My video recording setting is not working. There is no error

Customer Question

My video recording setting is not working. There is no error that comes up on the camera, but it does not record at all. There is no indication that it is recording on the video setting. It worked last week so I don't think the camera has any physical issues but I am wondering if I have to restore all of the settings again? Hope this is clear!

Hi,

What is the speed class (the number in the circle) of the SD cards that you are using?

Was the first card filled to capacity when the camera stopped recording video?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Lexar: 10
Sandisk: 2
Sandisk: 4

No it wasn't but I just reformatted the card and it seems to be working!
Expert:  Russell A. replied 1 year ago.

The Sandisk speed class 2 & 4 cards will perform kind of erratically, and can just stop working mid-video, because a speed class of 6 is optimal for video no this model. The Lexar 10 is really overkill, but if formatted in the camera, it will give the best, ***** ***** operation.
