No the software doesnt block the speaker signal. you will need to go into your sound applet on control panel and designate which ports the speakers are plugged into and which the headset is plugged into. very easy set up and at least in windows xp it even prompts you if your plugged into the wrong port it will tell you the right one to change them to.

Lg tone keeps losing connection


Bluetooth wireless signal can be blocked by your body and even by your head. Try orienting yourself so that the audio source is directly in line with the bluetooth antenna in the headset.

Skype not working


Sir,

On a PC with external speakers and also a headset with microphone. Windows XP is configured so that standard audio are external speakers and standard microphone is the headset. Skype is configured to use the headset for audio in and out.

This way one can listen to sound from the PC and from MP3 players through external speakers and if there is a call to make or take, this is going through the headset.

But now there is the problem that the noise level for the headset is too low. Increasing volume has no effect on the headset, it only affects the external speaker's volume.

Now the solution: Going to the control panel and opening the sound setting, go to the audio tab. The external speakers are selected as default. Just temporarily select the headset and then click on volume just below. You can now set the volume for the headset, click OK and click cancel (!!!) on the sound control dialog box. This way the external speakers remain as default output.



Skype-->Tools -> Options -->Sound Devices-->audio device/USB/etc Audio Device (do NOT use windows default device)
You can also tick the ring pc speaker check box as this is a good backup to alert you even
if the main speakers are off or turned down.

Windows:
Start-->Control panel-->Sound and Audio devices
On the audio tab set the default playback device to your main soundcard(AC97/Audio-chip/add-on-adapter), etc.
Your installed audio device must be present there.
If not, reinstall audio device


thanks
good luck

Disconnect the microphone from the headset and connect another microphone to eliminate the possibility that it's bad. If the other microphone has the same symptom, then adjust the the sensitivity of the mic through the sound card properties. Or, try another sound card - it may be bad.

My headset microphone isnt working? i record a test message and do not hear the playback sound. should there be software on my computer to correspond to the headset?


There should be basic Operating System sound controls or proprietary software if you have a sound card. They would control mic, headphone and speaker settings among other things. It varies with the O/S. On Windows, start looking in Control Panel.

There are two pins. One for MIc and other for the headphones.

you can use headphone for hearing when you don want the audio stream to be on speakers., TO use so, you have to take of the output from the CPU to the headphone pin after removing the speaker pin or configuring the audio controls control panel-> sound effect manager to have sound always in both theh speakers and headphones.

This requires you to have an appropriate configuration so that all 3 pins are aptly placed fot output from the CPU.
Hope you got what you asked for!

No sound from my Logitech headset when on SKYPE


Maybe you need to select which Audio device you are using within Skype. It the Settings under Audio you should be able to select the default audio device that Skype talks to. If you set it to the USB headset, it might work properly.

Mic is not functionning with my Sony notebook VGN-TXN17p


You probably ended up setting it up as a headset on the PDA, and Headphones on the laptop. A disadvantage of this device is that it can only be paired with 2 devices at a time: A Phone that uses the mic AND the speakers, and an MP3 player or computer that uses Stereo Audio. To use the mic on the laptop, make sure you are using the Headset profile, and not the High Quality Audio profile. In other words, make sure it's a "Hands free audio", and not a "Stereo Audio". Repair the device to change its services.
