I muted myself

Machine: Xbox Slim Black

 

I was playing Gears of War 3 and they have a "Mute Resident" function to mute people in a patch. I pressed "X" in lobby and the friends screen popped up. I then pressed "START" to use the "MUTE RESIDENT" function in the screen however I was muted myself too.

In every game and in party of the dashboard I also have a mute icon next to my gamer tag. I can hear and talk to others in "Party Talk" or in "Game Talk" and they can hear and talk to me too. I was tried to install the Monday Night Combat and play through different parts. I was unmuted in some point which I can't recall. However I had cleared the cache of my console and the mute icon appeared again. I can't remove it by the same way.

Are there any official method to unmute myself? As I need to know weather my mic is working or not. I don't want to keep talking but can't see if my mic cannot receive my voice. I am sure it's not the mic's problem and my privacy setting for chat and message is opened to everyone. I had tried to clear the console's cache and even tried restoring my live account on my xbox.

I think you guys should add a function for players to mute or unmute themselves to prevent this kind of glitch in several games.

I'm not sure, If I understand the issue correctly but I think there's an option somewhere under system on the dasboard where you can set some voice properties

I must ask, you have checked that the headset itself isn't muted :-) I had that problem once myself

I know which part you're talking which is the privacy setting. You can config the voice chat and message chat. I tried that before.

Many people asked the same question for this glitch but as I mentioned, I can chat with others. So it's not the problem of my headset or my controller (someone said I can check my controller as well).

Hey guys! We are currently aware of an issue where you can "mute" yourself, but this only shows the icon. Functionality should not be affected. We are working to correct this issue now.
