    Skype outgoing audio - Clicking bakground sound

    Hi -

    I have a 46PFL8008k/12 with FW:QF2EU-0.173.44.0. the TV is equipped with camera and microphones.
    When using Skype, the video and the incoming sound (what I hear) work well. However there a strong clicking sound on the outgoing sound, my interlocutor would hear a load clicking noise on the top of my voice. Same observation when when I try to call the skype testing service.
    I had the same issue with the previous FW.


    This issue has been reported for the 7xx8 series.
    http://www.supportforum.philips.com/...outgoing+audio

    And it has been suggested that it was a hardware fault.

    How to verify if it is a hardware (microphones maybe) or software fault?
    How to fix it?

    Best regards

    Hi all,

    The issue of the clilcking sound in Skype is still being investigated. The issue is not 100% reproducable, even on TVs with this reported issue.

    Thank you for your patience while we are working out where the issue originates from.

    Best regards,

    Any new solution to this? I feel like the second hand value on my 2 month old tv is destroyed by this. If the TV wasn`t sold out at the dealer I would have changed it by the 45 day return, but now I am stuck with a tv with a camera that has no value at all.

    Hi ryvaenge,

    We are just about to come to a conclusion about the issue. I'm expecting to have an update this week or early next week. Can't promise this however.

    But we are close!

    Hi all,

    If you have not done so already, please contact your local customer service team as the TVs with Skype Clicking Sound require a service intervention to resolve this issue.

    Thank you for your patience in this matter!

    Just so people know....I found my 46PFL8008 does this too. I went to the shop, tried the one their and it was also the same and their display one is a LOT older than mine....mine was fresh stock that already had firmware on it dating back to February. We also know that the 7 series TVs are affected. I think Philips have been making TVs with defective microphone modules for months and months and nobody has noticed.

    However, I would not rush to fix it. I had a long Skype video call with my parents and they told me that it was a non-issue and that if my voice volume was 10/10, the clicking was 2/10. Sometimes the clicking even went away. But if I try the test voice call on Skype, the clicking is much louder.

    I think when you Skype to a PC it has some kind of background noise reduction in it and seems to filter most of it out. I asked several times if it was bothering my parents and they said it really wasn't a big issue for them whatsoever. I also tried some test voice calls to a landline and noticed when either party was talking the clicking stopped...it only seemed to happen while there was silence at both ends.

    Very sloppy work by Philips....clearly they have a new mic module that supresses the interference from within the TV now....but make sure you try some "real" calls with "real" people before concluding that you need to justify repairing the set.
