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.

People cannot hear me on my virgin mobile lg

Try to "un-mute" it (RTFM). If that doesn't help try to use external mic attached to your wired headset or BT earpiece. If still have no mic signal go for service.

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.

I have a new phone model lg km555, but unfortunately after 3 weeks i wasn't able to hear any sounds from it. its like in a silent mode. but i tried it with headset, it works. what can i do?

The earpiece is not functioning or the speaker is not working accordingly. Remove the panel to check the earpiece if faulty replace, if not check the connector, the connections to the earpiece jack section as since the headdphones are working there can be a break inthis section. Use a lens to check carefully.

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.

How do I turn off the speakerphone on my rumor 2?

You have probably noticed that you can place or answer calls by pressing either the green "TALK" button or the "speaker" icon right above the green "TALK" button.

When you press the icon, the phone is in speaker mode. When you press the "TALK" button, the phone is in earpiece mode. Be careful about which button you press.
