Default Frustrated with my Speaker

Hi there all.
I have a Toshiba Satellite a 305. Not that old. purchased around june.
I am very frustrated that my speaker is not working.
Its just my left speaker.
Not due to any programs that Im aware of.
Im almost positive that its a loose cable. Not sure how to fix this though.
When I move the laptop a certain way, then I will get sound. Other times it works fine. But Ive noticed it getting increasingly worse.
I've gotten into the inside of my laptop before, but is there something certain that I should do to try and fix this myself.
I would rather not have to take it anywhere

yes, look at the wiring, is it loose? if so can't you just solider it back on?

Is this an External speaker? Internal speaker? Headphone speakers? Earphone speakers? Headset speaker? Microphone speaker? Motivational speaker?

These are questions that I need to know before I can provide my expertise.

^ its pretty obvious its an internal speaker for a laptop..

have a look at the wiring to the speaker, check the wires for breaks or nicks and re-solder the wire back on if required, it sounds like it should just be a re-solder
