My microphone just stopped working, what can i do? Ok hi. i play alot of counter strike and stuff so use ventrilo alot. Last night my mic was working fine. this morning i turned my computer on and while it was loading up i unplugged my headset ( mic on the headset) and mic so untwist the wire. I plugeed it back in and loaded up vent and now my mic doesnt work. When i press test and try testing my microphone, i use press the key to enable speech and i talk. the only sound that comes back is the "beep" of when you press your "push-to-talk" button and some quiet fuzzes. I tested another mic on my computer as well and i get the same thing. I think i had this once before ages ago but cant remember how i fixed. Help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

My microphone is not working. What do I do? Trying to use Skype, but microphone want work


Hi ldlw65,

Please follow the below steps to set up your microphone properly :-

  1. Firstly check if your microphone's cable is in proper order, if it has been damaged, then it's that physical fault which stops microphone from working.
  2. Now if the wire or cable of microphone is OK, check if you have connected your microphone in the correct slot , in your motherboard , usually there is a sign of mic besides the microphone slot.
  3. Then check for the control panel's sound and audio devices option , by going in your control panel, if you open it and go in the audio tab you should see your recording device as enabled.
    If it's disabled then you need to install your audio driver's again.
  4. Now , if everything is ok till here , all you need to do is do a microphone check by going to sound recorder (start >programs>accessories >entertainment>sound recorder )in windows xp , in case you are using windows xp or any relevant software in the other operating system which records audio.
  5. Once you have the application like sound recorder try speaking on mic while you activate the record option , if you see that your sound is being recorded, then your mic is functioning properly, if it's not then you need to check if your mic is the current recording device.
  6. To check if your mic is the current recording device , all you need to do it double click on the volume icon on your task bar and you will have volume control box open , then you need to go to the options menu and choose properties.sajjad4help_2.gif
  7. After you choose properties you will have a radio button for recording , select it and you will find devices for recording , then make sure microphone is selected and click ok.sajjad4help_6.gif
  8. After you select ok , then you need to select microphone from the recording options to activate recording via your microphone.sajjad4help_7.gif
Now you should be able to use your microphone properly without any problems.
Your feedback would be appreciated.
Hope this helps ..)

My rode just stopped working, any ideas. It's had a very easy life just home studio work and always put away in it's bag


Possible if used for close mic singing, moisture and spit can get to the capsule, which can eventually damage the capsule. Especially if it is always put away in it's bag after usage. Check your basic stuff like...mic cable, phantom power supply, channel on the console, anything obvious.

What are the hazards a sound engineer can get from


Here is some very general info, however for more detailed info, I need more information on what your using it for. Speechs, Play, Vocals, Bands? Inside or Outside venue?

For Vocals you should have no problems with a Wireless Handheld SM58, they work over a large range, however still have a limit. Make sure the receivers are always close enough to the mics to hold a reliable connection.

Wireless Lapel Mics (Clip-on) are more troublesome, as they are generally consenser mics which are more susceptible to feedback. You also need to place them somewhere in range of the person's mouth, whist avoiding placing somewhere where you will get alot of fabric movement whist moving around, or you will hear that very loudly FOH. You also need to deal with body-packs and wires.

Leturn mics are generally easier to deal with than Lapel, however again are Condenser and more feedback prone.

I would reccomend the SM58 where possible, as it is much easier to work with, and you are more likely to get a better sound with less work.

The other day i was using my mic and it stopped working. and know i have no idea,and i went to your page and followed instructions from a post and now i can't hear anything. So the problem is that i can't...


turn up the volume first.
does it make a click noise out the speakers or show a reading on your mix etc when you switch it on.
if it doesnt then the switch could have gone,other than that i've only ever repaired 2 mics before & they both had doggie switches so i carn't really say more than that. sorry mate.

Headet and desktop microphone problem.


first check if you have the right drivers on your computer for your audio, if you have audio like mine go to realtek audio manager it should be right beside the clock, then click on the top right corner it says device advanced settings it opens another box that gives you options for recording like tie up same type of input jacks, ie. line-in or microphone,as an input device. and it has another one separate all input jacks as independent input devices you could try one of those if you have realtek audio manager theres other options to that might help and if you dont have that go to recording devices and see if your mic is working properly and if its set to default device
