Question about Logitech Webcam

1 Answer

Other person cannot hear me

I have a Dell Latitude 510 laptop (4 years old) that has a mic jack. I purchased a Logitech webcam with built-in mic and USB connector, and though the video works fine, and I hear people through the laptop speakers, people cannot hear me. Is there a compatibility problem?

I have just installed a Logitech webcam C120 and I did receive the sound from the person I was calling, but no sound from me, is there a microphone included in this webcam, or have I bought the wrong one


I don't believe this unit has built in microphone. If you are using live messenger or skype for the camera you can go into the audio and video setup, in there you can tell if you have a mic or not. the box which would let you choose your mic (many computers have built in mic) if the box says no mic attached, you don't have one. you can buy a cheap mic from radio shack or store like best buy. they cost less than 10 bucks. of course you could use anymic that you can plug into the 1/8 in jack on your comptuer ( the red one).

You need to check if the mic/s is working?
Are you certain the Logitech webcam has a built-in mic?
To check if the mic works go to Start - All programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder and test record your voice and play back to check, also try it with the laptop's built-in mic (if it has one) and the Logitech mic.
If both mics work then you have a choice of which one you can use in Skype, most likely the best one would be the Logitech one.

You need to configure your audio settings in Skype.
When you open Skype click on Tools - Options - Audio Settings and click on Select Microphone and select the microphone you are using and save the setting.

If you still have problems get back to me with all details and error messages.

We both see eachother and they can hear me but i cant hear them


It is an easy fix on Skype, I am assuming that is the program you are using for video conferencing. If not you will have to do just about the same thing to correct it. In Skype go to the tools selection on the top bar, select options from the menu, select audio settings and use the drop down selection list and change the source to the USB Mic on the camera from the current selection. You should be able to hear them once this is done. In other programs you need to do just about the same thing since windows uses the default mic. plug in the back of the computer. You just have to change it to the correct source for the mic. Good Luck, RAC

Be sure that your headphone mic plug jack is plugged in to the mic jack (right-most jack) and not the second headphone jack. If so, check your sound setting in Control Panel and make sure the mic is enabled and the volume slider for it is up.
