2nd microphone not working

I did an LCD replacement on a phone I bought, I couldn't test before so no idea if it worked before but after finishing everything I noticed a small rip on the cable so I replaced it. I replaced it with another one and that didn't work either so I replaced it yet again and still nothing

The microphone in camera works and the microphone for google now

I am not sure if google now uses primary or secondary microphone (bottom microphone)

anybody have any ideas which is what or what the problem could be

Does microphone work during calls? If not that's the bottom microphone which I'm pretty sure is part of the power + volume flex cable that also connects the LCD.

If it doesn't work on video record then it could be the other microphone which is connected to the headphone jack assembly.

yes that is the flex cable. i can not test if it makes calls or not due to not having an active sim for this carrier
