I just bought an Akaso Brave 7 LE action cam for my upcoming trip. After testing it out last weekend, I was very disappointed that only one of the recorded video has sound. So I proceeded to return it via Amazon Prime and gotten a replacement today. But the problem persisted. So I played around with it and I think I found a software bug in the Akaso Brave 7 LE.
I have a tendency to use my cameras silently. So as soon as I got it, I configured "Shutter", "Boot-up", and "Beep" sounds to be off. I found that when you do so, whenever the action cam is turned back up, it will not record audio with the video.
I also tried to leave all the sound settings to "on", but change the "Volume" setting to "0". But this also causes the no audio recording bug.
I think I found a few work-around for this Akaso Brave 7 LE no audio bug:
1) Leave all the sounds on all the time. The action cam seems to behave properly when you don't change the sound settings.
2) I think it's the "Boot-up" sound setting that causes this bug. So far, if I turn the other sounds off, but keep the "Boot-up" sounds on, then the action cam will still work fine with audio recording.
3) Every time you turn on the Akaso Brave 7 LE action cam, flip all the audio settings to "on" and then "off" again. This work-around is very tedious and you might forgot to do it, causing all videos to be recorded without audio.
I would love to hear any other possible work-arounds; please leave a comment.

You solved my problem! I had the exact same issue. No sound, went through customer service and the warranty issue (Akaso wasn't very helpful - they wanted me to buy an external microphone before finally giving in and letting me send back my unit for an exchange). New unit did exact same thing. I searched and searched for an answer to the problem, including buying multiple different memory cards. Finally found your post and turns out I always silence all of the menu options just like you did. Turned the sound back on for bootup and the problem is solved! I've been recording a cabin build and since my last camera died I've been recording with no sound for about 4-5 months now. It's been so very frustrating. Thank you!!!
