Very low ring volume in blackberry bold 9000

Very recently i discovered that my bold has a very low ring volume and alert tones, hardly audible. I tried to fix it by editing the profile and putting the volume ot high..but didnt work. I also used to the options menu in the phone options and put the volume level to 100% and didnt work either.

Can some one help me to get my old settings and speaker volume back on my bold please?

I had the same problem. My ring was getting lower everyday. I've done my fair share of dropping the phone.
So, I read that other people were having the issue.
One genius, told us to take off the back plate, and just where the camera is, there is a greyish plastic plate riveted down with plastic knobs. You press on either side quite hard. If you can do this while the phone is ringing, you will hear the volume jump up and down. When it sounds just right, leave it alone, put back on the plate.
If it happens again, repeat.
You may need to buy the speaker plate after a while. It's only 10 bucks on cnn.cn

    Thank you so much for this solution. I was having low volume problems with my BB 9000, and would miss calls when the phone rang. I even put in an app to cause the LED to flash in several colors to alert me to calls, otherwise I would miss them. I took off the back cover, and pressed on the plate around the grey plastic plastic plate and the ringer volume has improved dramatically. I can now set it back to Normal volume rather than Loud. Thanks once again!!!

Best way to fix this problem is by removing the black plate from the back...Then take a small pin, blade or needle and pull out the pins of the speaker a bit...That makes it get a more solid contact with the connections on the main board...After screw the back plate back on very very tightly an bang your booming again...Did this on about 8 Bold 9000 and they work perfectly after that...Don't worry about buying a new speaker or back plate, this works permanently and just fine...
I run a cell phone repair shop and I hate it when technicians charge people so much money to fix something so simple...

If you scroll up and to the left on the home screen to the icon that kind of resembles this >> [o)))]

Once highlighted, press the ball in and you'll see all of the different profiles. At the bottom it says "advanced". By selecting this option, you can edit all profiles.

Hope this helps :)

    Just one more thing, be sure to press the options key (the one with the dots next to the green phone button) and select edit. Just selecting a profile will make that your current profile.

Yeah my bb bold started doing the same thing. the volume toggle on the top right just plain stopped working. So I found that by squeezing the screen just beside it (or pinching it with my fingers) caused it to work .. I presume however it is a temporary fix as surely it will **** out on me again soon. Worth a try if you are really annoyed with it.

    Cool This worked. Opened the cover and pressed softly on the grey plate and pressed in the center as well. I played the music, you know what volume level increased. Thanks....Jenson Sebastian

Solutions 2 and 3 are the easiest, hardly any tools required. You can also just bang it a bit or blow into it to get rid of any dust or sand etc. Solution #1 probably the most technically correct

I wouldn't have believed it if i didn't try it and it it worked. i've been servicing my companies Bold 9000's for about a year now, and have typically warrantied back the phones for the "volume dying" issue. I wouldn't say this a manufacturing defect, but more a huge design flaw.

My BB9000 is not loud enough. I selected the profile "loud" , selected the "classic ring tone phone", set the volume to 10 and I can hardly hear the ring tone. Thanks, Victor


Did you put your own ring tone on there? If so...it is not loud enough. I know this from previous experience. When you record one and drag into the mini sd card you have to do it very loud. You can use the recorder that comes with that phone and record one and then select it as the tone but make sure you get it close to the mike.

Hi how can i increase volume on my blackberry 9000. Even on high volume setting there is no ringtone sometimes


Hi there

On your Blackberry menu, there's an icon that resembles a person's head that represents profiles. In the profiles menu, you can select the volume for the notifications you receive when messages or calls come in. Choose "Loud" to hear all notifications at an equal volume, equivalent to the maximum output possible.

Some ring tones just remain less audible than others even when they're set to maximum volume. If you've tried increasing the volume of your notifications but still can't hear the ringer sometimes, try downloading a custom ringtone from the Blackberry App Store.

When selecting a custom ringtone, choose something distinctive and hard to ignore. When previewing the tone, determine whether it seems louder or easier to hear than your existing tone. Download more than one tone and experiment throughout the day.

After you've downloaded custom ringtones, set your phone to use these ringers by going into the applicable notification profile. Select "Show Tunes" and open the media folder where you've chosen to save your downloaded tones. Select the ringer you want and click "Set as Phone Tune."

CAN'T HEAR MY PHONE RING WHEN SOMEONE CALLS ME I HAVE TO PUT THE PROFILE ON VIBRATE


Each of your profiles can be set to different ring tones and different volumes, so whatever profile you have your phone set to, make sure you have it on a ring tone you can hear, and make sure the volume is turned up. Let me know if this doesn't work.

I have a new blackberry bold and even though the volume is set at high my phone still rings very low and also the music and i am frustrated


Hi,

Use the side key on the right side of your blackberry bold and this should settle it, if that fails to work go to Options>Profiles>Loud.

This should do.

Kind Regards

My ringing volume is very low i have tried advanced profiles and put all setting on high however its still very low i can hardly hear it.


I have the same issue. It is a manufacturing fault. The fix with mine was to fold up a gum wrapper and place it over the camera flash, and re-fit the back cover. It may take some fiddling around as too much pressure will cause it to go low in volume again. another solution would be to place a dab of glue around the camera flash and let it dry before replacing the back cover. In the end, you just want to applie a slight pressure to the camera lens / flash area. Hope this helps

Low custom (individual) ring volume


This is not a B/B fault, unfortunatley the person who recorded the ringtone has recorded it at a low level, import into a wave/mp3 studio program and alter the recorded levels.

That is if you have tried the following:

Select Speaker Icon on the front screen of your 8100 (top right) press pearl in, scroll down to advanced, select the current profile (this is defaulted to Normal). Scroll to Phone and press pearl in.

Change Volume to High, if it's already on high, try the option above.

Bold 9000 ring and alert volume way too low, regardless of settings


Some of the ringtones in the Bold don't seem to be suited for "loud" profiles.
Try to edit your settings for the ringtone, making sure you pay attention to the correct settings.
To edit your ring settings
-go to your "profiles" screen -roll the ball to the bottom and select "advanced" -highlight the profile you want to edit -use your BB button to select "edit"
-choose the "phone" application -choose the setting you would like to edit (in holster or out of holster) -choose your volume setting from here.
This should solve your problem
