here it has happened that pulseaudio changed its output from analog out
to hdmi without myself doing anything about it. For me it worked in such
cases to start pasystray, click on the tray icon to open the menu and go
to "Default sink" and change it back to the analog output.

Of course, this is just a shot into the dark, your problem might be
something entirely different.
