Why does my fairphone disconnect the microphone during calls?

My fairphone obviosly disconnects from the mic during calls, so the person I am talking to cannot hear me any more. I can still hear the other person.

After I have interrupted the call by hanging up the phone works properly again for a while.

Try using the earphones with the microphone attachment.

If you can be heard all the time this proves that the voice transmission circuitry is OK but that there is a problem with the phone's microphone. It is either intermittently faulty itself or it has a loose connection to the systemboard.

Here is a link to the Ifixit guide on how to replace the microphone in your phone.

If you still experience the problem when using the earphones with the microphone attachment then there is a problem with the voice transmission circuitry in the systemboard.
