Question about Sony DAV-IS10 System

26 Answers

Can't hear TV sound through system speakers

Hi, I have a Sony Bravia TV (KDL 20S2030) and a Sony Home Cinema System (DAV IS50) connected to each other through a HDMI cable and also an audio cord (a red plug and white plug at each end of the cord), but I can't get any sound to come through the cinema system speakers when watching a tv programme. I have set the function on the home cinema system to "TV" as per the Sony instruction manual, but nothing. The manual says the "System Audio Control" function will activate automatically so that the tv programme sound is played through the cinema speakers, but this doesn't happen. Hope someone can help! Thanks.

    Thanks masterexpert. Yes, the wiring connections are correct. I am not sure what is meant by connecting the external dvd player to the unit. The home cinema unit is the dvd player/cd player. This unit connects to the subwoofer speaker, and the subwoofer speaker connects to the 5 golfball size speakers. The TV connects to the home cinema unit with a HDMI cable and RCA audio cord. Any further ideas!

  • enph Dec 10, 2008

    Thanks Ginko, I have tried this but no luck...

  • enph Dec 10, 2008

    Hi Pablocsa, yes the connections are definitely correct, exactly as per the manual. I have tried switching the cord around to different inputs both on the cinema unit and the tv just in case, but still no sound through the cineam speakers.

  • enph Dec 10, 2008

    Hello, yes the speakers do work, excellent when playing a dvd and cd. Have tried unplugging and then reconnecting, all various connection combinations beside the "proper" connection as per the manual but no luck.

  • enph Dec 10, 2008

    Thanks Welcomejee, yes this is the exact connection I already have, as advised by the Sony manual. What am I doing wrong! Keep the solutions coming!

  • enph Dec 10, 2008

    Hi, yes the connections are correct and the menu setup both for the TV and Cinema System is correct.

  • enph Dec 10, 2008

    Yes, mute is off

  • enph Dec 10, 2008

    Thanks Steve, just tried this, and also unplugging and replugging the red/white plugs at the same time but no luck

  • enph Dec 10, 2008

    Thanks, yes this is the connection I have set up already.

  • enph Dec 10, 2008

    Hi, yes have just turned off both the TV and cinema system for five minutes. I am not sure what you mean by AUX mode on my tv?

  • enph Dec 10, 2008

    Thanks Jayedinger, the cinema system manual advises to connect the tv and cinema system with both an HDMI cable and audio cord to listen to tv sound through the cinema speakers.Having said that, I have tried using only the audio cord and only the HDMI cable. My TV doesn't have digital optical output, what exactly is a receiver - this is different to the cinema system unit? If so, I am not using a receiver.

  • enph Dec 10, 2008

    Thanks Carl, yes I have tested the cord on another set up in my living room and it does work. The TV manual does not mention any special setting that needs to be changed when connecting the audio cord to the sockets. I have scrolled through the menu setup and changed settings etc but no luck. Referring to my initial post, the cinema system says that "System Audio Control" function should automatically activate but this doesn't happen - does anyone know about this? Thanks

  • enph Dec 10, 2008

    Thanks, yes have tried the various functions on the cinema system. I think I must be doing something fundamentally wrong that I just can't see.....

  • enph Dec 11, 2008

    sorry, I have just followed this procedure but still no sound

  • enph Dec 11, 2008

    just tried this solution, still nothing....

  • enph Dec 11, 2008

    This could be the solution...... The system is 5.1. The cinema system has digital input, but not the TV....

  • enph Dec 11, 2008

    This could be the solution...... The system is 5.1. The cinema system has digital input, but not the TV....

  • enph Dec 11, 2008

    Thanks leecom, the audio settings in the Menu on the TV are Standard, Dynamic, BBE ViVA and Dolby Vurtual, but no cinema settings....

  • enph Dec 11, 2008

    Hi Techgurus, I don't think there is an option to adjust the audio output on the TV. There are two are Menu controls. There is a Menu control on the TV accessed by using the Menu key on the TV remote control. The audio settings I can adjust are: Sound Effect (Dynamic, Standard, BBE ViVA, Dolby Virtual, Off); Treble; Bass; Balance; Reset; Dual Sound (Stereo, Mono); Auto Volume (On, Off); TV Speakers (On, Off).

