I have no sound when playing games.

iPad, iOS 5.0.1
  • Demo Level 10 (87,945 points)

    If you lose sounds for keyboard clicks, games or other apps, email notifications and other notifications, system sounds 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, me too

    Fluke, went to settings icon, sounds on the left tap, at very top (change with buttons) turn on. (green)

    now all games have there sound back. Wo-hoo.


    If this means anything in general settings - I was in lock rotation ?

    This info is for all who have lost sound to their iPad.  Go to Settings, scroll down to bottom of right hand page to Reset. Reset will restore the iPad to factory default, it will not remove your content.  After the iPad reboots, you will have to re-connect to your wi-fi.  This worked for me, I tried several suggestions given on the web and youtube and nothing worked.  This did.

    Good luck..
