Playbook audio issue

Please help !! My crapberry playbook has the dreaded static noise issue when recording voice or video.

I have read on Google that people are blaming this on the new update but I have since found the cause ...It is down to the right hand microphone that shares a ribbon cable with the earphone jack and for some reason this has shorted out and caused the microphone to pick up nothing but static noise.... This part seems easy to replace but somewhat impossible to locate a supplier ...If there is anyone who has had the same issue and resolved it please let me know .


My playbook is 18months old and is also secondhand so no need to suggest returning under warranty
