At this point I would expect the audio logic on the logic board is damaged. Double check by plugging in an external speaker in the phono outlet. If that is likewise dead.

If the phono outlet is working then you'll need to check your speaker & microphone connections on the logic board.

Phone outlet is not working.

I think it is time to measure all voltages and signals around the audio IC.


Measuring all voltages around the audio chip made me decide to change the audio chip.

Removed the old one and placed a new chip.

Now the audio is 100% Good !
