How do I unmute my skype?

When I hit the speaker with the line through it, nothing happens. I can hear on my end, but whoever I am talking to can't hear me. I know I am muted, because it says I am, but I can't figure out how to unmute.

I beleivee that you do not have the Skype Audio Setting set properly. I will give you instructions as to how to set up Skype and then it should work for you.
Normal 0

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 is some help to you. Bud

When I syne onto skype people can see me but cannot hear me

*lights cigarette*

First Make sure that both you and the person you are calling are using the latest version of Skype.

If your contact cannot hear you, it can be either on your side or theirs.

Please confirm that you have done the following:

If you go in the Tool menu, then Options, you will get a section called Audio settings.

There you can chose the right Input device, in your case you want the microphone of your webcam, and once it is selected try talking and you should see a "green line" showing as you speak confirming that the device is properly recording.

If the green line is short, you might want to boost the volume by moving the blue dot to the right. You can also uncheck the "adjust my volume automatically" since it can put your volume very low every time a loud noise is caught by the microphone.

If the camera microphone is not listed, installing your webcam software again should make it available after a reboot.

After That, try making a test call (Echo/Sound Test Service). If you can record your own voice and hear it played back to you, then the problem may lie with the person you are calling. If so, ask them to follow these instructions.

Hope This Information is Helpful.

It doest record anything and also i cant talk on skype i could hear whoever i am talking to but they cant hear me

First test your microphone to see if it is working properly. Click on Start All Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound recorder and record your voice and play it back.
If it does not work, then reinstall the microphone driver and test again. When the microphone works then open Skype and configure the Audio settings.
For details on configuring the microphone in Skype, click on this link and follow my instructions :-

My philips voip8411 no one can hear me

I could hear the ring tone on mine, but couldn't hear the voice once they answered. Took the batteries out and disconnected the base for over 10 minutes, after I plugged it back in it was back to normal.
