  1. Mic not working xbox 1s


    Hi can anyone help my sons mic has stopped working we have tried a different mic and controller and followed all the resets and tips but still not working

    We have noticed a mic muted icon on screen and the menu for audio has disappeared from settings . I can only find older posts about a bug but surely this would have been fixed by Microsoft

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Thanks Chris

    :)

    Mic not working xbox 1s

    Hello Charile!

    Sorry to hear you are having issues with his microphone. Here are some steps to try:

    If you can't hear sound, or if others can't hear you when you use the Xbox One Chat Headset, try the following solutions first:

    • Disconnect the headset or unplug the headset cable from the bottom of the controller, and then reconnect it firmly to the controller (in the expansion port for a headset or the 3.5-mm port for a 3.5-mm chat headset).

    [table][tr][td][td][td][/tr][tr][td][​IMG][/td][td][td][​IMG][/td][/tr][/table]

    [table][tr][td][td][td][/tr][tr][td][​IMG][/td][td][td][​IMG][/td][/tr][/table]

    Note If you have a 3.5-mm chat headset, never pull on the headset cable when removing it from your controller. Remove your headset from your controller by pulling on the body of the headset plug.

    • Make sure the headset is not muted. To do this, check the mute button on the headset controls. (For a headset, the mute button is on the left side of the connector that is plugged into the expansion port of the controller. For a 3.5-mm chat headset, the
      mute button is a slider button on the front of the audio controls that are in the middle of the headset cable.)

    [table][tr][td][td][td][/tr][tr][td][​IMG][/td][td][td][​IMG][/td][/tr][/table]

    • Increase the audio. If you're using a headset plugged into the 3.5-mm port, go to Settings, choose Devices & accessories, and then select your controller and adjust your audio options.
    • Try using a different controller or headset to check for a hardware malfunction.
    • Update your controller to make sure you have the latest software. See Attach an Xbox One Chat Headset to an Xbox One Wireless Controller.
    If these solutions didn’t solve the problem, use the following troubleshooting solutions.

    Note The Xbox One Chat Headset is designed for use with Xbox One controllers only. The headset is not intended to be used with any other device. The Xbox One console does not transmit game sounds or music through the Xbox One Chat Headset.
    If you're looking for an Xbox One headset that provides both game and chat audio, see Set up and troubleshoot your Xbox One Stereo Headset.

    If these troubleshooting steps didn't solve the problem

    Examine and clean your Xbox hardware

    To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Examine the headset, the cord, and the connector for visible defects.
    2. Make sure that no dirt or debris is on the headset connector. To clean the connector, use a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol.
    3. Verify that your Xbox One controller operates correctly, and that you can use the controller to turn on and turn off the console. For help troubleshooting Xbox One controller issues, see Xbox
      One Wireless Controller disconnects or can't connect
      .
    4. Firmly insert the Xbox One Chat Headset connector into the expansion port under the directional pad (D-pad) and the right stick on the controller.

    [table][tr][td][​IMG][/td][/tr][/table]

    Configure your privacy and online safety settings

    When you set up a profile for a child on the console, the Privacy & online safety settings let the owner of a parent profile control who can communicate via chat with the child profile on Xbox Live. In the Privacy & online safety section,
    you can enable chat communication in the child's profile. For players under age 17, the default setting is Friends Only.

    To configure Privacy & online safety settings, follow these steps:

    1. Sign in using one of the following accounts:
      • Your Xbox account
      • The parent account of the child account you’re having problems with
    2. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
    3. Select Settings.
    4. Under Account, select Privacy & online safety.
    5. Select View details & customize.
    6. Select Communicate with voice and text.
    7. Select specific friends or everybody, depending on who you want that profile to talk to.

    If you hear an echo or noise during gameplay

    Note If you hear an echo effect, it often originates from the person who is talking and not necessarily from the person who hears the echo. For example, if you hear an echo only when someone else talks, the problem may be with the headset
    connection of the person who is talking.

    The following conditions may cause an echo or noise during gameplay:

    • The microphone detects ambient noises. This includes voice transmission that comes from the earpiece.
    • The headset plug is not fully inserted into the controller.
    • You’re using the Xbox One Wireless Controller, and the battery levels in the unit are low.
    If you or other players hear an echo or other noise during gameplay, try the following:

    • Turn the volume down on your TV or stereo.
    • Disconnect the headset, and then reconnect it firmly to the controller's expansion port.

