    last night the sound just stopped while I was in the middle of a game. I've checked every setting I know of and still nothing. I did a restore and it upgraded to the latest 7.0.6 and still no sound. No sound with Siri or keyboard. Headsets work fine. Any suggestions?

    Did you check the switch in the upper right side, with the home button at the bottom

    Have you tried resetting your iPad, something worth doing with any system update, particularly if your iPad "plays up" after that?
    Simultaneously hold down the On/Off and Home buttons until the screen blacks out. Keep holding both until the white Apple logo appears and then let both go. Then wait until your wallpaper appears. Restart your iPad.

    Hello, thank you for your reply. Yes, I have tried that reset. I have also tried 'reset all settings', 'erase all content and settings', 'reset network settings' under the General/Reset options.

    Anything else? I'll try anything at this point. Thank you.

    Clean the headphone jack and/or the dock connector. Use a toothbrush or a vacuum cleaner and be careful when doing it. Maybe there's dust or something else that makes your device think it's still plugged in.

    Ok, I had already tried compressed air in both ports. That didn't help. I will now try the vacuum....fingers are crossed!
