microfone and hear after changing vibrate/ring switch button


i bought from you and followed your guide for changing the vibrate/ring switch button .

My iphone is working but i have a problem: can't hear on calls and can not be heard.

i think it has to do with button with number one on your guide (one of the first screenshots).

But i am not having it easy to connect that button.

(butto 3 shows up in step 6 on changing ring/vibration button guide)

Have you got any suggestion?

since you have 2 mainly unrelated problems - i think you didn't connect the ribbons 3 (earpiece) and ribbon 4 (microphone) correctly.

so the only way to find out is to disassemble it again and check those connections - they can sometimes be very tricky - but if you are careful - you can make it (and don't try to break it)

good luck

does the phone "switch" when you cover up the proximity sensor during a call?


nopes. it stays with the screen on.... do you know what is the cable to see if has any problem? tks
