volume rocker only controls media volume, no longer works for ringer volume

Hi, recently the volume rocker on my legend started behaving strangely. When I press it, it only shows the Media volume dialog, even though I am not playing back anything and don't have any media player running. This means I cannot control ringer volume/quiet/vibrate settings by using the rocker. Having to set this through Sound and Display settings or the power button is pretty annoying. Any idea how to fix this? Thanks

Perhaps try downloading a Task Killer application, I'd recommend "Advanced Task Killer" from the market, and look to see if you have any music/game/whatever apps which may affect the volume rocker and kill the process. That way you can ensure that it IS actually a weird fault/bug, and not a background app interfering.

Thanks a lot for the tip, I just gave it a try, killing every app I could, but the volume rocker still controls only media volume :-( I also tried rebooting several times, no luck either.

Oh.. ok then, im afraid that I have no idea what it could be, assuming your phone has been rooted, I have no idea about the possible implications and stuff from that, as I haven't had any experience with mine yet, being at a version which cannot be rooted just yet.

Sorry my idea didnt help :I hope you have more luck in the future.

I had the same problem some time ago but somehow I managed to fix it. As far as I remember I started the FM Radio and pulled out the headphones a few times, until the volume rocker suddenly behaved normally again. One of a bit too many software bugs :)
