Sound not working
#1
The audio on my freeplay zero all the sudden stopped working. It doesn't work with headphones and the speaker just makes this buzzing noise when turned up all the way.

The first thing to try is to unscrew the screws around the volume wheel. See if that helps at all. Sometimes, when there's extra pressure on the volume wheel, it can cause this sort of problem. Since not all shells are created equal, you may need to shave off a bit of plastic around the volume wheel if you can determine that it's causing the problem.

Also, we recently had a builder find that there was something inside of his headphone jack (like a tiny piece of plastic). It was wedged in a way where it caused problems both with speaker and headphone output.

If neither of those things help, then maybe it could be the solder points on the back of the Pi. Let me know.

No I wasn’t, I tried loosing the screws and even taking the whole thing apart, but I’m still getting only static.

Does your headphone plug fully mate into the audio jack so it is fully flush with jack? Can you upload some photos of the back of the pi and the area of the audio jack?

When you say "all of a sudden" what do you mean? Was it in the middle of playing a game?

Did you change any settings (like audio settings in particular)? Did you switch to HDMI audio, by any chance?

Sorry for the late reply, i’ve been really busy lately

The headphones do plug in all the way. I can see all the way through the headphone jack do there’s nothing in it.

It was working fine earlier that day, I turned it off after playing with it for a little bit. And then when I turned it back on later the sound wasn’t working. Now that I think about it I did let my little cousin play with it too that day, so he may have messed something up in the settings. 

And now that you mention that, I think that may have been the problem. I went and switched it to auto and now it’s working again. I don’t know why I didn’t think of that earlier.

So thanks a lot for the help, and sorry for the slow reply

Oh, that's good news (in a funny way). I'm glad to hear that it's working fine again!
