Noisey webcam

  ooermrs 00:34 21 Oct 06

When i use my webcam the other person hears a loud hissing. It doesn't happen all the time. You can connect and it'll work fine for a lenght of time then starts hissing. When you cancel the call and start again it works fine for a while then the same again. I don't have the hissing at my end though. I've tried it on msn messanger and skype, I've even returned the webcan and got a replacement but still the same !!
Any ideas ???

The webcam won't/is very unlikely to cause hissing; more likely to be on the sound side.

Are you using your web cam through a usb hub, if so try connecting it direct.

Any idea what i could try and change sound wise ?
No, it's not connected through a hub. Its straight into a usb port the back !

Are you using BB or Dial UP?
How about the telephone line have you had that checked? It could be that causing the noise.

Using broadband.No, haven't had the line checked. The strange things is, i've made voice call using the mic in the webcam and don't get the hissing.
