    Why not get an ipad microphone. Google it and you will get several hits.

    Thanks for the PM and I'm glad you had at least partial success with the vacuum method. All I can think is that you are maybe moving the obstruction and over time it is settling back into place and causing the same physical obstruction again.

    So all I can really suggest is to keep trying the same thing again in the hope that you dislodge it and remove it completely on one attempt. Sorry I can't be of any more help, but I culled this advice from elsewhere, and have been suggesting it since it is known to work.

    I had a problem with mine.. The mike just recorded static. I finally took it back to apple and they just replaced my iPad 2 with a new one.

    Linda ,, i can get it back to apple and catch new one but it take a lot of time and maybe the new one have a new issue i wouldn't know it :)
    so this one have little problem and i could solve it by vacuum every 3 days or leave it and use external mic

    Apple said they will replace mine but I'm worried that it is refurbished and not in as good a shape as mine. Should I just keep mine warrenty up in a month.
