An Iphone 5C With A Bad Speaker Replaced
Sunday morning as I was entering church, a blind land approached and asked me to take a look on her iphone 5c because the sound was too low. As a blind lady, she depends on sound to work out her phone and therefore it got my attention and tried to help her out but when I put the volume up on the phone it was already up but still sound was too low to hear which an indication of a bad or dirty speaker.
This is an old phone to find parts for but I was lucky to find the exact phone in my shop that has an ICloud issue but the speaker was fine.
I took the two screws off holding the screen assembly and opened the phone.
Right away I spotted the speaker and headed that directly to replace it.
It is a good procedure to start with before replacing anything on any phone is to disconnect the battery and that is what I did.
The speaker was off and when I looked inside of it, it was full of dirt and dust.
I did not bother to clean it; instead, I decided to replace the whole assembly with a new one.
Yes, the new one is on the left side of the photo. Putting it back was an easy thing to do and once I was done with that, I closed the phone for testing.
The phone actually read to me what was seen on the screen; it was to inform me about the time, date and also letting me know that the phone has no SIM card installed but in Arabic. It was loud and clear and I think the lady will be so happy to get this phone with a louder voice to hear and understand.
