Microphone not working

Hi All, I'm getting pretty hacked off with the 6340 I bought recently off ebay.The microphone doesn't seem to work. If I try recording it is silent and in phone mode,the mute/unmute button on the bottom is greyed out as if the microphone is not installed.There doesn't appear to be anything in the settings to switch the mic on or off. I bought this to use as a mobile phone and without the mic working it is more or less useless.I would really appreciate any help from anyone. Regards peter3696

You should try a ROM upgrade. THis problem may have occured if you have a corrupted ROM memory. If for my first choice.. hmm.. It isn't hardware, in my opinion. Try the ROM update first. Save all your important data (no back-up) only save the files to the computer, then have the PDA's battery fully charged, make an active sync connection using USB sync cable (bluetooth, or IR woun't work) and open the ROM update file. For a ROM update, use the oficial HP ROM versions. Here is a link to the wm2003 version. It is the only one that HP distributes free of any charges. Folow the instructions carefully. In that list select and download : HP iPAQ h6300 Pocket PC Series ROM Update (English Languages Support Only) Good luck, fell free to ask any other question about this process or others and always remember to rate solutions. :)

Nikon fm manual

A sync cord between the camera and the flash is usually more reliable than the hot shoe. Before getting a cord though try cleaning the contact in the middle of the hot shoe and the contact on the bottom of the flash with an ink pen eraser. They are more aggressive than a pencil eraser but still won't hurt the metal contacts.

Ds lite microphone not working. help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi, The Ds microphone is relatively straight forward to replace and can be bought on eBay etc if you wished to fix it yourself. Alternatively if you contact a local DS retailer they will be able to put you in contact with nintendo who will fix it for a fee.

I don't know of anyway to bypass the activities in any games reliant on the microphone.
