Thread: Can't Hear Out of Receiver

  1. #1
    Default Can't Hear Out of Receiver
    I have an iPhone 3G.

    I can't hear people out of my receiver when I make or receive calls. I can hear them fine on the speakerphone though. I'm not quite sure what the problem is.

    Anyone ever had a similar problem & know how to fix it?

    My dad had this same problem on his 2g phone a couple of months ago. Not sure what caused it.
    I did a restore/jailbreak and it worked fine after that.
    Not 100% sure what caused it or if indeed this is the cure, but it worked for me. Good luck

    Have you tried plugging in your headphones and then uplugging? Also try cleaning out the headphone plug.

    I restored it & also tried the headphone thing both to no avail.

    I've also checked to see if there were any ribbons loose or unplugged on the inside, but there aren't. Everything is intact.

    Try to plug in-and-out the headphones jack a couple of times, fast, so that you move the connectors briskly. That should do it. What happens is that sometimes, the connecting switch at the female jack in the phone doesn't get fully released as you disconnect the headphones, and the receiver doesn't get activated.
    Hope it works.

    so I never got around to getting this problem fixed..

    I forgot to mention that the sensor that detects whether you have the phone up to your ear gave out before the speaker did..

    Nothing I seem to do fixes my prob.

    So what I want to ask now is, what exactly do I need to get replaced?

    I just saw a video on replacing the digitizer & from what I can see is that the speaker is on the part with the brackets.

    The replacement part they sell online is only the top glass.

    At least that's what I can get from it. Any feedback guys?

    Nevermind I figured it out & I was correct. The speaker & sensor are both on the mid frame. I already ordered the digitizer so boo.. I'll just have to order this as well now.

    I have the same issue and what did you do to fix it? I opened my phone to replace the mute switch and connected everything and worked fine, but I just can't hear out of the receiver and it's driving me nuts!

    PLEASE HELP!

    Thanks,
    Vic
