    Adding another thing to try.

    I have an iPad that had sound for iTunes and movie playback only, and all other apps, including games, had zero sounds after the update. I did have lock sounds, but no keyboard sounds even though those were both set on.

    I rebooted several times, did the toggle on the mute switch as suggested and nothing.

    I went into the "sounds" area on settings. Toggled both the lock sounds and keyboard sounds OFF, did a reboot, then went back in and toggled both lock sounds and keyboard sounds ON. This brought back not only my keyboard sounds, but also the sounds on all my games and apps. It's worth a try if the other things don't help.

    Background apps are hiding for good reason. Seek them out, close them. The world will be a better place.

    Check MUSIC/VOLUME LIMIT.

    Set to NO if set to YES

    Check For the volume slider again by double tapping home button and swiping right.

    Been reading every post I can find on this subject.

    I do not mean to be insulting so please bear with me.

    When you checked the general setting what was the use side switch set to (lock rotation or mute) and what is it set to now?

    Set property to mute....then flip side switch to mute position ( you will see a red dot appear on the switch when you do).

    Now unmute

    Now test.


    The switch should be set to no mute (with no red dot visible) before changing the general setting.

    If this fix doesn't work the only other causes I've located is a dirty pin number 21 on the ipad port (google clean pin 21) or hardware failure on the heaphone jack...both highly unusual.

    Hi,

    I have the same issue. My ipad is only playing sounds when connected to the headphones and have tried all of the above with no success. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks

    further to this, I definitely think it has got "stuck" on the lock mute/thing as sometimes I will change the settings, reboot, and then go back and the changes have not stuck

    Thanks Fid. your solutions for my sudden loss in volume involving running apps in the background combined with shut off/on did the trick for me. I was shocked to see that EVERY app I had was running in the background. Thought that was really strange and will want to investigate further.

    Hi folks,

    I also am having this problem.

    Sounds work on my speakers (i.e., alerts), but iTunes, videos, etc., do not work.

    I have my mute unlocked. There flat out isn't a sound bar to adjust - it just appears as an empty bar with no ball to slide up or down.

    When I put my headphones in and pull them out, my sound bar will return and it will work, but if I try to adjust it, it will disappear again and the sound will become totally muted.

    If I double tap the home button and slide the bar over, I can restore the audio if I mute and unmute using the mute button on the right side.

    And, yes, I have closed all apps and rebooted the iPad.

    Should I be taking this to a Genius Bar?

    please help - i have IPAD 3 about a week ago the sound on speakers started crackling, now the sound is off completely.

    Is this an Apple issue with the Ipad 3?

    I have powered off IPAD now not sure what to do next. I am also not in the country where i bought the Ipad

    thanks Debbie
