[Q] Galaxy S4 Speaker not working.
A few months ago, my Galaxy s4 was exposed to a small amount of water. I instinctively placed it some rice for two days, but when I removed it, the speaker was making a loud crackling noise. Not knowing what to do at the time, I ignored it, and it eventually went away, but the speaker was not functional.
A few weeks ago, I ordered a new loudspeaker to try and fix it. It did not work, but if I put my ear next to it, it still made a very faint crackling noise. I then bought a new USB board (which the speaker connects to), and the same thing happened. No sound and a very faint crackling noise.
Does anybody have any other ideas of what I could try to fix it? I am out of ideas.
