I know this is an old thread but sometimes it's a simple thing of changing lock button on upper right side of iPad to be " mute" . Go to settings, general and scroll down to lock button either lock rotation or mute. Select mute

Hi, just trying to help. Have u read this?

Is this of any help? Do you have the same problems as described. If it is a faulty sensor then you will need to have a hot air reflow station to do the repair. Better to go in an Apple store.
