Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera

1 Answer

Screeching noise My camera picks up the audio as well as can be expected. However, along with the audio is a screeching noise that I can't seem to get rid of. I've moved the camera around and turned off all my computer equipment except the computer and the screen. Yet it persists. Any advice on how to get rid of it?

Logitech speaker feedback


Feedback is a sharp, loud noise that can come through the earphones of a headset unexpectedly---it occurs when the headset is getting sound (feed) from someone else speaking or playing music into a microphone. This sound can create a dangerous situation for someone who is operating expensive equipment or flying a plane at the time since it can disable hearing temporarily.
If you experience feedback often, it could also lead to serious hearing problems.

Mic Too Close to the Speaker or Volume Too High
The main cause of a feedback sound in a headset is proximity to a speaker. If a person holding a microphone on the other end gets too close to a speaker, it creates a loop of re-amplified sound that results in the loud, screeching noise. When the volume on the other party's microphone is too high, it is more vulnerable to picking up unwanted noise and feedback from speakers and sound output devices in the room. So make sure that you ask the other party to turn down the microphone to a normal level and stay far from speakers. b> Two Microphones Gathering Same Sound b> When the other party places two microphones too close to each other, it could cause feedback. When positioned toward the sound source (such as a person speaking) the microphones will both pick up the same audio and compete with each other when creating the output of sound, causing a sharp noise in your headset. This problem, called acoustic phase interference, is resolved by simply ensuring that the other party uses one microphone at a time. Poor-Quality Headset or Microphone b> One common cause of feedback is simply a poor-quality headset or microphone. Most modern headsets and microphones have noise-canceling features that manage and kill feedback before it has a chance to occur. These noise-canceling headsets are essential for pilots and aviation crew members. If you hear sudden feedback that is strong enough to hurt your ears, the headset or microphone is simply not properly equipped to actively cancel that unwanted noise before it hits your ears. Buy a higher-quality noise-canceling headset to manage the feedback noise when you're going about your tasks. Hope this helps.

Screeching sound only when trying to record using LiveCam! and my


Sounds like you have another microphone connect at the same time as your camera mike and it is causing the feed back.
Or the second thing that could cause the feed back is that you have your speaker volume turned up to high.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

  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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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.
C. Windows Live Messenger:
  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
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

Problem with the audio


could be ambient/background noise being picked up by in-camera microphone - switch over to boom mic w/ noise canceling and see if it clears up. Make sure you change settings in Windows Audio Properties.
