Ear Speaker + Loud Speaker Not Working only when on Calls

As title says, strange issue with a Samsung S6 Edge.

Started happening randomly couple days ago. Not dropped / exposed to water / updated in any way.

When on call the Loud Speaker and Ear Speaker don't work at all and intermittently sound with buzzing / static.

Outside of calls, both function perfectly.

Tried full factory reset, different sim cards, checked internals all looked okay.

I'm thinking some sort of interference issue? Anyone have any idea what this could be or what is causing it?

Any help is greatly appreciated - thank you!

What do you mean, only calls? When else are you using your ear speaker? What about voice messages?


It only happens during a call.

I used a couple apps to test ear speaker + loud speaker outside of calls and both worked perfectly.

Same results during voicemail. Mic works fine

Back up everything to your sd card, try updating your carrier settings. If that doesn't take, try a restore

Tried factory restore, where can carrier settings be updated?


Tried multiple carrier / apn settings, full restore, flash to stock.

Still not resolved, any other ideas?


Update, it only does this in certain areas in city.

Some areas works fine.

Board issue - cellular ic?


Your ear speaker only works in certain areas? Of the city?


Ear speaker , loud speaker , and headphones. Don't work during a call only in certain city areas. Yes
