Hi. I am having similar issues with volume. I have no volume on games but have it on youtube. Can someone help please. I have had the ipad for a couple of months and have had no problems up until recently.
Well I had no sound except through headphones. I went to Settings, General and checked the lock rotation instead of the mute button (which some lovely engineer decided would be my preference during some update). However, I STILL HAD NO SOUND. So, to my astonishment, I went back, checked the mute button in preferences, moved the physical button and got sound. Then I once again checked lock rotation and things are working now the way I WANT them to!
Hope that helps someone else as I expected unchecking the mute button in settings would have fixed the no sound problem
We have been able to resolve the issue of the iPad thinking it is "Docked".
It appears to be most likely caused by corrosion on pin # 21. Long story short. Clean pin # 21 with rubbing alcohol on some sort of small cloth that will fit. We scraped the pin clean with a needle then applied rubbing alcohol with a thin cloth and all is fine now.
This isn't the first time corrosion on the connector pins has caused issues. It takes a minimal amount of condensation to cause corrosion on these pins.
if you are not sure which pin is # 21 google it.
When looking at the connector (white side up) pin one is far left and pin 30 is far right.
Hope that helped someone. Took us 3 hours to figure out ;-)
