Pavucontrol: Shows headphones plugged in even when it is not and there is no sound whether I plug in headphones or not. No sound from laptop speaker.

This happens only after awaking from sleep. After reboot this is solved (laptop speaker work and behavior is normal) but happens again after sleep.

I am on 5.19.5 and my headphones work. I use 22.04 LTS also. While the problem could be with Pavucontrol, my guess is that it is more the bundled drivers in the kernel version you are using that is the issue. Just a hunch though.

I can’t speak for the specific problem you are facing, but it looks like you are using PulseAudio. Have you considered switching to PipeWire instead? Ever since I switched, even Bluetooth works flawlessly.
