When you’re trying to play music on your phone via aux, the volume might not be as loud as you’d like. If this is happening, try disabling the absolute volume option. If that doesn’t solve the problem, try checking if your AUX cable is faulty.
Disable absolute volume
To disable the absolute volume on your phone, head to the Settings menu on your device. You’ll find basic features and advanced options for managing your phone’s sound. In the Audio or Bluetooth section, look for “Disable absolute volume” and turn it off. Note that this feature only affects devices running Android 7 “Nougat” or higher.
Disabling the absolute volume isn’t difficult, but it can be confusing to some Android users. First, you’ll have to navigate to the Android device’s Settings menu. Next, you need to look for the builder or model number option. If you can’t find the builder or model number, you can try searching for “Developer Options”.
Secondly, make sure you enable the Developer options before you enable this feature. The Developer options are located in the Settings, System.
Check for a faulty 3.5 mm plug
If you’re having trouble connecting your headphone or other audio device to your computer, you may need to check your 3.5 mm plug. The connection between these devices is critical for audio signals to flow properly. A compromised connection between the plug and the jack can lead to intermittent signal flow or even total disconnection between the devices. To make sure that your connection is working properly, clean the connector with a lint roller and remove any accumulated dirt or debris.
There are three parts to the 3.5mm headphone connector: the tip, ring, and sleeve. Each of these parts performs a different role in the audio flow. The tip is responsible for left-side audio, while the ring handles right-side audio. The sleeve is used for grounding. If you disconnect one of the wires, the headphones will still function to a certain extent.
Check for a faulty AUX cable
To test whether an aux cable is faulty, you can use a flashlight to examine the jack. It helps if you have a magnifier nearby. If you are not very handy with technology, you can also use your smartphone to take a video of the jack to get a better idea of where the problem is.
A loose wire or spring might be causing the issue. Another cause of faulty AUX inputs is that water gets into the electronic components. If water seeps in, it can destroy the device. If this is the case, make sure you remove the AUX cable from the device and replace it with a new one.
Alternatively, if your AUX port is still working, it is possible that the cable has reached its shelf life. In such a case, replace it. In any case, be sure to check the audio system to make sure that it is in good condition before starting the replacement.
Check for stuttering
If your phone is not loud enough for you to hear the music you are listening to, you may be experiencing audio stuttering. This may be due to conflicting audio formats. To check whether this is the cause, open the properties window by pressing Windows + R. If there are too many input and output audio devices, they can cause conflicts.
You may want to try changing the default audio settings. Some smartphones have a hard time playing music through Bluetooth. You might need to install an application that works with Bluetooth to avoid the problem. You can also try disabling ALSA loopback mixing to fix this issue. However, you should make sure that this does not affect microphone recording or audio playback.
