I have a Sony HDR-SR7E and I'm having an issue with the audio input.
When I plug in a mic (or any audio input), the sound is aweful or there is an unbearable buzzing noise. Sometimes the camcorder acts as if nothing was plugged in, and continues to use its built-in 5.1 microphone.
I have a recording to make on Monday and don't know what to do, short of buying an external recorder for the audio. Any advice on what is going on?
