Ubuntu Multimedia :: Internal Mic Not Working?

Jan 11, 2010

I have a Gateway NV52 with an internal microphone and internal webcam. On Windows, both work fine, but on Ubuntu I can only get the webcam to work. I never used one on Ubuntu (using Karmic Koala 64 bit) before, so I may be overlooking something.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Internal Laptop Mic Not Working In 10.04?

May 24, 2010

I have been going crazy with this maybe someone can help me out. I realized that in 10.04 my internal mic on my Asus G51VX does not work.

I have already upgraded my ALSA Drivers using the latest 1.0.23, and in alsamixer it shows the iMic and Capture devices correctly, however in sound recorder and in Skype I get nothing but a low hissing sound. I believe this is a pulse audio problem and not ALSA since I didn't have a problem in Kubuntu 9.04 using ALSA which I had previously to this.

In sound config pulseaudio shows that there is only one input and one output device which I figure should read 2 input devices since there is also a mic jack on the laptop. Either way it is really annoying not to have use of the Mic.

Simple mixer control 'i-Mic',0
Capabilities: pvolume pswitch penum
Playback channels: Front Left - Front Right
Limits: Playback 0 - 31
Front Left: Playback 31 [100%] [12.00dB] [off]
Front Right: Playback 31 [100%] [12.00dB] [off]

When I turn the i-Mic on I can hear the echo of myself coming out the internal speakers but it still won't record anything even with the Capture control on and at full volume.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Gateway Internal Mic Not Working

Feb 12, 2011

I've got a Gateway CX2724. The sound works perfectly out of the speakers and headphones, but I can't get the internal mic to work for the life of me.

I asked around on other threads and tried a few modifications to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and none of these get the mic working when appended:

From the ALSA-Configuration instructions

options snd-hda-intel model=ref

Ideas taken from this thread

options snd-hda-intel probe_mask=1

options snd-hda-intel model=test enable-msi=1 probe-mask=1

This also doesn't work (modified from this thread.)

options snd-hda-intel model=ref probe_mask=1 position_fix=1

This also doesn't work (from "Extra Hints to get sound working.")

options snd-hda-intel model=laptop position_fix=1 enable=yes

When I use alsamixer to turn "mux" all the way up and have my headphones plugged into the microphone jack (don't have an external mic... ) in the front of the computer, I am able to record things but the volume is greatly muted. Perhaps the external jack is set to default for the microphone instead of using the internal mic?

I also have the output for alsa-info.sh if you want it - this was mentioned in the alsa configuration file (/usr/share/doc/alsa-base/driver/ALSA-Configuration.txt). Info about alsa-info.sh here.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Internal Microphone Not Working, HP Pavillion Dv4?

Aug 28, 2010

I have a HP Pavillion dv4 1313dx that has been running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 wonderfully, but I am getting nothing out of the microphone.

I am a VERY beginning user (All I really know how to do in terminal is copy/paste, cd, ls, and, chown) and if I can fix this easily, I'd love it.

I already know to check the sound preferences, and nothing is picked up on the microphone, but I think it's there.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Is Not Working (Both Internal Card And XFi)

Sep 25, 2010

I've spent the last couple hours trying to figure out how to get my SoundBlaster XFi card working, but somehow in the process seem to have now also broken my on-board sound which when I first installed did work. I have no idea how as I hardly touched anything.Both cards are recognized in Sound preferences, sound is not muted there nor in Alsamixer. But neither produce any sound at all now.

Searching around the forums it seems that as of now my XFi should, kind of, work out of the box, but I've had no such luck.I'd really like any advice possible on getting my XFi with headphones to work in 10.04, but if this can't be done I'd atleast like to find a way to fully reset my sound setting so my on-board will work without having to wipe this partition and reinstall - there Must be an easier solution than that.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Satellite L305D Internal Mic Not Working?

