Sound problems When I am speaking on a video call with someone, I get sound interference in and out. They can always here me, but all I will hear is static. Is that my camera or theirs that is causing this?

It is most likely the camera at their end, as they are able to see and hear you clearly. Try to position your speakers away from sources of electromagnetic interference as well, and tell the other party to do the same with their microphone. Ask them to run an audio configuration test for their mic as well.

Random interference problem with Shure UR4D


I would need to hear it to be completely sure (does it sound a little bit like slow morse code?), but it sounds like what you're hearing is probably cell phone interference. Certain cell phones are more likely to cause it (anything with PTT capability) because of their transmitter power, but any cell phone close enough to the receiver could give you grief. If you're playing in unpredictable places, try to get the antennae well overhead of the audience, with a straight shot to the transmitters, and as close as is reasonably possible.

Logitech speaker feedback


Feedback is a sharp, loud noise that can come through the earphones of a headset unexpectedly---it occurs when the headset is getting sound (feed) from someone else speaking or playing music into a microphone. This sound can create a dangerous situation for someone who is operating expensive equipment or flying a plane at the time since it can disable hearing temporarily.
If you experience feedback often, it could also lead to serious hearing problems.

Mic Too Close to the Speaker or Volume Too High
The main cause of a feedback sound in a headset is proximity to a speaker. If a person holding a microphone on the other end gets too close to a speaker, it creates a loop of re-amplified sound that results in the loud, screeching noise. When the volume on the other party's microphone is too high, it is more vulnerable to picking up unwanted noise and feedback from speakers and sound output devices in the room. So make sure that you ask the other party to turn down the microphone to a normal level and stay far from speakers. b> Two Microphones Gathering Same Sound b> When the other party places two microphones too close to each other, it could cause feedback. When positioned toward the sound source (such as a person speaking) the microphones will both pick up the same audio and compete with each other when creating the output of sound, causing a sharp noise in your headset. This problem, called acoustic phase interference, is resolved by simply ensuring that the other party uses one microphone at a time. Poor-Quality Headset or Microphone b> One common cause of feedback is simply a poor-quality headset or microphone. Most modern headsets and microphones have noise-canceling features that manage and kill feedback before it has a chance to occur. These noise-canceling headsets are essential for pilots and aviation crew members. If you hear sudden feedback that is strong enough to hurt your ears, the headset or microphone is simply not properly equipped to actively cancel that unwanted noise before it hits your ears. Buy a higher-quality noise-canceling headset to manage the feedback noise when you're going about your tasks. Hope this helps.

There is always telephone line disturbance kind of sound coming from my subwoofer (on the base of my lenovo Y410 laptop) after i got the motherboard replaced. Please provide any solution.


Hi,

I've never encountered this before but my guess is that there's an interference causing the telephone like noise that you're hearing. Have you tried the following?

1. Try an external speaker or headphone > if it works there, read on.

2. Open Device Manager > Sound, Video, and Game Controllers > right click and Uninstall your Sound adapter and download the latest version here

3. Disable your microphone that might be the one causing the interference (click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound > Recording > Right click on your Microphone > Choose disable

If none of the steps above works for you, I'm sure that's a hardware problem (probably there's a wire loose somewhere) and you may want to have the computer checked.

Interference on Blaupunkt RD4 N1-02


Is it an loud sharp sound which varies according to your speed? May be a power problem - crossing lines. Take it by an auto stereo shop and ask the installer. Make sure they sell your brand. Someone would have to hear the sound in order to fix the problem. Hope this helps!

Any time I use the phone I hear some guy speak in spanish in the background. The person I am calling can hear also hear this. It happens with every call. How can I get rid of this?


Does it sound like a spanish-language radio station, or like someone else's phone call?

It could be radio interference in your phone, in which case you'll want to install an RF choke on the phone cord, using something like this item from Radio Shack: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103222

It could also be crosstalk from a neighbor's phone, in which case you'll want to call your phone company's repair number. That number should be on your phone bill, and they can walk you through troubleshooting steps.

People can hear me speak but I can't hear them


Sound inducers do go bad. Normal the same audio amplifier is used for both the ear piece and the speaker. Since the speak does work, it sounds like the ear piece has died.
