Default Primary Microphone problem

Hi

I have a Xperia Z1 and i have MIC issues. It is a primary mic. People can not hear me well, there is sparkling and like waterfall/windy sound.

I tryed Factory reset and it doesnt work. Secondary MIC working fine but not Primary.

Even when recording videos it is the same.

What is the issue of this? Is it standard problem with Z1? Its not expensive to replace to new one but i just wonder if someone other have same issue?

Where is the MIC flex cable located?
Just trying to help if i can...

The MIC i disconnected was secondary mic. The primary mic is on bottom of the phone built in with speakers i think.

I believe I have the exact same problem. The primary microphone seems to have died completely or people could just hear a distorted "canny" voice. I have no idea how to solve this.
