Note8: Why after exposing the device underwater, sound may not be heard clearly

Last Update Date : Apr 12. 2018

If the device has been immersed in water or speaker is wet, sound may not be heard clearly
during a call because water may get in the speaker hole during exposure underwater.


At that time, please wipe the device smoothly with a dry, soft cloth and allow to dry thoroughly
before using the


For faster drying, try using cool wind and/or shake the device smoothly a few times whilst
holding the speaker face down. 


Despite this, when some moisture remains on Mesh in front speaker, sound may not be still
heard clearly.


At this time, as this moisture can be also removed by speaker vibration during call, please check
the device’s
sound state while making call for a period of time.


If you are still having trouble with the sound after trying these tips, please contact a Samsung
Service Centre.
