Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I bout a microphone at Target. The name is 'PC Microphone with Detachable Laptop Mic' and it is from General Electris. It says it is supposed to work on Vista, Mac, Linux and Messengers, such as Yahoo, MSN and Skype. Well I keep trying to talk on MSN, but nothing works. I hold F2 and try to say something, but then it says 'Your Voice Clip was not sent because no sound was detected in the recording.' I have a Windows Vista Home Premium. Any help here? Regards, Mark

Be sure mic is plug in the right input (the pink one).
Then open sound properties (in vista search for sound in startup menu) and then configure and test your mic in the recording tab.

I can't seem to figure out how to connect a vocal microphone or were to plug it in in the onkyo tx- sr804 please help!!


for modern receiver, it normally does not allow vocal microphone input. vocal microphone requires an amplification stage which are not normally there. to do this, you'll either need to buy a very cheap mic preamp or a karaoke machine to do this

If your trying to have a PA sytem with these unit, you need to have a

separate mic mixer.


But if your trying to setup a Videoke Sing-along System , just connect

But if you need and feel to DIY, there is another option

and only if you can.

I have sc-eh50 technics, yes I know its old, LOL I have my laptop working through this, sounds good. I now wanna use a Microphone for my wifes birthday party, at the same time playing music IE when...


Old? Try 70's and 80's vintage hardware ;-)

Your PC probably supports a mic (most do). Investigate the Sound Controls to enable and control it and look for the (usually Pink) input on the front panel.

Be cautious about feedback. It can kill tweeters in an instant. Experiment with speaker loudness and microphone proximity to them. Keep a good audible distance.

Is there a microphone built into the recorder and how do you get it to work


If your recorder has a microphone-in jack on it you can plug a mic into it directly and that will be recorded as the signal to whatever you're recording to. Your local Radio Shack will carry the plug converters you'll need if your microphone plug is either too large or too small for your mic-in jack.
Good luck! William

I have TX-SR503 onkyo receiver. I want to connect a microphone to it so that I can do a karaoke. The unit does not have a socket for microphone. It has a socket for phones. This socket does not appear...


The reason that jack doesn't work for a microphone is because it's a headphone jack. It's meant to send a signal out to headphones, and it doesn't work as an input. If the receiver doesn't have a microphone input jack (and it would be clearly labeled as such), you'll need to connect your mike through the auxiliary input. You may be able to connect with nothing more than an adapter to switch from the plug on the end of the mike cable to the RCA jacks on your receiver. The output level on some mikes may be high enough to drive the auxiliary input as-is. More likely, though, the mike will need a little boost to make it work with the receiver. The receiver needs a "line-level" input, which is higher than the output of most good-quality mikes. To get the mike up to line level you'll need a microphone preamp. There are many types from many sources, at a wide range of prices. Here's one I have used as an example.

You might also want to look for a small mixer like this. The mixer would let you combine your mike and music source into a single line-level output you could run to the receiver, and use the receiver just for the amplifier function.

My internal microphone doesn't work


If you are refering to the internal microphone on your computer then try this. Open up your windows sound recorder from Start - Program - Accesories - Entertainment. Hit the record button and talk or yell something if you would like. You should see recorded sound waves in the middle of your sound recorder. If you do not see the recorded waves this might mean that your microphone is turned off. To turn it on just Double click on the little speaker icon on your taskbar at the bottom right of your screen. The volume control window will open. Click on options then properties. Next check the small round recording button. Now make sure the microphone box is checked then click ok. Now a window will open that will show your microphone recording level. Move the slider up about half way and make sure to check the small "Select" box near the bottom of the slider. Open up sound recorder and try to record again. If this does not work your internal microphone may not be working or your computer may not have come with a built in microphone.There are some very cheap external mics on the market that sound very good. If you are doing any serius recording you may want to invest in a USB microphone. The USB mic should come with it's own software and setup should be pretty simple. I hope I have been helpful.

I am using my mic and it dosent work. IT says it is working but its not. IT dosent record any sound


Not sure what kind of microphone you're using but if it is plugged into a receiver (which is the heading you have your question under) it must be powered with either batteries or a preamp.

The receiver input jack does not provide the power required for the microphone to record sound. It will show something is connected, but nothing will record. Inexpensive microphone preamps and powered microphones can be found at any major electronics store.
