Re: Microphone Feedback

Turn the volume down, even if it's off.
The laptop picks up on anything near it, not necessarily audible sound.

How do I switch off the microphone to stop the speakers feeding back on my laptop. And how to set the levels when I am recording, to stop feedback.

I think it won't be possible to get rid of the feedback and quality will be poor when recording this way. Try software like Audacity and set the audio source to record directly from the sound card. The input device should be set to "Windows WASAPI" for Windows and output set to a loopback device.

How can i fix feedback problem

You can turn down the Mic, via the Sound Icon in the taskbar on the bottom right hand side.

You can go in to the Control Panel, pick Sounds and go to Advanced Tab. This allows microphone to be turned down in certain circumstances.

I hear feedback in my speakers

Your microphone volume is set too high. That causes ambient sounds to be amplified, picked up by the microphone and amplified even more.

The internal laptop microphone above the screen is producing feedback from the speakers and everytime the volume is raised above half way the feedback starts (very loud). It's definatley the mic because...

Most likely there's a shortage with the microphone connection, or is gone. You can turn if off if you dont use it via the control panel. But if you use microphone quite often then you can buy an external mic off ebay or some place you like. They come in elegant designs as well and they are fairly cheap.

Hope this helps.

Advent 6651 built in microphone won't turn off

The best way to avoid the feedback, caused by the microphone not turning off, is to turn the volume down all the way.

That way when you close the clamshell top, the microphone will not match up with the speakers to produce the Jimi Hendrix feedback screech.

Good Luck,

When i put my hand over the mircophone it makes a sqeeking noise and when i try use adcuity to do my lrics it says error check input

1. The sound that you are hearing when you put your hand over the microphone is just feedback. Try adjusting the microphone input volume down a little and this should help reduce or eliminate this feedback sound. The reason that it happens is because by putting your hand over the microphone, you arr changing the characteristics of the mic's picup as toyr hand helps with reverberation and echo, both of which increase the chance of feedback.
2. I am afraid i don't know the software called adcuity. Please could you let me know the software author and which version it is and i will try to help.

My voice keeps echoing and playing back at me

Does the laptop have a built-in microphone? Make sure the microphone output is turned off (muted) in the playback volume settings. It could be at just the right setting to be causing a decaying feedback. Also, many sound softwares today have other features for echo, reverb, etc. My Creative one has a vast selection of simulated reverb like Concert Hall, Bathroom, Basement, Cathedral, even one call Haunted Cavern. Look for these in the advanced options section of your sound controls. These normally aren't a part of the standard windows volume control. There should be a shortcut similar to Sound Mixer to access them, if you have it.

Hi Melissa,

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
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
