Issue#710: iPhone 4: Volume buttons or ringer not working

  • So for two weeks now my side volume buttons don't work. When I try to change the volume the little speaker picture doesn't even show up. I can't hear any of my incoming calls or text messages. But if I turn in my iPod on it I hear the music. So my speaker does work. I can't find what I have to do. My phone is updated to IOS 5.1.1 also my phone isn't jailbroken.

  • Issue#1180978: iPhone 5: Volume buttons not working after battery replacement

    Used the iFixit kit to replace a faulting iPhone 5 battery. I can hardly say the repair went smoothly, but after I got everything back together and powered the phone on I am getting no response from either of the volume buttons. The mute switch works fine, and the buttons still provide tactile feedback with no sticking. So I am wondering if this is likely a result of the flex cable being nicked or if it's possible something was plugged back in correctly while I was reassembling the phone. I have already tried the trick of repeatedly pressing the buttons to see if they will eventually register with no success, so I can't help but think that it has to be a hardware issue. ⟐ Answered September 6, 2016 at 10:39 am -0700

  • Issue#26138: iPhone 6: Volume Down button not working following possible water damage

    I dropped my iPhone 6 in the salt water for a few seconds. I immediately turn it off and within 10 minutes had it in bag of rice for about a week. I figured that when I opened to inspect it for damage I would replace the battery, which I successfully did using the iFixit guide. Except for one water damage sensor turning red, there was no other obvious damage or corrosion. I did not completely disassemble the phone. Only went as far as battery removal and replacement. Also blew out the phone with compressed air. Put it back together and it works fine. Just recently however, the volume down button stopped working. Maybe this is due to some corrosion on a connector? The button itself feels normal. I suppose the only fix will be to replace the cable? I am now wondering if when I opened the phone up to inspect for damage and replace the battery, if I should have done a total dismantling of the phone and checked every nook and cranny for corrosion. Would that be the recommended procedure ev

    i am ready to go crazy. initial issue was volume up button was the only one that didn't work, took it to a tech place and they said it was a hardware issue and they couldn't find the piece. i went online and it seemed possible that it was a software issue. in the meantime Rogers (Canada) said it wasn't my phone because the ie number was different. i said they were sending me bills without any problem... anyways, I'm not suicidal but I'm inches from giving up and changing inept phone companies... and phone types.

    I replaced the power/volume flex cable when the power button stopped working on my iPhone 5. It was a little tricky, but I think it all went well. The new flex cable fixed the power button, but somehow the mic got killed in the process. Speakerphone and Siri work normally, but Voice Memo and regular phone calls get no sound.

  • Issue#541801: iPhone 5c: Power Button, Volume Button and Silent Buttons won't work

    My step-sisters iPhone 5C found its way into a puddle of water and was found the next morning after being submerged all night. They placed it in rice and were able to get it running again. After about half a year she started to complain about the power button on top not working. They took it to the nearby Apple store and wouldn't work on it stating that the cable for the power cable was corroded. Knowing that I purchased a replacement cable from this site and took it apart following iFixit's awesome walk-through. After the replacement was done everything tested out correctly and there were no problems whatsoever. All the buttons worked as they should. Then a couple hours later suddenly and without warning the power button, volume buttons and the silent button all stopped working. The home button still works as well as the screen and everything else. Any ideas?

    Now, I have somewhat isolated the issue and have a solution. The part I don't understand is, what part of the front display frame specifically is causing this weird ground issue? One solution was to lift up the screen and just put it back on. The other solution was to change the screen. I just had to lift up the screen and put it back on (Only need to lift up the bottom part) for my mums phone like literally an hour ago and it fixed the charging issue where the battery % would not go up and it kept saying 'This lightning cable is not a certified blah blah' which disappeared when I did the solution.

  • Issue#678686: Blackberry - Restart and volume buttons not working

    Hi everyone,I now have my BlackBerry Passport for approximately 1,5 years and never had any major issues. OS installed is yesterday morning, the restart and volume buttons stopped working. Quite annoying as I couldn't block the screen or restart the bb.To solve this, I tried draining the BlackBerry, to force a restart once I gave it some electricity again.That as such worked. However, the restarting process would proceed until 60% after which the screen went black. And stayed black. I saw messages coming in, as the red light kept flickering, but the screen stayed black. The buttons worked again, and I restarted the BlackBerry numerous times.Suddenly, after removing the electricity plug again, the screen went back on again. Hurray! However... I am back at square one: the restart and volume buttons are not working anymore.Any suggestions on how to resolve this?Thanks!!

  • Issue#832259: iPhone 6: Power button cycling and volume down not working, otherwise seems fine

    Yesterday, some coffee spilled into a tray in which my iphone6 was placed. The power button was inoperable when pressed, ie physically/mechanically , but began acting like it was being pressed sporadically (so I could not fully turn it off because if I turned it off via accessibility setting it would turn right back on). The frequency of the "pressing" increased as the day went on (again, not physically, just electronically). The volume down button also did not work. Otherwise, the phone was fine. Eventually, the battery died and it is now in a bag of rice. Any diagnostic and/or repair suggestions? Thx in advance.

  • Issue#837439: LG Optimus G: Volume buttons not working. How do I fix them?

    The power button works fine, so Im able to power the phone on and off. But the volume button doesn't work at all, up or down. When pushing either the volume up or volume down button, you can feel it click in and back out as you push it. So it seems as if it's functioning fine, but nothing results from pushing either the volume up or volume down button. It's as if the volume button isn't connected to the phone at all, it won't even wake the screen up. So I followed the instructions from this site on how to disassemble the phone, and removed the back of the phone hoping to see a way to fix it, but I had no such luck. So before I go any further, I wanted to ask and see if someone might know what the problem is, and how to fix it. I'm pretty good at working on and repairing things...So I'm hoping that this is something I can fix myself. ⟐ Commented June 27, 2016 at 8:46 am -0700

  • Issue#895921: Samsung Android Phone: Volume and other buttons working, but screen isn't. Help?

    My phone fell by accident on the floor. The screen has semi-evident markings caused by the fall, although, whenever I touch the back, the tab, and the volume button they still light up and the volume still goes up as I can hear the standard sound that the volume button does when it is clicked. Also, whenever I click the power button, part of the screen goes on for a fraction of second. My theory is that only the screen is broken but the phone still works. What am I supposed to do?
