Hi. My iPad started misbehaving. The volume icon keeps coming onto the screen. It is hard to get rid of and I can Increase  volume but not decrease, unless I use mute, then it goes back to zero. The volume bar which appears when I play iview is fine. This is a  very new thing. I have reset the machine three times using the two buttons, but not a factory reset. I have closed all apps. Has anyone else experienced this? Started before I installed the IOS 6 or whatever it is called. Bought the machine last year. Don't live in country of purchase ( Australia ) anymore, but might be there before the first year of ownership is up. I have tried googling, but not much is coming up that applies or has a reported solution.

What a hassle! It sounds like a known issue, according to this discussion. A few suggestions are mentioned but maybe switching on the assistive touch function might help you?

Thank you for replying and finding the discussion. I hadn't seen it. We have come back from a trip to Cambodia with it and suddenly the button works again. Maybe it needed a change of scenery! Or a non- humid environment. It has never been dropped or mishandled and has a wonderful case, so it isn't from denting. Very mysterious.

    How dogs could make children better readers

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
