Sidekick 3 Sometimes my buttons get mixed up and the roller ball quits working. If I press the upper left button (settings?) I get the music volume and if I press the home button, I get the music que. Why does this happen and how do I switch it back?

No sound on my asus transformer eee pad


I have an Asus Transformer EeePad also. I have a sound control button on the outside edge, upper left. Press the top part of it for up, and the bottom end of the button for down.
Otherwise, go to "settings" "sound" "volumes" . There should be a list of 3 items, "Music,video games etc" "Notifications" "Alarms". Each one has a sliding scale of sound. You can slide the volume of each one individually with your finger, then touch "OK". I hope this is of some use to you.
