My Iphone ear phone speaker and click sounds are mute. I noticed it happened after a line with a triangle was displayed on the screen. I remember I had played music before that happened with earphones. This happened before and corrected it self after turning off the phone. Now, I can only hear if the phone speaker on.

    Mine has the same problem. I tried sliding the headphone jack in and out a few times, cleaning out the head phone port with a Q-tip and alcohol, turning the phone off and on, restoring the phone through iTunes. Nothing worked.

It's usually caused by a defective or dislodged headphone jack module, this should be covered under warrantyunless there are visible marks of physical damage. If you're not covered, youcan try a iphone repair guide DIY websites, there are also places that sell iphone parts and you can try auctions Ebay etc as well.

basically, debris in your headphone jack causes iphone "think" the headphone is still in place.
try insert it multiple times as described in the above support article, it works for me.

Phone mutes while I'm talking


Sometimes when phone is security locked and you answer a call your phone gives you access to call screen until you put it to your ear (and the phone blanks screen because it's at your ear). If you accidently hit the mute button with your face before the screen turns off you will mute yourself. This happens to me sometimes and when i pull the phone away from my ear the phone display lights up but the phone is on lock so i have to put in pin to unlock screen and unmute myself

I'm assuming you have tried the obvious things like turning the volume up? If so, you need to replace the ear piece speaker. Link below to buy the part and video on how to fix. Fairly easy repair.

My iphone 4s was super hot wen charging over night turned it on and battery on the screen was white.i unplugged it and battery showed a sliver of red and shut off immediatly. when i removed the back cover...


Given the odd nature of this overheating I would advise taking it into an apple tech. If it was only charging, it doesn't sound like something that is caused by you and may very well be a manufacturing defect that they could confirm.

How do I turn speaker phone


    • 1 Press the green "Phone" key on the main screen of your iPhone. This key has a silhouette of a traditional hand receiver and is located on the bottom part of the screen.
    • 2 Begin to use your speakerphone by making a call or accepting a call from other participants. You can make a call by going to your "Contacts" list or activating the keyboard and dialing a number. Incoming phone calls can be accepted by pressing the "Accept" key underneath the caller ID.
    • 3 Activate the "Speaker" function on your iPhone when you are ready to use your speakerphone. This button is located above the caller's information and allows you to switch on and off with one tap of your finger.
    • 4 Put participants on hold while you use your iPhone speakerphone. There is a "Hold" key at the bottom of the calling screen that lets you speak to people without bringing callers into the conversation.
    • 5 Access your contact information over the Internet while you use your speakerphone. You can reach the main page of your iPhone by pressing the "Home" button if you are on hold. The iPhone does not allow you to play music or use other audio options while on hold because you are still on the phone.
    • 6 Adjust the volume level before you begin a conference using your speakerphone. There are volume buttons on the side of the iPhone that provide detailed control over speaker sound levels.
    • 7 Mute the speakerphone if you must leave your office or take a break from a conversation. The "Mute" key is available on the call screen and instantly cuts off your microphone and the speaker.
    • 8 Add new contacts to your iPhone that you have called on your speakerphone. You can go back to your "Recent Calls" list or the keyboard to find numbers to add to your "Contacts" list.

The little speaker in right corner by battery display has a line through it how do i get rid of line so i can hear phone ring


Right click on that same icon with the red line through it. When the Speaker comes up it will have a line through it. Click on that speaker and this un-mutes the speaker. You also can get to it by clicking on start'Control panel' Audio and Sounds Devices. Sometimes wayward malware outs that line through your speaker icon, which mutes the sound, and you can do the same thing by clicking on the icon and thus mute it if you want to take a telephone call. Also note that when you click on it you will see a slider that you can adjust for volume.

I do not have sound on my computer


1.Look in the lower right corner of your screen, does the speaker icon next to the date and time have a red circle with a line through it? If so, right click the speaker icon, open volume mixer, and click the speaker icon for device to un-mute the speakers2_bing.gif.

2.If using Windows Media Player (I am sure this applies to other media players too) please check below the video which is playing and locate the volume control slide bar. There should be a Speaker Icon next to the bar, make sure the red circle with a line through it is not on this icon either. If so, click it to un-mute your media player. Also, make sure the volume within your media player is turned up in this same place.

3.Finally, if all else fails, click the windows bubble (start menu) and right click on "Computer" or "My Computer" and click "Manage". Select "Device Manager" from the list on the left, and scroll down to "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers2_bing.gif". Expand that list, if you have any errors (Yellow Triangles, Red X's) there, you will need to reinstall drivers which can be obtained from the manufacturer's website.

Iphone black screen & buttons "pressed" while on call


I tried a solution to a similar problem and it worked for this problem, which I was having too. All I did was remove the leather case that I used to protect the iPhone. Calling and the screen worked like normal after I took the phone out of the leather case. Try that.
