Do you want to play music files on ipod to get sound through Sony TV speakers? Yes- What type of connection cable you have for this purpose? I don't know - the ones that came with tv. this function has worked previously - we've just relocated. It plays music but you can't see the music menu, albums , songs etc
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 2 years ago

Thanks for the info, does TV work and display home menu when watch other connected video sources such as cable box or DVD etc?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
menu down the bottom of the screen. We use to be able to see one across the middle of the screen and when you got to the music symbol - click on it and then the Ipod icon would pop up - can't see this now
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
can see the menu across the middle of screen when go through 'dvd rec' but no ipod - use to go through 'home theatre' but home doesn't work thru that now.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 2 years ago

OK, is the ipod cable plugged directly into USB port of TV?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
USB cord plugged in from ipod dock to tv. There is another connection point on ipod port called 'video out' which is yellow. there is nothing connected to this (and I don't think there was previously)
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
also of note is that on the screen of the ipod it says 'connected' & has an image of a USB. Previously you would see the list of albums, tracks on ipod
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 2 years ago

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..

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.

Thanks.

ok, which is the input button on tv ?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
its ok to just insert the yellow point into ipod dock & leave the red & white hanging?
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 2 years ago

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.

TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 2 years ago

none of these. I have two - one has three points at each end - red, yellow and white and the other is a single yellow point at each end. At this point I just want the music
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 2 years ago

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..

http://www.apple.com/shop/product/MC748AM/A/apple-composite-av-cable

http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-AV-Cable-iPod-4G/dp/B000E2ASCE

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. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.

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