The sound alert when starting to charge has disappeared. This is no doubt due to a change in settings. How do I restore this sound?

    You cannot charge the sound, but it could be and probably has been muted with system sounds.

     

    If you lost sounds for keyboard clicks, games or other apps, email notifications and other notifications, system sounds may have been muted.

     

    System sounds can be muted and controlled two different ways. The screen lock rotation can be controlled in the same manner as well.

     

    Settings>General>Use Side Switch to: Mute System sounds. If this option is selected, the switch on the side of the iPad above the volume rocker will mute system sounds.

    If you choose Lock Screen Rotation, then the switch locks the screen. If the screen is locked, you will see a lock icon in the upper right corner next to the battery indicator gauge.

     

    If you have the side switch set to lock screen rotation then the system sound control is in the task bar. Double tap the home button and in the task bar at the bottom, swipe all the way to the right. The speaker icon is all the way to the left. Tap on it and system sounds will return.

     

    If you have the side switch set to mute system sounds, then the screen lock rotation can be accessed via the task bar in the same manner as described above.

     

    This support article from Apple explains how the side switch works.

    Hi This has not restored the alert sound when charging begins. As mentioned the sound alert was there when I first had the Ipad but has now disappeared. I cannot find anywhere in settings where to switch it back on

    And the reason for that is because there is no place in the settings to turn it back on. If you have keyboard clicks and email notification sounds, then system sounds obviously are not muted. If you do not have those sounds, the. System sounds are muted and you might still be missing something.

     

    if you do have those other sounds, try this now.

     

    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.
