    Think the speaker is broken, no sound at all from anything, been through every sound option and still not a peep from it. Can hear people during calls (this i think is a diff speaker) Anyone know a site or can offer a link for the correct replacement speaker?

    i have the same problem. i can play music through the speaker but when i recieve calls or messages i hear nothing. the alarm does not make a noise either.

    i have checked all the setting with no success.

    Speaker is deffinatly knackered as is mine, you can test this by entering the service menu by using *R*LL*L*(left and right on the ring under the screen) .

    Does anyone where to get this fault fixed?

Ok, Might seem like a daft question but is it on silent?

I'm guessing you chekced this already but it's easy to miss.

The first thing to check is whether it will make any sound at all - this is a good guide as to whether the speaker is broke or just settings are wrong. Being a Walkman phone you might have some tunes on it so see if they play. Do this through the walkman/media player feature as apposed to the ringtone area.

If they play then you know it's still working and some settings need changing. If not your speaker might be broken.

If the speaker works then you need to check the ringer volume. this can be done from MENU/SETTINGS/SOUNDS&ALERTS/RING VOLUME - this then needs to be set using left and right to go up and down.

After this is set test call the handset to see. If still no luck change the ringtone to another tone - something built into the handset preferably - might be a faulty tune. If still no luck check the the number calling the handset has not got any sound preferences - i.e. no tune when call received. If still no luck it might be broke...

hope this helps some what...
