In my case, the explanation was simple and silly. Without realizing what I was doing when moving iPad on the desk, I pressed the Volume button hidden behind the rime at the corner of the device. This does not manifest itself on the screen - or if it does, please tell me where to look for the MUTE sign. I pressed the button, saw the grey speaker icon midscreen, the bar on it was killed, I increased the sound to maximum. Activated Skype - all is well now. These unnoticed fingerings of tiny buttons is really irritating
Most of the cases for the iPad (that cover the back) result in the buttons being slightly recessed, which does a lot to reduce the number of accidental presses.
If it reduces the amount of time or medication you need to un-stress it might be worth the investment. ;)
Hi,my problem to my iPad is it has no speaker.I can hear music and video music.My problem is I can't record the voice on video and
I used FaceTime my friend can't hear me but I can hear them..please help me what is wrong...
I admit to being stumped on that one. I've never found any controls for the microphone. It works, or it doesn't.
You have three types of microphone input. The external one is at the top edge of the iPad, centered between the power button and earphone jack. The earphone jack can support an external microphone with a standard four conductor jack. If you have a set of Apple headphones with the mic built in, or another compatible set give them a try and see if they work when the external mic does not. It is also possible to connect a microphone through the dock port, and a few manufactures do make compatible mics.
Other than that all I can recommend is a restart and or reset, if you haven't already tried them. And if that does not work contact Apple. If you have an iPad 2 it pretty much still has to be under hardware warrantee, and if the microphone does not work (and there is no sign of accidental damage), they should replace it for free.
Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.
and then a reset if that does not work.
Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.
Had no probs until ios5. Found even with the lock slide on rotation it would still mute the ring. Turned off the slide button near the volume button, ya! Have ring and keyboard clicks in Skype
