Customer Question
My grandson has my old...
My grandson has my old Samsung Galaxy S5. It works fine for me for over a year than I got the 7 do I gave home the Galaxy 5. He has had it for over a year now. Back in late October it got a little wet. Not much but we opened it, (remove cover) and next day it was working fine except the voice part. When he calls me or I call him he has to use speaker phone or a headset that allows him to hear me and I can hear him. I hate to get a new phone because this phone id's still like new in mint conditioin except what I just explained to you. Please tell me how we can for it? Thank you.

Part of the internal circuit board may have short-circuited when it got wet, and this has affected how the microphone is working.

The phone can be repaired, however a repair is likely to cost around $75 or more depending on how long it takes.

A local phone repair shop or electronics repair shop can carry out this repair for you.
