    Unable to use Skype app with back camera on iPad 2

    There is no problem in initiating a Skype video call while using front camera on my iPad 2. But if I change to back camera, the Skype app will close by itself immediately. How can I fix up this issue?

    This issue can be resolved by doing a hard reset on your iPad. You need to use Home and Sleep/Wake buttons for this purpose. Hold down these buttons together with your fingers for about 10-15 seconds. During that period, a red slider will pop up on the iPad screen. Continue to hold the buttons after ignoring that slider. Release both the buttons from the press when you can see the Apple Logo. By the time you can see the home page, check whether it is possible to use back camera during Skype chat.

    Troubleshoot:

    Use the latest version of Skype on your i Pad.

    Otherwise reset the device

    Open the "settings" option from it.
    Now here select the "General" option.
    Once it opens, you select the "Reset".
    Here you tap "Reset all Settings" on your device.
    This will fix your problem.
