How do I fix the media speaker attached to the back?

Recently, my Droid Razr's media speaker on the back has been cutting out. I've discovered that when you push on the back where the speaker is, it will start playing again for a short time. This leads me to believe it has something to do with the contacts the speaker connects to.

What can I do to fix this problem?

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

As you can see here, the loudspeaker connects to the motherboard via pressure contacts, which is probably why pushing on them helps the connection. I can think of two fixes:

1. Your phone is less than a year old, so it should still be covered by a manufacturer's warranty. Contact them and have them "fix it" (they'll probably send you a new phone).

2. Remove the rear case and clean the speaker contacts with a high concentration alcohol. Also inspect them for any damage. The problem that lies here, though, is that if you find out that there's any damage Motorola won't honor the warranty, since you opened it. Option 1 seems like the way to go.

They are known to go out on the Droid Razr and the Razr Maxx. You can find a replacement Droid Razr Loud Speaker

I have an older rzr maxx and same problem, but noticed something else. There is a design flaw which is caused by the case. If you allow the phone to get hot a couple of times, even just leaving it in your car on a hot summer day, it warps the case. Youay notice the area around the camera lens/ speaker is rounded up and out. When new the case is flat. Knowing this I literally used a couple of Band-Aids as a bandaid. Remove the case and on the lower portion of the plastic shield holding the speaker/camera put a couple of Band-Aids stacked on top each other as a shim. This will press down on the plastic assembly, and that will repair pretty much permanently your problem. Careful you don't stuff too much in the case or you will warp it more, but pretty much the damage is done and you cannot unwarp the flimsy case. Funny, the phone was sold with the big pitch about the kevlar case, but it turns out to be the weakest case I have ever seen. So many replacement cases are sold it is ridiculous. Hope this helps.
