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




What do you think about this video?

taytaybuf: My phone has a mic problem. When I record a video or do anything that requires the mic to be used it doesn't work. It makes a loud clicking sound kinda like an old time movie if that makes sense. I have cleaned the mic and everything! Can someone please help!?!!???! 

Saulo Teodoz: HOLY **** you are a beast! thank you thank you so much hahaha so many months cannot doing calls but now I really can do! Like, subscribe and rate with pleasure. 

Hannah Ziemann: Thank you for posting this video! It worked perfectly after dropping my iPhone 4 at the gym. Thanks for saving me some big money in early upgrade fees! :)

Kaylee Luffuw: I exactly dont have it with calling but things like snapchat 

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...

Josh Lopez: It really worked! I hope it lasts loooong time...

saad alfouzan: you are amazing.

DƯƠNG NGUYỄN: thanks u lots bro ! ive just tried and it works.amazing ! 

khine myint: it is wonderful! at first my friend and me though it is impossible. But at the end we didn't believe our ear. thank you a million Sir.

TOM Cleal: GOOD JOB phone works 100% THANK YOU

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

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!

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

warwickbassist1969: I wasn't very optimistic that this would work, but it did and I thank you...

Bon Nanza: Tks for this easy simple fix Rolando, it worked!

john dela vega: Thanks for sharing. It really worked.

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

Candie Baltz: OMG get to the point

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?

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!

Matthew Rayment: Thanks. This worked for me.

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.

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.

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). 

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 :)

Khajavalisir navabs: its 100% working

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

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

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!

souka987: Thank you so much it perfectly works 😀😀

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

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

Ilja Panzer: worked like a charm

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

pleasedontstalkus: Thank you :)

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

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.

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

whitehorse1959: Great video. But replace your battery first! - if your phone is 18 months or more old. 1) Go Ebay, 2) Buy replacement battery with TOOLS 3) Wait excitedly for the package to arrive!!!! 4) 4 screws later, new power may indeed solve the glitches you have with phone calls. 5) No promises, but easy to do and cheap.

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 

victormark1: Thanks,its working,good job !

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?

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

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!!

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

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.

Pavan Shekar: This is really awesome! If you're ever in India... lemme know.. I'll buy you a beer!

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

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