SOURCE: Microphone


To figure out which of the 4 wires go where, you would need access/use of a continuity tester (ohmmeter). You have to wing it from the ohmmeter reading to distinguish the ground/common, left, right and mic. Please refer to the diagram below.


Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: pc microphone

i found a solution under the control panel. to configure some settings under the default view of the control panel, use the Ease of Access icon. this does not allow you to see the actual device. by switching to the classic view, use the Speech Recognition Option, which showed that i had 3 microphone drivers installed. all that needed to be done was to select the one i was using as the default.

My microphone is not recording

I don't think you have the microphone set as a recording device in the Audio Sound properties. Click Start/Control Panel and check to make sure the microphone is set as a recording device.
You can also get there by clicking on the megaphone at the bottom right near the time. If the microphone is not checked as a recording device, you can talk till you turn blue and it will never record.

On the microphone setup page, it keeps on asking me to say 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and I made sure my audio settings were correct in my control panel. i don't know why it's not working!

Check to make sure that you have connected the microphone to a microphone port. Headphone ports are identical to microphone ports physically, however they will not accept audio input. If you have verified that the microphone is connected to a microphone jack and the device still does not work, you may be using an old or low quality microphone which is not good enough to detect your voice. You might need to buy a higher quality microphone. If this is not the case, your microphone may be broken. You can check this by using a recording program like audacity ( to do a test recording and make sure that the microphone is actually recording. If none of the above seem to be the issue, then make sure you are speaking loudly and clearly. Voice recognition software is not always good at picking up your voice and you may need to enunciate your speech more, especially if English is not your first language or you have an accent. Good luck!

Please remove the condenser microphone and take it any service shop or spare parts shop to get a replacement. Unfortunately we are creating more junk in our World by throwing away such electronic units when most of them can be repaired and used.
You can slavage this from any old set but since time is our greatest enemy we tend to choose the short way. I hope you try to get this and try to get this replaced and working. Hope I could help this way/ Good day

After installing my webcam, my microphone is not working on my laptop. I tried it on another machine and it worked fine. Is there a setting we are missing?

Yes, it is because GearHead WC330I WebCam has built-in microphone and apparently you also installed it's microphone.

What you can do now is to select which microphone to use and disable the other one.

Got to "Control Panel" Select "Sound" icon. From the "Sound Window" select "Recording" tab and disable one of your microphone which you don not want to use.

Hope this helps you. Thank you for using Fixya.

Webbcam works but no sound or microphone

First, make sure you have a webcam with a microphone, and run any test software the webcam came with to check and make sure it is *supposed* to work. Next, open SOUND PROPERTIES through the CONTROL PANEL and then from the menu go to ADVANCED and RECORDING and OKAY, to bring up a volume array that includes the control MICROPHONE. Then, dig around to make sure MICROPHONE is the input being selected for amplification, and try ADVANCED on MICROPHONE and turn on BOOST if it has this control. You can test whether all of this worked by opening SOUND RECORDER from ACCESSORIES and making a short recording of yourself cursing the machine and everyone who designs them. If it plays back normally, try your web camera again. If it still has no sound, the problem is in the settings of the web camera itself. Open whatever software it came with and check setting like MUTE and MICROPHONE VOLUME are set correctly.

Good luck...
