    no without going into log and you would need to have debugging on beforehand
    but your issue is resolved with reboot so no need to investigate anymore

    They cannot tell you, that, which they do not know.

    Your restart worked for you, this time.

    What about the next time sound malfunctions?

    Hope restart works again, for your sake.

    If not, don't expect help from rikardo 1979.

    "your issue is resolved with reboot
    so no need to investigate anymore"

    You are not alone.

    Here's some reading for you:

    I got the same problem more than 3 times randomly, for no reason. & bcoz of that, I missed important calls ! >.
    Even they it resolves after a reboot. What if it happens again & I miss the phone calls ?
    Its very bad

    I had once the same problem.. I'm having issues with microphone while on call.. Other person can't hear me properly. :(
    All started with latest update. Until then I had no issues. The worst is when there's some problem with basic functionality of a phone.
    Waiting for lollipop, hope the issue gets resolved

    try to disable OK Google function, this seems to fix the issue when your voice is distorted for caller on other side

    What do you mean by no need to investigate more? I'm having the same problem frequently and restarting all the time is not the solution. This has happened overnight which led to missed alarms. This is definitely a bug in the software that needs to be fixed

    I guess it worked out. :)..
    Speaker output coming out from earpiece. I faced this issue again when I used whatsapp call feature.. I had put on speaker during the call. Later when I played music, the sound was coming from earpiece. I called one my friends again from whatsapp(not in speaker this time), it was resolved then.

    Hey I also had similar problem , bottom speakers were not working but after the restart they started working. It clearly seem to be a software problem.
    Its such a shame one plus is ignoring such problems. @Carl please resolve these minors chinks in otherwise a great phone.

    I am facing the similar issue since last 5 days. The sound is not coming out of speakers but coming from ear piece. Restarting phone every time is really painful. :(

    Isn't there any solution for this??

    One thing I observed is when this issue starts, on pressing volume up or down buttons it is showing Call Volume instead of speaker volume.


    See even though I increase or decrease volume it is happening for call volume but not speaker volume.


    Please find a solution for this.

    So I was not the only one! I made a thread asking the same thing. I kinda liked it, ya know having "front facing speakers" but it ended up fixing itself. What version of android are you on? I am on COS 13.0 incremental.
