Apply a lubricant contact cleaner in the sockets(the place which you put your plugs)and insert plugs in and out many times-
right click in speaker icon and open volume control and check there is no mute mark in all faders-and faders in up position.

I got new Logitech Clearchat stereo headphones. I plugged the two pins into the pc - pink and green. When I do a skype test I hear the message from my computer speakers (settings says Realtek HD..with no...


realtech hd is your sound device. go into windows control panel and access the sound settings then navigate to voice settings click the volume button,your mic might be muted. also if you want the headphones to work plug them into the plug that your speakers are using (side-note: mics and head phones never need something installed to work as long as your sound device works and your definitely does work,only when the mic is a special interface like USB do you need to install software and/or drivers)

How do I plug my BA745 Boston speakers into a MAC desktop with one headphone outlet in the back?


I have the same speakers. It should have two plugs, one green and one pink. the pink plug is for a microphone. On the side of the speaker with the control knobs, you will find a headphone jack and a microphone jack. Unless you plan to plug a microphone into the pink microphone jack on the side of the speaker, you don't need to plug in the pink plug that goes to the PC. This is basically a microphone extension cord that runs through the speaker cord. That's all the pink plug is for. The green plug, on the other hand, is for your audio out. take the green plug and plug it into your computer's head phone outlet and you're good to go. You can use the speakers with any device that has a headphone jack. Just make sure you use the green plug, not the pink plug.

My turtle beach x1 stopped working


What happens if you try your X1 on a PC instead of on your Xbox? That's a good test of the mic... Here's how:
- Plug the X1 USB into a USB port on your PC. - Plug the X1 green plug into the green Line Out jack on your PC. - Plug the X1 pink plug into the pink Microphone jack on your PC.
Try recording the sound of your own voice on the PC, using Sound Recorder or whatever. Do you hear the sound of your voice? If so, your mic is working and the X1 chat/controller cable is probably broken. Replace the chat/controller cable.
If not, then the X1 mic is broken and you should contact Turtle Beach for service at support@turtlebeach.com.

Mic wont work, i can hear friends but they cant hear me.


Can you try using the X1 mic on your PC? Green plug to green jack, pink plug to pink jack, USB plug to USB port. Talk into the X1 mic. Can you hear your voice? If yes, then you probably have a bad chat-controller cable. If no, then your X1 mic may not be working. If that's the problem, you should contact Turtle Beach tech support for help. support@turtlebeach.com.

Everything works in my turtle beach x1 but people cant hear me speaking


Have you tried using your X1 on your PC? Plug the green plug to the green jack, pink plug to pink jack, USB plug to USB port. Speak into the mic and you should hear yourself in the headset. If you can hear yourself, then the problem is the chat-controller cable and you should get that replaced. If not, it may mean your X1 mic is broken and you should contact Turtle Beach about that --- support@turtlebeach.com.

Turtle beach x1 mic


I found this on the Turtle Beach website:
http://turtlebeach.com/support/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=607418123
This test is to find out if your "Talkback Cable" has failed or the "X1 Mic". It is for the PC only not for the Mac. If it works with the PC but not with the Xbox, then your Mic is good but you need to replace the Talkback Cable.

First, make sure the X1 mic mute switch on the amplifier is turned on. Switch it back
and forth to clear out anything that might have built up on the contacts. If that's
not the problem, then try the X1 mic with your PC to see if the level is OK.
If the X1 does not work on your PC then replacing the 'Puck' will not fix the problem.


Make sure that you do not leave the 'Puck' connected while connecting to 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)

4) In the soundcard's control software, enable the Microphone for playback.
In the Microphone > Advanced settings, enable the Microphone Boost.


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


******************************

To find out if the Xbox Controller Cable 'Puck' has failed, you may also try the 'stock'
cable that came with the Xbox. If the original Xbox cable is working, you know you have
a cable that has failed.

Since these cables have to be lightweight so that they do not "weigh you down" while
playing, caution should be exercised not to pull them or get them caught under furniture
etc.

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.

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!
