    Ok, my wife's Veer has packed-up. Specifically, there is no sound from the rear speaker. This means that there is no ringtone, leading to missed calls and frustration. Other things appear to work fine (phone calls, headphones, etc.).

    I believe it all started three days ago, when I got a update notification for the same version that was installed. Foolishly, I let it go ahead and complete.

    This is what I've tried, after searching these forums for possible soultions:
    • I've doctored it three times, with no effect...
    • Opened the phone-up and assembled it back, then doctored it again, with no change...
    • Installed "The Ghastly Headset", "PulseAudio Restarter" and "Audioswitch". Nothing.
    • I (even) did what the unhelpful Palm help-page suggested, and plugged-in and removed the magnetic connector, like, maybe one million times.


    Any ideas to fix this? Or should give-up and move on? Now, this is just a 3 month old phone that I unpacked myself. Warranty etc. are not an option as I'm not in the US.
    Game over!

    plain vanilla Veer
    phone works great, but no other sounds

    Ok. It took a while, but we have a solution to the Veer speaker problem.

    I bought my 9 year old son a HP Veer and after 2 month the rear speaker failed like everyones. We are not specialists here, but we have an unconditional will to solve problems. Especially if it is for your child and you tell that there is a solution for everything.

    The problem is the little powerfull speaker it self. After a while it looks in, in a end position, what is not allowing the membran to return to zero position. 100% fix is to buy (if you can) a new speaker or return the Veer to let HP take care of the problem.

    90% and imediate fix is to place a very little and very soft piece of foam between the speaker housing and the speaker membran, what is pushing the speaker always back in zero position. You will not reach 100% sound quality but 90. As smaler and still working as better for the sound quality. Also try around with the position of the little piece, to reach maximum in function and sound.

    For everyone with the speaker problem. blow or suck your rear speaker, to see whether the sound is returning for a second. Spitting does not really help!!!

    Outstanding detective work, Joska.

    A hardware solution where most would be looking at software dysfunction.

    Very cool work on the suck/blow on the speaker grill to diagnose and the bit of foam workaround.

    I have determined that the speaker is the problem
    thanks to Joska's blow test
    now I am spitting because I haven't the guts to pry off the back & try the 90 % fix
    I am planning a visit to AT&T

    Update

    Running my sons phone with the foam piece for 20 days and the sound quality became worse. Took the piece out again and the speaker is running now perfectly fine without the foam. It seems that you have to try around.

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    My wife doesn't want to give-up the Veer for anything else.

    I had the same problem, read this thread, went to try it and the speaker was working again. (after 2 days of not) You guys are awesome. Just reading the thread fixed my phone. :-)
