Have you tried "gstreamer-properties" from the command line? Some months 
ago I solved a similar problem hacking with this application, but I'm 
note sure it's the right solution for you. At least you could try.

Also, are you sure you have no problem with the external "hardware"? I 
mean, loud speakers, jacks, wires and such? If the s.c. is damaged, I 
guess some odd message would be issued by some sound related 
application, but you say that doesn't happen...

I know, it's not too much, sorry...
