The moment I adjust the volume up or down (physical button or on screen), volume comes back up and from there it acts normally.
For example, if the volume level by default is 80% and if I start playing something on Netflix, it plays in very low volume and then if I reduce/increase the volume even just by 1, then sound comes back up to the actual level as if it never knew the volume was 80%.
I have tried many Roms like cyanogen, SGT7, Omni 4.4, Nameless 4.4 and now I'm on SlimSaber 4.3.1. As far as I can remember, it used to work fine in stock ROM and somehow broke somewhere along the way.
I am not able to figure out what I did wrong and not able to figure out an exact match for the problem even after searching posts here. I know this tab generally lacks volume and also about multiple apps to boost (ViperFx etc) this. But, I am fine with how loud this tablet is. But not the way it behaves when starting up an app with sound.
If this is a hardware problem, I don't know how everything works normal when I adjust the volume even by a little bit. Any help is appreciated.
