You'd need amplified speakers, like used for ipods and such, as the output on the headphone jack is a lower volume.

How can attach external speakers with RCA plugs or a mini-plug? Is the digital audio output the only connection for audio output? (The model is TC-P50G25)

Well isn't this just a find how do you do!!
It appears that on this set there is no headset or other audio connection other then the optical?

It appears the only way to a traditional RCA audio jack is via a special adapter. See image. Inexpensive not sure of the quality of audio.
The best way would be to purchase a sourround sound speaker amp system with 5 speakers plus base woofer. These surround sound systems are usually have optical connected and for best results this would be my first choice.

Some have wireless back speakers to allow for easier installation.

RCA RT2781BE 1000W Home Theater System with Bluetooth This unit has two optical inputs and one digital input.
This is an inexpensive surround sound speaker system that should connect to your Panasonic TV optical output. Very available and I wanted to give you at least one option. Wires etc are a mess but the surround sound can be amazing. I would check all the reviews if you decide to go with this type of audio system. They can be confusing and in your case you need to have input control of volume with optical.

The following link is the manual for this particular Home theater System.

These audio systems can be very expensive. Less expenesive sorround can still provide great listening results.

Hope this helps?

NO sound on portable DVD player after plugging headphone

One of two situations: Plugged in headsets connect to contacts inside of the female port on the player. If any of the internal connections within the female port are shorted the player switching component will not disconnect and thus the player speakers will not function. Could be dirt, metal particles from the surface of the head phone pins, or just a defective female jack. You may try to insert a small round probe (like a tooth pic etc.) saturated with rubbing alcohol and twirl the probe around to collect any deposits off of the integral connectors. Be careful Not to break the probe off inside of the port. If after this attempt the same problems exist; only a qualified technician can observe the interior of the player for electrical disfunction.

No sound accurian 16-454 tv?

Check if you have a headphone jack it is not damaged or dirty and also in the main menu speakers do not have the option of being turned off.

Lastly if set has inputs for a DVD player hook up and see is sound that way.

No volume on the cable tv setting?

Does the set have a earphone jack? if dirty or damaged it will cut the TV sound out---about the only other possible reason is a audio problem in the TV itself---if possible put ear up to speaker to see if any sound or buzz is heard.

No sounds

if you use headphones does it work? if not it's probably a defective output, if you hear sound with the headphones than it could be the speaker

Hope this helps!

Intermittent audio...picture fine

Does this model have a headphone jack? If so, plug a pair of headphones or external speaker into the jack, turn the volume to an acceptable listening level and see if the problem goes away. If so, the headphone jack may be bad.

Swivel top

It was difficult! But we did find the owners manual online free. You just have to sign up at this site and then you can download it. User manual SONY KV9PT40 - User guide SONY KV9PT40 - Operating instructions SONY KV9PT40 - - Diplodocs
The long and short of it - with the swivel attached to the cabinet still, pull down from the back of the tv and toward you. W had the base off the cabinet so I put the whole thing on the floor, put my feet on the back of the swivel, pulled the tv up and away from me. It took a bit but it finally broke free.
Good luck!

GE TV set has picture but no sound model GE09GP106

If the set has a headphone jack, have you tried plugging in a set of headphones?

If the sound works on the headphones, you may have a bad internal speaker.

If you don't get any sound in the headphones, the audio amplifier may have failed as it drives both the headphone jack & speaker.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
