    Why my incoming call ring volume is very low though I put maximum volume in sounds and vibrations tab. Can anyone help me.

    "Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a type of scan that uses strong magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of the inside of the body."

    Your speakers, and camera autofocus system both use magnetism to do their job. When introduced to a strong magnetic field they would have produced voltages much higher than what the amplifier, and controlling circuit in the phone can handle. This most likely destroyed some IC's in the device itself, so yes, a motherboard replacement would be needed.

    You're extremely lucky though. Taking any metal in an MRI machine can lead into dangerous situations. I'm surprised you were allowed to keep on your pants on, since here you always need to wear a medical overall for MRI scans!

    Honestly, the nurse there didn't do their job, if it was a set of keys it could have destroyed a multi-million dollar MRI machine...

    Check the speaker grill on the bottom, it may be blocked

    Sir, unknowingly, I have taken my mobile phone into ct scan room. After coming out, speaker is not working. But, when I connect on external speakers, though ring volume is low, but voice is normal. This is the issue. Any resolution pl.

    Recently, I have undergone mri scanning for sinus problems. Unknowingly, I kept my OnePlus 6t phone also in my pocket. After scanning is completed, the phone is in switch off mode. I opened the phone, but the speaker volume is too low and camera with blurred vision. Front camera fine. I went to customer care. He tried with new speaker also but without any result. Same low voice. He suggested to go for mother board change which is costly and kept the phone like that.
    Any resolution pl.

    Hi, try a factory reset. Back up your data (except the apps) to the cloud or a pc first.

    You kept your phone in your pocket during an MRI scan? And the hospital staff let you do that? Tbh, that's stupid on both your and the hospital's part, and you can even sue the hospital for negligence

    I wonder if it might have been a CT scan instead.

    Imagine going for an MRI, getting a CT scan instead, and not even knowing about the test you got done ;)

    Would not be such a big issue for the magnetic coils in the device, maybe more for the image sensors themselves.

    I'm guessing it was an MRI since the two failures he has match up with this more.

    True, but the strength of the magnetic field would probably shred the smartphone to pieces.

    In any case:

    It's a coin flip.

    Not necessarily, it very little magnetic material used in the phones. The 6T doesn't have a charging coil either, so the only things that would react with the magnetic field are these coils in the speakers, and focus system.

    Also Sinuses are generally done with MRI, since they deal with air voids better than CT.
