  2. Skype "can't access sound card" for microphone

    Hi,

    As you are facing issues with accessing the microphone on Skype. Do not worry we will help you with this issue.

    We appreciate your time spent in resolving the issue.

    • Do let us know if you have made any changes to the operating system prior to this issue?
    • Which version of Skype have you installed on your computer?

    As a workaround, I suggest you to check if there are any updates for the Skype app in Windows Store. If so, try to install the updates and check if it helps.

    Also, I recommend you to check with the settings in Skype app.

    Step 1: Check configuration in Skype

    Normally, you will receive the message about recording device error, if the microphone or the webcam is not configured properly in Skype.



    To check configuration:

    • Open Skype and navigate to tools
    • Click options and check for sound device.


    Step 2: Verify in the recording tab if the Microphone is enabled and working.

    To check:

    • Click Start, click Control Panel
    • Click Soundand click Audio.


    Hope it helps. Update us the status with the error message on Skype for further assistance.

    Thank you.

  4. Problems with speakers and microphone on Skype

    Lumia 930 microphone doesn't work on speaker

    Hi, I have same issue on Lumia 930, have tried the various steps proposed by Microsoft, have also tried updating software to Windows 10 but to no avail. While a number of posts on this topic suggest it is likely to be a hardware bug, my symptoms seem to
    indicate software:

    • while using the phone normally (not on speaker) the microphones work perfectly. IE microphones 1 and 2 at the bottom of the phone appear to be working 100%
    • while using the phone on speaker, microphones 1 and 2 (see http://forums.windowscentral.com/nokia-lumia-930/328279-2.htm for good photos of microphone locations) seem to be completely off
    • while using phone on speaker, microphones 3 and 4 at the top of the phone seem to work reasonably as long as I'm close to the phone. Not as well as they should on a speakerphone though.
    • microphone on headset works fine
    This does look to be a very widespread issue ... any updates from Microsoft?

    thanks
