    I was skeptical, but this has worked for me 100% of the time since I first tried it. It certainly beats rebooting!

    another option minus the reboot might be running the following on xecutah > xterm

    stop pulseaudio audiod
    start pulseaudio audiod
    Long Live Web0S!

    EDIT: Well, it appears the jack does work and a restart cured the issue. That's really not cool. HP better fix that ASAP.
    It's rather a shame that audio (speakers/headset) and screen brightness (ever notice how sometimes you set at 1% and have to tap the power button to make the screen go off and one to lower it all the way) are STILL issues since 2009? *shrug* I wonder if Pulse Audio Restarter could be modded to include this...happens to me a lot, and no apparent rhyme or reason.

    This worked for me too but with a little help from someone else who posted previously so I have revised the instructions accordingly:

    1. Mute your Touchpad by selecting Mute Sound from the dropdown menu up by the clock (top right corner of your TouchPad interface).
    2. Press the power button for about half a second to put the TouchPad into hibernation, shutting off the screen. Do not press and hold the power button or you will get the shut down menu.
    3. Count to 10. Use real seconds, not fast ones - no cheating!
    4. Turn the screen back on by pressing the power button for a quick half second once more.
    5. Adjust the volume up on the volume rocker and you will hear that the distortion has gone away.
    6. Do an optional dance!

    It's working for me too.. And it's faster than a device restart !

    while audio is playing, short press power button. Sound will continue to play distorted then it SHOULD suddenly go back to normal. Short press power button to turn on again.

    this has always worked for me

    Well I know this is a really old thread, but I have to ask a couple of questions. I too have this problem, and I also had it on my View Sonic G-Tablet. Coincidentally enough I had versions of ICS installed on both tablets (the G-Tab was not a dual boot though). Does everyone having this audio issue also have Android installed on their TP? I didn't read thru all 19 pages, but I'm wondering if anyone checked to see if an Android installation could be the cause of the distortion issue?

    Not at all, I've had this problem even with no Android installed. It doesn't make any difference.

    Truth is, it happens a lot less on 3.0.5, but it still does

    I got the distortion problem right after the last webOS update (I think that was the case for most), and long before I put ICS on it 2 or 3 weeks ago

    Well, it was just a thought

    I haven't used my touchpad as often lately but I have been recently and got the distorted sound after about an hour of use. I remembered I saw a thread about different ways to fix this but this one is the best. Who thought of this? Genius!

    oh I'm doing the dance which was optional btw.

    I was using the YouTube playing a video, shutting off screen, then turning screen on and fixing distortion method prior to this. Thanks all!
    I am equivalent to a man dammit.

    I generally leave TouchVol (Preware app) open, when I'm using Music Remix Player, as I increase the headset volume anyway, and it has a built-in Pulse Audio Restarter in the top-left menu.
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2 about anything. I may however, give a nickel

    Something interesting I noticed is the sound will usually fix itself after 10 minutes or so. I stopped bothering to restart PulseAudio any more.

    wow i really wish i'd found this thread before my power went out from hurricane sandy and i was stuck with my TP sans internet access lol. i was so well-prepared with movies loaded up and the sound was just so awful that i didnt use it.

    When I get the distorted sound I just make a quick Skype call to Echo123. That always fixes it right away. But maybe that wouldn't work with no internet service.
