Mute Glitch

Machine: Xbox Slim Black

 

I was playing Gears of War 3 and they have a Mute Strangers function to mute people. I pressed "X" in lobby in arcade and the friends screen popped up. I then pressed "START" to use the Mute Strangers 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.

If this happens only in Gears of War 3, then you need to report this problem to Epic Games themselves.

The best way to test your mic's functionality is by trying to record your voice through a text message.

Please note that the controller is also responsible for the quality of chat, so you might need to try another controller.

I think you missed this part:

You might have been on a mute ban, due to complaints against you.


Please get in touch with a Xbox Support for more clarification.

@Major Moyo  He said he could hear others, but he also said they could hear him to, so I don't think it would be a mute ban.

I have the same issue. I hadn't noticed it when it started but, I was playing gears of war 3 and got offline. Soon after I got back on and joined a party and had the same problem since although it.s more annoying than a problem.
