Default Periodic Sound Loss?

Anyone experiencing periodic sound loss until a reboot is completed? This happens to me about every 3 or 4 days. I will attempt to play a sound file (whether it be a movie, notification tone, etc) and nothing will play from the phone until I do a restart and then it works?

YES! It was driving me crazy so I switched back to my 4S for a while. I don't have 4G in my home area, so I figured I'd set Maxxie aside for a while and see if some of the kinks get worked out with an update sometime soon...

Thanks for the response.....

Just curious, did you do the factory reset after downloading ICS ( I did not)? Depending on your situation (whether you did or not) and what other people may respond with, I am not sure if it is worth doing it or not.

This is really the only crazy issue I am having after upgrading so I am not sure if a "factory reset" will help with this or not......

Almost sounds like a "glitch" within the OS and maybe an update would fix it?

Just for reference, did either of you do a factory reset after installing ICS?

I did a factory reset after installing ICS.

Yesterday I noticed some erratic clicking sounds coming from the speaker when it should have been sounding my ringtone. I don't know if this is a related issue.

Yes.
I got the phone on the 16th of June and didn't install alot of my apps because I knew I would be doing a factory reset after ICS.

I have noticed that this happens after I disconnect from bluetooth and headphones. So maybe the phone still thinks it is connected?

Interesting....I guess that means there is no sense in me completing a factory reset if the problem / issue is not going to go away?

Maybe we have to wait for an update / release to ICS to fix this along with other outstanding issues? The crazy part about the whole deal is its only a "select" group of people that have these issues no matter whether they do a factory reset or not.

So, at least there goes the whole factory reset theory.......

same issue here and I mentioned this on another link so thank you for retriggering this as I wasn't getting any response.

No Reset yet.

See my recent update below as I made a correction.

I just noticed this the other night when I tried showing a friend a video on YouTube. I did a factory reset last week after a bunch of my apps went buggy. so far, this is the only glitch I've noticed since the reset

This has plagued my DRM also, installed ICS update on a brand new unit out the box. Did a factory reset too! This happened last night and instead of resetting it I went into the setting and tweaked the volume all the way down then all the way up, it fixed it without a reset. I don't know if that was an actual work around without a reset or just luck. I'll have to do some more testing on it. I suspect the "smart actions" app is the cause of this problem.

Yes,I am having the same problem,and the only way I have found to fix it is rebooting the phone. And yes I did a factory reset after the ics update

It happened again last night and I think the quick and easy way of getting it to work is go to settings and volume controls. Play with the music, video volume slide.

That sure beats turning the phone off and on.

Does stink that we even have an issue with it!

This is when I see the issue, after removing the headphone jack. The last time it happened, I had to put the headphone back in and withdraw it slowly, then my sound came back,

I am on ICS and I did a factory reset my phone last week.

I have been losing media volume as well and it seems to coincide with my accuweather widget changing from a 4x1 to 2x1 size. This only seems to happen for me while WI-Fi is on and I am able to get it to reverse simply by turning Wi-Fi off. I did reset my phone after the update to ICS including a complete wipe of both internal and external storage.

I have been trying to figure it out for a two weeks now and can for the most part make it happen when I want to. In my case it has something to do with the ICS launcher and the transition animations when exiting an app from panoramic to portrait by using the back arrow, especially the stock text message app. I was able to narrow it down by checking the media output as soon as my widget changed shape. Also if I turn off all animations the problem does not occur. I am going to do another FDR tonight just to make sure.

I have experienced this issue as well. I even let verizon send me a refurbished phone in exchange for my one month old new one. I am so stupid, different phone same problem. I now work around it by playing with the sound volume in my settings.

Yes, I've had the problem too. I "think" before I upgraded to ICS it happened after connecting to the car's BT. Some other times that I can't identify the reason. Recently, I downloaded an app called Magic Piano. Often when I close out of that app, I've lost audio until I reboot. I did reset to factory and clear the cache after upgrading to ICS.

Just wanted to post back since some other people have responded and say problem still exists....and appears it exists for a decent amount of people as well. Those that aren't having this issue consider yourself lucky...sucks to reboot the damn phone when your sound goes out....even embarrassing when your trying to show someone a video or play a tune...but oh well.....that's just the life of having an Android (LoL)

Also might add, messing with the volume controls under settings does not work for me...I have had to reboot every time and then magically the sound comes back

I had this happen once, while trying to show a Youtube video to someone - had to use the iPhone while the Razr was rebooting. I think we are still beta testing for Moto.

I'm a new member and I joined to try to resolve this issue. It only happens randomly and not that often and I have not been able to establish a pattern. Very annoying bug. Resetting the notification sound in sound setting seems to work as does a restart but just going into the sound settings is easier. I see there has been nothing on this issue since last July. Has anyone had success eliminating it.
