loudspeaker not working after screen replacement.


im confused and angry and mere seconds away from breaking s**t!

my problem- I replace my lightening port connector/headphone etc on my iphone 5s a while ago ad everything seemed to be hunky dory, then as luck would have it my loudspeaker packed in.

i have just replaced the loudspeaker and turned the phone on and tested it without fully replacing the screen and all was fine, left music playing and started to clip the screen into place, all was fine until the corner by the speaker located and the music stopped, tried everything and it was gone, removed everything again and replaced, and the same thing happened, all was ok until the screen was refitted.

am i missing something, or doing it in a wrong way? somebody please help!

thanks in advance.

It's usually not a good idea to do a final assembly of the phone and screen when everything is fully powered on; lot's can go wrong. Lesson learned I guess.

It is possible that the speaker was not nesting properly and was physically damaged when you closed the phone. It is also possible that something shorted or the Dock flex was damaged when you did the final clip in under power. It's hard to say from here...

I would open the phone up again and carefully inspect, preferably under magnification, the Dock flex, the speaker, the gold contacts for the speaker and the logic board near the dock and battery connector. Then you may need to bite the bullet and try new replacement parts, one at a time.

Feel free to comment on this answer with your observations (or solution - this will help others in the future). I'll be happy to answer any follow-up questions.
