First check the status on your system's sound settings. Make sure none are on mute.
If your using PC then go into hardware manager and look for any yellow question marks in you're hardware lineup. Make sure all of your devices are loaded properly. If they aren't and you happen to see any of those yellow question marks then reload the drivers. Eather that or chew relentlessly on the microphone until it agrees to cooperate with you.

How to connect mike in computer


  • Look for the sound card on the back of the computer. This will have a 15-pin connector and several colored jacks.

  • Locate the microphone jack. Although some manufacturers will stray from the norm, the microphone jack is typically colored red or pink and/or will probably have a picture of a microphone.

  • Connect the microphone into the jack.

  • Click "Start," then click "Control Panel," then click "Hardware and Sound," then click "Manage Audio Devices" under the "Sound" category. This opens the "Sound" window.

  • Click the "Recording" tab. Here you will see a picture of a microphone. To the right of the picture should be a sound bar.

  • Test the microphone by speaking into it. If the sound bar lights up, then the microphone is plugged in correctly and ready to use. If the sound bar remains gray, then there is no signal. Try another jack on your sound card and repeat the steps to test your microphone. If you still can't get the microphone to work review your computer documentation or contact the manufacturer's technical support.

    I CAN SEE OTHER PERSON AND THEY CAN SEE ME BUT CANT HEAR ME BUT I CAN HEAR THEM .WHAT HAVE I DONE WRONG


    The problem is either the microphone is not connected/faulty or the wrong microphone is selected in the Skype Audio setting.

    If the sound is doesn't work then open Device Manager - Sound, video and game controllers and check the microphone is enabled and working. If it isn't listed or has a yellow ? against the microphone then you need to install the microphone device driver.
    If the microphone is working then open Skype then click on Tools tab -then Options - Audio Settings - then in microphone setting and click on the microphone list to select your model microphone. Then Save your settings.
    To test your microphone settings then go to Contact list and select Echo / Sound Test.Service and follow the instructions. If this works then your friends will be able to hear you,

    No sound from microphone nor headphones


    No sound should be coming from the microphone. Its... a microphone. And if you cant get any sound through your heaphones, be sure that you are not plugging them into the microphone port, and into the headphone port or line out port.

    Backpanel socket for microphone is not recognised. Speaker socket is alright.


    in order to hear sound on the microphone you need to check the Mixer settings as the default setting for microphone (for playback) is mute as you would get some horrible feedback..

    double click on the speaker icon in the bottom left and chose properties from the options menu you may (or may not) have the option to select microphone for playback, however there should be a setting for recording which should give you a slider to set the recording levels for the microphone, use sound recorder or other recording software to test microphone is working

    I CANNOT GET THE MICROPHONE WORKING


    This could be due to several reasons - 
    > Faulty microphone (something could be wrong with the device, or the input jack) - Try using your microphone on a friend's PC. If it is working fine, then proceed to the next line.

    > Incorrectly installed sound card - Have you installed the sound card and its drivers correctly? Update your sound card's drivers, and then give it a try with the microphone.
    > Go to Control Panel->Sounds and Audio Devices. Go to Audio tab, and in the Sound Recording  section, check whether your sound card is selected. Click on Volume button here, and ensure that Microphone is "Selected". Do the same with the Voice tab too.

    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).
