Since yesterday whenever I call or am called I cannot hear anything from the other side.
I’ve never experienced that before
Amazingly, I hear all the calling preamble, ringing etc. After the call is answered no sound comes out of the speakers. It happens even with Skype test call. It happens when I call people in Rio de Janeiro where I live or in calls to Thailand.
Sound works OK with every other application.
I’m using a 10 Mb cable link thru a Linksys WIFI router. The computer is a MacBook pro with 8GB.
Calls with Skype on my iPhone work OK in the same environment.
Could it be just holidays overload or a local node compromised?
Thanks for any help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It's probably something very simple. Check your Sound settings in System Preferences AND Audio settings in Skype's preferences. Sometimes one or the other can go a bit wonky.
Unfortunately it is not that simple.
First, it used to work OK till yesterday. Nothing has been changed to cause this.
I already checked both Skype preferences and sound preferences at System Preferences.
All tests work OK at the OS (Lion) level and at Skype too. Sounds do not come out of the speakers, only when they come from the Internet.
Just checked Skype test call again. I hear the call ringing but when the bot picks it up the call silence takes over.
Reboot and reinstalling Skype didn’t work. Rebooting the router also did not.
I tried something more drastic. Deleted everything related to Skype present on my machine using AppCleaner and reinstalled Skype. The problem is gone.
I am having the exact same problem. I hear the ring, the other person can hear me, but I cannot hear them. Was working fine and one day just quit. I have tried all of the suggested solutions, including uninstalling and reinstalling Skype (twice) and it still does not work. Any one have any more help to offer? And is there any way to get help from Skype? I sent a message and got no answer. Thanks!
Moved to Windows forum
I hardly ever use skype but today had several tries to Israel
The recipient could hear and see me
I could see the recipient but not hear them
There is no ring tone when I make the call to either this person or others
and likewise calling the checker. No reply from them either on the sms
I have not changed any settings
Solved no ringtone on my mac by going to disk utillity and have that repair mac disk. Then restarted the computer and to my joy and surprise - evereyting works fine now.
