Having problems with an iPhone 5c volume button not working can get a lot of people down. The problem with this kind of issue is that it can be a result of either software or hardware problems, and most people would want to get a software issue fixed before hardware becomes an issue . Luckily, we have listed a below a test you can use to make sure that your volume button isn't broken in a hardware sense, but is rather just the victim of a software glitch. Once you've tested your phone and have figured out whether or not you have a hardware problem, you can take more direct action.

If you open your Settings tab and go past General into Accessibility, then toggle on Assistive touch and set “volume down” as an option. Occasionally, this will make your physical volume down button work. This kind of specific software glitch is hard to understand, but essentially it means that something in the software was preventing your phone from recognizing the taps it was receiving from the “volume down” button. If this fixed your phone, good news! You don't have you get your phone repaired! If it didn't, you'll have to read on.