    There is also a Menu control accessed using the Menu key on the Cinema remote control.The function on the cinema system needs to be set to DVD to access this and the input on the TV set to HDMI, and then the menu settings appear on the TV screen. Again there are several audio settings as follows: Volume Limit (three settings); YCBCR/RGB(HDMI)(one or the other); Audio(HDMI)(On, Off); Audio DRC (On, Off).

  • enph Dec 11, 2008

    Hi everyone,



    Thanks for all your help so far, below is a link to the instruction manual for my TV - see page 30 and 31 for the connections on the back of my TV. Hopefully this will help you...



    http://pdf.crse.com/manuals/2685333141.p...



    What do you think?







  • enph Dec 11, 2008

    Thanks davespcr. I don't have a satellite or cable box, just the TV and the home cinema system connected with each other with the HDMI cable and the red/white plug audio cord. The home cinema system manual says that both these connections are required to hear tv sound through the cinema system speakers. Could you have a look at the tv manual link I posted earlier - i'm coming to the conclusion my tv doesn;t actually have audio output jacks, just audio input jacks - am I right? Thanks

  • enph Dec 11, 2008

    Hi techgurus, yes I have the red/white plugs connected to the L & R jacks as per set up F. I have also tried them in the L & R jacks as per setup F. I always have the HDMI cable plugged in, but have tried it without just in case.

  • enph Dec 11, 2008

    sorry, meant setup E above

  • enph Dec 12, 2008

    Thanks for your continued help Jayedinger. I think you asked me to start fresh with you yesterday so here is the set up I have. The 5 golf ball speakers are wired - they plug into the subwoofer. The subwoofer has a scart connection into which the cinema system plugs. The cinema system is connected to the TV with an HDMI cable, and also red/white plugs which is the connection I have the problem with. The manuals say that I need both these connections for me to hear tv programme sound through the cinema system speakers. I have tried just one or the other but no luck. The speakers are definitely wired correctly, I can play dvds fine using only the HDMI cable. I am pretty sure the red/white jacks on the cinema system are fine. With the red/white plugs in the cinema system but not the TV, if I touch the bare plug connections you can hear that low buzzing noise on all the cinema speakers (you know what I mean?) I think the problem may be with the red/white jacks on the TV. If I plug the red/white plugs into the TV red/white jacks (but not the cinema system) the sound doesn't cut out on the TV speakers. I would really appreciate if you could have a look at the link I posted earlier to my Sony TV manual. I think it is possible that the TV only has audio IN plugs but I don't know enough abot this sort of stuff to be sure. I have tried set up E and F as illustrated on page 31 of the manual.

  • enph Dec 12, 2008

    As per my last post, I think you may be right Tech 610 - can anyone else confirm this by looking at the TV manual link I posted earlier? If the TV has no audio outputs, is there anyway I can get TV sound to come through the cinema speakers? I just have the TV and the cinema system and that's it - no other components.

  • enph Dec 12, 2008

    Thanks Welcomejee, shaotim and tech 48 - you've all solved the problem! The TV doesn't have audio output from the red/white jacks I have been using. Welcomejee, I have just found an old Scart Plug from my old dvd player. It has a scart plug at one end and three (black/red/yellow) plugs at the other. I have plugged the scart into the TV and just the red and black plugs into the red/white jacks of the home cinema system and at last I have sound from the TV playing through the cinema speakers! Perhaps you could post your solution again and I can formally accept it. Should I invest in a gold plated version of this type of scart lead to get the best transfer of sound - does it make a noticeable difference? Now that I know I can get audio out of the TV through the scart plug is there an optimum way of doing this to hook up to the home cinema system or is the suggestion you have made the only one? Thanks!

  • enph Dec 12, 2008

    Thanks Welcomejee and to everybody else's input.

Besides the SCART 2 connection, the only audio output on your TV is the headphone jack on the side of the TV. You can get a cord that will adapt that headphone jack to the RCA cable to run into the surround system. It is called a "mini-stereo to RCA" cord. One end plugs into the headphone jack and the other goes to the surround system on one of the RCA inputs.

This will get you the sound from the TV out to the surround system.

