Re: microphone not working
Right click on Systray Speaker icon. "Open Volume control" Do you see Microphone column? Be sure is NOT muted. If you do NOT see it: Option / Properties check if sound device is the correct one (if you have multiple), Set Playback and mark the control to show (including Mike) You can now see and tune your Micro volume.
Same process for recording devices: set Recording etc..

Look at the box labelled SOUND RECORDING - if the DEFAULT DEVICE is listed as WAVE DEVICE (may have some letters and or numbers in front of the words WAVE DEVICE - they are only the name of the device) go to step 6 otherwise click the little downward arrow at the right hand end of the DEFAULT DEVICE box. Scroll down the pop-up list to WAVE DEVICE and click on it.
click VOLUME in the SOUND RECORDING box
A window will open entitled 'Recording Control'
Put a tick (check-mark) in the little white box under the heading of MICROPHONE and make sure the Volume slider is at the top of the scale.
Close the window to go back to the Sounds and Audio Devices Properties Window.
If you also want to hear what you are saying into the microphone over your own loud-speakers / headphones click on the VOLUME button in the SOUND PLAYBACK box.
A VOLUME CONTROL window will open. If MICROPHONE is in the list of sound sources go to step 11 otherwise click OPTION on the tool-bar at the top right of the VOLUME CONTROL window. Then click PROPERTIES. With a little green dot in the PLAYBACK box look where it says 'Show the following volume controls' - place a check-mark against microphone and then click OK
In the VOLUME CONTROL window remove any check-mark from the MUTE box under the MICROPHONE heading and also make sure that the MUTE ALL box (bottom left) is also un-checked.
Close the VOLUME CONTROL window. Press OK to close the Sounds and Audio Devices window and exit CONTROL PANEL
That should be it but if you are using MSN Messenger / Skype or other similar program you will need to start that program and click on the TOOLS button followed by SOUNDS and TEST AUDIO - follow screen prompts thereafter.
Firstly please check that you have pugged the microphone into the correct (red) socket.
If that is correct the problem is likely to be in the audio settings. You don't specify which operating system you are using. My answer is for Microsoft Windows XP but Vista and Windows7 will be broadly similar.
Click 'start' or go to 'my computer'
click on 'control panel'
click 'sounds and audio devices'
click 'advanced' button in the 'device volume' box. This should open a long window of audio volume controls.
On the tool bar click 'options'
There is a drop down menu with the label 'Mixer Device' - click the down arrow at the right hand end of this menu. If there is more than one device listed select 'wave device' from the list.
Further down the properties window there are 2 options 'Playback' and 'Recording'. Click on 'Playback'and then look at the list of devices in the box labeled 'show the following volume controls'
Make sure that there is a tick (check-mark) against microphone.
Now look at the devices listed in the long window of 'volume controls' make sure that there is NOT a tick (check-mark) in the 'mute' box against microphone and that the volume slider is up at or near the top of the scale.
Make sure that the 'mute all' box (far left) is not checked
click on the 'options' tab on the tool bar once more
Click on 'Recording' and repeat steps 9 to 12
Your microphone should now be working but I assume, from your question. that you are trying to use Voice over Internet Protocol / Skype / Messenger or other chat program. If so you will now need to go into the appropriate program and test the audio properties. Exactly how you do this will vary with each different program but most have a fairly simple test wizard. With Skype the easiest way is to select the test call button.
If you have other (Universal) remotes in your home try programming one of them to operate your Bose.I have a different Bose system for my TV and can operate the on/off and volume from my universal remote. The code I use is 440, I show another code of 302 that may work.
Hello Mithmar hi, try setting the volume for your microphone, (i'm assuming you are using X P) to do this right click the speaker icon (or the mixer icon) on the lower right side of your screen, you will go to the volume controls section, goto options, then properties, select recording. check the microphone, then click apply/ok. On the mixer there is now the microphone slider. Test your microphone by loading the sound recorder program (start, all programs, accessories, entertainment, sound recorder, press the red button) then shout to the microphone, you should see wave patterns on the recorder, your microphone is working fine. at this point let me know your progress.
The person I am speaking with does not hear me (He is deaf). The microphone function does not appear to be working. I have adjusted
the volume and that's not the problem (You must speak as well). I have plugged both jacks (microphone and speaker) into my PC hard drive
and am using my PC to talk on Skype (You cant plug even a single jack in the hard drive). Problem solved!
If you are refering to the internal microphone on your computer then try this. Open up your windows sound recorder from Start - Program - Accesories - Entertainment. Hit the record button and talk or yell something if you would like. You should see recorded sound waves in the middle of your sound recorder. If you do not see the recorded waves this might mean that your microphone is turned off. To turn it on just Double click on the little speaker icon on your taskbar 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 the 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 and try to record again. If this does not work your internal microphone may not be working or your computer may not have come with a built in microphone.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.
