External Speakers Not Working

There may be a setting I'm missing, but the volume when I plug in headphones works fine...I just can't turn on or adjust the volume of my iPad's external speakers. When I play songs in iPod mode I see no volume control bar either.

Mac OS X (10.4.3)

External Speaker-Can Have External Speakers?
does anyone know if ipad has an external speaker like the 2nd gen ipod touch. its kind of nice playing games on my touch without having to wear headphones to hear the sound. will kind of suck if there is no external speaker on the ipad. you will basically be tethered to headphones for sound

Why Won't My External Speakers Play?
I use some Creature speakers with my iMac and decided to have a go with them connected to the iPad. I unplugged them from the iMac and plugged them into the iPad. The iPad's volume control read out 'headphones' when I adjust the volume but no sound emanates from the creatures.

Have External Speakers - Can Also Plug Headphones
I've been thinking about getting an iPad. I was wondering if it had any sort of external speakers (or like the iPhone, doesn't, but still can project sound)? And also if you can plug a regular headphone jack into it. It seems like it would be pretty thin (I've never used an iPad) so it seems kind of like regular headphones wouldn't be able to plug into it.Information:iPhone OS 3.1.3

It's 1 Speakers Not Working.
Recently for some reason the speakers stopped working but the headphones still work. I have tried all of the possible solutions tried by others on the forum with the same problem i.e. playing around with the rotation lock and mute combinations, complete system restore (numerous times) and taking it in to the store.

They couldn't get it working and because it was bought in the USA and I live in the UK and it is 13 months old the only solution as far as they were concerned was to trade it in for a new one. Has anybody got any bright ideas before I trade it in?

Speakers Are Not Working On It
My IPad first generation has began to stay always "dock connected" also if it's not, and with no sound from the speakers. I cannot turn up the volume, because it doesn't work. I have already done everything like soft reset, hard reset, reboot the system from iTunes, but the audio still doesn't work. The headphones works. It's not the mute button, but seems to be something about the soft.

Speakers Are Not Working On IPad 2?
I seem to only have sound on my iPad 2 via headphones. I have tried turning it off completely (attached and detached to my charger); I've checked all volume options, including the mute switch, but to no avail. The only thing I have not yet tried is hooking up to my computer as I'm not sure how much it'll really help.

Sound Working Only In Earphones Not In Speakers On IPad 3
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.

Computer Speakers Via Bluetooth Speakers For Movies And Music?
I've using he iPad for over a month and I've been thinking about getting a pair of Bluetooth speakers for movies and music. Then an idea came - is it possible to connect the iPad to the speakers on my desktop computer such that the iPad sees them as Bluetooth speakers? I'm guessing there's an app on the computer side for that.

Get Music From IPhone To MobileMe / Streaming Videos From External HDD / Setting External Storage Accessible
So as my signature says I used to be the owner of a Unibody MacBook 2.4 Ghz decked out with 4Gb RAM and Moshi Palmguard/Clearguard.

My first Mac, got it first day they came out in October 2008. Best computer I ever had, and almost 2 years later was still going strong! Never had ONE issue with it.

So last weekend it got stolen from my house (I work for a university and live in a staff house on campus). I almost NEVER leave my MacBook at home, but last weekend I had to leave town in a hurry with the girlfriend and decided to just leave it at my house. Little did I know that it was going to be the last time I ever saw it ;(. Somebody broke into my house and that was the only thing they stole.

So since then ive been weighing my options. Yesterday I went and purchased an iPad for work and am trying to see if I can survive without a MacBook.

I have a PC at the office and an iPhone 4. So I decided to give the ipad a try in order to see if it can replace my MacBook for the most basic functions.

Here are my concerns:

- getting my music off my iPhone to MobileMe so I can stream it from my PC to my iPhone an iPad.

- streaming videos from my external HDD to my iPad

- setting up some external storage accessible from the iPad

What do you guys think? Am I crazy for even trying this?

What are your suggestions for apps that could fill my needs?

BTW I am loving the iPad. It's such a great complement to my iPhone. Love the size of the screen and ease of use. It makes me think that an ideal setup would be an iPad, iPhone and Mac mini hooked up to tv. ?? Needless to say this was typed from my iPad

Presentation On External Screen - Projector/external Monitor
I hope this isn't an old question, I tried searching but couldn't find anything. So here comes: I'm thinking about buying an ipad for academic presentations. These are all in pdf format. Ideally, I would like to be able to have the projector/external monitor show the pdf slides one by one and the ipad's own monitor display my notes (also pdf). Is this possible yet with the ipad, and what app would I need? Information:

No Sound From Speakers
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?

