Default Temporarily blown speaker

I just encountered a strange problem. As I was listening to Google Voice Search kindly tell me the weather, the response sounded strange... "crackling" doesn't describe it correctly, but it sounded as if it was coming through a cell phone with bad reception. I then tried to play some music and it had a similar sound.

At first I was worried that after a good 7 months, the speakers on my GN10 had magically blown out.

But I reset the tablet and now it's fine.

Has this happened to anyone? Should I be concerned about it happening again (or more frequently) or shrug it off as a one time bug?


I'm glad to see the warranty is 12 months (and not 6 months as I originally thought), because I wonder if this is worth sending in to Samsung for repair.

It's not hardware it's a software issue since 4.4.2.

Yes, it is an issue since 4.4.2 and you don't need to reset to fix it. Just put the Note to sleep using the power button, wait 5 or 10 seconds and then unlock again. Make sure you wait the 5 or 10 seconds since it doesn't seem to work if you lock/unlock immediately. If it doesn't work the first time, try a few more times. It works for me and it beats rebooting.
