Question about Microsoft LifeChat™ LX-3000 Headset

Open Question

Sound cuts out when connected to five9 dialing system.

When connected to the five9.com online dialing system, the sound and microphone cut out frequently for approximately .5 seconds at a time. This also causes a small popping sound at the end of the audio loss. Is there a software upgrade or something that is needed in order to properly use this microphone on this computer. The headset works perfectly on all the other computers that I've used it on.

SOURCE: Microsoft LifeChat Microphone Headset Doesn't Work Properly

You should take your headset to another computer/location and see if your problem still exists.
That way you can eliminate problems with either your computer hardware or your outgoing internet connection (jitter).
I don't think that the CD will be necessary, since it is a USB device, which contains it's own little sound card and doesn't need any drivers.
If the problem persists and it turns out to be a problem with the headset, I would definitely return/exchange it.

SOURCE: Headset isn't recognized by computer and audio doesn't go through headset

With the infamous Vista, try:
Start --> Control panel --> Hardware and sound --> Sound --> Audio devices admin [I have a Spanish OS, I hope it is the same in the English version], then assign as default device the headset.

With Skype and other sw, you have to specifically pick the lx-3000 as the device that will be used as audio device (and the same has to be done to use the mic).

Pretty cumbersome....

SOURCE: I have life chat lx-3000 headset that was working

My guess it's something in the cabling of this device I think it is cheaper to buy a new headset with the same quality. I think that that best solves your problem.

Lexus radio sound crackles then cuts out altogether


in radio mode, A./m and F/m
and what about other modes. Cassette, CDDA disc? all crackle
if only radio, then connect a test antenna to the radio
solved?>
if not the radio is bad, or DC power to the radio is bad.

cuts out, does that mean, just the sound dies in all modes. (left and right speakers)
or the sound and even the dial lights and station tune data is dead too.

cuts means nothing with out specifics.

We have a wirless Microphone using with a xp510i itwas working OK but we think somepne has played with the knobs as I cant get the Mic to working through the speakers any ideas


Process of elimination needed. Plug a corded mic into the wireless channel. Does it also cut in and out? If not then it sounds like the wireless is the one cutting in and out...not unusual for cheap units. Your wireless is not a cheapie? Then check the wireless squelch setting located on the receiver as it may be set too high.

So, if I am understanding you right. As you are talking on the mic you are cutting out as if it is shutting down. If this is the case I would adjust your settings. It sounds like it is clipping from maxing out the input. A protection is cutting you out. Let me know if this is not the case.

I'm useing the SLX1/SLX4 cordless combo with a Crown headworn mic (CM 311/E SH). Sometimes the sound cuts off ! I'm based in NYC. where can I go for repair? Thanks


If the problem is with the Shure wireless, you'll need to send it back to Shure (www.shure.com/service). If the problem is with the Crown headset, you'll need to send that back to Crown.

We have a problem with what sounds like the mic.


There are so many variables with sound systems, sometimes it's hard to isolate the problem. When I have a problem with the sound system at my church I usually try and force the problem again. In my experience it's usually been the cable that will go bad before the microphone. Try moving the cable around at the end where it plugs into the microphone, if you get any crackling or popping it usually means the cable has a short in it somewhere. Another problem I run into pretty often is that the channel on the soundboard is having problems. Try switching channels and see if the problem comes up again.

Plugging in Mic ceases sound playback


The drivers are working, but you apparently have a non asynchronous driver, meaning it either records, or plays, but has trouble doing both.

Gamers usually like their sound a bit beefier than the standard AC97 chip common with mainboards can produce, I would suggest first making absolutely sure your machine is clear of virii, etc,, turn off the windows sounds, because most earlier built-in sound chips cannot multi-client, and if you still have the problem, go for a USB sound box like the M-audio Transit, for around $100, it will give you high definition sound, both in and out, and you won't have to open your PC to install it.

Mind, I am not a shill for M-Audio, but for gamers, you really need the 24bit/96KHz out, to match your game's audio.

You will also find your games may run more smoothly, as the audio role is now in the little box, rather than your CPU.

The digital out can go to your home theater system, the 5.1 really makes it more fun.

5.1 Surround Sound Cutting Out


HI,
Yes you are right man, this problem occurs only with the cable problem, i can explain you, if there is a receiver problem means you won't get the sound its dam sure,
only if there is a cable problem you will get some noise or sound cut off with the speakers, so you please check the cables properly it will be alright.
