I cannot get my microphone to calibrate on Captivate2. It
worked fine on Captivate. The microphones (I tried 2) are working
through my PC, but do not seem to be reaching Captivate2. My Tech
SUpport spent 30 minutes here checking all the input/output and
hardare diagnostics - we cannot figure out why I can't record
Have you checked the MIC with other applications to be sure
it is "turned on" or plugged in properly? Windows "Sound Recorder"
is a good app to do a trial run:
(Start > All Programs > Accessories > Entertaiment
> Sound Recorder)
Beyond that, Occam's Razor says to look to the most obvious
solution first. I had the same problem recently and found it was
simply the result of dust or corrosion on the plug itself,
preventing a good electrical connection when it was plugged in. I
finally fixed the issue by pulling the plug out and using a contact
cleaner on both sides (male and female) of the connection ...
electrical contact cleaner comes in a spray can to get into those
hard-to-reach places, and can be found in most electronics repair
or home entertainment stores for a a couple of bucks (you can save
by using isopropol alcohol and apply it with a cottom swab - be
careful as it is highly flammable - put that cigarette out first.
Also triple -check to be sure you are using the MIC port, not
the Line-In. I hope there is something in here that is of help to
