Microphone not recording audio
I have an iPad mini 2 which I bought in need of a new LCD and digitiser. It was for a customer who promptly came back the next day and said that there was no sound on her video recordings. After trying various fixes and workarounds, i discovered that the audio jack output is not working either. It does play sound from the built in speakers though so that is why I missed it the first time.
I reluctantly removed the touch screen and display and I have fitted a new microphone but the problem remains.
I have tried an external microphone via a lightning port to aux/headphone adapter and it still doesn't work.
I have lost count of the hours and cash aI have invested in this thing and it is a frustrating and infuriating mystery. I repair these things and other hand held devices for a living but this has got me beat so far.....
This must have happened to other people and there must be a definitive solution.
I hope so.....
Thanks in advance
Is this a good question?
