Re: iPad mic not working with Skype

Hi, 

 

Try to reboot the iPad (hold the sleep button until the red slider appears, slide the red slider and once the screen is blank press the sleep button again). This has worked for me.

Re: iPad mic not working with Skype

Is the mic working with other apps (not Skype)?

Re: iPad mic not working with Skype

I just got the fix from posters on the Apple forums.  My mic hadn't been working for 2 months.  The problem isn't skype, or Facetime, it's the mic.  Vacuum the mic opening using the crevice tool on your vacuum cleaner, getting as tight a suction as possible, using fingers to block spaces if necessary.  You may have to hold it there as long as 30 seconds, but it worked for me in no more than 5 seconds of vacuuming.  On the iPad 2, the mic opening is a tiny slot on the very edge of the iPad case, near the camera.  Not easy to find, but once found, easily fixed!

Re: iPad mic not working with Skype

Hold your vacuum cleaner nozzle over the microphone blocking the spare space with your hand to get maximum suction. The microphone is a tiny hole on the side opposite the on off button. I was going spare and tried this and it works instantly! The hole gets blocked, hence no sound.
