I have gone thru all of Skype's instructions. Clicked Properties, selected lLevels, but no microphone level. Went into sound card check and it says Logitech Mic is working...I looked at the back of the Tower and nothing pulgged into pink jack (duh???) do I need to unplug my camera and pull that cable jack into the pink jack? Or does it have to do with the Cam?

If you notice the speaker icon in your systray... that space with all the icon's on the lower right of your screen you will see a speaker... open that and look for a mic setting... you may have to go into the menu at the top of the window to add the control for the mic... make sure it is not muted.

Lm on skype but people cat hear me


You may need to enable your microphone for recording - see below.



Also check in Skype - tools - options - sounds that you have the correct (WAVE) audio source selected



Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES


Click VOICE


In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if your microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK. Same applies for Internal mic.


That should be it.


To adjust audio volume generally.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.


You might put a check mark in the box to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make adjustments in the future.

Downloaded skype. I can receive and hear the calling party, but they are unable to hear me.


This is the issue regarding the Internal Microphone in the Computer.
Your contacts cannot hear you, until you have enabled the Microphone in the Computer.
You will find the information to enable the Microphone below:
Windows XP:
1) Double-click on the Volume Control. 2) Select the "Properties" option from the "Options" menu. 3) Select the "Recording" option in the "Adjust volume for" section. Click the OK button. Check the box labeled "Select" under the microphone volume and you should now be able to adjust the volume for the microphone.

Windows Vista:

1) Right Click the Volume Icon at the bottom right corner of your screen [The Task bar]. 2) Click [Playback Devices]. 3) Right Click the [Speakers] Icon and click Properties. 4) Click the [Levels] Tab; and there you will see the Microphone Volume slider (The one at the very bottom of the "HD Audio output" and "PC Beep" sliders where you can un-mute the mic playback.


Windows 7:
1) Click on Start (the Windows icon) and type sound. 2) Click on Sound under Control Panel. 3) Click on Recording tab. Select Microphone and click on Properties. 4) Click on Levels tab. The default Microphone Boost is set to 0. Increase it. 5) Close all the dialog boxes, and the microphone will be ready for use.

Hope this helps.

Skype Mute


  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type sndvol32.exe, and then click OK.
  3. Click Properties on the Options menu.
  4. In the Adjust volume for box, click Recording.
  5. Click OK.
  6. In the Microphone box, verify that the Select check box is selected.
All the properties listed on the Playback section of the Volume control are independet of the recording settings. So you could record through the microphone by selecting it on the recording section, and mute it on the playback section. Then, you could record sound, but wouldn't hear it through the speakers while you are recording.

I skpe using my Asus, and my microphone does not work.The other party can't me...how do I solve this please


Hi

Are you sure that this laptop has a build in microphone? or are you using a external microphone?

in either case the most likely problem is that the skype sound settings on the input are wrong.

open skype, tools, options, then the audio settings page.
On the microphone, try all the possible options offered and see if it detects your voice, you can also try calling the skype test number / echo123.


a03a5d9.jpg
When you see the volume bar light up green like this as you speak or tap the microphone its working.

If you are using a external microphone, are you sure you have it on the right slot? Try the other plugs on the laptop and then go over the options again and see if you get sound.

You should also check from volume control that the microphone is not muted.

To check that open up start -> control panel -> sounds -> recording -> select the microphone and click properties -> check the levels tap and make sure its not muted and its turned up to full volume.

also some microphones have a on off switch on the wire, make sure its turned on.

By now you should be able to talk on skype.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks,
Ekse

Skype


Audio Setup for Windows XP and Vista

1. Audio settings, in Windows and Skype

XP: Windows Control Panel / Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices / Sounds & Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Adjust Audio Properties"

Volume / Device Volume: Make sure “Mute” is NOT checked in this window.
Volume / Device Volume / Advanced: If there is no “Microphone” section in this window, go to Options / Properties and check “Microphone” in the “Playback” list. Then make sure “Mute” IS checked in this window

Audio / Sound Playback: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume: Make sure "Microphone" is selected and the volume slider is at the center or higher
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume / Advanced: If “Microphone Boost” or “20db Boost” is present, select it


Vista: Windows Control Panel / Hardware and Sound / Sound / Manage Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Playback devices"

Playback: Your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Playback: Select your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Playback / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Playback / Properties / Levels: “Mute” is not on, volume slider in the middle

Recording: Your Microphone or on board sound/Sound card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Recording: Select your Microphone or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Recording / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Recording / Properties / Custom: If “Microphone Boost” is present, select it.
Recording / Properties / Levels: Microphone volume should be centre or higher
Recording / Properties / Levels: If there is a “Mute” button, it must not be on

Skype / Tools / Options / Audio Settings:

Microphone: Your headset/mic or USB device or Web cam mic, as you prefer
Speakers: Your headset, USB device or speakers, as you prefer
Ringing: VoIPVoice USB Phone or on board sound/Sound Card; also tick Ring PC speaker

Note: The audio devices you want to use MUST be present in these Skype device lists. If they are not, check the device connections and driver installations again.

2. Microphone and Speaker connections

Check if your mic (pink) and speaker (lime) jacks are in the proper sockets (it is easy to reverse them) and fully inserted (they sometimes stick only partially inserted)
If your microphone or headset has a “Mute” switch, make sure it is not on
If your speakers or headset has a volume control, make sure it is turned up
For test only you can use an earphone instead of microphone (really)! Just unplug the microphone, plug the earphone into the microphone jack, and talk into your earphones. (I know it sounds silly, but it might tell you if your microphone is defective)
A standard microphone plugged into Line In will NOT work.

3. Check audio in Windows.

XP: Start / All Programs / Accessories / Entertainment / Sound Recorder

Vista: Start [Orb] / All Programs / Accessories / Sound Recorder

Make a short recording with the microphone; you should see the level meters moving as you speak. On Windows XP, you can then play back what you recorded.

4. Once done, test with Skype Test Call (echo123).
