    I had this problem before and with the help of the forum sorted it out. I have lost me clicks...keyboard, lid closing, sound when plugged into charge, etc. etc. last time it was the mute was on. This time I haven't a clue. Tried the usual, the little button at the side of the sound button governs orientation (hope that's what it us called) nothing seems to be working. Inspiration needed please. Thank you

    If you have iOS 7 installed, open the Control Center and look at this button:

    If it looks like this, it's muted.

    Have u got the sound button down to mute,very easy to do it, the button that also locks the orientation. Landscape portrait, have done this lots of times , duh, and still go wheres the sound got too. Just tried it and found out when turning the sound down with that button if you hold it down it jumps right down to mute.

    Look at Settings - Sounds, here:

    Mine are disabled, yours should be enabled, if you want to hear them. Also make sure "Change with Buttons" is enabled (same screenshot, top).

    If you haven't got a clue, even before you 'try everything', this is the simplest and most effective solution. It's amazing how often it works. I usually just turn my iPad 2 off, wait about a minute, and turn it on again. Then take a bow for once again being an effective problem solver!

    If that doesn't work - don't wanna hear about it. (Just kidding.)

    Or try to reset it. Sometimes this helps, if things are behaving weird.

    Press the Power button until you see "Slide to power off". Use this slider to turn off your device. It will need some time until it's completely turned off - a few seconds. During this period you will see a faint "wheel" running in the middle of your screen, before it's turned off completely. Then the screen will get completely black.

    Wait for a few minutes until you turn it on again.

    It just goes to prove once again technology is just as complicated as a human. Now i'm going to have a go at an avatar. ;-)

    The iPad 2 iOS is never 'deflicted', it just knows we're all nuts and has a little fun with us when it gets bored. :)

    So, when we turn it off and then back on, it then recognizes our brilliance and dutifully performs flawlessly - -- - until...
