Welcome to the forums.
Are you still having this issue? Have you tried doing a full power down of the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet?

the issue is a hardware issue as the right hand microphone is connected to the same ribbon connector that the earphone jack uses and if you record a 10 second video and for the last 5 seconds squeeze (with a firm squeeze) the playbook right where the microphone is you will see in the playback that this eliminates the "static" and normal sound is resumed ....... the only problem now is getting blackberry (rim) to accept this as a common fault as there are currently no spare parts for a diy fix it would have to be returned to rim europe which is fine if you have a warranty but not if your like me and own a secondhand unit ........if anyone gets an ansewr for a spare parts supplier please let us know

I had tried that. And I also tried powering down and back on, but the message remains.
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I'll be glad to try other suggestions if you have them.
