    Hey I have a stock galaxy 3 and it seems like this happens at least since a day I'll go to play music but no sounds come out. I turn up the media but still nothing. Once this happened and it was because my phone was in silent. But still is there a way to play my music without having to listen to all the touch tones through my headphones. But now it's not in silent mode and still no music volume. Here's a picture to show you what it looks like. Almost like it's in mute

    So are any sounds coming out? Ringer? Are you sure that you have the sound on? (notification bar widget.)

    Yes everything else works just not media volume. Also does the sound have to be on to here media? It get annoying listening to all your clicks while your listening to your music and playing on yourr phone

    When you press the volume keys on the side of the phone the volume screen pops up. On that volume screen there is a setting cog to the right. Press it and check to see that all of your volumes are turned up. You should see three different volume bars.

    Go to the main menu settings and under sound make sure "System" volume is not at 0. Just happened to me as well

    That definitely seems to be the problem. Just looked at mine, and there is no slash through the media volume icon. I'll keep playing with it to see if I can make that happen, but so far, i haven't found anything. I can actually get slashes through every other icon, except that one. I assume you have tried restarting your phone.

    Yes I have. And I've gotten it to go back but it always seems to go back to that. Its really annoying to have to keep restarting.

    It's definitely not normal. Like Rageboardr, I haven't been able to do anything to get the media volume to get crossed out. My first guess would be that it's an app that causing it.

    What about when you pull the notifications down? Tap the sound toggle see if that changes anything.

    Mine does the same thing. I have to restart the phone to get it to correct. It is really annoying. If you find a fix please let me know.

    I also have the same problem. I called Samsung themselves to see if they could help me fix the issue. They guy told me that it sounds like a software problem. I called my phone company since I have only had my phone less then a week. They replaced it with another brand new phone. Guess what?! It happened again!!! So if anyone has there issues fixed please post so I too can have my issues fixed...thanks for any help someone can give!!

    I had the same problem with my s3. Going to task manager and selecting "Remove all applications" got my volume to work again.

    Hi, I don't know if it has any significance, but I discovered the same issue this morning (hence me being on this forum trying to fix it!), and I wondered whether it had anything to do with a new app that I'd installed - Angry Birds. So, I removed the app, went back into my Settings/Sound/Volume and the Media volume was no longer muted. Coincidence? You may want to check that a new app with its own settings may be causing the issue. cheers

    Oh my goodness I love you. I was getting so mad because I couldnt figure out what was wrong with my phone and usually im pretty good at figuring these kinds of things out! All I did was hold the home button to open recent applications and started at the top and slid them closed and after about the third one the music that was playing that I couldnt hear turned on! Thanks so much!

    I had the same problem and fixed it. Sort of....

    Two things to look at are what you use to change the volume, and recent apps, as others have now stated. A widget could be getting "caught," so to speak. If you only use the volume buttons or the sliding bar in the notifications I don't think it applies. Emphasis on think. For me it was an app that took over the sound. Like if I played that game and listened to music at the same time, you could only hear the game. It would also only happen if the phone was on silent and I opened up that game, for whatever reason it seemed to keep it like that.

    So some things to do are when/if it does happen again, hold the home button and see what apps are currently running. Go through one by one and close them and see if it changes. Most likely it will and you'll have eliminated it down to the source of the problem. Now check settings in that app to see if anything controls the sound etc etc. Play around with this, see if it helps...

    So I pretty much force closed that app

    No Media Sound

    For what it's worth I've experienced this same problem on my Bionic and once sofar on my SG3. Its never happened often enough for me to spend time to chase down the cause. Interesting discussion.

    Thanks. Same kind of issue here, but the app was Tiny Tower. Disabling "Sounds" in the settings disabled most sounds through headphones. Volume up and down tones still worked though. As soon as I rechecked the sounds setting, everything works.
