Mic not working after dock connector replacement
I was having issues with in-app sound, basically seemed like the phone always was in "dock-mode", so I wouldn't be able to play sound from apps through the speakers. I did restores/resets/cleanings/etc and I couldn't get it to work.
So.. I bought a new dock connector, and replaced it. I switched over the rubber microphone piece when I did the install. The new connector seemed like a success at first, the phone charged, played sound, did everything just find, UNTIL I made my first phone call and the person on the other side could not hear me.
I thought maybe the rubber thing wasn't positioned well, so I took it off and made a call without it on. It worked just fine. I thought "Great, it was just the rubber thing out of line."
I reinstalled, making sure I was very careful about the placement of the rubber mic piece. Made a call-no mic.
I have since tried it on/off, wiggled, cleaned, etc. and I am getting NOTHING from the mic.
Am I missing something or was this dock connector just bad?
