    I am having the same sort of problem. However a little different.

    My microphone works when I am just talking, but if I play music and talk while video chatting with someone or making a video, it makes strange noises and pretty much mutes the sound.

To locate the source of your problem (with the information available):

Try your mic on a different recording device. Something simple like a tape recorder.

  • If it works, the problem lies in the your recording system.
  • If it doesn't, The mic is the problem.
Or:

Try a known working mic on your system.
  • If it works, the mic is the problem.
  • If it doesn't, the problem lies in the your recording system.
Thats about all I can give you with the info provided.
If these tests point to the mic, replace it. If they point to your recording device/system/whatever, more details will be necessary to effectively troubleshoot your problem.

Hope this helps,

Mike

I get a humming sound in the headphones as if an internal filter or motor has shorted out, I cannot hear anything other than the buzzing sound. Would a faulty plug in, transformer cause this?


I've done this a number of times. Stop plugging your headphones into the footswich jack and plug them into the headphone jack. That's the red one. It would help if the headphone jack was the one on the end, or the footswitch was in the back, but as it is, you just have to become aware of what this sounds like. Have a great day.

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 ..)

When Im done recording and replay it, there are parts that have glitches and repeat itself. What do I do? I checked everything and everything seems to be ok. Im not sure how I can fix it.


Do you mean you're hearing reverb (echo) of recording? If your recording music or vocals make sure playback speakers are off when doing so. If you leave them on, you're recording multiple times IE: ECHO

My built in mic is not working properly,when I call somebody hear me but I don't hear him!


If the other person can hear you then YOUR microphone is working fine.
The reason may be that his microphone is faulty (solution below)
Otherwise:
  1. Make sure the volume is turned up on your speakers (and if using external speakers they are plugged in / turned on) . To increase volume go to Control Panel, Sounds & Audio Devices and adjust the slider on "Device Volume" . Also click on "Loudspeaker Volume" and adjust the sliders there as necessary.
  2. Can you hear other sounds (like playing music or videos)? If yes then you need to adjust the audio settings for your calling program (skype or whatever). Launch the appropriate program Click on Tools and ' test audio properties' on the program tool-bar. Follow the instructions on the screen.
  3. Try plugging in headphones and see if you can hear better on them.

Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES


Click VOICE


In the Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate the SOUND PLAYBACK box and click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a tick (check-mark) in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Also make sure that the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here you need to SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK.


That should be it.

Friends say When i speak sounds like Static any 1 know how to change setting or find it in computer. Im using Satellite Fusion


The external microphone itself could be the culprit, or its connection to the 3.5mm port could be flaky. To test the theory do this:

1 Connect an external microphone to the computer.

2 Click Start, point to All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, then click Sound Recorder.

3 Click the Record button and speak normally into the microphone.

>>>> WIGGLE THE CONNECTION AT THE LAPTOP OR FLEX THE MIC CABLE WHILE RECORDING. Maybe even narrate what you are doing while you record your voice. "Flexing cable near mic, now near plug..." <<<<

NOTE: You can only record 60 seconds at a time.

4 When you have finished recording, click the Stop button.

5 To hear what you just recorded, click the Play button.
6 To save the file, select Save from the File menu.

>>>> If you hear crackling in the playback that correlates with your handling of the cable then bad seating or a bad cable are the problem. <<<<


Adjusting recording quality

The better the quality of the recording, the more disk space the sound file requires. Experiment to find a balance that fits your needs.

1 Open Sound Recorder, if necessary (click Start, point to All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, then click Sound Recorder).

2 In the Sound Recorder window, click Edit, then click Audio Properties.

3 In the Audio Properties window, adjust the Sound Playback quality and volume, and the Sound Recording volume.

4 Click OK.


Your new settings take effect the next time you record.

NO one can hear me, tryed changeing settings


Goto the mixer, select microphone as recording source and set the slider at about 80%, then bring up microsoft sound recorder and hit record. When you speak into the microphone you should see a voiceprint if the microphone is working correctly.

If you do not see a voiceprint, then it may be a faulty microphone.

No Sound Coming out my Microphone


i know this might sound a little obvious and maybe irrelevant to the problem, but did you press the switch on the mic? it will turn the mic on and off. make sure sound and mic are unmuted in windows volume control. if both are these didnt solve the problem, test the mic on another computer. if the mic works, maybe its not the mic that has the problem. if the mic doesnt work, then your mic may be defective or damaged in some way or other.
