Microphone is very quiet

I replaced the screen and frame on a Sony Xperia X compact and since then when calling someone the other person sometimes can't really hear me good, sometimes it works fine and a second later it is very quiet and just doesn't work like it should.

What could the problem be? I already took the phone apart again and looked if there was any dust or something between the microphone (I hope it was the microphone, on the bottom right side of the mainboard?) and the screen but I didn't see anything.

Is it even possible to replace the microphone?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I think that the microphone and bottom loudspeaker are in the same assembly, maybe you blocked the sound shaft in the screen replacement?

I think you damaged your microphone when you changed your screen. You can dial the Sony test code *#*#7378423#*#* in the dialer, and test the microphone. Sony x compact have two microphone, their position is next to the headphone jack and the usb port, you can see this Sony xperia x compact teardown video, the microphone is fixed on the motherboard, it is non-removable.

If you need to replace the microphone, you need to bring your XA phone to the repair shop to replace.
