Audio problem with recording

Hey there!!!

I am new to the forum and my apologies if i am in violation of any forum rules with this post, however i didnt come across any posts on the issue i am facing.

My k-50 is not recording audio properly while recording video. When i play the videos back there is hardly any audio recording of the person i am shooting. The person i was shooting was at a distance of 4-5 feet from the camera. The only time the camera records audio thats audible on play back is when i speak holding the camera literally close to my mouth. I have tried changing the audio levels and the "all custom settings reset" but it doesnt seem to make any difference. I have shoot a short clip at an auto show about 3 weeks ago and that clip is ok with sounds recorded.

For anyone wondering, i havent changed anything on my camera during this time, havent tried any new external equipment or even taken it too any kind of harsh environment. Its literally been sitting in its bag.

Pentax doesnt offer customer support in my country and i doubt that the local repair shops would ruin the weather sealing/resistance.

Looking forward to help.

Regards
Faizan Bashir

The sound level for recording is settable using the 4-way controller. You may be set at a lower level than is needed. Instructions are on page 131 on the English K-50 manual.

Hi Aron,

It doesnt look dirty or blocked as far as i can check with our opening by any means. I might sound dumb but i tried blowing air in it but nothing happened.

ok not to me.....um anything plugged into the 3.5mm jack on the camera? I think that is considered an audio input.....also prior getting into video mode is the camera on single frame drive? where it's not looking for a remote? that's all I got
