SOURCE: No Sound Coming out my Microphone

This same thing happened to me. All I did was plug the mic into my keyboard, turned the mic volume to max, and turned the mic on. Then, I grabbed the part of the mic where the cord goes in, and started turning it. I turned it left and started hearing noise come out of the mic. I kept on doing this, until sound came out of the mic. I did this, and now the mic works again. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: GE PC Microphone with detachable laptop mic - does not work

Go to your default settings menu at the very top of the menu in the all programs. Check in there and make sure that your default recording device is the GE Microphone, if it is not, make that the default.

I can't seem to figure out how to record anything from the the microphone or otherwise. Any suggestion or instructions?


We just got one of these today at a thrift shop. I thought it was supposed to record what you say into the microphone but it doesn't. It records your "compositions". Press "record" then play something on the keyboard. Then hit "Play" and it should play it back for you.

We can't figure out how to get the darn microphone to work. Is it supposed to work or is it just for looks?

How to record audio using microphone input


What is the Make / Model of your Laptop? Depending on this, there may be an internal Microphone built into your computer you could use. If not, I can also show you how to specify windows use the "Microphone" as the input device.

Typically Laptops have 2 input selections "Line Input" and "Mic"

Line input is for use when you want to say.. Hook your ipod up to your laptop.

Microphone is a little different, as the input looks like the same as the other Line Input place, however the Microphone port provides power to whatever is plugged into it, which will cause problems if you plug anything other then a microphone into it.

And vice versa, if you plug a microphone into the "Line In" port, the microphone will not work, because the "Line In" port does not send out power to the microphone. Inside Windows Audio if you click 'Options' then properties, click on the recording tab, after this, make sure all the available check boxes ARE checked. Click OK. Then Find the MicroPhone Slider bar, Make sure it is towards the top, and also the checkbox marked "select" is checked. Then go back to Options - Properties - Click Playback, and ok.

Any other information you could provide will make for a better solution I will follow up on.
