No sound


Webcam Audio Getting sound to broadcast with streaming video using a webcam requires a few components to work in unison. Because most webcams do not have a microphone built in, you will need to buy a microphone for your computer or locate your microphone input if you have one built in (some laptops have these). The audio and video are two separate functions and must be diagnosed as such. b> Webcam Software b> If you have a webcam set up correctly and you are streaming video, then you are already halfway there. This details only how to make the sound work, so please refer to an article related to webcam video if you do not have that working already. The webcam audio and video both communicate with your computer via your webcam's software application. Due to this, you will find that there are settings specific to your webcam software for sound. Because there are various software applications that can act as an interface for your webcam, you will want to do a product-specific search on the Internet for your application's settings. Most often you will find the settings for sounds under Tools or Settings, then choosing Options or Preferences. Regardless of the application that you are using to broadcast your webcam video, you will need to ensure that your microphone is plugged into the "Microphone In" jack on your computer or laptop. The microphone input jack is commonly colored pink. b> Microphone Connection b> With your microphone plugged into the "Microphone In" audio jack, test the audio inside your webcam's software application. Most webcam applications allow you test your microphone by reading a sentence and watching a graph move as you speak. If you see this happening, then you have correctly hooked up your microphone. If you have a Windows PC you should also see if your computer recognizes your microphone by clicking on "Start" > "Settings" > "Control Panel" > "Sounds and Audio Devices." Under the "Audio" tab you will find a section for "Sound Recording." From there you can select or change your "Default Device." b> Hardware Troubleshooting b> In the event that your microphone is not recognized by your computer, continue hardware troubleshooting by contacting your computer's support staff. With a properly connected microphone and some minor adjustments in your webcam's software application, you should be broadcasting audio with your video in no time. Hope this helps.

My friend can hear me but I can't hear them


It's either he doesn't have a working microphone in the webcam, or, if he does, he needs to select the input device in the audio settings of the communication program you are using.

My webcam doesn't work to my skype, what's the problem?


To test if the A4Tech WEBcam is functioning, check the USB cable; make sure itis connected properly. Then check the Skype configuration. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop offand the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - VideoSettings and select the A4Tech WEBcam Also check the AudioSettings for the Microphone THEN click on Save.Avoidconnecting the WEBcam to an USB hub.

I just have the camera piece shown in the picture. Does that mean I would only be able to see someone and not communicate with them? Is the other piece a microphone?


No, I am really sorry. The Intel Home PC Camera CS331 Webcam are not sold with microphones. You may purchase an additional microphone to use in addition to your webcam; however, unfortunately, this particular product is sold without a microphone.

After installing my webcam, my microphone is not working on my laptop. I tried it on another machine and it worked fine. Is there a setting we are missing?


Yes, it is because GearHead WC330I WebCam has built-in microphone and apparently you also installed it's microphone.

What you can do now is to select which microphone to use and disable the other one.

Got to "Control Panel" Select "Sound" icon. From the "Sound Window" select "Recording" tab and disable one of your microphone which you don not want to use.

Hope this helps you. Thank you for using Fixya.
