Cant install microphone

I bought a MVOX Mv100 microphone. This is what the instructions say:

miniVvox MV100 Setup Instructions
(1) Connect the USB cable to the miniVox a plug the other end into the USB port of the computer. The red LED should light up indicating the device is ready to use.

(2) Run your favorite IM or Voice over IP software from your PC and enable the talk feature.

I plugged one end into my USB port and the other in my microphone. The first couple of seconds the red light was on and then it went off. What did I do wrong?

    How do I know if the hardware is detected?

  • crisisxadmin Jul 18, 2008

    I enabled the microphone, but I do not see if the hardware was detected on the bottom right. It used to said something, but then I un-plugged it and now it says nothing.

First of all check whether when you plug in the microphone to USB port the hardware is detected.
If so then see whether you have unmuted the microphone in your sound setting.
Also run voice setup in your IM's.

    You get to see that on your right hand side bottom corner. On the taskbar.

    In vista and XP whenever you plug in a new device you get alert on the same.

  • Gavendra Shah Jul 18, 2008

    Tell me what does it say when you plug in the device?

Why cant i get the microphone wqorking

Uninstall the gadget. Then follow the full installation instruction. Sometime the companion cd has to be inserted into cd drive and after some time the installation program asks to attach the hardware to pc. Some time it is other way around. Follow the installation guide.

I just bought a new gigaware earclip monoheadset with mic. the problum is i cant seem to get the mic working the sound works great but i just cant get that voice to work

Hello Mithmar hi, try setting the volume for your microphone, (i'm assuming you are using X P) to do this right click the speaker icon (or the mixer icon) on the lower right side of your screen, you will go to the volume controls section, goto options, then properties, select recording. check the microphone, then click apply/ok. On the mixer there is now the microphone slider. Test your microphone by loading the sound recorder program (start, all programs, accessories, entertainment, sound recorder, press the red button) then shout to the microphone, you should see wave patterns on the recorder, your microphone is working fine. at this point let me know your progress.

The problem is either the microphone is not connected/faulty or the wrong microphone is selected in the Skype Audio setting.
To check if the microphone is working - go to Start - All Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder and do a test recording.
If the sound is doesn't work then open Device Manager - Sound, video and game controllers and check the microphone is enabled and working. If it isn't listed or has a yellow ? against the microphone then you need to install the microphone device driver.
If the microphone is working then open Skype then click on Tools tab -then Options - Audio Settings - then in microphone setting and click on the microphone list to select your model microphone. Then Save your settings.
To test your microphone settings then go to Contact list and select Echo / Sound Test.Service and follow the instructions. If this works then your friends will be able to hear you,

Cant get any sound from mic!!!!

Go into Play control on your computer. Click on options then properties. Look at your settings for playback and recording. Check play control and your source eg. microphone. To reach this double click on the speaker icon in your toolbar or you can find it under sounds and devices in your control panel.

Cant hear recorded videos

Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud
