Go to control panel > speech and audio devices > select audio > select recording > select advanced > Select Microphone (make a tick mark) adjust the volume just above middle level. and close it. OK. Now the problem should be solved ! Note: If your skype supports audio configuration run that . Also remember to use two channel audio if your system supports 6-channel audio onboard.

I call my friend and i cannot hear her while she is talking.


There are two obvious reasons (and a number of not-so obvious ones) for this.
1. Have you got your sound on (and adjusted properly) ? You might have your sound turned down or off on your PC or just within Skype. To test if your sound is working, try making a test call using the Skype test call facility.
2. Your friend's microphone may not be working, they may not have one or its sensitivity in Skype may be turned down or it may be 'muted'. Ask to check that her microphone is not muted. Ask her to make a test call on Skype and adjust her microphone sensitivity so that she can hear herself sensibly.

On my version of Skype the test call has appeared in 'contacts' but now it is accessible from the menu at the top left of the window from the call > audio settings menu/page. You can change your volume, microphone and speaker sensitivity settings on that page. You may have a different version of Skype of course.

Skype microphone does not work


You need to check your audio (sometimes called Sound on some systems) settings (under control panel on Windows or Settings on Mac).

Under input (or sometimes called sound recording), make sure the headset you are using is selected.

You might also try using the headset with another program to see if it will record your voice. (Audacity is free http://audacity.sourceforge.net/. You can download it and try recording on it.)

If it still doesn't work, here is a page on Skype that has a Microsoft tool you can try - https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA897/why-can-t-the-other-person-hear-me

Here is the link for Mac sound troubleshooting on Skype - https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA10885/why-can-t-my-friend-hear-me-on-skype-for-mac-os-x

Other person cannot hear me


Have you checked to see if you microphone is muted? Go on control panel, then Hardware and Sound, then Sound, then manage audio devices. Go on recording, click microphone, then levels and if it is not on high volume drag it so it is, the click ok. If it was muted, then this should have fixed the problem.

Can not hear other person talking but they can hear me.


Their microphone is probably not working. If they can verify their microphone works by using audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/) then the problem will be on your end. Make sure your sound is not muted and that you have the right sound output device selected.

Cannot hear my voice in microphone


These instructions are for Skype 4.2 for Windows or below. Before continuing, we strongly recommend that you upgrade to the latest version. For Skype 5.0 and above, refer to these instructions. If you're not sure which version of Skype you're using, it's easy to find out.
If the person you are talking to in a Skype-to-Skype call cannot hear you there are a number of steps you can take in order to help you set up your system correctly so that others can hear you.

Try calling Echo123. If you can hear your own recorded voice then your playback device (headphones, speakers, etc) and microphone are set up correctly and the problem might stem from low internet bandwidth, or that the person you are calling has not set up their sound devices properly.
If you cannot hear your own voice in Echo123 check that your microphone is on.

Test Echo123 again to see if the microphone now works..


THANKS.
If none of these steps work you might need to adjust your computers sound setup. Have a look at our Sounds Setup Guide.

Also check out our Troubleshooter for more help with common sound setup issues.

Dear Sirs, i use windows vista and own this laptop but my microphone is not working on skype. i can see the video and hear the other person voice but the other person cannot hear my voice while he can see...


Hi. Try to check the settings of your skype account especially for the microphone. You may try using other microphones also just to check if the port is working or the mic that you are currently using is working also.

I can hear sound on Skype, but I am not being heard.


See section A. Skype in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
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.

A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype

http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/

set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML

set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on "Open the call setup assistant" and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

http://download.live.com/Messenger

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.
Hope this helps. Bud

I can hear the other side but they can't hear mee


make sure you have a microphone, if not, you will need one, if you bought a webcam, dont assume it has a microphone built in, not all of them do.. if you do have one, then make sure it isnt muted (double clicking the speaker in the system tray next to your clock, and make sure the mic isnt muted, if it isnt and you still have no sound, the micropgone header on your motherboard may be connected incorectly or not at all, if you are plugging the microphone into the front of the PC, take it our and use the pink plug at the back (one one labelled with a picture of a microphone)

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.
