While using Gmail and either audio or video chatting, I can hear the other person fine, but all they get is static from me. I have checked my sound settings, but it does not seem to make a difference. Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

When posting and asking for help, you need to provide us with information about your hardware and which version of OS X you're using. Look thru other posts to get an idea of what you should provide.

I have heard a lot about Mac users helping each other. I guess this was not the place they were talking about.

You are VERY mistaken my friend!

Have you considered it's possible no one that has read your post so far knows the answer to your question. And have you considered that when you start making accusations like you made above makes people want to help you even less.

Everybody works Monday through Friday on these forums. Me personally? I have classes. It's very possible that when you post something at 10 in the morning, you won't get a reply until 7 at night. And sometimes, there are other posters here wanting answers, and your thread topic may be buried.

Please don't assume we don't help here at Mac Forums. We absolutely LOVE to help. It's just..well some of us are busy outside the forums.



Now, have you checked to see if anything was stuck inside the input jack? It's possible you may need to clean it out.

Thanks. I have checked the input outlet, but it is clean. I have never used it. I am confused as to what is input and output. If the other person cannot hear me, is that my output? In which case, which of my sound preferences do I need to change? Input or Output? I have changed them all, but nothing seems to work.

Output is what you can hear (either speakers or headphones).

Input is what you speak into (via a mic).

If they cannot hear you, it could be a problem on their end, not yours, but for your sake, let's investigate your end.

So that indicates the problem is on their end- correct? Or..no?

I was assuming that since I called three different devices on the other end, that the problem was with me. I could be wrong.

Have you tried using the microphone in another app to see if it is a hardware or software issue? You could try iChat, or even garageband just to see if the microphone is functioning correctly. The fact that you use the word "static" makes me think it could possibly be feedback as well. Do you use external speakers with your imac?

No, I use the built in speakers. I will figure out how to use iChat.
Thanks.
