Hi I have searched for a solution but to no avail: all of a sudden all sound vanished from my iPad. I had been watching BBC Iplayer with no problems but when I finished watching something and wanted to view something else all I got was video and no sound. I have tried resetting, switching off the click buttons etc and rebooting and then switching them back on. Sometimes I get clicks when I tap in the security code but then that's it. No clicks when I close the screen. Sometimes I get 'sound alerts' showing when I try the volume control but nothing else. Strangely the alerts in the settings menu work when I sample them. There is no audible alert when I receive an email and no sound on web pages. I have heard that the iPad might think that it's in docking mode. How do I check? Btw it's never been docked with anything other than a power cable. I am on iOS 7. Be grateful for any advice!