Adjust More Speakers To Get Louder
I use my iPad all the time for movies and music, but I'm not happy with headphones. The iPad's internal speakers are OK, but the experience would be much more "impressive" if there were a pair of forward-facing speakers with the ability to play a little louder and deeper. I had always hoped someone would build a case for the iPhone that provided enhanced sound so that the device could be used like a miniature boom-box, but there were obvious space and power constraints. It seems to me that the iPad provides an opportunity for something similar. I realize that I could pair the iPad with a pair of Bluetooth speakers or run a cord from the headphone jack or the dock connector to an external sound system, but there's a certain elegance in an all-in-one, transportable solution.

Why Not Use The Same Speakers In Iphone/ipod
Has anyone heard how the speakers will sound? I am hoping they are at least the quality speakers from the iPhone if not better. I was really disappointed with the speakers in the iPod Touch. I used to have an iPhone and iPhone 3G then I switched to Verizon so I got a 32GB iPod Touch and wow is there a difference in audio through the speakers. Why wouldn't they just use the same speakers in the iPhone and iPod Touch?

Case With Built-In Amp/Speakers?
The iPad is a fantastic audio and video machine. But the speakers leave something to be desired -- they don't face the same way as the screen, they're very directional, and I think the speaker output is mono like on the iPhone. Don't get me wrong; the built-in speaker is pretty impressive given the constraints imposed by the iPad's industrial design. I'm not a big fan of headphone listening, though, and I much prefer speakers. Does anybody make a case with a small amplifier and a pair of speakers built in? Something with its own battery that'll play louder than the iPad's native audio? That would make for a very cool all-in-one media machine that would be perfect for couch-surfing or viewing/listening while working out on a treadmill or stationary bike!

No Sound With Speakers, Only Earphones?
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?

No Sound With Speakers Plugged In
Ive got an iPad 16g. The other day I was listening to music at work using plug in speakers I unplugged them to do something real quick and when I plugged them back in I had no sound from the speakers! I looked down inside the port on the iPad and noticed that one of the small brass tabs at the bottom of the port was almost flush with the wall of the port, and that I am getting sound to the speakers but it is very minimal, as in I can barely hear anything at all!

Get Music From It Onto HiFi Speakers?
I realise there are going to be a number of options here, so let's lay out some details first.

1: I don't want to have any computer on to do this.

2: I don't want to have any TV on to do this.

3: I want to pay as little as possible to make this work.

4: It could be limited to one, room, but an option to have it work in multiple rooms would of course be nicer if it were possible.

Say I have MP3 music tracks on my iPad, and I wish to listen to this music on some other speakers around the house, or possibly just in one room if around the house is not practical.I have a number of micro/mini type CD/Radio HiFi units around the home with audio in jacks. So using speakers I already have with those items, again would be nice.What are the possible options I'd have to look at? I'd imagine many people would love to be able to do the same. Be in a room and have your music come out over nice speakers.

I'd be interested to hear your ideas on what there is out there to use to make this happen?

Charger Review - Speakers Or Headphones
First off, like someone mentioned its only a charger when using the ac adapter that came with your ipad 1) It has a nice durable feel to it, color is gloss white (the gloss flare I did w/ photoshop) and goes well with the ipad 2) The bottom has some kinda of rubber material, is good so it wont move around, good thinking by the maker 3) The ipad fits great in this stand, very sturdy, doesnt flake aroundAnd finally there is port for audio out (line out) as well as port for the ipad av cable (out) so you can output to TV.. These ports are important to me especially the audio out as when I listen to music with speakers or headphones, I can plug in and out and not having to worry about port breaking on ipad, if the port breaks on stand I can replace with another, port break on ipad- thats an issue, especially after warranty has expired. (this has happen to me on many radio/mp3 devices, and the device would become unusable..)

Volume Controls For Bluetooth Speakers?

A) i know iOS implementation of AVRCP is limited to play and pause,
B) i've spent a couple of days googling around, and i found out about Music Control app, witch isn't what i need.

I have a Sony Ericsson MBS-100 speaker that doesn't have volume control buttons. While paired via bluetooth, any way to change the output volume? iTunes won't alow it. This sucks. I must wait for iOS 4.1?

Any hacks available?

Won't Connect To Airport Speakers Via Airplay
Recently installed 4.2 on my iPad.
Using the iPod app or Pandora, I can see my enabled Airport Express speakers, but they fail to connect when selected. (actually, they've connected for a few seconds a couple of times, but promptly fizzle out and won't connect again)
Additionally, after a failed attempt at connecting to the Airport Express speakers, all other apps will not connect to the network until a the iPad is restarted.

The speakers work perfectly with iTunes on my Mac (via Airplay), so I imagine it's not a problem with my network. Also, the firmware on both Airport modules is up to date.
