You are talking about the little 3.5mm jack on the end of the microphone? That plugs into the back of your computer and it should be the pink ring on your sound card.
If that is not what you meant. Please describe further and I will be happy to assist you.
Thanks,
Lee

ConnectLand cl-me 606 goose neckdesktop microphone to desktop


Look for a 3.5 mm microphone port on the computer. Usually the port on the back of the desktop will have a pink surround. (There will be other ports there; the usual minimum are the green port for speakers and blue one for line-in.) Put the 3.5 mm jack on the end of the cord on the microphone into the port. If you have an add-in sound card, use the microphone port on the sound card.

Some machines will also have a front panel microphone port. This will have a small mike icon next to the port.

Next you need to ensure that the audio device is set to Microphone. For Windows systems (Vista/7/8), enter the Control Panel and go to the Hardware and Sound panel. Click on Manage Audio Devices under Sound. Then click on the Recording tab. Check if the microphone listed as plugged in. Make this the default recording device. (XP has a slightly different name for the panel.) For XP through Windows 7, click on the start button and then find the Control Panel listed on the right. For Windows 8, from the desktop, press the Ctrl and X keys at the same time. Then find the Control Panel in the list. (Alternatively, activate the Charms menu, Ctrl+C or hover on the upper right of the screen. Move down and click on the gear (Settings). Then select the Control Panel.)

If the computer doesn't indicate that the microphone is plugged in, make sure that the 3.5 mm plug is in the correct port. Next try the microphone on another computer. The audio card port could be damaged or the microphone cable could be faulty. If the microphone works on another computer, you can try a USB audio adapter (StarTech ICUSBAUDIO or similar) or a new sound card. (Note: some older sound cards do not work properly on newer versions of Windows. If you have a sound card installed and the motherboard has an on-board audio device, remove the sound card. Enable the on-board audio in the computer's BIOS. Install the appropriate audio drivers. Try that audio device. Accessing the BIOS will depend on computer. Often you can press Esc, F1, F2, F10 or Delete repeatedly after you turn on the computer. If Windows starts to boot, turn off the system and try again.) If another computer doesn't recognize the microphone, I'd recommend a new microphone. Fixing the cable isn't worth the effort.

I hope this helps.

The microphone on my ic014c webcam won't work!


if the microphone has a second cable with a jack plug ..than you have to use it in the pink inlet on the sound card ..and will work ..or in the mic in of the laptop ..
If there is no second cable (split cable ) with jack plug ..it means the mic is using the usb ..and in this case you have to get to the sound settings and select the usb for the mic ..Also select the usb for each instant messaging programs you use..to d that just open the program ...get to the tool options ..and select sound devices and under mic select the usb instead of regular windows default or sound driver ..

I am unablem to use the mic for the internet chat!!!!


Hi,

First of all find the latest version of the audio driver which is compatible to vista, as most of the drivers that are shipped with sound-card or motherboard cd contain drivers which have support for only until windows Xp.

So it is strongly recommended to download the latest audio driver from the internet for your sound-card or on board audio chipset. Install the vista compatible audio driver (sound driver) for your sound-card or motherboard audio. After this re-start your computer. Half of the work is done.


Now plug in the microphone in your sound-card / motherboard audio pin (generally pink in color for microphone).

After this go to control panel > sound and audio device settings. Check whether the microphone is detected by Vista or not. If not, check whether you have selected the frontal microphone or rear, as vista recognizes them separately unlike windows Xp. Correct the configuration of front/rear mic if needed.

Feedback sound


If moving the microphone doesn't work then suspect "microphonics" where a loose electronics component is vibrating and acting as a microphone. Could be cable. Unplug all microphone cables, still feedback? Right click speaker icon, sound properties, temporarily disable computer sound input devices. If still feedback then analog section of sound card (or motherboard sound chip) or your speaker system.

Labtech 524 microphone does not pick up sound


I have written a guide on How to convert Records and Tapes to CD. I have found that when someone asks me a question like yours here is what I tell them. Go to http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ Download the program Audacity. It is a completely free program. It works great for many audio applications. It does not have spware or adware or anything like that attached to it. In fact many studios use this program. Click on the Download Audacity 1.2.6 link to download the program. Install the program and open the main window. In the middle of the window you will see a field that is labeled Microphone. If the field is not set to Microphone then change it by clicking on the drop down menu. There are two slider controls to the left and right of the small microphone icon. Click on the sliders and set them at about 1/2. These 2 controls are your microphone input level and your Audacity main volume control. Now simply click on the round red record button. Talk into your microphone. If your mic is recording you should see recorded sound waves in the middle of the window. Click on the square stop button and then click on the rewind button. Next click on the green play button. Make sure your computer speakers are turned up. If this doesn't work your sound card may not have recording capabilities or you may have your mic plugged into the wrong connection on your tower. You can move the mic to a different connection and try recording again. Just don't plug into your speaker connection this could damage the microphone. You can check to see if your sound card has recording capabilities by competing the following On your desktop click on start - control panel - sound, speech, and audio devices then click on sound and audio devices. When the small Sound and Audio Device Window opens, click on the audio tab. Under the title sound recording, you should have a sound card listed in that field. For example my card is a SoundMaxDigital Audio. The field is right next to the small microphone icon. If there is no card listed you can buy a cheap one online or even at Wal - Mart. They are very easy to install. You just find an empty slot on *********** board and your computer should recognize the card.

Usin for an internet conference


You need to buy a Computer Calling Kit from Polycom. That is essentially a cable with a 2.5mm connector to the Polycom Soundstation 2W on one end and two 3.5 mm connectors to the PC Sound card end (one to the Microphone port and the other to the Speakers port).
