The sound/volume on my iPad turns off &on unexpectedly...mostly off. Please help. Also, I can't turn iPad off! I just noticed this today. I turn it off & it automatically turns back on!

iPad 2, iOS 6

    Start with this and see if it clears up either - or both problems.

     

    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 - let go of the buttons.

    Actually the iPad should turn back on again when you reboot the iPad. I am curious to know if it prevents the iPad from shutting off unexpectedly now.

    Hey Sharrice!

     

    I actually experienced the same problem with my iPhone 3GS even though I set it to silent it automatically set it off of silent,

     

    This is what I did to combat that problem,

     

    Go into:

     

    Settings > Accessibility > Assistive Touch > On

     

    And click on that little box and go to:

     

    Device > Mute

     

    To unmute or more cohesiveness just go to:

     

    Settings > Accessibility > Triple Click Home

     

    And select Assistive Touch, this will enable that little box every single time you click the home button 3 times and will also turn it off when you click it 3 times!

     

    Hope it helped!

    Hey Guys..Well guess i have similar problem as well but mines the other way around. I have an ipad2 and recently i notice that everytime i try to restart my device. The speaker icon appears (that icon that shows up when you press the side volume button) and the bar automatically goes to the max. I removed my case already but still it does the same thing. I can only lower the volume but each time i press the UP button. Its doesnt respond. Is this maybe a bug in IOS6?

    See if this helps for the no sound issue.

     

    Settings>General>Reset>Reset All Settings. You will have to enter all of your app preferences and device settings again if you try this.

    What this does is reset all of the settings that are in the settings app - back to factory defaults. You will not lose any content or data - but you will have to enter all of those settings again.

     

    Brightness, wallpaper, the home screen layout, the keyboard dictionary ... those types of settings all return to "out of the box" conditions.

     

    I suggested this because you said that you no longer see the round button on the slider bar in the music app. If you double tap the home button to get to the recents tray at the bottom of the iPad - do you see a speaker icon on the left side? Do you see a complete volume slider bar on the right side?
