Question about Jensen JMP12 Consumer Microphone

Jensen mic (JMP12) won't work on my Dell/Vista laptop

I have a small Jensen mic, I think it's the JMP12 (not sure). I know it works, as I tried in on my old Dell laptop that runs Windows XP. I now have the Dell Inspiron 1521 that runs Vista. I've been into the control panel to see that everything is okay there. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance.

    Hello again, Antonio. Thank you for trying to help. I know the microphone works because I've tried it on another PC that was running Windows XP. It is not working on my computer that is running Vista. I want to use the microphone for Skype. Do you know where I might install a driver? And thank you again.

Why is it suddenly way too quiet?

Try a different mic to see if problem follows. If yes then it is a setting. If not then the mic is bad and needs to be sent to mfg or get a new one.

I have Windows Vista laptop with a built-in webcam and microphone. However, when trying to Skype people, they can only see me - not hear me. I've tried all audio settings and still can't figure out the ...

If YOU installed Vista on your computer, chances are that it didn't come with the right drivers for that sound card. I had the same problem.

If the laptop CAME with Vista, then there is probably a short in the mic. Have the computer look at by someone who knows laptops, and you might be able to get it working.

If it still doesn't work, RadoShack sells computer microphones for a decent price.

Hope that helps!

Creates excessive noise with no signal

Could you swap with a different mic so you could be sure if the line/cable are allright or confirm that the mic is defective... Also when repairing a mic, 90% of problems come from the connector welds. Use a small flat glasses screwdriver and have a look at the weld of the xlr connector from the inside...

Cannot get laptop microphone working

Double click on the little speaker icon on the Desktop toolbar at the bottom right of your screen. The volume control window will open. Click on options then properties. Next check the small round recording button. Now make sure he microphone box is checked then click ok. Now a window will open that will show your microphone recording level. Move the slider up about half way and make sure to check the small "Select" box near the bottom of the slider. Open up sound recorder or whatever application you are using and try to record. If this does not work I would get an external microphone plug it into your laptop and try recording again. If the external mic works then I would think that you internal microphone is not working. There are some very cheap external mics on the market that sound very good. If you are doing any serius recording you may want to invest in a USB microphone. The USB mic should come with it's own software and setup should be pretty simple. I hope I have been helpful.

Cannot record

Im having the same probz, got a Hp Pavilion Vista using mobile pre amp usb when i record using a condenser mic XLR nothing is picked up from the channels in Cubase or Nuendo. Im trying to record vocals but the Mic is not picked up and i cannot hear myself in the headphones and it wont transfere to cubase.

It has worked before when i had a desktop, but this only worked with a separate m-audio sound card inside the desktop and i plug in the output jax leads from the desktop (soundcard) to the m-audio usb pre amp

Is this why it is not working for the laptop do i need a Jax connection and where is this audacity

Cyber acoustic mc 1060

For Vista 32 bit. Go to the driver manager. De-instal/delete the driver in the Sound, Video and Game section. In my case it was RealTek High Def Audio ver (Select Delete the driver files.) Reboot. Vista will reinstall a driver. In my case it was Microsoft High Def audio ver 6.0.6000.16386. I had the mic plugged in when I rebooted to load the new driver. The Cyber Acoustics ML-1060 now works fine. Hope this helps.

Does not work on Skype and Messenger

In Vista, right click on the speaker icon in your system tray (usually located at the bottom right of the screen) and select "Recording Devices". Be sure that your microphone is enabled in this list. In Skype and MSN, find the audio hardware setup, and make sure to select your mic-in port into which the mic is plugged.
