Speaker Replacement & Repair
Are you having issues with the speaker on your device? You might need to have it repaired. Speaker issues can be caused by faulty wires, broken boards, or other internal issues.
You might think you have a speaker problem but you may actually have a microphone problem. How can you tell the difference? If you are experiencing poor sound quality or you can’t hear anything sound at all, it is probably a speaker problem. If you can hear fine, but others cannot hear you on a call, then it is likely to be a microphone problem.
Your device has more than one speaker. The internal speaker is what you hear on a phone call. It operates at a lower volume because you have the phone pressed against your ear. The external speaker is what you hear when your phone rings or you are listening to music. This sound is meant to be louder so that you hear it when it is in your pocket, bag, purse, or across the room.
If you are not receiving any sound from your speaker, then it is probably a hardware problem with the speaker itself. However, if the sound is just distorted or fading in and out, then there could be other causes. Your phone could be having connection problems with your carrier. It could also be a software conflict caused by a recently downloaded app. Check with your carrier, and if there is not a connection issue, then you might want to reset your phone. Make sure you backup your data first, as a reset will erase the data you have saved.
Headphone Jack Replacement & Repair
If the sound from your mobile device is hissing, crackling, or fading in and out when you use headphones, it could be your headphone jack. If you have tested your headphones with other devices to make sure that they are working properly, then the problem is most likely in the jack. There are some simple things that you can to try to solve the problem before seeking repair.
It’s possible that the headphone jack is just dusty or dirty. You can try using compressed air to clean out the debris to see if this solves your issues. A damp toothpick can also be used to gently clean out the jack and remove lint. Be very careful when inserting anything into the jack to avoid further damage.
Check the settings on your device. You might just need to update a driver or adjust the volume. Sometimes a device will automatically mute the volume when headphones are plugged in or removed. You should also check the connection by removing the headphones and re-inserting them. They might just be improperly inserted. Finally, try restarting the device to see if it solves the problem.
