Sound going in & out

My daughter has a new phone & only on outgoing calls will the sound go out. She can't hear it ringing & when the person answers, she cant her them either. She has had the phone for 2 months. I was wondering if there was a recall on the phone or if anyone else is experiencing this problem. Thanks, Karen

What is happening is that she is accidently pressing the "up" portion of the rocker switch on the left side of the phone when she flips the phone open. You will notice (try this on purpose)that when you open the phone while holding the rocker switch up, that there are no key sounds when dialing a number. Oh yes, the number will dial and even show connected on the screen--but no sound!!!. Now, to hear the dialed number ringing, you must press the speakerphone button below the rocker switch. You don't have to turn on the speaker phone, just pressing this button restores sound. On the next call however, the sound will STILL not work until you press the 4 way toggle button in the center of the phone. Now the phone is restored to normal status. It took me about five hours and a million combinations of buttons to figure this out. See my post, from 121212. thanks

Nokia E5 the only way i can make an outgoing call is to remove and replace battery. Otherwise I cant hear ring of outgoing call and when the other person picks up, they can hear me but i still cant hear...

HiCan you play songs ? If you can play songs then your earpiece is damage or short circuit and at the same time even if you play songs there is no sound then the problem comes from the Sound IC or its related components.So, if you can listen music just change the earpiece(the smaller speaker which is facing front side).Good luck

For incoming calls the phone rings but I cannot hear the caller. The volume is set to the maximum. For outgoing call I cannot hear the ring tone nor the person receiving the call.

Sounds like you reciever speaker is out. It might be cheaper to get a new phone than fix this one. Check with out a local cell repair store to see what they charge then make an informed decision.

When the phone rings and I answer it I can't hear

That means the speaker for the ear is damaged and needs to be/replaced/repaired. Most devices come with a one year manufacturer's warranty. If unsure about the purchase date check with your carrier.

I can make and receive calls, but I cannot hear anything.

Check Windows Sound mixer for application volume. Down in system tray at right side of taskbar double click sound icon for XP or click sound icon once and click Mixer for Vista. Look through volume settings for your phone application. Make sure it is not muted and volume is up.

I am able to call but can't hear the other persons phone ringing, busy, voicemail or if anyone answers, there is no sound. The same if someone calls me, it rings, I try to answer & nothing. I can send...

well the ringing is from another speaker that works as a loudspeaker/ handsfree on your phone

as a preliminary check try connecting a headset and answer the phone if you can hear the other party then the problem is with the earpeice, you might want to get it repaired
