Hello, new to this community here! I've been lurking around this site for a while and finally decided to make an account.

Anyways, I own a rooted ICS Mercury and the problem is that there is a loud beeping sound whenever I try to use the microphone from some earphones. I've tested different earphones but so far, I've only used Apple earphones and the problem persists. I'm wondering if this is a hardware problem or maybe the drivers aren't set properly? The earphones work perfectly, fine on other phones and I can hear well and use the microphone. I am able to hear things like music / calls but the microphone doesn't work.
Although, I've tried one set of old apple earphones and the microphone DOES work, but it just stops responding after like five minutes.
What do you guys think?