Apr 1, 2011

My Toshiba Satellite L305D is running Ubuntu 10.10. The internal microphone doesn't work - if I try to record something, I just hear some clicks. According to the terminal, my audio device is:
ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)

When I click open alsamixer, the boxes for Front Mic, Mic Boost and Beep are empty. When I go to Preferences => Sound => Hardware I get a choice of Analogue Stereo input, output and duplex - as well as off. I go for duplex. When I go to sound => input, the microphone mute box in unchecked and the single volume bar is at a maximum. There are no choices - the one choice, Internal Audio Analog Stereo, is checked. As it's only once choice, it can't be unchecked.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Check If Your Webcam Is Working ?

Jun 13, 2010

I ran across this command the other day, and found it useful for a quick check to see if your webcam is working. If you have a webcam and have mplayer and mencoder installed just open a terminal and type:


And it should open a window with you webcam running. I would think it would work with any webcam. Just for the record, I am running on a Dell Inspiron 1521 laptop with a build-in cam. You can find this in mplayer man pages, but there are 191 pages even if you send the man pages to a text file. mplayer is a very powerful program and there are many more things you can do with it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 - How To Get Logitech Webcam Working

Sep 21, 2010

Just found my old Logitech webcam again, and tried to get it to work on 10.04. Somehow this doesn't work. I tried searching the forum, but did not get an answer to my situation.

Here is what I can see:
After connecting (or rebooting), dmesg shows the following lines
uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device <unnamed> (046d:08cc)
input: UVC Camera (046d:08cc) as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb1/1-1/1-1:1.0/input/input5
usbcore: registered new interface driver uvcvideo

And that's it. No message that cam was registered to /dev/video<x>. I should add that I already have another cam (Philips) that works and is registered to /dev/video0, and I also installed a Hauppauge PVR350 card that also gets registered to various /dev/video<y> files. Why the Logitech cam won't register? I'm guessing I can't do anything until this cam has its own /dev/video<x>, right?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: External Webcam Is Not Working

Jan 17, 2011

I just recently purchased a GTMax Flexible 12 Mega Pixel High Resolution w/ 4 LED Light & Microphone USB PC Webcam - Black from amazon.com, and attempted to use it in Ubuntu 8.10, but can't get it to work. The LEDs come on when I plug it into my laptop's usb port, but no video. I've tested it with Cheese Webcam Booth, and also an external website, but it doesn't work.Of course, though, I'm not entirely sure its really the webcam, since Cheese Webcam Booth seems to be turning on my built-in laptop webcam which might be interfering with it, and also the tokbox widget in the website doesn't completely load anyway in ubuntu, webcam or no, so I'm thinking that maybe its only Cheese and tokbox which are not working.

My OS is Ubuntu 8.10 64 bit. Cheese Webcam Booth also does not work with my interal cam, though it turns it on, and I've confirmed it (i.e. cheese + internal webcam) does work in my ubuntu 9.10 32 bit which is installed in a multiboot on the same computer.

I would like to get these problems resolved, ASAP, as I need to have my webcam (at least one of them, preferably both) working in ubuntu 8.10, for that's the OS I use the most often.I will note that my laptop is a Dell Studio 1535, and since I've installed Ubuntu 8.10 on it, I've had a number of other hardware issues with it on ubuntu, but I've been able to get most of them resolved a long time ago, but the webcam thing is one that I haven't got to work since I first installed ubuntu (which was God knows how long ago).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Webcam SN9C103 Not Working?

Feb 10, 2011

My usb webcam (SN9C103 chipset) seems to be "detected" properly in latest Ubuntu 10.10 but it doesn't actually work at all

For example I don't see it as an option in IM applications.

Here's the output of lsusb:

lab@lab-linux:~$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0c45:60af Microdia VideoCAM Look

I then installed a virtual machine of WinXP (w/ VMware player) inside of Ubuntu to make it work but whenever I "connect" this USB device to the virtual machine, Ubuntu hangs, which is worst

I suspect that it has to do with the fact that it's still not recognized properly in Ubuntu at first...

I need to load a driver for this webcam to work but which one? And how would I do that? modprobing?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HP Pavilion DV5000 Internal Speakers Not Working?

