I'm sorry, but the bottom line is that you cannot watch videos on the V55 with a 5th gen iPod. 4th gens work fine though. Apple made this change in their iPods after several aftermarket companies began losing money in their products not selling. In response, iPod apparently teamed up with those companies and installed a chip to "decode" the video content. You can hear audio, but see no video. It stinks, I know. I am just glad that I have a 4th gen video iPod.

However, I am posting here because I am looking through posts and blogs to find out how to fix my V55 as the screen is intermitently going bad.

I've been told that a COMPOSITE APPLE AV cable is needed, plugs into the side of the F55 & you will get video. I just ordered mi cable, it shipped yesterday & I will post as soon as I test it.

My sonic impact technologies sonic impact video 55 can not play my movie I don't not why. I hear my musie but can not see my movie on the screem. what can i do


If you have a later IPod, 6th Gen or later, Apple changed the software and Sonic Impact no longer plays your movies, but audio is fine. You can get around this by purchasing, from Apple, and adapter cable. It is $50 but allows you to charge your Ipod and play your movies on your home TV. The cable is really just a key that unlocks the TV Out setting. If you have and 5th Gen or earlier then you probably just need to go into video setting and select TV OUT : ON. I hope this takes care of your issue.

I have a Sonic Impact V55 Video player and a new 160GB Ipod. Anyway to get the video to work on it?


Absolutely, I have this myself. My 5th Gen works great, but the 160GB would not show movies, just played music. Apple has an adapter cable set that allows you to hook your Ipod to your TV. $50 buy it! You can charge and watch your stuff on your flat screen. It also unlocks your Ipod TV out setting for your Video 55. Set you IPOD video setting to TV Out: on, select your movie and play. Plug in the IPOD nip to your Ipod then set your Ipod into the Video 55. A bit of a pain but works flawlessly. If you select a different movie you have to do this all over again.

Hello: My V55 worked perfectly when I put it away a few months ago... now, I hear the audio from a video, but no picture. Are there settings on the ipod to switch around?


I'm pretty positive that the iPod will 'just work' when you plug it in to a device like that.

Since you said it was working perfectly a few months ago, I would suggest you clean it out as best as you can. Take it apart, blow it out, clean the connectors with isopropyl alcohol (the highest % you can find) and clean the connectors on the ipod too.

Do you perhaps have another device to test the video output on the iPod on? Do you have another iPod you could try in your V55? Try switching things around and see if you can narrow down the problem.

My Video 55 player will not play my videos


You need to switch the video out seeting on the iPod, simple. It is located in Video/video settings/TV Out. Change the setting to "On". Problem solved. However, if you have an iPod that is less than 1 year old, nothing will work, iPod blocked this ability to change to "On" and is set on "Off" permanently.

Playing a video??


Try this if you haven't already. On your iPod select Videos then Video Settings and see what option is selected for TV Out. There are 3 settings On / Off / Ask. If it is OFF click the center button to change to ON or ASK and try to play your video file again. If that does not work take a look at this web site for Sonic Impact. It has a message about changes to iPod software.
