Any one who can provide solutions?????

Re: Main Microphone issue!!!

Soft reset the phone by:

Settings>Privacy>Settings Reset

This resotres the live wallpaper again so then you must remove live wallpaper by using a different wallpaper from gallery. It should solve the problem once and for all. Same thing happened to me twice, this is how I solved it.

Re: Main Microphone issue!!!

I haven't heard of any cases where the mic is effected anyway on the Xperia U.

Sounds like it would be wise to try performing a repair of your phone's software.

You can easily perform the interaction with our program Sony PC Companion, availalbe for download from the link below.

Re: Main Microphone issue!!!

Hey Guys!!!!

I had taken to sony authorised service centre.

There the phone started working normally. The service person also claimed that he has run diagnostics and there is no hardware issue. I even talked for quite some time and there was no issue.

But today morning again the microphone issue has returned!!!!

The Customer support is giving sloppy replies that i need to keep taking the phone for service....there is no other option.

Can any one help me with wha might be the exact problem.

Regards,

AnDy

Re: Main Microphone issue!!!

step 1: remove live wallpaper

step 2: Do a settings reset (Soft Reset) from Settings. All data will remain just the settings will be reset.

step 3: remove the live wallpaper, click a picture of u and ur friends rather and use it as wallpaper. Smile big in the picture...Slightly smiling Face

Good Luck.

Re: Main Microphone issue!!!

It will help as long as you dont use a live wallpaper. I have not felt the problem for 2 months now.

Re: Main Microphone issue!!!

But i am just wondering why this problem did not start earlier when i updated firmware two months back.

but any ways i guess ICS update will resolve this problem once and for all.
