    Default Galaxy s3 - no sound at all

    Hi guys,

    Could I ask for some help please

    I have a samsung galaxy s3, the screen got damaged on the phone so it has sat in the cupboard for 6 months +. I finally order a new screen for it and removed all the components from the old phone and put them on the new phone ensuring I did it all very carefully as to not damage anything. The phone now works but I'm getting no sound what so ever. Have done a complete factory reset but it's made no difference

    On starting up the phone, the phone took ages to update, could there be a bug somewhere? Everything worked before I changed the screen but it has been sat around for month doing nothing. I went into the test screen to test the speaker and I get nothing

    Please help

    Model number - GT-I9305
    Android version - 4.3
    Base band version - I9305XXUEMK1
    Kernel version - 3.0.31-2051278
    dpi@DELL156#1
    Thur dec 12 23.02.11 KST 2013

    Ps the new screen doesn't seem to be responding quickly enough to finger movement. Could this be the case of the issue?

    you need to reflash your phone, after that go to the recovery than clear cache and data.
    this will refresh your phone, remember do not downgrade your phone this will damage efs folder which stores imei and serial number

    your screen problem may be fixed after flashing, go to recovery and clear data and cache if you don't know how to reflash, reflashing will make your phone look new, new screen will have the same result what are you doing unless it is brought from original samsung center

    It sounds like you didn't connect the speaker correctly - time to take it apart and recheck your work.

    Reflashing will remove all the data you have installed. You can download helium app from market to backup your data

    Hi, hope this thread is still active, its the only with similar problems,
    So i accidentally dropped my phone (samsung i9300)in the water, and it stopped working, so i changed the motherboard for my fathers old phone which worked perfectly fine, except the screen. Now everything works except for no sound, no mic and if i try to watch a video is just flashing pictures from the video. I can make a call but nobody hears me and i dont hear nothing either. Is this still a hardware problem or software, beacuse before it died completly i dried it overnight and the sound and mic were working, after changing the motherboard it does not, but the mother board should not be faulty, well it worked on my father phone

    I recently accidentally downgraded my friends Galaxy s3 is there a way to fix the sound files? Or is it doomed? He had a virus I couldn't get rid of and I had an old refresh reflash saved on my computer but after flashing there is no sound.
