    Verizon Reps

    I've found that the absolutely essential thing is finding a nice, honest rep in a store to talk face to face to. I had a Nexus, went through so many pointless phone calls, got completely different answers, and lies about them not having problems with the nexus. I went into a store, happened to get a really nice employee, told her I had a defective nexus, and she told me that 90% of their nexuses have been returned. Also told me I could sell my nexus to Verizon to decrease the cost of getting a Razr Maxx (which I love, except for this sound issue). Basically I found that the Verizon reps on the phone generally will just try and get rid of you; I even talked to the "executive customer service office" (whatever that is), and they were no more helpful than anyone else. So, if you haven't already, I'd try just going to stores and talking to employees. Some of them won't be very helpful, but some will, and in general I've found they're much more honest than Verizon customer reps on the phone.

On the back, locate the wide slim speaker, just beneath that, on the plastic carbon fiber material, rub your finger left to right as if you're sealing an envelope. Mine fixed immediately!!! Good luck!

    amazing - was about to factory reset when i found this - save me alot of time.

    This Happened to me following ICS update

    My phone started bugging out following ics and the no sound happened quite often, try taking a screenshot using the power and volume down keys it used to somehow solve the issue temporarily.

    It's funny it is happening in the morning, maybe something happens at night. I'm starting to think it may be related to juice defender or smart actions, as someone said in later posts.

    Just did a factory reset and will test my phone for a few days before installing juice defender or setting up a smart action.

    Let's see.

    As promised, I did a factory reset and used my Razr without Juice Defender and Smart Action for a few days and the problem didn't show up. Now I installed Juice Defender again (my battery was almost begging) and will test for a few more days.

    As I used Juice Defender for a long time before this problem started, so I don't think it is the cause of it. I think in my case it MAY be a problem with several app controlling the sound at the same time (Smart Actions and Easy Reminder).

    But, let's see... I'll keep updating with my "findings".

    Cheers

    Finally stopped working all together...

    After dealing with this issue since the begining, my speaker finally became pretty much unworkable. It got to the point where the only way it could produce sound is if I constantly pressed against the speaker, and the second I moved my finger it would stop working. This was really annoying as the only way to functionaly use the phone was to put it on speaker phone was pressing against the physical speaker. Not very convienent!

    Traded in my phone (looking back, I should have done this right away and saved some missed alarms and calls) for a refurbished... Received that, and the speaker worked great but the battery did not work on it! Even tried all the battery fixes (ICS update) and Battery training, but would still drain after 6 hours! Traded that one in, and my 3rd Maxx works perfect so far! No issues with the speaker or battery.

    If you are having the issue with your external speaker where pressing against it will bring it back temporarily, it will eventually stop working all together. I would strongly recommend not waiting for it to fail totaly and exchange it for a good one prior to when it gets to the point of no return!

    Also, I had no issues getting new ones sent out.

    I agree with tz... the speaker not working unless you press on the back by the speaker is a hardware defect and should be replaced.

    Droid RAZR MAAX 4GLTE
    #97
    My replacement MAAX just came up with the same problem this week! I was having some unrelated battery drainage issues with my original MAAX. I called Verizon on Monday and they promptly sent out a replace phone. So far, so good.
    It took me almost two days to get my phone back to where I wanted it. Restoring apps, data, passwords, home screens, etc. A real pain.
    Last evening, Friday, I was dismayed to find, when I made my first call using the speaker phone, the speaker did not work. I immediately did a Google search and found this thread. I saw the comments about pressing the phone under the speaker and sure enough, the speaker kicked in. The exact same symptom, so I would say yes, there is an intermittent contact problem for the speaker.
    It is very possible that this replacement phone has already been through the mill for the very same problem. I am going to take the phone to the local Verizon store and see if I can talk them into giving me a NEW replacement phone instead of a reconditioned unit. I'm also hoping they can transfer all my data more easily than I can here at home.
    I'll report back with the results.
    What do you expect for a $300 phone?

    If you haven't sent back your original Maxx yet, I would recommend trying to correct your battery problems with that. It is possibly the problem was something as simple as recalibrating the meter for the battery. The problem may only be that the battery meter was not accurately reporting the state of charge (ie. reporting 30% when true battery level may have been 80%). If you still have your original phone, try:

    *With phone off, charge to 100%
    *turn phone on and use til the low battery warning (10%).
    *turn phone off and charge till 100% again.
    *turn phone on, use and charge as normally would.

    There are also settings and conflicts that are known to cause excessive battery drain, which are easily corrected.

    Too late, darn!. I already sent my original one back. I don't want to hijack this thread, so I will post a new one about the styrange circumstances that made it drain.

    I went to Verizon today and I couldn't talk them into giving me a new MAAX and he just put in the order for a replacement. When I get the new one, the first thing I will do is to thump on the speaker and see how it performs.

    Updating, unfortunately, I confirmed is not an issue with Juice Defender and Smart Acions.

    Now I'm trying MIUI rom to see if changing ROM will solve the problem.
