I cant get my guitar hero mike to work for the playstation 3...it has no buttons on it??? help


Does the mike work and you just can't navigate through the menus, or does the mike actually not work for anything at all? Test it in settings to make sure it works properly. Don't forget because they mike doesn't have any buttons on it, you need to use the controller for everything else.

External mike doesn't work


I'm assuming you have Windows Vista. If so, you may need to change the default microphone, particularly if you have a built-in microphone on the computer.
1. Right-click the speaker icon next to the clock in the system tray.
2. Select "Recording Devices"
3. Select "Microphone" or whatever item you want to record with.

There will be a VU meter showing the input level. Try talking into you mike and see if the VU meter goes up. If so, you're good to go.

If not:
1. Click the "Properties" button in the screen mentioned above
2. Move the "Volume" and "Boost" sliders up.
3. Click "OK."
4. Check your VU meter again.

If this does not work it is possible you selected the properties for the wrong device. Click on another device and repeat the last 4 steps again.

W300i speaker stopped working, other side cannot hear my voice


Hi, my w300i speaker (mike) stopped working, my voice cannot be heard on the other side, but, when I connect the handsfree, things become fine.

Seems, the internal mike has got a problem, please suggest a remedy?

is it mandatory to get the mike changed, something similar had happened a year back and that time, they had said, that since the mike is a part of the board, the entire circuit board needs to get replaced.

Any idea, how much the board (circuit) will cost in Mumbai, India?

Mike don't work


Try using it with a plug in headset to make sure it is the mike. If calls work with plug in then you are probably right, parts like the mike are difficult to get try googling pda parts or smartphone parts maybe you will find someone who has these.
