Nokia 5200 Microphone not working

Nokia 5200 Microphone not working

Hi.
I have a Nokia 5200. Very similar to 5300. I can make and receive calls without any problems. The other party can not hear my voice replies at all. I can hear them , only. It a one sided conversation ... I can hear them but they do not hear my replies. The phone will not also record any voice memo messages. The speakers work. I can play music and hear it. PPT is disabled. I have reset the phone to factory setting and even held down the Push To Talk button but still no one hears my voice. If I press any key-pad number to generate a tone ...this is heard by the other person at there end. I think the microphone is damaged. The hole is clear and no updated have ever been flashed on the phone.
Any idea how to fix it ? I live in Vancouver, BC. V5V-2K4.
Canada. Area code 604. I am on a Rogers cellular plan but purchase the phone overs seas in Asia. It is not under warranty. Any Idea if I can replace any parts my-self...If sp where do I buy them.

Re: Nokia 5200 Microphone not working

At one time the phone did work perfectly for about 6 months. Never had any problems with it. One day it just stopped working. All functions work 100% EXCEPT that I am unable to get people to hear my voice. I can only hear there end of the conversation. They can not hear me at all...not even fainlty. I am in Canada in Vancouver, BC. v5v-2k4

Thank you. March 18,2007

Re: Nokia 5200 Microphone not working

I would suggest u take it to your local NOKIA support centre to see if they can repair and get a cost ratherHGER than trying to faff about getting parts and doing it ourself - it may work out cheaper for you!

If its something you've not fixed or done yourself before, i wouldn't tackle it yourself you might cause more damage or more work to be done. (just advice to keep on the safe side) :smileyhappy:

Get a quote from a repair centre and take it from there.

Re: Nokia 5200 Microphone not working

The problem is likely to be the Mic. It is located inside the face and so people tend to remove or change the faces without moving the Mic to the new face. My suggestion is to either locate your old Face if you have changed it or buy a new Mic from a phone shop. It is extremely easy to put it back in so i would suggest doing is yourself, just be careful as it is VERY delicate. I hope this helps! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Nokia 5200 Microphone not working

My problem is very similar, my mic doesnt work, not the recorder neither in callings. But really isnt the mic itself, the mic is working i tested it in another phone, it is ok. Moreover i changed the mic in the mokia 5200 but stills without working. Someone told me its a problem of codecs of sounds. with some code (asterik-number-code-number) is deactivated and activated the mic as it happenss in many models of many brands of phones. Ive searched in blogs and forum for codes to activate the codes, so i got the *(number)3370(number) andother ones, but they dont activate the mic. Im ready to try flashing the phone, erasing the software and loading it again. Perhaps it could serve......
