Question about Logitech (980240-0403) Microphone

1 Answer

Microphone not working. I can hear people, but they can't hear me

I work from home and this is really, really, annoying. This is like the 3rd logistics USB headset I buy, I bought them from walmart, and I keep having the same problem with them after a couple of months.
For some reason, there is a shortage in the wires or something, because I can hear people, but the microphone isn't working.
It starts having lots of static, and then I can manage to fix that, and then one day it will just completely go out.
I'm tired of buying these darn headsets, and I never keep the freakin' receipts to see if I still have warranty on it still.
Anyone else ever have this problem?

The plugs that they come with are substandard for regular removal.
(pluging in and out) the cable has no adequate strain relief causing the thin
cables inside to break. you will notice that it will crackle and temporarily come on
as you move the cable around near the plug end or where it joins the microphone.

Some times when people are engaged in conversation they play with the wire inadvertantly!!

i hope this has solved your problem.

take care.

The microphone of my speaker phone stopped working. I got the phone on Jan. I can hear others but they cannot hear me.

ok as you said you just got the phone in January and the microphone is not working!! All you have to do is take the phone to the place where you bought it and they are going to fix it for you as the phone is still under warranty!! if for any reason the warranty of the phone is void then you have no other choice than taking your phone to a mobile repair center for exchanging the microphone..

hope this helps you out, if it helped you out please like/rate the answer please, it will really help

I am having a little problem with my iphone 3G. I dropped it once, and then i tried making calls, and the person on the other end wouldnt listen to me, i can actually listen to what they say, but they...

The home button unfortuantly will be internally damaged. This will need repairing by Apple or a technician, as it will of snapped internally (alternativey you may repair yourself, and replacements are availalbe on ebay). The fact no one can hear you, may mean that the microphone in the bottom (by the connector) has also been damaged in the drop. This could only be confirmed by taking it to an Apple store to check this for you.
Try using the headset that came with the phone, and see if the person is able to hear you through the microphone on there - that might assist in them being able to hear you, as it is a different mic
Thumbs Up!

I can hear people on my Nokia E71 but they can't hear me! How can this be fixed?

i dont think this is a physical fault. i havnt dropped or spilled water around my e71 but the same thing happens every couple of months, the mic cuts out mid call.
to fix it, scientific method, record some video and literally palmmash the keyboard when its recording. keep playing it back every ten seconds or so and soon the mic starts working again. dunno how, dunno why, its really annoying, but this has sorted it every time so far..

I can hear the person I'm calling, but they can't hear me.

I have a lg vx8300 and am having similar problems. This one is my 3rd replacement phone. The 1st one got wet, but I managed to save it by quickly taking the battery out and allowing it to dry out for a day. Then it worked great. 2 weeks later I dropped it and it worked but, when I talked to someone on the phone, they could hear me, but I couldn't hear them.

Hands-free device worked great with it.

The 1st replacement phone had too many problems to mention. Another customer at Verizon said he had already had 3 replacement phones for the same model and warned me that the replacement phones for that model were defective,

The 2nd replacement phone had microphone issues. I could hear the caller but they could barely hear me.

I now have a 3rd replacement phone and am being told that I can barely be heard on this one as well.

I have also seen other people in Verizon with the LG vx8300 returning replacement phones as well.

The original phone was great. I really liked it. But the replacement phones for it do not have the same quality.

I have resorted to using an old LG phone that is 5 years old. The clarity is still exceptional.

I will not deal with Verizon again to replace the defective phone. I have already spent 10 hours altogether waiting in line.

The way it looks now, I'm not so sure that having insurance to replace a phone is a good deal. I had to pay $50 for 3 defective phones.

My advice is to keep your money, save your old phones when you upgrade. Then if something happens you won't have to go through the time and agony of trying to get a decent phone to replace the one that got damaged.

This was a very timely and frustrating endeavor. In the end, for all it was worth - time and effort - Verizon still came out the winner and I came away with a black eye.

Microphone volume

I'm not 100% sure it's the microphone in your case, since I am experiencing the same problem right now with another microphone. I borrowed a working headset from my friend and it is not working either. My volume is up like yours and I can barely hear myself. I am updating the drivers soon and I'll let you know if that fixes it.

Handset not working

I had this exact problem. My solution was to clean the top of the condensor microphone. Something was spilled onto the phone and ran down into the hole that leads to the microphone. It not only affected the microphone, but made some of the buttons stick as well. The phone is not difficult to disassemble, just try not to touch the electronic components. If you are experienced in electronics, you may know that using a wrist strap( available at electronics supply stores or online) and grounding yourself will help protect the electronics. While you are at it, get some pure isoproply alcohol, and some cotton swabs, making sure that the swab is saturated with the alcohol. Just clean around the interior area of the phone where the condensor microphone is. You will want to even remove the black screen over the microphone to be sure everything is clean!!! Make sure the little hole that leads from the front of the phone to the microphone is clear and clean. I believe you will solve your problem.
