I'm having problems with my Xperia X8, where it doesn't have sound from it's speaker. No phone sound, music, games, and even alerts.

On the sound settings, the volume settings are set correctly.

Sound is coming fine while making calls, both ways.

It is even giving proper sound with headsets but sound is not coming from speakers.

Torubleshooting: Restarted.... Given soft & factory reset, but no luck.

(Android 2.1)

If everything looks correct from a software/settings perspective then I suppose you may want to consider the possibility that your speaker itself is broken. Most phones nowadays have separate speakers for media sounds and calling, so from what you described that seems possible. – eldarerathis Feb 18 '12 at 23:49

Some phones have an issue where they "think" a headset is plugged in when there is no headset. This causes the speaker and earpiece to not function. Try using my app, SoundAbout, to alleviate this issue.

I too had a same problem on Xeperia X8. I guess the cause was I kept on downloading the android apps without restarting the mobile for months. After experiencing similar issue like you I have just restarted my mobile, did not revert any settings to default or upgrade OS to latest.

It solved !!.

I'm glad it worked for you, but the OP notes that he/she has already done a restart and even reset the device. – Al E. Sep 26 '12 at 19:26