      Note Never pull on the headset cable when removing it from your controller. Remove your headset from your controller by pulling on the body of the headset plug.
    • Clean the plug on the headset cable with a clean cloth, and then reconnect the headset to the controller.
    • Test the headset by connecting it to a different controller.
    • If you're using an Xbox One Wireless Controller, replace the AA batteries or recharge the Xbox One rechargeable battery.

    If others can't hear you

    If you can hear others in a party or game but they can't hear you, try these solutions.

    Solution 1: Make sure your headset is not muted

    Check that the orange LED light next to the Mute button is not on.

    Solution 2: Power cycle your Xbox One console

    For help, watch the following video or see How to restart or power cycle your Xbox One console.

    [table][tr][td]Video: Power cycle your Xbox One console[/td][/tr][tr][td][​IMG][/td][/tr][/table]

    Watch the video Power cycle your Xbox One console. Note This video is available in English
    only.


    Solution 3: Re-associate your controller with your profile

    1. To return to the Home screen, press the Xbox button to open the guide, and then select Home.
    2. Select your gamerpic in the upper-left corner of the screen.
    3. Locate your profile and select Choose this person.
    Solution 4: Verify the NAT type for your network

    Network Address Translation (NAT) lets you hide your IP address from devices that are not on your network. For more information about NAT, see the "Current network status" section at Network
    settings on Xbox One
    .

    Solution 5: Test your Xbox One Chat Headset

    To test the headset, start a party (requires Internet connectivity) to test the audio:

    1. Sign in to Xbox Live on your Xbox One console.
    2. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
    3. Under Party, select Start a party. (You don't need to invite anyone for this test.)

      Note If you can't start a party, check your connectivity by using the Xbox One Multiplayer Game Solution.
    4. Make sure your mic is not muted in party chat.

      Note You can use the Y button on your controller to toggle mute on or off.
    5. Make sure your headset is not muted. Here’s how:
      • For a headset, check that the orange LED light next to the Mute button is not on.
      • For a 3.5-mm chat headset, check that the Mute slider on the front of the audio controls in the middle of the headset cable is completely showing green.
    6. Make sure the volume is turned up.
    7. Speak into the microphone.
    If your headset is working, you’ll see the ring around your gamerpic light up.

    Solution 6: Troubleshoot your connection with the Xbox One Multiplayer Game Solution

    If you have switched out your controller and headset, but you're still having issues with being heard or with hearing others in party chat, check your connectivity by using the Xbox
    One Multiplayer Game Solution
    .

    Solution 7: Use the Skype app to test the headset

    You can use the Skype app to test your headset. Here’s how:

    1. Sign in to your account.
    2. Select the Skype app.
    3. Select People, and then select the Skype Test Call contact.
    4. Select Voice call. Skype will try to connect your voice call.
    5. The call will ask you to speak into the mic and will repeat what was heard.
    If you still can't hear your friends online after you've started a party, but you can hear sound while using in-game chat or another app like Skype, see You
    can't switch to party chat on Xbox One
    .

    If these troubleshooting steps didn't solve the problem

    If you've followed these troubleshooting steps but your chat headset still doesn't work, it may need to be replaced. To order a replacement, go to Device Support.

    Mic not working xbox 1s

    Try performing a hard reset EXACTLY like this. Hold the power button on the console for 8 seconds or until the power shuts down completely.
    Unplug the power cord from the back of the console for 5 minutes.
    Plug the power cord back in and restart the console.

    If that doesn't help you can try using the adapter on the controller. Others have had that to resolve the issue.

    Any news on headphones ?

    I'm really hoping MadCatz is going to be working on a mic adaptorfor their WarHead headsets because I've only heard the adaptors werefor wired 1s. I'm thinknig maybe they should make 1 so an adaptor plugs into the headset jack,
    then the mic into the adaptor so it can at least function as it would normally with the headset and base station or however that works.
  5. Dave Eckert Win User

    Is the tritton warhead compatible

    You're still not really making much sense here. The WarHead's mic's sync would be with the headset once plugged in (or prsuming the base stationas part pof the headset), which then syncs with the base station. If the XBox One
    has an optical audio jack, then there shpouldn't be a problem. As for other XBox 360 headsets, yeah, there's the 1s that plug into the 2.5mm jack on the Xbox 360 controller, then there's the wireless sync 1s which sync directly to the console. The fact that
    the mics aren't wired isn't going to hinder ther use.
