Question about Logitech QuickCam Express Web Camera

1 Answer

Hearing through the PC microphones instead of the headset

We can all hear and see each other just fine. However, I can't find how to change the settings from listening with my Logitech headset to listening through the PC's built-in microphones. We have an old Logitech QuickCam 8.1.3, a very nice Logitech headset and a two year old Dell Inspiron E1705 computer.

Can anyone help us find the setting to change from hearing thru the headset to hearing thru the PC?

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 audio people can not hear my chatting


In your sounds icon in the control panel, check to see what the computer thinks you are using for sound recording. For instance, the microphone should be listed if you are using one. If you have a headset, it should be listed instead of a stand-alone microphone. If you are using a mic, it should be plugged into the pink jack on the sound card (or motherboard).

When I talk no one can hear me but I hear them


If your X3's microphone is working, you should be able to hear yourself in the headset when you talk into it. Plug the chat-controller cable in both the headset and the controller, then talk into the X31 mic. Can you hear yourself in the headset? If yes, then the microphone is OK but you probably need a new chat-controller cable. If not, then the microphone may be broken and you should contact Turtle Beach tech support at support@turtlebeach.com.

Microphone volume


I'm not 100% sure it's the microphone in your case, since I am experiencing the same problem right now with another microphone. I borrowed a working headset from my friend and it is not working either. My volume is up like yours and I can barely hear myself. I am updating the drivers soon and I'll let you know if that fixes it.
