[SOLVED] Mic through audio jack not recognised- ASUS FX505GD

Post by zaahirlaher »

Hi,

when I try to use headsets with a mic through my audio jack, the headset speakers work, but not the mic. The mic not recognized, and still defaults to laptop default. I've tried 3 different headsets to confirm the issue, and the results are consistent.

Watching... I have a similar problem. I plug my SteelSeries headset into the audio port... but the mic does not work.

Hello zaahirlaher.

What you want to see is an option for a Heaset Mic or Headphone Mic, that I don't believe is an option for you presently.

In the terminal run aplay -l and in the output you'll hopefully see an ALC number. Here's a snipped output of mine for an example:

Code: Select all

card 2: Generic [HD-Audio Generic], device 0: ALC221 Analog [ALC221 Analog]
  Subdevices: 0/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
In my case, I have ALC221. If your output has 22X, 23X, 25X, 269, 27X, 28X, 29X or 3XXX (the X's are placeholders for any digit such as 221, 222, 223, 224, etc) then give this a shot to see if adds the Headset Mic option to your input devices:

Code: Select all

sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/snd-hda-intel-headset.conf <<<'options snd-hda-intel model=dell-headset-multi'
Don't worry about Dell being in the name regardless of your computer manufacturer. This is the name the ALSA developers gave to the quirk as it was first discovered with Dell's.

Reboot when done then look to see if you have the new input device.

If that didn't work, edit the file with xed admin:///etc/modprobe.d/snd-hda-intel-headset.conf and change the line to this:

Code: Select all

options snd-hda-intel model=headset-mode
Save the file, ignore the warnings from the terminal then check the input devices.

And one more option if that also failed:

Code: Select all

options snd-hda-intel model=headset-mic
Save. Reboot. Check.

Good luck.

P.S. It is common for new devices to be muted at first. If the option showed up but isn't working check for that. You may need to run alsamixer to unmute.

Thanks MrEen,

I have ALC 233.

This worked for me:
sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/snd-hda-intel-headset.conf <<<'options snd-hda-intel model=dell-headset-multi'

I know this is solved - and the primary issue was solved.

But now mic volume seems to fluctuate without me adjusting it. Is this normal?

If you mean it moves while your speaking into it, that's definitely not normal.

If you instead mean it changes the level between uses, that's much more possible and might be solved by using pavucontrol to set the volume level.

I just switched to the Teams Client instead of the browser. The issue does not seem to be happening. I'll use this work around

The mic volume auto adjust issue looks like a Chrome/Chromium issue.

Not a Linux Mint issue.

Hi MrEen,

So I'm back at the same issue. I tried to upgrade to mint 20, but then I occasionally lost keyboard and USB functionality and also lost audio. I tried a clean install of MInt 20 and had the same issues. I went back to a clean install of 19.3. I again don't have mic functionality through my headset. I tried the solution above that previously worked - to no avail.

Whats strange is that this time I don't have an ALC number when running "aplay -l"

Output of aplay -l

Code: Select all

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: sofsklhdacard [sof-hda-dsp], device 0: HDA Analog (*) []
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: sofsklhdacard [sof-hda-dsp], device 1: HDA Digital (*) []
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: sofsklhdacard [sof-hda-dsp], device 3: HDMI1 (*) []
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: sofsklhdacard [sof-hda-dsp], device 4: HDMI2 (*) []
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: sofsklhdacard [sof-hda-dsp], device 5: HDMI3 (*) []
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
Any ideas?

Yes. Your reinstalled system is now using the new sof audio driver. We can force the use of the legacy snd-hda-intel driver so your previous steps should work by running this then rebooting:

Code: Select all

sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-fix.conf <<<'options snd-intel-dspcfg dsp_driver=1'
That should allow what you did before to work. If not, let me know and we'll do some digging.
