    Hi guys,

    My ipad is producing a hissing/static noise when the speaker is activated, it can be heard if I put my ear up close, as far as 15 cm away. The hiss stops after a while, can be anytime upto 30 seconds before the hissing stops. I heard a pop whilst watching a youtube video and think it started then.

    Please out your ear up to your ipad when typing, can you hear a ssshhhh sound?

    Thankyou.

    Hello Fluidz,
    It seems that your iPad has developed a physical problem - possibly a loose connection? Have you dropped or jarred your iPad?

    It may be best to take it into your apple store for a check etc.

    Hi Richard,

    I haven't dropped or jarred the Ipad. I may pop into an Apple store if I can verify its just my Ipad, I assume nobody else hears the hiss?

    Thanks

    Hi Fluidz - I agree w/ Richard that you likely have a hardware issue, but just a few more comments: 1) If you have not 'Reset' the iPad, give that a try (directions below); and 2) Change the 'Side Switch' back & forth and its function from mute in Settings. And a few questions: 1) Does the 'hissing' change in loudness and/or disappear when you adjust the volume rocker? If so, then you might want to blow some compressed air into the rocker; and 2) Does this affect the headphone jack, i.e. do you hear the sound w/ headphones plugged into the device? Let us know & good luck! Dave :)
