We are starting this post with a real practical example that is posted by a user on Samsung Community.

Here it is –

S22 ultra sound cuts in and out – volume adjusts on its own

This is my 3rd time posting this – please don’t delete, this issue is not resolved by turning on ‘Disable absolute volume, under developer options.

My issue is that my s22 ultra’s sounds for system, media, notifications and interactions cut in and out. An example would be typing keys on the keyboard makes a sound, the behavior on my

phone would be 1 out of 5 or 10 keys typed would make a sound. So far I haven’t noticed

this during calls. Another

behavior is the volume levels will jump up and down on their own. By opening the volume levels

and adjusting one of the levels they all will start adjusting randomly on their own.

I have tried clearing the cache partition, rebooting, enabling ‘disable absolute volume’ under developer options and everything else I could find through searching the web.

This behavior started right after the last Android update 13.

Anyone having a similar experience?
