the sounds on all the time. The action cam seems to behave properly when you don't change the sound settings.

2) I think it's the "Boot-up" sound setting that causes this bug. So far, if I turn the other sounds off, but keep the "Boot-up" sounds on, then the action cam will still work fine with audio recording.

3) Every time you turn on the Akaso Brave 7 LE action cam, flip all the audio settings to "on" and then "off" again. This work-around is very tedious and you might forgot to do it, causing all videos to be recorded without audio.

I would love to hear any other possible work-arounds; please leave a comment.

modifying the MASD-1?
Mon, 22 Aug 2022 17:01:58 +0000

It doesn't work, it doesn't even plug into the camera and the memory card reader, I feel like a waste of money buying it. At least I can buy a 2gb XD card for a pretty cheap price, maybe the seller doesn't know its value

Wow! While reading the comments, I thought this wouldn't work, but it did! At first I smacked the bottom of the tape 10 times and still got the error. I did it again but this time, I smacked on all sides repeatedly, and yeah, it works! By the way my camcorder is a Sony DCR-TRV250 to put it on note.

I have this same issue with my Sony Handicap 4k and one thing that worked to get the camera to focus was to turn it off, detach the battery for a few seconds, put the battery back on, place the camera on a flat surface like a table and then try turning it on. When I tried to do all the above but turn it on in my hand where the lens could wiggle around, it didn't seem to work. But, having it stable on the table or a tripod worked a few times so far.

Choppy Playback - Sony DCR-TRV120
Mon, 28 Mar 2022 20:20:32 +0000

Not something I would have every thought would work! The camera had sat for several years and when I tried to play a tape, it was choppy. Tried this, against my better judgement I might add, and it worked!

I can't believe it. I just can't. It actually worked. I smacked it lightly about 20 times holding it upside down and hitting the bottom. The cassette started spinning and now it plays! Like something was stuck and now is free. Thank you!

c31:30 error code
Fri, 22 Oct 2021 00:18:08 +0000

It's 2021, I have a cranky Sony here that would close on the tape then refuse to feed it in, giving the same error ocde. It would eventually release the tape again though, so thought this is not going to work. Closed the tape door, powered it off and gave it a not very hard slap on all sides... and bloody hell it works now. Stupid, yet amazing. Thanks for this weird but useful trick.

Possum Sees My Night Vision Bullet Lens?
Tue, 19 Oct 2021 10:32:06 +0000

Possums can definitely see the IR lights and mostly dodge them. So the night vision cameras turn out to be a good deterrent to possums. To make the deterrence more effective, you need to change the camera positions from time to time to keep the possums guessing all the time.
