All depends what cables you are using.if you are using hdmi it could be that the hdmi format is not supported because it has to be hdmi 2.0 and yes thier is a difference.
If you are using componet cables make sure they are plugged into the correct inputs.
if you are using av cables they could be broke.
if none of these help with the problem then i don't have an anwser for you.

Why wont my iPod turn on?


Try plugging the Ipod into a charger and see if anything appears. If a charging symbol does not show up try next step.
If charging symbol doesn't show up hold down the Power Button and the Home Button at the same time for A FULL 30 seconds! The apple logo should show up. If it does not move to the next step.
If nothing shows up on the phone at this point try moving the silence button up and down, do you get a vibration when you change the button to silence? If so it means that your screen is just not displaying the image and you need a new LCD if it does not make a vibration when you move the silence button after trying all of the above steps it is likely that the phone is ruined or something is disconnected on the interior.

Sounds like a processor error. Try CPR in NYC. They usually have a 1-3 day turnaround time, and are pretty cost effective. You can easily ship them your unit. They repair playstations, xboxes, etc. Fast and cheaper than the manufacturer.

Hope it helps!

Calibrating wont work.. i want to reset it


When you turn on the ds, go into settings (the center icon at the bottom), the press the yellow icon. I assume you got to that part.
Now you have to tap the calibration points; as you touch them, they should move to the next point (three altogether). Does that happen?
Next, you should be able to test it at four points. They will turn blue when you touch them. Does that happen?
If there is no response when you do this, your digitizer may be faulty.
The DS will reset to factory if you remove the battery. You need a small phillips screwdriver for that, on the bottom of the DS.
