I am new to this forum, but not new with the iPad. I have an iPad 1 that I purchased a year and a half ago. I bought it for grad school, but now it's just mainly used by my kids. Here's my problem with this iPad:
About 40 days after I purchased it, sound would only occur when I had headphones in. Regardless of whether the headphones are in or not, the iPad thinks they are. Therefor nothing can be heard unless the headphones are in. I did all of the troubleshooting at that time. I did not puchase a product plan because I just didn't have the money for it when I bought the Ipad 1. Nothing I did worked. Then after going a month or so with listening to everyting through headphones the iPad started recognizing when the headphones were in and when they weren't and we could hear accordingly. Then about 2 months ago, the ipad went to registering that headphones were in all the time, even though that's not the case. Anyone else have this problem? Can I fix this? Does anyone know how much it's going to cost me to send it in to Apple to get it fixed? Am I stuck with it like it is and just have my kids share headphones when they need to hear the sound?
Thanks for your help!

Hello and welcome to the forum!
I am not sure on the answer to your issue but I am sure someone will pop in that has some suggestions...good luck!
Hi and welcome to the Forum!
When using headphones always turn off what you are listening to first before disengaging the jack, is this what you've been doing? If not this could be the cause of your problem. Sometimes debris can also find its way into the jack port so have a look to see if anything is lodged here, please do not insert anything in here though. Let us know if this has made any difference.
