    Nexus one internal speaker replacement

    I did a lot of searching and never found what I was looking for, and thought I would post up some info on replacing the internal speaker on the N1.

    I have literally had 3 phones replaced for a failing internal speaker on my N1 over the last 10 months. I now have a rooted phone and didn't feel like dealing with any potential issues and wanted to find a solution on my own.

    I looked and looked and looked and looked for a replacement speaker for my phone. with no luck... until I came across globaldirectparts.com the speakers are 3.29, but you need to order in a minimum of 5... so after shipping it is around 25 bucks.

    Youtube search will tell you how to take apart the phone and you are set.

    I wonder why they describe it as "front" speaker?... I wish we had a front speaker.

    Isn't the front speaker the earpiece, under the grille at the top...?

    Pull the battery cover, and you'll see that the rear speaker is different...

    it is the internal speaker used for a normal calling.

    it is the correct speaker. I have ordered, received and installed... and using it in my phone

    Okay that makes sense... when I read speaker I automatically thought of media audio handsfree... wish there was a way to replace that speaker though (with something better)

    I understood that

    I was kind of re-enforcing what you said... though I understand quoting your post was misleading

    Same problem here - earpiece not working

    Hi Zivman:

    Iím having the same problem as you. Two days ago the earpiece of my Nexus One stopped working. I can only hear the other side on a call if I use a headset or the speakerphone feature. I have the phone for 10 months now and it worked perfectly before this happened.

    After some quick research around Internet forums,I found that this isnít really a common problem but has happened to other people, but these forum posts donít actually describe how the problem was solved (maybe they really werenít solved):
    Nexus One - ear piece makes no sound - Google Mobile Help
    I can't hear anything from my nexus one earpiece - Android Help
    http://www.nexusoneforum.net/forum/n...eadphones.html
    http://www.nexusoneforum.net/forum/n...hone-only.html
    http://www.nexusoneforum.net/forum/n...t-working.html

    Iím trying to rule out any potential software solutions that I could try before assuming that the problem is hardware related. Based on my initial troubleshooting, it really seems like a hardware problem, but I still have hope there may be a software fix.

    Anyway, how is that replacement earpiece working for you? Any problems? Did you need to solder the new earpiece in place or does it 'snap' in? Do you still have any left from the batch you bought? Might have to adventure myself into doing what you did...

    Thanks!!

    sorry, didn't see this till now... you likely have moved on, but regardless..

    the new speaker is held in by an adhesive, but 'pops' out for the most part. I have used 3 speakers since I posted this. they don't go out, but get contaminated by dirt/debris
