    Hello all,

    Ran into an issue that is driving me crazy and was hoping some one on the forum had found the fix for this. Initially discovered the issue while using tasker to set alarms based on Calendar settings. I had the calendar send a text msg reminder to my phone 12 hours before my work schedule. Once tasker saw the text, it would set the alarm using the set alarm function.

    Worked fine for me while I was on a Razr Maxx, but since moving to the Note 2, it has not worked consistently. So I tried testing setting alarms using Google voice search, and while the alarm sets, once the alarm time comes up, the alarm page shows, but no sound is output, even with the volume settings on maximum. If I go into the stock alarm app and set it manually, the alarms goes off loud and clear. The commands I used where "set alarm for " or Create reminder for " and give it a 2 minute window from the time I spoke the command. Before this would work fine and the alarm would react normally.

    Now I guess I could just set it manually and be done with it, but I would really like this functionality to work if its supposed to do so.

    Was wondering if anyone has run into this issue and might possibly have a fix. Sorry for the long post, and thanks in advance!

    It seems to work for me. After you set the alarm, go into the clock app and select the alarm you just set. Click more and see if the volume is on mute or not. Maybe somehow your alarm is defaulted to mute?

    was hoping I wouldnt have to manually select the alarm in order for it to sound. With Tasker it sets the alarm using the stock alarm....but to have open the alarm app and click more seems overkill. I'll check it out and see if it works, but I'm hoping I missed something else.

    Any way to determine how the alarm might be defaulted to mute?

    Not sure, because I just tried one and it was default to full volume.. scared the hell out of me and every one pops over the cubical to see what's going on. Maybe you have a 3rd party alarm app that muted the stock alarm when you installed it?

    finally did I factory reset to get it fixed. Not sure what caused it, but it was a pain to deal with.
