kitesurfrules Works perfectly, been going solid now for 2 weeks, you saved me a lot of cash for a few minutes work. John Lawler This worked like a charm, I thought I was going to break it during the process but I worked very carefully and took my time and followed the video. All the tools you need is the weird pentalope and a small phillips and flat head. Also used a guitar pick taped to a pencil for the prying. Worked pretty well! Thanks for the video!You can also read our article on iPhone 4 audio problem: fixing an audio compiler chip fault .

John Lewis Fair warning.. if you're not somewhat familiar with how to work on electronics that are small and sensitive then you really should not attempt this operation. i.e. if you are unaware of how easy it is to generate electrostatic charges and how to dissipate them properly.If you encounter this problem, don’t hesitate to get in touch. Give us a call on 020 7078 4341, or just book an appointment for an iPhone 4 microphone repair. Then leave the rest to us. We’ll do our best to help. P.S. The problem is not so common on iPhone 4S, but when it happens, our technicians advise that it has to be handled a bit differently. We haven't found the perfect solution just yet, but we’re working on it!
