Normal 0 Two things can cause static.
First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have and have added an external microphone between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud

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.

Static when using lifecam - vx-6000


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

Skype crashes whenever i try to text and often when on vid chat... OS X10.5.3 Intel Pro tower DP 2.6ghz 8 gig ram  airport extreme  iChat is fine


Normal 0 After you install Skype and have it operational with your ID. Go to "TOOLS", click on "OPTIONS," Then go to "Audio Settings" and click on it. Make sure both the Microphone and Speaker's are correctly chosen. Then "make a free test call." Wait till the voice tells you to record. Then when finished talking wait for the test persons voice to insure your audio transmission is working. Then go back to options and test your video settings. Click on Video Settings and proceed to set up you video camera. Also, you can visit this site for additional information to setup video.
