You have to unmute it using this procedure.
start -> All programs -> accessories -> Entertainement -> Sound recorder.

Go to Audio properties from the edit in the menu bar.
In the sound recording tab click on volume.
In that select micro phone and increse the volume.
This might fix your problem.

I have no microphone when skyping


When you move your cursor to the lower part of the skype (picture) screen/frame, you'll see icons showing up ... "camera", "microphone" "plus sign" & (red) phone handle.

If you see a slash across the "microphone" icon, it means you're on mute. Just move your cursor to that icon and click on it to toggle it (out of mute)

I have uploaded the most recent Skype version and now cannot use my Skype connection. I am able to see and hear my contact but they have no vision or sound from me


On the new skype the mute and video buttons are moved around. Just make sure that you are not accidentally muting yourself and check whether the video button turns you camera on and off.

If neither of these are the problem, go into the skype preferences and click the Audio/Video tab and check that your audio and video adapters are correct in the drop down menus.

My mike is not working & attempts to un mute it are not working. harry hhrichards@telus.net


Hi,

If you working on Windows VIsta and you Messenger is Messenger 9.
It might have an issue with voice. Try installing ..TSP Codec (Use Google Search). Once installed you will be able to use your mic with Yahoo.
If not you might have to change your mic. Does it work on your computer?
Thanks

I have a Satellite M35X-S114 that has a mic problem. I was using Skype with no problem and then it just stopped working. I hear through the speakers and headset but no mic. I also tried a new headset with...


Sometimes programs like Skype will lose the Mic settings and chose another input channel. Check your operating system's audio settings under something similar to "Recording" and see if microphone is checkboxed and turned up. Also, make sure it is not muted on Skype and/or the operating system.

If you have Windows XP, for example, look for the audio settings icon (little speaker) just left of clock area. Open and go to "options". Choose "properties" then "Recording". Look that your microphone is "Selected" with a checkbox and is turned up. To hear yourself during this, you will need to go back and choose "Playback" instead of "Recording" and de-select "mute" (if checked) for microphone and turn it up to see if you hear yourself talking over the speakers/headphones.

Also, check the Skype settings for microphone and that Skype has the correct sound device selected for input - being your microphone and not another device.

Also make sure that there is not a manual, physical volume adjustment for the microphone on the laptop case itself. Could even be a mute button.

Logitek Webcam mic shows mute and will not click off


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.
