Fixing Elephone ELE Explorer action camera no sound issue

By  Zim Watson 2017-04-17 2450 3

No sound comes out from the Elephone ELE Explorer 4K action camera's recorded videos? It's an easy to solve problem. Follow the guide to make it.

You recorded some fantastic sports videos, but when you play back them, you are upset to find that all the videos are silent. No sound comes out! What's wrong? Let's check and solve it.


Check sound settings

Check whether you have turned on the "Recording Sound" feature on the action camera. Press the Power / Mode button to enter its Settings interface. Then press OK button to enter the Video's settings. Press the Down button to move the selection bar to "Recording Sound" option and tick it.

If the settings have no problem, check whether you have turned on your phone / camera's volume when watching the recorded videos. Simply raise up the volume. Maybe your phone is in the Silent / Meeting mode, which doesn't allow the media volume coming out. So please change the mode to the Ring mode.


Format your SD card

Maybe the SD card has something wrong. Simply format the card and then have a try again.

Press the Down button to move the selection to the "Format" option and press OK button to format the SD card (if you have saved some important videos or images on the SD card, you can copy it to your PC first to prevent it being deleted by the formatting).


Reset the action camera

If the formatting makes no sense as well, try to reset the action camera.
