You need to turn off the mute.  The side switch is the key.  Depending on your settings, it may affect the mute or it may affect the rotation lock.  This support article from Apple provides detail.

In case you're wondering, here is the history.  Originally, the mechanical switch affected only the rotation lock and the mute was a software switch elsewhere.  In IOS-3, it was changed to be the mute switch and the rotation lock became a software switch.  This was done to ensure consistency among IOS devices.  Unfortunately, a large quantity of users complained loudly, alleging that they turned the rotation lock on and off several times every hour and the convenience of the mechanical switch is essential.  In IOS-4, Apple bowed to the whiners and made the switch function selectable and now we're stuck with a mess.

  • How can I get any of the search requests to open in a new tab and not the current window. I have just downloaded the new FF8

    In my previous version of FF, whenever I did a search with any search engine the results opened in a new tab. Now with FF8 the results open in the current window which really is inconvenient. How do I get the search results to open in a new tab instead?
    I have Windows xp FF8

  • I updated my first generation iPad to version 5.1.1 and won't go past the setup screen that asks if I want to use the iPad locator. I can go back but can't get any further.

    I just updated my original iPad 32 GB WiFi to iOS 5.1 about fifteen minutes ago.  But I did it with the system restore feature in iTunes.  So it wiped out everything on my iPad.  But it did work.  Then I restored an earlier backup and all went fine.  Maybe you could try backing up your iPad and then using Restore to get it back to factory settings to see what happens.

  • Can't Get Any Guitar Sound

    Hey guys!
    I just got the new Logic Pro Studio yesterday. I'm trying to record some riffs using the amp designer and such. I have my guitar hooked up to a Behringer Guitar Link USB. I set up the proper input and output showing CODEC, but I still can't get any sound from it.
    I thought it was the Guitar Link so I opened Garageband and everything turned out ok.
    Any help would gladly be appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Well, do you have headphones or speakers plugged into the Behringer? You aren't by any chance expecting sound to come out of the speakers hooked up to the Mac are you?
    Which version of Logic?

    Have you got notifications muted ? Only notifications (including games) get muted, so the Music and Videos apps, and headphones, still get sound.
    Depending on what you've got Settings > General > Use Side Switch To set to (mute or rotation lock), then you can mute notifications by the switch on the right hand side of the iPad above the volume switch, or via control centre : swipe up from the bottom edge of the screen and it's the right-most of the 5 icons in the middle of it (if the icon is white then it's 'on', tap it to turn it grey and 'off'). The function that isn't on the side switch is set via control centre instead : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4085

  • [SOLVED] Can't get any sound working at all

    I've just installed Arch again on my MacBook 5,2 and I can't get any sound (speakers or earphones) to work. I've tried the ALSA wiki page for troubleshooting, but none of that has worked. Does anyone have any ideas where to start with this?

  • I can't get any sound from ITunes. The computer's internal speakers are fine (they play utube sound, for example). And the sound bar on itunes is all the way to the right. Still no sound from the music library. Any insights?

    I can't get any sound from my ITunes library. The IMac is set to internal speakers, the volume bar on ITunes itself is all the way to the right, there seems to be no problem with the speakers themselves (they play sound from internet videos, for example), but I can't play music from the ITunes library on the IMac. Please help!

    Is it possible that you have iTunes set to send audio through AirPlay to an AirPort Express, Apple TV, or other AirPlay device (which is itself not turned up so you can hear it)?

  • I can't get any sounds from my ipod, only through earphones

    I can't get any sounds from my itouch. I can only hear through my headphones. I completely reset my itouch and still nothing

    - Try cleaning out/blowing out the headphone jack. Try inserting/removing the plug a dozen times or so. There is a little switch in the headphone jack that disconnects the speaker when the headphone jack is inserted.
    Try the following to rule out a software problem. I do not know what you meant by "completely reset my itouch".
    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Reset all settings
    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.
    - Restore from backup
    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.
    - Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store. Seems you have a bad headphone jack or other hardware problem.

  • I have a brand new Nano Ipod 7th Generation.  I can't get any sound out of earphones.  Yes, have pushed the cord all the way in.  Screen shows tunes are playing, but I can't hear anything.  Volume bar shows volume all the way up.  Now what?

    No sound out of earphones.  Yes, cord is all the way in the jack.  Screen shows tune is "playing", but I can't get any sound out.  Help

    If this is the case, I recommend to visit Apple store to request for replacement. Cheers!
