How to fix an iphone that has no sound
We hold no responsibly for any damage or losses you may cause to your phone by trying the below fix.
If your Iphone has stopped making any sound i.e. button presses, music or voice calls unless you insert your headphones then there is a high likely hood that either some dirt or dust has gotten in the head phone socket and caused the sensor to get stuck or your Iphone has locked up.
The easiest way to check to see if the issue is with your head phone socket is to try playing a ring tone via your menu, if you can hear the ring tone via the speaker then there is a very good chance the problem lies with the headphone socket becoming stuck either physically or via the software.
First try doing a full shutdown and reboot on your Iphone i.e. turn off the phone and then hold the off and home buttons down during the reboot.
If the reboot does not work there is probably some dirt in your headphone socket, to clean it out get a cotton bud or q-tip and cut off 90% of the cotton leaving just a bit still attached to the plastic stalk. Now lightly dampen the remaining cotton with some lighter fluid, white vinegar, window cleaner or another light cleaning fluid (NOT BLEACH AND DO NOT SOAK). Now carefully insert this a little way in to the headphone socket and move around the sides and up and down.
Normally the above will fix it, if you still have problems it is possible there is a serious issue with the iPhone and or socket, so you should pop into your local Apple shop and they will often sort it out for you for free if the phone is still in warranty.
