Low Volume Earpiece (still) and Proximity Sensor not working
Replaced the earpiece because of low volume; it did not fix the issue. No plastic on screen, sucked out / cleaned out the screen for the earpiece, from the outside side. Did a system restore. Still the same volume, about half of what it should be. Volume great on headphones and speaker.
Also, after this "repair", proximity sensor doesn't seem to work, as when I put the phone to my ear at the beginning of a call, it doesn't shut off the screen, and my call is dropped. Also, camera light not working either :(
Can anyone shed some light on these issues, please?
For a full earpiece speaker repair you should remove the front screen and replace the 3 piece earpiece speaker mesh. It is available from HERE
The proximity sensor comes as part of the proximity, power/lock flex cable. Is it possible that you've damaged this when changing the earpiece speaker over?
The camera light not working - do you mean the LED flash for the rear camera?
did you completely remove the screen? this could be why your proximity sensor doesn't work.the foam around the sensor gets damaged there is an easy fix.put some clear tape over both sensors. (proximity and ambient light) . and paint it black with a marker. works every time for me.
been having a problem with the led flash 2, mine kept on, even when phone was powered of. some contacts cleaner fixed this.
wish i could tell you what's wrong with the speaker but I've got no clue...
hope this helps.
