Samsung Galaxy Media Sound Stopped Working

"media" sound stopped working, as well as in call ear-speaker. Both these problems started at the same time, so i imagine they are related, but weird. I have samsung captivate that i just hard-reset back to stock while trying to solve this.

Two sound based problems:

1) media sound does not "work". That is music playback/media sounds do not work through the built in speaker. They do work through the headset. Notification sounds and ringing do work through the built in speaker. No even the at&t startup swoosh plays sound.

2) when in call, i cannot hear anything through the front side ear speaker. If i hit the 'speaker' button and use the loudspeaker it works. If i use a headset, it works.

I've tried everything i can think of (un-installing apps, changing settings), i've even just completed a hard reset and reformat of my sd cards with reset. Nothing changed. I am unsure what else to check or change, and since i just did a factory-reset i also don't know what else might possibly be wrong.

Media - Sound Not Syncing After Conversion / Media Player For Wmv Video Files

Anyone know of a media player for wmv video files? I downloaded a video file (wmv) and converted it to mp4. The file played in the video player (froyo 2. 2), the only problem was the sound was delayed by 2 to 4 seconds behind the video.

Problem: Media Scanner Keeps Scans - Samsung Galaxy S2 (international)

I have a weird problem with my phone. When i disconnect it from the power cord in the morning, it obsessively runs the media scanner. It scans and then completes, and keeps cycling. This is a rather new problem, and i cant figure out why it keeps doing this cycle.

I have tried turning it off and on, batter pulls, and it is annoying as ***. It prevents me from listening to music or doing anything until it finishes, but then it starts again. Its almost like the phone thinks i have plugged it into my computer, but i only plugged it into the wall.

Any fixes for this? Anyone know the process name to kill in the applications window? So annoying, and drains the battery when it keeps doing this for hours.

Issue: Strange Clicking Sound Using Headphones On Galaxy Nexus

Ok, im sitting at my macbook with bose ae2 headphones on and plugged into the computer. No music is playing, and its on mute. I have my verizon galaxy nexus plugged into the computer for development, so the screen is on. I move my phone and set it on top of a bunching of wire from the headphones and i suddenly hear a clicking in the headphones that appears to be caused by the phone being set on the wire, up near the camera. Even with the phone unplugged, if the screen is on and unlocked, there is a clicking sound. About 4 clicks per second. Repeated this process using apple headphones/speaker/controls and nothing happened, and again with the headphones that came with the phone, nothing.

This could be because they are not as sound proof as the around hear headphones, but idk. Always reproducible with the bose. No idea whats causing it or perhaps its just a fluke, idk. If anyone can reproduce this, let me know so i know im not crazy.

Galaxy S - How To Stop Media Scanning ?

Hi. There were some pics on my galaxy s that i wanted to hide. I got this application called hide it pro. I was going through the gallery, and when i sent the first image to the hidden folder, the media scanner started and it has been going on for an hour. It says 100% complete, but the process is still ongoing. When i try to open my camera or image gallery, it says media scanning, and my camera doesn't open and the gallery doesn't open. How can i stop the media scanning?

Samsung Behold 2 - Hearing Buzzing Sound Inside Phone / Get Rid Of It

I have an unlocked samsung behold ii on at&t and i was just wondering if anyone else has noticed a buzzing sound when they use stuff on twiz. Whenever i click on any of the 4 buttons on the bottom (dialer, contacts, web, or quicklist), click anything in the quicklist, or send a text using the stock samsung messaging, i hear a small buzzing sound coming from inside the phone. Something similar to the sound of a hard drive reading. I thought it might be the processor working extra hard to use the stuff samsung put on it or something. Anyone else hearing it? The phone is only a couple months old.

Media - Android Getting Rfid - Object-based Media

Ive read a recent post on this media player that uses physical objects to control media playback. It is based on radio frequency identification (rfid) that triggers various phone interactions when in the range of a wireless tag embedded inside a physical object.

Samsung Fascinate - Mic / Remote Earbud's Sound Quality Makes Them Useless To Me - Fix This

This is something i just don't understand. No inline mic's or remotes work on this device (or for the droid 1 when i had it). I did get the samsung earbuds with an inline mic, which worked, but the sound quality makes them useless to me. Is this a hardware problem? Is it software related that can be fixed easily? Are there any apps that can fix this?

I now have skull candy 50/50's which are superb. They have perfect sound quality with great bass. I'm not switching them. They have a nice inline mic with volume control and track skipping - that don't work on the fascinate! Only pause works, but nothing else. It's beyond frustrating by now.

Why is everything made for i-phones? It's not like no other smartphones exist on the market. It seems just ridiculous, especially these days with all the great smartphones on the market, to see every earbud with mics made for iphones.

What works with the fascinate? I have researched the net thoroughly and cannot find any except for samsung's earbuds. I don't know about anyone else, but this is a major issue for me.

2. No samsung app store is installed with the phone. Is there any way to do this? I want to install the asphalt 5 game.

Texting With Samsung Galaxy S

I am fairly computer literate also been using candy-bar type phones for many years. I received my nice new galaxy s just yesterday and one thing has me completely stumped. I wanted to send a text to a non-address book or non "contact" recipient, here's my question.

How can a recipient's number be manually entered into the "to" field in the galaxy s? I have tried everything with it, also contacted my network tech support and samsung and no one can tell me how to do it. Got to say this is a major drawback.

Samsung Galaxy S - Tethering Without Kies

Has anyone used their galaxy s as a tethered modem without installing kies?

According to the manual, you can just set the phone's usb settings to "pc internet" then plug it into the computer. Supposedly after that you just follow "on screen instructions" to install the phone as a modem (presumably the add new hardware wizard).

Has this worked for anyone? I tried it on two computers and the hardware wizard failed. Does anyone know where to download the necessary drivers?

Apparently installing kies installs the drivers needed, so you can then tether the phone without running kies. The problem is that kies requires an internet connection to install, so even if you carry around a kies install on the phone, you end up in a catch-22.

All of this was done on xp pro sp3. I have an international i9000 with zsjf7 baseband.

Samsung Galaxy S - Rooting Through Oclf

The most simplest way to root your android device is by downloading a app from the market, just type in one click lag fix in the search box and it will show up. Once you install this app, just go to your app menu and click on it. In it, it will give you series of options to choose, first, click 'root device/phone' after it does that, reboot your phone and hold the power button and the volume buttons at the same time when you turn it back on. When you see the menu where you are in download mode, use the volume button to select download packets. Once that is done, then your phone is rooted.

After your phone is booted up and ready to go, go back to oclf and click on 2. 0+ lag fix, this will put your phone on plane mode and will take a while to finish. Once it does finish, it will reboot and turn back on (by itself, i believe) once you get to the galaxy s logo (before your phone is booted up and on it's ui) it will take a while, so do not panic! It takes about 2 to 3 minutes for it to load up. After that, you're set and you may do what you wish to do!You must have a high end phone for this and it must be running eclair for you to install this.
