    I've been going through the forums and haven't found any answers.

    I recently noticed that my Tablet has NO sound. It's currently running ICS and in the bottom right corner it shows that a headset is plugged in. The problem with that, is I don't have anything plugged into it. Once I plug a headset in it does have audio, just not through the actual speakers on the tablet itself. I've done the pin reset and the Factory Reset, but still the problem exists. I've done everything I can think of to come up with a solution but I haven't gotten anything yet. Can anyone help me? Anyone else having the same issue or even found a solution... It would help a lot.

    PS. Audio IS turned all the way up. Which is completely useless information for the fact that it's for some reason registering a headset when one doesn't exist.

    Thanks guys.

    On one of the threads, there is a discussion about your sound issue. It appears that the leaf switch where you plug the ear plugs( under the power switch) is not releasing making your tablet think the ear plugs/ headphones are still connected. Get a bright torch/flashlight and look down the hole. A toothpick may help.

    You can also open your ACER up and repair it that way.

    If that doesn't work, try the SoundAbout app to block the invalid headset plug in/out signals.

    I should remember that app. It may be the cause for other sound issues. Or a help.

    turn the power off (completely) and then turn it on again to reboot the system. Worked with my acer iconia tablet with the same issue.

    Didn't work for me even after a factory reset. I installed Sound Manager, enabled the mute profile, then enabled the loud profile, and hey presto, sound again!
