Hey there, rpt. I'm very sorry to see there's an issue with your new Cosmos 3. I hope that this matter has been resolved. But, in the event that it hasn't, I recommend checking your volume controls. The easiest way to do that is to toggle the Volume Control key on the left edge of the device. Volume settings can also be found in the device menu by going to Settings & Tools> Master Volume.
