Hey, everybody, I’m here today to talk to you about a HOW TO FIX Samsung Galaxy Tab A Sound Not Working, I’ll be going over some easy fixes that you can hopefully use to get the sound working on your tablet.
Determine if it’s a hardware issue
Again, the first fix that I want you to try is to try and determine if it’s a hardware issue or a software issue, or sort of an issue with the entire tablet. To do that, you want to test out the speakers and see if the speakers work. And then you want to separately test out the headphone jack. So plug in a pair of headphones, put them on, and see if you get any sound through the headphones, and then even test out to see if the Bluetooth works and produces any sound with your Bluetooth headphones as well.
So you want to do that. And that’ll hopefully help you narrow it down. If you realize that it’s only an issue with the speakers, and maybe you have a hardware problem with your speakers. If you realize that it’s only a problem with the headphone jack, then maybe you have a harder problem with your headphone jack. So sort of do a little bit of testing to narrow it down just like that.
Try turning the speaker volume all the way up
Number two, is you want to try turning the speaker volume all the way up. Now if you notice on this side of your tablet, there are these up and down volume buttons, you want to push the volume up button, okay? And you can see that I’m turning up the volume for the media right here. But I can swipe down. And it shows that the volume options for the other things, I can turn my notification volumes up and my system volumes up, okay, you want to make sure that those are on because if they’re not on and you’re not hearing notifications, then it’s probably because the volume is not on. So make sure your volume is nice and turned up, I’m going to turn it down just for now. Just I don’t want any anything popping up throughout the article.
go into the sound option
Number three is you want to go into the Settings app, and you want to go into the sound option. Okay. So if you take a look, we’re gonna go into the Settings app. And if you take a look over here in the Settings app, hopefully, you saw it, I’ll try one more time on camera. So okay, we’re going to swipe up, go into the Settings app. Now we’re gonna go into the sound option. And then you want to make sure you’re not on mute. Okay, so make sure your sound is turned on. And then you can choose your options here. Hopefully, you can turn up your volume, so I can click volume. And then I can turn on my volume from here. Similar to that many make sure your volume is turned up and make sure you’re not on mute. Once again, I’m going to put it on mute, just because I don’t want anything to go on throughout the video. Okay, so make sure you’re not on mute, though. Because obviously if you’re on mute, and your sound is down, that’s why you’re not getting any sound from the tablet.
Try restarting the device
The next thing is you want to try restarting the device, sometimes a good restart solves all the problems. To do that you push and hold down the power button right here, you see this option, these options pop up, you click Restart, and that’ll restart the device. Okay, it’s just going to restart it sort of gives it like a reboot. Sometimes actually, oftentimes, that fixes the majority of issues, glitches or malfunctions that you might be having with any sort of modern device.
You’re not connected to a Bluetooth device
Last but not least, you want to make sure that you’re not connected to a Bluetooth device. Sometimes you’re not getting sound out of your tablet, and you don’t have headphones plugged in. But you don’t realize, that you’re connected to a Bluetooth device. This happens to me sometimes in my vehicle, you know, the device will connect to my vehicle’s Bluetooth, and no sound is being produced from the device. And I don’t realize I think it’s a problem with the tablet or the phone. But in reality, it’s just connected to Bluetooth, okay in the vehicle, and I’m not hearing it in the vehicle, because that might be on a radio station or something else.
Go to your settings app
So basically, if you do that, and you want to swipe up, go to your settings app, and then you want to go to your connections that you can see shows your Wi Fi connection, your Bluetooth connection, flight mode, I have all those options right there. Or you can see my Wi-Fi is turned off.
And the most important thing is that my Bluetooth is turned off. That means that I’m not connected to anything. And you can go ahead and go into your Bluetooth options. And see Furthermore, if you’re connected to anything, but if your Bluetooth is off as a rule of thumb, you will not be connected to any Bluetooth device, make sure that it’s off. If it’s on it’s trying to send your audio signal to a Bluetooth device. And that’s obviously why it’s not working. Okay, so you want to check those things out. And hopefully one of those things works for you. If you liked this video, please be sure to give it a thumbs up let me know what you think down below as a comment.
