Internal microphone not registering sound, even on fresh install
My internal microphone seems to not register any sound anymore, at all. I still see it in System Report -> Audio -> Devices and as an option in System Preferences -> Sound -> Input, but under System Preferences, the "input level" doesn't show any bars, even with input volume at max.
The issue persists after a completely fresh install (blank disk, no restore from Time Machine, etc) of 10.10. I've also reset PRAM/NVRAM. So I suspect a hardware issue.
The 1 year Apple warranty is expired, but I might have 1 year extra through the credit card I bought it with. Is my only option shipping it back to apple at this point? Thanks.
Is this a good question?
