Default Loudspeaker has stopped working - sound only coming out of ear speaker

As the title says, sound has stopped coming out of my loudspeaker, and is now only coming out through the ear speaker. It's only just started happening. Any ideas? I really want to avoid a factory reset if possible.

did u put it underwater? if so wait about 2-3 hours and it should come back, if not do a reset or flash a different rom to see if it a hardware failure or software.

Default Same problem

I know this is two months old , but i thought to share though, I started to notice this problem last month , video ,alarms ,music ,etc all play through the ear speaker , then i restart the phone ,the loud speaker is working again , after few days suddenly it stops again and everything plays through the ear speaker. the problem is gone when i restart , but i don't know why it keeps on happening again.

Im having this Problem since a few days. External speaker stops working, only the phone speaker works. After a reboot the problem's gone. Did try a full wipe, different Roms, like Aosp, Miui and flashed original Sony ftf. Nothing worked....

I've figured out a way that works on my Sony Xperia T and S. It might work for you too. Try restarting the device in recovery mode (using the vol+up keys while booting up the device.)
