Cleaning loca glue from a smartphone speaker?
I tried to adhere a glass screen protector to my Samsung S9+ and made a mess of the loca glue. The glue got into the top speaker grill and I tried to clean it out with denatured alcohol / methylated spirits.
Unfortunately, right now the speaker sounds crackly. I’m thinking the denatured alcohol got inside plus the partially dissolved loca glue.
So what are my options? Can I fix the speaker by bathing it in more methylated spirits or buying some electronics contacts cleaner?
Or do I have to open the entire phone, losing the waterproofness in the process, and replace the entire speaker?
Это хороший вопрос?

when i asked a technition they said the display got damaged due to the reason above
is this true pls tell

i have a Huawei p30 pro which had the same problem
i had difficulties to find isopropyl alcohol and switch to a mix of different kind of denatured alcohol @ 90° used to clean instruments which contains some isopropyl (the best being 100% isopropyl)
i could find a small syringe and inject ~10 times the whole load slowly while music with deep basses @100%, inside the speaker, the phone being tilted 45° over a bowl, so that the excess alcohol goes back without passing on the top of the phone into a bowl below.
worked fine for me
NB : the Huawei P30 pro is a waterproof phone, that might be important to know. Maybe for non-waterproof phones it is important to use only 100% isorpropyl alcohol
@Ahmed Nasym same happen with me that was not due to glue in speaker actually glue goes from sides of the panel and damage the screen circuts. I have replaced it with a new screen :( the glue have really thin particals that goes into the circut. Next time make sure to use tape on all sides of the screen to apply UV protector.
