Question Help|Gti9300 loudspeaker problem

hi everyone!

I've recently bought a new Galaxy S3, and after 3 days of normal usage suddenly i noticed that my phone doesn't ring, I have checked it and realized that the loudspeaker (speaker in the back) is not working at all, just so, all of a sudden.

I tried to reset to factory settings, root, change ROM, but nothing seemed to work, but 5 min ago i was trying for the 1 million time to play with the audio settings and the speaker suddenly played a few sounds and but than got back silent again. I guess now that the problem is not with the speaker itself but something with the software, but I don't know how to make it keep working for good!

i can't tell what was the exact thing that I did which made it work.

Please help!
tnx

Well if you rooted, flashed a rom, reset settings to default and the speaker didnt work - it cant be software surely? Yes its odd it worked slightly for a little while but if it doesn't work with factory settings, it needs to be returned.

What do you mean? to return the whole phone or to just replace the speaker? cause the speaker apparently is working..

So sounds like a hardware problem. If there is no audio even after a factory reset, contact your carrier or samsung and arrange to send it to them.

I know you said you got it to make a noise when fiddling with the settings but this could just be that a connection was made coincidentally with a dodgy wire.

It should always work with factory settings so if it does not,m there is a fault.
