If the sound card and the microphone are working, then the problem has something to do with the Sound Settings.

If you are running a Windows-based computer, please follow the steps below:

1. Check the physical connection, make sure that the 3.5mm connectors are properly connected to the right jack.

2. Locate the 'Speaker' icon on the 'Tast Bar' (which is down by the clock). Click on it and make sure that the volume is set to maximum.

3. Go to the Control Panel > Open the "Sounds" or "Sounds and Audio Devices"

4. Click the "Audio" tab and make sure that the Sound Recording is set to the right device (which is the name of your sound card).

5. Then check the box for "Use default devices" > Apply > OK

Hope these helps and have a great day!

Hi there, I've just bought an Acer notebook ASPIRE 5750, windows 7 home office. Everything is ok, but softwares like speech recognition, skype and google talk, don't recognize my microphone...

You may have to disable the onboard microphone to use the connected hardware.
Realtek is very picky, same goes with speakers connected to the back and front at the same time, no sound. Disable the one you are not using.

On my cd 130 I can hear the person I have called, but they can't hear me. Is there a way to solve this? kind regards: Fred

Tray to disassembly the unit, find the microphone and search for a hole where the ear is entering into the microphone on the housing. Try to clean that hole or the microphone clips where it connect on the motherboard.
If this didn't solve your problem, change microphone.

Microphone set up

You should probably try reinstalling your sound drivers.
If thats not the case then there might be somethin wrong with your microphone jack.

I can hear but cannot be heard.

I have an actual solution... I went to motorola site and found this...

Have questions about your cell phone/mobile device or Bluetooth headset?

Our Call Centers are open from Monday through Friday from 7.00 a.m. to 10.00pm; Saturday and Sunday 9.00 a.m. To 6.00 p.m. (CST)

Please call Motorola customer service at: 1-800-331-6456

When I called I did a quick song and dance with the auto system (just say agent and it goes away) and explained to a "foreign" sounding gentleman what my issue was and after wasting about 5 minutes of my time attempting to get it to work he said they (Motorola) was going to upgrade my headset to the H710 for free. According to him I should have my new headset in less than a week. We shall see.

Sounds like the microphone in the handset came loose or went bad. Turn the phone off. Press and hold buttons 1, 2, and 3 while turning phone back on. This puts you in self test mode. Follow instructions on screen until you get to audio loopback test. Put phone to your ear and talk like you normally would. If test fails the mic is bad. Take it in to a service center.
