I've been trying desperately by myself to fix it but after a day of trying and no luck i'm posting here for ideas! (i'm quite techy myself just in case!)
Sounds from the back speaker are gone. I can plug my headphones, listen to music etc. I can place a call and hear (but if i touch the speaker icon, nothing happens). Even when i boot/reboot the phone, the usual music from bootlogo isnt going anymore.
I've had my S5 (Europe model) for 2 weeks now and all has been ok so far (just migrated from iphone). Can't say everything is perfect and less user friendly but yeah, you get used to it !
Not saying this is linked but that's the only thing i've done today.
As i have been unable to send mms but receive them fine, i was checking things here and there and saw a system update. When i checked for update it said it had a ~200mb update to do. It did it fine and after reboot everything was still working as expected until suddenly the sound went off.
I have tried to wipe the cache partition several time, had several reboots but nothing. I really really do not want to go the factory reset and have to re-install everything.. so i'm looking and open to try as many things as possible until this is my last solution.
Any help appreciated!
Edit: (just left the initial post in case in can help anyone !)
After keep trying, i thought about just completely removing the battery and leave it be for 15mins. and...it worked
Now, i want to understand...
Is removing the battery doing anything special to the OS that cannot be done via cache wipe, reboots etc ?
