I have 5 VLAN segments with these IDs
all connected via 5 routers.
I need any PC into VLAN1 to see any PC into the same VALN and all ather 4 VLANs and any PC into other VLANs from 2 to 4 can not see other VLANs. Please help me for that issue.

Think about VLANs as a separate networks, so you need to use trivial ACLs on the routers.

The question is
1. What do you mean saying "PC can/cannot see other PC". Which protocol, service?
2. Do you have a diargram how your 5 routers interconnected?

1. i mean that i want PCs into VLAN1 can ping through TCP/IP to all other VLANs while any PC into VLANs from 2 to 5 can only ping to PCs which connected with its VLAN segment (dont ping to other PCs into other VLANs).
2. routers are connected with each other directly through fiper optic backbone while every router connected to its VLAN segment through gigaspeed copper UTP cables.

1. It will be natural that if a PC from VLAN 1 can ping another PC from VLAN 2, that PC2 will be able to ping PC1 unless you filter by type of icmp.

2. You need to create an access lists and apply to the IP interfaces


ip access-list extended FILTER-IN
 remark block ping requests
 deny icmp any echo
 remark block any TCP connection attempts
 deny tcp any syn
 remark permit everything alse
 permit ip any any

apply this to IP interface of the VLAN1 router in inbound direction

VLAN 2 and all other

ip access-list extended FILTER-IN
 remark permit all from VLAN1 and deny everything else
 permit ip

ip access-list extended FILTER-OUT
 remark permit all to VLAN1 and deny everything else
 permit ip

Apply this filter to IP interfaces of routers 2-5 replacing local ip addresses in both directions.

Thanks tvman  od.
I have tried to use static route into all routers and disable RIP with this configuration:
VLAN1 Router:  gateway  gateway  gateway  gateway  gateway

VLAN2 Router:  gateway  gateway

VLAN3 Router:  gateway  gateway

VLAN4 Router:  gateway  gateway

VLAN5 Router:  gateway  gateway

Did the above configuration useful into my case while every VLAN become isolated from others except VLAN1?

I'm not really getting how did you connect your routers. Can you post configuration of VLAN1 router and a simple diagram how do you have it connected? In order to route something, the routers need to have an interface in the same network, from you config VLAN1 router has interface in 1,2,3,4,5th networks. If there is no IP, you send it to local interface by name, but it's not possible for interfaces with shared medea like ethernet.
