I am having an issue where I will start or restart my PC and suddenly no audio comes from the headphones jack. This only happens occasionally, and I don't know the cause. My PC speakers work fine every time.
pavucontrol shows my headphones as
plugged-in, with the output db's moving and all, but no output (I've tried multiple headphones and audio sources).
I believe that I have all dependencies for alsa and pulseaudio installed..0
I tried running
alsamixer and played with the volume controls, but still no sound. It says my chip is
Realtek ALC3232, which has a number of settings that work when I toggle mute and adjust the volume settings for the speakers, although adjusting the headphones section does not have any effect on the headphones output. This is consistent with the
pavucontrol interface. I also have an
Intel Haswell HDMI card, which does not have any adjustable settings, just
S/PDIF 1 and
S/PDIF 2, none of which I can toggle.
Here is some of my system info:

Any suggestions or insight?
