    Is it everything, or just things like alerts, ringtones, etc?

    If so these sound levels can be set to ignore the volume control switch. Go to Settings > General > Sounds to change alert volume levels and/or make it so they will be adjusted with the volume buttons.

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    Ok, that sounds like maybe a hardware failure, if the volume buttons do not work; but before go to Apple try a restart and/or reset and see if that helps.


    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.

    and then a reset if that does not work.

    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.

    Also, you can control the volume from the multitask bar. Double tap the Home button (on the face of the iPad) to get the multitask bar, then slide the icons to the right. You'll see several controls, including a volume slider. Normally this is for the Music app, but it also controls overall volume for the iPad.
