Step 1: Check Your Connections
The first step in fixing your mic is to check your connections. Make sure your mic is plugged into the correct port on your PS4 controller and that the cable isn’t damaged. If you’re using a wireless headset, check the battery and make sure it’s fully charged.
Step 2: Adjust Your Mic Settings
If your connections are fine, the next step is to adjust your mic settings. Go to your PS4 settings and select “Devices” and then “Audio Devices.” From there, you can adjust the volume, mic level, and input/output settings.
Step 3: Update Your PS4 Software
If your mic still isn’t working, it’s possible that your PS4 software needs to be updated. Go to your PS4 settings and select “System Software Update.” If there’s an update available, download and install it.
Step 4: Clean Your Mic
Sometimes, your mic may not work properly because it’s dirty or clogged with debris. Use a soft cloth or brush to gently clean your mic and remove any dirt or debris.
Step 5: Use a Different Mic
If none of the above steps work, it’s possible that your mic is faulty. Try using a different mic to see if it works with your PS4. If it does, then your original mic may need to be replaced.
Step 6: Contact Support
If you’ve tried all of the above steps and your mic still isn’t working, it’s time to contact support. Contact Sony support for further assistance in fixing your mic.
