Question about Cell Phones

When plugging in earphones or wireless transmitter into my iPhone 4, I get a crackling, far away sound. External speaker works fine. Tried different earphones and transmitter with no change. Can I fix it myself if its the headphone jack? Could it be something else?

You need to clean the heaphones entry. cut the head of a ear cleaner so it's the size of the hole, with a little cotton left. Dump it in little alcohol and use it clean inside the hole. worked for me like magic.

SOURCE: speaker only works with headphones

it's probablyjust a defective earspeaker. Bring it to the apple store to see if you geta replacement through them. If you can't, there are third party iPhone repair services, that will fixed it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI iphone repair guide, so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult. Part is available on ebay.

Check the microphone. Record your voice with the built in app. If it's recording just fine is most likely a software issue.

Earphone jack on my compaq presario c700 stopped working. How do I fix it?


You will need professional help on this, the laptop must be dismantled down to the motherboard level to access the problem. The earphone jack may have to be replaced and requires a high degree of solder skills to remedy the situation.

Everything works fine on the unit no problem until


3. If your Nuvi has a FM transmitter, is it selected to "FM" or "Speaker"? The "FM" setting will mute the internal speaker. Setting it to "Speaker" will send sound to the speaker.

if this side of it works then the FM transmitter is faulty

Check that the sound has not been MUTED

plug the earphone into the socket to see if any sound is heard. The socket is also a switch that takes sound from internal speaker to ephone and reverse.
If no sound is hear in either FM or normal mode your unit is faulty and needs repair

No sound!


If you can hear audio through the headphone jack but not the internal speaker jack, then the speaker is bad.

This is a problem I have seen many times before. I will be posting an article soon on how to replace the internal speaker, however this is not a repair that just anyone can do.

You have to have skills in dissassembly & soldering.
