Can't use little microphone

    On the screen keyboard and on Google Search there is a tiny microphone icon. When I click it, it comes up and I get the Speak Now window. I speak. The microphone flickers. I briefly get the chart where the lines go up and down, and THEN I get a Connection problem window which invites me to Speak again or Cancel.

    I have an
    • LG Optimus V
    • PRL Version (61007)
    • Android Version 2.2.1
    • Model Number VM670
    • Kernel Version 2.6.32.9
    • Build Number FRG83
    • SW Version VM670ZV4
    • HW Version 1.2
    For a very brief time, I was also unable to use the keyboard to compose a text message. This occurred after the microphone problem started. I can receive texts. I tried a soft reset - removing the battery when the phone was unplugged - but that didn't do anything. Later I tried removing the battery while the phone was running. This FIXED entering text messages using the keyboard :)

    I am considering next steps. I imagine the suggestion is going to be - get a new phone :) But I love my phone. I HATE the hugeness of the new smartphone screens. They don't go in a pocket or my fanny pack. And my current plan is perfection. So I continue to work on a fix.

    I have synchronized my phone contacts with my Gmail account - the cloud? Anything else I can part with.

    Before I do a factory reset, I want to find out what this "Can't connect" message is referring to. What is the phone trying to connect to? (These problems do not resolve if I turn on Wifi or Bluetooth.) My 3G and network signals indicate that all is well. Has Android got a new connection location? If so, is there a way I can redirect to that?

    The Default engine (and only engine listed) for speech synthesis is listed as PicoTTS.

    If there are any other questions I should answer, just ask.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    This phone is from 2011.
    Have you tried updating your apps from the play store?
    Google isn't connecting because the app needs to be updated is my guess...
    I would hold off on a factory reset until you update first
