How to Fix S22 Keeps Turning Down the Volume

Before going further, I would like to recommend that you try these fixes one by one from first to last. In that way, at the end of this guide, you will be able to successfully fix your S22 smartphone’s volume problem.

Fix 01 – Restart Your Device

Restart galaxy S22

Trust me, a lot of problems that occur when using android devices can be easily fixed just by restarting the device. The same goes for your S22 smartphone.

Other Galaxy S22 users already posted/commented in forums that restarting their device fixed the issue and now the volume doesn’t go down on itself as it was before.

What are you waiting for? Try to give your device a restart and see if the problem can be fixed. But if your S22 keeps lowering the volume on itself still after a restart, then you can follow the below fixes.

Fix 02 – Remove the Back Cover and Check the Volume Button

It is no surprise that if the volume button is jammed or stuck, no matter what you do, your smartphone will still keep lowering its volume. So if this happens when you press the volume up button or near the area of the volume button, the chances are high that the issue is the volume button itself.

  1. Remove if you are using a back cover/pouch for your Galaxy S22 device.
  2. Check the volume button and look closely whether it got stuck inside or jammed.
  3. If you see anything suspicious, take your phone to the nearest service center.

They will fix the jammed volume button or replace it with a new one.

In case you are not aware of it, “media volume limit” is a feature that comes with your Samsung Galaxy S22 to protect your hearing from high volume levels especially when you are listening to music or watching a movie using headphones/earphones.

But if you are using a headphone that does not provide enough volume even if you try to increase the volume, this feature will lower the volume automatically. If this is the case, you can turn off this feature and see if the problem is solved. Let’s see how you can do that.

  1. Go to Settings, then Sound & Vibration.
  2. Tap on Volume.
  3. Tap on the three dots on the top right corner, then tap on Media volume limit.
  4. Turn it off.

Fix 04 – Check for System Updates

System glitches are not new on android devices. Even though you are using one of the best smartphones in the world right now, there is no exception.

But, don’t worry because Samsung has already released a few system updates/upgrades to your S22 device to fix such issues. Maybe you just haven’t installed them yet.

Tip: See our Samsung Galaxy S22 software update tracker

Now is the best time to update your Galaxy S22’s system software and here is how you can do that:

Note: Before updating your S22, make sure it has at least 70% battery life remaining.

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap on Software update.
  3. Then tap on check for updates.
  4. If there are any, download and install them.

Fix 05 – Remove Any Third Party Apps That Turn Down the Volume

When we install a third-party app from the play store such as a music app or any sound measuring app, we usually give all the permission it asks especially the volume controlling one.

If there is a bug in the app, with that volume controlling privilege, the app will keep lowering the volume on your Galaxy S22 when the app is active so the best thing to do is to search for such an app and remove it from your device.

I will tell you how you can find that app on your device for you to be able to remove it.

  1. Scroll down the notification panel.
  2. Tap on the Power icon.
  3. From the power options, tap and hold the power off button.
  4. Now, the Safe mode button will appear, tap on it.

Now, your device will boot in safe mode. Any third-party app won’t run while in this mode so you can check whether the volume is still acting weird like before, if it does not, then the problem is caused by an app/s.

This time, you can go to Apps and then remove all apps that you have a suspicion of. It will be most probably a music app or sound measure app like what J mentioned earlier.

After uninstalling the apps, restart your device.

Fix 06 – Factory Reset Your Galaxy S22

The last thing you are left with is to factory reset your S22 device this is because some system changes that happened during the usage of your phone might have changed the system settings/files or have glitched it.

To recover from that, you have to perform a factory reset. It will remove all personal data, erase all system changes, and probably fix the volume lowering issue.

Note: Make sure to back up your data before performing a factory reset.

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Tap on General management
  3. Tap on Reset
  4. Under reset options, tap on Factory data reset
  5. Enter the lock screen password, or pattern if you have set up one before
  6. Confirm
