I can't be heard by the person I am calling. Why?

I need help! Why can the person I am calling from my iPad not hear me even though I can hear them perfectly. Is there a setting I don't know about?

Either you mute your microphone of Skype or the sound volume of your contact 's device is set too low.

Actually my microphone is on because the person receiving and accepting my call hears some static noise which completely goes silent when I turn off the microphone. My volume is set on high. So after trying and researching every possible venue I am beginning to think I may have a defective microphone. Tomorrow I will go visit an apple store and see what they tell me unless someone out there has another solution!

Have you asked your contact to set the sound volume to maximum ?

Re: I can't be heard by the person I am calling. Why?

I called my contact on a regular phone so there was no volume to set. I tried him both on a regular phone and a skype account neither worked. 

However, for anyone interested the problem was solved when I went into camera mode and took a two minute video with sound. This seems to have unlocked the microphone and now everything seems to work fine. Is this fluke or did it really unlock something? I cannot tell you! I love my iPad but not being able to get to the backbone of the system can be VERYfrustrating!!! thank you for your inputs.
