Galaxy S10 smartphones sport some excellent features, including AMOLED displays, in-display fingerprint sensors, except for Samsung Galaxy S10E which has a side-mounted one, and high-end audio system. And today, we’ll talk about that audio part of the Samsung Galaxy S10 devices. In case you’re not able to hear any sound/audio on Galaxy S10, S10E, or S10 Plus, you’ll need to keep reading this article. Below, I will show you some quick methods on how to fix no sound issue on Galaxy S10 smartphones.
Before plunging on the solution for the no sound issue on Galaxy S10, S10E, and S10 Plus, you should do some checkups. First, note what you’ve been doing differently since the last time sound/audio on your device worked. It might be a recently installed app or some settings that you’ve changed. Try reversing them to see if that solves the glitch.
Also, you should make sure that the volume button is working. Sometimes, the volume key gets stuck and if you’re used to keeping your smartphones on silent, then that might be the issue – you just can’t turn the volume up.
Besides, ensure that no Bluetooth headset is connected to your Galaxy S10 device. In many cases, users forget disconnecting Bluetooth earpieces, so when they try to listen to music or watch something on YouTube using the device’s speakers, they are not able to hear any sound/audio on Galaxy S10, S10E, or S10 Plus.
If the no sound issue on Galaxy S10 persists, move to the solutions presented below.
How to fix no sound issue if you’re not able to hear any sound/audio on Galaxy S10, S10E, or S10 Plus

On some devices, the Maintenance Boot Menu might pop up right after the Android logo appears. In that case, choose Normal Boot from that menu and allow the smartphone to reboot.
