Many users have reported this issue and we know how frustrating it can be, especially when causes you to miss important calls or alerts. But don’t worry, this guide is here to help you troubleshoot and fix this issue.

Let’s get started!

Note: Solutions in this guide will also work on Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus, S22 Fe, and S22 Ultra.

Why Your Samsung Galaxy S22 Doesn’t Ring?

There could be several reasons why your Samsung Galaxy S22 isn’t ringing. Here’s a list of the most common causes:

  1. Low or Muted Volume
  2. Do Not Disturb Mode
  3. Outdated Software
  4. Faulty Apps
  5. Hardware Issues

Solutions in this guide will address each of these causes, let’s start with checking volume levels.

Fix 01: Check Volume Levels

Before diving into complex solutions, you need to verify if the volume level is set too low or is completely muted. This could happen accidentally, especially if your device is often in your pocket or a bag where buttons can be unintentionally pressed.

Here’s how to check and adjust the ringer volume:

  1. Swipe down from the top of your screen to open the notification panel.
  2. Look for the sound icon. If it’s crossed out, your device is in silent mode. Tap it to turn the sound back on.
  3. To adjust the volume, use the volume buttons on the side of your device. You should see a volume slider appear on your screen.
  4. Make sure to adjust the volume for your ringtone.

Your device also has separate volume controls for media, notifications, and system sounds. Make sure you’re adjusting the correct one. 

Fix 02: Restart Your Device

A restart effectively wipes the current state of the software, including any bugs or glitches, and in many cases, this alone can resolve the issue.

Here’s how to restart your Samsung Galaxy S22:

  1. Press and hold the power key and volume down key together until you get the power menu.
Force restart samsung
  1. Tap on the restart button.
Restart phone
  1. Confirm by tapping on the restarting button again.

Your device will now restart. Once it’s back on, test to see if the ringing issue has been resolved.

Fix 03: Turn Off Do Not Disturb

One of the common reasons why your Samsung Galaxy S22 may not ringing is because the Do Not Disturb (DND) mode is activated. When turned on, it silences all calls, alerts, and notifications on your device.

Therefore, you need to disable this if already enabled. Follow the steps below:

  1. Swipe down the notification bar, and tap on the Do Not Disturb button if it is already turned on.
Turn off do not disturb

If you can’t find the DND icon in the notification panel, you can also turn it off from the settings:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap on Notifications.
  3. Then, select Do Not Disturb.
Do not disturb
  1. If the toggle is on, tap on it to turn it off.

Fix 04: Update Device Software

If the system software of your Galaxy S22 is outdated, it can cause various issues, like the one that you are experiencing. 

Therefore, update your device software. Samsung often release bug fixes as software updates so there is a chance that you can get this problem fixed by installing an update.

Here’s how to update your Samsung Galaxy S22:

  1. Head over to Settings.
  2. Tap on Battery and device care.

  1. Tap on Software update.

  1. Then, tap on Download and install.

Fix 05: Boot into Safe Mode

Third-party apps that you have installed on your Samsung Galaxy S22 can cause interference with the normal operation of your phone, including the ringing function. This is where booting your device into Safe Mode comes in handy.

Safe Mode starts your device with only the original software and apps that came with it. This means that any third-party apps you’ve installed won’t be running in this mode. 

So the idea here is if your phone rings normally while in Safe Mode, a third-party app is causing the problem.

Here’s how to boot your Galaxy S22 into Safe Mode:

  1. Press and hold the power button until it brings up the power menu
  2. Then, tap and hold your finger on the power off button until you see the safe mode button.
Power off button
  1. Then tap on it to restart your device into the safe mode.

Now, test your phone to see if it rings. If it does, a third-party app is likely the culprit. 

You can then start uninstalling apps one by one, starting with the most recently installed ones, until you find the one causing the problem. 

Fix 06: Reset All Settings

It is also possible that the problem of your Samsung Galaxy S22 not ringing could be due to a configuration issue within the device settings. In such cases, resetting all settings to their default state can help resolve the issue.

Before proceeding with this step, please be aware that this action will revert all system settings back to their original state. If you have any custom settings that you think you’ll need to reconfigure after the reset, it’s a good idea to note them down beforehand.

Here’s how you can reset all settings on your Samsung Galaxy S22:

  1. Head over to Settings.
  2. Go to General management.
  3. Tap on Reset.
Reset option samsung
  1. Tap on Reset all settings.
Reset all settings
  1. Confirm.
