    Do you mean you've recorded video and there is no sound on playback? If so, then it's likely your mic was blocked when recording. It's the hole above the forward facing camera. You have to figure out if you have covered it with your finger whilst recording, have a case that blocks it, or have gotten some debris in there at some point. Obviously all these are fixable for future recordings.

    I'm not blocking nothing. All I hear is static

    Likely debris in the mic itself. May need a good blowing out.

    If none of the above, possibly a hardware error. I would take it to Apple to check out.

    Hi Seniorgirl - welcome to the forum! :) When an app or a feature of the iPad seems to be misbehaving, I will start w/ the steps below (if not already done) - First, 'Force Close' the Camera app (make sure the app is not open); if not successful, then proceed to the next two steps sequentially and test after each maneuver - if still a problem, then I would agree w/ the previous poster about visiting an Apple store - good luck & let us know your results - Dave
