    The volume buttons are not working after the recent update to Oreo, I'm sure alot of you are facing the same problem, please provide me a solution to this, as it is very irritating, I've to reboot my phone now and again to make the volume button to function again.

    exactly, if it says that they work then try to clear the cache from recovery, or do a factory reset, if the test does not pass, try a factory reset, if they don't work after that, you need to send it for repair

    go to settings, about and press many times on build, once you are a developer go to settings, developer options and press advanced reboot

    keep pressing the power button to open the menu
    select reboot, recovery

    I did that ! It was a success. But still the same old problem, as I open Instagram, the soft keys and volume buttons stop working, it does not happen with any other app. And some times it happens, when it's on charge.

    I also faced same issue . Only solution i found is to clear cache restart phone and never open Instagram in your phone :) . As soon as you open instagram same issue will be back

    Boot the phone in safe mode. If the volume keys work here, it's an app causing the issue and you need to find out which one.If they still don't work you need to send the phone away for a diagnostic check up. I had this same issue and resolved it through these steps . Thankfully it was an app causing the issue, so I deleted a bunch of them and rebooted the handset .volumes working fine since . (For volume issue)

    Instagram issue - settings/advanced/accessibility/talkback-off! (I turned switch off too although can't recall why) Instagram has been fine since I done this. Been 2 days and no error message upon opening.

    Quick question. Do you lose photos etc when doing system restore?
    Tried the keypad test and the volume buttons aren't working....:(

    Go to settings/Advanced/Accessibility/Switch Access and then turn it On.
    It worked for me and now I have no problem.

    After Oreo update I am facing the above issue Volume going up without clicking the up button and lock button is not working that time. After some times it will work when u click volume down button for sometime. I tried with all approaches mentioned above and even roll backed to old version. Still issue is there
