Sounds like you might've stuck it in the microphone hole, rather than the light sensor (light sensor isn't a hole you can access). It's unlikely you damaged it, but possible depending on how hard you pushed it in. What you should do, to be sure, is download one of the free Voice record apps on the App store and test recording your voice.I stuck the small pin in there when I was looking for the sim card slot,
Could I have damaged the sensor?
CD? When did iPads go digital?!? I thought there was a good old tape deck in there.Sounds like the microphone to me as well. Is it on the silver frame right next to the earphone jack? Yeah, you could do some damage poking around there.
PS - I was really tempted to make a joke about how I stuck a paperclip end in mine, and my iPad ejected the iOS CD. But I was worried someone would actually try it to get the CD out of their iPad.
PPS - You know the iPad won't boot without that CD, so don't do it!
See that black hole at the top of your iPad on the front? That's your camera, now look closely just above it, that small miscolored circle is the light sensor.OK can someone help me out here?
First time iPad owner. I checked the iPad 3rd Gen user guide and it appears that small hole is for the microphone. I turned on auto-brightness and it just gets slightly brighter even in direct sunlight and shouldn't the iPad display get really bright?
Does anyone have a picture of the ambient light sensor?
