Why do all the microphones are dead?

Since a few days all the mics on this iphone 5c won't record any sound: the front mic, the speaker phone and the back (movie) mic all are dead. Even when i use a bleutooth headset people don't here me. I tested recording movies, front-facing movies, voice-recording, calling, hands-free speaker calling, nothing works.

So it doesn't seem to be a problem with one of the mics....Any ideas? :)

I get suspicious, when people say "all of a sudden" if there's been no repair and no damage I guess I would say backup iTunes or iCloud and then do a reset, then restore to your backup

I understand your suspicion. Unfortunately a factory reset didn't fix the problem. I would like to fix it myself, but if all the mics are dead, what part to repair?


It just doesn't make sense, to me, that all the mics are dead. Through hardware, they're all connected differently. Which is what's making me think it's a software issue
