    Post How to repair a damaged speaker/earpiece. BOLD



    I was using my blackberry bold approximately two weeks ago when I noticed dust in the earpiece area(PICTURE 1 below). On impulse I use the falcon air dust(can) to clean it but this time I didn't have any available in the house. So stupid me decided to use an alternative, it seemed like a good idea at the time. What I have in the garage is an Electric pressure pump for cars,soccer balls,footballs,bike tires. One word always comes to mind when you think of the electric slide, I mean pump... Strong!





    Simply put, I ruined the earpiece by dusting with a strong machine. The earpiece is located in the midplate of the bold which I will show you below. In the high tones, the sound is crackly so you would have to be speaking very very softly in order for your voice mail not to annoy me. So what is a person to do when you've ruined your bb? Jump to cnn.cn to see whether you can acquire new parts, be aware because this parts ship from hong kong it will take about 10 days(9days for me) to arrive in continental U.S.

    This is what I ordered.
    ------------------------
    2 x BlackBerry Bold 9000 OEM midplate () = $21.98
    -This is where the speaker resides. I ordered 2 of these weasels just in case I need one later.

    Beneath is the old damaged speaker.




    For decorative purposes I ordered the following parts below.
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    1 x BlackBerry Bold 9000 OEM black side button set () = $12.99
    1 x BlackBerry Bold 9000 OEM black battery cover latch w/ spring () = $2.99
    1 x BlackBerry Bold 9000 OEM black bezel () = $12.99
    -----------
    plus an extra accessory
    -----------
    1 x BlackBerry 81xx/83xx/88xx/9000 OEM trackball () = $7.99

    -----------

    All together it cost $63.94 including the 7-10 Business days delivery.
    --------------------------------------------------

    Step 1.

    Lets open the blackberry bold. There are six T5 screws, therefore you will need a T5 screwdriver. Your local hardware and home improvement store will have one. One T5 screw will be covered with a white sticker to avoid removal and VOIDING WARRANTY! BEWARE!! I am not liable for any damage you cause to your phone.



    Unscrew all T5 screws, remove the midplate.




    Step 2.

    The new parts.



    Now one of the midplates did arrive with damaged connecting needils. It still sings the sweet melody when I connected it. So its all good!



    Now that you have connected the new midplate, put back the t5 screws, enjoy your newly refurbished phone!

    ---------------------
    Blacking out the phone.
    ---------------------

    The rest is just a matter of removing the old parts, and migrating the board,midplate,keyboard to the new black contour. The voice dialing button was a doozie but I put some epoxy glue to hold down the rubber hole to the connector on the contour frame.

    Here are the rest of the pictures. Blackout ones and extras.

    Great Post

    I dropped my BB Bold in water and after some service from a technician it is now back to life but ringer does not work. If I connect hands free with it then I can hear sound but no sound at all from speaker, I can make calls and hear sound from earpiece but ring tones or music player makes no sound,can you suggest whats wrong with it as my technician say it is beyond his skills to make it work.

    That's really easy to understand because you have posted the screen shots. But I don't have that much dare to open my blackberry like the one you have shown
