to be honest id rather not try blu tac on my phone it could invalidate the warranty if it doesnt work and has to go for repair anyway. if they find blu tac stuck in the earpiece they will possibly say i caused the problem myself. rather send it in without it being messed with
I'm glad I came across this. My phone is past warranty and I was just going to replace it since I could only use the speaker phone for effective conversation. I used a few swipes of regular brown masking tape and my volume is back to normal. Such a simple solution and much appreicated. Saved me a good bit of money.
Wow!! Thanks a million. I have spent the last two days googling and troubleshooting in an effort to fix this problem with my samsung S8. I could hardly hear anything. As a last resort, I went to Metro PCS, assuming that they could help. To no avail, they seemed as clueless as I was. Unfortunately, they suggested that I spend $100 toward my deductible to replace my phone. As frustrated as I was, I'm so glad that I did not give up. I found myself searching several sites. I eventually ran across your post. It gave me the solution that I was looking for. Who in the world would have thought that it would be something so simple. 🤗 So, I took your advice and cleaned my speaker. It ACTUALLY WORKED!!! 👏👏 Woohooooo. Thank you for this remedy. Most of all, thanks for saving me 100 BUCKS. 💰💵 You ROCK!! 🙌 💖❤💛💚💙
I also found a solution on youtube. it's very easy. I had this same issue for 2q days, and before that my ear speaker was working perfectly. I did the new update on the phone and that's when the problem started. not sure if that update had anything to do with the issue, but this helped me solve the problem.
