How can I tell if my microphone is muted?

When trying to use Skype from my laptop, the party I call cannot hear me at all, although I hear them fine. Skype tells me that perhaps the microphone on this laptop is muted. I neither know where the mike is, nor how to un-mute it. Can you help? Thanks.

SOURCE: My microphone won't work. I can't hear my voice.Toshiba Satellite

Check which microphone device u have set up. Try changing it around. Also try just speaking closer to the microphone and into the mic. Some mics just are not good.

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.

You can try this, it might be the problem. The microphone is by default, muted. The Skype program "should" un-mute it, but sometimes the notebooks mic is not fully compliant. So, to manually un-mute the microphone, go into the volume control panel by double clicking the speaker icon in the system tray. If the microphone section is not displayed toward the right, you'll have to activate it in the Options|Properties menu item. Put a check mark in the box beside microphone. Remove the check mark in the mute box under microphone.

Sometimes programs like Skype will lose the Mic settings and chose another input channel. Check your operating system's audio settings under something similar to "Recording" and see if microphone is checkboxed and turned up. Also, make sure it is not muted on Skype and/or the operating system.

If you have Windows XP, for example, look for the audio settings icon (little speaker) just left of clock area. Open and go to "options". Choose "properties" then "Recording". Look that your microphone is "Selected" with a checkbox and is turned up. To hear yourself during this, you will need to go back and choose "Playback" instead of "Recording" and de-select "mute" (if checked) for microphone and turn it up to see if you hear yourself talking over the speakers/headphones.

Also, check the Skype settings for microphone and that Skype has the correct sound device selected for input - being your microphone and not another device.

Also make sure that there is not a manual, physical volume adjustment for the microphone on the laptop case itself. Could even be a mute button.

I skpe using my Asus, and my microphone does not work.The other party can't me...how do I solve this please


Hi

Are you sure that this laptop has a build in microphone? or are you using a external microphone?

in either case the most likely problem is that the skype sound settings on the input are wrong.

open skype, tools, options, then the audio settings page.
On the microphone, try all the possible options offered and see if it detects your voice, you can also try calling the skype test number / echo123.

When you see the volume bar light up green like this as you speak or tap the microphone its working.

If you are using a external microphone, are you sure you have it on the right slot? Try the other plugs on the laptop and then go over the options again and see if you get sound.

You should also check from volume control that the microphone is not muted.

To check that open up start -> control panel -> sounds -> recording -> select the microphone and click properties -> check the levels tap and make sure its not muted and its turned up to full volume.

also some microphones have a on off switch on the wire, make sure its turned on.

By now you should be able to talk on skype.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks,
Ekse

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.
