    Is there someone who might be able to tell me why my mic no longer works after my V30 was in water. Is there a way to fix it?

    Most probably water damage.

    And the best way to fix it is to get it repaired.

    How long after it was in the water? It might need to dry out a bit.

    Once a phone gets water inside it, if you don't correct the problem in minutes at the latest, it's a goner. Maybe not now, but the minerals in the water will keep eating at the copper and other metals in the phone until you have missing circuits and shorts.

    Read Oh, no! My Phone got Wet! for the next time you want to take your phone near water (which includes the bathroom).

    I agree but the V30 is water resistant and the mic should still work unless it was exposed beyond the rating.

    Resistance to being IN water yes. Resistant to even a little splash or pressure when it's immersed? They don't warn you about that.

    Thank you all for the responses. The phone was taken in for repairs.

    What about IP 68 rating?

    We don't know the type of exposure.
