I installed a USB microphone but I'm not getting any sound from it when I test it. You can everything else that has sound, such as limewire, but you can't hear anything coming out of the speakers from the mic. It says it was installed correctly and all that. The volume for the mic is up, the computer speakers are turned up. When I tested it, it was showing that their was sound going into... but their was nothing coming out. I have no clue what to do. I've tried so many things. If you could help that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

Re: Installed USB microphone, but NO sound.
Select the device from control panel /sound and audio device / audio .../sound recording ...
if it doesnt work ...look for the device ( microphone ) on volume panel ( double click the speaker from the system tray ) if you do not see a volume for mic...click options..and check the microphone from there ...after that look out and be sure it s not muted...it has to work if it is proper installed..

SKYPE VIDEO PROBLEM To test if the Logitech QuickCam is functioning, check the USB cable; make sure it is connected properly. Then click on Start - All Program - Logitech - Logitech QuickCam and see if you can get the camera to capture your image/video. If this works then the fault is with the Skype configuration. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop off and the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - Video Settings and select the Logitech QuickCam Also check the Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save. Avoid connecting the WEBcam to an USB hub. SKYPE MICROPHONE PROBLEM If the person cannot hear you then, either your microphone driver not installed or not working OR the microphone is not configured in Skype. To test your microphone then click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound recorder. Then record your voice and then play it back. If this is OK then the microphone need to be configured in Skype. To configure the microphone - Open Skype - Tools - Options - Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save.
1. Try the microphone on another USB port and check. 2. If not OK, try the microphone on another computer and check. 3. If OK on another computer, re-install it or recover the O.S. from a backup. 4. If on another computer the same problem exists, the microphone could have a internal control defect.
when you plug it into the usb port it should automatically install itself if it does not you might have to install it manually
if your computer came with
a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it click start control panel
administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all
of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark
! or red x right click to reinstall
drivers or if you can see your usb but
its not working ports(com&lpt)right click update
driver click start control panel
sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box
untick it or select audio from the microphone drop down list make sure you
have the right one selected and in the volume box make sure the microphone box
has a tick in it or select the voice tab and make sure that you have the right
media selected also select volume make sure the box for microphone has a tick
in ithope this helps
SEU MICROFONE PRECISA DE UM RECURSO CHAMADO PHANTON POWER QUE NADA MAIS é DO QUE UMA ALIMENTAçãO DE 48 VOLTS, PORTANTO NECESSITA DE UM APARELHO INTERMEDIARIO, COMO UMA MESA DE SOM COM ESTE DISPOSITIVO OU UM ADAPTADOR PHANTON POWER COM SAIDA USB PARA O SEU PC, NO CASO DA MESA TAMBEM é NECESSARIO UMA PLACA DE AUDIO COM CONEXãO USB EXEMPLO UCA 202 DA BEHRINGER , PODES CRER Só ASSIM FUNCIONA E SOM é MUITO BOM.
The microphone may not work because of a hardware or configuration
problem. To determine if it's a hardware problem, test the microphone
in Sound Recorder.
Click "Start," > "Programs" ("All Programs" for Windows XP) > "Accessories" > "Entertainment" > "Sound Recorder."
Click the Record button and speak into the microphone of the
camera. You should see the green line move, indicating the application
is picking up sound.
Click the Stop button.
Click the Play button. If there is no sound at playback, check to make sure the correct device is selected.
Click "Edit," then "Audio Properties."
Make sure Logitech is listed as the Preferred device for "Sound recording."
The microphone may also be defective. To test this, try the camera on another USB enabled system.
If you can record sound in Sound Recorder, but not in the QuickCam
application, try setting the Logitech Microphone as the Preferred
device in Audio Properties.
to put that in cam microphone working, as I have an equal trade mark cam, you need to see on audio settings properties and change the "recording device" to usb device, instaid of the soundcard as is. that means that the sound recording goes to the cam's microphone.
the steps are:
1- rigth mouse click on the speaker next to the clock OPEN VOLUME CONTROL
2- OPTIONS - PROPERTIES - RECORDING
3 - in MIXER/RECORDING DEVICE (where is your soundcard's name) change to USB DEVICE and then OK
4- select MICROPHONE and the close the volume control windows
5- you can test the mic settings in messenger (any version) because of volume and to a clearest voice sound in your pc.
ATTENTION: carefull with the distance between your cam and your sound speakers because of distorcing sound and feedback
For XP users,try: >Start >ControlPanel >Sounds and Audio Devices >Audio >Sound Playback Click on drop down menu arrow. If there are two audio devices listed: Deselect current device; select second device. >OK
probably your sound card for your computer is damage or you will have to check your installed drivers once more if that does not work.get a sound card that can fit on computer slot.since your computer sound card is built onto the mother board.good luck.
