I really don't have the time to pursue this to the next level. But I might just make the time. This is ridiculous that Google is not helping with this problem.

@lucianobuszmicz This seems to be a common issue with the Pixel 7. I've linked a thread here that you may find helpful. Someone suggests cleaning out the microphone hole with first a vacuum then blowing air into it. It is possible that during the screen replacement process, some finger dirt or perhaps adhesive from the screen got into the microphone.

Hi @dannish,

Wouldn't a blocked microphone hole also prevent the microphone from working properly on calls?

The OP says it does work but only on calls, nothing else. Presumably they're not using the phone in speaker mode on calls when saying this

by

@jayeff That's what I thought until I read the thread, apparently certain software on that phone uses both top and bottom mics, some only use 1. So those which rely on 1 mic will be completely unusable, but those which use both still work. It's odd but the solution on there seems popular.

I've experienced OCA getting into a speaker and dulling the sound quite significantly during a phone screen repair myself so it could be possible for mics as well. Mic holes are even smaller than earpiece speaker holes so that could just be it.

@dannish

Fair enough.

Cheers

I tried this fix but still no luck. It would appear after replacing my screen with an Ifixit OEM screen, my bottom mic no longer works. I was quite careful during the replacement. Is it possible I broke something internally? Everything else seems to function normally except the bottom mic.

Maybe it's when we updated the fingerprint sensor with win10 drivers ?
