Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

The microphone on my vtech phone isn't working properly. I can hear people fine, but they can barely hear me.


Please use an external handsfree headphone set and if the voice is clear then the microphone in the phone is a suspect. Please CLEAN the port of the mic on the panel to remvove any obstruction or dirt accumulation.
If this wont help then the microphone must be replaced.

I can hear people, but they can't hear me - apparently my microphone isn't working (and no, it's not set to 'mute')


Check if the microphone is not muted. The mute button is at the top left of the keypad when a call is being received or made. If the mike is not muted, then try the following steps:
I. Switch on phone with SIM Card.
2. Select Menu.
3. Select Settings.
4. Select Call.
5. Select Hearing Aid.
6. Set Hearing Aid to OFF. And that should solve the problem. If this does not work then the microphone might be damaged and may need to be changed.

People can not hear me but i can hear them


Make sure that the phone isn't muted. There should be a button that looks like a microphone. If it's gray then the phone is muted. If it isn't, try using the camera or something to make sure your phone's microphone isn't broken.

I CAN SEE OTHER PERSON AND THEY CAN SEE ME BUT CANT HEAR ME BUT I CAN HEAR THEM .WHAT HAVE I DONE WRONG


The problem is either the microphone is not connected/faulty or the wrong microphone is selected in the Skype Audio setting.
To check if the microphone is working - go to Start - All Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder and do a test recording.
If the sound is doesn't work then open Device Manager - Sound, video and game controllers and check the microphone is enabled and working. If it isn't listed or has a yellow ? against the microphone then you need to install the microphone device driver.
If the microphone is working then open Skype then click on Tools tab -then Options - Audio Settings - then in microphone setting and click on the microphone list to select your model microphone. Then Save your settings.
To test your microphone settings then go to Contact list and select Echo / Sound Test.Service and follow the instructions. If this works then your friends will be able to hear you,

Microphone setup


are you sure that you microphone is working properly?

if yes then there must maybe some problems with your microphone port in your pc..

but try this though :

in the volume control menu ensure that the microphone is not set to mute

what else u can try is u can try the mic with the other port and still if it doesnt work,the other person is still not able to hear then try and do the voice chat with some one else and if the other person on the different chat will be able to hear u then definately the prob is with the other person's computer it is not with ur computer.

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.
