Hi folks,

Lately I have noticed that my speaker is intermittently on and off when I use my Z. If I press a bit with my thumb right next to the speaker grille the sound comes back. When I let up, it's gone again.

I get the feeling that there's a loose connection at the speaker itself, probably something that just needs a good crimp. Is disassembly a pain for this? Am I on the right diagnostic track here?

I'd hate to be soundless. The headphone jack works great. Without the speaker I can't use my Z as a reliable alarm clock or pager pest.

the speaker sits snuggly into a circular slot in the bottom of the case. it is not connected by any wires to the motherboard. Most likely, the connections are tarnished in some way. I suggest you open the z up, wipe with alcohol pads but make sure you dont touch anything else. rub the ends till it showes cleanliness. that is what i can gather. I opened my c 3200 once just to change the internal hardisk.
