BUILD Samsung Slate - Microphone not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does the microphone on anybody else's BUILD Samsung Slate work?  When I query for AudioCapture devices I get nothing which corresponds to the Control Panels audio device manager.  It shows no recording devices.  However I thought this PC included a microphone.  Is this just because it is a CTP or is my system borked?

  • Hi Keith,

     

    The Samsung Windows Developer PC does include a microphone. One of the easiest ways to troubleshoot your Samsung PC is to Refresh your PC; this method will reinstall the OS without affecting your files.

     

    To start this process, you can do the following:

    1. Tap Start > Control Panel

    2. Select the General section on the left

    3. Tap the “Get started” button under “Refresh your PC without affecting your files”.

    4. Tap the Next button at the “Refresh your PC” step of the wizard.

    •This first step of the wizard is shown in a green strip that covers the middle portion of the screen.

    •The description text at this step shows the following:

     

    Here’s what will happen:

    •Your files and personalization settings won’t change.

    •Your PC settings will be restored to their defaults.

    •Apps from Windows Store will be kept. All other apps will be removed.

     

    5. Tap the Refresh button at the “Ready to refresh your PC” step.

    •This description text at this step shows the following:

     

    Your PC will restart. This will take a few minutes.

     

    At this point, the PC will restart and the Push Button Reset process will take over. Once completed, your PC will reboot and you will be left at the Lock Screen where you can log back in with your existing user account.

     

    Let me know if this method fixed your issue.

  • It turns out the hardware works. Just tested with the Sound Recorder. Looks like this is a WinRT API issue with microphone discovery or a bug in my program.  ☺
