    Hi guys, joined androidforums.com with hope that you guys can help me with my problem. I've been using Spotify Premium for past 2 months. Now I'm back to Galaxy's music player and equalizer doesn't work anymore. I can press things there, but they don't do anything. Any ideas to bring equalizer experience to my phone? :)

    Are you trying to play Mp3 from your private collection or through a streaming service?

    Forgive me, I get ahead of myself sometimes. Hi, welcome to Android Forums.:)

    Hmm, what version of Android? Could be a problem with permissions. Check the application manager for the Equalizer app. See what permissions it has.

    Ok, trying to narrow this down. The song plays correctly but changes to the Equalizer have no effect?

    It's one of two things. Either your app is broken or the mp3 have some sort of write protection enabled. Downloading a third party music player app such as poweramp from above and testing can answer the question.

    Let me know if they work.
    Power amp can be a bit overwhelming, compared to your stock app.

    What if do factory reset to my phone? Will it fix the problem? What you think?

    Doesn't appear to help. Look through some of the threads I posted. The common solution is to use third party. I believe they will be superior to the stock app anyway. I use PowerAmp personally. Looks cool too.[​IMG]

    I would use Viper4Android if your phone is rooted (and busybox installed)
