This is what happened to me: for several days I couldn't here the sound of music from the Deezer Android app. I could not understand at all why this was happening. Then I realized that the sound in another Android app (cable TV app) was muted. Turned on the sound in this app and tried Deezer: I could here music again.

Tried it again several times and I can definitely confirm this behaviour: muting the sound (music, video) in one Android app results in muted sound in other Android apps. IMO this is a bug that needs to be fixed.

My question might be related or a duplicate of this one, but since that one is closed as "released in a software update", I thought it would be better to post this as a new question.

Had experienced the same now. Not amusing: I have only a few android apps here, but tried out some more hoping they would play a stream. Was unsuccessful so far, and removed these right after. May be one of them muted the media-output of the android subsystem, and I didn't notice. Later I tried to hear some music from MTV Napster and found only silence. Solution was an app named "VolumeControl" from the Yandex-Store. This showed me a slider in zero position. Shifting it right gave back the sound...

Feels like I have the same issue and haven't figured out how to restore my sound in Android either. Can't find the cause :-(
