Mic not working!

Go to logitech's website and look for the latest driver for your microphone:

Install it, plug in mic, load audacity/garageband, or any windows recording application, and ensure the mic input on the application is set to the plugged in logitech/labtec mic. Ensure the input volume is set to a level that responds when speaking into mic. Press record to see if it picks up the audio.

If the mic mute switch is not on and there is no red light in the mic arm then its likely you have a check in the 'mute mic' box in your sound manager. Open Volume control, choose options->properties-> recording. Check for checks in the boxes and remove them. Also make sure the slider for the mic is about half way up.

Logitech USB Desktop Microphone. I have Windows Vista. Followed install directions even though outdated. Looks like it is recording, and can save file, but no sound when playing it.


If there are more than recording device, then you have to select default recording device as you MIC connected to coresponding sound card..

For eg, if your MIC is connected to front panel and if the REAR IN is selected as a default device you wont able to record sound in Windows Vista..

To select default recording device

  1. Select your sound properties through the control panel or the sound icon in your system tray.
  2. Click on the properties tab,Check the recording box.
  3. Make sure you have selected the default device upon mutiple device

No sound when connected on aim

Is your microphone integrated into your webcam? Make sure the correct device is selected. Go into Edit, Settings, Enhanced IM. Under Audio and Video, make sure the Microphone device selected is a functioning mic, such as Logitech Mic, or if using a headset, select the USB headset (if usb) or your sound card if using a mic plugged into your built in or add-on sound card.

Mic not working

The cause of a Web Cam's microphone to stop working can be either a hardware issue or a result from incorrect configurations.
Determine whether it is a hardware problem by testing the microphone in Sound Recorder.

  1. Click "Start," > "Programs" ("All Programs" for Windows XP) > "Accessories" > "Entertainment" > "Sound Recorder."
  2. Click the Record button and speak into the microphone of the camera. You should see the green line move, indicating the application is picking up sound.
  3. Click the Stop button.
  4. Click the Play button. If there is no sound at playback, check to make sure the correct device is selected.
    1. Click "Edit," then "Audio Properties."
    2. Make sure Logitech is listed as the Preferred device for "Sound recording."
We also recommend using the camera on another USB enabled system.
If you can record sound in Sound Recorder, but not in the QuickCam application, try setting the Logitech Microphone as the Preferred device in Audio Properties.
Additional Information:
Multimedia keyboards that have the ability to control your computer volume may have software that can interfere with your webcamera's sound. If you have a Multimedia keyboard with volume control, the keyboard's software may need to be uninstalled in order for the camera's microphone to work properly in Windows.

My mic doesnt work

to put that in cam microphone working, you need to see on audio settings properties and change the "recording device" to usb audio device, instaid of the soundcard as is. That means that the sound recording will be from 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 AUDIO DEVICE and then OK
4- In the remaining volume control window, select MICROPHONE and then close all 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
