Question about HTC G1

Speaker on g1 phone stopped working

Have been using a new g1 for the past month. The phone stopped working and so I tried rebooting by removing the battery and replacing. The phone turned on but the with little charge. I then charged it overnight and thought everything was fine. However, I noticed I wasn't getting any calls but then I would checked I there would be voice mail. I checked the ring volume and it's not highest level. The phone vibrates with incoming calls but there's no ring tone. I can call out but the speaker phone doesn't work. I tried changing ring tones and can't hear anything. Is it possible that I somehow turned off the speaker or am I looking at a broken phone?

    I'm afraid that if i remove the board that I will "void" any warranty I have on the phone. However I greatly appreciate the advise.

    WHEN I TURN ON THE MUSIC IT SOUNDS LIKE THE SPEAKER IS BUSTED OR SOMETHING. I DONT KNOW WHATS REALLY WRONG WITH IT.!

    During a call on speaker phone the speaker on the G1 phone stopped working. A few days later It worked for a brief moment when I answered a call. The ringer started when I pressed "accept". Making me think it is an application interference with the speaker's functionality.

    I have uninstalled all applications and still the speaker does not work.

    I think it is the programing but I am not finding any viruses.

    any more ideas regarding a programing error.

    After a month the speaker in my g1 phone just died. All other functions work, but no speaker phone and no music. About to do master reset and probably get a replacement under warranty from tmobile.

    I have the same problem. I believe it's software related. Still no solution. I have also factory reset, and cleaned my phone.

Well first of, there is your warranty, but if your phone breaks after expirations, there is both an T-Mobile G1 Repair Guide and a third party T-Mobile G1 Repair Service, so there is no need to worry.

Open your phone and clean the contacts between the speaker and the board.... that is the common fault for cellphone speakers.

Ringer and speakerphone not working


a lot of the system volumes were put back to default. I only realized this when I downloaded the "Audio Manager Widget". Then I found that I apparently missed a couple volume settings.
also It might be due to the In-Call volume. The only time you can adjust the In-Call volume is when you're in a call (duh!). So, I called my voicemail and put it on speakerphone just left it all the way up and now I can hear the dialpad tones again!
also I think it was swapping from vibrate to full volume when I received an SMS (or was doing multiple things at once).
All sound stopped working on the device. It's an Dream from Optus.
try a quick reboot.. that shud fix all the problems though

if all the above moethod fails... its time to call the manufacturer....

good luck
