LG Rumor Internal Earpiece Toggles from Working to Not

I purchased my LG Rumor on 9/1 and yesterday it suddenly stopped having sound in the earpiece (not headset, the regular phone earpiece) when I make or receive calls. At first I thought it was related to it being charged, but it just spontaneously stops working periodically then cycles back to working. When it isn't working, I can hear fine if I use a wired headset, bluetooth or the speaker option, but not when it's just the phone itself.

I do have Sprint insurance, so I will be taking it to a repair center, but it's still strange that just started out of the blue on a new phone.

Anyone else having this problem?

    Mine has the same problem. Both times, I was using the phone and propping it between my ear and shoulder. I did push a combination of buttons? Don't know, but I've checked to see that it wasn't on mute.

There could be a short in the earpiece. This can be fixed at a repair center if they are stocked with the right parts. If not they can still check out the phone and see if it is eligible for an exchange.

My LG KM555E phone is not working well, I can't hear any call any txt without using headset. The speaker is not working.

You will need to open the phone to get access to the board so as to check on the earpiece. Now it is confirmed that the earpiece is faulty and the board is working perfectly as the external headphone is used with good result . So using a multimeter check the continuity of the small speaker, remove and check. If resistance is open then the earpiece has failed. If not the sensitivity has dropped. make sure there are no blocks on the earpiece to prevent sound.

This can be a coincidence but I feel that the earpiece speaker is faulty. Since your headset is working then it is for sure that the circuit is functioning. So it is either a connection of the speaker jack not linking back to the speaker after the jack is withdrawn. SO if you are able to open the phone check with a multimeter on the earpiece speaker. replace if faulty.

I have same problem, I bought this phone 6 month ago.

You will need to re-pair your phone with the earpiece. The best option is to contact your local cellular rep and get them to assist or go to the store where you purchased the earpiece.

Bluetooth connects to LG Vu phone but does not work

I would suggest taking the battery out when the phone is powered on. Replace the battery and try to re-pair the set.

If that doesn't work, then its likely the bluetooth module in your phone is broken. You can validate this by pairing the bluetooth with another handset.
