Microphone Issue

Question

Montanez    25

So i bought a Blue Yeti Microphone a couple of months ago. A couple of days after i started noticing that people wouldn't hear me every now and then and i would have to re-plug the microphone and restart team speak to fix it. However, yesterday was the last time the microphone worked, although it's on, my computer won't capture any audio from it, i checked my computer settings and although the microphone appears to be correctly plugged in, it does not record any audio. I suspect it has something to do with the cord, i believe it could be broken from the inside but i'm not sure.

If you have any suggestions please let me know, and if you know where i could get another cable for the same type of microphone, please post it below, thank you.

It can have something to do with the windows audio settings.

Have you checked so that the microphone is the only source?

I remember when I had a microphone and the settings kept changing because there were interference from other sources that I forgot to make inactive.

Just to add to this, because it's what I would have suggested, but have you tried other USB ports? Front and rear? Could be something local to those port.

Also, any firmware update for the mic recently that maybe you could roll back?

Did you hear some popping sounds on you mice before it broke down? Or gave windows you any notification of the mic?

I have a Blue Yeti and I personally have never come across this issue. I know that if you mess with the settings in the back of the microphone (such as the gain) it will keep it from picking up any sound as it's used to block out background noise. So if that has been turned all the way to one side it may just be

blocking you out. It has a lot of options to change the quality of the recording. You can plug your headphones into the Yeti to test and see if you can hear yourself and play around with the settings. If that doesn't work that what Storm posted may be a quick fix for it. If all else fails it may very well just be a faulty cord. Those are a pretty cheap fix. Blue Yeti Power Cord

It sounds as if you have a broken connection somewhere. Have you dropped your yeti at all? If it is not internal issue your power cord or audio out cables maybe be the issue. You might appear to have power but you may not be carrying the correct amount of voltage to your microphones condenser and that would give you little to no pick up on your microphone.

try listening to your microphone live and turning your Mic boost to max as well as your microphone volumes and speaking as close to it as possible or tapping it hard. If you get no feedback I would assume you are having an audio out problem and a new audio cord would be in order.

To check your audio cord you will need to keep your sound settings high and fiddle around with both your mic audio out end and your computers audio in side. Just bend and rotate the cable in the port and see if you can get pops or even sound from your headset while your listening to your sound live.

Give both a try, tell us what is happening and we might be able to determine if you have damaged hardware with the mic itself or just a broken or damaged cable.

Thank you for all the suggestions guys, i haven't had any time to test any of those out, school and training are fucking me up. I will try all the suggestions in a couple of hours.

As of now...

- I did not hear any popping noises.

- The microphone is on and even when i plug the headphones into the microphone, no sound is recorded, meaning that is most likely the microphone and not the drivers nor computer.

Thanks again.

Do you have access to try the microphone on another computer?

Sorry for the delay, tried all the suggestions and none of them worked, however, Jester, i believe it is a broken cord as when i tried your last suggestion, i got some noise capture which would only pop up for about half a second. My guess is that i'm going to need to get a new one, if anybody know where, please let me know.

Thank you for all the suggestions guys.

If the cord is screwed then there isn't much you can do to fix. I don't know much about the Blue Yeti but if it is a cord you have to plugin in the microphone maybe look for that certain cord and buy it?

Was it your USB hook up. Or was it your Audio out cord?

It is the USB cord that plugs to the computer and back of the microphone. I was rolling the middle of the cable when the sound started to pop up for a little bit.

Amazon has decent prices on the cables

I am going to solve this for now, But if you try all the fixes and nothing works we will reopen the thread and continue troubleshooting. 

Best of luck Montanez hopefully its only a cable.
