    Hello
    I'm new to this forum. My problem is that I normally worked with Ipad 3 (I watched a video on youtube). I went out and when I returned, the sound no longer works. I tried everything, I even reset. But the problem persists. With the headphones I hear the sound. Thank you in advance

    Have you checked that the top LHS sound toggle button (iPad in landscape view) is not set to zero? Or in Settings, Sounds, the volume slide is on?

    Thank you "The OB." If I understood

    I have checked:
    - The side button is positioned outward
    - Click twice on the home button. Scrolls to the right in the row of icons there. Verify that the cursor is at the maximum of the sound.


    I did everything and still the same problem.

    That was OK, for the second part, ( click twice on the home button etc...)
    Not sure what you mean by the "side button is positioned outward". In landscape mode the sound button is on the TOP left hand side not on the side of the iPad. Press the left side of the toggle switch to make sure there is sound. If that did not work, there are other possible solutions. Let us know?

    OK no good re the sound buttons discussed (you did check Settings, Sound, no doubt?)
    Go to the App you were using to watch the video (YouTube?) and hold your finger down on the icon until it jiggles. Press the minus sign on the icon and then restart your iPad. Any good?

    Hi, here's my idea: Double click on the Home Button. Look at the bottom toolbar and make sure the Sound Icon, the first icon, is on. Let me know if it works. :)

    That was a good suggestion by mscosmo. Would you care to respond, whether successful or not? If not, there may be other solutions.

    I double click the "home" button, I switch to the right, I see the button Sound Icon, is on. I can hear the sound through the headphones, but speakers still do not work

    OK here are some further suggestion and that I guess will be it from me. Others may chip in. If still no go then I suggest you let your fingers do the walking and get onto that Safari icon,or the Search function in these forums.
    *** Is the mute function turned on? That is, you can use the side switch to either lock the screen orientation (portrait or landscape) OR to mute some iPad sounds or alerts. To change the function of the side switch, = Settings>General> "Use Side Switch" to either lock rotation or mute.
    *** Hold down the Power and Home buttons until the Apple logo appears. Wait and the iPad will reboot, Check the sound buttons/slider then.
    *** Reset your iPad. Settings>General>Reset and then tap "Reset all Settings"
    Hope that may help, Andrew

    I agree with with Andrewddc28: change the function of the side switch. :)

    When you try turning the volume up/down, does the speaker icon (in the middle of the screen) say HeadPhones? even if the headphones are unplugged?

    "Sound Effects" without headphones
    Once I plug in the headphones it says "Sound Effects (headphones)"

    Every now and then my ipad does this. I usually just reset it and it goes back to normal.

    Ok. It only says Sound Effects if you've got the Change with Buttons switch on in Settings > Sounds.

    Having the button on means that when you change volume all sounds, including system sounds are adjusted. Having it off means that the system sounds remain at the set level no matter what you do to the volume buttons.

    Try turning the switch on/off and adjusting the sound levels in each mode to see if you can unstuck whatever is stuck.

    The Reset All Settings suggestion The OB gave should have fixed this, but who knows.

    It is also possible you have a hardware problem. The only way to know for sure is to do a restore (not from backup) and see if it persists. If it does, your iPad is still under warrantee if less than a year old, or two years of you bought AppleCare.

    If you contact Apple they are almost certain to suggest a restore before you return or go in for a visit.

    I tried everything even restoring the ipad by itunes, but still the same problem. I believe that I have more than contacted the apple, maybe it's a hardware problem. Thank you all, thank you for the time that you have spent. It's nice of you.
