Malfunctioning Volume Buttons on iPad

Even though there are many alternate options to adjust the volume on your iPad, they are not as convenient as the volume buttons. So if your volume buttons are stuck or not working, you might want to get the real problem addressed.

Problem #1: The Volume Buttons Are Stuck

There isn’t much you can do if the volume buttons on your iPad are stuck, as it is not a software issue.

However, keeping devices in a case for a long time might jam up their buttons if you don’t clean them occasionally. Try removing your iPad from its case and cleaning it around the sides with a wipe to see if this fixes the issue.

Quick Tip

If the volume buttons are still stuck, take your device to the nearest local Apple Store to get it fixed.

Problem #2: The Volume Buttons Are Not Working

Do you want to adjust the volume on your iPad, but nothing happens when you press the buttons? This most likely occurs due to a software issue.

Make sure your iOS device is updated. Access your iPad home screen and open the Settings app. Navigate to “General” > “Software Update”. If any new updates are available, tap “Download and Install”.

Press the volume buttons to check if they’re working once your device has been updated.

If updating hasn’t worked, try hard resetting your iPad by pressing the home button and power button simultaneously and holding until the iPad screen turns black and the Apple logo appears, indicating a successful hard reset.

To hard reset an iPad that doesn’t have a home button, quickly press the volume up and volume down buttons one by one, and then press and hold the button on top until your screen turns black and the Apple logo appears on the screen.

Keep in Mind

Sometimes, it might take 20 to 30 seconds for the device to hard reset, so be patient and keep pressing the buttons. If the buttons still don’t work, contact Apple support for further assistance.

In this guide, we have discussed where the volume on your iPad is. We have also discussed alternative methods to adjust the volume if the buttons aren’t working and how to troubleshoot them.

Hopefully, your issue is solved now, and you can quickly track and troubleshoot the volume buttons on your iPad.
