[Q] No Sound via Speaker, Headset, or Bluetooth
Hi everyone, I'm hoping someone has a suggestion for me wrt to audio problems with my wife's Sprint Galaxy S3.
On a fully stock up to date S3, about 3 days ago all sound stopped working, this includes alarms, answer calls, key press sounds, playing music. However after a reboot, it would start working again for 6 hours or so, and then quit again. I assumed this was a software issue of some sort. I have an older rooted phone which I love and have had for years, I suggested that we finally root her S3, so she could get all those benefits plus fix whatever little software problem this was.
The rooting process when fine, and the phone now has CWM and CM 10.1.2 (Android 4.2.2). However the audio issue is still there and in fact a reboot no longer fixes the issue.
I have tried pluggin in the ear buds w/ built in mic, and those too fail to work. I also have paired various bluetooh devices like mini boom boxes etc.. they all pair fine however there is no audio output from them. No audio in the dial pad when hitting the numbers. When trying to play music the DSP Manager will crash, and then the music app crashes (tried Apollo and Google music). If I go to the sound recorder and hit record, it pops up with "Internal application error.".
So it seems all audio (speaker, mic, bluetooth, and headset) is broken which again makes me think software, but even after rooting and installing a new rom like Cyanogenmod the issue is here.
Any thoughts on what else I can try? Any firmware updates that I could apply specific to audio issues like this, or perhaps it is some sort of hardware issue that is preventing the software drivers from behaving properly?
