Question about Apple iPhone 3G

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.

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.

When im talking on my iphone it keeps muting my calls or putting them on loud speaker is there away to stop this from happening?


It seems that the proximity sensor on your iPhone isn't working properly. The iPhone's screen should turn off when it is close to your face. If this does not happen, bring it into an Apple Store and they should replace it for you. (if your iPhone is still under warranty)

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.

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.
