My audio wont play properly

I noticed when i call or someone calls me they cant hear anything on my end. I did not notice anything for a while then called and called my friend until it magically worked again. Then i called her again and it wont work again. I later discovered that if i use headphones or loudspeaker during calls i can be hears perfectly. Then i tried recording my voice I can be heard but at a very low low low volume. I tried blowing into my mic when recording. When I play my record it recoreded the blowing sound. I tried sound about. The only thing it did 'i think' is when i make a call im automatically on loudspeaker. Wont work for the earphones option. But when i use my earphones it works fine. Then i still tested alot of random things. When using my earphonea when recording it records perfectly. Then this happend: when i record video then play no sounds what so ever. But when i plug my earphones the sounds suddenly appear. Then when i remove my earphones from the jack there is still sound but when recorded then played nothing! Please help :(

Re: My audio wont play properly

Welcome to Android Central! Which phone is it? It certainly sounds like there's a problem with the phone mic. Make sure it isn't blocked or clogged by any debris, like lint. The phone mic is usually a little pinhole, so it's possible for stuff to get caught in there. Use a brush with soft bristles to make sure it's clear (or use a can of compressed air to blow it out).
