Recently my microphone on my Sades Mo Ling headset has stopped working.
I troubleshooted for a while, and eventually got the microphone itself to record and pick up sound, as I can hear it through my headphones, so the microphone ITSELF works.
However, what I found perplexing is that nothing will pick it up. When I went to Discord to configure my audio settings, it recognized that I had the microphone, but it wouldn't pick anything up. I tried Audacity, and it gave me an error.
So I thought that maybe it really IS my microphone. I borrowed a friends, plugged it in, same issue. I even tried my headset on his computer, and it worked there.
I've tried reinstalling drivers, using different ports on my computer(I've got a corsair keyboard that usually works when I plug things into it, the front panel, and the back panel).
Does anyone know what could be causing the problem? I'm in the process of purchasing another headset. Perhaps that it will work. If not, I will refer to this thread.
Thank you in advance.
I wonder if we are having the same problem...
Your problem sounds similar but not exact.
Can you see green bars if you go into recording devices? If I enable listen to this device, I can hear myself talking loud and clear with green bars. Discord and game launchers acknowledge that they are getting input from my mic, but discord solid green bar test fails but if I switch it over to like sound sensitivity, it shows that it is picking it up. Recording software picks my microphone up and I can hear myself, but in an online game, if I try to talk, the game shows no signs of actually receiving ay input from me. Ive reinstalled my drivers multiple times too.
Edit: this is what I mean about the discord situation and its the same case for everything else,
Discord can hear my mic when I put input sensitivity as shown in here: https://i.imgur.com/tz6yPR4.png
But when I want to talk in a call it doesnt receive. When I try this test (the solid green bar test), it fails. What I mean by green bar: https://i.gyazo.com/d3cec7fcd52c53b57f43e160555a12be.png
