My ear speaker does not work 3gs

For some reason the forum won't let me update my comment

Alex Jensen kindly answered: This is the part which holds the earpiece speaker. It could be a broken cable #3 or some other damage. Does the proximity sensor respond normally? IE does the screen shut off when covering the top portion of the phone while on a call?

I just bought the Front Panel Assembly and installed it yesterday. The screen does shut off when covering the top portion of the phone.

Thanks in advance

Is this a good question?

I am pretty sure that the cable #3 is not broken (I just bought it), I reinstalled my old front panel and the ear speaker works perfectly.


Anyone please?

you will need to clean and inspect the connection on the motherboard, you may have damaged pins. also try a hard reset. hold power and home buttons for 10 secs until apple logo appears and then allow to reboot-this may allow the iphone to recognise the new hardware.
