Can Not Get Built-in Mic To Work On Toshiba Satellite L755-S5214

#1 Post by StephanSmith » Tue Oct 02, 2018 2:19 pm

Hey everyone, I just installed MX17.1 on this Toshiba Satellite L755-S5214 laptop. It has a built-in mic and camera. The camera works fine but the mic will not record sound on the videos or anywhere else. The System Info lists the mic as HDA Intel PCH Mic. Thinking it was a problem with the mic, I tried a few Logitech USB webcams I have. Cameras worked great, no sound on the mic. I have been looking for a solution for this but I haven't found anything yet. And to verify that the mic does work, I put in the win10 drive I have for the laptop, and it worked fine on the darkside. Thanks in advance!!!

I would check to see if the inputs volumes are set too low on the mic. check alsamixer and pavucontrol.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

Hi Dolphin, I checked all the settings. For some reason the mic was muted, but the button showed it wasn't. Mic works now. I just have to figure out a good setting so Folks can hear me but not the background noise... Thank you sir!!!
