    BTW, doing the "Skype echo test" doesn't restore PDK app sounds. Only a reboot or stop/start of pulseaudio.

    For those who continue to lose sound -- I have found that I lose sound if I use a system sound or ringtone for notifications. I do not lose sound if I use a vibrate for notification. HP is aware of the issue.

    How do you get to the command line for the start stop of pulse audio?

    this is a problem where pulseaudio is locked up.

    I've had mine on mute since day one and regularly lose sound.

    I'll try vibrate as you suggest.

    I've been using vibrate for email since I found this thread a couple days ago and haven't lost sound since

    okay, this happened to my a lot. Then I removed the increase sensitivity patch and it hasn't happened since. Been two days. Idk if it is the same reason for everyone else or not.

    First, install Xecutah from preware. Then launch Xecutah. Then open Xserver. Then open Xterm. Type the commands in the Xterm card and you're done. This is the only way to access the command line.

    thanks for reply. I can't find Xecutah in preware. I looked through each category and the list of everything. I'm not new to preware, but I am new to the touchpad version. Is it available in there?

    Do you have the testing feeds enabled?

    Initially I noticed that the volume rocker was changing the "media" volume (the music notes appeared when I changed the volume). Some other changes got this to correctly show the "bell" volume icon, but still no sound through the speakers.

    May try the full restore since I don't have much else installed/configured yet.
    Well, I think I may have a hardware problem because when I got home and put the TP in my charging doc I noticed it made a beep, so I though the sound had come back. But I quickly realized that the sound was only coming out of the right speaker (when speakers are at the bottom). Used the WebOS Doctor to restore the OFW but still no sound out of the left speaker.

    Used the text chat support option to arrange a replacement, but it's been 36 hours and I still haven't received the promised email with the return instructions (they initially said it would take a couple hours and the next guy I chatted with said up to 24 hours). Guess I'll have to call next time and push a bit harder for some action.

    Got it guys. Thanks. Its the multiple feeds that got me. Couldn't figure out which one.

    I'll need to do some testing to confirm that this log message and the loss of sound are indeed related, but perhaps I could work out something that simply watches the log for such a message and restarts pulseaudio if necessary.

    I'll see if I can look into this; Of course I'd appreciate any help from anyone with more pulse knowledge than I have (my knowledge here is pretty sparse.)

    Hi guys, my problem is slightly different. The sound is working but when I use for instance Kalemsoftvideo Player to watch a video, the sound is on mute and I need to adjust the volume (up or down) with the button to activate the sound

    And this happens every time I watched a different video, even back to back.

    There are a different set of volume controls for media vs system sounds.

    This worked! I'm pretty sure these two commands can be made into an executable on the TouchPad and we can just click on it to enable sound again.

    Or another option is:

    stop pulseaudio & start pulseaudio
    This will do both in sequence with just one command

    NOTE::: must do them separately.... pulseaudio will not start up correctly and remained muted for me. Stick to separate commands.. Sorry

    This is driving me nuts. Leaving the touchpad unattended for 30 minutes, then I come back to no sound. B*llsh*t patch job for pulseaudio.

    Add me to the list on peeps that are losing audio. Only fix for me was a reboot.
