Mic not working properly after screen replacement

Hello all,

I have replaced the screen on my iPhone 5s, but now my mic seems to be on the fritz. I can make outgoing calls just fine, people can hear me speak, however, I cannot use Siri, record voice, or anything else that requires voice commands. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Answer this question I have this problem too

Hi there!

On the iPhone 5s when you replace the screen, you are transferring a few things from one screen to the other, front camera, home button, that nifty shield, the proximity sensor, and the secondary mic! it looks like a little golden box with a peg sticking out of it, it is meant to push right inside of the little rubber circle next to where you put the ear speaker. That bad boy is probably blocked by something. Try taking it back apart and examining that part of the front camera flex assembly. When you put it back together, take extra special care that the little golden peg is pushed inside of that rubber circle just right!

Oh, and I forgot to mention, I never actually replaced the shield/ sensor and mic, I bought all the pieces as one and just replace the front panel from the front panel/digitizer cables up

Really!? It came as one piece? That sounds awesome! Save so much time... I'm sorry you're having trouble. Let me know how it goes!
