Internal mic not working properly since upgrade of NVME SSD
When I upgraded my iMac with an SSD, I managed to cover up the mic input with the adhesive tape kit I bought from Amazon. Mac had moved the mic on the Mid 2017 model!
I re-opened the iMac and took out all the internals, and replaced the NVME drive while I was at it. I pulled the tape off the microphone and reassembled. I had a lot of trouble reattaching the microphone cable, but eventually got there by use of a magnifying glass. I’m not 100% confident that it was a perfect fit, but upon reassembly The microphone seems to work, BUT not to full efficiency. It sounds like I’m in the bathroom. What could be wrong?
1) It seems sensible that if I did not put the ribbon back correctly there would be no sound at all, not inefficient sound. Could it be that I did not clear up the gunk from the mike slot?
2) With FaceTime, the sound simply isn’t great. But Zoom tends to reduce its recording level right in front of me! Zoom has a setting which automatically reduces the volume almost down to 0 while I’m talking! I have now turned it off and this seems to work to a degree, but the sound is still appalling. I cannot get any sound when trying to share my screen. Feels like a software issue… Is there a setting that I need to reset. SMC? PRAM?
3) Do I replace the mic. Could I have dislodged or broken it when I took the motherboard out? (I don’t think I did)
Es esta una buena pregunta?
