There's a volume control on the right side of the device. Press and hold the top of it and the notification volume should be adjusted.

Also press and hold the power button until a dialog box oops up. Make sure you're not in silent mode.

the volume on my samsung galaxy ace 2 is on the left side, but it adjust the overall sound volume. All my sounds work except for notifications. The power button only brings up "flight mode, silent mode, etc. Again, it is overall sound. All my sounds work except for notifications. The main screen has an icon in the upper left corner that indicates mute I believe, but everyting works fine except for notifications. thx

Tap on the notification bar at the top of the screen and drag down.
drag the row of green icons to the left
you will see an icon for notifications
tap it so it turns green.
your notifications should be back on now.
