Thread: Earpiece volume dropped

  1. #1
    Default Earpiece volume dropped
    I'm running on 1.1.2, last week the volume of my earpiece dropped to an almost impossible to listen level. I've not dropped the phone and I have no protective screen. I've downgraded to 1.1.1 and back up to 1.1.2 with no success. Any ideas???
    Please tell me its not HW related. I've also tried modifying the max volume plst files, the thing is that now my lowest volume is three white squares.

    Please help me out!!!!

    Have you tried another set of earphones?

    Default Earphones work Ok
    The problem is the built in earphone, both earphones and built in speaker phone work fine, the problem is that the earpiece volume is ridiculously low.

    Ahhh, I misunderstood. Since you've already tried restoring I might assume its a hardware problem. Can you take it to an Apple store? I would think they would replace it for you.

    Default Same Problem over here - no solution in sight?!
    Hi there,

    I have the same Issue and I can't re-activate the earpiece speaker! I had the problem under 1.1.1 and the unplugging seemed to work the first 2-3 times but now I unplugged the headphone so often in my attempt to fix this that the jack is already worn out - and no more success. Upgraded to 1.1.2 - no success either.

    All tricks with unplugging while playing, on the phone etc. no success. The earpiece stays dead! Does anyone have an idea? Even just a way to test ist if it is the switch or earpiece itself? I am quite lost on this one since i cant go to an apple store to get it fixed as mine is jailbroken, hacked and I am New Zealand with no support for the iphone in the first place.

    ANY suggestions would help me a great deal! Do you think there will be a way to turn the "shut of earpiece when headphone is plugged in" somehow off? It is so annoying!

    Thanks heaps fro your help!

    I found a guide for your problem, it involves a q-tip (with most of the tip clipped off) and windex, just remember to do this with your iphone upside down and to keep the tip of the clipped q-tip moist not wet. Insert it on the plug and roll it. Be carefull not to get windex inside your iphone because this could cause a short and fry your iphone.
    Mi issue is low volume, not dead earpeice though.
    Good luck

    So I downgraded to 1.1.1 (for some reason i couldn't downgrade to 1.0.2) and virginized. Upgraded back to 1.1.2 and got back some of the volume (or at least thats what I think) anyone else had trouble downgrading to 1.0.2?
