You’ve seen on our last posts that HTC One M9, despite of being a great device, comes with the usual issues that all Android phones have: I am talking about Bluetooth and Wi-Fi problems, Auto-rotate issues, the fact that the handset refuses to respond to the usual Double Tap to Wake command or that the Vibration motor suddenly stops working and that’s not all. There is also a significant number of HTC One M9 owners have been complaining about the fact that the volume is not working any longer on their HTC One M9.
The sound and audio problems are noticed especially when making calls or receiving calls, which puts the users in the unfortunate situation of not hearing the caller properly or not hearing the calls at all. Being able to communicate through messages and calls remains one of the basic functions of a phone, so accepting such a situation is out of the situation.
Below I have listed some possible solutions to fix the volume not working issue on the HTC One M9 smartphone, so let’s begin:
How to Fix HTC One M9 Volume Problems:
- For the start, you should turn off the HTC One M9, remove the SIM card and then reinsert the SIM card on turn on the device;
- Audio problem can be caused by Bluetooth, so you should turn off the Bluetooth device and see if this will solve the audio issues;
- Do you know that dirt and dust could be stuck in the microphone? Try cleaning the microphone with compressed air and maybe you’ll be lucky;
- Wiping cache of your smartphone can also solve the audio problem;
- At the end, don’t forget that you could also try enter your HTC One M9 into Recovery Mode. Follow this guide on how to enter the HTC One M9 into Recovery Mode by using a hardware combination, as this method is the easiest one:
