    So a couple of days ago my microphone on my iPad was working fine and today it's just started recording static which is really annoying, anybody know anything that I could do? P.s. my iPad is out of warranty, literally a week ago :(

    I am new hear so this is just a suggestion. Another thread told the person to check the mic for dust and that was the problem. Once cleared the mic worked fine.

    Use the vacuum and suck the heck out of the mic for about a minute or so. Seal the best you can between the hose and the iPad edge.

    That will fix the microphone issue for sure. It does take minute or so for the fix to work

    It's on the top edge of the iPad,half way between the sleep/wake button and the headphone jack.

    Mine never did record, but the Genius said "if you yell into it, it works a little, since it's 6mo in use ...no replacement or repair.

    I need a help/ suggestion... I just realize right now, I can't record video with sound. All sound I made during recording the video can be take into the video....
    Before I change my iOS into iOS 5.1 , my mic worked properly. I use iOS 4.3.4 before, then I decide to change the iOS. I change it in Apple Premium Reseller Store.
    Anyone know what's happen with my device?
