IPhone 4 speaker volume is too low

The most obvious solution would be to check the volume settings either by using the volume control on the side of the phone, or through the audio settings in the settings menu. If everything is already set to high then the next thing to do would be to check for water damage/physical damage. If you look through the headphone jack you should see an indicator for water damage. If there is no liquid it is white, if there is liquid it turns red. If it is red then there could be water damage affecting your speakers, otherwise if it is white check the speakers themselves. These speakers are pretty much made of paper so anything could harm them. All in all though if everything seems to be ok, but the speakers are still low take it to your carrier or the apple store. The iPhone has a 1 yr warranty but sometimes the apple store will take care of it for you even after the 1st year.

My nokia n97 does not access network at all after it was repair for water damages, what could be problem

Sorry to hear about your unfortunate problem. But water tend to damage the circuits. Get a new handset. Problems will continue even after repairing. Its a waste of time and money.

I dropped my phone in water. It was retrieved in seconds. I can receive calls and hear just fine. I am unable to access any controls on the screen. Please, help. The sticker in the back is still pink.

Thanks for visiting FixYa!

First, the sticker color doesn't always indicate whether your phone has water damage.

The first thing you need to know is that water - even fresh water - contains salt. And, salt is an excellent conductor of electricity. Even when the water evaporates, salt deposits remain. Even a very small amount of salt will cause the electronics in your phone to short circuit thereby keeping you from using certain features on your phone.

We run into this problem all the time here at the shop. It has been our experience that even if the phone is properly serviced and begins to work properly again, the fix is short lived. The phone usually begins to become non-functional a short time later (maybe a week - maybe two weeks later.)

I recommend that if you carry insurance on your phone with your cellular provider, that you submit a claim for a new phone. If you don't carry insurance, contact your cellular company and tell them your phone has water damage and see if you are eligible for an upgrade. If you are, you can get a new phone at a substantial discount. If you're not eligible, they may make an exception

I would however, strongly recommend that you not waste your money on repairs, under the circumstances.

LG GB 102 why does my mobile not allow anyone I ring hear me voice although I can hear the clearly

I am not sure but it may be that the speaker you are speaking into may be broken. Have you tried to see if they can hear you on the speaker phone setting. If your phone is less than 1 year old and has no water damage it will be covered by a factory warranty even if prepay. you can call your service provider or go by their store and find out how you go about getting it replaced under the one year factory warranty.

I hope that my advice helps please do not forget to rate/vote my advice or even place a testimonial.

I just bought the LG Cookie and all of a sudden there is no sound. Phone call came in was talking and next thing I know no voice, cannot hear a thing, they can hear me I just cannot hear them or hear it...

Debi, You may have subjected it to some jerks or thuds. Even a small thud can do the damage. Even on the bed. The speaker may have got disconnected. The phones with their small size and large features are very delicate and can just get disconnected anytime for no major reason. they have to be dealt with very delicately. Now you must get the speaker re-connected, from the nearest LG Service Center.

Lg cu515 I can't hear caller but caller can hear me. I can hear them on speakerphone or bluetooth, not on phone normal speaker.

im a cell rep, delt with this problem before, take the back off the phone there is a white dot somewhere on there, if it's red it has water damage. if it's not your speaker for normal calling is broke, that's why you can only hear it on speakerphone and bluetooth, usually caused by water damage. there are cell phone repair shops, if you want do a search for one near you, they charge to fix the phone, but i have sent my customers there before and had their phones fixed. if it annoys you to much and you dont want to deal with it, if you have insurace i would file a claim, if not buy a phone from a friend or off craigslist or ebay, cheaper. hope i helped

C902 water damage??

Your suspicions are correct, this is due to water damage. If you ever get water in or on it...promptly take the battery out and put both into a bowl of rice and cover it up. This will draw out any moisture from inside the phone.

If there is still ANY water in it and you try to use it, the phone will short out. You will still get some functionality, but you need to get a new phone.

Sorry about your misfortune, thank you for trying Fixya!

Internal Speaker Problem

Water damage is deadly. Your speaker is different from your earpiece speaker and that is the reason behind why you are able to hear your device ring as well as incoming txt messages. Since your device has been in contact with water-damage, more than likely the ear-piece suffered from that effect. There is no fix to water-damage devices, except replacing the phone as a whole. Thanks. Sorry for the bad news!
