Starting last night, my phone has been refusing to play media audio. The media audio is turned up as far as can go, and I have made sure that it isn't muted through accessability or any other such avenue. I try YouTube, Spotify, I've tried songs I have saved on the phone, nothing will play. Yet, my alarms sound, when I change the ringer volume from vibrate to ring within the drop down menu, it makes the little 'bloop' noise. When I turn the media volume up to the max and try to listen for sound while I play a song, there is nothing; not even the faint, distorted sound that sometimes happens when music is playing and it gets wet. It's just nothing. I have restarted the phone, both with the restart button and the good ole fashioned way. I have cleared the cache partition. I made sure the phone had the latest updates. I have done a soft reset. I have booted into safe mode. I have disconnected bluetooth. I have tried everything I can find short of doing a hard reset on the phone, which I REALLY hope is not the only answer here, as I don't want to have to redo everything on this phone. I will say that I noticed the media volume slider is orange, which I only recall it being when the phone was playing through bluetooth. However, my phone is not playing any music through anything, bluetooth or otherwise. Please help. Thank you.
