Fedora Hardware :: Internal Microphone Not Working?
Jan 3, 2011
trying to use the internal mic for skype, with no such luck. its an HP Pavilion dv-XXXX (<<i want to say 5000 or 6000, but it isnt in front of me ATM), restarting didnt help, and everything is updated (Fedora 14).
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 and everything went smooth. I was originally using Ubuntu 10.04 version installed via Wubu and decided it was time to make a true install of Ubuntu and decided to use 10.10.
I installed Skype and tried to have a phone convo, but the Microphone wasn't working. I tried to use yfrog.com to record a video from my webcam and the video worked fine, but no audio. I also tried the pre-installed sound recorder to record my voice but that also failed.
I'm making some tests with the internal microphone and I've managed to record sounds but the results have a very low volume. I mean, I have to put the input volume to the max and I still get a pretty bad result. I've checked too the input volume in the alsamixer but no way, can't get better results.
I just installed ubuntu 10.10 about 10 days ago, an experience that has been both amazing because its really hard for me to go back to windows already, and frustrating because I'm having a little issue: my internal microphone is not working.here is some relevant info:I had alsa 1.0.23 and decided to upgrade thinking it would solve my problems so I ran the script to install 1.0.24, and for a day or two I lost my sound, without getting back my mic, and just like that the sound came back.I read a lot of posts out there, and ,ade sure I unmuted my mic in alsa soundmixer and pulseaudio.
I've got a handy new Lenovo G560 running with OpenSUSE 11.3 64-bit. After a normal out-of-the-box installation the laptop speakers failed to mute when I plugged in headphones and I was only able to regulate the sound for both the speakers and the headphones simultaneously. Then I installed a whole lot of ALSA stuff and my sound devices were recognized as "PulseAudio server (local)". Speakers muted when I plugged in headphones - a big yay.
Now, though, my microphone doesn't work any more. It worked before, I'd talked on Skype with it, but upon trying to make a call with Skype today I noticed that it didn't work any more. Sound's turned up in KMix, so everything should be okay - does anybody know how to get my microphone working again?
I have a Sony Vaio VPCZ128. It has a NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M GPU with CUDA Technology (SPEED MODE) and Intel HD Graphics (STAMINA MODE) (switchable). The Processor is an Intel Core i7-620M with 2.66 GHz and the Chipset from Intel HM57 Express chipset.
Finally I successfully installed Ubuntu 10.10 (mainly following the advice on [URL] and using his kernel). Every thing is working fine including sound (still a few minor problems with backlight and Fn F5/F6). But I still desperately try to get the internal microphone running.
Just bought a laptop Packard Bell Easynote TJ61 with an internal sound card Conexant CX20561 (Hermosa) and successfully installed Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit. Only problem was that the microphone (internal and external) was not working in all applications (soundrecorder, audacity, skype etc). Output audio (eg- Rythmbox) worked fine with ALSA and PulseAudio.
Tried a LOT of stuff, but the decisive move was to add: options snd-hda-intel position_fix=1 model=laptop to the file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and reboot.
Graphics annoyances. I'm having a few graphics problems, here's a quick screen shot: [URL]... Notice the white and red lines at the top of the screen. They seem to go away when I have another window in use over that one. But as soon as I go back to the effected window, it returns to that weird state. Also notice to the left, the terminal at the top and the trash can at the bottom. There are yellow lines on them. I figure that's not normal as well. I managed to fix the problem by simply closing the Chrome app and restarting it. But I assume the problem will arise again some time.
I also notice that a lot of words on my screen are cluttered with strange lines, especially the letters "r", "a", and "i". Here is a good screenshot: [URL]... Here is one last screenshot of the display bars where I'm uploading the pics to, notice how the output area for the URL to the pic is all jacked up: [URL]... Internal microphone. I have an HP DV7 laptop and I can't get the internal microphone to work.
Recently purchased a Lenovo B40-70 Dec 15 Make and isntalled Debian Jessie as the only operating system. Everything seems to work fine except internal microphone.
I have entries under ports of pavucontrol - Internal Microphone - Microphone (unplugged)
I changed amplification levels of left and right channels (as some suggested having right and left at same level cancel each other thus producing no audio). I've added entries such as Code: Select alloptions snd-hda-intel model=laptop to non existing alsa-base.conf in /etc/modprobe.d/. - No effect
Haven't seen Lenovo internal microphone problems offlate in forums or QA Boards, so asking it here again.
Also, I'm planning to buy a USB microphone : [URL].....
Will this work out of the box to make skype calls ?
