I have a camera with an onboard microphone. The mic doesn't work but there is a circle on the pcb marked mic1. IIs all I need do is put a jumper [wire link / resistor / ??] to get it to work? I have attached a picture.
Thanks

Looks to me that that is the actual pcb position for an electret mic. Are you sure the mic element is actually fitted ?

That seems to be an odd place for a mic. That cabling is usually in a wall cavity or ceiling space. As mentioned the first pic looks like where the mic would go if fitted. In Aust it is illegal to have audio with cameras as it contravenes the Telecommunications (Listening Devices) Act

Seriously? Huh. I didn't know that!

thanks. the plastic housing the pcb on the power lead has perforations onthe part that covers it, so i'm guessing it is a mic - also it has mic1 next to it on the rectangular pcb.
