Samsung Tab Sound Fix

The Problem...
Recently I bought a brand new galaxy tab 4. Yeah, Yeah you heard it right Samsung Galaxy. "Why not Nexus?" you may ask.Reason...this one had a better battery life which counts when you are using a tab for reading ebooks.
So back to the problem...
When I was watching a Movie suddenly, the volume on my headset went way low. Only on the headset. It worked fine on the speakers. I tried restarting, cleaning the buds and even blowing into the audio jack (praying I won't destroy the jack with my spittle).
At last, I took it to the service centre. The guy said it was a software problem and formatted the whole thing. I became happy. And I lived ever after.
Or I thought so.....but.....
Again after a few days...the same thing happened...I was like what the hell...with the stupid 2G connection in my country downloading apps and updating my mobile again is a sh***y option. So I tried a new solution...pretty simple one...
(sorry for making you all read my rant...)
The Solution...
I went into recovery mode and wiped my cache. That's it. Just wipe the cache, and you are ready to go. All sound is recovered and you don't loose any of your data.
To go to recovery switch off your tab. Switch it on by pressing the power button+volume up+home key together. Until the recovery mode is shown.
In recovery mode use volume buttons to navigate and power button to confirm the action.
WARNING: DONT DO A COMPLETE WIPE OF DATA. ONLY WIPE CACHE.
