Volume down button not working at all
Since the 9700 forum SUCKS, and NO ONE answers any freaking questions, I'm sticking to the 8520 forums.
Bought the 9700 off a friend, he's leaving for the marines and won't need his phone anymore.
Excellent condition, not a scratch. Awesome.. accept the volume down button doesn't work at all. I use my phone for an mp3 player constantly so this a a rather HUGE annoyance for me.
Looks like I need some good ole' diegonei advice.

So, it doesn't work on any app? Or just when you're playing mp3?
I don't know if a battery pull will hep, but give it a try.
If it doesn't work on any app, battery pull won't help, it's probably a hardware issue.

Have 8520, volume was stuck at 100% none the less. Did the take battery out and all that stuff. Nothing. Found this- Go to Menu-settings-options-screen/keyboard- scroll down to 'key tone' and turn it to 'on'. Now when you hit any key you will hear a tone. I turned music on so I could see the volume and sure enough I was able to lower the volume with the buttons. I went back to settings and turned key tone off and my volume buttons still work.

Worked for me too!
Likewise - thanks, Tpmasters!
The keytone on-off trick worked perfectly on my 8520 whose volume+ button just stopped working without apparent reason.
And there was I thinking it was a hardware fault....

Thanks TBMasters! This worked for my Bold 9700. When reading this thread, I had zero confidence that this would work for me. I thought for sure my problem was hardware-related. My Decrease Volume button would work flawlessly, but my Increase button had suddenly all but stopped working completely. I figured I had nothing to lose by trying the procedure you mentioned, and it worked like a dream.

Scratch that, this only worked for me for about twelve hours. The problem is back. Unfortunately, reattempting this procedure no longer works for me. I am considering disassembling my phone to see if I can fix the button - it's got to be a hardware issue.

Sup Guys. (Solution)
Have you tried changing your middle house? its normally the "button" inside that doesnt connect with the board. it does have 3 legs that need to touch the motherboard in order to work, or if you can open your phone, try bending the legs to the right position like the rest of the buttons.
