    I have a Samsung Galaxy S5. (SM-G900F) running Android version 6.0.1. I set the ringtone to maximum volume which suits me well as I am hard of hearing. For no apparent reason, the ringtone volume drops down to zero without warning and I have missed some important calls. Please, can somebody tell me how to stop this happening?

    How do I get into safe mode? Pardon my ignorance. Will I have to leave it in safe mode perpetually thereafter?

    I have installed the app "Volume Lock Pro" but it has done no good.

    Yes, Mustang, I am using the default ringtones but I cannot really leave my phone in safe mode for ever more.

    Do you have Blocking Mode/Do Not Disturb turned on, or perhaps it's scheduled to turn on at certain times? https://www.gottabemobile.com/how-to...o-not-disturb/

    Hi, B. Diddy: No I do not have Blocking Mode turned on. When ring tone disappers, I go into Sounds and Notifications and find that the slider has gone back to the extreme left hand side. I then slide it to maximum and it works fine but then, for no reason, the slider goes back to the extreme left again and there is no ringtone. How can I persuade the ringtone slider to stay where I set it please?

    If you turn the volume back up by pressing the Volume Up button, does the volume immediately go down afterwards? If so, then the Volume Down button might be stuck in a pressed state (either physically or electronically).

    Hi, when I turn the volume up, it stays up and may stay up for several hours. Suddenly, and for no apparent reason, it drops down to zero. I only then find out that I have no ringtone when somebody calls me on my landline to ask why I am not answering my mobile. I then check and find that the volume bar on my S5 has receded to the maximum left position meaning I get no ringing. I can then move it up again and all's well till the next time.

    Do you ever plug in headphones that have a volume control button, or Bluetooth headphones?
