Microphone not being recognized

I was trying to get in-game chat to work but my microphone is not being recognized. after following all tech instructions and seeing if drivers needed to be updated (they were fine), i am still having no luck. the microphone plugs into the back (non-usb type) and requires no software. any ideas are much appreciated!

    yes, i was sure to check, double-check, then triple-check that it was plugged in correctly and the microphone itself is not set to "mute". i am legendary for making those types of mistakes.... :)

    there is a game "repair" function, which i did run, but everything came up clean. i ran through every possible in-game problem with blizz tech support, but everything was set up properly. tech support had me navigate to my sound recorder (windows menu, all programs-accessories-entertainment-sound recorder) and they had me attempt to make a short recording using the microphone. it failed to make a recording there, which apparently indicates that my computer is not recognizing that my microphone even exists.i'm pretty comfortable with that assessment...i just need to figure out *what* is going wrong.

    yes, it is plugged into the appropriate hole, and just for giggles i did switch it around to make sure nothing was backwards. didn't work that way either (which is good i guess!)

Ricketfish srs wow - mic is not working


  • Press the PWR button on the wireless receiver to turn the unit on. The headset has a sleep/standby mode feature to preserve battery life. The unit goes into sleep mode if there's no input for 3 minutes.
  • Twist the tip of the microphone so the sound holes face your mouth.
  • Position the microphone several inches away from your mouth so it does not overload when you speak. Try to balance the microphone position and the volume setting for optimum voice level.
  • Press the ALL MUTE button (the Rocketfish logo) on the left side of the headset once to make sure that the All Mute function is not activated. The LED on the wireless receiver will light red when All Mute is activated.
  • Make sure that the volume on the wireless receiver is not turned down or muted. The LED on the wireless receiver will light orange when Mute is activated.
  • Rotate the CHAT VOLUME dial on the wireless receiver to control the chat volume.
  • Make sure the USB cable is connected to both the wireless transmitter and your device.
  • Make sure that all connections are correct and secure. Sometimes a cable may appear to be connected but it may not be pressed in all the way.
  • Make sure that the wireless receiver batteries are installed correctly. See Question 19.
  • Make sure that the wireless receiver batteries do not need replacing.
  • Make sure that the microphone isn't plugged into the Line In port (or vice versa).
  • Make sure the headphone jack is pushed all the way into the port.
  • If you're using an Xbox 360
    • Make sure the wireless receiver is connected to the Xbox 360 controller using the supplied chat cable. On the wireless receiver, press firmly, so no part of the silver jack is showing. This tight connection helps to make sure the cable does not fall out during gaming.
    • Try a different Xbox controller.
    • Try recording a message to a friend by selecting My Friends, Send a Message, then Add Voice. If you can hear yourself, the chat problem could be a game issue, a problem on the recipients end, or some other variable not related to the headset.
  • Try testing the microphone by connecting the headset to a smart phone and make a test call or record a memo. If you can hear yourself, the chat problem could be a game issue, a problem on the recipients end, or some other variable not related to the headset.

If these steps don't work, then I would advise seeking replacement.

Singstar


You cannot use them to sing youtube songs the same way. Youtube hasn''t got the required software to recognize your singing and to recognize the required. If you wish to try the mics on other software then singstar you could try http://ultrastardx.sourceforge.net/ on your pc or other sing games on the ps3 as rockband.

When playing online on my xbox 360, my tritton 180 universal headset works, but ppl can't hear me talk. Help.


Hi,

Do you have the chat cable connected?

Is the mic turned off on the inline volume controller?

Is the Chat volume turned up on the inline volume controller?

Test the microphone on a PC by plugging in the USB into a PC and test if it works.

If it doesn't then you can ask for a spare microphone from TRITTON / Madcatz.

If the mic works on the PC then the problem might be with the chat cable which you can also ask from TRITTON or Madcatz.

Hope it helps...

Everything works except chat


You probably need a replacement chat-controller cable. Those are available from the Turtle Beach website (look for Replacement Parts) or from their tech support (support@turtlebeach.com).

I CAN SEE OTHER PERSON AND THEY CAN SEE ME BUT CANT HEAR ME BUT I CAN HEAR THEM .WHAT HAVE I DONE WRONG


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,

Computer wont recognize the microphone on the turtle beach x4


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.
