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

This is fault on the MIC within the unit.

If the fault repeatsthe webcam must be rechecked on another PC. Take opinion to consult if the webcam is under warranty

My webcam works fine but the microphone crackles all the time


Normal 0 Two things can cause static.
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.

Microphone within webcam crackles


If you have another Mic I would use that. Otherwise I don't know how to solve this, check out this page though http://support.microsoft.com/kb/921334

Under cause there is something about disturbances by monitor, router, televesions and speakers. Try getting your camera away from other things and see if the audio straightens out.

Mic noise


Hi manolopzo,

there is some pormenors that we can't never forget: see the record level of your mic and the distance between the mic and the speakers. if the distance is litle and the record level is high, you'll always have that feedback sound.
