I have an ipod 80GB with video out to the TV My 60GB willplay my pictures as a slide show on the TV, but the 80GB will not. Any Suggestions

You probably need different cables for the different ipod. Go to and click on the support tab; after it loads put the article HT1453 into the search. It will pull up the apple article on this exact kind of issue. It has pictures to show the different kinds of cables needed for the TV OUT feature on ipods. I found it very helpful, hope you do as well. Cheers :)

Locked Ipod Classic 80GB

the switch may be gone but you can try this reset procedure first just to see, first turn on the lock and then turn it off again, next push the menu button and the center button down at the SAME TIME and hold them for at least 50 seconds, then see if it's better

Apple 80gb ipod freezing/computer wont recodnise ipod

Try it on another computer and if it happens its the ipod. Or try restalling itunes with the lates version (7.7.1)
If that doesnt work try using a different program for your ipod eg Jriver media center

Wont work

There is a hold switch somewhere on your ipod. It is a black (or silver) oval switch. I have an ipod classic 80GB and my switch is on the top of my ipod. Since your ipod is different, it might be somewhere else. When you find it, push it to the left and orange should appear on the right side. Your ipod won't be locked anymore.

I hope you didn't mean that you forgot your combination on the screen lock. If you did, sorry I don't know what to do.

I hope this solution was helpful. Please rate it.
