Can't hear line in samples

Hey all, long time no talk. Not sure what issue I’m having. Have speaker direct aux in. Have aux to adapter, to phone, red port. Trying to cut a youtube sample, when playing video I cannot hear any sound coming in at all in order for me to ‘standby green start recording’ I increased the red +/- on the ‘To Sample’ still nothing. Have restarted more than one, phone is not accidentally Bluetooth. If I put my ear up to the speaker I can hear it very faint, almost mute. Lines seems okay and not damaged. I have samples plenty of times in this exact way.


Disregard, it was a damaged cord.
