IPod Classic won't play video with AV Component Cable

I have a similar issue and contacted Apple about it. My wife's iPod Nano plays video just fine. Apple had me check a couple of the TV settings on the iPOD - make sure you have it as NTSC.

We reinstalled all the software (using Restore option in iTunes). It turns out the issue might be with the input jack at the bottom of the iPOD. I am taking it to Apple store tomorrow to see if they can resolve it.

I have the exact same problem, having previously tried the component cables. I called tech support who stated that my ipod classic must have some sort of hardware malfunction when otherwise fully functional. I can get sound through the RCA cables, but no video. What gives?

    Jensen vm9412 and ipod classic


    The newer generation iPods don't always work with the iPod connection kits in a lot of the car stereos. Some of the problem is due to the fact that the new generation iPods have been changed and the stereos were manufactured before the players were released so they are not compatible.
    I bought my girlfriend a Pioneer car stereo with an iPod control cable, and it works fine with her Nano (not the new generation Nano) and it works with my iPod Photo 60 GB but it does not work with my iPhone 2G and I read that it is not compatible with the new Nanos or the Classics. Check with Jensen to see if the model you have is compatible with the Classic and see if there is a solution to the issue. It may not be compatible with the new video portion of the Classic firmware.

    Cheers

    Ipod nano


    Is this a new nano (3G)?  If so, the only way to output videos is by purchasing a new Apple component or composite cable.  They are $49.  No other way exists apart from connecting it to your computer to play videos outside of the ipod itself.

    IPod 160 Classic


    From an Amazon Post: 5 of 6 people found the following review helpful: stars-3-0._v47082372_.gif An iPod Classic 160gb CAN BE made to work with one of these units, December 22, 2007 By Technophile "Technophile" (Detroit, MI USA) - See all my reviewsThere is a way to make the iPod Classic 160 gb work with the Philips line of Portable DVDs with iPod docking but its awkward and requires the purchase of Apple's Composite AV Cable ($50). Apple installed in the 6th generation iPods what amounts to an electronic lock. When you set the player up to send out video externally it will ask you to "Please Connect Video Accessory". It's looking for the sixth generation Apple Composite AV Cable plug. Somewhere embedded in the plug's configuration is the key to the lock that the player is looking for. Once you insert this plug the movie you have selected will begin to play and all you have to do then is remove the cable and insert the unit into the dock and you should see your video displayed. As i said before, this is an awkward work around and should you go back to the main menu to select a different movie you will have to perform these steps again. For those of you (like me) who were stuck with one of these units, this work around just might make you feel a little better about your purchase. Good Luck!!!!
