Phone doesn't ring



  • Once in a while the phone does not ring, it does vibrate. Also, the screen lights up, showing who is calling etc. So everything is working like it should, but no sound. Then the next caller the sound is back to normal. The problem appears three times in a week or so.

    I haven't been able to reproduce this bug. It just appears and goes.
    On a night shift I realy need the sound!

    There my questions:

    • do you recognize this problem?
    • any idea how to fight this problem, where to go next? For example, what logs should I check?

    I don’t know when this problem appeared, I mean, what OTA.

    Now using OTA 7 rc, BQ Aquaris E4.5



  • Hi,
    I've the same bug on my E4.5. But in my opinion the bug was there from beginning on. It's like you described, you can't reproduce it. It can be that three calls will ring, the fourth not, and the fifth will ring again. I haven't found a solution and I have no idea why this is happening. But I think it is not a regression between 15.04 and 16.04, the bug was already in earlier releases.

    I agree, first I wasn’t sure about it. So it’s since the phone was released, since Ubuntu Touch Canonical Ltd.



  • @thebird did that issue happen running OTA-7 on your device too?

    Yes, it does



  • @thebird can you try the dev channel for a bit see if that helps

    Calling my phone 1/30 gives a no sound problem. So I'll try the dev channel now ...

    Thanks for your help, but that didn't do the trick. After 36 times calling the UT phone the problem appeared again.



  • @thebird Ok thanks for trying. Lets see what comes up from others.



  • I know what you are talking about, because on my E5 I do/did have this very rarely. It used to be more. Since OTA 6 it is gone together with another nasty bug (screen not unlocking on incoming calls and so on).
    Did you/do you change your volume? In the German telegram group someone was describing the same problem (see: https://t.me/UBports_Deutsch/25623). There was the idea that it might be connected to the sound volume. With a volume of approx. 45%-55% it is more likely to have this bug.



  • Hello,
    I have the same problem with my BQ E5 which is still under Ubuntu Touch for the moment. It seemed to me that restarting the phone from time to time avoids the problem but this is without guarantee.

    Have a nice day

  • @pulsar33 I don't think that restarting helps to solve the problem. My phone is off during every night and gets started on the next day. So there's a reboot every day.

    @danfro The description mentioned in the telegram group is exactly the behavior I have with my phone. And yes, the Volume is in my case normally around 40-50%.



  • @kristatos : OK, I was not sure ... Now I am 🙂
    Anyway, it's an old bug
    Best regards

  • Looking in the ~/.cache/upstart/dbus.log I found sound goes to pause when I don't hear the sound ringing.

    ...

    When the sound is normal I see in the logfile it is playing:
