Main speaker doesn't work but headphones/"speaker phone" works

I was playing around with my iPhone 3G and opened up the top glass with digitzer to see inside the iPhone. After I've done that couple of times, I realized that the speaker doesn't work. In oredr to talk to someone, I either use headphones (so annoying) or speaker phone function. Apple wants to charge me about $230 for the repair (also they weren't sure if the problem is only in LCD or the logic board).

Please help me out with what I should do.

Thanks in advance.

Also, I forgot to tell you guys, the sunsensor doesn't work as well. I am assuming it should be one whole piece that needs to be fixed...

Your headphones port is completely separate from your speakers.What you will need to get is a IPHONE 3G RINGER PORT BUZZER SPEAKER ANTENNA FLEX PART. You want to get the whole assembly already done for you because it is hard to do it yourself if your a noob. You can find this on ebay. The part if you want in America is like a max of 25 USD and Foreign is about 15 USD max. LEt me know if this helps you out.

If I read this correctly, it is the speaker for your ear that is not working (hence the headphones or speakerphone).

Your first course of action is to double-check the 3 connections that connect the front panel to the logic board (using this guide). Make sure these 3 connections are properly connected.

Apple store people were trying to fix it too. The guy there said that one cable was loose so he put it back in. But that didn't help.

Headphones and speakerphone work fine. The speaker for the ear doesn't work. I don't even know how I managed to brake it. Well, I was trying to hook up new screen+digitizer to see if it works, before I completely tear apart the old one and after that the speaker stopped working. Also, old digitizer doesn't respond all the way on the right side.

Use a q-tip (with most of the cotton pulled off) to push into the earphone jack, twist in one direction and then pull out. Worked on my second try.
