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 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!
