    My wife broke the screen on her iPhone 3GS and i managed to replace it after buying a replacement screen from eBay and watching a few tutorials on YouTube. I found it tricky enough but got there eventually but now i have another problem :confused:

    The ear speaker no longer is working, i mist have damaged it in the change over, she can't hear anyone speaking but they hear her. If she puts the call onto loud speaker she gets to hear the call.

    Is this a repair i could do myself or should it goto someone who actually knows what they are doing? lol :D

    Remove the screen and make sure the cable for the ear piece is in all the way and that you snapped down the connector properly. I doubt that you damaged the ear piece. Pm me if you did what i mentioned and still doesnt work.

    The earpiece is a common problem with third party (Asian) screens.

    Ahhhh I did forget to mention I had broken the little clip that is supposed to hold in cable 3.

    I did push it in but maybe it's popped out? If this is the case do u have any suggestions on how I go about repairing

    That's definitely your issue. Try using tape to keep it down.
