Microsoft VX-6000 audio problem - static noise coming from speakers

I just installed the MS VX-6000 webcam. The video looks fine, but when the speaker volume in unmuted, a static noise comes from the speakers. Adjusting the volume just makes the sound louder or softer. Do you know what I can do to make this problem go away? We're running Windows XP, SPS2 on an HP m7250n.

    I have the same problem. I tried to initiate a video call and the other side can hear me just fine, but all I get is static and speaker feedback. I've tried calling Microsoft and working with them, but so far to no avail. I've done all the on-line support recommendations - resetting the sound options, moving the speakers...nothing.

    I have installed a Microsoft NX-3000 live video cam and just recently have been getting a loud pulsating noise over the speakers, both internal and external. My system is wireless. I have disconnected and reconnected all connections and it did not resolve the problem. The lights on the router pulsate with the noise.

You need a screwdriver, lots of courage and readiness to void the camera warranty.

Got that?
Now follow the instructions

When I activate my video on the vx-6000, the other


Does that webcam have a USB plug AND an audio jack to plug into your computer? If so, you don't need to plug in the audio jack connected to it, and that should help with the heavy static the other person gets. Then again, unless you have another mic plugged into your computer on a headset or something, you won't be able to send audio because the mic to the webcam would be unplugged.

I hope this helps.

No sound on webcam video call ONLY


You will probably need to reconfigure whatever software you are using for the video call to pull audio from the Onboard Mic from the Cam. If it is not configured to pull the audio from that Mic on the Cam, it may be looking for audio somewhere else. This is sadly an issue with a lot of Video Chat software applications.

Static when using lifecam - vx-6000


Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Audio is making a buzzing sound....


Normal 0 Two things can cause static.
First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphone between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud
