Volume is considered as one of the most important sections of your phone. However, at some point, the Volume adjusts itself when you are listening to music or watching videos without a headset. For instance, it would randomly lower the volume even your phone is not in silent mode. It can be also problematic when you play games at which the volume bar suddenly appears and turns up or down your volume. In other words, the volume turns unexpectedly all the way by itself. Actually, it would bother you too much and it is time-consuming to adjust the volume by yourself again.
How to fix volume keeps going up and down on Android
If any applications might be involved in the problem which you experience with your phone, you should run your phone in Safe Mode for a while. Here is the instruction on turning on Safe Mode:
Firstly, to fix this annoying trouble, you need to reboot into Safe Mode and see if the problem persists.
- To reboot into Safe Mode, first of all, turn on your phone.
- Next, press and hold the power button in few minutes until you will see the Power off, Restart and Emergency mode options.
- Now tap the Power off till the Reboot into Safe Mode notification window pops up.
- Finally, tap Ok.
After rebooting, Safe Mode is displayed in the lower left corner on your phone screen, so at this time you will be working under a protected boot of the operating system. This means that your phone can function normally in this mode but any apps you have installed will not be started automatically. Therefore, if the trouble is processed, it is undoubtedly that the problem you are having is most likely related to an app which was installed or updated recently.
Next, you need to power off and restart the phone by pressing and holding the Power button, and then it will show up a number of buttons on the screen, choose Restart. Now your phone will begin the process of elimination by uninstalling apps one by one until you isolate the culprit. The tip is that you should start with any apps that have been installed or updated currently, especially the ones were installed prior to the trouble.
Note: After applying the aforementioned solutions, if there aren’t any toxic apps, so the cause could be a firmware issue, which could be resolved by clearing the cache. Otherwise, it also could be either a false operating system or wrong physical hardware. If it does then you will have to bring your mobile phone to a service center and have it checked. Samsung is the most popular phone that experience this issue.
Why does phone volume keep changing by itself?
In my point of view, there are some main causes which affect Android phone volume.
The first element is the headset compatibility in case of using a mobile phone with the headphone. In particularly, headphones have multiple types of plugs which might carry a signal from a built-in microphone and remote control buttons. These signals can cause the phone to think it should change volume up or down.
The second one is that Android smartphones tend to have a feature which adjusts automatically volume to protect your hearing by reducing the volume.
Next, phone volume also can be affected by the third party applications which you have installed recently due to part of applications might mechanically regulate the phone volume.
Lastly, if your phone volume keeps turning itself up and down, let check your phone instantly to guarantee there aren’t several types of stuff such as phone case, phone holder or bag physically impinging on the volume button.
In conclusion, we hope that this advice will be helpful to you. We look forward to hearing your feedback.
