C6-01: how to clean call speaker?

Hi,

 

I have a C6-01 and after using it for about two months, I can see some dust acumulated inside the cavity where the call speaker is located. What's the recommended way for cleaning it? I suppose that just blowing air into the cavity is not a good idea, as dust may enter and pass beyond the speaker protection.

 

Regards.

you could lightly blow into it or have it send of to an nokia care point to be done correctly,mine was the same too you should buy yourself a protective case if possible.

Hi,

 

You can blow into the cavity to try and get rid of the dust, (using a biro with the refill taken out is a good way to do it) or a can of compressed air is even better. You don't have to worry about the dust passing beyond the speaker as it has a gasket so the only place the dust can go is out. A can of compressed air will cost you a lot less than taking it to a nokia Care Center

 

All the best.

remember any damage by using the biro thing or damaged cause by using compressed air WILL cost more than a nokia care center so be careful

Hi,

 

Just to clarify a bit, the compressed air i am refering to is that used to blow the dust out of keyboards etc. it should not damage your speaker and the method with the biro is just to blow gently into the the biro to concentrate the air flow a bit more.

 

All the best

What happens to that when you blow into it?
moisture travels down the tube possible water damage can occur,

Hi,

 

Do you really think that when you leave your mobile phone in a Nokia Care Center they are going to dismantle the phone to clean out the dust,or do you think they will use one of these products

to clean out the dust. As for blowing down a biro ,try it on the palm of your hand and see if it leaves moisture.

 

All the best
