    Hi folks,

    I 'd like to know if anyone thinks this is hardware or software related.

    My mic randomly stopped working. When you make a call, the other person hears a digital ticking sound.

    This is where things get weird,

    -When you record a video, you get the same ticking sounds

    -If I dismantle the phone and remove the ribbon cable for the bottom speaker, the ticking noise is gone when I record a video. If I play a previously recorded video that made only ticking sounds there is suddenly an audio track

    - If I make a call with the lower speaker ribbon cable disconnected I still get only ticking sounds on the other end (yet I can record video perfectly)

    I have now replaced the bottom speaker. No improvement.

    - When my alarm goes off in the morning, all I get is a ticking sound

    - If I use the stopwatch or play music, I get audible normal sounds

    WTF.... so do you believe it is hardware or software related?

    I recently replaced the usb port. I'm unsure if this had anything to do with it.

    Thank you.
