Step 2: On the panel you can see an Audio icon next to the Wi-Fi icon. Tap the Audio icon to enable silent mode or mute the device.

Step 3: After a few seconds, tap the same icon to disable silent mode and set the device to ring mode.

On the other hand, to make sure that the volume is at its maximum level, just press the Volume Up Key for several times until it reaches its maximum level.

However, after you do the procedure and your Galaxy S22 still doesn’t have audio, move to the next solution.
