I attached a new housing, and got it all looking nice and it works great at the moment, except the headphone jack doesn't want to work. When I attach an amplified source to the headphone jack I can hear sound except it's all scratchy, and faint and I can't make out a single word.
I'm not looking at getting a new phone, instead I want to get the one I currently have repaired. (I have a habit of doing my projects from start to finish)
My gut feeling is that one of the components on the mainboard related to the internal amplifier has failed. I have no intention of repairing this myself, as the solder components on the circuit board are very small and I don't have a soldering iron big enough to do that, and I'm scared I'll stuff something up permanently.
Question is does anybody know of a mobile phone repair company that specializes in repairing such problems, and doesn't cost the earth?
If it will be any cheaper to repair, I have another mainboard from an identical model that's totally stuffed (Won't turn on) I'm sure that the components related to the internal amplifier should be fine.
I was thinking of Omnitech, since there's one located just down the road from us and I've heard nothing but good stuff about them. However, I get the feeling that they only replace replaceable parts ie screen keypad circuit board etc but not actually replace components on the same board.
Anyone know anything about this?
