    Fix for Mac Microphone problem?

    From recent past my Mac Microphone is not working at all. I tried changing the system settings and calibrated in speech and so but it just works fine with the Audio and when I try to use garageband or photo booth application the microphone doesn’t picks the sound at all. What is the issue? Can you please tell me some fix for this problem?

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.

    Firstly check your sound settings are changed are correct. Try to press
    the option 'reset' so that if any options are changed they be re-changed
    normally.

    If there is no problem in the settings then check that any sound drivers
    may be corrupted or deleted. So try to re-install or update the sound
    drivers so that you may fix your problem.

    Even if it don't work it may be the problem of your microphone. So it
    is better to check that they are working or not.

    You can check them by connecting them to another Mac. If it works
    there then definitely it may be the problem of the plug of your Mac in
    which you are inserting the Microphone.

    I hope it will help you.

    Have a nice day........

    hi
    1.First check that if the microphone is switched on or not.
    2.If it is in on condition then check that if there is any loose connection in the microphone or not.
    3.If it is found OK then check that if the driver is working properly or not.
    4.If it is working properly then the microphone is damaged replace the hardware.

    ....THANK YOU....

    Dear Friend..

    I think this problem is related to your system hardware and drivers.
    It is very common problem in Mac Device which can be sort easily.

    First you check that whether your Mac Sound drivers required any update or not.
    If yes, then update the drivers. If the problem still not solved then uninstall the previous drivers and download the latest one.
    This is definitely sort the issue and if the problem still persist, then contact with your Customer Service Center.

    thank you,.,,

    Dear Friend...

    It might be a problem related to your outdated drivers and software's.
    I suggest you to either download the updates for the sound drivers and if you don't get the update, you need to uninstall the old drivers and download the latest version.
    Here I am giving you the link for downloading the latest drivers for Mac,
    Here we go:-

    1. USB Audio Driver V1.0.4 for Mac
    http://download.yamaha.com/file/49193

    2. Apple Audio Volume Installer
    http://dw.com.com/redir?edId=3&siteI...16c57be35a0270

    Paste the whole URL and download these drivers.

    Hope it works for you
    Thank you...

    The microphone place might have some dust so that your voice could not reach to their.
    If this is OK then i think there is some internal damage in your Mic.
    you can repair your Mic at any service center if there is an error in that.

    Guest

    You need to update your sound driver because these are not supported with your Mac.
    You can install or update these drivers from a newly purchased Drivers CD.
    Once you install these drivers, you can update from the website later.
