Re: RCA Jack snapped off in my surround sound system
These are not necesarily "generic" parts. Because they correspond to the holes in the back, the actual jack part is somewhat unique to the model of the receiver. If you can post htemodel number I'll try to get you the part number. This should not be an exensive part. Figure on $5-$10 or so.

First you need to look at the back of ur TV to see what sound outputs you have. Typically there will be a red and a white RCA jack called an 'Auxiliary out' you would have to connect these to your stereo amplifier as an input and be all set to crank some TV through your stereo. - If you don't know or can't tell what connections you have you can just snap pic's of the connections on both TV and Stereo or Surround Sound, send them to me in a reply and I'll make some suggestions. Ciao
Without knowing its model number and that of your television this answer has to be very general. Generally speaking you would connect a television to a surround sound system from the television's audio outputs to one of the surround sound system's auxiliary inputs. However most televisions do not have outputs. If your television fortunately has one, then you'd proceed to connect either the red and white RCA audio cable or the digital audio out one depending upon your television's capabilities. The RCA connection though just stereo sound is more reliable as the optical cable's performance can be iffy, and can have a lot of conditions that'll end up with it not working most of the time. The way I have mine set up is I connect all of my devices to the television with a video cable and then separately connect all of them to the surround sound system with an audio cable. Then to hear the sound from the various devices I press my function button on my remote or surround sound system to switch between FM radio, the set top box, and the dvd player.
Hi, the Panasonic t.v. more than likely has more than one kind of output. One of them should be actually lit up with a red glow around the edges, that is the fiber optic digital sound output. It's called a" TOSLINK" connector and is plugged into a matching jack on the surround sounds rear panel. The t.v. may also have a "LINE OUT", " T.V. AUDIO OUT " or " FIXED AUDIO " output this may be in the form of a small 3.5mm stereo headphone jack ( i still call them 1/8 in. plugs) this you can plug into the surround sounds line input on the back panel. If the line input on back of the theater system is rca just use a stereo headphone plug to rca adapter. I hope this helped and thanks for choosing FixYa, good luck-Prodzilla
look at the back of your tv does it have a audio out RCA jack? it should do plug in the surround sound into that using RCA cables
if your tv does not have audio out RCA jack then you can
get a adapter which makes scart connectors turn into RCA jacks get that off ebay
plug the yellow line to the tv and connect the red and white to suround sound but with this there are a few problems sound will only come out when surround sound is turned on and skys sound will never play out the tv if you switch to a PS3 or something it will not play suround sound
yuo best option is the RCA plugs in the back of the tv
because you have not written the model number of the tv or the suround sound i cant help any further
On your jack panel in the rear of the set you should have a location saying Audio Out. They will be Red and White. Plug your RCA cable into those, then plug the other end into your surround sound system under Aux Input, some say TV input. Then switch your stereo to that particular mode and your all done.
Once you have the cable, you stick the headphone plug (3.5 mm stereo mini-phono) into the headphone jack on your Zune, then you insert the red and white RCA jacks into an open input on your surround receiver... most have an auxilliary input jack set on the front of the unit. All you need to do at this point is select the "aux input" for the source on the surround receiver, start your Zune, and make sure the volume on the Zune is somewhere in the 50 - 75% range, and you should be good to go.
I will ilustrate how you do this .. first your magnavox dvd has a cord,has three defferent color of RCA jack yellow ,red and white,yellow is for video,red is for the rigth speaker and white for the left speaker. the video or yellow cord is input to the TV in the VIDEO 1 section the red and white cord is input to your old surround sound, next is your DISH network the output cord is going to input to the VIDEO 2 section in TV.. the video cord color yellow and the red and white to the is going to input in old surround sound, and the out of your old surround is for the speakers...if happens that your sound is one input by a Y RCA jack ,Y jack HAVE ONE INPUT and two output,,,feel free for asking question for further assistance in the future rate me a fixya.....
Since you have a surround sound system, you probably should just bypass the TV's audio.
Connect the red/white plugs from your digital cable box to one of the inputs on your surround sound system but not the Phono input unless the Phono input lists something aside from Phono, like Aux/Phono or CD/Phono.
Connect the S-Video or composite (yellow) video plug from your digital cable box directly to the S-Video or composite (yellow) video jack on your TV.
If your digital cable box does not have a S-Video (4 pins and flat rectangular hole) or Composite (yellow RCA jack) jack and only has the screw/push-on type cable with the pin in it, then leave the remaining connections as-is.
Now switch your surround sound system to the input you connected the red and white plugs to and turn on your TV. You should see picture from the TV, but hear audio from the surround sound system.
You will not get 'surround sound' from this set only stereo sound. The Video/Aux jack at the back of the unit is an input terminal. You can connect the audio part of your TV(if it has a Line Out jack), dvd player or video game console to this input to get the sound through the stereo system. Use a male-to-male RCA cable to make the connection, they are color coded (Red and White). Press the "Video/Aux" button to select the input terminal.
YES check your connections and make sure you have selected the right INPUT signal source on your surround sound just remember RCA cables (yellow red white) goes from digital box,CABLE or SATELLITE OUTput to surround INput from there connect another RCA cable from the OUTPUT of the surround sound to the AV1 Input on the TV make sure AV1 is selected on the TV,if you dont know how just put the TV on channel 3 then press the channels down button and when the TV gets to channel 1 the next channel down from that should be AV1.Also make sure you have selected the right INPUT for the surround sound.
If you are not using RCA jack and just coax follow or you dont have a digital box.Connect the cable from the wall to the INput
on the surround sound the the cable OUT to the tv make sure the surround sound is Looking for a signal from the coax.
