Having problems with your ViewSonic VX2255 Monitor ?

VX2255 Microphone I have just bought this screen and the inbuilt camera works but the microphone does not work. Is it a driver fault, just simply broken or I haven't done the right thing yet. How would I know


Answers :

What I thought was a microphone problem turned out to be a design turd and a cable issue.\015\012
\015\012One would think that the USB connection doubles as webcam and microphone input, and the line in connection is for the speakers -- amplified or otherwise. The brainiacs at Viewsonic have designed a "line in" jack which acts as BOTH the input for the audio signal as well as feeding the microphone signal out. So you need the special cable that came with the monitor. The black jack goes into the "line in" socket behind the monitor, and the lime green one on the other end into the PC side speaker jack, and the pink one into the PC side mic-in jack. \015\012
\015\012I looked in my grab-bag of wires and things and fortunately was able to find the weird cable despite the fact I purchased the monitor more than a year ago. I never tried to use the webcam/mic feature until now.\015\012
\015\012Fortunately the tech I talked to was smart enough to realize that I was the one who should be laughing (mad) at them and not the other way around.
Solution #2 posted on Dec 15, 2009 fixed the problem. THANK YOU kbfixer !! I had to open a few moving boxes and found the cable in the original package, unopened.\015\012The other problem was getting the webcam on the monitor to pick up sound. I had to set the mic configuration WHILE running the movie application on the webcam. Otherwise, it kept resetting the mic level. Also set the DC noice cancelation on which made for a much better sound.
