Don’t wait until a conference is supposed to start Common Problems –They Can’t Hear Me –I Can’t Hear Them –We’re Not Connected –The Lips Don’t Match The Sound –Can Hear But Can’t See –Picture Is Frozen

36 Common Problems and Fixes They Can’t Hear Me Check location of microphone Look for microphone mute symbol on screen –Falcon - Microphone with red slashed circle –Meeting Point – red x on microphone in Local window –Windows – Line-In muted Have other end check volume control on TV
