Video player crashed, now just a black screen.
Help! I opened a video file earlier, crashed the player. When I tried to reopen the video app, it just opened a black screen that I couldn't navigate around in. Could only hit the home button and exit out. Tried restarting, didn't do any good. So, I restored the iPad, deleted the video that had crashed it, got everything synched back up, lost some apps in the process. Opened up a different video, worked fine. Then opened another video and the crash happened again. I'd rather not keep restoring the iPad especially since I'm away from home for a week and only have my lap top to restore it from. Any helpful ideas? Thanks.
Connecting to a composite vidoe
The composite video is a cable sold by Apple that connects to the IPAD where you connect your usb cable. One end of the cable connects to your IPAD and the other end connects to your TV or monitor. Actually, I mentioned composite video but should have said component video where the monitor signal is divided up to red, green, blue. There is a composite video cable as well and I would imagine that it will work the same.
The cable is expensive (somewhere around $39), I would see if you could borrow one or possibly the Apple store might have a setup to try one.
Just connect your IPAD to the monitor, tap the video icon. If you have the same problem, you should see your video playing on the monitor and your IPAD should display some of the navigation buttons and the DONE button. Tap on the DONE and that should take you back to the movies list and hopefully resolve your problem.
