    Can't get any sound from internal speaker. No notifications, no music, no media, nothing. Sound works as it should with earphones, but nothing from internal speaker. It has worked in the past, so the speaker was not DOA. I'm using superuser rooted but have not made any major system modifications and am running stock ROM. I have know idea if it is a hardware or software issue. The device has not been dropped or otherwise abused, so a hardware issue seems doubtful. Any suggestions?

    1. Use the reset button (you'll need a paper clip);
    2. Make sure the earphone connector in the tablet is clean: sometimes even with earphone plug removed the system detects one and disables the internal speakers. Look for some tutorial about how to clean an iPhone earphone connector with a cotton tab and alcohol, it's basically the same process.

    What tablet you have? If it has just one speaker maybe you got a bad solder, then you will have to open it up and check the wires... :(

    Another possibility is that the switch in the headphone socket has gone / shorted out.

    Anybody have advice on how to open up the 7022. I have seen a few casual mentions on this forum and others but nothing very 'step-by-step' -ish. Advice or a link to something i've missed would be great.

    Try headphones first: if they work, then most probably it's a hardware issue, not software. Anyway, there is a thread about ClockWorkMod for 7022 that explains how to install it. Some users reported that after installing a backup available in that thread their tablets were improved, you may want to check it out.
