How can I fix my Dynex Microphone


Plug the USB connector into another available USB port.
• Check your computer's volume level.
• Check if your computer's volume is muted.
• Check your operating system's audio input and output settings.
• Check the headset's volume and mute settings.
• Restart computer.

If these don't resolve your issue, I would recommend pursuing replacement options.

Bought several pairs of wired eaphones fo son ash can hear his friends but they cannot hear him have phoned customer service team to solve the problem but not solved


Most likely, it isn't the wired headset that is the problem. It may be the controller. If you haven't already, try testing the headset with another controller.
Since hearing and voice are two separate functions, it may be that the controller is only able to send out sound, but not able to pick it up. Test it out with another controller, and hopefully it will work.
But may I suggest a common issue that is overlooked:
Double check the microphone is not muted. (both in the settings of your Xbox 360 AND the mute option found on the wired headset. It's by the volume.) To check this on your Xbox 360 click on the "home" button (top middle part of the controller with the Xbox logo) go to settings ---> preferences. There you will see the option to mute the microphone.
I sincerely hope Microsoft already suggested all of these things though.
Also, better double check that the Microphone isn't muted in Preferences BEFORE trying another controller because if it is muted in Preferences, (which can only be done when signed into a profile) whichever controller he uses, it will be muted to do preferences being set to any controller/headset used. So please double check that it's not the microphone that is muted to start, and then double check the headset isn't muted (on the actual headset) followed by changing controller if it still isn't working.
Hope this was of some help.

Headset works, microphone does not.


Try to look for the microphone volume in your control panel. Maybe it is just on mute.

Computer Does Not Detect Headset Microphone


Sound and Recording jacks stop working on the DV6000 series due to the ribbon cable running under the power button. when the power button is pushed it bends the flex cable and over time it breaks the connection rendering the front jacks useless you can buy a new upper button panel for about 20 dollars on ebay

Cannot get microphone to work while connected to computer.


I found this on the Turtle Beach website: ________________________________________
Let's make absolutely sure that the microphone in your headset is working correctly. If the mic is working, a replacement talkback cable should fix it. If not, then please send in your name, shipping address, the name of the store where you purchased your X1 and the date (month/day/year) of purchase.
OK, here's how to test the X1 using the Microphone input on your PC:
1) Take the pink plug from the X1 and plug it into the pink jack (Microphone input) on your PC's soundcard.
2) Take the green plug from the X1 and plug it into the green jack (Front L/R Out or Line Out) on your PC's soundcard.
3) Take the USB plug from the X1 and insert it into a USB port on the PC (not a USB hub, please).
4) In the soundcard's control software, enable the Microphone for playback. In the Microphone > Advanced settings, enable the Microphone Boost. Make sure the Microphone is not muted (Mute switch is not enabled).
5) Adjust the volume for the Microphone to about half-way up.
6) Adjust the overall playback volume to about half-way up.
7) Put on the headset. Make sure the Mute switch on the X1 amp box is not set to Mute (the LED should be green).
Now speak into the microphone. Do you hear your voice in the headphones? If so, the mic works and your X1 headphones should be OK. If you still cannot get the X1 mic to work over Xbox Live, then you need to take a closer look at Dashboard settings and other connections, or check the integrity of your X1-Xbox Controller Cable.

******************************
In order to enable the chat make sure that the Mute button in the Off position. If it is on the ON position the Mic will not work.
Red = Muted Green = UN-Muted

If you're having trouble adjusting the Mic in Windows:
WINDOWS XP:
For Windows XP, there's a nice video on YouTube that takes you through all the steps of setting up your microphone: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vissxo8furo


WINDOWS VISTA:
Please follow these instructions to configure your microphone within Windows Vista:
1. Left-click on the Start button. The Start Menu will appear.
2. Left-click on Control Panel. The Control Panel will open.
3. Left-click on the Hardware and Sound option. The Hardware and Sound window will open.
4. Left-click on the Sound option. The Sound window will open.
5. Left-click on Recording from the three tabs at the top of the Sound window. While in the Recording tab of the Sound window, you will see all options available for recording - Microphone should be one of them. (If you don’t see an option for Microphone, ensure your microphone is plugged into your computer using the jacks commonly located on either the front or back of the machine.)
6. Left-click on the Microphone option to highlight it. This will enable the Properties button toward the bottom-right of the window. Left-click on the Properties button.
7. You should see the Properties for your recording (input) devices. One of these should be Microphone.
8. Left-click on the Levels tab (or similar). Adjust the Level (Volume) and Mic Boost controls to at least half-way up. If your Mic Boost control is a simple check box, please make sure it is checked (Enabled). You should hear your microphone in your headset or speakers.
Once the levels are adjusted to your satisfaction, left-click OK and OK to save your settings. You can then close the Control Panel.
Your microphone should now be ready!
