I just purchased a new Droid 1 off of Craigslist and it has some issues.
Symptoms. The phone does not put out sound from the loud speaker. No "Droid" on start up, no ringtone, no other sound from the loud speaker. But, the ear piece works so I can use the device for phone calls and I can switch to "sperakerphone" during a a call and that DOES work properly. The phone vibrates on start up, when a call comes in, etc.-- regardless of whether the phone is set to "never" vibrate or any other setting. Finally, the bluetooth works and no sound is put through the head phone jack.
Actions I have taken. I have gone though the settings and have tried various sound settings, manipulated the external volume key, removed the battery, restored factory defaults, called Verizon tech assistance for help AND took it to the local Verizon store where it was reflashed with 2.2 (2.1 was not an option). No matter what action I took or Verizon took, ther still is no sound output from the loudspeaker.
Has anyone else encountered this? Any suggested fix besides getting a new phone? Thanks for your help.
