Blue Yeti Microphone died?


Best Answer MRVANSMAN, February 12, 2016

Well, I'm running out of ideas. 

 

Do you know how to look into event viewer to see if there are any events that are related to the Yeti?

Have you tried rebooting? :D

Have you tried uninstalling every device driver that touches that things and letting them re-install (IE: Remove it from device manager)?

 

Depending on these answers, we can start debugging USB events. 

I did all of these and still nothing, I'm starting to believe it's a ghost

 

 

Did you update any nvidia drivers prior to the mic taking a crap? I know I have had issues in the past with nvidia sound drivers screwing with my old sound card's drivers

I did not

So almost 2 months ago I got a Blue Yeti microphone. It worked great, sounded good and caused me no problems

 

Of course until now

 

Last night I was testing it out in Discord...this is where it gets strange

 

I hopped into an empty channel on my own server and was watching the voice indicator and it seemed to pick up my voice, even though it was a little low the ring around my icon still lit up green.

So then I decided to do a quick voice recording and nothing at all. Then I plugged a pair of earbuds into the mic and still nothing. I've reinstalled the drivers, changed USB ports.

 

PLEASE HALP

You checked all the settings on the microphone itself? I have one myself, could it be its set to a weird setting? Maybe the USB cord you're using is wonky? Is windows picking it up as a recording device?

I checked everything I could, It's set as the default recording device and I've switched out the USB cord. Nada

Does the windows Mixer pick it up when you talk? What are you trying to record in?

Have you tried a different USB port and/or cable?

So, you are getting voltage to the mic, but it's not working when you speak......

 

Let's see.....

 

Does the port on the Yeti seem to be in tact (all the copper contacts are where they should be), Maybe a USB Data pin is pushed out or not aligned)?
