This morning my games, keyboards had no sound. After searching for answers, I switched the side switch to "rotation lock" and was unable to un-mute the system sounds and restored the sound to my apps. However, the side switch does not unlock the rotation. When I go to settings- general- side switch to - mute, rotation is unlocked and mute is on, I increased the volume with the side switch and still no difference. I checked the notifications setting and it is on. After switching between mute and rotation lock, I restarted the ipad and still no change. Please help!


iOS 5.1.1

    The function that isn't controlled via the switch on the right-hand side of the iPad above the volume control is set via the taskbar instead : double-click the home button; slide from the left; and it's the icon far left; press home again to exit the taskbar.

    2. setting- general- use side switch to - lock rotation

     

    3. double click home bar and side swipe to the left

     

    4. un-mute and sound is restored.

    6. settings-general - use side switch to - mute

     

    7. rotation is unlocked and no sound.
