i'm having problems with my samsung galaxy j5 (android version 9) and its sound.
yesterday, it started producing a loud buzzing sound when trying to play sound out loud. this sound continues until the media is closed. it also happens when i press up or down on the volume buttons, lasting for about 5 seconds. it doesn't happen when headphones are plugged in
so far i've tried:
- disabling chrome - setting the sound equalizer to normal - removing soundalive's permission to change system settings - clearing my phone's cache - restarting several times - updating to the latest version of android - checking that i don't have any call recording apps
for now i've downloaded lesser audioswitch to force the phone to only play sound through headphones, as scrolling through apps or web pages that try to play sound or videos is enough to trigger the problem - is this more likely to be a hardware problem, judging by the steps i've taken? or is there anything i've msised?
