Not working ? - troubleshoot your drivers and software - get your cam working before moving on

Working OK ?

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

The sound card of my emachine E725 is not working


You may want to adjust the mic volume on the settings of your microphone as it would seem skype loves to auto adjust and turn it all the way up to where the mic no longer hears you. So just set it down as far as you can go and then do this each time that skype blasts the volume of your mic.

Other person cannot hear me


Have you checked to see if you microphone is muted? Go on control panel, then Hardware and Sound, then Sound, then manage audio devices. Go on recording, click microphone, then levels and if it is not on high volume drag it so it is, the click ok. If it was muted, then this should have fixed the problem.

The person I am speaking with does not hear me (He is deaf).
The microphone function does not appear to be working. I have adjusted the volume and that's not the problem (You must speak as well).
I have plugged both jacks (microphone and speaker) into my PC hard drive and am using my PC to talk on Skype (You cant plug even a single jack in the hard drive).
Problem solved!

Where is the built-in microphone.No one can hear me on Skype, yet it says microphone volume is low onscreen and I reset to high, but it still reads LOW


Microphone should be located on the lid of laptop above the screen by the latch release button. You will see a small rectangular hole (if you have a built-in webcam it is to the left of it)

Everything works except the person I call cannot hear me. I am using skype. The echo check on skype works, I have tried two other cameras and I have the same problem. No matter how I change the settings...


The Camera and Audio setups are unrelated in both Windows and Skype. Please check your Windows Audio devices volume settings and specifically the Microphone settings: it appears to be disabled or the volume level set much too low. The windows settings overrides the settings in Skype (or in other words, Skype volume settings are a subset of the Windows volume settings). Check that Skype audio is setup properly after starting Skype: Tools -> Options -> Audio Settings -> select your required devices and volume levels. During this ajustment process, make free calls to Skype 'Echo / Sound Test Services".
Hope it helps! Let me know how you go!

I can hear the other party but I can't hear them. it says that my mic is mute....how do I undo this?


You mean "I can hear the other party but they cant hear me"

Skype probably didnt change your microphone.

Go to Skype Tools>Options>General>Audio Settings and on the Microphone dropdown menu, make sure your headset is selected. If it's installed correctly and you talk into it, you should see the volume bar start moving. Click save and start talking!

This is assuming you've already gone into sound proporties in windows and made your headset the default microphone and checked the volume settings on it.
