Hey, yesterday my mic was working on my KOSS SB45, then i ws gonna go off the pc, and i accidentally(clumsy me :( ) "Pulled" when i was walkin off and the headset fell on the floor. And now the microphone aint working when i go on the ventrilo..I've tried to plug it out, then shut down pc, then put it back in and turn pc on but so far it doesn't seem to be working..I tried with "test hardware" but the "sound levels" aren't moving at all, like if the headset isn't plugged in..
Is there anything i can do , or is my mic dead? :S
So im wondering how i should fix it..i was thinking to open it up and see if there is anything i can do there.

First of, relax. Aint gonna get anything done in "Panic" mode.
Secondly, if it was a PC or Notebook I would say F8. Since its a tablet, the options are different.
My sincere solution for this and the next virus encountered.
1) Get into your favorite search engine
a) Tablet Brand
b) Table Model
c) Safe Mode
3) Sometimes search engine yield better results

WOW this is an expensive camera, I would first HIGHLY recomend spending the money and send it to a good electronics or camera shop and have them fix it.
If this is not an option here are a couple or things you can do. Since this is a higher end camera it
should have a mic jack, if so just hook in a good microphone and it should work fine.
A couple of words of warning before tying the next solution you could permanetly mess up your
cameras sound. While this method theoretically possible, some companies intentionally make this
very hard. Often companies will use hair thin wires or wires that are so short thier is no way to
patch into them. Also, since this description doesn't use standard hardware you should disclose
this repair to anyone who might wish to buy the equipment if you decide to sell it. Also, the mic
that I've suggested may not be as good of quality as the original Sony. You can use
any mic of about the same size so long as it has wires to tie into.
If your not real familiar with electronics get a buddy with some experience repairing electronics to help.
If your really adventurous, you could take the mic assembly apart and put in a new mic. Just get a good compact mic like a KOSS M5 and splice off the end then shave the wires. Then carefully
take the mic assembly on you camera apart look for a small disk made of two magnets an a
fillament with 2 wires disconect the wires from the disk and hook them up to the shaved wires
from the KOSS microphone (one wire from a lead the other to the ground of the KOSS microphone). The KOSS mic will have 3 wires two sources/leads and a ground you might have to play around with it to figure out the wires and get it working properly. If your mic assembly has 2 mics figure out which wires are the lead by hooking them up one at a time (to the wires that originally were hooked to the internal microphones) with the ground on the other wire and trying them. Once you figure out which are the lead wires hook them each up to the old mic wires and take the other side and hook them both up to the ground. once you have it all wired back up and any splices insulated (elecrical tape should be fine) you should be able to re assemble the mic with the new microphones installed.
If the mics for the camea are intergrated into a circuit board the same method will work but
the old mics will need to be desoldered and the leads from the new mic will need to be soldered
where the old mics were. If this is the case get a buddy with some experience with electronics to help you.
Method three use an external recorder. For this method just record the sound with another external
device like a digital voice recorder then use an editing program like Sony Vegas to add the sound to your video. The hard part is syncronization. A clicker may help create sound tags to align the video with the audio with the sound.
