Hi gill,

Here are some suggestions:

1. Does the phone work on headphones/earphones?

2. Is the flight mode switched on?

3. Have you tried the app SoundAbout?

However, since your phone experienced a water damage, there could still be water on the motherboard that causes this issue. I recommend taking the phone apart (using this guide). Now lay the motherboard into isopropyl alcohol (90%) for about 10 minutes, take it out of this "bath" and let it dry for a couple of days next to a warm source (air conditioning, for example). Put everything together again and then test it again.

same here, is the isopropyl solution also viable even if the phone has been silent for many months?

Wendy, give us way more info. This is an old question and not often visited or answered, specially when a question is in the answer section. Once you give us more info on what is going on, I will convert it to its separate question so that it does not get deleted.

Same thing happened to me. I poured a little isopropyl alcohol into the bottom two holes and now everything works fine. DON'T BE AFRAID. Alcohol does not conduct electricity!
