    Sounds like you have inadvertently enabled mute (which does not mute all sounds by the way!). If you ever lose some sounds, but not all sounds, it is a great indicator that you put "mute" ON! :)

    Check that you did not slide the mute switch on the side of the iPad. Many folks do this without noticing.

    If however you have the side switch set to lock rotation, then you can unmute as follows:
    Double click the home button to bring up the task switcher, swipe the apps to the right to reveal the media bar, on the left hand side is an icon for mute. Press it to un-mute your iPad.

    iPad is not muted, because music is still playing. I lost gamesounds, keyboardsounds and the "close" sound.......I'm lost

    Yes, music will still play. That does not mean you did not put mute on. Did you even check?

    I have seen this dozens of times (search if you don't believe me). It is almost ALWAYS mute.

    Also, go into Settings > Sounds > And see how you have set it up. All the sounds you described are set in there...

    Yes sir, I checked. I cannot even mute, because the sidebutton is set as a rotation lock.

    Did you read my post? If the side button is set to rotation, do this...


    Double click the home button to bring up the task switcher, swipe the apps to the right to reveal the media bar, on the left hand side is an icon for mute. Press it to un-mute your iPad.

    If not, go to Settings > Sounds > and look at the settings in there...

    You probably slid the media bar over on the switcher and pressed the mute icon by accident.
