    I have a Samsung S4 mini, none of the steps I tried worked, but taking off the back and blowing on the speakers and tapping it a little did the trick
    I hope it’s not a temporary fix
    Thankyou for this article

    Oh my goodness. I lost call volume to my Note 4 earpiece speaker after an IOS update. I tried everything including a flash reset, hard reset, and plugging the headphone jack in and out a bunch of times. I used a tiny little brush meant to be used to clean underneath the wire on braces and cleaned out the headphone jack hole. There wasn’t anything dirty on the brush, but it made my phone recognize the jack was removed. Anazing.

    Lost speaker usage only for phone (couldn’t listen or speak), all else working for with media sounds. Started when I received a call and was playing music via Bluetooth to a remote speaker. I disconnected the Bluetooth connection. Cleaned the docking station with a toothbrush (not sure that was the key), amd then restarted…and it is working again. I think the key is either headphones or Bluetooth confusion for device. Makes sense. Thanks to article for pointing it out.
