iPhone 6 microphone not working after screen replacement

Hello all,

I have a iphone 6 which i did a screen replacement on. After the screen replacement i notice that the microphone doesn't work. (The one for siri and the other one for calling)

I then order a new flex cable, and put this on. Now the siri microphone works, but not the one when caling. I have tried taking it apart again and seeing if everything is lined up. I even tested with another flex cable i have here, which was from another iphone. And everything worked fine on that phone.

Can anyone tell me where ecatly this microphone is, and does anyone have a clue what can be wrong? Thanks!

The microphone for calls is on the Lightning cable. Its not uncommon at all for them to go bad. Its not common for both to go out at once but...I've seen weirder things.

Replace the Lightning cable and you should be all set.

Oh man. I feel so dumb now. This thing has been bothering me so much. I have been reassembling the front face mic like 10 times now.. And the microphone that i am looking for is not even there!! Everything makes so sense now. THANK YOU!

I changed the lightning connector a while back, as i didnt get any signal on it. I will look into if i have placed it wrong. Or the part could be faulty. Anyways, thank you so much. I guess i will write this into my book of experience. Thank you sir!


It's really no big deal.

There is a bracket that holds the mic in place, make sure it's there. Also make sure no fuzz got in front of the mic, that happens a lot when fixing lightning ports. The opening for sound is just a pin hole, so it doesn't take much to block it.
