Why does the audio on my iPad2 no longer work?

Lise Franche January 3, 2012

My audio was working fine, then I touched the mic icon and now no audio on my iPad2. Tried everything and need help!

    What mic icon? You mean the voice recorder app? Is it possible you set it to record? Try opening the app again and stopping it. Or force close it from the multitasking menu.

    Or maybe you hit mute? Check the lock on the side of the ipad, it may be set to mute the audio, so just unclip it. It's the one beneath the volume controls. 

    What happens when you adjust the volume controls on the side? What does the screen show? I'm pretty sure that if you have muted it in software and not hardware, turning the volume up unmutes it again.
