My webcam microphone does not work

I built in webcam on my laptop. I turned off the microphone by accident and now it says is not there at all! I tried everything but ICAN can't operate more! can someone tell me how to repair or reinstall my microphone?

Hello NekoAngel.

Try to type device manager in the start search and see if his list he should there have listed under sound, video and game controllers.  If its been disabled at the level of the device, it must have one different icon to others, and will be one of the options in the context menu to enable it.

  • Satellite L50 - A - 16 H - Webcam + microphone does not work


    I have a laptop Satellite L50 - A - 16: updating win8.1 64 bit.
    When I got this new laptop everything worked fine, but later it stopped working.
    I sent it to Toshiba for repair and ofcouse they made and works (the MB has been replaced?), but now, I noticed that my webcam and my microphone does not work. If I try to open the camera it says 'connect a camera' or on Skype, he asks the same thing.

    I read in the forums to look at the BIOS to enable, but there is no activation/deactivation button.
    I tried to search for a driver for the Webcam in the Toshiba site but I couldn't find: c
    and the microphone "working normally" but I when I try to call my friends can't hear me.

    I hope someone can help me with this problem, thank you very much :)

    You know what: best thing you can do as the ultimate test is to backup all your data and reinstall the original recovery image. By default the BIOS settings and install recovery image.
    After ding that you will have to re-buy factory and absolutely identical situation after laptop settings.
    Please test and send feedback.

    In my opinion, if the problem persists it could be hardware related issue. Maybe is cam not connected correctly.

  • Satellite L50-B-166: Webcam + microphone does not work under Linux


    I'm under Linux Slackware 14.1 with kernel 4.11 on a Satellite L50-B-166.

    Webcam and microphone are not detected by the system, and I can't find the firmware and the module for them.

    Can someone help me?


    I get the Webcam work properly in Fedora 22 core 4.0.6 (Incidentally, kernel 4.11 does not yet exist, so what kernel do you use )
    I suggest therefore that you check the software for the Webcam settings is not simply disabled:

    F2 at the STATION
    Go to advanced > system configuration
    Make sure the Webcam is turned on.

  • Satellite A300-1BZ - microphone does not work - need driver

    My microphone does not work & I can't find what kind it is to locate the pilot, can assits anybosy please?


    The internal MIC is part of the webcam.
    Next to the sound driver, you will need to install the Chicony webcam software.

    You could test the microphone using the webcam software there is an option that allows you to record the audio stream

  • Internal microphone does not work in Satellite C850-B377

    The microphone does not work now. It worked very well but immediately stopped.
    Tried setting the sytem for a previous working restore point. But again same problem.
    Realtek is the audio driver installed.

    External Mike works very well.
    Anyone can help with this problem.

    Laptop bought the UNITED Arab Emirates and now in India and its less than 1 year.

    Can I get the service locally in India.


    The internal MIC is part of the webcam module.
    What happens if you start the webcam, try saving and small clip? The sound recording is this too?

    Usually, you can change the recording devices in Control Panel-> sound-> recording tab
    Here, you can check what devices are available. Right click and check if hidden and disabled devices can be demonstrated.

    By the way: I had some problems with the playback of the sound after installing the Realtek audio driver. I uninstalled the Realtek audio driver and Device Manager remove the audio display Intel (in games, field audio video controller). In the peripheral zone system you could remove the controller high definition audio.
    Again, restart the laptop.

    Usually, removing devices should be recognized automatically. Then go again to the dashboard-> sound-> recording tab and check if other devices outside external microphone are available.

  • Satellite L750D - Microphone does not work

    My microphone does not work, it says not connected.
    But it is an internal microphone, I already installed Conexant Audio Smart, latest driver, does not.
    What can I do?

    My microphone has disappeared when I switch to windows 8.
    But I'm in windows 7 once again, (64-BIT)

    Thank you

    Toshiba Satellite L750D

    > But I'm in windows 7 once again, (64-BIT)
    This means that you have installed Win7 using original recovery image?
    If you have installed the own version of Win7 have you installed the software of webcam too?

  • Re: Satellite Pro L500-1PU - internal microphone does not work

    I have a Toshiba L500-1PU, running on 32 bit Windows 7,
    The webcam works perfectly, but the internal microphone does not work correctly.

    I had an external microphone, so I had not noticed this problem when I am on Skype, but I recently discovered that when using the webcam of the person at the other end can hear weak my computer noises when I play music or watch a video clip.

    How can I fix this and get my microphone working properly I can control the volume and actually get a full service my laptop otherwise decent?

