Notification sounds and lock key have stopped working.

The audible notifications and the lock key on my 8900 have quit working.  I have resorted to password lock and vibration notifications.  Does anyone out in the BB universe know what the problem is and/or have a fix, that would be fantastic.

Re: Notification sounds and lock key have stopped working.



The Blackberry is designed to be reset by removing the battery whilst the device is powered-on. Leave the battery out for a minute or 2.

See if that resolves the problem. If not, More information will be needed before making suggestions. Please provide as much as you are able of the the following

Blackberry Model.
Carrier Name.
Do you have a Data Plan?
Operating System Version go to Menu > Options > About - it looks like v5.0.0.681
Memory for Device and SD Card Options > Memory
Any error statement or code.
The Exact nature of problem - the more info the better.
When this started and whether it started just after an update or new App download and which App/s theme/s download.
