Ubuntu :: Can't Get Internal Microphone To Work

Jan 26, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Internal Microphone On IMac 20 8,1 Doesn't Work

Feb 21, 2011

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.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Internal Microphone Doesn't Work ?

My laptop's internal microphone doesn't work. I ran alsa-info.sh to collect data about my configuration.


Since the full info dump was a little bit too big to post here, I put the file in its entirety on Pastebin. I also noticed that KMix doesn't display any inputs/outputs...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Internal Microphone Doesn't Work In Cheese And Skype / Why Is So?

Jan 21, 2010

I am using UNR 9.10

Sound recording from build-in mic was fine in skype and cheese after i installed UNR in my Acer Aspire One 110L in early December last year.

But somehow, i just realized that my sound recording was not functioning when i use skype this morning.

(i don't know since when this problem occur as i never use skype and cheese in past few weeks and i did update a few time from synaptic and install ubuntu-boot kernel)

just now i remove ubuntu-boot and reinstall the 2.6.31-17-generic kernel and run

sudo dpkg-reconfigure pulseaudio

but skype and cheese still does not record from build in microphone but only record from external microphone.

One weird thing is Sound recorder do record from both the build-in mic and external mic.

i tried "parec -r test.wav" and "parec -p test.wav" and it also record from both mic.

Anyone know how to configure my netbook so that the internal mic work on skype?

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 / Apple :: MacBook2,1, Internal Microphone Does Not Show-up?

Oct 16, 2010

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:

Ubuntu Installation :: HP Pavilion DM4 Internal Microphone Not Working?

Oct 25, 2010

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.

Apr 21, 2010

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.

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

Apr 2, 2011

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:
sudo aplay -l

Debian Hardware :: Lenovo B40-70 Internal Microphone Is Not Audible

Feb 10, 2016

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 ?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sony Vaio VPCZ128 Internal Microphone Not Working

Nov 23, 2010

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.

SUSE :: Lenovo G560: Internal Microphone Stopped Working?

Sep 30, 2010

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?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Easynote TJ61 - Microphone - Internal And External - Not Working In All Applications

Feb 27, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Get Microphone To Work In 9.10

Feb 23, 2010

I can not get my microphone to work in Ubuntu 9.10. It works fine on my windows 7 installation. I am using a Creative X-Fi Titanium sound card and everything works other than the mic. Instead of recording from the microphone, it simply plays the speaker output through the microphone to other people.

Ubuntu :: How To Get The Microphone To Work - 11.04

May 8, 2011

First click on the speaker on the right hand corner->sound preference->input. Make sure that a input device is selected, the input volume is not muted, or isnt set too low.

Open terminal and enter: alsamixer

press F5 to view all controls bars tab allows you to select a specific bar (the description will turn red)the arrow keys up and down allows you to increase or decrease the property selected

Capture, Capture 1, Input Source, Rear Mic and Rear Mic Boost was what allowed my microphone to work.

Initially I turned everything up until I saw a red square on each bar. Then I played with the Input Source and realize that by setting the first Input Source to Rear Mic it made my microphone work. Then I played with the volumes to reduce the background noise.

I used the 'sound recorder' to test my microphone. I tried skype and the microphone also worked.

Ubuntu :: Can't Get The Microphone To Work

Aug 19, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) with Skype, and I can't get the microphone to work. I can hear them, but they can't hear me. I tried the same headset with my Windows system, and it works fine, so the headset is OK.

I looked at "Sound Preferences", and noticed that when I click on the "Input" tab, the area where you can adjust the volume is set at the minimum, and grayed out, so I can't adjust it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Get Microphone To Work On 10.04

May 3, 2010

I can't seem to get my microphone to work on Ubuntu 10.04. I have a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE PCI sound card. [URL]... Sound card is recognized by System/Preferences/Sound/Hardware as CA0106 Sound Blaster 1 Output / 1 Input Analog Stereo Duplex And sound output works 100% perfectly. I Google'd for hours and did not see anything to fix my microphone. My computer has front headphone and microphone ports and the front headphone port works fine but microphone does not. Also I tried plugging microphone into all the ports on the back into sound card but none worked. Also, I ran alsamixer from terminal and maxed out all volume settings. I wish to get the microphone working so I can play Counter Strike Source with Wine. I am willing to buy another sound card if someone can point out a replacement.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Get Microphone To Work?

