    I'm trying the earphone jack for the first time by plugging in and listening to a song on I-Tunes. The sound comes through the speakers fine, volume control works, but no sound in the earphones. I'm using the 3.5mm set from my I-pOd.
    Is there some setting I need to do.....that plugging into the jack doesn't automatically turn off the speaker, turn on the earphones?

    Yes, i checked it again. I slid it in slowly, then pulled it out slowly. Music was coming from the speaker at a;;l times. I'm using the headphone set frm my I Pod

    That's bizarre.....try rebooting your iPad....if it still happens then there might be something wrong with it. Test another set of headphones just to be sure.

    i read somewhere (i think on this forum) somebody had the same problem
    the solution was (as FrostyFire already told you):
    put the jack as far as you can in the iPad, sometimes you think it's at the end, but then you still can put it a bit further…

    Had the same problem, i have a set of headphones with mic built in, wanted to record something, did not work pulled them out and back again, need to push more than norm, did work. also found out that the pad has a built in mic, duuuuuuuuu do i yes.
    headphones do work seems to be a funny thing of the pad that they need that little push extra. Great bit of kit though.

    Same issue

    Just upgraded to an iPad. I found I couldn't access the sound through the output jack socket and did a search which guided me to this forum (thankfully). Silly me, just a little more push and I would have been there.
    Looking forward to reading through the rest of the forum and getting the best out of my new acquisition.

    Same problem here, no sound through the headphone jack. It took a real firm push to get the jack in that last 2 mm. Thanks again iPad Forums.net.

    Audio jack volume controls is tricky

    Eventhough you can hear the sound through the Ipad speakers without the earphones plugged in, you may not have any sound after the earphones are plugged in. You may have to turn up the sound again with the same volume switch on the side of the Ipad to be able to hear through the earphones.

    This had us really baffled. You can apparently control both the speakers and the earphone jack separately with the same volume control on the side. We thought the thing was broken since we had been listening to s book in our car. It seemed to suddenly stop working but after much frustration we accidently tried turning up the volume again after plugging it in and its just fine.

    iPad Audio output to Car Speakers

    Thanks littlebuddah and others for the tip to simply give the plug, on the 3.5 mm stereo connector cable, an extra little push....it kind of snaps into place in the iPad...and out came perfect sound from our Chrysler MyGig sound system (it has an aux audio-in port).
