Can you do a diagnostic first...

How to diagnose your phone using Samsung Members

Open the Samsung Members app and tap “Support”.Tap “View tests”.Tap “Test all” to start Diagnostics. Follow the on-screen instructions to test the performance of your smartphone. You can skip some parts of the process and return to them whenever you want.

If you then still need to reset your phone see here about how to proceed.

Once backed up, you can do a factory reset.

Sorry, did you mean you used safe mode and the mic was still dead?

Safe mode process if you need it

Back up should cause you no problems as long as you follow all instructions in link.

I have the same issue. I've been trying to solve for over a year now. Very frustrating. I've tried everything suggested including the safe mode thing. Nothing has helped. Next step is to replace the mic or throw the phone out and buy an LG.
