    My sound bar would switch on/off then disappear while playing music, vids, and games. If I play a game for 20 mins or so the sound goes back to normal without issue, till i shut it off. Any suggestions?

    Have you tried rebooting the iPad? Hold down the power button until you see "slide to power off". Slide the slider across. Once it has powered down, hold down the power button for a few seconds until you see the apple logo. See if this fixes the problem.

    Tried rebooting, but the problem is still there. Also noticed that if I disconnect the cord after charging the sound problem occurs.

    Sounds like Mute is active. Check the side switch. If you see an orange dot the iPad is muted. Move it back to enable system sounds.

    The mute is off. Sound comes and goes, and if you're playing a game then it would freeze. Game not iPad
