When replacing parts does not provide a solution or resuscitate your device, the only explanation is a failure of the Main Board or the Logic Board.
When a device suffers damage, the obvious problem(s) appear to be a component, for example a screen or a charging port. These component failures are readily and immediately experienced by the user to be the proximate problem. Replacing the damaged or non-functional component would seem to be the obvious solution. Thus, a user comes to The TechKnow Space to have this problem remediated/repaired. Typically the doctor (our seasoned technicians) have no problem doing this.
Sometimes however, replacing/repairing components turns out to be an exercise in futility. Further diagnostics establishes the problem to be resident in the Main Logic Board. The replacement of these logic boards is prohibitive and best left alone. It’s time to move forward to a new device.
Bear in mind that these mainboard failures are a result of the initial damage to the device that prompted a visit to the repair shop even though it is not intuitively obvious.
If you experience an issue where your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus refuses to deliver audio through the earpiece (you can't hear phone calls, speaker not working, receiver not working), or only delivering audio when the speakerphone option is turned on:
Follow these steps, testing after each:
Make sure nothing is blocking the receiver, such as a case or film. If you have a new iPhone 7, remove the plastic film on the front and back of the device.
Check the receiver opening to see if it's blocked or dirty.
While you're on a call, turn on speakerphone.
Reset your iPhone by holding down the sleep and home buttons until the Apple logo appears;
Restore your iPhone: Click the Restore button under the Summary tab. Restoring the phone will erase contacts, calendars, photos and other data on the phone, but will restore automatically backed-up information including text messages, notes, call history, contact favorites, sound settings, widget settings, etc.
If none of these techniques work you can drop in at any our locations located in Mississauga/Toronto & our technicians will be happy to assist you.
Awesome service! Got my phone repaired within an hour :) definitely satisfied, would recommend to anyone who needs repairs or diagnostics with their electronics!
IPHONE 6, 6 Plus EARPIECE / EARSPEAKER REPLACEMENT
The iPhone earpiece (or the earspeaker) can be found at the top of the iPhone screen. It is the part of your iPhone which allows you to hear phone calls. It is held in place on the inside of the iPhone underneath the screen and connected by a flex cable to the brains of the phone, called the logic board. The same cable also connects the front-facing camera, the Proximity Sensor (which detects when you are holding your phone to your face for making a call), and an Ambient Light Sensor (which adjusts the brightness of the screen depending on the brightness of your surroundings) to the logic board.
Problems with the flex cable can therefore result in behavior and functional impairment of the earpiece, and/or proximity sensor and/or the ambient light sensor.
When the earpiece of the iPhone 6/6+ fails or is damaged, it suddenly makes phone calls much more difficult or frustrating. Without a working earpiece on your iPhone 6/6+, the only way to hear the other person on the call is by either using the speaker phone or with headphones equipped with a microphone plugged into the headphone jack – how inconvenient!
The earpiece on the iPhone 6/6+ can stop working for a variety of reasons, such as liquid damage, drop damage, loose cable connections, electrical failure, etc. The best, and unfortunately, the only solution to the issues with your iPhone 6/6+ earpiece is to get the earpiece replaced completely.
If you are experiencing problems with your iPhone 6/6+, such as:
-unclear or fuzzy sound coming through the earpiece,
-very quiet sound coming from the earpiece,
-distorted or muffled sound from the earpiece, or
-no sound at all from the earpiece
you will need to replace the iPhone 6/6+ earpiece.

iPhone 5/5C/5S Earpiece Replacement Toronto & Mississauga.
The earpiece is a little speaker located just above the display of your iPhone. It is attached to the frame that holds the screen from the inside and connects to the logic board through the same cable, which connects the front camera and the proximity sensor. When it fails it becomes very inconvenient to use the phone – you would have to talk to everyone on speakerphone or via a headset.
There can be many reasons for the earpiece to fail, like physical or liquid damage, electrical failure, etc. The only solution, unfortunately, is to get your iPhone 5/5C/5S earpiece replaced.
Replacing the iPhone earpiece will solve all of the following problems:
Muffled sound coming from the earpiece
The sound is distorted
No sound from the earpiece at all
At The TechKnow Space we always keep replacement earpieces for all iPhones, and are ready to replace it for you any day of the week within an hour.

iPhone 4, 4S Earpiece Speaker Replacement
When you are trying to talk on your iPhone, but all you can hear is static or the voice is distorted, or you can’t hear the other party at all – you need to get your earpiece or the earspeaker replaced. Sometimes the coil in the earpiece fails, or, if you use your phone in the rain, a drop of water may have gotten into the earpiece causing it to stop working properly.
The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S earpiece replacement is a very common repair. We always keep replacement earpieces in stock and our expert technicians are ready to replace one on your iPhone in less than an hour any day of the week.
