Does speakerphone work? Or the headset?I recently purchased a Samsung s5 from E-Bay. I am havig audio issues and a quick google search shows this issue is quite common.
I cannot hear the person on the other end of the phone line when I am making or receiving a phone call. How can this issue be rectified? I am hoping someone here has experienced the same problem and they can offer some guidance.
Didn't mean it as a fix, just that if speakerphone or a headset works it's possibly the speaker in the earpiece that's shat itself. Looks like it's replaceable (it's part of the casing) but you'd need a tech to do it.Nah that doesn't fix the problem, but I have heard others who experience the same problems seem to be able to rectify it by switching on speaker phone.
Problem: Can’t hear caller or can’t be heard
Some Galaxy S5 owners have encountered a problem with the audio during calls. They either can’t hear the caller or, more commonly, the caller can’t hear them.
- Hold down the Power key and tap Restart from the menu that appears. The problem might reoccur.
- Hold down the Power key and select Power off from the menu. Remove the battery and SIM card and replace them, then turn the S5 back on again to see if the problem is gone.
- If people are struggling to hear you, check the microphone. The microphone is a pin hole on the bottom of the S5. Blow on it or use compressed air to ensure there’s nothing caught in there.
- This might be related to Bluetooth. If you have a Bluetooth accessory that’s paired within range of the phone then maybe it’s trying to connect. Pull down the notification shade and turn Bluetooth off to check. You might have to go to Settings > Bluetooth and tell it to forget paired devices.
- Some people found that wiping the cache partition helped. If you want to try it, then turn the S5 off via the Power key and the Power off option. Press and hold Volume up, Home, and the Power key together. When the S5 vibrates, let go of Power. When you see the Android recovery screen, let go of the other two and use Volume down to highlight the wipe cache partition option, then Power to select it.

With the iPad, if you can interact with it through iTunes (reset it, access basic stuff) it's probably just the screen.A few issues.
Ipad screen is just white. Tried the home/lock button reset. Resord it through itunes. Still the same. Its the kids ipad now with a cheap replacement screen. Could it just be the screen?
Second is laptop. Adapter works. No lights on laptop. Wont turn on or charge battery. Not overly fussed about it. If its a cheap fix i would.
Charge circuit is probably dead. Talk to a Dell repair agent if it's out of warranty, if it's not part of the motherboard it might be cheap to fix.I have a Dell laptop. It was having more and more battery problems until eventually it began saying "Plugged in, not charging", and once the battery eventually got to 0%, the computer would die as soon as the cable pulled out.
I wasn't 100% sure if the problem was with the cable or the battery, so to be safe I bought replacements for both. So I changed them over, but when the new battery is in, it says "Plugged in, no battery detected". Put the old battery with the new charger and it's the same old "Plugged in, not charging". Couldn't find another example online of people having this problem.
I'd be taking it back and to a different Apple store if possible.Hey, i recently got my iMac back from the Frankston Apple store.
They fixed it under warranty, replaced the Graphic Card, but i have only just rebooted it, an the sound balance is off.
I went into Preferences and made sure the mix was even (Balanced)
When i drag the mouse all the way to get the mix trhough the Left side i have Audio, only when i drag it to the Right, there is nothing.
Not that it matters to much, i either use headphones (I have not checked to see if there affected yet) at night.
During the day i use powered speakers that dont run off the Macs Volume. They have their own volume controls.
Just Frustrating that i take the Mac into get fixed and it comes back with a Problem that didn't exist before it was in there care.
I looked up a few videos on youtube but that didnt fix anything
