Nokia Lumia 1020 with Windows 8.1 Microphone fails to work with any applications. RRS feed

  • Question

  • This seems to be a windows 8.1 error, after googling this everyone with 920, 1020 and 720 seems to have problems with their microphone recording anything but static in any application.

    This includes no sound input (microphone) for these.

    * Built-in in video recording applications.

    * Guitar Tuna - Guitar Tuner Application.

    * Cortana

    * Accurate Free Tuner - Another Guitar Tuner App.

    * Shazam

    * Any app that used to work with microphone now fails basically!!

    Its bad enough there is no snapchat for windows phones, but this is unbelievable to not work for so many apps.

    Yet Voice calls still work, so I know its not the Microphone and this was brand new in box a week ago..

    Is its a security update to block all things from using the microphone or the fact I think it may be a secondary microphone and its not loading it correctly?

    Please issue an update this has been around as a problem since 2014 ffs..