Mar 20, 2010

yesterday i was on videos, and i had headphones plugged into the headphone socket on my laptop.i unplugged them a few times because they were needed elsewhere, but on the last time i unplugged them, the sound didn't return to the internal speakers. i plugged the headphones back in, and there was sound out of the headphones, but not speakers. i rebooted the laptop, still to find sound only out of the headphones. i then was very bad, and booted into wingdoze, and still sound only out of the headphones.
i've tried doing the muting channels in alsa-mixer as well. muting didn't work. i've also tried cleaning the headphone socket with ispopropyl alcohol too. and removing the bios battery and battery and ac adaptor... just incase it will do a reset of some description. no. still nothing.


edit: the "mute" media button light appears to be lit, however pressing it only feeds a software into the computer, and doesn't turn the light off. i'll try playing around a bit more. edit: i just discovered that if you hold down the m key on alsamixer to mute/unmute the "external amplifier" channel, the light flashes! this is beginning to look promising. edit: if i unmute the external amplifier before i log out, it stays unmuted until i log back in again. what can i do to stop it from muting as soon as i log back in again?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Internal Microphone Not Working For HDA Intel ALC269?

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 ran this:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Webcam Stopped Working Properly In 10.04?

Jul 2, 2010

I'm using the 10.04 Netbook Edition on an ASUS EeePC 1005HA. Earlier, I had 9.10 Netbook Remix installed. Under 9.10NR, the webcam worked wonderfully in Cheese. Once I upgraded to 10.04NE, the webcam became sluggish to the point where it is now unusable. In video mode it captures about 1 frame per five seconds. Under 9.10NR, it regularly captured 60 fps.

Did the driver package for webcams change significantly between 9.10 and 10.04? I can't think of anything else that would cause this issue due to an OS upgrade.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Kodak S100 Webcam Not Working In 10.04?

Sep 20, 2010

ubuntu and fairly inexperienced in getting things to work. I recently bought a Kodak s100 webcam. I can get a few frames on cheese, skype, or guvcview. After that, the video feed goes to black screen. I have tried a few things I found in the forum, but have not been able to find a fix yet. Does anyone have any idea why this isn't working? Also, the webcam has a built-in microphone which I'm having trouble getting programs to recognize, such as skype.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Webcam Not Working (Dell SP2208WFP)

I just installed Ubuntu on a partition on my Dell Studio desktop and my webcam is not working. My monitor model is SP2208WFP (webcam is built into monitor). The lsusb command gives:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Integrated Webcam Recognized But Not Working With 10.10?

Apr 16, 2011

I recently rebooted my computer, switching from Vista to Ubuntu 10.10, 32 bit. I've had troubles with my webcam ever since. I've tried every single suggestion from the Ubuntu Forums and nothing works, and I am now quite desperate..

I'm installed Cheese but nothing else than a green dotted screen appears, I've also tried gucview which tells me that my webcam is recognized under the name of USB 2.0 Camera.

When I enter lsusb in the terminal, here is what appears:

natacha@natacha-EasyNote-MX36:~$ lsusb
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub


The webcam doesn't work with any program, but since it does partially work with Cheese, I would think that I either have to install an additional driver or that my camera is not compatible with Ubuntu, which would really suck.

The closest similar case I've found on the net was this one : [URL] . Apparently it's about a Bug 16575 but the problem doesn't seem to have been resolved either.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 11.04 - Acer Crystal Eye Webcam Not Working

May 9, 2011

OS: Linux Ubuntu 11.04
Machine: Acer Inspire 4730z
My webcam isn't working and I've done everything I could think of. I installed the v4l drivers and they installed perfectly and still it doesn't work.

psych@ubuntu:~$ lsusb

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 064e:a103 Suyin Corp .....

If you notice in the terminal output to the lsmod command, v4l2_compat_ioctl32 is what I assume to be my camera, its being used by videodev and videodev is being used by uvcvideo but uvcvideo, the driver I need to use is being use by nothing.
