You should try a Factory data reset first. Backup all your files and pictures. make sure you have over %50 battery before doing a factory reset. If your phone still does not work correctly then your microphone is either bad, unplugged, or the phone itself is damaged. You can replace the microphone yourself with parts from ebay. Or have a repair shop do it for you. If you have insurance on the phone I suggest this method over any other. Good luck.

Home made electric megaphone


Making a regular home made megaphone using poster board or cardstock is easy and anyone can do it, but you can easily take it up a notch and make an electric megaphone.

All you need is a poster board / cardboard, scissors, tape, a battery-powered speaker and a microphone with a chord.

Start by making a regular megaphone. Roll the cardboard into a cone and take the sides together. You want to make the cone as big as possible, the overlap should be as small as possible. Trim the edges of your cone so that they are all smooth and round.

To make your megaphone an electric megaphone connect a small speaker to the small end where you would normally put your mouth. The best speakers to use are bettery powered ones like the kind you would use to connect to your ipod. Using a very strong tape to connect the speaker to the megaphone making sure that the on / off switch is on the outside of the cone and accessible.

Plug the microphone into the speakers and attach it to the bottom of the speaker. When you switch the speaker on and talk into the microphone you voice will be amplified by the cone and your megaphone is ready to go!

You only have to connect the microphone to the bottom of the speaker if you want to have a one-handed set up.

On my i mac i can talk on skype thru my headphones but it wont let me talk without them, so was wondering what went wrong?It was working before..


holding option while clicking on the volume icon (speaker) will bring up a small menu, make sure the 'input device' is the internal microphone.
if that doesn't work go to System Preferences -> Sound -> Input and select Internal microphone, it might need to be turned up. From that screen it can be tested to make sure it's functioning and picking up sound

Hi. i am a regular user of google talk..but since one week i cant talk properly thru google talk.i caould hear from the other end..but they can hear only my broken voice.my head phones work fine with...


Make sure the volume for your microphone is turned on. Here's how:
  1. Click the 'Start' menu in your taskbar, and highlight 'Settings.'
  2. Select 'Control Panel.'
  3. Locate 'Sounds and Audio Devices' in the Control Panel, and double-click the icon.
  4. Open the 'Volume' tab, and click 'Advanced...' in the 'Device volume' section.
  5. Look for 'Microphone' in the 'Volume Control' box that opens, and make sure your microphone is enabled and the volume is high enough.
  6. Close the 'Volume Control' box, and then click 'OK.'
If you're using an external microphone, and the volume is set properly, check that the device is securely connected to your computer.
And if that doesn't solve the problem, make sure your microphone of choice is selected in the 'Output - speakers or headset' drop-down menu in the 'Audio' section of your Google Talk Settings.

Cheers!!

Built in microphone wont work


try re-installing the driver.

it's a bit complicated, but if you could figure out what kind of microphone you have i could get it for you.

right now try googling your computer make and model, plus "microphone driver"
it should come up with a link to download something, then install that if it looks trustworthy enough.

The person I am speaking with does not hear me (He is deaf).
The microphone function does not appear to be working. I have adjusted the volume and that's not the problem (You must speak as well).
I have plugged both jacks (microphone and speaker) into my PC hard drive and am using my PC to talk on Skype (You cant plug even a single jack in the hard drive).
Problem solved!

Skype


Audio Setup for Windows XP and Vista

1. Audio settings, in Windows and Skype

XP: Windows Control Panel / Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices / Sounds & Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Adjust Audio Properties"

Volume / Device Volume: Make sure “Mute” is NOT checked in this window.
Volume / Device Volume / Advanced: If there is no “Microphone” section in this window, go to Options / Properties and check “Microphone” in the “Playback” list. Then make sure “Mute” IS checked in this window

Audio / Sound Playback: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording: Your on board sound/Sound Card
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume: Make sure "Microphone" is selected and the volume slider is at the center or higher
Audio / Sound Recording / Volume / Advanced: If “Microphone Boost” or “20db Boost” is present, select it


Vista: Windows Control Panel / Hardware and Sound / Sound / Manage Audio Devices
or Right-click speaker icon in system tray and select "Playback devices"

Playback: Your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Playback: Select your speakers or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Playback / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Playback / Properties / Levels: “Mute” is not on, volume slider in the middle

Recording: Your Microphone or on board sound/Sound card must appear in this list, and must show “Working”
Recording: Select your Microphone or on board sound/Sound Card, then click “Set Default”
Recording / Properties / General: Device Usage: “Use this device (enable)”
Recording / Properties / Custom: If “Microphone Boost” is present, select it.
Recording / Properties / Levels: Microphone volume should be centre or higher
Recording / Properties / Levels: If there is a “Mute” button, it must not be on

Skype / Tools / Options / Audio Settings:

Microphone: Your headset/mic or USB device or Web cam mic, as you prefer
Speakers: Your headset, USB device or speakers, as you prefer
Ringing: VoIPVoice USB Phone or on board sound/Sound Card; also tick Ring PC speaker

Note: The audio devices you want to use MUST be present in these Skype device lists. If they are not, check the device connections and driver installations again.

2. Microphone and Speaker connections

Check if your mic (pink) and speaker (lime) jacks are in the proper sockets (it is easy to reverse them) and fully inserted (they sometimes stick only partially inserted)
If your microphone or headset has a “Mute” switch, make sure it is not on
If your speakers or headset has a volume control, make sure it is turned up
For test only you can use an earphone instead of microphone (really)! Just unplug the microphone, plug the earphone into the microphone jack, and talk into your earphones. (I know it sounds silly, but it might tell you if your microphone is defective)
A standard microphone plugged into Line In will NOT work.

3. Check audio in Windows.

XP: Start / All Programs / Accessories / Entertainment / Sound Recorder

Vista: Start [Orb] / All Programs / Accessories / Sound Recorder

Make a short recording with the microphone; you should see the level meters moving as you speak. On Windows XP, you can then play back what you recorded.

4. Once done, test with Skype Test Call (echo123).

Feed back from speaker


Obviously it will make feedback. Microphone should be put on mute. Putting microphone on mute will not stop it working for recording sound or talking on voice chat. All you need to do is double click on speaker icon on system tray check the mute box of the Mic channel.

Good Luck
