Problem connecting cable wires for Sony PFM-42B2 42 in. Plasma TV

We just purchased the above tv 2nd hand. We are having problems hooking the tv up to cable and finding how to turn on the volume. We have normal cable wires of red, yellow and white. The tv connections aren't the same colors. Do we need to buy special cable wires to connect to tv. We have the remote and there is no volume button on the remote. We have no clue how the volume works. Please help. Thanks

This is a monitor, not a TV. You need a VGA, SVideo or composite connection for video. There are S-video modulators to convert your RCA signal to S-video. About $30 at Radio Shack or Best Buy.The audio is pass through only. You must have external speakers with an outside power source. If you don't have an amplifier for outside audio you can use a cheap set of computer speakers.

I have this screen and my version does not include audio - I need to connect to an external amplifier, in my case my home theater.

I hooked it up the way the manual said and it doesnt work


Try whatever applies best below, in order...

Cable Box optical Digital Audio to Digital Audio In. (This brings TV-related multi-channel and normal audio into the receiver so you can hear it over the speakers. Turn TV volume OFF.

The cable box probably has a pair of stereo Audio Out RCA jacks. Run those directly to the TV so you can watch and hear cable programming over the TV's speakers without having to turn the system on. Turn TV volume UP.

Depending on your TV's Video In capabilities, use the Cable Box HDMI, Component (Red, Blue and Green), or Composite Video (single Yellow associated with the Audio Out) directly attached to the TV.

Too loud


I am assuming you do not have a "surround sound" system hooked up to your digital cable box, and that you have your TV volume turned down all the way and have not yet tried to adjust the volume on your new digital cable box. It might be worth a try to unplug your TV for about 15 seconds and try again. If the above is true and you can still not lower the volume through the cable box or the TV set, then I would have the cable people stop by to check it out.
