I cannot unmute my microphone

I have checked all my settings and they are fine. Skype is telling me my microphone is on mute but it isn't.

Any ideas?

Thanks

    I appear to have the same problem. The microphone is recognised by my Realtech software and by Skype BUT not in the Recording Tab of Sound Devices. In the Volume Mixer it shows but reads 'Name not available'. What's going on?

Go to your default settings menu at the very top of the menu in the all programs. Check in there and make sure that your default recording device is the GE Microphone, if it is not, make that the default.

Solution for Skype 5.0:
In the upper right of the window during a Skype call, there should be an icon of a microphone with a slash through it. When it is highlighted in red, this means that your microphone is muted. Make sure the icon is white to be unmuted (pictures below).

Another problem could be which microphone you have selected in your Preferences. Go to Skype->Preferences... and click on the Audio/Video tab. There should be a drop down menu labeled "Microphone:"; make sure the correct microphone is chosen.

Asus epc 1015pn will the unmute the microphone on skype


Hi,

I'm guessing the issue is that Skype mutes your microphone? It is probably because of the volume settings in Skype. Guessing you have the latest Skype, go to Tools > Options > Audio Settings, and uncheck "Automatically adjust microphone settings".

Camera works but skype tells me the microphone is muted.


Go to Tools | Options | Audio Settings which is how the audio and microphone settings are adjusted in Skype.

Your microphone might be muted in the Windows multimedia sound control panel - if you double-click on the speaker in the Windows taskbar you will get the mixer control panel - select Recording devices if the Microphone is not shown, make sure the MUTE checkbox is clear.

Microphone setup


It's possible that your microphone is muted.

Goto Start > All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control

If you see a slider for Microphone, make sure that it's all the way up, and ensure that "Mute" is not checked at the bottom of the slider.

If you do not see a slider for Microphone, click Options > Properties and in the windows that opens select "Recording" and make sure that there is a check box next to Microphone. You should now be able to adjust the volume of the mic, or unmute it.

You can test to see if your microphone works in Skype, by calling the Skype Test Call contact, you will be asked to record a message and repeat it back. If you hear your voice, so should your loved ones. (If you've deleted the Skype Test Call contact you can re-add it by adding "Echo123" to your contacts.
