You mean "I can hear the other party but they cant hear me"

Skype probably didnt change your microphone.

Go to Skype Tools>Options>General>Audio Settings and on the Microphone dropdown menu, make sure your headset is selected. If it's installed correctly and you talk into it, you should see the volume bar start moving. Click save and start talking!

This is assuming you've already gone into sound proporties in windows and made your headset the default microphone and checked the volume settings on it.

People can only here me faintly at the other end


Hi,

If you bought a webcam, dont assume it has a microphone built in, not all of them do.. if you do have one, then make sure it isnt muted (double clicking the speaker in the system tray next to your clock, and make sure the mic isnt muted, if it isnt and you still have no sound, the microphone header on your motherboard may be connected incorectly or not at all, if you are plugging the microphone into the front of the PC, take it out and use the pink plug at the back (one one labelled with a picture of a microphone).
Check your sound preferences by double clicking the speaker icon in the corner of the monitor first. Make sure it's working there, it's in the Input Tab. Then when you are sure it's working there, go into Skype preferences and change your mic input to the appropriate mic input, and then use the Test Call to check your microphone settings to see if they work, if you hear yourself then others will be able to hear you.

Thank you!

I am getting the voice from other end & my voice is not going


Mic issues can be tricky. Knowing what operating system you are using would help diagnose the issue.

First the simple things. Make sure your mic is plugged into the correct jack. It should be red. Second, you need to open your sound mixer and make sure your mic is not muted or the volume turned all the way down. Either of these will cause you not to be heard.

You can also open the sound settings in your control panel, it is the icon that looks like a speaker if you are using Vista/7. Under the recording tab, make sure you see your mic/headphones/etc (what ever you are using as a mic) in the list. Make sure it has a green check mark on it indicating it is the default device. You can then double click it and select the levels tab to ensure your volume is not all the way down on the mic. You can also click on the listen tab. Place a check in the listen to this device box and click apply. You should now be able to hear your own voice as you speak into the mic over your speakers. It gives you a way to troubleshoot the mic functions. Once you can hear your voice, remove the check and click apply again to return to normal.

Make sure you can hear your voice without Google Talk. It most likely is not the application causing your problem. If, however, your mic works on everything but Google Talk, then we need to do more troubleshooting. Let me know if this resolves your issue.

My new computer has vista installed, i have the latest yahoo messenger and can no longer talk to my friend in america, i can hear her, but she cannot hear me.


Go to your preferences and make sure you complete the audio setup wizard.  If that does not work, on the volume icon on the bottom right side, click advanced.  Make sure the mic is not muted.
