My wife's Nexus 5 recently started behaving very weirdly.

For notifications, it always think that it's in silent mode (i.e. it vibrates and doesn't play a sound). This happens regardless of the actual volume settings. All other sounds seem to work properly (ringtones, in-call volume, etc.)

Also, when she presses volume up or down, it adjusts the in-call volume instead ringtone volume.

I have tried rebooting, and I even tried deleting the cache (as described here - https://android.stackexchange.com/a/139739/165076) but nothing seems to help.

  • I wonder if this is sort of the inverse of this question over here. Perhaps something in the settings got disabled specifically for notifications - have you checked the sound settings? – dotVezz May 11 '16 at 16:44
  • Notification sound is linked to Ringer volume in stock Android 6.0.1. See if your wife installed an Xposed module. – Firelord May 11 '16 at 18:28
  • @Firelord she doesn't have any Xposed modules installed – Moe May 12 '16 at 13:22
  • @dotVezz - I am pretty sure that I checked all of those settings, I'll double check the next time I have a chance – Moe May 12 '16 at 13:23