I have a Dell Dimension 9200 (DXP061) with a Create eXtreme Music card. The box has a front mic jack and I can't get that to work.In the "Sound Preferences", it shows two possible hardware sources: "Internal Audio" and "SB X-fi".In "Input" I have multiple choices for "Connector" when "Internal Audio analog stereo is selected" ("Microphone 1/Line-In" etc) and for "SB X-Fi Analog Mono" there are none.I have tried every combination in there, plus every combination I can think of in "alsamixer" and the microphone still does not work (I know the microphone itself is OK).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Microphone Doesn't Work At All?

Mar 9, 2010

It's been almost two months since this problem started. I'm running 9.10, Karmic Koala, with all updates. I was hoping one of the updates would just fix this problem.

The microphone does not appear to work at all. It seems to exist because I have a choice for "Internal Audio Analog Stereo" under "sound preferences," but I don't know how else to check whether this is true. Sound Recorder does not record anything and Skype does not capture any sound from me.

how to run commands in the terminal and I consider myself an intermediate user, I just don't know anything about sound.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Get Microphone To Work Normally Again / Resolve This?

Nov 3, 2010

I'm having some pulseaudio weirdness. Up until this evening, my built-in microphone worked fine with skype, google voice, etc.Tonight while talking on google voice, I made the mistake of trying to adjust the microphone volume at the same time.Suddenly the volume cut down to a tiny, tinny little sound.Now I can't get the microphone to work normally again. Some weird facts:

1) the built-in microphone still works fine in audacity and gnome-sound-recorder
2) the built-in microphone still works in Windows
3) the built-in microphone shows sound input in the pulseaudio applet->Volume Meter [code]....

Ubuntu :: Microphone Doesn't Work - Can't Unmute ?

Nov 14, 2010

I have a microphone perfectly working on windows but I'm not able to use it on Ubuntu 10.10 64bit. I can't either record a sound or use skype.

I've installed Gnome-Alsa and unmuted every slider I could unmute on Alsa. But if I go on "Sound Preferences, Input, Choose a device for sound input" there's nothing I can choose. And the "input volume" is gray and so the "mute" check-box.

I thought that it was a driver problem so I went to Asus website to download Audio driver for my mother board (Asus Rampage II Gene). I got a package with Alsa drivers so I think they're already in Ubuntu.

What should I try?

I can't believe that a simple microphone doesn't work in Ubuntu 10.10 with a quite new Asus motherboard. It works in windows!

Ubuntu :: Microphone Record Does Not Work - Can't Find Fix?

Dec 31, 2010

I have a Toshiba Satellite A100 I am using 10.10 I am using headphone/microphone headset this did work for me with 10.04 never a problem, I have tried to use these to fix problem - audacity/sound recorder/pulse audio volume control/pulse audio device chooser/ (the more I use 10.10 the more I love it its been a learning curve I am sure this is just another one of them for me..)

Re: Microphone not working after upgrade to Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick My hardware profile is Duplex. When I click on the input tab the signal measuring bar is always staying lit on the first section and does not move further. This means that the mic is not capturing sound. In 10.04.1 there was a dropdown menu in the input tab from which I could choose the default microphone and thus choose an option that works. In 10.10 there is no such thing. I kind of fixed it by adding "options snd-hda-intel model=3stack" in alsa-base.conf. Now I have the dropdown menu and my microphone works for now. The problem is that I did not have to do this in 10.04.1 ... options snd-hda-intel model=3stack sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf for mine it was mic 1 and it worked

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Get Microphone To Work In Any Application

Jan 22, 2011

I can't get the microphone to work in any application (Sound Recorder, Audacity, Skype, etc.) It's been this way for a while and didn't bother me, but now I need to use Skype for work so I desperately need to fix this over the weekend. I checked the Comprehensive Sound Guide, but couldn't find an answer there. As far as I know, my ALSA is up to date (I had to update it to get the sound working at all).On a MSI Wind Desktop with 10.04, if that makes a difference.
