This morning, my iPad 2 inexplicably lost sound from it's built-in speakers. I'd been using it without problems for months, until now.
I checked the mute button. Muted it, and then unmuted it. still no sound.
I plugged in headphones. Yes, I can get sound through headphones, but no sound when I pull head phones out.
I went to sound settings, and can get sound out of the speakers when previewing the alert sound preview. Once I leave setting, sound goes away again.
I tried Skype, still no sound. However, Skype has a headphone switch that toggles between speakers and headphones. This switch does turn the speakers on. Unfortunately, the speakers don't work once I leave Skype.
I tried the reset everything option on my iPad. Still not fixed.
My last desperate option is to turn to this forum. Hope someone has an answer short of going back to the shop to get this iPad replaced.
