So here's a deal - I have my z fold3 for almost a year now and I've started to have some weird problems with internal screen. First I couldn't switch from external to internal instantly - I needed to turn off screen when folded, open it and turn on screen. It fixed itself after couple of days. No there's a new problem - when phone is opened there's no sound. When I close it - it starts to play... Any ideas how to fixed it without doing hard reset? I tried safe mode.

I have the exact same issues and also in the same order as yours!
In addition I also have the S Pen dead zone issue.
All these came very recently after a software update.
It's so frustrating.

I'm also having SPEN DEAD ZONES..
Posted a message for that in XDA FORUM also..
Posted a video on YouTube also..

But it seems this problem is a new one.. nobody is facing until they will update their phone for this "NEW TASKBAR" FEATURE..

Exact same problem here. Can't switch to internal, resolved by itself. (or by hard reset) Now no sound when full open. When half open under 90 degree it plays sound, more than 90 sound dissappear.

Middle creast SPen dead zone +

Happened after the recent update...???

SAMSUNG should do something about it..

At first I though my screen had some problem, and being a premium device we don't expect these products to malfunction like this..

I just tried it on my unlocked and updated UK model.
No issues with sound or s pen input here.

So, wonder if it's a geographical update issue?

I have exactly the same problem,

Resolved the switching screen to tablet mode by "resetting all settings" option

Regarding sound, I couldn’t find a solution

I think only fix to this just send it to samsung for repair. Probably the switch for fold detector causes all of this.
