Headphones + microphone does not when plugged into the headphone jack on Macbook pro.


I have a problem that has caused me a lot of irritation just because it seems so simple to fix, but Ive tried practically everything that I can think to do better and it has really improved.

I was skyping the other day and I took my headphones into the headphone. They have a microphone in them. When I plugged hide them in, I could hear the other person, but they could not hear me. It was the first time Id used for Skype, but still, something must happen in this brief moment of ruin.

So I did some research here and on google and I couldn't find much. The page here titled "Why slope my friend hear me on Skype" seemed to work correctly the first time, I followed his instructions, but to test it, I unplugged my helmet again. Once again, it fouling all upward. I even wrote the settings he was conducting (apple System Preferences) and Skype and when I put them in the way it was when it worked, it worked this time.

Just to be clear, I fixed it, but then to test it, I took out my helmet again and it has stopped working and even with the same settings, it will not work. It's extremely frustrating.

It will work when I plug my headphones into the audio jack, but then I can't out of my helmet, which defeats the purpose of having them.

My headset is not broken and my helmet is not broken because I can listen to music through my headphones and use my headset to call my friend on my helmet.

I feel that somehow, my helmet (which previously was transmitting my input headphone MIC perfectly) has become messed up somehow (I feel like there must be a setting or something that Im overlooking) and I just need to configure it to work at the time of entry and exit instead of having input/output divided between the helmet and the microphone port.

I hope this was clear enough. Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions that you may find useful.

I can't tell if it's a Skype problem or a problem of mac, but Im asking here just see what I can learn.

Thanks in advance

Too bad. I forgot the first rule to set anything on the computer: turn off and on. It works, but it seems absurd that something like that (what I think is something fairly common) would need to restart your computer.

  • GMAIL does not allow typing into the text box

    This seems to have occurred shortly after the upgrade to 22 FF... but I don't think it's directly related to the upgrade

    Everyone knows a problem using the interface of GMAIL and Firefox 22 when you try to type a new e-mail... send or answer?

    When I try to answer / transfer... or create a new email... the box opens... and if answer or forward... I get the ellipses (...) and when you click them... I can even see the message... but when I try to type in the message box. I have nothing happening... the RET works... but it's like the rest of the keyboard is disabled

    I tried

    (1) reload the page

    (2) logging out and in GMAIL

    (3) clear cache and cookies

    (4) close and restart 22 FF

    (5) demotion at FF 21

    (6) I have tried other browsers

    Using IE - managed
    Using Chrome - managed
    Using Safari - managed
    Using Opera - managed

    I noticed one thing... When Gmail loads... It crashes (more than usual) and then a bar FF popup comes up with the message

    I searched on this... and it seems to be related to setting FF to use Gmail as a customer MAILTO... I use Thuderbird... so I did not want to use Gmail as my client MAILTO...

  • Wired connection slows down when plugged into the laptop


    I have a wired connection to my laptop and you have a problem a week that my internet is slow. So I called my ISP and told them on this subject. My ISP says my connection is under FUP (Fair Use Policy - down internet speed when you reach the maximum bandwidth provided by your ISP in the months. - ONLY in the PHILIPPINES that is really annoying and disturbing) anyway, so I tried to stop using my wired connection to date and use the Wi - Fi connection. It went well, I have a fast connection again. And then I tried to connect again to a wired connection that is different from my own wired connection, it is connected to a PC and have a good connection speed. So I connect it to my laptop and expect that it has good connection to check if there are updates in my system. Surprisingly, the internet connection on my laptop was really very slow. I tried to check internet speed using Speedtest and 0.17 to 0.20 Mbps operation. So I removed again and again on the PC. When I checked the speed of connection on the PC, it gives me more than 3 Mbps.

    That's what I've done so far:

    Update drivers / windows

    Active mac address / changed

    Frushed DNS

    and finally tried to reformat and it seems not working do not and have the same problem.

    I have LENOVO IdeaPad S400 Touch with Windows 8 on it.

    What seems to be the problem?

    Thank you!

    Hi Raymel,

    Yes, it's maybe a problem with the network card. I suggest you to contact the manufacturer of the laptop to get help on this issue.

    Please let us know if you have more queries on Windows.

  • Motion/opacity (yet) does not when you use the time remapping effect

    OK: Here's my meat. This bug has been around for CS3 and CS4. I was hoping this would be fixed with the arrival of CS5, but apparently it still has not been resolved.

    If you use the time remapping effect in the body, you can not use the other features of keyframing, such as movement or opacity. If you do, the video simply disappears. Rendering will not help either. The only way to get the opacity of the function is to overlay a video black bar on the top of the element (or any other cache of color if you like fantasy) and have the opacity on this clip in reverse work. How to get movement in these clips remapped time to work is still somewhat a mystery to me...

    Has anyone found this tedious, boring/irritating?

    So, when can dear Adobe, we expect a fix for this? If all goes well before CS6.

    Thank you very much.


    Yes, it's a real annoying bug.
    Simple around - after work you time-remapping your clips, nest (control-click on the clip and select 'nest'), then you can change the opacity normally.

  • How can I solve very slow scrolling with the mouse when you press the command key? (MacBook Pro, Lion, no problem when using trackpad, no problem with other web browsers, other mice have the same problem)

    Scrolling speed is fine, but when you press the command key and then it becomes very slow.

    He does it with a mouse, but not with the trackpad.
    It does when the modules are disabled.
    No problem on Safari or Chrome.
    No problem on PC.

    I think it all started when I went form a MacBook with Snow Leopard on a MacBook Pro with Lion.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!
