Getting clear audio to televisions from a soundboard

I work at my church and need help with connecting an audio feed from the sanctuary to the fellowship hall where tvs are located. I am running a 1/4" cable out of the soundboard and into a female 1/4" audio cable (red, white, black, and green wires). From there the cable goes about 50 ft to a S-Video/RCA Audio 1 in 4 Amp and splits off to each tv. My problem is there is a major buzzing that overpowers the audio for the services.
The female 1/4" has the red wire soldered to the connector and the black and green soldered as a ground. I found a splice that only had the black connected to the black and the white connected to the white. And for the RCA connector I have the red soldered to the red connector with white as ground and the black soldered to the black connector with green as ground.
Can you help me stop the buzzing noise and bring clear sound to the tvs?

    What about if the buzzing is coming directly from the tv?

    I don't have any regular stations hooked up. Just a s-video and RCA audio.

I think you should buy a video sender. It will take audio from your audio console and send wireless to a free channel to any free TV channel. No cables!

Here's one on ebay:

    Is there any noise when tuning to a regular TV station?

    Can't you try any tv station to see if their audio is clear of noise? If the audio is OK, you can use a video sender because it transmitts as a TV station.

Why does soundboard turn off when connected with Bluetooth. Samsung TV is mounted on wall so I do not want to connect sound bar with wires going up the wall. Thanks

Your sound bar will turn off when there is no audio signal applied. So when your TV is off the soundbar will turn off. You will need to turn the sound bar back on when you turn on the TV

Why does my TV sound only work through my soundbar?

Have you plugged the soundboard into the headphone output and the audio settings are set to mute the speakers? Remove sound bar and go to audio settings. If all else fails reset to factory settings.

I have a mackie 24 channel mixer , I am trying to hook up my monitors. I need help I don't know how to do it. Recently lost our sound tech guy here at the church.

Decide if you want to use the AUX's or the SUB's for your monitors. (usually use the AUX).

Connect TRS cables from the appropriate AUX sends to thee amplifiers you use for your monitors or your powered monitors whichever you have.

Adjust the level using the AUX level controls for each channel to set your minitor mix.

Normally use the PreFader AUX's so monitor levels are set independent of the slide fader positions.

Here is a big hint for you: Search for "Soundboard" or "Soundboard setup". There are good videos there that might be different than your particular board, but there is enough commonality that you will soon be an expert!

I dont have sound on my laptop

A general case might be to take the stereo headphone output of the laptop and feed it a set of left and right line level (not microphone level) inputs to the soundboard. Radio Shack sells a cable that has a typical mini stereo headphone plug on one end and a pair of RCA Phono plugs on the other end. If the soundboard does not have phono jack inputs you will need some type of adapter plug on the ends of the cable phono plugs to match the soundboard's connector.

You then experiment with the laptop's volume control setting (start low) and the soundboard's input level control to get undistorted sound with minimum noise and hum. If you can not get rid of the hum, you probably need to add a ground loop isolation box (also available from Radio Shack, I believe) to reduce or eliminate the hum. __________________

Hello...last night at a show, i plugged up my syst...

Hi, first get a battery and a wire to comfirm if the speakers are still working.
If the speakers work that means one of your connecting cables is bad and it needs to be replaced.

You can just do a general troubleshooting of all the cable for connecting.

Good luck.

We have a problem with what sounds like the mic.

There are so many variables with sound systems, sometimes it's hard to isolate the problem. When I have a problem with the sound system at my church I usually try and force the problem again. In my experience it's usually been the cable that will go bad before the microphone. Try moving the cable around at the end where it plugs into the microphone, if you get any crackling or popping it usually means the cable has a short in it somewhere. Another problem I run into pretty often is that the channel on the soundboard is having problems. Try switching channels and see if the problem comes up again.
