Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100
Hi, So as was stated--- washed my blackberry on a full washing machine cycle! The phone turns on and works after 3 days of drying.
My problem is the microphone is shot. Noone can hear me unless I yell into the port. I can use a headset but I'd rather try and fix the phone myself.
Does anyone know where I could get an 8130 microphone replacement other then buying a whole 'parts phone' on ebay for over 150$? And has anyone gone about doing this repair on their own. Is there anything I should worry about or is it all pretty straightforward, remove the damaged mic and insert the new one?

Thank you, cellphoneer. The one that describes how to replace the screen is the closest they come to talking about the mic. However, it should provide enough info to get the job done. Here is a direct link: http://www.youtube.com/v/NQxMmsrnwfU

Carefull guys bcoz i did same as they showed in video. person who opened blackberry should have mentioned it that there are more chances of wrecking your microphone Integrated circuit (microphone band) that goes beneath bottom of band case..

Oh no.. and you just bought it! I've decided I need to buy a new phone-- this is too much of a hassle as not only is the mic not working, neither will the battery charge through the phone! It shorts out.. even after taking it to get the rust removed/rust prevention spray. New BB for me :(.
At least mine had a longer warranty-full life...
So sorry to hear about yours !
