Ear Speaker Gone Bad

I am currently on my SECOND t-mobile dash. The fist one the speaker went bad for a week or so and somehow corrected its self. I could still hear calls but the persons voice would crack. Like a blown speaker. Now i am on my second one and the same exact thing happened. But it is not goin away. Does anybody know what causes this?

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.

Ear speaker not working

hi thanks for using fixya!

Try to remove and install back again the battery of your sony ericsson. Then turn on the power and try to call someone, if still doesn't work, you have the hardware problem in regard with the ear speaker. Try to send it to a service center to further check the error.

Speaker on g1 phone stopped working

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.

Bad screen

Call t-mobile if it under warranty. If not, then take a look at these directions. Instead of replacing the lcd screen, just reset the lcd connector.

People can't hear me during calls (T-Mobile Sidekick 2)

You can try using your left toggle button push down until you see turn on speaker phone highlighted in blue or use scroll key and just click on it and it works much better. If not try turning phone around and putting speaker to ear and then mic should pick you up but i have found in the last 3 hrs i have had this one speaker phone is easier for this big device.Well hope that helps,good luck.

Ear Speaker Problem

Sorry to say - there's no fix for this. You have to get a new phone.

T-mobile Wing speaker problem

I had this happen after around 14 months of usage. Mind you, I changed the registry value in the first week I had it so that the speaker volume was increased to a hearable level, so perhaps I just burned out the speaker after having it on high for so long.
Anyway, I went ahead and bought the replacement part (HTC Wing P4350 Loud speaker ringer buzzer parts OEM USA) from eBay for US$8 including shipping, and I put it in the other week and it worked fine! I was so happy! You need the appropriate star mini screwdriver (my friend had one), and you undo the four screws after taking off the battery cover and battery. Plus you need to be Ok with unscrewing through that little Void sticker on one of the screws. After that, the enclosure where the speaker is will lift out, and the speaker itself will come out as well, it just sits in there connecting with the contacts on the board. Anyhow, I took my old one out, plopped the new one in, and put it back together. Turned it on, and voila! My speaker was working again.
In case it helps, when mine went out I noticed some crackling coming from it off and on for about a day before, and then on the day it went out the crackling was loud and distorted the music I was playing. After a couple of minutes it stopped playing altogether, restarts didn't help.
At least this problem is fixable, but first determine whether it is the speaker or a driver issue. Try to play a file in Windows Media Player - if it looks like it's playing, and there is no sound (and the Windows Media Player sound is turned up AND your phone volume is turned up), then it's most likely your speaker. Good news, you can fix it. Good luck!
