    Okay so I bought the component cable from apple with my iPad 2. Finally got the cable in the mail... (it got lost, long story). Now that I have it, it won't work. Audio will play and the video will stutter. I mean it's not even recognizable. It looks like blurred slides going from top to bottom of the tv over and over. Changed the setting for tv out but just makes the stuttering look different. So I thought it was the cable or the tv, but no it's not. My room mate has an iPhone 3G and it works fine with the cable, we're watching training day right now.

    Anyone know what the issue is? Thanks.

    The easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:-

    Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 or 4.3 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!
    Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.

    Thanks for the reply. I tried it, and it didn't work. :/ I'm going to call AppleCare tomorrow and see if they can help at all.

    I'm having the same issue. Just bought component cable and with new iPad 2 and iPhone 4. No work when on the box says it will.

    Okay, no fix yet. Sadly... Didn't have time to call AppleCare today. However, I thought of something. What if the TV needs to be grounded? I was on tour with a production company for two years and did some presentations with a MacBook and the speakers would have nasty feedback because of the power from the Mac. So I grounded the MacBook, (three prong female Edison to two prong male Edison) Edison cables/plugs are what standard appliances have, tvs, your computer, hair dryer, etc...

    Maybe the iPad is sending out too much power and the tv can't take it and it's distorting the signal? Grounding the tv could help, I would give it a go but I don't have one of those handy at the moment, but its worth a shot.
