I noticed from your configuration that pulseaudio and pipewire are running both at the same time.
In my config this looks like this:

  Device-1: Intel 100 Series/C230 Series Family HD Audio vendor: ASUSTeK

  Sound Server-3: PulseAudio v: 14.2 running: no 
  Sound Server-4: PipeWire v: 0.3.32 running: yes 

Just wanted to point this out, but I can’t tell if this is an issue or not. It’s just different to my system.

so, how I can recognize the issue.

You can start off with basic troubleshooting I guess:

Unmute the audio channel:
or an older discussion from the arch forum
or the pripewire trouble shooting section
