    Sound only works when I take the back cover off!

    Really weird thing happening to my atrix (at&t, unlocked, rooted, being used in europe): the sound works inconsistently when the back cover is on and when I take it off its crisp clear. I have noticed that I can put all of the cover on apart from the last part at the top next the fingerprint scanner. Im confused!

    It sounds to me like maybe the speaker wire is damage. In that case I will suggest contacting MOTO, but if you are running a custom ROM your warranty is useless and they will charge you full price for a new phone. The other option will be to get a replacement and fix it yourself, if you feel confident that is...

    Are you talking about the headphone jack or sound in general?

    The headphone jack is actually pretty easily removable, and yours maybe just be becoming disconnected. If there's a faulty headphone jack connection, it can wrongly detect headphones and turn off the speaker for audio. This is an issue for Motorola devices because they don't ever connect the headphone jack physically to the phone's internal board or subframe. It's laid in place then the case is snapped in around it, leaving a lot of room for things to happen. I went through 2 jack replacements on the OG Droid.

    Thanks for your reply. I have figured the exact root cause because the sound also stopped working when the cover was off: The sound only works when I press on the middle of the screen or on the middle of the back (actually it is when i press directly center of the battery when it is in the phone).

    I dont have warranty as I got this phone from america and bought it to UK. I will probably just go to one of the street vendors and get this looked at on the cheap.

    thanks guys. Please, if there are any other suggestion, keep em coming.
