• Mic not working


    Hello
    I have a laptop Asus A55V, when I installed antergos (cinnamon) I had the mic working just fine.
    At some point it stopped working, I’ve tried following many guides I found on the net but none of them worked for me.
    Can anyone help me please?
    Thank you in advance

  • Since I have no magic glass ball, I can not know what has already been tried everything. ;)
    But searching for the Asus A55V mostly it goes around unmuting and choosing the right mic channel with the common tools solve the problem.

    the command:

    pactl list sources
    

    will give information about sound devices.

    This is the output of that command.

  • can you provide alsamixer inside terminal try pressing [F6] you may can choose the HDA Intel device instead of dummy device.
    With [F5] you can show all channels (input/output)

  • @joekamprad
    Yeah, tried setting those to the maximum value even but the mic keeps not working

  • What you mean ? it does not stream to Monitor or it does not get any sound input?

  • Bild Text
    pavucontrol

  • It doesn’t get any sound input, in the settings panel the system recognises and finds it but for example some programs like wire tell me that i don’t have a mic, or if i try to send a vocal message via telegram in the message there’s no sound at all

    this is what i see in the settings and it doesn’t let me raise the volume up

  • this is may caused by this programs itself then.
    You can try the following:

    padsp /usr/bin/telegram-desktop
    

    “this is what i see in the settings and it doesn’t let me raise the volume up”
    because it is muted

  • @joekamprad
    The command doen’t work but i’m pretty sure it’s not the program

    Also if it’s muted, how do i unmute it?

  • Bild Text
    pressing “M” for mute/unmute the channel

  • But as long you do not say what you do/try before it is searching for needles in the hay…

  • @joekamprad
    OK for the moment i’m following what you say, unmuting it with m didn’t work out
    these are the things i’ve tried already:
    https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=141929
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PulseAudio/Troubleshooting
    https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/293876/microphone-not-working-on-archlinux
    https://www.reddit.com/r/archlinux/comments/3lngka/microphone_not_working_in_applications/

    also I’ve tried with pavucontrol and reinstalling pulseaudio but it didn’t work out

  • @joekamprad
    If you need any log I’ll provide you

    The unfortunate thing is that i realised that the mic is not working probably after a long time after something cause its current state since I don’t often use it, otherwhise It would have been way easier to troubleshoot the problem.

  • And do you try to check if the wring mic is choosen?
    alsamixer > F6 choose intel-hda > F4 input Source choose the right mic with up/down button

  • what gives you this:

    head -n 1 /proc/asound/card0/codec*
    
  • @joekamprad

    ==> /proc/asound/card0/codec#0 <==
    Codec: Realtek ALC270
    
    ==> /proc/asound/card0/codec#3 <==
    Codec: Intel PantherPoint HDMI
