I just started having this same problem. Just rooted my phone and installed Android Revolution HD 6.5.2 XE. I have the Regular Sensation 4G. It worked great for a couple days, now anything that normally plays through the device speaker just makes a very very quiet ticking noise. You have to hold your ear almost to the phone to hear it. Headphones and earpiece work fine. I tried flashing the non XE rom, but got the same issue. I read through 8 pages of searches and didn't find any resolution, just a few other people that had what sounded like the same issue. Has anybody fixed this without replacing the phone?

I have JUST got the exact same problem, in-call (front) speaker works, but if I switch to loudspeaker during call it goes silent, save for sticking your ear to the phone in which case you can hear that the rear speaker is making a constant clicking/oscillating type sound, albeit very quiet. This issue I initially presumed to be ROM related, but the issue persists across the board, AOSP, Stock, all ROMs. Thus I have also just ordered a replacememt speaker and will post the results.

disassemble phone and make sure the speaker is seated correctly, if it's seated correctly then you might have a duff speaker, alternatively try a bog standard rom aka default one, and see if it works
Desire DHD - ViperDHD 2.3.0
Sensation XE - Venom S 3.1.4 - SlimKat

[UPDATE] New speaker arrived, took everything apart, swapped speakers, rebuilt, booted up, pressed the volume up button- 'no sound'! Pressed the volume up button with ear to the loudspeaker and there it is again- quiet clicking sound, best way I can describe it is that it sounds like a mini tazer! Took everything apart again, checked connections over and over (bearing in mind the loudspeaker just has two pins that rest directly on to the circuit board itself- I.e not hard to check), rebuilt, rebooted, same problem! Did a nandroid of my current and flashed a stock ROM,,, SAME PROBLEM!

Either the replacement speaker is also duff, or I am seriously missing something. :banghead:

I'm stumped, love my old Sensation too so I'm relying solely on vibration to no miss calls. As I said, across the board..
I had Sultan's CM11 but had bugs so i reverted back to my nandroid of Albinoman's CM10.3, which is when it happened! Which made me think it was software related, but I've tried all ROM bases since to rule out all variables and it persists. Switching the loudspeaker and still there, checking the motherboard and all other connections and nothing makes a difference. Possibly the new speaker is also a duff?
