Default Lost sound on my phone. Volume on high, nothing works.

I just lost sound on my EVO.

No ringers, no audio in videos, no touch tones, nothing. All the ringers are turned up, it's NOT on silent mode.

I can however talk on the phone, the ear piece works. Mic works too.

I just flashed Fresh 0.5.x coming from 0.3

Anyone know whats up?

This happened to me when playing jewelust (I think it's called) which has an audio glitch where the sound turns off within 15 seconds of playing. At one point it actually glitched the audio of all my ringers. I had to restart the phone to get it working again.

You may want to post in the fresh rom forum if you haven't already done so over in XDA for this rom...
[ROM] 6/29/10 | Fresh Evo 0.5.3 | 270 rotation + vanilla lock + fresh updater + more - xda-developers <- link to devs post.

You might get more help on it there. I am running Fresh 0.5 as well and have not seen any issues with it.

What apps do you have installed? I'm with Chaucer.. I've experienced this on an in-laws Evo, and it seems to be something they've installed. Now usually a reboot should make it work, but maybe whatever you have that is conflicting has a service installed or something.

I'd say either post your list of apps and let folks scan it for likely culprits, or just start removing some and rebooting until you get it back.

Did you install a Task Killer? I have heard that they will cause sound issues. Just reaching for solutions.

Were you running Fresh 0.3 before you installed 0.5? if so did you do a data wipe before upgrading?

Yep.

I just cleared my data etc and re-flashed Fresh Rom 0.5.x and still no sound out of the speaker.

Going to flash back to Fresh Rom 0.3 now.

Well, I got my sound back. Had to flash back to Fresh Rom 0.3 to get it working.

I had re-flashed 0.5 like twice, no sound.. HRM.. I'm stumped.

Anyway mods, don't close the thread, problems not solved yet!

Going to try some stuff, experiment etc.

LOL now I know who you are on both forums . I was reading that same forum on XDA. Very strange issue you got going. I used clockworks too and have not ran into this. Interesting.

I actually wanted this name on the other forum too but it was taken so I used my old school "scene" name

Yeah no idea. Going to try the other recovery and re-download the Fresh Rom 0.5.3 too.

I have this issue constantly with certain games. Long story short - once a game repeats a certain sound effect enough times, it never plays said effect again until I've forced closed said game and relaunched it again.

Never had it kill off every audio function of the phone though.
