No media sound, weird dock mode?
The phone: HTC Incredible S
The country: Canada
The Network: Telus
The OS: 2.3.3
The Sense: 2.1
Extra info: Not rooted anymore, problem started bout a week ago, dock mode openned alone when I plugged it in to charge at night via the oem htc usb cable and box.
-Calls automatically go to speakerphone, both outgoing and incoming.
-No media sound plays from speakerphone or wired headset.
-No locking/unlocking screen sound
-No ringing sound when an outgoing call is connecting, Just silence until the other person answers. (makes it very awkward)
-Phone will randomly go into dock mode when I charge it at night and sometimes when it's in my pocket in the middle of the day
-When I make a call, I can press the home button and then go into any media (music, video etc) and if I play it, magically the media sound does play (at the same time as the call is on). As soon as I hang up the call, the media sound shuts off even though the song keeps playing (I can see the time advance, just no sound)
When I receive a phone call, text, voicemail etc the notification sound/ringtone plays well and loud.
I can only assume the phone believes it's in dock mode all the time?
-Car panel set to NOT auto-launch
-Dock mode set to NOT auto-launch
-Media sound is set to high
-Flip for speaker is off
In the past week I have been going crazy. I have unrooted my phone, reset everything to factory, done factory resets like 4 times so far...took battery out for 3 hours...nothing worked. I have also tried wires headset routing fix, didnt work. I have tried installing invisible dock, still didnt work.
NOTES: I bought this phone second hand a while ago and have no waranty, nor do i have 250$ to buy another one. I am willing to root, use es file explorer to delete the dock mode completely, and change whatever code to make the phone forget dock mode exists. Or just make it not do anything when it enters dock mode.
Any help is greatly appreciated!!!!
