My dinc stopped ringing. Please help.
I have done a search and could not find anything quite like the problem i'm having with my dinc now; I have a dinc that doesn't ring any longer.
I noticed it yesterday when i received 2 missed calls and made sure that it was set to ring (no silence or vibrate). The volume was on max. I went to Settings/Sound/Phone ringtone and made sure nothing changed. Moved on a couple of ringtone and could not hear anything. Everything else (notification, alarm, media) works fine. The phone just refuses to ring when i get a call or when i'm in "Phone rintone" setting and move up and down on all the default ringtones. I tried soft reset (battery pull) and rebooted the phone several times; nothing. I even installed a ringtone app and changed the ringtone to different things and still nothing. So, now i have a superb smartphone that just doesn't ring anymore.
I run CyanogenMod-7.1.0-RC1-Inc.

try a factory reset and if that fails then flash another ROM. Though you very likely have a hardware problem on your hands.
Hi enlightened one. Yes i might very well need drastic measures here but i was hoping someone will have a softer alternative. For now, I'll hold off as long as possible and hope the forum will come through ...
I would do a quick nandroid and then a factory reset. If that fails, just flash back to your backup.

Thank you all. I'll give that a try and see if it does the trick.

Thanks lunas. As I've pointed out in my original post: everything else (notification, alarm and media) works fine. Good to know about the Nokia speaker though...
