IPad 3 Plays Video - Sound Cracking With Low Pitch
Jul 3, 2012
So it's like just 3rd day when I got my new iPad. Its iPad 3, 16GB wifi only version. I copied some videos into to it using iTunes, it didn't allow me to copy .flv videos, I suppose that's okay. I copied .mp4 videos that I'd got from youtube. In the Video app, I could see names and darkened thumbnails of the video which I had copied. The Video looked alright but the audio sounded like a low-pitch, low quality sound.
And also it was really low. It exactly sounds like VLC media player when the volume is turned upto 200 or more. In short, the sound is cracking. I'm not sure why it's happening. I downloaded a video podcast from Store and it played really well. I suppose the coded was mp4 avc1. Those videos also do not work on my Nokia S60V5 phone, this is iPad, right?
General :: Cracking Distorted Sound When Playing Any Type Of Audio On IPad
Aug 23, 2014
when playing sound of any kind (music, garageband,youtube etc) it sounds very distorted like a broken speaker. it also plays distorted through the headphones. and it is set on low but seems to be sounding quite loud.
I am not sure but it may have started after i downloaded an app hangman rss pro which i like to play. i was playing the free version and decided to upgrade. anyway, i dont see how that could affect the sound throughout the ipad but just thought i would throw it out there.
IPad 4 :: Cracking Sound From Speaker When Music Part Contains High Frequencies
Mar 15, 2013
I recently bought an iPad 4 Wifi 32GB (black version). I have used it for like a month and a half now and I experienced some issues with my iPad. In short, I have two problems:
Problem 1 : I recently downloaded the app called "iDJ2GO". It's a dj app where you can mix music. This app also contains an equalizer with three options: bass - mid - treble.
When I was playing music (electro house) I turned down the mid button. Besides the song it was playing, I also heard a crackling sound. (it's difficult to describe). Then I turned the mid button up again and the crackling sound was gone. I don't think the speaker is blown up because the volume was only as high as 50%. The sound wasn't very loud.
When I play music from the music library I hear a cracking sound. This is especially noticable when the music part contains high frequencies. I just think the sound of the speaker isn't as good as it used to be. Normally an Ipad would sound clearly when it plays high frequencies.
Problem 2 : My iPad speaker makes static noise when pause the music. (it disappears after about 10 seconds). It isn't loud and you can only hear it when you put your ear in front of the speaker. The static noise als appears when I play music and turn the volume down to 0.
Maybe me speaker must be replaced. And I already did the 10 seconds reset with the home button and sleep button.
My questions are:
1) Do you think it's normal? (I don't think it's normal).
2) Have you experienced the same problems with your iPad?
I have no sound from the built-in speaker of iPad 2 and also from my headphone, this issue does exist with Mp3s, videos , games , apps , keyboard sound, alert sound,...everything. I tried every solution discussed in the Apple support but most of them are only related to novice people or for the one who do not fully aware with this device.
The following points represent some solutions which I got from searching all discussions,.... but no way ! 1- General => Use Side Switch to" =>Select Mute. Then use the rocker switch on the side to turn up the sound. Result :No Sound ! 2- Double-click the Home button =>Flick from left to right=> un-slash the mute button on the bottom left. Finding :The sound was not muted at all! 3- Try doing a system reset (Press the Home button and the sleep button for a while,....etc.). Result: No way ..No Sound! 4- Unplug/plug the headset =>No Sound ! 5-Try doing a system restore =>No Sound !
This problem might be considered as system crash/bug in the IOS core, so please fix it in the next IOS update! If that was related to a hardware crash, I wonder why everything is working in this device except the sound?
IPad 4 :: IOS 7.1.1 - After Update No Sound From Speakers
Jun 27, 2014
Since upgrading to iOS 7.1.1 I have lost sound from the speakers as it appears other have as well. Like the other posts, I do have sound with ear buds and headphones but not with various apps. Tried resetting per all the instructions, changing mute / lock switch for volume, making 100% sure volume is up everywhere etc., last test was a full restore which was still unsuccessful. Also verified sound / mic etc., was allowed in settings etc.
The weird part is that some apps work like YouTube, Music but nothing from other various apps. Well not exactly nothing, when the volume is raised and maxed out,I can faintly hear the sounds but it's like the volume is suppressed or something. If the volume works perfectly in Music then is it safe to assume there is no problem with the volume at all?

Sound Working Only In Earphones Not In Speakers On IPad 3
May 6, 2012
I realized the sound was only working for alerts, but when tried to use apps, youtube or even my videos, there is no sound. Curiously, I plugged in my headphone and the sound works normally. I've already tried the mute/rotation button, changed its setting, and nothing happened - still only have sound through my headphones.
I have a IPad 4 the issue I have is that whilst in game apps there is no sound through the speakers however whilst the headphones are plugged in i can hear sound. Its worth mentioning that I can hear sound through the speakers in iTunes or sky app.
I've had an iPad 3 for two years without inconvenience, but the other day an App caused a crash (the iPad froze completely) and I had to reset it by pressing home and off at the same time a few seconds. When it booted up it had no sound, although I had it with volume and Silence mode off. I reset it again by turning off and on normally. When it restarted, I opened a music App. When I played a song, the audio was distorted. I plugged in my headphones and I had same results. When I received a mail, the tone also sounded distorted.
I've had my iPad for about 36 hours and for the last 24 the sound hasn't worked. When turning the iPad back on, the sound works for a second but then quits working. The volume buttons on the side do not do anything when pushed. I've adjusted the volume from settings and it is turned up but no sounds comes out. In the iPod app, it says "dock connected" even when it isn't plugged in. My headphones work great, there's just no sound from the speakers. I've restored the iPad and there is no change. Hardware failure or am I doing something wrong?
Information: MacBook Pro 2.4 GHz Intel Core Duo 2 Mac OS X (10.6.3) iPhone 3GS, iPad WiFi
as the topic says, i got no sound with my speakers on my ipad,only when i plug in my earphones i got sound. when i also try to adjust the volum settings on the right side of the ipad, it says earphones even when my earphones is not pluged in.
It sounds like my ipad has locked the sound so it only works with earphones/headsets.
i have tried to reboot it, but its still the same problem. Is there anything in the settings i have to do to unlock this?
I am getting no sound from speakers with alarms, new emails etc? I can hear songs through iPod app though. I checked all my settings and all have volume all the way up. Was working fine this morning (alarm), and now nothing. Even turned on key click sounds and no sounds?
