Hi there,

Yesterday my iPad was working fine with sound. After charging last night it has started to say that I can only hear sound through headphones. I've switched the mute button on and off, turned it off and on and checked the sound in Settings - the ringer sounds when I alter the volume. Once out of there however, I get nothing.

 

Any ideas?

 

Cheers

    There is a mechanical switch in the headphone socket:

     

    • Inspect it for obstruction/foreign object, blow it out with compressed air, try inserting/removing headphones several times.
    • If that does not work, go to an Apple store for assistance.

    Try restarting the iPad.  Press and hold the sleep/wake button (the one on the top right edge) until a red slider appears at the top of the screen.  Slide it to power off.  After it shuts off, press and hold the same button until the Apple logo appears.

    Actually, I'd reccomend you keep holding the buttons down until it powers off (do not use the red slider).  This will do a HARD reset.

    It's better to keep things like hard resets in reserve for when nothing else, including a normal reboot, works.

    We'll agree to disagree on that one
