The Nexus 10 tablet from Google was launched 2 years ago with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The good news is that with it being a Nexus device, it was on the receiving end of the latest Android build – Android 5.0 Lollipop. Now if you have yet to update your tablet to the latest version of Android, it seems that you might want to consider holding off on doing so for now.
There seems to be a growing number of complaints on the Google Product Forums that the Nexus 10 tablet has inexplicitly lost its audio after users had updated to Android 5.0. This isn’t just a speaker problem as users who have tried to plug in headphones to the tablet are reporting that no audio is routed to their headphones either.
So far it seems that Google’s support staff has acknowledged the issue and are actively responding on the forums to try and provide solutions to customers, which unfortunately based on the feedback doesn’t appear to be working very well. Now there are some things you can try, such as rebooting the tablet.
Some users have had luck rebooting the tablet 5-6 times and having audio come back on. Other methods involving rebooting the tablet into safe mode to see if there might be a particular app that is causing the problem. Either way hopefully Google will be able to close in on the specific problem and issue an update for it, but in the meantime are any of our readers’ Nexus 10 tablets afflicted by this weird bug?
