SL510 microphone inacceptable

Hey Forum.

 

I posted this issue with my SL510 integrated microphone in the German Board as well, but the English one seems to be more active and so I hope for answers here.

 

Following:

The SL510 has, as you probably know, an integrated webcam and microphone.

Of course I dont expect such an intergrated microphone to deliver fantastic quality, but never the less, the person I skype with should understand what I say without extraordinary effort.

So when I speak there is always something like a cracking noise in the, if you will, foreground.

The interesting thing is, that the mic works superb when I deactivate the screen!

So not a software-problem?

 

I know I am not the only one one having these troubles.

Does anyone know a solution?

Can I let it repair by Lenovo using the warranty?

(Eventhough I dont feel comfortable with it...)

 

Thanks a lot!

And excuse my English, please :smileyhappy:

Have you got the driver provided by lenovo? It gives you a red tray icon - go there and click in the microphone tab. Enable noise suppression and acoustic echo cancellation. Personally I find the microphone brilliant for skype, I can talk at a comfortable volume at a comfortable distance. I suppose if you still have issues there might be something wrong with your laptop.

Re: SL510 microphone inacceptable

I had the same issue about a month ago, and it somehow suddenly gone and now everything is ok... maybe the updates do fix it?

Re: SL510 microphone inacceptable

Thanks very much for your answers.
I looked for a newer driver but didnt found anything.
If you know that, I would be happy about a link.

I also tried to play around in the settings.
It became better since then but is still not satisfying.
Anyway: Thanks a lot!

Re: SL510 microphone inacceptable

Have you tried to record your voice through another program and to see if the noise is still there?

Yes I tried with the Microsoft Soundrecorder.
The problem still exists.
Sorry for not mentioning that before...

I have 3
 x SL510 and they have the same noise in the microphone.
and if I turn on the webcam, the noise becomes even more

it's defective?
