External microphone Lenovo Legion Y540

2020-09-15, 14:12 PM

Hi,

I have plugged in my ext mic but it doesn't recognize as a microphone and it doesn't work & my sound got muted if i connect it. 

I saw that there are a lot of similar questions but none of them covered mine since:

  • my jack is exactly the type what new laptops support (4 pin)

 

My device is a BOYA BY-M1 external mic. 

Thanks for helping.

Best,
Alex

It may be the same 3.5mm, 4-conductor plug, but it's likely the pinout isn't the same. I can't find any documentation on what pinout the Boya uses, but they DO advertise that it works with camcorders and phones. I know that most phones use a different pinout than Lenovo computers. Have a look at this article. While not the same model as yours, Lenovo uses the same pinout across most of its models, AIUI.
