Normal 0 First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphone between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud

How do I talk to someone on skype


1. First you must download the skype software and signup for a free account. You can do all of this at http://www.skype.com 2. You must make sure that you have a webcam, either built into your computer or a third party webcam that you bought in order to do video conferencing. If you want to do just voice, you need to make sure you have a mic. USB mics for $10 do a really good job and you can get them from any computer retail shop. 3. Once you sign up and make sure all the equipment is hooked up you need to search/find the person you want to skype with who has hopefully performed the same first 2 steps you have and sent you there username via email or some other method. 4. Once you find them through the skype built in search you should have an option to call that person, click on the icon that looks like a phone. 5. This should ring on the other persons computer and all they have to do is click on the answer button that pops up and you should be talking to each other.
Other than the signup and making sure you have a mic or webcam plugged into the computer all the steps can be done from within the skype software you downloaded above.
Hope this helps you on your way,
Good Luck.

I can hear the other person clearly, but they cannot hear me when I'm on google talk or Skype


are you on a desktop or laptop? if on a desktop sometimes there are multiple places to plug in your mic, make sure you have not only plugged it in the right port, AND checked to see how high your mic sensitivity is on the software side.

on skype, click TOOLS, OPTIONS, Audio settings and talk, if you see the green power meter lighting up then make sure to slide the sensitivity up, or check and uncheck the auto feature, depending on where you had it try this and see what you get. Also turn donw your speakers as if your speakers are getting a feedback loop or are hearing the other people talk louder than it can hear you then it wont work either.

Help I have a webcam built-in to my fujitsu laptop, how does it turn on??


Webcams are either started by their specific programs or they are used by the IMs that you use. To use with the IM you must configure the IM (Skype, Yahoo Messenger, MSN or whatever you have) from their respective Tools->Options->Video to use this webcam as the default camera. Also in the Audio option you must use the built in mic of this laptop as the default mic.
Once you have done this then everytime you use the IM for video talk or just talk then the webcam and mic or just the mic will be used automatically.
While if you use the specific program to use the webcam then the webcam and mic will be used without any configuration. However, you must configure things like mirroring and colors etc so that when you move to the left the video should show you moving left and not otherwise.
Happy Holidays.

How do I call someone with a web cam


Well, webcams can't connect by themself. You need programs, MSN or Skype if you have them. Whatever program it is you will need to inform me so I can help, this is too generic to fix. MSN: While talking to someone, Tools> Audio and Video> Option> Set up your audio and mic press Next, Set up your video, adjust so you can see yourself clearly, then press Finish. When you talk to someone you will be able to see if they have a webcam, in the meantime you can share your webcam (show your cam) to that person. Like I said, depending on your program it varies.

SKYPE mic of the quickcam 3500 doesnt work with skype


This webcam (E3500 Logitech) has problems with the mic.
Try to adjust microphone recording volume to less than 90%, as over 90% the mic is muted, not only in Skype, but also in other applications.

In Skype: go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings.
Uncheck "Automatically adjust microphone settings", then adjust microphone volume to less than 90% (some may need to go less than 60% to get the mic working).
