    Hi all,

    My Wife's IPAD 2 developed a weird situation.

    Some game apps have audio and some don't!! Also, the "received mail" audio notification doesn't work either.

    On the apps that do work, the volume will go up/down. The headphones don't work!

    I could see all or nothing working but some just some??

    All the audio functions are on. I read some previous posts. Full reboot didn't help as well as the lock rotate deal.

    Any info appreciated....Ken

    Chances are good that you've got Mute on.

    Depending on what you have set in Settings > General > Set Side Switch To: The mute will either be the slide switch next to the volume buttons, or a bell icon in the Control Panel (the panel you slide up from the bottom of the screen).

    Mute does not turn off all volume. It's designed to silence alarms and other system sounds, so they don't embarrass you at meetings or other public-be-quiet areas. Most music and audio apps are not affected. Games tend to go either way, depending on the developer.
