Question about Cell Phones

My wife washed her LG rumor. Everything works but the microphone. I have figured out how to disassemble it and can see the microphone component, what can I do to get it working. This is the second rumor that has been washed and had this problem.

    I have already run it under 2 fans for an hour, it works because I can hear it produce very loud noises faintly. I need the microphone to work @ normal sound levels.

    the phone is 2 days old, it hasn't been dropped yet, I am not certain if it could sustain a shock in the pocket while in the washer. We have the new style low impact washing machine. I would like to know what I can do to make this microphone work.

The speaker for the mic has been damaged due to the water.
speakers and water dont mix too well. if you want to continue using it you will have to replace it yourself, or pay your service provider to do it for you. may cost a leg or 2
ebay is famous for finding parts for anything, type in your phone and model and the part your looking for. with a little ambition, research and a torx set you can take the phone apart and do it yourself !
let me know how you make out

Hello,
Well if a microphone is exposed to to much vibration shock it can shatter the diaphragm that is in the microphone, which is crucial to how it works. In my opinion I would attempt to use the fan trick, and if that does not work I would call the phone manufacturer.

Hello kent581,
take out the mic and dry it properly. make sure it is completely dry with no moisture, then reassemble it. If you are lucky, it will work again as long as there are no bridging of cables by the liquid that got into it. If it does not work, you may have to get another mic to replace it. cheers!!!

How to fix screen on lg rumor 2


Hello,

What you need to do is to get a screw driver, open the phone and remove the flex that connect the screen to the panel and put it back.

If the problem continues, then you have to change the screen with a good one.

Thanks

People cannot hear me when i call them - have a LG rumor 2 phone. I can hear them when the call is connected, but they just hear silence


Hello.

Be certain to check that Mute is unselected.

Also, try to reset by removing and reinserting the battery.

If still a problem and you are comfortable, take your phone apart and be certain that the contacts are centered and the microphone is OK.

Hope this helps.

The screen on my Rumor LG freezes up and doesnt allow me to do anything i tried turing it off and it does the same thing


Try doing the software update. Menu, tools, firmware update. If this doesn't work, I'd try resetting it which will cause you to LOSE everything so make sure everything is backed up. Check for water damage.

My wife and I had the same problem with our LG Rumor phones. In both cases, we removed the mini SD card that was inserted in our phones, re-started the phones and it worked! My wife put her SD card back in after start-up without problems since.
