#StackBounty: #18.04 #sound #pulseaudio Audio input not working; greyed out in pavucontrol [Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS]

Bounty: 50

Audio input used to work fine.

I tried restarting pulseaudio with killall pulseaudio and pulseaudio -k, followed by pulseaudio --start

pavucontrol screenshots:

input greyed out

config looks fine

Also I looked up how to list audio input devices and tried that, in case it’s helpful:

$ aplay --list-devices

That’s my built-in mic right? I don’t know where to go from here.
