    Hi!
    Fairly new to the iPad here.
    Everything was working fine till 2days ago. I charged my iPad and when I next used it, there was no sound.
    I DO get sound when I connect to charge, but only that ONE sound. Then all else goes quiet on me.
    When I press the volume buttons on the side, nothing happens, no volume bar appearing either.
    I have reset the iPad several times both hard and soft. Synced again and again. Even changed cables.
    Nothing worked, please help as I cannot return to Apple coz I am not in USA for another 2months.

    Any and all advise / help will be much appreciated.

    Saad

    I would do a backup and then do a restore, this will wipe your ipad and then restore the firmware and finally restore your backup. See if that helps.

    You didn't, by chance, lock the volume control in the mute/off position did you?

    Settings
    iPod
    Volume Limit
    (unlock volume limit and slide volume up)

    Another thought - is something plugged into the earphone jack? I have a stylus that plugs into the jack to keep it from getting lost. Obviously, this renders the sound mute. Just a thought.

    You don't happen to have the developers 4.2 iOS installed do you? The orientation switch becomes a mute switch in 4.2.

    I have been having the same problem. You can adjust the volume sometimes before you type in your password so its not the button, its not the speaker, its the software. Did you remember what app you installed just before that happened?

    Note, after posting this I saw that in the Ipod app it seems to think the ipad is docked, the upper left corner says "Dock Connector" and is not the volume control as it should be... For some reason the Ipad thinks it's docked...

    Same problem. Well, almost. It recognizes when it's not docked, but won't play when it is docked. That's a BIG problem! Why should I have to take my Ipad off the dock to listen to it?

    Mute button on top of volume control

    Thanks Beamer4343! Your solution worked for me too! I was getting really frustrated since no sound was coming out unless I used my iPod app for songs. Flipping that switched saved me a call to Apple custie service!
