[Q][SOLVED] No Touch Sounds or Keyboard Sounds

Has anyone else experienced issues with system sounds not playing? My Nexus does not play any touch sounds or keyboard sounds, when both of those options are definitely checked. I've rebooted, factory restored, tried a new ROM, and I get no sounds.

I do have the famed "clicking" sound (of the speaker engaging and disengaging) as though it's attempting to play, if I listen closely.

Using the Verizon Galaxy Nexus with both stock 4.0.2 and an AOSP build of 4.0.3.

EDIT: Using Volume Control + to edit the System Volume from 2 to 7 fixed the problem.

Go to settings settings > sound > volume. Make sure your music, video, games, and other media slider isn't muted.

Same problem here. I thought that maybe it was a 4.0.1 issue... wonder if it is hw related?

Have you tried connecting headphones to see if you hear anything? Maybe something got the sensor in the jack stuck?

Thanks for all the quick replies! I just had a brainstorm after posting and figured out what the problem is. I don't have an answer for HOW it happened, but there seems to be a System Volume that is NOT user-modifiable. I just downloaded Volume Control +, and changed the System Volume from 2 to 6. I can definitely hear it now!

Is there any way to increase the volume of the touch sounds?

Do you mean past volume level 7? Probably not. You could always pull the sound effects from /system/media/ui and amplify them in an audio program such as Audacity, then push them back.

Thank you, I though about it too, but then I decided against it because I may feel I want to go back to a lower volume and it would be a pain in the neck to move files back and forth.

The only way I could get them a little louder is by using DSP or similar.

True, it would. Then again, to lower the volume, you could then just modify the system volume lower rather than moving the old files back.
