Okay well, there can be a few possibilities :
1) Your microphone is muted. May be you mute it accidentally while you are on phone. Or maybe you've made some changes to your hardware recently but installing some app- all in all just make sure the microphone isn't muted.
2) Your phone microphone is damaged. In that case you need to get it repaired from a nearby mobile center. If you still have your phone under warranty then you can get it replaced by the company itself.
One way to check whether your mic is broken or not is try using earphones with a mic. See if the other person is able to hear or not.
Do try to reboot your phone. That sometimes fixes the problem.
If that doesn't seem to work,
Long press the menu button to access "google now" page. Hitting menu again gives settings option. From there, disable voice open for OK google.
You may have accidentally pressed the Mute button. Undo as below
Mute a Call:
You can talk to someone nearby without letting the caller hear you during a call. During a call: Press <C> t o mute the microphone and "MUTED" will display on the LCD.
Your caller cannot hear you. Press <C> again to unmute the microphone.
You're on a laptop and it's talking about a sound card?
If you can hear audio or the voice from the caller then you don't need a sound card.
Yes you can purchase an external mic and it just plugs into the mic port on your system. I think that might be why the caller can't hear you. All computers do not come with a built in microphone. And if you are skyping and using a web cam, all web cams don't have a built in microphone.
I have found the microphone in the handset becomes defective after a number of years making it hard for the caller to hear. The only solution is to change the electric condenser microphone (talk peice} parts I use to get from Radio Shack that may not be available anymore, and solder work will be required.
Please remove the condenser microphone and take it any service shop or spare parts shop to get a replacement. Unfortunately we are creating more junk in our World by throwing away such electronic units when most of them can be repaired and used.
You can slavage this from any old set but since time is our greatest enemy we tend to choose the short way. I hope you try to get this and try to get this replaced and working. Hope I could help this way/ Good day
Firs of all I like to remind you the model that you have doesn't come with integrated microphone. However It will work any standard PC microphone that you can obtain around few dollars or less from IT stores. All you need to plug the microphone to the right side second socket socket as illustrated below
If issue persist please post further I will provide assistance accordingly
