I have a HG21 camcorder and im experiencing noise on my recordings emmitting from the red external microphone imput port.
whenever i use the INTERNAL Microphone there is no noise..
but if i attach a 3.5mm plug...be it from a external microphone or from a output of a mixing desk...or in fact....even if i just plug in a 3.5mm cable attached to nothing at the other end i am getting bad HUM noise on my recordings and it is very annoying...
I figure it must be the 3.5mm imput port with a bad connection or a loose wire connection inside
But I guess im here to get some expert opinions..
im sure this problem has surfaced somewhere amongst you guys on video cameras before
Can anyone help and advise on how to fix this issue
