MP3's sound like a slow vinyl record!

    In the last day or so play back of MP3s (music, notifications, etc) has started to sound really bizarre, basically it sounds like someone is slowing down a vinyl record. The effect does not occur at the same point during playback, nor does it sound exactly the same each time an MP3 is played back.

    * It happens with built-in notification sounds, and those I've added. Also happens with music MP3's.
    * It doesn't seem to have any effect on call quality, nor on the call ring-tone I use when a call comes in, although if I try to playback the ringtone sound it happens.
    * It happens when using the Music app, and when an clock alarm triggers.
    * I tried stop most/all services. No change.
    * There is no visible damage to the copper speaker cover.

    Anyone experienced this before, or know what the cause, and fix, might be?

    I have notice the same problem with the built-in notification sounds the last couple of days. It goes on and off. I don't know whats been causing that. I haven't install any new apps or change any settings on my droid.
    One thing I do know is when the droid is a "sleep" is more likely to do that than when its "awake".

    @JP 818: Not noticed a correlation between the device being awake or asleep, but I'll keep an eye out to see if there is.

    @DaygosDankest: I don't have ringdroid installed, so not that.

    Have you tried uninstalling EVERY 3rd party app then a factory reset? I suspect it's not Ringdroid per se, but rather apps that don't play nice together.

    I agree it's possibly some app conflict. I've disabled all running services to try and narrow down, but that didn't help. I'm not going to delete all 3rd party apps -- there are too many for that action this early; same with factory reset.

    However, I did do a power down, and that seemed to clear up the problem. Which is great, except now I have no idea what caused it. So, I'd still be interested in hearing if anyone has had this problem and worked out the cause.
