Mute Switch Still Doesn't Work

Mar 10, 2011

They went through all the trouble of letting us pick between a mute switch and orientation lock, but the mute option still doesn't work. It shows the mute icon but it doesn't have any effect on the sound.

It's not a big deal to me because I use the orientation lock, but it's kinda funny that they still haven't figured out how to fix this problem.

4.2.1 Mute Switch Doesn't Mute

Nov 27, 2010

Subject pretty much covers it. After upgrade to 4.2.1, the hardware switch that used to lock the screen is now broken.Switching to the up position shows a speaker and the current volume.Switching to the down position shows a speaker with a slash through it.Neither position affects the volume of what's currently playing.

Mute Switch Does Not Work?

Apr 25, 2011

Since the upgrade to 4.3 mute switch stopped working. Just upgraded to 4.3.2 and it still does not work. I use radio apps "iDeRadio" "The Radio" "Antyradio" to listent to internet stations. When I move the side switch I can see the icon of the crossed speaker but the sound still goes out. Is it only problem with my unit or a general problem? It annoys me very much as I have to keep pressing the volume down button to get quickly mute my iPad.

Mute Button Doesn't Mute All

Nov 25, 2010

If I flip the mute button down, it shows that my sound is now muted. I start up Dominion HD (after making sure it was not in the background) and I hear the music at startup. I have to go back to the rocker switch to actually mute audio. Any ideas on how to make the mute button mute the audio?

Modification In Latest Patch For Rotate Lock Switch To Mute Switch

Nov 24, 2010

I have not idea why apple changed the switch function. It is very annoying if you are moving around with the unit and watching as the screen flops around. I think 99% of the users do not place an iPad in a fixed position when operating it, we tend in lay it down or sit and relax while using the unit. anow we have to ensure that we keep the unit in a fixed position when using it or face the flip flopping effect. For the love of god put the option to use the lock of the sceen over the silly mute button. I think we can hit the up/down keys to adjust the volume like big kids.

Mute Switch - Downgrading The OS

Nov 26, 2010

I hate the new feature of iOS 4.2 where the normal screen rotation switch has been switched to a mute switch. This seems ridiculous. Is there anyway to reverse this with out downgrading the OS? And does anyone think that Apple will change it in a later software version?

Switch From "mute" To "lock Rotate" But It Doesn't Go Back

Jun 22, 2012

side switch not working; tried to switch from "mute" to "lock rotate" but it doesn't go back from the usual setting - if its on "lock rotate" then u need to unmute it from the home button so that game sounds will work but it doesn't rotate even if side switch was already turned on. Also, "sound" logo doesnt show everytime the side switch is turn on or off unlike before. I just noticed it today when the games alert & sound is not working i thought that the problem was on its speaker. 

what to do with the side switch, i bought this last Feb 2012

Nov 26, 2011

I know this is odd, but then I'm just wondering if anyone else is having this situation. When you are streaming video but then you have a phone call and use your side switch to attempt to put your iPad on mute, but then it doesn' this normal? I'm just wondering as my side switch is set to put it on mute incase of situations like that. The 'no sound' logo does appear, but the sound is still playing for video. Just wondering if it is bc of a JB as well...

IPad 2 :: Mute Button That Does Not Mute?

Jan 4, 2014

I have tried the Apple user forum and received conflicting answers about the mute button. When I have the switch set up to mute and then use it, it does not mute music or anything though it says in the bell that comes up that what I choose was muted but was not. Apple always wants to reset.. other users say it only mutes for something's and not for music? Others have he the same problem worked well with iPad2 what the mute button really does and/or can I get it to work as I feel it should.

Mute Button Not Working ?

Feb 4, 2011

What is the purpose of the screenlock/mute button on 4.2.1? On my first iPad it did nothing, meaning that it would show the volume mute icon when activated, but the sound kept playing. Now after getting my iPad replaced (not related to this) the mute button still has no effect. Is the button completely broken in 4.2.1?

Mute Button Does Not Work

Jan 15, 2011

My mute button does not work - if I slide it, the mute icon appears, but the sound goes right on playing. This so with all the apps I've tried it with. Yes, it's the latest OS, 4.2.1

Funny thing is that I'm pretty sure that it did work when I first got the iPad about ten days ago. But it doesn't now. It's no biggie, since the volume zooms right down if you hold it, but it should work.

Any suggestions as to why this should occur? There's nothing in the settings that I can find. Or is the button just dead, and I should contact Apple?

nScreen lock button becoming a mute butto - at times doesn't even truly mute

Side Switch: Allow For "Lock Rotation" To Be Unchecked AND "Mute" To Be Unchecked?

Jun 26, 2012

I have an iPad2 which I purchased in Dec, 2011. Up until recently my default settings were allowing for the screen to rotate AND the sound of the click to be heard when I was typing. Something changed suddenly and the sound of the click when using the keyboard went away. I started looking into it and I uncovered the Side Swicth feature. But it looks like this feature only allows you to have one or the other but NOT both. In other words, it only allows to have the Mute on and the Lock Rotation off or the other way around! But not BOTH on or off at the same time! Bizarre! I am sure this must be a bug or there must be a way around it that I cannot figure out. And how did it change? New "upgrade"?

Mute Button - Ios 4.2

Nov 25, 2010

I just updates my iPad to iOS 4.2 and I noticed that the mute button only silences the tones the iPad Jakes itself, such as the Keyboard tones. But the radio just continues on the same sound level. Or when I am watching a movie on YouTube and I slide the mute button, the sound just continues.Is this normal? When I slide the mute button I do see the volume indicator saying mute, but it doesn't, exept for the keyboard sounds and maybe the mail tones.
