    My iPhone works fine apart from when playing out of the internal speaker. The headphones work fine and works fine when plugged into a dock. I noticed that when plugged into via USB, if i push the input of the USB into the phone slightly, it will play music out of the speakers, but when i let go it goes silent. Is there any known fix for this problem?

    Open it up and check the connector it's the big square ribbon cable on the bottom left. If its connected then there is a short and for $5 you can replace the whole unit!

    Is this the only known fix or is there other methods, don't feel like taking it all apart, but if worse comes to worst, i will.
