  • Answer to: Both speakers sound horrible ear and bottom speaker...

    Sometimes this can be caused by a bad ground or crossing connections. I have seen this problem before. What worked for me was to clean all and any connections with a small amount of rubbing alcohol. I then replaced the mic connected to the dock. If you are not experienced with soldering you can just replace the entire dock. The static should be gone from both earpiece and dock loud speaker. Good Luck "That rug really tied the room together.

  • Answer to: How to fix the power, the mute and the volume button right?

    This is the trickiest repair on iphone 3G and 3GS. The chrome power button must sit in the housing with the metal swing arm pointed to the back of the iphone(I hope this makes sense). Sometimes the button will seat shallow and not click like it should. I have cut small pice of electrical tape and placed it on the bottom of the of the chrome power button so it makes better contact with the power button flex cable. Just keep working on it until you get the desired results. Good Luck! "The greatest lesson in life is to know that even fools are right sometimes." -Winston Churchill

  • Answer to: Callers hear a buzzing sound?

    I have seen this problem before and it was caused by a bad mic and or connection on the dock. Try cleaning that connection with some isopropyl alcohol or replacing the mic only if you are confident in your soldering skills. Or try replacing the entire dock (again). Sounds like you are getting weird feed back from the mic. Good luck! “You will not be punished for your anger; you will be punished by your anger.” - Buddha
