IPhone 6s - microphone does not work on all applications except camera and calls

Hey, I don't know exactly know what happened with my phone. Suddenly, my microphone work on LINE, Whatsapp and almost all other applications that use mic. Except, camera and when someone call me on my number.

But it does not work on whatsapp and LINE calls. And it also does not work when I snapchat. Only works on the default camera Apps and call through my number.

I tried:

-restart my phone

-hard reset and blink? Reset with the power and the "home" button.

-read the micro support page. Still no solution.

TL; Dr:

my microphone does not work on every apps on my phone except calls through number and approx. of default camera it gives you just that silence when I play it on voice notes. But it works when I record yourself using videos on the default camera app.

Hello Bllacke,

Thank you for using communities of Apple Support.

I see from your post, some applications have a problem to access your Microphone. I know how it is important to ensure that your applications have access to the Microphone and can use this feature. I have a few things I want to try.

First, tap Settings on your iPhone and then scroll to the last section that lists your apps. Select the applications that use the microphone and make sure that the Microphone is activated (green).

Then, follow the steps in the article below to close these applications:

Force a nearby application on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

Then, test the microphone in these applications again and see if it works.

Best regards.

  • iPhone iOS 9.3.2. Microphone does not work in some applications.

    MIC on iPhone 5 has stopped working.  Software not hardware.  First noticed when the other party could not hear me on a phone call.  Incoming or outgoing calls - hear the other party, but they don't hear me.  Voice memo does not work... doesn't detect any sounds.  Voice memo and calls work when headset inserted.   HOWEVER, Siri and voice command work very well without a helmet.  Therefore Mic works = no material.

    I have reset all settings - off one - there is sufficient space free etc etc.  Wanted to ask this forum for ideas before the reset complete of your data.  I see that there are problems with the iOS updates.  Not sure on the timing of the question as the phone is used by my 12 year old son.

    Any suggestion is appreciated.

  • Libraries does not work in all applications

    My libraries are no longer accepting or releasing new items. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the programs, as well as I have disabled the firewall and reset the permissions. The libraries window looks normal, but the icons to add items are grayed out. If I slip and fall, the window darkens as if acceptance of the item, and then has no effect. If I'm in indesign and try to use beautiful theme color tool add to the Library button, nothing happens. In photoshop, click New Document Library also does nothing. Here is a screenshot of Indesign, Illustrator, and open Photoshop. You can see the icons greyed out. You can also see that they worked once.

    Any help?

  • iPhone 5 s microphone does not work during phone call

    Hello! My iphone 5s works really well, sensors, speaker, camera, all right. Similarly, the microphone works really well when I make a call using 'whassapp', 'line', etc and I can record video, talking to Siri, using voice memo and once more my microphone works really well. BUT! When I make call and receive phone call my microphone does not work, they do not hear my voice at all. What will happen with my microphone when you use the cell phone call? HELP ME PLEASE!

    Try resetting your device. This will not erase your data stored on that device.

    • Press and hold the sleep/wake button
    • Press and hold the Home button
    • Press and hold both buttons until the display turns off and on again with the Apple logo on the subject.

    Alternatively, you can go to settings - general - reset - Reset all settings

    If that doesn't work, restore your device to factory settings. Please note that this will delete the data on your device.

    Take a look this Apple Support article: use iTunes to restore the iPhone, iPad or iPod to factory settings - Apple Support.

    As a final step, try recovery mode. Turn off your unit, then plug it to your computer with the hold home button. Hold down Home button until you see the logo of iTunes on the screen of your device. After that on your computer, you should see the iTunes window saying that your device needs to be restored to factory settings. Click Restore.

    If these steps do not work, contact Apple and ask for help.

  • Satellite A200 - 1 MB microphone does not work on Windows XP

    Hi all.

    I buy a Satellite A200 - 1 MB and when I install Windows XP everything was ok except a little problem:
    The microphone does not work.

    I installed all the drivers correctly, but the problem is the same.
    I read on the internet that many owners A200 - 1 MB have the same problem.

    Is one know how I can fix the problem?
    Thank you

    It's very strange. I installed Windows XP Home SP2 on Satellite U300 edition. It's the same laptop fine but a bit smaller and in my case works cam and microphone. I tested it with Skype. The sound quality is not very good, but it works.

    Are you trying to test also with Skype? Did you check the sound options?

  • Microphone does not work under Windows XP Home - P100

    Hi all

    I am a new user of French a P100-473 series and games. I have it downgrade to Windows XP Home edition for the goal of the game.

    I use conexant high definition driver v 3.11 and its working fine but not the microphone plug on the front of the laptop. I tried all the driver conexant Web 3.12 3.14 and after and the problem is reversed, the microphone does not work very well "using the audio msn Configurator" but I have no sound.

    The driver is working properly, no error, but not sound under windows. Does anyone have a solution for me?
    I have worked on this for 1 week and I really want to resolve the thing, because the cell phone is a great product and on vista, it works like a 486.
    Thank you very much



    On the Toshiba download page there is unfortunately no driver audio Windows XP Home edition for this laptop preinstalled Vista. Read some other assignments that I found the same reports sound works but mic cannot be used.

    Sorry, but it is clear at the moment, there is no solution to this stupid attachment problem. :(

    Just one last thing: try to install your own Vista without Toshiba has designed tools and utilities and let me know how your P100. ;)

  • Satellite L50 - A - 16 H - Webcam + microphone does not work


    I have a laptop Satellite L50 - A - 16: updating win8.1 64 bit.
    When I got this new laptop everything worked fine, but later it stopped working.
    I sent it to Toshiba for repair and ofcouse they made and works (the MB has been replaced?), but now, I noticed that my webcam and my microphone does not work. If I try to open the camera it says 'connect a camera' or on Skype, he asks the same thing.

    I read in the forums to look at the BIOS to enable, but there is no activation/deactivation button.
    I tried to search for a driver for the Webcam in the Toshiba site but I couldn't find: c
    and the microphone "working normally" but I when I try to call my friends can't hear me.

    I hope someone can help me with this problem, thank you very much :)

    You know what: best thing you can do as the ultimate test is to backup all your data and reinstall the original recovery image. By default the BIOS settings and install recovery image.
    After ding that you will have to re-buy factory and absolutely identical situation after laptop settings.
    Please test and send feedback.

    In my opinion, if the problem persists it could be hardware related issue. Maybe is cam not connected correctly.

  • X121e microphone does not work

    Hi all. Dear support team, unfortunately my microphone does not work. I tried generic Windows 7 pilots and several different drivers of lenovo web site. I'm starting to suspect that my mic is just broken. Could you please point me in the right direction, where can I find the latest driver for the sound card in my laptop. Thank you in advance.

    Looks like this:

    If you want to test your hardware, try a live bootable Linux environment and see if it works there. If this isn't the case, then it is likely physically broken.

    Hi again, matanm

    At this point, I would contact service customer in Israel, that I can't think of any other software issue which could be responsible for this. It is also reinforced by the fact that the microphone did not work since you bought the machine. The number of support for Israel is + 972-3-531-3900.
