    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

    Here's another picture guys. See how everything's turned up but there's a line through media volume?

    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.