Otherwise you must use one of the SCART connectors to output the audio from the TV.

    The gold plated connectors are better but you will probably not hear any difference. It is mostly used for longevity because they do not get oxidized over time. If the sound is good, there is no need for the more expensive gold plated connector.

I was looking t your tv manual. This tv does not have an audio output that uses RCA jacks. However, you can buy a headphone to rca jack at radio shack for five bucks. Plug the RCA into it, the little jack converter into the headphone jack on the side of te tv. Then set the home theater to tv/video.....but make sure the volume on the TV is down LOW, you do not want to over drive the inputs on the home theater system. This is the best solution I can find thus far, still looking at the manual though and that is the only solution I see.

    its a small little adapter that has a headphone plug at one end an RCA inputs on the other. click on this link here.

  • Justin Washburn Dec 12, 2008

    Oh and the other end of the RCAs go to the input on the home theater system. If the volume on the tv is too high the volume on the cinema system wil be very sensitive, it only needs a signal to amplify, once you get the volume on the tv right youll be able to turn the volume up on cinema system like normal, this will also most likely cut the sounds from the tv spakers which is normal when headphones are plugged in.

  • Justin Washburn Dec 12, 2008

    Oh and HDMI has sound capbiility but they are inputs on the tv only, you wont be able to get sound out, least that what the manual says.

  • Justin Washburn Dec 12, 2008

    I use this same cable on my home theater system and I can hook my MP3 player to it and listen to my digital media in glorious surround sound, also use to hook my playstation 3 to my computer speakers because I get 1080P on my computer lcd monitor.

  • Justin Washburn Dec 12, 2008

    Gold plating for the sound input/output really isnt goin to make a very noticable difference,

Have you disable the internal speakers?
See page # 22 for TV speakers to turn them OFF to enable the audio to be listened through the external sound devices.

  • Jaime Hernandez Dec 12, 2008

    If you use a cable like the one from this link, you should be able to connected to the earphones jack and from there to the Sony Home Cinema System (DAV IS50) and the volume can be control with the TV's remote control.

I have a suggestion I think will help, so let me describe how my system (also a Sony) is set up. You say your other devices work fine, so I think the problem is in the 'routing' of the incoming signal (satellite and/or cable).
First, don't change any connections to DVD or CD players or any other device that works. On the back of your satellite or cable box you should see 'Audio Out' (red & white). Remove the red & white wires (from home theater to TV) and connect one end to these Audio Out jacks. Plug the other end into the red and white 'Input' jacks on the back of the home theater unit (this is your 'receiver'). On my home theater I use the ''video 2' jacks, but if you have one labeled TV or Aux those should also work (as long as nothing else is plugged into them). Next, make sure the Home theater's setting is set to the same setting as where you connected the red & white wires (example: on mine, to hear the the TV, my home theater must be set on 'video 2' as that is where the satellite box's red & white wires are connected.
You really shouldn't need any audio connection from the TV to the Home Theater, since you'll only be using the home theater's (not the TV's) speakers anyway. You can also run your Digital Video Cable directly from the satellite or Cable box directly to the TV as there's really no need for the video signal to run through the Home Theater Unit (this will only lessen the picture quality). If this doesn't solve your problem, please let me know. Good Luck!

Try the RCA (red and white) cables into the L-------R which is to the right of Y, PB/CB, and PR/C and switch the HDMI to DVD port and turn the tuner to DVD... Try new cables if nothing else works, but HDMI carries AUDIO so that is all you should really need unless you are using DVI... If you are using an RCA cable as a Digital Audio COAX you will need to make sure you are plugging each end into a COAX input/output and you should use a Digial Cable (some get COAX and RCA confused).

I would try using a fiber optic audio cable out into your reciever to elminate all those red and white plugs and anything that is hooked up to your tv should come out of your cinema system. This is how i have my Tv and Surround sound hooked up.

Have you tried to plug something else in that same jack to verify that it is not a bad input? Try an external DVD player and see if the audio will come through. If not it is a bad audio jack. This happens and if it with return policy then exchange it.

  • Joe Lepe Dec 11, 2008

    Did you try to connect another input device in that same jack instad of the tv?



  • Joe Lepe Dec 12, 2008

    According to the manual you posted there is not output jacks. You will have to go from each component directly to your Sony system rather than through the TV.

