Question about Sprint Vision PPC-6700 Smartphone

No more sound from speaker

I can no longer hear the sound from my ppc speaker, when I plug a headset in I hear the sound fine, and when I use my bluetooth headset I can hear the calls fine, I can hear the tap sounds before Voice command releases if I tap on the screen. The only sound that I hear from the phone with out a headset is the lost signal tone. When the phone starts up and when the phone has lost its wireless signal I can hear the signal loss tone just fine. Does that tone operate via a diffrent speaker?

Re: No more sound from speaker

I had a similar issue on mine. The easy fix was to insert a headset jack and pull it out quickly. I think something got stuck that turns off the speaker after I put the headset in the jack once. If this is the problem, I think you should also see a headset icon when making calls, even though no headset is attached.

When i recieve or make a call i can not hear anything?

1. Take the battery out to reset/reboot.
2. Once it powers up, plug a wired headset into it.
If you can hear through the headset fine -but not thru the ear speaker, well then its the ear speaker that has gone bad. (Hardware problem.. if its less than a year old or u have cell phone insurance, call your cell company and see if they will replace that under warranty)
You could also try speakerphone and see if that works.. if the ear speaker goes out - maybe the loud speaker will still work.

No speaker no sound on my treo

I had to have my Treo swapped once already because of a problem with the headset jack. The same problem is happening now - the phone always thinks the headset is plugged in (even when it isn't). That results in phone ringing (unless on virbate / silent mode) but no audio through the speaker in the back, and no speakphone icon appearing.

Given the symptoms you describe I would go to your service provider and (hopefully) get support under warranty - very likely hardware related.

Sx66 cant hear people and they cant hear me

i encountered this problem after i started using a bluetooth headset. when the headset is not in use (not turned on, not even with me), sometimes there is no sound from the speaker, and the other party cannot hear me. meanwhile, the call timer is clicking away indicating the call connected. it seemed there was some issue in the bluetooth stack, and the phone thought it should be communicating with the BT device rather than it's onboard speaker/mic. to resolve, i disconnect the call, go to the main screen; in the bottom right corner, use the bluetooth manager icon to turn BT On then Off again. this resets the phone's speaker/mic usage, and calls can be made like normal. i hope this helps you.

Speaker Failure

jamin is not silent.
jamin can vibrate but wont ring.
music works fine only if though a headset.
calls work fine only if through a headset.
was working fine playing music and then we tried to make a call after pulling out the headset and got no audio and as it was expecting a headset it wasnt picking anything up from the mic. maybe its a mic issue? ie mic died so jamin switches to headset? just thought of that so will investigate.

Treo 600 can't hear without headset

Try blowing hard on the spot where the headset plugs in. I have this same issue on my treo and a good burst of air will at times bring back the speaker/microphone.

No sound is coming out my PPC 6700

I would try a system reset there might be something wrong with the PPC itself but you won't know until you try these other two if you are still experiencing difficulties synch your phone to the comp call in and have it reset to factory default settings and if it still isn't work take it in to the store and have a diagnostic test run on the phone itself sorry that is happening to you and I hope this helps :)

Speaker microphone malfunction

I had same problem with my PPC so I tried hard reset didn't help, PCS support did hard reset and nothing, same problem so what I did is insert that headset plug in and out couple of times that fix the problem but any time I use my wired headset problem comes back.
I realized that the problem was in the 2.5 jack it self, I took it to Sprint store, left it for a hour when I am back the tech guy said that they replace my phone with new one, oh well this is third phone in less then 14 mos.
But anyway now it works just fine so I try to use Bluetooth headpiece much is possible. Waiting for my 2 year contract to end so I can get PPC-6800 or something better, had too many problems with this phone. I like the phone but it was freezing up on me every day and tech support didn't do s!#@!#t for me to fix it until this problem comes up, I'm kind of glad it did :-) in the way.

I-mate jam sound prob.

I get a similar problem on occasion, my IMATE JAM loses sound through the external speaker. I'm sure it's something inside but it's not worth sending out for a repair. I've found that simply inserting a set of headphones and then removing a set of headphones, resets the speaker. This leads me to believe that the problem (on my unit) is with the headphone jack, probably from a fall of some sort. The device, on occasion, simply acts as if a headphone is plugged in. Anyhow it's worked five times over the past year, each time the problem has occurred.
