    I. Have checked sound, other programs have sound. The time bar initially moved across the screen but now just shows as playing, but does not...any ideas? I also tried re-syncing to iTunes on laptop, still no luck. Thanks in advance

    Have you tried to do the immediate fixes?

    Force the app to quit by pushing the home button twice to bring up your multi-task bar. This will show all the apps that you have visited. By long pressing the app in question, it will begin to jiggle-press the red circle with the negative sign on the app. It will only quit the app and not delete. Than try to re-open the app and test out.

    If that doesn't work, restart the iPad by pressing the power switch down to power off.

    Third is to do a soft reset by holding the power switch and home button together until you see the apple logo. Hope that helps!

    Yes try to force close the apps.

    And just to make sure you have done this...do the reset as described as above.

    Yes, Music is an app. Are you trying to play local music or are you using music match?

    FYI...not using music match..., haven't purchased that yet...guess it is local then. I have purchased several singles on this iPad also, not just transfer from laptop, and both don't respond

    Press the home button twice until you get your multi task bar. Swipe to the left until you see your music controls. Make sure the volume is on.

    Also go to settings/general/sideswitch options. Make sure THE mute ...UNCHECKED

    Ok--so you have quit the apps, did a restart, a reset, checked your iPad settings, and also increased your volume control thru the music controls in the multitask bar.

    Was this working for you before? Did you use head phones with your iPad ?

    Your volume switch on the side is hight enough to hear sound?

    Yep, all, everything looked good. Tried vevo right now and that loud and clear. Changed sound from hip hop to bass boost in general/settings. Once had used earphones...will check that..thank u for trying to help me, this just doesn't make sense. Been dealing with for last week. Only thing that changed was that I had done a sync with my laptop. :(

    Also no sound in earphones. Maybe I should do factory reset...but that is going to be a pain.

    Before you do a factory reset, try Reset All Settings. Much less destructive.

    Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings.

    You'll have to re-tweak most of your settings, but no app, data, or account information will be deleted.


    And just out of curiosity, when the Music app is open, does the volume slider at the top right appear and adjust; both by touch and using the volume buttons. No idea what you would do if it doesn't, but for some reason I thought to see if I could operate mine independently. I can't.

    Oh yeah, probably already checked, but in Settings > Music, do you have the Volume Limit turned off. Try toggling it.