Till where have you reached in connecting and getting sounds through the speakers.something must be really getting wrong get a user manual from the servicenter of the device to check out the exact connections.other wise just interchaging the connections from one socket to another is the other option any of which is the right socket will produce the proper sound.it could also be possible that trhe connections will be proper but the wires must be getting cut somewhere in the system so no sound from the speakers.

    Try setting the tv's Audio Output to "Fixed" it's probably set on "Variable" Audio Out now. That way the tv's remote will be able to control the volume JUST ON THE TV & you can use the Receiver's remote to control the volume on the receiver. 

    VARIABLE AUDIO OUT:
    Volume Level that you set the tv to is sent to the receiver.
    The tv's remote also can be used to control the volume on the receiver. 

    FIXED AUDIO OUT:
    The tv has no control of the volume level to the receiver. 
    Only the receiver's remote will control the volume level.

    If the Audio Outputs can't be changed in the menu system & the set has 2 sets of Audio Outputs use the ones that are labeled "Monitor Out" instead of "Audio Out"

    MONITOR OUT = "FIXED AUDIO"
    AUDIO OUT = "VARIABLE AUDIO"In the "Variable" position the sound is being raised & lowered to the TV's speakers & to the Audio Outputs to the Receiver. In the "Fixed" position it's sending the Receiver a fixed volume level just as if you hooked a VCR's Audio Outs directly to a receiver. The Fixed Output is always the better output to use but when you do you lose the ability to use the TV's Remote to control the volume unless the TV's Remote it's a Universal one that will also control the volume on the Receiver directly.In the "Variable" position the sound is being raised & lowered to the TV's speakers & to the Audio Outputs to the Receiver.

In the audio menu of the TV you should be able to mess with the settings, it sounds like you have cinema sound connected to the bravia, so go into the audio settings on the TV and set it to 5.1 or 6.1 surround sound (make sure that the "surround" sound is activated)

kind regards

Wow, what a lot of solutions! There are a couple of things I didn't see here yet:
1) Have you proved to yourself that the cable with the red and white ends on it works somewhere else?

2) Does your TV have to have some setting changed in order to route audio to the plug your trying to connect to?

Carl

    Going thru the Sony tutorial I found one last thing to look at. You have to have turned the volume up on the TV before turning the speakers to off in the menu, otherwise there isn't any sound out to the audio jacks.

Not exactly sure why you're using both HDMI and plain red/white a/v. HDMI does both audio and video in the same cable. If you have the hdmi cable connected fromTV to cinema system, then whatever you're playing in the cinema system will use the tv speakers and sound. Unless you're forwarding the sound from the HDMI to a receiver. What I'd suggest is getting a digital audio cable (coax or optical) and running that from the cinema system to the receiver for true 5.1.

Posted on Dec 10, 2008

  • Jason Edinger Dec 12, 2008

    Just out of curiosity, have you tried using a Component cable (red/green/blue) for video and then an optical or coax cable for sound?

    I may end up suggesting some things that have already been done. Just let me know if you've done them already; it's hard to keep up with this huge thread.

    I went on sony's website and got a 360 view of your system.  Looks like it does both hdmi and component and both optical and coax audio.Looks like the speakers are wired. I haven't read the entirety of this thread, but did you verify the wires are in correctly, + and -? The wire w/the black tape is the - side.
    Is the red/white audio cable connected to the audio OUT of the TV?

    Just thinking out loud now.  red/white is for when you are watching a tv show and instead of using the tv speaker itself you want to have the sound through the 5.1, so you plug in the red/white to the tv out then in to the back of the system. So, while the tv is on and sound is coming out, plug in the cable to the tv and only the tv. The sound should cut out. Then go ahead and connect to the back of the unit to the audio in. With this set up, cycle through the inputs until you hear something. If you don't hear anything, I'd say the red/white jacks on the cinema system are dead. I've seen that happen before. Since this seems like it's a new system for you, get a technician out there to test it. If dead, have it replaced.

  • Jason Edinger Dec 12, 2008

    I cannot tell from the picture, but if the tv doesn't say 'Audio IN', then it's not an Audio IN. That said you may not have an input jacks. That sounds stupid to me, but you never know.

