Is there supposed to be a special driver for this Labtech microphone? I am running XP and have all the volume controls active but it is not recording.


In addition to the instructions below you may need to make sure you have selected the right sound source (normally WAVE) in your recording program



Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES


Click VOICE


In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if your microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK. Same applies for Internal mic.


That should be it.


To adjust audio volume generally.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.


You might put a check mark in the box to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make adjustments in the future.

New noise


sounds like a ground issue to me. that sounds like either 60 cycle hum, or a loose or broken ground. You can probably do an ohmmeter check, first, with no power, and see if you have continuity. That's not unusual for mikes of the seniority of your equipment.

However - if you cannot get enough volume on the microphone you may need to purchase a pre-amplifier to boost the signal strength before input to the computer.

Cannot set up microphone on my acer aspire one d255


You don't specify what type of microphone you are using.
The following instructions apply to a microphone plugged into the normal mic/line in (red) jak-plug socket on most computers.
If you are using a USB microphone the process might be slightly different because the system has to actually recognise the microphone first. Most are plug and play so will automatically be detected after a few seconds but some do need drivers installing from the mic manufacturers disk

I found this happens with a bad capsule.

On the end of the wire you have the microphone capsule. If I remember correctly, the capsule can be unscrewed from the microphone amplifier case assembly. This part can be ordered from a supplier for Sony professional parts.

I have also had the wire go defective, and need replacement. With most of these models, the complete capsule assembly has to be replaced along with the new wire.

If you are not used to servicing this type of microphone, Sony has service reps that can service and test the microphone for you.
