What is a Loudspeaker?
Understanding what a loudspeaker is can be quite simple, even for those who aren’t technologically-savvy. In the simplest terms, a loudspeaker, or speakerphone, is the component that allows you to hear sounds without the use of headphones.
In terms of smartphones, your loudspeaker is what enables you to make hands-free phone calls and hear notifications. With tablets, the loudspeaker is essential for listening to streaming media and notifications as well. Your laptop speakers give you the ability to hear music, play games, and watch movies or television shows without headphones.
The first thing you’ll want to do (in order to have a better understanding of what could be wrong with your device’s ringer) is to test the loudspeaker function. This should be simple enough, regardless of whether you’re dealing with a tablet ringer, laptop speaker, or your smartphone’s loudspeaker.
Step 1: Access Volume Settings
The first thing you’ll need to do is access the volume settings on your device. For example, on a MacBook you’re going to want to visit “System Preferences” > “Sound” > “Output” > “Internal Speakers”
The majority of device manufacturers try to make it simple for users to diagnose simple issues on their own.
Step 2: Testing the Volume
Once you have accessed the menu for volume settings, your device should then have some type of testing feature. Whether your device plays a sound through the loudspeakers when you start to move the volume slider or if there’s an actual “Test Sound” button.
If you don’t have a volume testing feature, you can queue up a music video or any type of video to test the sound.
Step 3: Working or Not?
If you find that the sound still isn’t playing through your device and you’ve made sure the volume is turned all the way up and the mute button is off, it’s time to bring it into The TechKnow Space in Mississauga or Toronto for tablet ringer, smartphone speakerphone, or laptop speaker repairs.
Common Reasons You May Need a Loudspeaker Repair
There are plenty of reasons as to why you may be in need of professional loudspeaker repair. As one of the most important functions on your phone, you’ll surely begin to miss it once it starts to fail. Before you try an at-home device speakerphone or loudspeaker repair, it’s important to first think of what the problem could be.
The most common issue LG loudspeakers, Blackberry loudspeakers, OnePlus ringers, iPhone loudspeakers, and Samsung ringers experience is directly related to hardware. Often times people will try to use their speakerphone function and won’t be able to hear the other person on the other end of the line. Most of the time we find the speakers themselves need to be replaced or there’s a faulty connection between the speakers and the motherboard/logic board.
Another common issue users experience when trying to use their loudspeakers or speakerphone is audio that regularly fades in and out. This could either occur while the device is sitting still or when they move it from one location to another. It’s possible your smartphone, tablet, or laptop is experiencing a short between the connector affixed to the motherboard/logic board and the actual speakers.
You may be wondering, how does my smartphone’s network have anything to do with the loudspeaker? The answer is simple, if your device’s antenna is damaged, you’re going to experience a lower quality of phone calls and streaming of media because your device will have a poor connection to your service provider. In fact, a poor network connection could result in a variety of audio issues, most of which can easily be repaired as long as you rely on trusted professionals.
If you’re curious about iPhone antenna repairs, for example, if your network is affecting your speakerphone functions, visit one of our repair locations in Toronto or Mississauga today.
As a less common issue, though something that may still occur with some users, poor audio quality or no audio at all could be as a result of an application or software issue. For example, if you aren’t having difficulty hearing phone calls on speakerphone but when you boot up a specific game or app and there’s no sound, it could be software.
In situations like this, it’s relatively easy to fix at home, especially since you won’t have to worry about dismantling your device at any given point in time. All you will typically have to do is see if there are any important software updates. Also, in terms of music, if you find the audio quality of some songs is poor whereas with others it’s great, it could be where you downloaded the music from in the first place.
Why You Shouldn’t Repair a Loudspeaker at Home
Regardless of the type of device you own, it’s preferred that you don’t attempt a repair at home. Not only is it an incredibly delicate process, but also improper speaker repairs could lead to shorts on the motherboard. You might even find that removing the device’s ringer or loudspeaker is simple enough, but installation could be harder than you imagined.
Sure, there are plenty of online resources that you can use to your advantage when it comes to trying to repair a tablet ringer, smartphone speakerphone, or laptop speaker on your own, but they’re highly untrustworthy. Not to mention they’re probably filled with a lot of technical jargon you simply won’t be able to understand. It’s better to rely on professional loudspeaker repair services to ensure your device is properly taken care of.
Don’t believe us? Take a look at the brief steps below that may be involved with repairing any device’s speakerphone function or ringer function.

Our Smartphone Speakerphone Repair Services
You’re probably familiar with putting your phone up to your ear whenever you place a call, but to take advantage of hands-free talk, you’ll need to rely on your loudspeaker. Having a damaged speakerphone not only makes it relatively impossible to place hands-free phone calls but it also interrupts the performance of your ringer. Imagine being in a situation where you aren’t able to hear your phone ring when you’re across the room. It’s also impossible to listen to music hands-free while working out or cleaning.