On my white MacBook2,1 , the Internal Audio Analog Stereo device does work, and, in the "Sound Preferences", it shows up on the Output Tab. The MacBook2,1 has an internal microphone. In the "Sound Preferences", however, no device shows up on the Input Tab where it tells to "Choose a device for sound input", neither can I check or uncheck the Mute checkbox, nor can I slide the volume control bar. In sum, the internal Mic does not yet work. I need the Microphone for Skype etc.
Sound was said to work out-of-the-box already in Karmic Koala, but it didn't. Somewhere, I was then recommended to update to Lucid Lynx, which I did. On the page [URL].. it is, again, promised that the Sound will work out-of-the-box. It still doesn't. What shall I do? Boot Mac OSX, or get the Mic working? Here is what I have done sofar:
Most of Audio is not operational including the Mic, the drivers are ALSA and,PulseAudio, it seems the Pulse is sitting on top of ALSA, and blocking its function, the alasmixer , only displays one column, which is the MASTER.The rest of Speakers Mics etc are not there. I tried using SKYPE, the Mic does not function at all,
I am really struggling to get my the internal microphone on my iMac to function. I was able to get the sound working by installing ALSA Mixer and appending the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file with [options snd-hda-intel model="imac24"]. Input is not muted. That file is attached.
My gnome-volume-control recognizes an 'Internal Audio Analog Stereo' device, but it picks up no sound. Here's the chip information: Realtek ALC889A.
I just installed skype on my F12 yesterday, the webcam I am using is a logitech C200, which has built-in microphone. I got the video working fine but not the microphone. No sound can be recorded.The same microphone works fine on my Windows 7, so at least I can eliminate hardware issue.I have never used microphone on my F12 before
I have a problem with my mic....and I have no idea why. The speakers on my laptop work perfectly fine, so sound output isn't a problem, and Fedora seems to identify that I have a mic somewhere (I actually have one next to my webcam and a plug for an external mic). However, none of the two work, even though I have turned up the volume everywhere for the mic, even in alsamixer in the Terminal. How to get my mic working? My laptop is a Acer Aspire 6530.
I recently installed GUVCView to record videos via my webcam but my built-in microphone isn't working. Is there a driver for mine? The computer is an HP G60-530US, and the sound card is a Conxenant audio card and the webcam is a Chicony HP Webcam-101.
I am running F13 64 on my HP G72 Laptop. Everything seems to be working fine with the exception of my microphone. When I go into alsamixer I have to manually select my card HDA Intel G45, however it reverts back to the one named default.
I have saved the settings using "alsactl store" which does indeed lock in the volume levels but doesn't make the Intel card the default.
Kmix is of no use and the alsmixer GUI is terrible.
So my question is how do I make the HDA Intel card default?
so forgive me if this is something easy to do that I just haven't figured out yet, but I just got Skype and my mic isn't working. I've seen other threads that wanted me to install pavucontrol, but that doesn't recognise my internal mic. Another one said to unmute my mic in terminal, but when I ran the command, it didn't work. Does anyone know how to fix it?I'm using an Acer Aspire One netbook and the internal webcam works, so the hardware is working.Thanks for your time!---------- Post added at 04:40 AM ---------- Previous post was at 04:35 AM ----------
The internal microphone of my laptop Thinkpad T400 does not work after the new installation of fedora 15. I was trying to use it in SKYPE and could not get any sound recorded at all. However, when I tried arecord, sound is recorded, but is extremely low and not clear with lots of noise.The sound control seems to be different from before. Now available settings are
None Analog Stereo Input Digital Stereo Duplex (IEC958)
And the 'Input' page seems not bad because I can drag the Input volume. However, the 'Input level' is empty, or only 1 bar even I drag the 'Input volume' to maximum.Analog Stereo Output and Analog Stereo Duplex (the one I am using) are the two give me output sound. But none seem to work with my internal mic. I haven't tried an external mic, though, because I do not have one.There seems to be no more "advanced volume control" that I used in Fedora 12. Also, there seems to be no more ALSA devices or PulseAlsa devices?
'#arecord -l' list my device as
Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: CONEXANT Analog [CONEXANT Analog].
how to solve this. For example, is there a way to get those ALSA settings back (well, I do not really understand what ALSA is and how it works but it did work when I had Fedora 12)? I do have a lot of packages named 'alsa*' installed.
My Internet videos and sounds work, but when i went into call skype test, they said my microphone was not working. I also tried to test my video and that is not working as well. So I believe my microphone/webcam is not installed properly. How do I check if its installed at all? How do I test it?
my microphone is not working, I cannot get it to work, I do not think Ubuntu is recognizing my built in microphone because it just says mic, is there a way I can identify what it is recognizing as my mic in terminal?
