Speaker won't work when using the front camera

Whenever I try to record using my front camera, there is no audio. But it works just fine when I use the back camera. Is there two different speakers/mics?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

There's 3 microphones in total, when you switch modes it uses a different microphone.

You need to replace the microphone which is attached to the camera. You can find a guide on how to do this here:

The ear speaker serves as a mic for the front facing cam? Or there is a separate mic on that flat cable that I'm not aware of?

EDITE: I took a look at it and saw the mic. I've doing this for a year and never before paid attention to this simple but important details. Thanks!

You need to replace the front facing camera as the mic attached to it has went faulty..

The back camera uses a different mic it's located on the power flex
