When your iPhone 5c volume button's not working, it can be very difficult to fix it. Luckily, there are a couple of different ways that you can attempt to fix this problem without resorting to hardware repair. The many software and hardware quirks that are built in to Apple iPhone products can be solved by examining the issue in-depth. Going through the following fixes should help you make your iPhone work cleaner and better than before, and should allow you to get your phone working without having to send it in for repairs:
Check your headphone jack
There are a couple reasons why a a volume button might not work. Sometimes it appears that a volume button isn't doing anything to raise or lower the volume on a phone because the music isn't playing through the speakers. If this is the case, it may be necessary to check inside the headphone jack. Blow inside the jack with a hair dryer or set the phone down in a warm, sunny area. This can remove any moisture that may have been trapped inside that specific port. If that doesn't work, you may need to un jam the socket. Rapidly seating and unseating headphones can remedy this, as can using a cotton swab to gently remove debris. If these strategies don't work, look in Technipages for more details.
Some iPhone problems can be fixed by simply attending to software problems. Make sure to check Settings in case there are any issues you may have missed, including muted sound. Other harder-to-spot problems can be attributed to outdated iOS software, so make sure you've set your iPhone to update its software settings. If you haven't, it can be very easy to accidentally wind up with an iPhone that doesn't work through no fault of your own.
Of course, not everything can be fixed through the methods listed above. If your phone isn't working for some reason other than those listed, it may have to do with something beyond the software on your phone. Sometimes, the handy fixes that can get people through most of their problems dealing with technology simply don't suffice when something goes truly wrong. If this is the case, then you'll need to get your iPhone 5c repaired.
