Built-in Mic Issue

Hey all!

Okay, this issue started a while ago ( Maybe... a month or two? ) but my tech-boyfriend is having trouble figuring this out too so I decided to come here.

No matter what I do, my built-in mic refuses to pick up any sound. My boyfriend claims he can hear SOMETHING on his end, just not my voice. Which is very odd, right?

I've tried fiddling with the volume control and have had no luck there. Yes, I did try updating all my drivers. No luck there either. I don't want to have to throw away money right off the bat so I'm hoping you guys can help me or at least point me in the right direction.

Thank you!

    "test your hardware at audio properties. click voice tab then click test hardware tab. follow the steps."

    I followed the steps and it did not pick up my voice or play back any sound. I checked the volume and it was up. I even moved so I was as close as I could get to the internal mic's general area.

Sounds to me like a laser alignment issue, quickly get a support case going with the Manufacturer as most have a one year warranty whether or not you have a receipt.

2004 Chevy Impala lowbeam headlamp socket/connector burns--though bulb is fine. Replaced once already and now same socket has burned again--and the bulb is still okay. What gives?

Hi Miles, Have you replaced the head lamp bulbs and maybe used a higher output? That can overheat the fuses and or the connectors. The over heating and damage will usually be caused by loose connections causing high resistance and heating. Make sure the connections are tight. Regards John

When using a usb design and very occasionally when using a built in design the screen switches off without warning and the machine either judders to a halt or just goes on madly stitching in the same place...

This is probably one of those dreaded instances of a problem that the technician cant reproduce. It sounds like a main board issue that is not consistent and therefore the tech doesnt know which direction to take. If you purchased the machine at a dealer store you normally have a 1 year free service period and the part should be a warranty item. Ask them for help in resolving the issue.

LC-52 SB55U - Power on problem

I've read online that upgrading to the latest firmware sometimes resolves this issue. That's kind of shooting in the dark though - I personally would not feel completely confident that a FW flash would actually resolve the issue (as it could still be lurking beneath somewhere, waiting to surface again). If you have no warranty, then the FW flash is not a bad option. It's relatively easy and virtually impossible to screw up!

If you're still under warranty, then I imagine you've figured out by now that you'll need to contact Sharp to fix this issue. Mine was luckily under the extended (15-month) factory warranty when this first happened to me a few weeks ago. I was 13+ months out from date of purchase. Sharp support confirmed today that a tech needed to come out for an all-day appointment next week to troubleshoot the TV. Thank goodness for the extra 3 month warranty I got when signing up for the Aquos Advantage club! Otherwise, my $3400 investment might have cost me at least $700-$800 to fix - only a year out from purchase!

I'll post the root cause once the Sharp tech has left my place later this coming week, so a root cause can be identified. There's no guarantee, however, that my root cause will be the same as yours - despite the fact that I am also getting three sets of clicks - there is no guarantee that we have the same issue!

Good luck!

Problems with my MXL 990 (radio)

I guarantee you the antennas are most likely the culprit. Your only solution is to have a tech check the unit, OR purchase an inline RF filter from Radio Shack. It is also possible that you have a capacitor or other component going bad, that is causing the unit to heterodyne and become a nice front end for a radio receiver.

You do have other microphones, and they do not do this. Averages says it is most likely the microphone has an issue or its design. I have one of these MXL 990s too, and my mic began motorboating a few months ago while I was trying to record with it. It may be a quality issue with these mics. They aren't complicated though, any component electronic tech should be able to check it out.

Hey Tafari, It's an overheating issue that is common in xbox 360 models made between a certain date range. I had the same problem a few months ago.

All you gotta do is contact Microsoft tech support and provide them with your serial number. They'll ask you a couple of questions and then they'll get you to ship them the 360. (They pay for shipping)

They'll try to repair it, but if your lucky like me, you might get a new xbox 360 with 1 month of xbox live for free.

Hope this helps. Worked for me, should work for you.

Hello MykeIB, First try to locate the service telephone number for your fan (model type). If that does not work try locating a appliance service center in your area, and request a direct telephone number to assist you. This should help you out. Okay Spurs21
