How To Fix The IPhone 4 (4s) Mic Problem




What do you think about this video?

IwannaMediaClips: Thanks! Works beautifully!! Bought me a little more time till my local provider has the Iphone 6 in stock which will likely not be for ever...

Viv Smitheram: My iPhone 4s has no sound whatsoever. The volume up and down shows the slide. The silent button shows 'ringer' in settings, sound, the slide goes up and down but the phone makes no sounds at all, no clicks, no ding when you plug it into the charger, nothing..... So I decided to take the logic/motherboard out of the faulty phone and put it into another fully functioning 4s and in that phone there was no sound, so the conclusion is that it is a logic/motherboard fault. Has anyone any ideas about how to fix that? I need to mention also that I have reset it, restored it and it is still the same. It is running 7.1.2 and I used the very latest iTunes version.

Creepyisawesome10: Thats the goddamn opposite of what my problem is.

Interesting Ted: I have been troubleshooting my gf's iPhone 4 for weeks. You sir are brilliant. I tested your theory by making a phone call and placing my finger on that same are of the PCB (while talking) to apply pressure. It worked! Thank You for your brilliance!

Med Youcef: Amaaaazinnnggg !!! its perfectly work with my iPhone 4 Thank u very much u are a genius :D !!!!

Khajavalisir navabs: its 100% working

Matthew Rayment: Thanks. This worked for me.

pleasedontstalkus: Thank you :)

fred molina: I have an iphone 4s, callers can't hear me when i call them, but when i put on loud speaker they can hear me... WILL THIS WORK FOR THE 4S TOO?

Melanie Haage: Sadly, this did not work for me. My iPhone 4 mic is still dead. I never dropped it so maybe that's why this didn't work.

Felipe Cavalcante: THANK YOU MAN, YOU SAVED MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Max Vfour: This is amazing!!! It works!! Many many thanks!!

Ilja Panzer: worked like a charm

Katayoun Mossafayan: Didn't work for me :( is there any other way?

souka987: Thank you so much it perfectly works 😀😀

Tina x: I dropped my iPhone 4 this morning and nobody could hear me when I tried to call them or when they called me. Came across this video, followed the instructions and it worked perfectly!! Thank-you so much :)

Kersten Toebben: thank you, this worked on my 4s (so far anyway). I just used a super tiny phillips and it didn't seem to strip the pentelobal screws. thanks again!

Chris Overton: Worked for me. Thanks for posting!

Andrew Cross: For the piece of cardboard: Use a opening end of a 12 pack of Coke.

PeteBaldwin: Just tried it and it worked! I'm amazed. I thought this would be like putting toothpaste on CDs to fix them or putting your sopping wet phone in rice but no - it actually worked perfectly! To confirm, the mic technically worked before but only very very quietly. If you put your mouth around the little speaker on the bottom left (next to the charger) and made a loud noise, you could hear it but not if you just spoke normally. It worked fine on speakerphone because that's a different mic - it's the one on the top next to the headphone jack - the little tiny hole. Definitely worth a go as it only takes a couple of minutes and if it doesn't work, you're no worse off than you were before!

busyjaymz: This is the type of stuff to put on YouTube. Great video.

Joanne Neal: After 3 attempts (one at thicker cardboard - but thinner was best) it worked!! I am now receiving calls. Thanks for the instructions ;-)

Gislaine Moreira: This did not work for me. The people hear me, but very low and sometimes with echo or wheezing. Please help me. I changed the speaker and nothing.

Nadav Super: IT DOSET WORK!!!!

victormark1: Thanks,its working,good job !

Valentin Munoz: Outstanding fix!!! Saved me some dough!

Danny Syrus: This didnt work for me. I tried many variations of this and nothing. :( 

Gaurav Suri: worked :D

killer90945: Hi please help so my microphone doesn't work n crap only with a headset or headphones nothing works not even Siri will this help or what ????

Anne Roussel: thx

setonix850: ITS FIXED !! I have a 4s and all of a sudden this morning people could not hear me, however I could hear them. The phone certainly had not been dropped but is nearly 3 years old. Oddly enough using voice memo from utilities, you could just hear your voice if you shouted at the phone and there was a bit of rhythmic static mixed in. So I found Rolando's assured voice and purchased an iPhone Repair Kit. Sure cheaper than buying a new phone ($14.00 Aud). I was a bit concerned initially, as the white spot & black covering was absent just adjacent to the battery. There was about 3-4mm of circuit board visible instead. I went ahead anyway and found the first bit of cardboard a little too thick. The second from a cereal packet worked fine and so does the phone much to my relief. Rolando, you're a genius and thanks heaps ! PS: I think you'll find the miniscule screws on the 4s require the Pentalobe type screwdriver (in Australia anyway). 

Greatscott0420: thank you so much, I'm not sure what the fix was. I did a restore, added the cardboard pieces and rapidly pushed speaker phone while in a call and it seems to work. i hope everyone else gets their fix , haha

Wali Qadri: Wow.. It really worked like a piece of cake. Thanks alot. Why is this problem caused?

John cox: And YES it worked on my 4s...

Pouncy: Worked for me! Thank you so much!

Carson Griffin: Great video with good explanations. however it cracked me up how much care you put into unscrewing those two screws. I repair iPhones so I just keep extra bags of screws on hand that are like 2 bucks apiece. haha it had never crossed my mind that they would strip out and so far they haven't.

pestul: I've noticed a few comments about 'loosening a screw'. Which screw would that be? One of the pentalobe ones near the mic? I've tried everything with a co-worker's iphone 4s, including replacing the dock.. maybe I've just tightening the screws too much?

Pete Fork: Loosening the screw shown here worked for me. The cardboard was not the fix. I did loosen it all the way out just before it came out, and then tighened it back half way I would say. It works again! they can hear me. The question is how long this is going to last or if I will have to open in it up again to loosen it more in the near future. Thanks a lot!! It would be helpful if you can tell us if it is still working after the first time you loosened the screw. Thanks!!

Jesse Marzan: iphone 4 is ok now thanks 

Rocky Carrizales: Dude!!!!!!!!! It Works!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

John cox: This worked like a champ. To find out if this fix will help you, before taking your back off press on the back of the phone over the area where you will be adding the piece of cardboard. If you phone works with you pressing on the back, this fix will work for you. Good luck.

spygrant gee: the easiest way to fix this problem is just holding firmly the apple logo behind the phone and make a call why you are still holding tight the logo,if you hear sounds all u an to do is open the phone cut a visit card or any paper and put inside the phone,exactly behind the apple logo,dats it,your phone is back to life. try it 

Justin Nelson: it don't work for the iphone 4s

Lieutske nonyobussneez: ..for iphone 4(2nd edition) it seems to have bloody WORKED!!!! Callers could not hear me when talking to them holding it upright, only when holding it horizontal they could.. I used a thin cardboard box as shown.. PERFECT, THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Adriaan Putter: Awesome, thanks dude, worked like a charm!

Anna Buckley: Thank you so much for this video!! I had the same problem as your wife with my Iphone 4 (only in calls the other person couldn't hear my voice). I followed your steps and now it WORKS!! Thanks again for this clear and useful video :)

Daniel Hagen: Wow! Tnx... It works!

Mike Mattox: Why not try electrical tape as a spacer rather than a flammable product like cardboard.

pizzdude12: Wow this actually worked, nice job!!!!!!

Rafael Trenton Chase: i'm perplexed... but it worked... but not sure if because of the cardboard, or it just fixed by itself as it usually does...