If you’re beginning to notice your speakerphone is intermittently working and becoming more and more of an inconvenience, choosing a smartphone speakerphone repair will become more
What is a Phone Loudspeaker?
The simplest explanation of a ringer/loudspeaker is it is the component that allows you to talk to contacts, listen to media, and hear alerts hands-free and without needing headphones. There are plenty of devices that have loudspeakers and at The TechKnow Space in Mississauga and Toronto, we offer repairs on them all, including smartphones, computers/MacBooks/laptops, and tablets.
The Importance of Speakerphone Repairs
You'll never truly understand the importance of having access to a working ringer until yours becomes faulty. If you find you're in dire need of help with your smartphones such as Blackberry speakerphone repair, LG speakerphone repair, OnePlus speakerphone repair, or Samsung speakerphone repair, The TechKnow Space is here to help! We work with an assortment of different phone brands and device models when it comes to smartphone repairs in Toronto and Mississauga.
Getting Rid of Headphones
Even though headphones can be quite beneficial in most circumstances, such as when you’re travelling or in public and don’t feel like sharing your music with the whole world, they can also be a pain. With the help of ringer repairs, you have access to high-quality sound at any time. For example, if you’re sitting on the couch scrolling through Instagram or Facebook and pull up a quick video, who has time to find a pair of headphones in order to hear anything? You’re going to want to be able to press play and have the sound start immediately.
Saving Money on Sound Accessories
Let’s face it, sound accessories can be incredibly expensive, especially if you’re looking into brands that are endorsed by celebrities or that offer high-quality sound. Not everyone has the budget to spend hundreds of dollars on headphones, only to lose them or break them at some point (even though here at The TechKnow Space we offer headphone repairs). Opting to listen to music
Take a moment to think of all the times you’ve been doing the dishes, cooking dinner, or cleaning
Not everyone has access to the fancy VoIP (Voice over IP) programs and components that large companies have, and when it comes to conference calls you’re going to need to use what you have:
At The TechKnow Space in Mississauga and Toronto, we can easily help with LG ringer repair, OnePlus ringer repair, Blackberry speakerphone repair, Samsung ringer repair, iPhone ringer repair, and more.
Access to Alerts and Alarms
In today’s day and age, it’s fairly uncommon to find people buying alarm clocks unless they’re integrated into a phone charging dock. In most cases, they are going to rely on their phones for their alarms to wake up for work, remember important deadlines, and more. When your alarm rings, it goes through your loudspeaker and it would be relatively impossible to rely on the fact the alarm is loud enough when ringing through your headphones.
This same principle applies to alerts such as phone calls and text messages. All of the notifications you currently have programmed (aside from vibration and messages that appear on the screen) rely on your loudspeakers to make noise.
Without them, you’re going to have to rely on visual cues and vibration to know when there’s an update to an app or an incoming call or text. Then imagine if the vibrator motor in your phone starts to experience problems, you’ll surely be out of luck! Choosing to get a smartphone ringer repair is the better option than waiting until it's too late.
Sharing Videos with Friends and Family
There’s always a moment when you find something hilarious on your Instagram or Facebook page and you NEED to show it to a friend or a family member. It’s pretty unsanitary and really inconvenient to share headphones with others, especially if they’re
The better option? Playing the media through your speakerphone function. Though if it's faulty or not working at all, it’s going to be impossible and you’ll have to resort to the headphone method.
If you’re concerned about experiencing any of these common issues with phone loudspeakers, we suggest bringing your device into The TechKnow Space in Mississauga or Toronto where our technicians will be able to diagnose the issue and replace either the loudspeakers themselves or at worst, the logic/motherboard of your phone.
Common Issues with Loudspeakers
Choosing Professional Smartphone Speakerphone Repairs

Our team of technicians will run thorough tests to ensure that all other components of your phone are working to the best of their ability. During the diagnostic process, we are able to single out the problem and determine whether it’s as a result of a faulty loudspeaker or as a result of a faulty connection to the mainboard/logic board.

"How Do I Fix the Ringer on My Smartphone?"
When it comes to DIY loudspeaker repairs it’s best for you to have the right experience to prevent excessive damage to your phone. It’s important to remember there are many delicate steps involved
You’ll need the right items to secure your phone in place, remove tiny screws, delicately remove the screen of your phone, remove spacers, and more. Keep in mind that in the event of any excessive force you might do more damage than good to the delicate parts inside of your phone.
As an example, here is a brief summary of the steps involved
Step 1: Remove the tiny screws at the base of the phone near the lightning charging port
Step 2: Use a prying tool to pull the screen apart from the remainder of the device
Step 3: Prop the screen open but be sure to keep it at a 90-degree angle to prevent strain on the important cables inside of the phone
Step 4: Pry off the cable connector, making sure not to remove their components from the logic board
Step 5: Use a tool to remove the small screws surrounding the speakerphone function
Step 6: Remove the ringer component
Step 7: Install the new ringer
Repairing your speakerphone, as you can tell from the brief instructions, is an intricate process not for the faint of heart and sometimes, it’s best to leave the professionals to do the work!