    If it is an OUT port, and the cable plugged in doesn't do anything, the jack might be dead. I'd get a tech out to test it if still under warranty.

If you pressed ON set it to OFF.

It will only be 2 channel stereo though and that is the most you can expect back down the optical link from the TV.
Unfortunately the 'all-in-one' systems like your sony do sacrifice something to get to the low price and that is usually external connection options

    after hooking up properly, as you did already, you need to select proper input in home cinema system to have tv sound in speakers.

    Get help of nearby tech person to hook up system properly as you have tried all options given on internet and still no joy.

    one thing more, confirm that TV Audio Out (monitor out) terminals has output by connecting any hifi system or receiver. If TV gives sound out on monitor out terminals then there is no way to have no sound in home cinema system.

    You need SCART to RCA connector / adapter to get Monitor Audio Out from TV and hook Red-White wires in it coming from Cinema system.

Make sure the speakers do work fisrt of all, and then try repluging the cables, make sure they are connected in the right spot, or try them in a different spot, cant fail, dont worry you'll get it.

What do you think?

  • Alan R
    Alan R Dec 10, 2008

    Well, now that you have plugged everything in, Try trunning your TV and Cinema system both off for a min. Then turn them both back on and try any possible mode until you hear sound. Good luck

  • Alan R
    Alan R Dec 10, 2008

    Im sorry I meant to say select AUX mode from your Sony system, or try any of the other modes until you find the one that makes the speakers work with your tv

  • Alan R
    Alan R Dec 10, 2008

    Haha i think i got it, it looks realy simple though.

    1. Well first thing is like i said you must have both tv and systems off , and disconnect system from A/C power supply

    2. Make sure you connect Red and White cables on the back of the TV where it says "Audio Out(Var/Fix)"..Cables in the back of Sony system Should go in the AUX audio inpuit Jack....Reconnect systems to A/C power.

    3. Turn TV on and press Menu key, Select AUDIO, scroll to speaker and set it to OFF....Scroll to "AUDIO OUT" and set to VARIABLE or FIXED (VAR/FIX).

    4. Power audio system ON...Select input that matches jack for TV connection, in this case we Chose AUX....and............wallaa powerful SOUND!!!!

    If you have set the function on the home cinema system to "TV", ensure that the audio cables are plugged to the TV input at the back of the system.

    Your Bravia has also many oudio outputs, check if there is a audio out option on the audio setup menu. And try changing the settings.

On sony, almost everyone gets this symptom because the audio output is variable. In the sony tv menu, turn the speakers off. Then set the output to "FIXED". Now you will have full volume going to the reciever. This is the most common Sony tv surround system hookup problem.

My DAVHDX576WF surround system is connected to my TV by HDMI, but I hear no sound. The home theater test/setup is audible, radio is audible, but nothing from the TV


Which direction do you expect audio to be flowing: from or to the TV? The HDMI is an outbound connection for video. Page 71 describes how to enable the DVD AUDIO ONLY if you really want TV speakers to be competing with the DAV.

No sound from TV thru sony bravia hdx576wf; DVD & CD audio ok.


Could be a sync calibration issue. Try to divert the TV sound to another input source on the Hometheatre system if possible, if it is a go then maybe the TV audio needs to be recalibrated. Make sure TV audio setup menu option has not changed also.

No sound from our Sony Wireless Home Cinema System


Basic checks first. Have you checked they are connected properly? Maybe used a different cable to check whether the rear cables are faulty? You may just have turned your system to 2.1 surrououn sound by accident or be playing a format that only supports 2.1. Check that in the system menu under dec. mode that if it is set to AFD STD that you are playing a DVD which shows can support 5.1 on the back of its cover. Also try running the setup manually and choosing your speaker configuration. Hope this helps.

Sony Bravia Dav-HDX279W and comcast HDTV Cable box connection.


Like above, use an optical connection (need fiber optic cable) or a coaxial connection (single RCA cable). HDMI might also work, but I personally haven't checked. Connect the audio outs from the cable box to the audio ins on the home theater. The TV will only need a video connection from the cable box, as well as one from the home theater (for DVDs, onscreen menus).

This discussion can help you set up the universal remote.
