Low microphone level Yoga Book Android

2016-11-06, 16:31 PM

Hi!

 

Getting settled in on the Yoga Book Android version and just love it but there is one issue preventing me from parking my ThinkPad Yoga 260 in the office permanentey - sound from the mic is terribly low in when recording audio or participating in e.g. skype calls. 

 

Anyone else experiencing this an if so - any suggestions on solutions?

Hi Nils,

 

Is this concerning a Yoga Book with Android or a ThinkPad Yoga 260?

 

Regards,

Dave

Ok, now I got what you mean. You would like to just use the Yoga Book Android and at home and keep the ThinkPad parked in the office, but you can't because of microphone issues. 

 

Skype for Android should have some settings for Audio/Video, does it not? Test it with the preinstalled Sound Recorder app. 

 

Note: The other standard things are uninstall & install skype. Or do a full factory reset of the tablet. I had some lenovo phones with skype sound issues, but did not yet test this on YB-A.

Thanks!

 

Seems to be a problem regardless of what app gets the input. Tried deactivating google voice and the dolby sound thingy without any improvement. The only way to get anything hearable across is to talk directly and very closeley into the mic holes on top of the screen which is very impratical as the screen cannot be seen from that angle.

 

Seems almost like the actual mics are faulty or not aligned to where they should sit in the HW.

Solved!

 

The following solved my problem:

1. Gently pushing a needle down the hole where the right mic sits - apparently there was some residue there obstructing the sound

2. In dolby atmos settings activating Volumle leveler and turning off the dialogue enhancer and sound virtualizer options.

 

Sound is still not crisp but fully hearable thus sufficient for my needs.

I read somewhere that some people use a new toothbrush to gently brush the microphone or speakers. This was in the context of mobile phones but maybe it could help in your cases. I once tried using the toothbrush on a mobile phone, and it did not really help, but maybe it could help in some cases. Also if you are unsure about the functioning of the hardware, you have a full right to contact the Lenovo Service center within your country to help with the solution.
