Question about Microsoft LifeChat™ LX-3000 Headset

Pop/Clicking Sound From Headset

Lately when I'm talking to my boyfriend on Skype, my headset has been making a popping and clicking noise before shutting off entirely. He can hear it too before it goes out and when it stops I have to unplug my USB and plug it back in. Is my headset giving out or is there some way I can fix this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Try to isolate the issue. charge your device and use different cable and see if you will still get the same problem. it is also possible that the headset is faulty

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.

Normal 0 Make sure you select the wireless when you do the setup.

Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
Hope this helps. Bud

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.

Skype not working


Sir,

Click this link for more information........

http://support.skype.com/index.php?_a=knowledgebase&_j=questiondetails&_i=35

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

How do I get rid of soft clicking noises in my recordings?


The soft clicking noises could happen for many reasons such as moving your headset around, tapping on any part of the headset or even the wire, but if it's for none of these reasons, then it could be because of a loose wire.

We're had customers call with similar issues. First, make sure your compatibility dial is set properly (located on the side of the base). If set incorrectly, it will make your headset inoperable. If that doesn't fix your issue, try disconnecting and reconnecting the battery and then perform a subscription. Both steps can be found below:

Buzzing noise when I talk


Do you have the Play n Charge Kit connected? It seems if you use that with the X1 at the same time, some kind of hum noise is transmitted through the USB bus power to the X1 headset, and you hear a buzz or high-pitched hum. The solution is to use the X1 without the Play n Charge Kit, and charge the controller when you're playing the sound through your TV instead of the headset.

I can hear the other party but I can't hear them. it says that my mic is mute....how do I undo this?


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.

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.
