    My Maxx just started playing random music and/or commercials. Nothing appears in the menu bar and I amnot sure where they area coming from.

    Probably a virus or other malware. Install Malwarebytes and a good antivirus app.

    Or it could be an app, probably recently installed. Anything that you installed recently, try removing, particularly if you don't really need it.

    The only other thing I can think of is something playing in the browser in the background. You can try opening Chrome and closing all open tabs/windows/whatever they call them. (There is a number in a box on the status bar that has the number of open tabs - tap that and then swipe everything away.)

    Try running is Safe Mode (disabling all apps you added without uninstalling them). If it stops ... it is caused by an app that you added.
