Chosen Solution

Open the device up, clean the entire logic board with 99.9% isopropyl alcohol and a toothbrush, make sure you avoid getting alcohol inside the microphones, as these get damaged very easily, this is the DIY solution, or you can take it to a professional repair shop that uses ultrasonic cleaning. :-)
