The mic is like a small speaker or piezo electric element that captures the physical signal (sound medium), this case sound waves created by your vocal chords. When you talk the coil vibrates next to a magnet and the AC voltage signal is sent to an amplifier circuit. The mic looks like a 7mm diameter black plastic pencil eraser. There is a hole in it and two gold plated contacts("fingers") whose flex assures secure contact the main board when the body halves are snapped together and then screwed. You must open up the phone. You will need a #6 Torx screw driver or tiny phillips head depending on the model, locate the mouthpiece module and clean the contacts. Reassemble and test. If still not working then remove it by prying it out carefully with a tiny flat head screwdriver There may be some two-sided, thin foam tape securing it to the main body half. Carefully remove it with a tint flathead screwdriver. Clean the contacts and measure the impedance, or DC resistance, of the mic. It should be 16 or 32 Ohms, but this does not mean the mic is working. There could be something sticking the voice coil from moving. If cleaning the contacts does not work then you really need another mic to test. You can try a cell repair shop that has hundreds of phones with dead main boards that have identical mouth piece modules. Ask if they will sell you one or you can order the part directly from the manufacturer. The other option is to just get a new phone because you never know what more water damaged components will fail in the future. While you have it apart perform the procedures below for reviving a wet cell phone. If you need specific instructions on disassembly for your model, go to Howard Forums and type your question and model number in the search bar. Every phone can be different. That’s where all of us phone geeks go to share information. Happy trailsJ

WET CELL PHONE
Take the battery out as soon as possible, remove the main board and soak it in alcohol (not Rum) for 10 to 15 seconds and hit it with some "blow off" duster in a can or tuner cleaner. The corrosion (whitish-green) around the legs (pins) of the chips and discrete components often renders the main board useless. You can try cleaning the corrosion off with soda water and a soft toothbrush and then spraying it out with some tuner cleaner. Take the rest apart and clean as best you can especially around the battery power input, using the method above. Let it dry overnight, reassemble it, say a prayer and turn it on. You may need a T6, a #6 Torx screwdriver. You can buy them at Sears/Craftsman individually for about $3.00. Best of luck to you.

The phone is ruined... you could try taking the battery out and letting it set in the sun for about 5 hours and then try it, but i would suggest getting a new phone!

Uniden 6.0 phone got wet.


If the phone got wet it will probably not work anymore. You might try tossing it in a bag of rice to dry it out completely. But in most cases, dropping the phone in water will ruin it.

How do you fix your phone it has gone blank


When phone is blank. There have been many incidents ofpeople accidentally dropping their cell phones into various bodies of water orother liquids. If this happens to you and your cell phone gets wet, you maythink at first that it is damaged beyond repair and dread the cost and hassleof replacing it. But with some resourceful thinking, in many cases it ispossible to save a wet cell phone if you take action quickly enough. 1. Wait it out. Yes, it's boring and will take a while, butthis is probably the safest method overall. Just let the phone sit out in a dryplace for at least three days while the water evaporates. A variation on thisthat might speed up the drying process slightly is to leave the phone on top ofa low heat source such as a television or cable box. 2. Put the phone in a bowl of dry rice. Many people havehad success with this one, and it makes sense because uncooked rice can absorba lot of water.

Hi,

There is a good chance that the phone will work once dried...but make sure it is totally dry (try to absord all water ad give it a few days to dry out) before attempting to turn on. If you take it part and dry out the parts...even better.
