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.
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
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.
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
I've tried two pairs of my ear buds that I use in my iTouch and they do not work in my iPad. The external speakers keep playing and no sound in the buds. Anyone else having this problem? Does the iPad require new ear buds
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?
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.
iHome ID8 speakers do not seem sync with my iPad 2 after updating it to IOS 5.1.1. I always get the message, "Charging is not supported with this accessory" while I connect it to my iPad. How can I fix it?
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.
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 blutoothed my i pad 2 to some external speakers works great for i tunes and some apps but some apps still will only play through the i pad - in particulat scene and heard. i am in a special school and need this for the christmas show.
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.
I recently bought a 5.1 speakers but the problem now is my PC broke and not working so I left only with my iPad, is there any that I can fix the 5.1 speakers to my iPad? Is there any gadget available for iPad which does that? How much will it cost?
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
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:
New here just got an ipad a week ago and i can't put it down. I do have a question i want to play my music through my speakers at work. But the plug is to small so i bough an adpator for it but no sound. Does anybody have any suggestions.
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?

I have the iPad 1 still, selling it towards new iPad. Idk how the iPad 2 is compared to the first one is it the same and do you think the new iPad can give a good experience cause IPad one is to quiet.
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.
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?
