Re: Ipod will not play properly after connected to Vm9512
Well, the screen issue you are describing with the ipod sounds like the ipod's clickwheel is malfunctioning. A malfunctioning clickwheel will allow you to reset the ipod, but not actually make selections. At this point, you can either replace the clickwheel or if your ipod is under warranty, take it in for service.
*I am assuming that you are actually resetting the ipod correctly. For example, when reset, after bootup, the ipod will ask you to select a language. If you are not getting to that screen when you "reset" it, then you are likely doing it incorrectly. If that is the case, I'd suggest checking your HOLD button before suspecting a bad clickwheel. Since there are slightly different procedures for resetting ipods depending on model and generation, I'd suggest doing a search online (or going to Apple's website) for instructions on how to reset your particular model. Note that ipod generation can be easily found printed on the back case of the ipod.

Which model ipod ??
In keeping with Apple's goal to make user-friendly,
streamlined products, the designers of the iPod built in easy-to-use reset
functions into each iPod model.
Resetting the iPod is similar to rebooting a computer as all
songs and data stored on the device stay there, and only temporary information
(such as which song is playing) gets reset.
Follow these steps to reset an iPod.
Toggle the "Hold" switch to the "On" position, then
The "Hold" switch is the small sliding switch on
the top of the iPod.
Move it to the "On" position to show an orange
rectangle. Move it back to the "Off" position to show a white
Hold the "Menu" and "Center" buttons.
Press the 2 buttons at the same time for between 8 and 10
Your screen will go blank and then boot up with a dark Apple
The icon eventually turns bright and brings you back to your
main menu once the reset is complete.
Check your iPod to make sure it plays properly. If the iPod
still does not work repeat the reset process.
Scroll Wheel and Touch Wheel iPods
Move the "Hold" switch from "On" to
Press the "Play/Pause" button and the
"Menu" button at the same time.
Press both buttons together for approximately 6 to 8
This initiates the self-running reset process.
Make sure the reset was successful.
If problems persist you may need to perform the reset
process once again. iPod Nano
Move the on-off switch to the "Off" position that
shows the green strip.
Leave the iPod Nano in this position for 5 seconds.
Move the switch back to the "On" position.
Use your iPod Nano to
make sure the reset worked properly and all your music is intact.
Turn off your iPod by holding
down the "Play/Pause" button for two or three seconds. The screen
should go blank, and your iPod will remain off until you turn it back on
again by holding down the "Play/Pause" button.2 Let your iPod go to sleep. When
an iPod isn't used for two or three minutes, it automatically goes into
"sleep" mode. The screen will go black until you touch any of the
controls. Sleep mode uses considerably less battery power.
you need to restore your ipod touch by connecting it to your computer and clicking restore. make sure you have backed up your ipod touch before you do this or you will lose everything on your ipod touch.
You should not plug the ipod to pc while it is playing because it is switches from the playing mode to sync and charging mode you can not play and use the ipod while it is connected with the software without ejecting it from itunes. Do a reset by pressing and holding the center and menu buttons at the same time until the screen goes back and apple logo pops up. This should reset your ipod and fix the problem.
First, make sure the lock slider is in the proper position. I know, obvious, but you'd be surprised how often this happens.
Next, slide the lock slider to locked and then back. Then press and hold the Menu and Select (center) button for 6-8 seconds. Try a couple times if it doesn't work the first time. The ipod should reset and work.
If that didn't work, you can reset your ipod. But first, try connecting the ipod to your computer and see if it goes into sync mode. If so, wait for iTunes to load and then eject your ipod in iTunes and see if it works again.
To reset your ipod, slide the lock slider to locked and then back. Next hold the Play/Pause Button and the Menu button for 6-8 seconds. You may have to try this a couple times. The ipod should reset.
The last thing to do is to let your ipod discharge completely by leaving it at the frozen screen. Once your ipod is out of battery, reconnect it to you computer or a power adapter and let it charge. Then try to access it again or repeat the steps above.
Hi, Whatever you do, do not disconnect it when it is like that. Do a reset (hold the menu and play buttons until the screen goes black and then quickly disconnect it from the computer.
what you do now depends on what the iPod does after you disconnect if from the computer. If the screen comes on, then you are OK. If it comes back to the do not disconnect screen, do a reset again, and this time when the screen goes black, quickly hold down the play/pause key and the middle key. Hold them until you see a check mark and the words, 'disk mode'. Connect it to your computer while it is like this and restore it. Hope that helps.
hold the center button and the menu button until the screen goes black. then hold center and play until the screen goes white and says "OK to disconnect". The ipod has now been forced into disk mode and should now sync. Once you have it connected to itunes, try restoring the ipod to fix the problem forever. If the ipod still will not sync in disk mode, try some of the USB tests in diagnostic mode (info here)