    Thank you


    Perhaps this Toshiba FAQ might help you:

    + Hissing on the Satellite L500 +.

    It s are the parameters.
    This problem occurs if the volume of the microphone in the speakers properties is enabled.
    After you turn off this point the issue with Larsen is no longer in effect.

    I hope this helps!

  • Satellite A210 (PSAEG) - Microphone does not work on Windows 7 64 bit

    Hello, the microphone does not work on windows 7 64-bit, the driver that I use is 64-bit Windows Vsta. The volume is implemented maximum and so is the amplification but no way to make it work with the software assistant camera Skype or toshiba.
    Can someone help me?

    Thank you

    Hi Largo09,

    Usually, you need to install the webcam driver and sound to get the microphone working. The microphone is a part of webcam

    As you wrote, Satellite A210 is not Windows 7 64 bit supported, so the only option you have the Vista 64 bit drivers

    In my opinion, you should check if the Microphone is turned on in Windows audio settings. There you can also activate the Microphone Amplifier, which can increase the volume of the microphone.

  • Satellite L300-1 has 3 - Microphone does not work with Windows 7

    Hello, I have a problem with the microphone on my laptop.

    MIC comes with chicony web cam and Windows 7 camera works fine but the microphone does not work.
    Does anyone have the solution to this problem?

    Micro Vista works fine but I wanted to try Windows 7 on the laptop and everything works great except microphone.

    Best wishes in advance.


    I think that the reason why Windows 7 is only RC and not a final version that is on the market. I think you should wait until Windows 7's official published.

    However, you have installed the driver for the webcam and soundcard? You can try using the Vista drivers. It should also work on Windows 7.

  • Windows XP and built-in microphone does not work

    I had reviewed similar topics, but I couldn't find a clear solution.

    My laptop is XP and has a built-in microphone.  I tried Skype and the microphone does not work.  It was not used in the past2 or 3 years, but it has been running at the same time.  Use Audacity for school work.  Can't do the part of speech recognition because I'm working with Office 2007 as it says XP and Office 2007 do not work.

    Any ideas to fix or am I destined for an external mic?  or would that even work?


    With respect to the built-in microphone, you may need to reinstall the audio drivers from the manufacturers Web site.

    As far as the webcam goes, as long as its compatible I guess it will work fine.

    Malware or virus infections can have harmful effects on a computer, even if they have been deleted. The only sure way to never remove infections from virus or malware is to reinstall Windows.

    Hello Bllacke,

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support.

    I see from your post, some applications have a problem to access your Microphone. I know how it is important to ensure that your applications have access to the Microphone and can use this feature. I have a few things I want to try.

    First, tap Settings on your iPhone and then scroll to the last section that lists your apps. Select the applications that use the microphone and make sure that the Microphone is activated (green).

    Then, follow the steps in the article below to close these applications:

    Force a nearby application on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

    Then, test the microphone in these applications again and see if it works.

    Best regards.

  • iPhone 5 s microphone does not work during phone call

    Hello! My iphone 5s works really well, sensors, speaker, camera, all right. Similarly, the microphone works really well when I make a call using 'whassapp', 'line', etc and I can record video, talking to Siri, using voice memo and once more my microphone works really well. BUT! When I make call and receive phone call my microphone does not work, they do not hear my voice at all. What will happen with my microphone when you use the cell phone call? HELP ME PLEASE!

    Try resetting your device. This will not erase your data stored on that device.

    • Press and hold the sleep/wake button
    • Press and hold the Home button
    • Press and hold both buttons until the display turns off and on again with the Apple logo on the subject.

    Alternatively, you can go to settings - general - reset - Reset all settings

    If that doesn't work, restore your device to factory settings. Please note that this will delete the data on your device.

    Take a look this Apple Support article: use iTunes to restore the iPhone, iPad or iPod to factory settings - Apple Support.

    As a final step, try recovery mode. Turn off your unit, then plug it to your computer with the hold home button. Hold down Home button until you see the logo of iTunes on the screen of your device. After that on your computer, you should see the iTunes window saying that your device needs to be restored to factory settings. Click Restore.

Now, I've discovered that my microphone does not work. There is no problem in device, or with the driver manager. I hear that crackling noise when I try to enter any other micro device.

    How did you test the mic feature? With the help of tool tape recorder?
    > the monitor framework
    Perhaps you have made a mistake and mic is not connected correctly. Did you do it alone or it was done by the Toshiba authorized service provider?