We Repair Laptop Speakers for the Following Brands:
For entertainment buffs, laptop speakers are more than just another component inside of their device - they can be the most important part of the laptop. Whether you’re binge watching Game of Thrones on Netflix or if you’re trying to listen to a VoIP call, you’re going to need to have working laptop speakers.
Unfortunately, as useful as they are, laptop speakers are also prone to damage. There may be a time when you spill a sugary drink on your laptop and notice your speakers stop working. Or perhaps your laptop suffered a recent fall. After the accident, you’ll find yourself trying to push the volume buttons and the mute buttons in an effort to figure out exactly what went wrong.
Instead of putting yourself through the misery of playing the guessing game, you can bring your laptop into The TechKnow Space to have your laptop-speakers repaired. You won’t have to worry about trying to plug your headphones in every time you want to watch or listen to something at home.
Common Issues with Laptop Speakers
“I found a great YouTube video to teach me how to do internal laptop-speaker repairs. I think I can do it on my own!”
The idea of doing DIY laptop-speaker repairs at home might seem interesting to some, but it can be dangerous to your device. At The TechKnow Space, we do not recommend that you try to repair them at home. This is mostly because some laptop models are more difficult than others and require not only special skills but special tools as well.
When you start your search online for DIY videos to use to your advantage for laptop-speaker repairs, all of the information is always designed to make the process sound easier than it actually is. This is because they’re typically created by people who are trying to make the process sound simpler, or that are relaying the repairs they’ve done on their own. There’s is absolutely no way to verify their skill level or how trustworthy they actually are.
The other important thing to know is that guides are designed to be what they are - guides. There’s no information to assist you in the event of user-error or any factors outside of what has been written.
When you take your laptop into us at The TechKnow Space, our technicians will not only be able to pinpoint the cause of your failing speakers in a limited amount of time but also repair the issue easier than the person in your YouTube video tutorial.
The best option is always the professional option because although laptops are powerful machines, they are also delicate and should be handled with care.
As a brief example of what’s involved with an at-home internal laptop-speaker repair, you may need to:
The Benefits of Laptop-Speaker Repair
Your laptop’s speakers may be more important than you realize at first, they tend to be one of those features you take for granted until you lose them. There is an array of benefits you’ll experience once you make the decision to bring your laptop into The TechKnow Space for laptop-speaker repairs.
Taking Advantage of High-Quality Sound
Having access to high-quality sound isn’t something that’s only reserved for music buffs. The majority of people who watch television shows, place phone calls, or listen to music can tell when a song reduces in quality. The easiest way to explain it is to imagine you’re listening to the radio in your car. As you move further away from radio towers, you’re going to notice your music is going to sound muffled or more quiet than usual. Then when you get closer to radio towers, the music will become louder and clearer.
When you bring your laptop in for repair at The TechKnow Space we’ll give you the ability to listen to crisp and clear sound instead of dealing with sub-standard quality. You’ll finally be able to take advantage of the internal laptop speakers and music you’ve paid for, instead of dealing with poor sound quality.
Listening to Media without Headphones
The first and most obvious benefit of having working laptop speakers is the ability to listen to media without needing headphones. Headphones can be expensive and are typically an inconvenience, especially if you’re watching media while you’re at home. There’s nothing worse than queuing up your favourite Netflix show only to realize you have to find a pair of headphones first, only because your laptop speakers need repairs.
You might even find that depending on the model you own, your internal speakers provide better audio quality than a pair of headphones would. In this case, it can be better to have your laptop speakers repaired instead of paying for an expensive set of headphones.
Placing and Receiving WiFi Calls
Although your laptop will not function similar to your phone, by any means, it still gives you the ability to use WiFi applications to place calls to friends and family. In fact, you might even rely on WiFi calling while you’re travelling abroad.
When you’re home alone there’s no point to using headphones for hands-free calls, especially if you’re in the middle of something important such as doing dishes or washing clothes. Instead, you’re going to want to rely on your laptop speakers to transmit call audio to wherever you are.
Using Laptop Speakers During Presentations
As a versatile tool, you may find that you not only use your laptop for personal use but for professional use as well. In these cases, you might rely on your laptop-speakers to relay audio during a PowerPoint presentation if you do not have access to standalone ones.
Audio files such as transitions and small videos can really make or break a presentation, and in order to be the most effective, you’re going to need to rely on The TechKnow Space’s team of technicians to help with laptop-speaker repairs.
How We Can Help
Aside from giving you better advice than what you’d find from an average Joe’s YouTube video, The TechKnow Space makes laptop-speaker repairs easier than you could imagine.
Not only will you not have to worry about losing data, potentially damaging other components in your laptop, or dealing with dangerous electric charges, all you have to do is bring it into one of our device repair locations in either Toronto or Mississauga.
