Question about Apple Customized 15" MacBook Pro Laptop Computer Notebook

1 Answer

No sound is heard with calls on Skype, I get video, and i hear sounds made by the program, but no sound from the recipient of the caller. I get sound when I video chat Mac to Mac, but not Mac to Windows, although this shouldn't be a factor in whether sound is heard or not. The recipient can't hear me either for Mac to Windows calls. Help!

Ok, by the sound of it both yourself and whoever you're calling have not set up Skype quite right.
On your end, you need to:

  • Make sure you have a working microphone - try using Skype's built in 'Echo' feature (try calling 'echo123')
  • In Skype -> Preferences -> Audio, make sure that microphone is selected.
On their end, make sure they've done the same - they must have a working microphone, correctly setup with Skype in order to send you sound.
Hope that helped!

Can't hear caller on Skype


Check you settings in two places for the correct audio out settings:

1. Look up under the System Preferences menu (the Apple pull down menu) the sound icon (looks like a speaker) and click on it to open it. At the top it will show three choices, Sound Effect, Output, Input. The problem you can't hear the Skype caller is likely the Output setting is incorrect. For example, you may have Line Out selected, but you are listing on head phones. Make the device name match what you are using to make sound.
Also check to see that the output volume is not set too low. Move the slider around to increase the volume.

2. Then check your Skype setting.Under Skype>preferences, select Auto/Video. Check to see what is selected under "Speakers: and check again to see the Volume is turned up high enough to hear.

Also make sure you have a good speaker or headphone connection.

You can check to see if you can hear by calling the Skype test call number to record yourself and listen to it. Go the www.skype.com/go/help for more information.

I cannot hear my video caller when on skype


Make a call to "sound test" to confirm that your speakers are working and then have them place a call to "sound test" to confirm that their microphone is working. IF both are, restart the program on both platforms and then try making the call again.

Sony vaio vgn-NR120E has no mic specially when u r on skype i can hear the caller but my voice is not heard by him...tell me the solutionWhat's your problem?


You're on a laptop and it's talking about a sound card?

If you can hear audio or the voice from the caller then you don't need a sound card.

Yes you can purchase an external mic and it just plugs into the mic port on your system. I think that might be why the caller can't hear you. All computers do not come with a built in microphone. And if you are skyping and using a web cam, all web cams don't have a built in microphone.

Using medion md 96340 with built-in realtek hd audio sound card. in skype video calls the caller can hear very well but called person does not hear at all. skype echo test says-cannot find sound...


Hi,

Analysis- The call can gear very well - indicates that the speakers / head phones are working fine and the audio drivers are working well
The called person doesnt hear any thing - it indicates that the caller is not able to transmit sound. This can be a microphone related issue. It can also be skype settings issue.

Please answer following questions to analyze the issue better

1. has this ever worked before?
2. Have you tried using the microphone for some other application like recording some audio?
3. Have you tried audio / video calls using some other chat program like gtalk?
4. Are u using any external microphone attached to a head set or is it the laptops inbuilt microphone?

While using Skype with my Toshiba laptop and webcam the sound will all of a sudden cut out. I have to end call and then click video call again to get the other party can hear me and after a few minutes,...


1. this could be several reason why the sound cut out when using skype
2. check the hard drive capacity
3. you may need more RAM ( random access memory). If you are at minimum this may not be enough to complete the VOIP ( voice over IP)
4. this could be the connection with the skype recipient.
5.check your skype settings
6.check the sound card in your laptop ( drivers etc)
7. check the speakers of the laptop the may be malfunctioning or the earphones if used.

New Aspire netbook.. microphone -others hear me as garbled


The performance of Skype is affected by the bandwidth available from your ISP. The video image your are sending and receiving occupy a large part of the information transmitted over the Internet, therefore make sure the video image setting is at a resolution of 320X240 (e-mail size) and if this is still affecting the audio quality to the other person (ie. the voice breaks up) and the video image then switch the video camera off and if sound and video image from the other party is also affecting you, then also get them to switch off their video camera.
Also check the Video and Microphone settings in Skype - Tools - Options etc. Check the correct video camera and microphone has been selected.
