  1. Microphone Problems


    My microphone has started acting up recently. When I first connect my Bluetooth headphones, my mic works perfectly fine, but a few minutes later, the mic stops picking up audio. This has happened on multiple programs and with two different pairs of headphones with mics. I’ve updated my drivers, checked the devices aren’t muted and are set as the default device. It works fine for a bit then just stops, any ideas on how to fix?

    Microphone issues

    Hi Michael,

    Here are the possible reasons why you're getting an error "The microphone did not pick anything up" when using it:

    • Incorrect settings (microphone is not set as default device)
    • Corrupted or outdated driver
    • Faulty device

    For us to isolate the issue, we'd like to know the following:

    • Were there any changes made to your computer prior to this issue(e.g. Windows updates)?
    • Have you tried connecting other microphone to your computer?
    • Have you tried connecting the microphone to the other computer?

    In the meantime, we suggest running the Recording Audio Troubleshooter to find and repair problems with recording sound. We also suggest checking if your microphone is set as your default recording device. For troubleshooting steps, please see
    Geethu B's on this
    link.

    We're looking forward to your reply.

    Cortana Microphone headset problems.

    Hi Mike,

    Thank you for using Windows 10.

    I understand your concern. I suggest you to follow the steps:

    • Open settings by clicking thee windows icon the click settings.
    • Search Sound in the top right corner and click it.
    • Then right click the one device you want to use, then click default communication device.
    • Then try Cortana.
    As you've already set up microphone but I would suggest you to check again by typing microphone set up and go through that, it should set everything up for you.
