How to Fix the iPhone X Ear Speaker Not Working Problem

Sometimes our iPhone X ear speaker is not working and we don’t know why. We need to tear down the phone and take out the ear speaker module to check the reason. Previously we’ve demonstrated to you how to replace the iPhone X series, ear speaker. This solution works on all the mobile phone broken ear speaker issues. We don’t have to this because this time we find the ear speaker flex is broken. Here we will show you our repair steps below.

When we test this iPhone X ear speaker, we can see the ear speaker is soundless. All other functions are normal, such as the face ID recognition, the true tone, the cameras, etc. Here we assume the ear speaker must have problems. The iPhone ear speaker consists of the ear speaker and long flex cable ribbon. We need to take this module out to check the problem. Firstly, we need to turn off the phone and loosen the pentalobe screws on the bottom. Then we take the procedure of tearing down the iPhone X screen and digitizer. When the screen is removed, we unbolt the screws and take off the metal panel to take out the ear speaker module. The ear speaker seems normal. We need to measure the J4600 connector on the iPhone with the machine, we can see all the values are normal. We measure the ear speaker connector values. All are normal, too. The ear speaker has no problems, then we check the flex. Here we find a crack on the flex ribbon. This is the reason why the ear speaker not working. Base on the case, we need to solder a jumping wire aside the crack part to fix the issue. Use tweezers to scrape on the flex, on each side of the crack. Scrapping until we see the copper wire. Clear off the scrape, apply some soldering flux on the scrapes. Coat in the copper wire and solder a 0.009m jumping wire on the scrapped copper wire, jumping across the crack part. Apply some PCB cleaner to clean the crape on the flex. After the iPhone X ear speaker with flex cable ribbon is fixed, we need to install the ear speaker back to the iPhone. Tighten the screws to fix it. Assemble the screen back, connect the flex cables, and fixing the cables with a metal bracket and screws. Don’t forget to connect the battery cable. When the iPhone screen is assembled, we turn on the iPhone and check the ear speaker function. Now we can see it the ear speaker is working normally.

Why My iPad Home Button Was Falling in After Repaired?

First of all, we need to know why the iPad or iPhone home button is sunken after the screen and digitizer reassembled. The iPad home button is fixing with a spacer on the digitizer hole. It has a long flex cable ribbon, which is closely adhered beneath the digitizer. When the home button is off from the screen and digitizer, the adhesive glue will be off and so as the spacer. If we don’t apply enough adhesive glue to the home screen and the spacer, the home button will be falling in after iPad Pro 10.5 LCD screen and digitizer assembled. On the other hand, the new replaced home button must be the exact same size as the hole on the digitizer. Some of the third-party manufactured home button or the iPad screen and digitizer may have errors with the standard size. This will also cause the problem of the home button collapsed.


Next, let’s show you how to install the iPad home button onto the digitizer screen in steps. Before we install the home button, we need to clear the remaining glue from the digitizer. Apply some T7000 adhesive glue on the position of the flex cable ribbon and past the flex ribbon closely on the digitizer. Push the iPad Pro home button with flex cable ribbon on the back slightly to make sure it is flush on the screen. When the home button is fixing tightly on the screen digitizer, we will need to paste the spacer for fixing the home button. We use 10mm Tesa tape to paste on the spacer, make sure the tape is fully covered on the spacer touching face. Paste the spacer across the home button. Press the spacer slightly and make sure it is tightly fixing on the home button. We can check the home button now by gently pressing on the digitizer screen, to see if it is sunken in the hole. We can readjust the position if it is falling in. Apply a little more glue around the home button and the spacer to make sure it is fastened well on the digitizer. After these steps are finished, we can assemble the screen digitizer onto the iPad screen.   


Finally, we advise our customers to tear down their iPad screen and digitizer and reassemble the home button. Follow our steps above to avoid the problem. Furthermore, we suggest our customers choose the original new iPad digitizer touch screen assembly with adhesive or the home button because some third-party manufactured iPad or iPhone parts may have errors with the original device.

What Cause the iPad LCD Screen Backlight dim and How to Fix it

This is a problem our customers complain about most in our shop. Some new replaced LCD screens are dim when we turn on the iPad. The same problem has happened on iPhone screens before, and we consume the issue to be the backlight circuit problem. How could this happen to the LCD screens? Can this problem be fixed? Here we would like to discuss it with you here.

Firstly, we have to know something about an iPad or iPhone LCD screen’s composition. The LCD screen is totally consists of eight layers, but only the three layers related closely to the image forming and animation on the screen. The backlight is one of these three layers. It is an LED light panel that allows the phone screen to be seen in the dark. When this light panel fails for lighting up, you will see a very dark screen and dim images, which can only seem under strong light. The reasons why this happened are complicated. For one side, some of the low-quality LCD screens are manufactured from third-party factories. These high copy screens are not matched with the original screens on the electrical characteristics. The high copy screen requires much more electric power loss than the original screen. When the backlight circuit is overloaded, it would be damaged and not work. On the other side, damages to the iPhone or iPad screens may cause the iPad screen backlight panel to fail for lighting up after iPad LCD screen replacement.      

Next, fixing the backlight circuit issue can be difficult and risky. It requires someone professional on Apple mobile device repair experience on it. Since the backlight failed for lightening could be more than one reason, the repair solutions consist of a simple filter replacement, another can require replacing the whole circuit or adding jumper wires to bypass damaged tracks. Specifics of the operation may refer to YouTube videos or google. We advise you not to try without professional guidance because these solutions are risky. Inexperienced operations may cause irreversible damages to the new screen. You may check our iPad repair guidance about iPad mini 4 screen replacement video if you have interests.

Finally, we sincerely advise our iPad and iPhone users don’t trust any “parts swapping fixing everything” from a third-party repair shop. Choose the original new LCD screens or high-quality level screens for replacement if you have to swap the original screens. All in all, we should take action for our iPad screen protection or else it will cost us a lot on repair. Besides, you may come to Etrade Supply online store for our new iPad swappable screen.
