I'm sorry about the issue. Please try this first: press and hold both the Power (On / Off) button and the Home button (which is located right below the screen) together for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears, then wait a bit, then check.
- If that does not work, at the screen where it shows all the app icons, including the Skype icon, type and hold on the Skype icon, then tap on the x icon within the skype account and confirm delete
, then go to App Store, then type / search for skype then install Skype again and check.
Please reply at the box below to continue troubleshooting. Thank you.
Usually reboot works. It should not happen again; it is a glitch, so you likely do not need to reinstall again. Thank you.
I'm sorry; I mean usually the reboot works, but it did not work in this case. And it is strange that reinstallation of the app did not work either. Let me open the issue to other experts. Please do not wait; you will get an email / reply when there is another suggestion from another expert. Thank you for your patience.
It is important to see if the microphone is the issue on your iPad. To test it, go to the app store and download Voice Recorder (Free)
Open the app and try recording a voice memo and see if it plays back your voice. If it does not play back your voice then your microphone is having the issue on the iPad and would need a repair. If the playback works, please let me know so we can continue.
