When i skype with my granddaughter, i can hear her, but she cant hear me


It must be with your mic or with your computer's sound settings or with your skype sound settings. First check your Microphone, you can record something using the Windows (if your o.s. is windows xp or vista, or etc..etc..) built-in Sound Recorder.

Open your computer's sound settings and make sure it's default recording device is Microphone and the volume is turned up.

Open the skype, click "Tools", then "Options" and again click" "Audio Settings" and check the mic volume, if possible uncheck the "Automatically adjust the microphone settings" and turn the slider to the right. Save the changes you've made and try again.

If the problem persists, let me know.


Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Microphone setup


It's possible that your microphone is muted.

Goto Start > All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control

If you see a slider for Microphone, make sure that it's all the way up, and ensure that "Mute" is not checked at the bottom of the slider.

If you do not see a slider for Microphone, click Options > Properties and in the windows that opens select "Recording" and make sure that there is a check box next to Microphone. You should now be able to adjust the volume of the mic, or unmute it.

You can test to see if your microphone works in Skype, by calling the Skype Test Call contact, you will be asked to record a message and repeat it back. If you hear your voice, so should your loved ones. (If you've deleted the Skype Test Call contact you can re-add it by adding "Echo123" to your contacts.

SKYPE mic of the quickcam 3500 doesnt work with skype


This webcam (E3500 Logitech) has problems with the mic.
Try to adjust microphone recording volume to less than 90%, as over 90% the mic is muted, not only in Skype, but also in other applications.

In Skype: go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings.
Uncheck "Automatically adjust microphone settings", then adjust microphone volume to less than 90% (some may need to go less than 60% to get the mic working).
