    I'm not getting sound with my earphones. I've tried two different sets of earphones, but only hear sound from the iPad speaker. Ideas?

    Have you tried turning up the volume when the headphones are securely plugged in? The volume buttons can have one setting for the speakers and a different level for the audio jack.

    Thanks for answering. I just tried that, and the sound still comes only from the speaker.

    Ok, is this a non-jailbreaked iPad? If so, have you done a reset? Hold down the Home and Power buttons until the apple appears. It will take longer than a normal power off/on, maybe a minute before the login or home screen appears. No data should be lost in this process. If you do have a JB unit, someone else will need to help as I'm not knowledgeable in those units.

    Sometimes, it's hard to seat the headphone plug. You may have to press it more than you think. So, try pushing it in more. It's finicky that way...

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad
