I have just brought a Logitec Webcam C120 and cannot get any sound. Do I have to get a microphone? When I do the sound test can't get any recording back.


Hi lynne_law ,

Many people mistakenly think that webcam can be used for audio as well as video transmission.

  1. Webcams don't usually come with microphones , therefore you would require a separate microphone for your voice recordings and voice chats.
  2. I would suggest you get a headset which would have the microphone option as well , or you can get a hand held mic.
  3. Once you get a new mic, you need to connect it to your computer by plugging in the mic in the appropriate slot , and by default the mic should work.
  4. If it does not work , you just need to change the microphone settings using the volume control option or audio settings via control panel.
Hope this helps ... ) Your feedback would be appreciated.

I have just purchased Logitech QuickCam E3100 - is there a microphone in this or do I need to purchase a seperate microphone or replace for a combined Web Cam and microphone?


Get a separate microphone, do not get a combo. This way you can position your camera at an ideal position and your mic as a perfect position to pick up your voice. combo units are nice because its one less thing but you will be unhappy with the results

IM PLus # 3500 Series Mic works one day but not the next. Video is fine, but mic isn't. I've looked at all the settings but the mic doesn't pick up my voice.


Several possibilities:

1. You may have inadvertently muted your microphone.

2. You may have multiple devices identified as the microphone, so that might be causing a conflict.

Multiple ways these might be fixed:
1. If you have a media-controller keyboard, look for a mute / unmute button there to see if that helps.

2. Alternately, open the Control Panel and open up the Sounds category. Navigate to the Recording tab and ensure you have identified the proper device.

3. Ensure your volume control utility for Recording has not checked Mute on the microphone.

Guessing you are using Microsoft product. Open the Control Panel

Skype video using Acer Aspire Mini Laptop camera?


If you have a WEB camera you need to configure your video Webcam settings. Open Skype click on Tools - Options - Video Settings - select your Webcam model. When you open Skype click on Tools - Options - Audio Settings and click on Microphone and select the microphone you are using and save the setting.
If you still have problems with your mic. then - To test if the microphone is working, go to Start - Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder and record you voice. Can you see your voice recording, the green line should vary as you speek.
If you see a flat green line, then the microphone is either faulty or the wrong microphone is selected.

IT DOES NOT WORK ECM-MS907 Professional...


Just in case you have having the same problem as me....

The reason why my microphone was giving mixed results was because I was using the wrong setting. The microphone slider says "90 degrees" and "120 degrees." I assumed that these angles refered to the area that the microphone picked up. So for a single narrow sound source, like my voice, the narrower, 90 degrees setting seemed appropriate.

Now that I have looked at the manual I see it is the reverse (weird but true. Perhaps the angles refer to the angles that the microphone ignores completely under each setting?).

I have been recording my voice. I noticed that sometimes the sound was good and other times the sound level was too low. I think that the reason is because sometimes I inadvertantly set the microphone to the 120 degree setting, which picks up my voice well, while at other times I set the mic to the 90 degree setting which attempts to pick up sound from a wider area, giving the central source less prominence.Setting the microphone to the 120 degree setting cured my problem. I hope it cures your problem too.

The manual is here:

Voice does not work


You probably want to go into your Quickcam settings (audio) and make sure the microphone is set to the ‘Logitech Microphone.’
