Unplug the camera, remove all the Logitech camera AND Logitech camera drivers via Control Panel/ Remove Applications, then reboot. After re-boot, plug in the camera, Windows will identify it as a USB Camera / Mic and it will work in all applications including Skype. You will not have access to the Logitech menus but the camera and Mic WILL WORK in all your communications needs. After a number of instances where I lost my Mic input, I finally gave up on the Logitech software since they are incapable of finding the Windows Update driver that conflicts with their own driver. Although mine is currently working fine as a Windows recognized "USB Camera Mic", the next Webcam I get will NOT be Logitech. It's a great Webcam but since they are clearly incapable of keeping their software compatible with Windows updates, I'll switch to another make. Hope this helps.

I can hear others but they cannot hear me clearly


Your microphone sounds light it has a loose connection, try the plug first to make sure it is in the socket corectly and its in the right socket, if all ok and still same problem give the cable a wigle neer the mic to see if it makes a difference if it does then there is a loose connection, if you are good with a soldering iron open up the device and resolder the wires leading to the mic, hopfully it will solve the problem. Also a possibilty could be the mic volume in the sound options in the control panel. Look for the recording or mic options and check the settings.

Whichever messging client you are using will have a setup audio and video option where you select and test the mic and cam you want to use. Do you have a mic? Some cams have built in mic some not.

QuickCam mic doesn't work


I read another post that said to go to Logitech itself for up-dates. This I did......downloaded all new drivers, etc. (the disc that comes with the cam must be out of date !). Then when that was done, I went back on Skype and where you do a 'voice test' I was able to this time around to "choose" my webcam - this was not coming up before at all. So in doing that it activated the mic on the webcam and all was OK. We seniors are supposed to be savvy with the forever changing world of electronic devices today! (LOL)

No sound when connected on aim


Is your microphone integrated into your webcam? Make sure the correct device is selected. Go into Edit, Settings, Enhanced IM. Under Audio and Video, make sure the Microphone device selected is a functioning mic, such as Logitech Mic, or if using a headset, select the USB headset (if usb) or your sound card if using a mic plugged into your built in or add-on sound card.
