Pixellated video (itunes not youtube) on ipod touch

*cries* why is my iPod Touch doing this? It’s sort of pixellated and colored red/blue when it should be black. So this video is Rihanna singing Umbrella – a black and white video. But you can see – her dark hair is now blue and red. Anything in black seems to be affected. Plus there is a slippage – the video shifts 1/2 an inch to the right and the thing that should be the most-right on the screen is now the most left. Very disconcerting wraparound effect. Anyone know what’s causing it – btw that is a downloaded iTunes video, not crappy wifi YouTube connection. I did a complete scrub and restart – it was fine for about 10 minutes. When I tried the video again, an hour or so later, it was corrupted. Not only that video but all videos. Fotos seem to be fine though.

These people seem to have the same error on MacRumours. Any ideas? C’mon, one of you lot has to be a smartypants…

EDIT/FIX: Ok what seems to be the issue is that I have been putting my iPod Touch to sleep, not restarting it. Or else doing a complete wipe. This from the Apple site. “To turn it off, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPod touch.” Worked for me. Videos working now…. off to bed with me so I can watch vids and listen to music. ‘night. 🙂

  1. Thanks for sharing – will probably save many of us several anxious moments. I had no idea there was a way to turn it off!!

    p.s. How about sharing some more tips. For example, when typing text, how do you accept a predictive text suggestion?? I just cant figure that out.


  2. Mike,

    It took me the better part of an hour thinking about the same thing with the predictive type on my iPhone. So far all I can figure is that once the predicted word shows (and assuming its that one you want) you just hit space bar and it stays as you start typing the next word. Almost too easy, but hey that’s apple right?

    I could be wrong but it seems to work for me….

  3. ahh the curse of early adoption. no doubt apple will say it’s a feature 😉

    weird that sleep vs. turning it off can cause/avoid problems that severe! hopefully a firmware update will sort it out.

  4. Bingo! Haven’t slept, eaten or washed, all in aid of finding how to use predictive text. From page 18 of the user guide: To use the suggest correction, type a space, punctuation mark or return character.
    Apparently if you want to reject it, keep typing the word you DO want, then tap that new word – this will add it to the dictionary.

    You owe me. 🙂

  5. You don’t have to worry about that because you can buy new gadget. I know its expensive but remember there are no such thing in this world that last. Just accept the reality of it.
