Question about Skype IM

Skype microphone stopped working

I use Skype frequently, but the microphone just stopped working. I suspect this happened when I tried to upgrade. Even though I'm back to original version, still not working. I can hear the caller fine, they just can't hear me.

I have tried EVERYTHING. (Skype technical support, which gave me standard answers...Skype forums...tested several headsets...etc).

Here's my set-up:
Skype version 3.8.0.188
XP Professional, Version 2002, SP3
Using Plantronics headset via DSL connection

Anytime I try to talk to somebody , my skype stop working. please help me


First thing first, I would reinstall it, or make sure that you have an updated version. It sounds so miniscule, but it usually does the trick. If that does not work, I would contact Skype technical support.

Before doing so here is the standard list FYI:
To make a video call, you and the person you are calling will need:
Here is the connections trouble shoot website:

but definitely, if all requirements are met, I would give Skype a call :]

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.

Microphone of Dell latitude D610 not working


The D610 has two audio jacks. The one closest to the monitor has a picture of a microphone above it, and the one closest to the user has a picture of headphones above it. Do you have your microphone plugged into the correct jack?

Doesn't work with Skype


Fixed it: the microphone on the headphone was switched off - it's a bit of a design weakness in the Logitech headset: it's easy to unintentionally turn the microphone off while putting the headset on. The lower half of the right headphone's central medallion is a button - indicated by a crossed out microphone icon.

You need to check you owners manual, and see if they can tell you, if you need to reinstall drivers for the microphone. Go to the Toshiba usa website and check the support area for frequently asked questions and troubleshooting sections. You may find that someone had the problem and had a solution posted. If not use the customer service e-mail or telephone number to get technical assistance for your problem.I hope this helps you with your problem.

Microphone does not work


Yes, sometimes Skype messes with your hardware settings and sets it up to what "skype thinks works best", if you have System Restore turned on, try going back to the time before you installed that version of Skype.

Also, look in your Device Manager settings for anything screwy.
