Hi. I have a Motorola E815 cellphone - works great. However, the external speaker is bad.
I can't hear it ring when anyone calls me, I can't use the alarm clock feature, etc...... Right now, if anybody calls me, the only way I can tell is if I happen to be looking at the phone when the call (or text message) comes in.
I have it set to VIBRATE so if I'm holding the phone and someone calls, I can feel it vibrate. But most of the time, I'm missing a lot of calls now because of this. I took it apart and was able to determine that the speaker is defective and needs to be replaced.
Any idea where I can get a replacement speaker for my cell? I'd prefer not to send it to a repairman and lose the phone for a few days - not to mention that I can do the work myself.
Any advice you folks have would be much appreciated. Thank you, in advance.
I was able to solve this problem by locating a suitable speaker on eBAY. eBAY was the only place I was able to find a replacement speaker for my cell phone.
It seems that Verizon (my cell phone provider) and Motorola only offer one solution to this problem - buy a whole new cell phone (which means signing up for another 2 years of Verizon wireless service). My solution was better and cheaper (only cost me $7.00 to buy it and have it shipped).
This has been the only problem I've ever had with this cell phone and the new speaker solved it.

In an increasingly hands-free world, the external speaker feature of cell phones has increased the usability of cell phones in the car, public transportation and at work. The volume controls on the external speaker controls can be somewhat difficult to find and manipulate.
sure the speaker setting is actually on. If the speaker is turned to
off, the volume you hear will be coming from the earpiece and will be
very low indeed. Sometimes there is a button on a cellphone which you
can simply press and hold to activate the speaker function. You will
notice a difference immediately.
to see if you have external volume controls. On some models, there is a
button or two buttons that adjust the volume of both the handset and
the speaker volume. If you have these buttons, use them to adjust these
controls while on calls. Remember that adjusting the speaker volume
will subsequently adjust the handset volume once you've turned off the
the sound controls in your phone. If your phone does not have external
speaker control, it can be accessed by adjusting the controls saved on
your phone. Also, the main settings can be controlled even if you do
have external controls. Phones are different, but in your menu of
options, choose sound and sound controls. This should give you options
for ring volume, alarm volume and handset volume.
volume controls for all settings. If you wish yo have multiple settings
for each function---alarm, calls and speaker---you should be able to
adjust these accordingly. Search through the control options until
you've found speaker controls. Choose the setting you desire and save
Using the main volume as a foundation, use the external controls (if applicable) to adjust the levels.
Very sorry about the not working of the external speaker... But i'm sure you are speaking about the speaker that is in-built in the phone hence internal. Just check if you are able to record anything at alll on your mobile, if not then you can confirm that the speaker is't working.. Try using the Hands-free for time being and your speaker problems cannot be addressed unless briefly explained. Else check with your vendor for the solution..
This sounds like you have a defective external speaker. Motorola's are known for that. Just take it back to your service provider. They should be able to install a new speaker right on the spot.
Hope this helps!
This exact issue happened to me: I left my phone off for 2 days (unplugged), turned it back on and the internal speaker started working normally again. The phone worked normally for over a month after this.
Yesterday, the earpiece speaker stopped working again after the phone fell out of my pocket. I suspect a loose connection or something similar, but I've had my phone off for the last day and will let you know whether or not it starts working again.
