Cannot hear sound on video call

I've tried a bunch of different things to fix it, but no matter what I cannot hear the other person.  He can hear me fine, but I get absolutely no sound from his end.  He already made sure it's not muted.  Just wondering what tips and tricks there are to fix it so that I can hear him without having to use my cell phone to call.

Have you tried to make a call to Echo Sound Test Service (Echo123)? Ask your contact to do the same.

Re: Cannot hear sound on video call

What settings do you have for Speakers in Tools -> Options -> Audio settings? Is there more then one option available in the dropdown box?

 

Can you hear any sound when you press the green test button next to the selection box?

Well I got that part figured out and can hear from the test, but haven't gotten a chance to test it with him while skyping.  Hopefully that fixed it :happy:  Thank you very much for your help!!!

Re: Cannot hear sound on video call

I'm having similar issues with my Android Razormax HD phone. The other person can't hear me but I can see and hear them fine. My mike isn't muted and I don't have an options on my settings list. Help! I want to visit with my new Grandson!
