    Here is an idea.

    iRecorder is a free audio recording app. You could test the microphone there by recording a simple sentence, if there is no audio output on highest volume settings, than you know the microphone is defective, as there is virtually zero configuration for the microphone, apart from the obvious On/Off.

    Btw. the AppleStore Buchanan street? My paddy is from there and works great
    So they will surely fix yours there

    Hey thanks for that but I'm now pretty sure it's a MF fault.

    Have booked it in for tomorrow so I guess a trip through to Glasgow is on the cards. Yep its the Buchanan street one, never been but heard it's nice.
    Mite even get it a few goodies while um there

    Let us know what they find. By the way, if they want to take away your iPad you might want to consider asking to keep it until they have another in stock. We've had a few members recently who have returned their iPads with a fault, but the store didn't have a replacement and they had to wait several weeks for the replacement to arrive. During that intervening period they were 'iPad-less' even though their 'faulty' iPad had a relatively minor fault and would have been eminently usable in the intervening period.

    Good Luck in Buchanan Street.

    Thanks for the help.
    Before you leave, you should backup your iPad.

    To do so, connect it to iTunes and it should sync&backup automatically. If not select iPad from the left side of iTunes and than click sync.

    The reason being, that your iPad will most likely be exchanged. The guys at the Genius Bar don't do much trouble shooting, if they can't solve it within 10min or so, they just give you a replacement device.

    @Tim, how did you squeeze your post in front again?

    I also exchanged my iPad 2 at Buchanan Street, but that must have been 3 weeks ago and they did have a replacement iPad in store. Of course the situation might have worsened since than.

    Talking Tom Microphone problem

    I have exactly the same problem. Each time the microphone goes of and you have to shout to get Talking Tom to hear is because I have been using Talking Tom.

    My sister was so impressed with Talking Tom she went and bought the iPad Installed Talking Tom - you guessed - the mic problem has started!

    Let me explain a few things.
    The genius at the Apple Store in Exeter said it was not a problem with the iPad. It must be caused by apps and contact the App. He also said that because some if the Apps were designed for the iPhone then, by definition, the App expecting expecting to have the mic close to the mouth.

    Have you ever heard such drivel from a Genius?

    When the condition is on, iTalk recorder, will record perfectly well. So not a good check.
    Skype will not function unless you shout.
    Video, sound will not function unless you shout.

    My considered opinion is that the problem is caused by Talking Tom.

    Have been speaking with the Talking Tom company and they can find no problem.

    I have found that some app work with the Ringer/speaker on or off. And playing with Air Hockey I have found strange things with turning the Speaker / Ringer switch / Rotation lock. I did find on on occasion with Air Hockey the sound disappeared completely regardless of the speaker switch setting. And to my surprise after a restart the microphone was back to normal.

    But finally, yesterday when the condition was no microphone I happened to try an App called FriendCaller and after doing that my mic came back with Talking Tom, Video, Skype.

    Hello, I have the same problem and have tried the reset and checked all settings. Mute was not on. I did try calling my phone and everything worked fine but my phone was within 3 feet of the iPad. So I don't think it's the microphone! Hope to find a solution
    Soon.

    I loaded FriendCaller as someone suggested but still can't record a msg even on this app.
    Not sure what to do.
    I did have Talking Tom once but deleted it sometime ago.
    Might try re loading that app, just to see what happens.
    Very frustrating.
