Hi, hope you can help me, I just got an Ipad 2 from a friend and the volume control doesn’t work. There is no sound through the speaker, but when I plug in the headphones, they work fine. I can only hear the ringer setting when I test it, and when I try to reguilate the volume by the controls, it shows “Headphones volume” How can I adjust it so that I can hear whatever I’m listening to through the speaker without having to use headphones?
It sounds like your iPad is stuck in Headphones Mode. Take a look at these resources:

Hope these help you out. Congrats on your New-To-You iPad!!!!
