  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.

I just bought a new logitech C250 and i just did a test video chat through gmail and i could hear the sound from the other end but they could not hear me. vid is working fine


First, do have pink and green leads plugged in to the pink and green designated contacts? If so, go to installation where it lets you check the working of sound and voice recording. Make sure the mic is connected to pink (select it on the screen). Do a test. If the test does not record your voice, you don't have the right mic selected. I had this problem and didn't notice that Realtec was selected. IUse the drop down menus to select the right connection for your mic and earphones. If the drop down menu does not drop down, I'd uninstall all and start over. That's what I had to do. This is difficult to describe without being able to show you these screens.

When making video calls on Windows Live w/ Lifecam NX-6000, I hear lots of static from the other caller, but they can hear me just fine. If perchance I get good sound from them, then after about 2-3 mins...


Normal 0 If the people you are talking to have speakers they hear you and you will get feed back of your voice. Have them turn down the speaker level or better yet use a headset and this will no longer be a problem.

Sound problems


Hi mack79, I would assume that you are using Yahoo Messenger on a Windows machine. By "I've done the mic set-up ...works fine there", again I would assume that you have tried the YM Call Setup Assistant and you have a green light on that. By "...connected ...doesn't...pick... voices.", perhaps you simply have to activate handsfree. If my basis for assumptions are off, pls post back with details: 1. laptop or desktop; 2. are you using an external keyboard with Audio in/out; 3. is the Logitech built-in mic the only mic attached to your PC; and 4. are you using headset or external speakers? Good luck and kind regards.

Try the following: Go to the Control Panel (in classic mode). Open Sound devices. Change tab to Voice / Microphone. Press Test Software. Wait a couple of seconds. A small guide begins now. The problem is that the Microphone volume is set to high. Try to adjust these settings and see where it gets you. Usually does it for me. Also, try to not have the mic near the speakers. (I translated the steps from my swedish version of XP, look for similiarities.)
