Unable to connect ipad to tv with digital av adapter

The av adapter and the HDMI adapter can be used with iPad 2 and up. Most of the accessories only can be used with the iPad 2 and up. From the iPad 4 you only can use the lightening accessories.
Don't try other brands, because they never guaranty compatibility. I used my HDMI connector with my iPad 2 and works great. Since I do have Apple TV and a time machine I don't need any cable to view video on my tv.

I have a 120 gig classic ipod, and i have 3 white

It is probably a short in the connector inside the unit going from the screen to the circuit board. You can replace the screen yourself, just have to do some google searching. Also, if you wanted to connect your Ipod to a TV, you can plug an RCA cable into the sound port. You have to have the cable that has three prongs on one end (yellow for video, red & white for sound), the other end of this cable is a 3.5" (headphone) audio plug. Classic iPods export video data from the sound headphone jack!

How to use ipod to watch videos out on tv

There is a cable you can purchase that will allow playback with the newer models of iPod. You can check it out here:
