    Recently for some reason the speakers stopped working but the headphones still work. I have tried all of the possible solutions tried by others on the forum with the same problem i.e. playing around with the rotation lock and mute combinations, complete system restore (numerous times) and taking it in to the store. They couldn't get it working and because it was bought in the USA and I live in the UK and it is 13 months old the only solution as far as they were concerned was to trade it in for a new one. Has anybody got any bright ideas before I trade it in? Any help would be really appreciated.

    dunno, I'm sure you could find some repair shop to send it to that would be cheaper than purchasing a new iPad.

    but if you go the route of getting a new one, maybe wait until the iPad 3 launch's to get a exchange discount on the new iPad.

    Repair shop or craigslist a person. Or you could try taking it into apple. But since they dont readily stock the ipad 1 anymore it might be a long shot.

    I am also having sound problems on my iPad 1. This started happeing this week. I can get sound when the headphones are plugged in. When I unplug them the applications that have sound indicate "volume not available." When I look at the multi-function area the volume slider does not appear when on internal speakers but reappears when I plug in the headphones. I have tried rebooting, and resetting the iPad but no luck. I did notice that upon reboot I get system sound (i.e. button clicks) when it first starts up but then that goes away in 10-15 seconds upon unlocking the iPad. Any ideas?

    Hi Dan-just reading another response by one of other Super Moderators, Leelai...she had asked the member whether or not the headphones had a control switch attached to it. If you do, check to see that the mute switch on your headphones isn't switched on.

    I have no mute on the headphones. The headphones are working the internal speakers are not.

    Have you checked your side switch settings? Go to settings/general/side switch.

    Turn on the mute that turn it off.

    See if that works.

    Your issue is a fairly common one in these forums.

    There is a known bug with sound related to V5.1

    Follow the steps below and let us know if your problem is resolved.


    1. Settings/General/Use Side Switch To: and change check mark from lock rotation to mute
    2. Now mute the iPad from the side switch. You know it's set to mute when the red dot is visible on the switch.
    3. Now unmute the iPad from the side switch. You know mute is off when red dot is no longer visible.
    4. Test your iPad to see if problem has been resolved.
