LG V30 volume

attrocks

    Occasionally when I attempt to increase the volume while using headphones, the volume will jump from very low to maximum volume instantly.  With the quad dac and headphones, it can be quiet painful.   Anyone else notice this?   I am on Oreo.

        Hmm, that's kinda odd, but let's figure this out. Does the same thing happen if you adjust the volume from the handset? Also, is it a wireless or wired headset you're using?

          Having to get a replacement phone as the SIM card reader seems to have broken.  Will see if this is an issue on my replacement phone.

              Hello there!  Been a while!  On my third V30 now after multiple issues.  Sim reader died, phone died so now on number 3.  So far LG not giving me a good feeling.  Funny thing is that I am having the volume issue on number 3 as I did on number 1.

               

              As I change the volume with headphone, volume often goes to 75 immediately or can also drop real low.  With the higher powered amplifier on this phone, 75 with my sennheisers can be a little painful. 

               

              I am hesistant to complain because I will just get another refurb which I feel is someone else's problem phone.   I did ask for a new phone last time however I think I just got another refurb. 

               

              I do like the phone when it works but this is getting old.  Hopefully someone can help me sort this out.

               

              Thanks,

               

              PS - Anyone else notice this happening?

                  Yep, I'm having this problem, too, and have for quite some time.

                   

                  Many times when I adjust the volume, it must jumps all the way to 75 and blows out my ears.

                   

                  I keep hoping there will be an update that fixes it, but I updated again this morning and the problem is still with me.

                   

                  Help?

                      Some V30 firmware has a volume limiter but those are mostly EU specific.  You could try the included DAC software to lower the maximum output.  There should be a way to turn on the HiFi DAC in the pull down for the Quick Settings and more options under Settings, Sound.

                          The problem here is actually with the quad DAC volume control.  When you adjust the volume in either direction, using either the hardware buttons or the software slider in the notification shade, the volume immediately jumps to maximum volume and you have to manually lower it. 

                           

                          This is definitely a software bug.
