After Headphone Jack replacement: Headphone mic not working
I had to replace the headphone jack because of a faulty mute switch.
I had a lot of scratches on the back of the phone, so I thought it might be a good idea to replace the rear panel as well.
After installing the new parts (thanx to ifixit!!!) everything was working except for the headphone mic and the headphone volume buttons.
My fist thought was I've bought a faulty headphone jack flex cable. So a disassembled the whole thing again, replaced the jack with another one - only to find out that I have the same problem.
Thinking that it is very unlikely that both parts are faulty I connected the no. 5 connector of the flex cable i just took out (the first replacement part not the original one), plugged my headphones in and guess what: Mic and volume buttons are working. So everything is working when the flex cable is not fitted into the phone, but once it is fitted mic and volume buttons are not working.
I would very much appreciate any help!!! :-)
Is this a good question?
