    Thanks ArsenalRwanda

    We have just fixed the problem based on your advice. Your suggestions are a click of a second and problem is fixed. We almost washed the power jack in beer as someone suggested through google search.


    Thanks once more.

    I had the very same problem.  Until something simple ended up being the solution.  Next to your external volume buttons is a mute button. When off it shows red.  Simply slide it to the right.  My sound came right back on! Once again, I had ALL the same problems and this solved it.  Hope this helps.

    I took a toothbrush and cleaned out the charging dock area. The sound worked after doing this. Previously, I could only get sound through my headphones.

    I come across this tread while having the same problem as everyone else. I went into my setting and find my solution.

    Going into>settings>general>use slide switch to> Mute button was tick> click on Lock Rotation.

    That should do the trick.

    I hope this one will help some of you since it fixed the same problem I had with my ipad with sound coming out only from headphones... I unplugged the headphones on my ipad once it was connected through low voltage USB (had Not charging message). That made somehow the ipad stuck in headphone mode, tried everything (reboot, reset etc...) nothing worked...


    I plugged again the ipad with the same usb connection (not charging) with headphone in and removed the jack while leaving the ipad usb connection and played with sound buttons (up and down) and then it showed the speaker sound setting....


    Give it a try and let ne know if this help you ...

    I had this problem because I use bluetooth to stream my iphone to my hearing aids.  Apparently my Ipad connected to the bluetooth stream and cutoff the speaker.  I turned-off the ipad bluetooth and the speaker turned back on.  If you use bluetooth you may want to try this solution.

    This really works.  All I had to do was plug in my power source and the speakers played.  The IPAD does get confused between the headphones and the power source.  Awesome post you rock!

    I have an iPad Air 2 that's only a few weeks old. I noticed last night that I didn't have sound for music, video, games, keyboard clicks, etc. but did when fiddling around with the ringtone options. When I used the external volume control buttons, it was indicated that headphones were plugged in, but they weren't. To test what was happening, I plugged in my headphones, and sure enough, the volume worked through them. I unplugged them, but still no sound through the iPad's internal speakers.


    After reading over the suggested fixes on this forum and in other places on the internet, I figured dirty connectors wasn't my problem as the iPad's only been out of the box a few weeks. First I made sure the volume wasn't muted in any of the many places it can be. Next, I tried resetting several times, but that didn't work. Finally, I linked my iPad to my daughter's Bose Bluetooth speaker. My music played fine through her device, and when, in mid-play, I turned off the Bluetooth option on the iPad, thus interrupting the signal, the audio on my iPad began playing through the iPad's internal speakers again. So, as another poster pointed out, apparently the iPad can get confused when switching between volume outputs. I'm not sure why my iPad snapped out of it, but hopefully this will help someone with the same problem.
