Default mic and earpiece not working

Hi

I have a problem with my N4

recently my mic and earpiece are not working anymore with regular calls - even if I plug a headset mic no sound and the other person cant hear me.

But skype and hangout works fine earpiece mic or mic headset.

what I tried
unlocked bootloader
install lastest cyanogen did not work
tried all stable cyanogen did not work
I also tried different radio did not work
and I just flash stock 4.2.1 did not work also.

Also tried the app Soundabout to unckeck wired headset to force earpice and mic and didnt work also

Im sure its not hardware since I can hear and mic works on hangout or skype.

I've seen this before on iphones on them it's a hardware fault with a chip that only effects sound during calls. Sounds similar to your problem. First flash a full factory image, (use the flash-all.bat) then if the problem persists it's hardware.

i have the same problem.
try to use SoundAbout,
turn off the wired headset mic (in wired headset behaviour) - the mice should be working now,and in phone call audio - use earpeace
the reason for this problem seems to be that the phone thinks a headset with mic connected.
is music plays normally through the speaker?
