Also commonly referred to as speakerphone, ringer, or external phone speaker, a loudspeaker can be more of a necessity than a luxury for many.
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
Loudspeaker problems are not always related to the speaker itself especially if you are experiencing additional audio-related issues. If replacing the loudspeaker doesn't restore functionality a mainboard repair is probably necessary.
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.

“Why Isn't My Smartphone Speakerphone Working?"
If you’re not 100% sure that your ringer is the problem (and in many cases, it might not be), our diagnostic services are exactly what you’ll need. 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.
Sometimes when replacing speakers we find the problems persist which usually means you will need a main logic board repair.
Symptoms include: no sound after speakers replaced, speakers only working sometimes, speakers crackle.
When you bring your device into The TechKnow Space for smartphone speakerphone repairs in Toronto or Mississauga, our technicians can often determine the true cause for failing or failed loudspeakers within an hour.
"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!
