    Default nüvi 1390 sound problem

    I bought a second hand nüvi 1390 which has a sound problem. There's no sound coming from the internal speaker at volume settings of 80% and below. Only when cranking up the volume to 90 and 100%, you can hear a soft 'beep' when selecting that particular volume level. When plugging in or disconnecting the external power source, there's no beep audible (volume setting at 100%). Also no 'beep' when making menu selections, apart from when making the selecting for 90 or 100% volume level (and ONLY then). There's no 'beep' during boot of the device. No voice audible when navigating either (volume level still at 100%).

    I cleared nonvol: no luck.
    I replaced the internal speaker: no luck.
    I downgraded the FW from 6.30 to 5.30 (lowest I could lay my hands on) and back to 6.30 again: no luck.
    I tested the sound via the diagnostic menu ("behind" the battery symbol): only at volume levels 90 and 100%, I can hear a soft test tone with the selected frequency.

    Any suggestions welcome.

    Board problem maybe. Could be that the speaker connection socket has a 'dry joint' so you could try soldering the speaker leads directly to the tiny pads beneath the plastic connector. Fixed a 2595 with a sound problem that way when a speaker swap made no difference.

    I was not specific enough in my first post when stating that I had replaced the speaker. Sorry for that. Since the new speaker came with wires instead of the copper spring contacts, I did solder the new one to the board.

    I'm out then Sport. Seems like a failed audio component on the board itself, too big for me.

    Ah well, thanks for trying anyway. I may keep it... or sell it for parts. Always nice to tinker with these things.
