Why doesn’t sound on iPhone 4s
iPhone is a smart phone which every year is gaining popularity. Of the reasons that on the iPhone 4s sound does not work, there may be many, but they are divided into hardware and software.
If the sound has ceased to function normally after the phone is dropped or got water, then the problem is at the hardware level, to repair itself, it is better not to try, contact the service center for help.
If the sound disappeared for no reason, no reason at all, then most likely the problem is a software glitch. Here you can try to recover the sound on their own.
Will identify the problem
To start is to find out no sound only in the speakers or in the headphones too.
Check the sound at:
- running applications;
- listening to the audio recordings;
- receiving a call (receiving SMS messages).
It happens that the sound normally heard in the headphones and in the speakers, but if you start an application it disappears, or only works in the headphones. 99% is a software error.
By the way, if sounds only works with headphones, the output is.
Follow these steps:
- plug in your headphones;
- log in to the application;
- Hold down the button to increase the volume;
- along with releasing the button, you need to sharply pull the headphones and keep the volume button.
In most cases, this procedure helps to solve the problem with sound in applications.
Also suggest to try gently flatten the top and bottom phone speaker, or gently knock on this place. If during compression or tapping sound will appear for a few seconds, then the problem is physical, hardware. Need in any case to carry in service center.
If the problem has not been precisely identified, then it may be a serious software glitch, which a reboot and factory reset to get rid of fail. Suggest to either update the firmware or re-flash the phone.
It is also worth to keep in mind that if you Unlock the phone jailbroken and installed cydia, the problem may be that. Reflashing should help.
Turn up the volume
If the sound does not work on landline phone speakers nor in the headphones, try to add the volume button to increase volume (it is located on the side of the phone). If the sound is set to maximum, but the tone you hear nothing, read the article further.
Reboot the device
If you’ve checked that the volume on your smartphone is installed correctly, but sound is still present, try rebooting the phone. Hold down the lock button until the phone turned off and then the same action will turn it back.
If rebooting did not help, I advise you to backup your data and reset the phone.
This is done thus:
- go to the settings of our iPhone 4s;
- select the item «Main»;
- click on «Reset»;
- confirm the decision by clicking in the row «Reset all settings».
Backup we do just in case, but still after resetting the video settings, music, contacts, notes and other personal data should be stored.
The problem is in the connector
The most frequently stops working sound on iPhone 4s after listening to music with headphones. People listened to the music, pulled out the headset, and then, during a call, can’t hear neither the call nor the person who is calling, and when you add sound in menu says «Headphones».
In this case, the problem in the headphone Jack. Either it’s broken or clogged. Try cleaning it with a moist cotton swab slightly moistened with alcohol, then blow a little bit with a Hairdryer. If the problem is not resolved, then the socket is broken.
Sometimes people don’t carefully pull out the headphones and plug them remains inside. As a result, the phone thinks that the headphones are inserted, but in actual fact they are not. In services bring a phone with such a problem, but not often.
Microchip sound control
If the sound stopped working following a drop of the phone, or after ingestion of the apparatus of the moisture, so the problem with chip control sound. Only one solution – to go to service center and change the chip. Expensive, but the phone will fully work. If broken this part, it doesn’t make any sound neither in headphones, or without headphones.
If the sound on your favorite iPhonewas not after a strong fall, the reasons can be many, for example:
- out of order control chip sound;
- moved the speaker from the Board;
- broke speaker;
- damaged motherboard.
This is the most common failure in the fall regarding sound.
Gets wet and the sound stopped working on iPhone 4s
The phone is quite delicate equipment. He failed from moisture, not necessarily to throw it in the river or a glass of water. You will be surprised to learn that the phones were unusable after conversations under a gentle rain, or after man inadvertently took it with wet hands.
The moisture can either completely break the phone and to sabotage certain functions, including sound. Fail as frequencies and chip sound control. To properly diagnose a failure, you need to contact the service center.
If your phone fell in the water, the first thing you need to do is turn it off and, if possible, de-energize. De-energizing takes place by pulling out the battery.
The problem is that phones ropenet direct access to the battery, that is, you need to disassemble half of the smartphone to get it. If you have no experience disassembling Apple devices, I advise you do not attempt to disassemble your iPhone 4s by yourself. Just turn it off and quickly get to the experts.

Protective mesh is clogged
If the sound is gone, not completely, but has become dim, indistinct, there was interference, then the problem is in the protective net of the speakers. You need only to be cleaned with a cotton swab. To check the efficiency after cleaning very simple.
First record on tape something, and then listen to. This will test the microphone and speakers. Suggest to clean the connector and the microphone.
Regardless of the source of the problem, I suggest, if possible, to give the phone to the diagnosis in the official service centers. In addition, it there free. If a person lives in a small village, it is likely that nearby there will be no official SP Apple will have to find out the cause of failure yourself. Stick to the above tips, and in no case do not meddle into the smartphone with no experience in this!
