no sound from handheld (speaker and headphones are working fine)
i bought a tour from ebay which i received today..
there was some errors in the OS (can't remember) , and there were many 3rd party apps installed on the cellphone.. so i wiped it , and the errors got fixed..
and then i started testing the cellphone .. everything was fine , so i tried a phone call .. i couldn't hear the other person in handset speaker, while i could using the loudspeaker.. at the beginning i thought the problem is related to the call only , but then i got an idea to try and listen to music via the handset instead of the loudspeaker , and again , no sound (i tried headphones, and they worked as well.. and tried plugging and unplugging them several times but it didn't help)
then i thought it might be the OS , it was v18.104.22.1680 (the latest) , so i downgraded to .983 , but still the same .. then i downgraded to v22.214.171.124 .. but no luck again (and now i can't update via DM since i need to be an active BB service subscriber.. i guess i'll need to update it manually ? , but still i don't think it will bring the sound back)
any ideas what might be the problem ? (i have no problem at all with disassembling and replacing parts if thats the case)
edit: i meant "handset" instead of "handheld" in the title.. i wiped the os using BBSAK , and installed the latest os again.. but again there is no sound.. guess its hardware issue..
