Facing issues or bugs in our mobile devices, whenever our device gets old, it’s not a new concept. The sound issue is one of the most annoying issues among them. Sometimes we face the problem of the sound issue in our mobile devices like we could not listen to the speaker sound properly in our device when we listen to music, on a voice call or sound doesn’t come from speakers. So today we will cover, how to fix any sound issue on mobile?
Why Does sound issue on mobile Occur?
The sound issue of mobile devices occurred for so many reasons, most of the time this problem occurs when dust particles or water drops enter our mobile device’s speaker. It blocks the sound coming from speakers. Sound issues can also occur due to any updates or mobile device drivers’ bugs that corrupt mobile device’s sound drivers/software. The major issue for sound issues are listed below –
1. Mobile dipped into water
This problem occurred when we mistakenly dropped our mobile phone into the water because of these water drops/ (moisture detected) came near speakers and prevent speakers from giving clear sound.
Sometimes the phone shows the headphones are plugged in, but in reality, they aren’t. Because of this problem, the sound coming from music apps or calls come into headphones instead of mobile speakers. We didn’t plug any headphones into the mobile device so there is no sound. You can only listen to music while you plug a headphone into your mobile device. This problem is very common nowadays.
3. Apps stopping speakers from preventing music
Apps causing sound problems are very common. Whenever you install any app from the play store or any 3rd party website, it asks you for permission to change settings in your system and when you allow them to do so, they change your sound settings. Because sound settings change, you will face many sound problems like no sound or creepy sound.
4. The phone goes on mute automatically
Sometimes whenever we use our phone it goes mute automatically. It mutes the speaker’s sound, that’s why we can’t listen to anything.
5. Hardware problem
If these above problems are not causing any problem, then your mobile speakers’ issue is a hardware problem. When our device gets old with time, then the chances of mobile hardware getting damaged also increases. So, one of the major issues for creepy or no sound from speakers is that your speakers get damaged with time or any other cause.

Equalizer used to increase or decrease the frequency of sound in our speaker volume and when you did wrong settings of your mobile’s equalizer it creates creepy and unhealthy music from your speakers. So if you don’t know about equalizer settings then you should turn it off or set default settings in this.

Sometimes some apps which we installed from the play store or 3rd party websites prevent sound issues. To solve this issue just uninstall those apps which you recently installed on your mobile device. To check which apps you recently installed you can check your system launcher’s recent installed apps section. If your mobile’s system launcher doesn’t have a feature like “recently installed apps” you can see it by play store. Open your mobile’s play store then go to the “manage apps & devices” option.

To be sure that this problem is mainly because of hardware we can check it by FQC test in CIT.

To see this feature just go to the mobile’s settings and go to the about phone section. There you’ll find the kernel version of your mobile device, just tap on it 3-4 times and you’ll enter into the CIT of your mobile device.
