Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'll assist you. I'm sorry you're having trouble with it. I need additional info to troubleshoot the issue.
- Do you want to play music files on ipod to get sound through Sony TV speakers?
- What type of connection cable you have for this purpose?
Thanks for the info, does TV work and display home menu when watch other connected video sources such as cable box or DVD etc?
OK, is the ipod cable plugged directly into USB port of TV?
Thats the reason you're not getting any visuals on TV when playback ipod, that video out jack provides video signal to TV to show ipod icon, menu and folders etc to navigate in ipod. Please click following video clip link to see how to connect ipod to TV which will help..

OK, working on it and get back to you in 5 minutes.
Need to use AV cable that has three pins (yellow-red-white), plug the cable into ipod and insert yellow pin into yellow RCA jack at back of TV for video signal, insert red and white pins into related color jacks for audio signals.
Press Input button on TV and select Video-2 (it could be listed as AV or Composite Video etc) to get ipod screen on TV.
Please reply back with the result and if problem resolved then a positive rating to answer would be highly appreciated.
No, red-white pins provide audio signals and yellow contains video signal so all three pins are must to plug into Video-2 jacks at back of TV in related color coded jacks.
Input button is located on top right of TV remote, press it to get video input source list and select correct video input to get ipod video/ audio signals in TV.
Not sure what kind of cable you have for this connection, please check following link to view different cables and reply back which one is similar that you have..
I wish you have had correct AV cable for ipod connection as one has three points at each end - red, yellow and white and the other is a single yellow point at each end wont work for this connection setup.
Please get proper cable from following Apple Store or Amazon link..
It depends what version/ generation ipod you have to get correct AV cable for connection to TV. A simple/ regular AV cable will not work here. I trust my input will help you out.

I understand and it is quite possible you're missing the correct AV cable that was working week ago.
