    Hi Everyone,

    Newbie here. I have some issue with my Note4. The volume, especially for notification, keeps to be inconsistent. It usually starts pretty low and then it suddenly goes back to normal. Most of the time, it happens after removing the headphone from headphone jack.

    These are the things I have tried:

    Cleared the partition
    Disabled sound adaptive app
    Removed most apps
    Restore Phone Factory Fresh
    Samsung replaced back part of the phone including speakers

    Nothing has helped, this is the video for it:

    I am wondering if anyone else has had this issue? Any solution?

    Thanks

    Mine does this and I love only noticed it while playing music. Sometimes the first song I play off Pandora is real low Bx if I get a notification or once the next song comes on its normal volume. It's annoying and I haven't fund a way to fix it besides skipping songs or getting a text or call.

    I have had this problem too. Watching a YouTube video or netflix... notice if I am in and out of the app the volume will fluctuate.

    Argh - me too! System sounds show up, but there's no music volume or YouTube - any ideas?

    Hi Everyone,

    There is some inconsistency with the volume levels but one thing I did notice was consistency depending whether the headphones are plugged in or not. I'm not saying what they did makes sense but this might explain part of what you are seeing.

    You mentioned "...after removing the headphone from the headphone jack..." Android (or maybe it's just Samsung) has two volume settings depending on:
    1) when the headphones are plugged in,
    2) when the headphones are NOT plugged in

    So when you have the headphones plugged in, it changes the volume level for Media & System to what they were previously set to when the headphones were plugged in. It does not change Notification & Ringtone.

    When you unplug the headphones, it changes the volume level for Media & System to what they were previously set to when the headphones were NOT plugged in. It does not change Notification & Ringtone.

    Not saying this is the best way to do things (I find it confusing too) but this is what I've noticed.

    As they say "there's an app for that" - someone must have built an app to keep the volumes in sync and consistent.

    Have had this problem for a while and even though it hurts to see other ppl having the same issue, I am glad my phone isn't the only 1 doing so!

    Hope there's a fix for that with the new lollipop update!

    I had this issue back in November and the only way I found to fix it was to completely reset my phone. Haven't had the problem come back since.

    Close to 100 posts created or updated in the last day. Hardly dead at all.

    Maybe no one knows an answer to the question and it's not a very common issue.
