Why does my loudspeaker cut out?
My iPhone is 1.5 years old. After a reboot of the phone the speaker for the ringer will work only for a short time. If it is too loud it will cut right out.
I cleaned the headphone jack and dock connector using a q-tip and alcohol. I did full restore of new system starting from scratch. Sound will come back on occasionally and if I play it a bit (especially if I turn it up), it then stops abruptly.
I can adjust the volume level of the speakers using the side buttons or slider but can't hear it.
I can choose a ringtone, it plays but I can't hear it either (the phone does still vibrate).
I can adjust the ringer volume up and down using the side buttons but no ringtone heard when a call is received (just vibration).
No clicks on keyboard use.
If I plug in headphones, it plays all sounds and when I adjust the volume it tells me the headphone volume is being adjusted. If I unplug the headphone the speakers do not operate.
My first Apple product and I am very disappointed.
This phone has NEVER been dropped, gotten wet etc. etc.
Is this a good question?
