    further to this, I definitely think it has got "stuck" on the lock mute/thing as sometimes I will change the settings, reboot, and then go back and the changes have not stuck

    Thanks Fid. your solutions for my sudden loss in volume involving running apps in the background combined with shut off/on did the trick for me. I was shocked to see that EVERY app I had was running in the background. Thought that was really strange and will want to investigate further.

    Hi folks,

    I also am having this problem.

    Sounds work on my speakers (i.e., alerts), but iTunes, videos, etc., do not work.

    I have my mute unlocked. There flat out isn't a sound bar to adjust - it just appears as an empty bar with no ball to slide up or down.

    When I put my headphones in and pull them out, my sound bar will return and it will work, but if I try to adjust it, it will disappear again and the sound will become totally muted.

    If I double tap the home button and slide the bar over, I can restore the audio if I mute and unmute using the mute button on the right side.

    And, yes, I have closed all apps and rebooted the iPad.

    Should I be taking this to a Genius Bar?

    please help - i have IPAD 3 about a week ago the sound on speakers started crackling, now the sound is off completely.

    Is this an Apple issue with the Ipad 3?

    I have powered off IPAD now not sure what to do next. I am also not in the country where i bought the Ipad

    thanks Debbie

    Shouldn't matter. Sounds like a hardware failure since it took its time. Head for the Apple Store and a replacement. Make an appointment before you turn up at the Genius Bar.

    I had the same exact problem but it was with my iPad mini, which Is what I'm using right now.. The way I got it to work was to go into settings, general, reset and reset all settings.. I have had this problem several times on my iPad and iPod touch, n this seems to be the only way to fix the problem.. If this doesn't work then you may have to bring it in to like best buy or something and have them to try n fix it, though I don't trust bestbuy with my electronics, but your choice

    OMG Midranger,

    I've been beating my head against the wall trying to figure out the same exact sound problem. The pin problem was exactly it. I jus blew in the connector opening and plugged the charger wire in and then pulled it out and now the sound is working again.

    Thanks So Much!! :-D
