Volume is controlled at the Computer if the MJ is attached to the USB port. This means the Speaker Volume control (see lower right on your screen for the speaker icon) needs adjusting or the speakers volume control on the attach sound system needs adjustment. If it is a MJ+ that plugs into the Modem (or router) USB port or Cat6 line port; you can only adjust volume on your attached telephone.

Acer laptops are typically sold with
pre-installed Windows operating systems that offer sound-adjustment features
for increasing the volume on the laptop's built-in stereo speakers.
These same functions can also be used in tandem
with external speakers or headphones to increase the volume, as well as mute
all sound on the laptop.
If the computer should output an unusually low volume,
fixing the problem may be no more involved than sliding a control switch with
the computer mouse. Click once on the speaker icon in the taskbar on the lower-right corner

drag it upward, increasing the volume to the laptop's maximum setting.

In an increasingly hands-free world, the external speaker feature of cell phones has increased the usability of cell phones in the car, public transportation and at work. The volume controls on the external speaker controls can be somewhat difficult to find and manipulate.
sure the speaker setting is actually on. If the speaker is turned to
off, the volume you hear will be coming from the earpiece and will be
very low indeed. Sometimes there is a button on a cellphone which you
can simply press and hold to activate the speaker function. You will
notice a difference immediately.
to see if you have external volume controls. On some models, there is a
button or two buttons that adjust the volume of both the handset and
the speaker volume. If you have these buttons, use them to adjust these
controls while on calls. Remember that adjusting the speaker volume
will subsequently adjust the handset volume once you've turned off the
the sound controls in your phone. If your phone does not have external
speaker control, it can be accessed by adjusting the controls saved on
your phone. Also, the main settings can be controlled even if you do
have external controls. Phones are different, but in your menu of
options, choose sound and sound controls. This should give you options
for ring volume, alarm volume and handset volume.
volume controls for all settings. If you wish yo have multiple settings
for each function---alarm, calls and speaker---you should be able to
adjust these accordingly. Search through the control options until
you've found speaker controls. Choose the setting you desire and save
Using the main volume as a foundation, use the external controls (if applicable) to adjust the levels.
You can CLEAN / LUBRICATEthe volume control know with a CONTACT/CONTROL cleaner, I use a product from Radio Shack, this works wonders on drum type electo mechanical devices which are basically volume control knobs, easy to do, just remove the round knob and spray into the openings with the small tube attached, and rotate in both directions, be sure to unplug the unit first, on a few occasions it is best to remove the front panel to acheive better coverage to the rheostat type volume body, anyway it always cures the crackling and distorting sound, I would give this a try before replacing the part.
If the volume is controlled with a mechanical volume control, usually a knob you turn or a slider you move, the problem is the volume control device (potentiameter) needs to be cleaned. That requires special cleaning chemicals most people do not have in their home. You would need to take it in to be serviced. This is a very inexpensive repair. Normally only costing about $50 to $75.
If it has electronic controlled volume like a button you press then it will still need to be serviced, but this is an unlikely case with static in volume when using the volume control.
your volume control switch has a problem tha was not related with your soft ware, that was damaged by presing hard your volume botton. you can change the change the switch under your volume botton or replace the whole flex at the back of LCD of your phone. of you are not famillar with relacing a flex, you better ask for assistance from the cellphone technicians near you. good lack
if you know how to repair, then replace the volume control switch. it is a digital type/mechanical type of switch with silicone oil on it to prevent sudden turn of volume. if i were the repairman i can simply clean the contacts of the volume control and pour silicon oil again. but i really dont know in your area if they try to clean those.
