    Premier Elements 12 - audio in timeline won't play although it was working fine before I installed an external microphone

      I am new to Elements 12 and have started my first movie project.  After tinkering for a while I was able to turn my photos into a movie with transitions and effects.  Then I added a soundtrack from the selection available in the Audio file.  That also worked well.  I installed an external microphone to add narration.  When I added the narration it played but the soundtrack did not.  I took the microphone out of the computer and the soundtrack still won't play.  I deleted the narration, checked to make sure the speakers were activated and the soundtrack still won't play.  When I preview soundtracks they are fine.  After I drag them into the timeline they don't work.  But, I don't have a red line in the timeline as some help discussions address.

       

      Any ideas?
