    Re: Kyocera KE433 (Rave K7) Problem Solved!

    Originally posted by bzl

    It turns out that there is no piece that goes between the microphone and the circuit board. However, there is a bit of clear plastic -- an *elastometer* -- that should be over the center of the microphone, on the side that faces the circuit board. This is the side with rings, rather than the black side. When the microphone and the circuit board are properly in place, and the case is screwed together as tightly as possible, the elastometer makes contact with the circuit board and causes the microphone to work.

    ......

    On the other hand, if the elastometer's there, then it's quite possible that your mic's fine, and the problem may well be that the replacement case either isn't screwed together tightly enough -- or that it's poorly enough made that even if it's as tight as can be, the elastometer's not making contact with the circuit board.

    ............
    Hope this is helpful!

    VERY helpful. That identifies the problem with the new case. Thanks.

    Problem solved

    Glad to be of service!

    Incidentally, where'd you get your case from? Both the one I had problems with and the one another user on another board had problems with were eBay purchases, and it turns out they were from the same seller -- Sunchamp Corp., whose eBay ID is wholeaccessories. They did a fine job of shipping the cases promptly; but wonder if maybe they got a batch of KE433 cases that just aren't quite up to spec.

    Kyocera speaker

    The Kyocera Rave mic in the lower part of the phone will not work if you screw the shell down too hard. Ther is NOTHING between the green speaker and the board. I thought the same. Just snug up the screws and experiment with the phone. I had the same problem. My phone works again now.....:-))

    Same eBay Seller

    Yes, this was my seller too.
    Facinating.
    Maybe someone should warn the seller?
