Pixel 3a earphone speaker replaced, not working.
My Pixel 3a got wet and the earpiece speaker started buzzing/humming/crackling, but it worked and I could hear through it! Everything else worked fine. I bought a replacement earpiece speaker and gasket from here (iFixit) and replaced/installed it. No particular issues. I reassembled after wiping all contacts, and was happy not to hear the buzzing, then realized all I was hearing was the bottom speaker (music or phone). Everything else works fine, that is: proximity sensor, front camera (nothing blocked) headphones (bluetooth and wired) - so it’s not a signal problem, all screen functions. I researched and tried all the fixes I could find. Restart, full Shutdown and restart, hearing aid not on, balance centered in Accessibility. I made SURE the gold spring contacts were oriented properly so that they would touch the 2 gold contacts on the mid-plate. I pressed to ensure the speaker was well in it's recess and even gave an extra squeeze above the speaker when reassembled (to help ensure the gold springs would make contact. I double checked the anti-static packages and they were labled with the correct parts (I even went to the trash, got them out and triple checked); so, even though the plastic earspeaker frame was a transluscent milky white and not black like all the ones I've seen shown, it had to be correct.
I'm experienced in disassembling and reassembling smartphones. Help would be appreciated.
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
