IPad 3 :: Audio Not Working - Gray Sound Effects Icon Comes Up When Trying To Adjust Volume
Oct 21, 2013
My iPad sound all of a sudden won't work. When I try to adjust the volume, a gray 'Sound Effects' icon comes up, but doesn't adjust volume. I tried a hard reset, power on/off, even the mute switch which I knew wasn't the problem. From what I read on the Apple forum, it seems to be something hardware related with the dock connector. Apparently, metal debris gets in there. I tried to look at it but don't see any debris in there. I tried also switching the charging cable.
IPad 3 Volume Control Says Sound Effects And Won't Adjust
May 1, 2012
Regardless of the mute button/orientation lock whenever I push up or down on the volume control buttons on the side of the iPad, the Volume indicator that lights up in the center of the screen says "Sound Effects" and there are no bars below it to indicate the actual volume, and it will not change. If I double press the home button, and swipe right to the dimmer/volume/play controls, the volume bar doesn't even show up in its location there. I'm thinking that the kids changed something in one of their games. And turning it off, or even doing the hard reset of pushing the home and off button simultaneously doesn't clear the problem out.
Different Sound Effects Volume Controls In Settings?
May 24, 2012
I recently realized that the main volume control in settings isn't the only control and that Mute doesn't really mean Mute (its Different). There is a volume control in settings under sounds that corresponds to the side buttons (if set up that way). The is also a "sound effects" volume that the side buttons seem to control, but only during certain conditions. When "sound effects" volume comes into play and what it controls if not notification sounds? There is also the Mute switch which only Mutes Apps sounds and notifications, but it doesn't Mute Safari or YouTube so it obviously doesn't Mute all Apps.
There is also the volume controls found in the taskbar which seem to be tied to the ipod side of things, but also control the camera shutter sound and keyboard clicks. This has to be the most confusing way of doing volume ever. Separate sliders for each volume in Settings under Sounds and a couple switches in Settings to choose what gets muted, easy, intuitive, done. Unless someone could explain the logic behind their method and/or explain "sound effects" volume and/or how to actually mute the speaker entirely and easily.
I understand it one of best ways of securing wifi Is to hide the ssid. But when I try this my devices obviously can't connect to the network. Even though they have connected before so should remember the network. I have altered the default admin password on router.

I use my iPad to access Facebook and other Social Networking sites. My father also uses that iPad. How can I hide the updates of Facebook from my Father and other family members. Is it possible to do so on iPad?
