Normal 0 Two things can cause static.
First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphone between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud

My problem is when I'm recording my voice and or just using my webcam I get a loud background noise, I didn't have this problem until maybe a week into having my webcam, can you please help me?


Make sure the webcam mic is set as default - especially if its a laptop which also has a mic.

Plug in the webcam

TEST SPEAKERS
Right click on speaker icon in System Tray or from Control Panel
Select "Playback Devices"
The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible
Right click on the volume graph and click "Test"
Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard

SET DEFAULT & TEST MIC
Click "Recording" tab.
Right click on the volume graph and select 'Show disabled devices' and 'Show disconnected devices'
To set required (webcam) mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties"
In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click 'OK'
Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later)
Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays

Restart computer

Your mic may also be picking up sound from your own speakers. To overcome this problem use a set of headphones.

Mic problems


Go into the Control Panel and select Sound and Audio Devices.
Choose the tab Audio and then select under Sound Recording the Volume Button.
UNcheck any devices other than Microphone (checked). Also, put your microphone level midway.
See if that helps.
