A relatively new TP is fully up to date and has Touchvol installed.
I was playing music through an external amp/speakers when I used Touchvol to switch from headset to internal speakers. That worked, but then switching back to headset resulted in no sound. Plugging and unplugging the cable to the amp had no effect. And then, switching back to internal speakers, there was no sound, and the player's play button wouldn't even try to start music playing. Rebooting got the music player and speakers working again.
I had a similar problem connecting a set of PC speakers - it's like they weren't recognized. Although, trying again just now, they worked OK.
I guess either of the above could be blamed on dirt in the contacts or such, but I did work the plug a bit to check for that each time.
And then there's this weird raspy / distorted noise that's in time with the audio on the speakers every now and then. Rebooting always takes care of it, but I have no idea what the cause might be. Most recently it was there after starting from a fully shut down condition.
Are all these just things to be put up with, or is this (refurb) device having unusual issues?
