My problem is when I'm recording my voice and or just using my webcam I get a loud background noise, I didn't have this problem until maybe a week into having my webcam, can you please help me?


Make sure the webcam mic is set as default - especially if its a laptop which also has a mic.

Plug in the webcam

TEST SPEAKERS
Right click on speaker icon in System Tray or from Control Panel
Select "Playback Devices"
The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible
Right click on the volume graph and click "Test"
Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard

SET DEFAULT & TEST MIC
Click "Recording" tab.
Right click on the volume graph and select 'Show disabled devices' and 'Show disconnected devices'
To set required (webcam) mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties"
In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click 'OK'
Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later)
Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays

Restart computer

Your mic may also be picking up sound from your own speakers. To overcome this problem use a set of headphones.

Typical audio set up

If you have an earlier OS, you may have to access your hardware from the Control Panel.

QuickCam mic doesn't work


I read another post that said to go to Logitech itself for up-dates. This I did......downloaded all new drivers, etc. (the disc that comes with the cam must be out of date !). Then when that was done, I went back on Skype and where you do a 'voice test' I was able to this time around to "choose" my webcam - this was not coming up before at all. So in doing that it activated the mic on the webcam and all was OK. We seniors are supposed to be savvy with the forever changing world of electronic devices today! (LOL)

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.

Sound problems


You must go into the Tools Option where you sign in on MSN Messenger and change the microphone/speaker settings there. It is at the top of the window where you can see your status and all your contacts listed...the window that comes up upon "Sign In".

These override any settings you may have changed in the control panel.

Yes...it works with Windows Vista.

Sound problems


Hi mack79, I would assume that you are using Yahoo Messenger on a Windows machine. By "I've done the mic set-up ...works fine there", again I would assume that you have tried the YM Call Setup Assistant and you have a green light on that. By "...connected ...doesn't...pick... voices.", perhaps you simply have to activate handsfree. If my basis for assumptions are off, pls post back with details: 1. laptop or desktop; 2. are you using an external keyboard with Audio in/out; 3. is the Logitech built-in mic the only mic attached to your PC; and 4. are you using headset or external speakers? Good luck and kind regards.
