    It's a new version of the classic.

    When I try to play i-pod videos on the DCP855, I follow all instructions regarding the settings ie; Tv out, etc but after switching all the sttings as they should be the i-pod screen shows the message "TV out enabled please connect to a video accessory"

    I hope that helps..

The newer ipods won't work on an accessory not made by apple, another way to make apple more money by only buying their devices.

read the following article on this

I'm sorry to tell you this, but this is one of those things where you complain heavily to apple about and see what they will do for you or you will have to buy their portable screen/dvd player.

Try to play a music on cd instead of playing dvd. It it plays keep playing until playey got hot and drive off moisture on circuit. Let it cool down then try play dvd. If it can play severy dvd in sequence, then your unit is repaired. Keep using it to avoid condensation inside the dvd player.

Try cleaning the lasers lens with an anti static cleaning wipe. I used " nice'n clean" that I had purchased from Walmart to clean my laptop screen. My dvd player started back playing after gently wiping the laser lens.
