Default notification volume keeps turning itself down

i have had this happen twice, the notification volume turns itself all the way down. i go to sounds and check levels and all are at the max except the notifications. Anyone else having this issue? Is this a big enough reason to swap it out, today is my 14th day, just don't want to get stuck with a issue.

I would suspect that you added an app that is doing it. If you had more time left I would suggest booting into Safe Mode and see if the problem stops. If it does then it's a bad app.

You could go back to where you bought it, fill them in on the problem, and see if there was any "wiggle room" they could offer.

Or check out an app such as Sound Profile that allows you to lock out other apps from modifying volume. I use it to switch between preset volume configurations for home/work/sleep/out.

There is a post on the Motorola forums about this. Apparently the ringer volume and notification volume are not linked. So when you raise the the volume with the volume rocker the only volume that changes is the ringer, not notification sounds. Which sucks because this works in stock android.

Volume buttons only control Ringer volume

I had this issue, but I posted this: HELP! Notification Sound Not Working and I installed Volume Control + and never had the issue again.

I use Volume Control + Pro and recommend it to anyone who will listen. I have it on a Droid X with ICS, Bionic with JB, and Maxx with JB.


The multiple volume controls in Android phones was monumentally confusing to me until I discovered Volume Control + Pro then it all made sense.

Who makes that app? I see Volume Control + but not the PRO.
Several similarly named apps.
Thanks

Here is Volume Control Plus: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.firestorm.vc&hl=en

And here is the Pro key, which pays the developer and unlocks a few functions: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.firestorm.vc.donate

You need the first installed for the Pro key to do anything.

Happened to me again today. My notifications went down, I checked my volume control +, it was up all the way. I turned it down then back up. Still no notification sounds. I had to reboot. After I rebooted, they worked again.

This is something that Motorola has to push a fix out to soon.
