1- Is the problem really with your phone's microphone?

When the speaker on the other end of the call tells you that your voice has disappeared, keep an eye on the location of your fingers, as some people inadvertently put their fingers into the mic without noticing.

For some users it may interfere between the network problem and the microphone problem, some areas suffer from a clear weakness in the network that prevents the other party from hearing you well, try moving to another place 

2- Restart your smartphone

Rebooting the device is always the most valuable, popular and most effective advice, most of the Android problems you may encounter are not actual problems, but just temporary system failures, and once you restart your phone, the problem disappears.

  • Press and hold the power button (on the side of the phone)
  • Choose "restart"
  • Then retest the microphone by making a call

If the microphone issue persists, try turning off your device for a few minutes

  • Press and hold the power button (right of the phone)
  • Choose "power off" 
  • After the screen turns black, wait a few minutes and then press and hold the power button until the screen lights up again and the device turns on.

3- Try disabling noise reduction

With the development of Android phones, many important features have developed, including the noise reduction feature during calls, a feature that automatically reduces background sounds during calls, but unfortunately, sometimes an error occurs in this new feature and is the reason for the phone’s microphone to malfunction, so we advise you to try to Disable the feature and test the microphone afterwards.

4- Clean the microphone hole

A clogged microphone hole due to dust does not happen overnight, but with prolonged use of the phone, dirt accumulates over time We show you the proper way to clean safely.

  • Locate the microphone in your phone - you can search on Google by typing "phone microphone location - model-) and it will show you pictures showing the location of the microphone
  • Using a clean, thin, soft brush such as a paintbrush
  • Move the brush tips slowly and very carefully, trying to get the dirt out
  • You can use a fine needle, but be careful not to spoil the microphone - ask a phone shop to clean the phone slots safely

 5- Get rid of microphones disable apps

Have you downloaded any apps recently? Some malicious applications cause the microphone to be disabled. To check, activate the Safe mode, which offers you the option to use your phone in the basic version without any programs, and you can then make a call and test whether the microphone is back to work or not.

If your phone microphone is fixed in safe mode and you can't remember which app is causing the problem, you will need to do a factory reset which will restore your phone to its default settings but will delete all your data.
