The Microphone of my Galaxy S5 doesn’t appear to be working after exposing the device in Water?

Last Update date : 2014.10.16



Q : When I try to call after exposing my Galaxy S5 underwater, the other person cannot hear my voice.
What should I do?

A : If the device has been immersed in water or the microphone or the speaker is wet, sound may not be heard clearly during a call because water may get in the microphone hole during exposure underwater.

If upper phenomenon happen or the device gets wet after getting out the water , Please wipe device smoothly with a clean , soft cloth and keep putting during certain period of time to dry the device.

Once device has dried, try again.
