    This came out of the blue. There is no sound except via headphones. The audio slider says headphones even though none are in. When I go to settings , sounds these come up though. Any advice gratefully received

    Hi, welcome to iPF!

    The symptoms you're describing can be caused by debris or an object in the headset jack. Look at it, and if you find something there, try to remove it, if possible, but be careful when doing so. If you can't do it yourself, visit the next Apple Store.
    If there is light debris, such as lint, in the headset jack, try connecting the headphones to the headset jack and then remove them. Do this several times to remove the debris.

    What else you could try:
    Make sure your device isn't muted.
    Reset your iPad: press and hold Home and Power button simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, then release both and let the iPad power up on it's own.

    What @J.A. said. I've actually had the same issue on my iPad a few days ago. A hard reset did the trick. Usually bugs like these are software related and a hard reset will resolve the issue.
