    Mic stopped being picked up for no reason after a few hours, resetting the voice settings fixed it for now.

    Discord picks up my mic, but noone can hear me. Resetting didn't work it. Same issue on my phone. Also after reboot. I've tries everything.

    Corsair Vengeance 2100 headset stopped being picked up by Discord last night. Closing the browser tab as well as the browser entirely did not help. Adjusting input device did not help. Resetting Voice Settings did not help. Turning the headset on and off did not help. Restarting the computer resolved it.

    Note that during this time I could still hear everything through the headset.

    Also, the mic was still working via Skype, Audacity and other voice chat programs.

    (Not a complaint, just hoping this information helps with debugging.)

    @Sokolov thanks for the input. Does it happen consistently, or just once?

    It was consistent for a couple of days. It'd work for an hour or so, then later in the day it'd stop working and I'd have to restart. I think though that it isn't Discord. It's this headset specifically. I went into its Control Panel thing that comes with the driver and turned the mic on and off and since then I haven't had the issue. Will report back if it surfaces again.

    People can hear me but I cant hear anyone else... Discord was working just fine but then I had an update on my headset (VOID wireless Corsair) and after I updated now I lost sound from other people. Every thing else works fine. I've tried reseting and every option configuration I could think of, even plugging the headset into different usb drives. 24 hours of no coms from buddies sucks...

    I can't even hear discord sounds completely. No Mic output no volume input. Notification sounds are not working either. It was working fine yesterday... :( Tried all the steps, reset voice settings, checked output devices and input devices, checked volume settings, all looked nominal. Ditched and reinstalled discord to no avail. Rebooted, of course. Nothing. This sucks :(

    Long Story short, my mic gets completely disabled across the board on ALL VOIP and Games that access my mic/headset when initially starting discord every time i use it. I can hear everyone, just cant talk. Ive done everything down to the windows microphone setup and it wont pick up anything through my mic. Ive done all the fixes listed above and nothing seems to have worked. Only fix ive come across is restarting my computer and my mic just happens to work.

    I actually get this message when i mute my mic by moving it up to the top (self mute?) I guess the app can't really tell the difference.

    @Kualtek, Same happens to me. Not a big issue, just not sure if the devs are aware or if the program can't tell any difference.

    Red banner is super annoying for noise cancelling mics, and mutable headsets. Please make a "Do not show this again" button. My mic works fine.

    Red banner even shows up when muted/defended.

    Please stop this "error message" from appearing when I've only muted my microphone with my headset. I know discord doesn't pick anything, and I don't want it to when I mute it either.

    Thanks, selecting my Input Device and changing Input Volume to 50% allowed my mic to work again (still curious what deactivated it initially).

    I have a Logitech USB Headset H540. The headset has been working fine for Dragon Naturally Speacking, etc. But the user settings in Discord do not show it being picked up. I set the Input Device and the Output Device to the Logitec H540 and cranked the Input Volume and Output Volume to max and Discord will not pick up the voice activity. Help?

    Hey all, A friend has a plantronics 478 USB. Initially we couldn't get the PTT or VA audio to work on the Win10 desktop client. Then we got it working - then it stopped again. We tried reinstalling discord, running it as admin, resetting voice settings, replugging USB 'phones, mic was working fine in windows audio settings (and for mumble) - it stumped us. Then we tried the browser app - and the voice worked! So this is a workaround for now, but do you have any ideas as to what the issue may be? Thanks

    Could the red bar occur a bit more often? Can't see it enough?

    I used Discord for the last few weeks...but something happened on the desktop version and my Input Settings under Voice get stuck at 0 and no amount of logging in or out will fix it. I'm running the Public Test Version. Could not download the non-Test version from your website. It wouldn't install.

    Discord mic doesn't work while Minecraft window is active. Works on all other programs and games. I did not try other voice chats to rule out that Minecraft is the problem. Hoping other have experience to share.

    So I meant to comment that I tried "Run as Admin," but then I realized I had not tried it. And guess what? I hadn't tried it. Until now. And it's working. Jeebus.

    I constantly get the message that discord is detecting no input from my mic, but that's because I run a software that automatically mutes my mic when I'm not talking. I need a way to disable the popup notifications because they are getting annoying.

    Well, it looks like Discord is not detecting any input from this thread. Let's fix that... together. [ HELP! ]

    Discord keep muting my mic completely for no seeming reason, it happens after afk or if my headset disconnects and reconnects.

    I can hear people just fine and they can hear me, yet Discord thinks it can't pick up my Turtle Beach PX51's through Bluetooth? Weird. Just clicked to see if anyone else had the same issue. Everything works fine it's just that Discord thinks there's an issue xD

    I'm using a PS4 headset and when i join a channel i have to disconnect and rejoin, then raise the mic volume so people can hear me. Happens everytime i plug in my mic or open discord.
