RCA Audio Out not working?

I have hooked up stereo RCA cables to my TV's audio out ports and plugged them into my home stereo receiver. The sound continues to come out of the TV's built-in speakers for all sources (cable, DVD, composite, component). Is there a setting I need to change in my menu, or is there something wrong with my TV?

Re: RCA Audio Out not working?

You don't say whether you're successfully getting sound out of your stereo or not. I'll assume for the moment you are. Still getting sound out the TV is perfectly normal - RCA plugs have no mechanism for automatically disconnecting the built in speakers (in this respect, they're different from a headphone socket). Solution should simply be to press the mute button on the TV remote - although this will silence the TV speakers, you wouldn't normally expect it to affect the RCA output (failing that, just turn the TV volume control right down).

How can I make a NEC Plasma Monitor that was given to me work like a TV that has AUDIO?

If it has no internal sound, then you obviously can't make it function like a TV aside from the picture right? It does have inputs whether HDMI or standard Cable wiring to see TV from a cable box?

You'd need to have RCA cables coming from the cable box (Audio out - white wire I'd figure) going into a stereo near the monitor that has a VIDEO button on it where the white RCA cable is plugged into the Audio In jack.

A stereo receiver or even old sort of stereo with a Video or Auxillary sort of jack with button to activate that jack will allow for surround sound from the stereo coming from the cable box in sync with the video of the TV.

Hooked up HDMI cable from receiver to tv, no sound coming out of speakers, am/fm works through speakers fine, is there something I need to do with my tv to make it work, and does it matter which HDMI port...

The HDMI ports on your television are not audio ouput ports, they are same as component INPUT, but with all in one cable. The only way you can connect your tv to your stereo is by adapting the headphone jack on the side panel of the tv. Get a mini 3.5 mm y-adaptor to two rca female connection, now you can hook to your stereo using white & red L-R connections analog.

No other way to connect this. Refer to page 29 of your instructions manual.

Hi, sorry but Most LG's no longer have audio outputs. The easiest way to get it ,You need to take the audio output from the source i.e. "cable box output"..if you have of course...
However whether your TV has this output or not we need to make some tests..5 different connections possibilities provided below.
(not by can start with any of it ).Below ,there is a sample TV back panel picture as well
1) 2x RCA ports red / white is audio out ( L + R ) of TV to Stereo..
2) You can get also the audio digital output from the TV to a A/V receiver. the tv's optical audio out is stereo only mainly designed for freeview or tv audio to be output,
set the audio ouput on the TV menu to Dolby Digital, connect a digital optical out directly to the A/V receiver to receive audio signals.
3) since your TV has :2 x HDMI, SCART, AV, Component Video, VGA-sub, USB 2.0, connections,you may use the SCART plug to get Audio output for your TV .
TV's SCART connector which has 21 pins and "2x Audio Output " pins should be in it.
you need to buy an adapter called " RGB Scart Male to 3 RCA AV Female Adapter Converter" that can easily be found any electronic example as found eBay URL is below..
After you get this adapter,you need to carry the audio signal from SCART's RCA plugs to your Receiver with a 2x RCA (white/red ) cable.(if this does not work ,mfg should state somewhere in the your TV's "SCART socket IN only" ) if you properly connect IN/OUT plugs you will able to get the audio signal of the TV thru stereo..I recommend 2 $ value "RGB-Scart-Male-3-RCA-AV-Female-Adapter-Converter" with IN/OUT switch on it.
4) use HDMI connection of TV if you have HDMI input on your stereo of course...
5) if these are not an audio-out on one of these connectors , so you'll need to use the headphone socket if you want to plug it into a stereo. you need a cable 2x RCA to 3.5mm Headphone jack.
( This is the last ditch solution , since it mutes the whole sound.) ..
NOTE: if you connect this, pls be careful,your TV voice level will drive the stereo volume....

Hope this helps!..if more help requires Would you please let me know the result ?
Take care and please

I have a V-zon digital tv that I can't get the sound to work when I am on the internet or in other words I don't know how to hook the cable box to the tv to get the sound. The tv can only get the pictures...

When you are using the TV as a monitor (VGA) you need to connect the audio out from the computer to the VGA audio in of the TV. (Otherwise connect computer speakers to the computer (if a desktop) and use those speakers.) The audio out for a desktop is usually marked by a green 3.5 mm jack. The VGA audio in will be a 3.5 mm jack as well; so an audio patch cable (3.5 mm M/M) is needed. (The green port is normal for computer with Line-In, Line-Out and Microphone ports. If the computer has an option for surround sound, check the manual to make sure which port you should use for Line-Out.)

If your cable box has an internet connection (like some DVRs, blu-ray players and TVs), the HDMI cable will carry the audio without separating it out unless you feed the signal through a home theater system (or audio receiver) for a surround sound system.

Which model TV do you have? That will help track down where the VGA audio in port will be. Some models have the VGA audio in next to the VGA port. On other TVs, it is near other audio input and output jacks. Usually it is clearly labeled but you may need a magnifying glass to read the text. (Sometimes it will be labeled VGA/DVI audio in.)

I hope this helps.

(I have one TV in my household where the DVI audio in uses 2 RCA jacks, even with a computer as the source (so there may be some TVs with that for the VGA source as well). For that situation, I use a 3.5 mm to 2 RCA (M/M/M) cable or an adapter - either 2 RCA (F/F) to 3.5 mm (M) at the computer with an RCA audio cable or 2 RCA (M/M) to 3.5 mm (F) at the TV with a 3.5 mm audio patch cable.)

If you are using HDMI cable you will not be using the YELLOW RCA plug sine the Yellow pug is for composite video. Analog audio uses RED (RIGHT) and WHITE (LEFT) for sound.
How exactly youhave the whole thing setup? through the receiver or just between the TV HDMI port and the HDMI port on the DVD player?
You will also need to setup the HDMI sound set up to send the sound through the HDMI cable or through the audio analog RCA ports.
More info needed. Hook up per DVD and TV user manuals

If you look real close at the VGA port on the TV, you will see a small mini phone jack 'AUDIO' that is for attaching the audio cable with mini stereo phone plug at both ends, one end is to the TV PC audio input jack, another end goes to the PC AUDIO line out or headphone out.

Where on the tv do u plug in headphones?I hve a sanyo tv DP32640

Get an adapter: the one you need depends on the headphone type. If you have the standard IPod/computer headphones with a 3.5 mm plug, get a 3.5 mm F to RCA stereo (2 male plugs). Then plug the RCA plugs into the audio out of the TV and the headphones into the 3.5 mm end.

The TV's Audio out is between the Composite Video IN (Video 1) and the PC input.

If you want to have a longer cable, get the 3.5 mm F to RCA stereo (2 Female ends) adapter. Then connect a stereo audio cable to the TV audio out and the RCA side of the adapter and the headphones to the 3.5 mm port.

Make sure that the TV outputs to the external speakers (some tvs do this automatically when external speakers are plugged in). Menu > Sound

I hope this helps.

Setting up the TV with our stereo

Sure. On back of DVD player find 'audio out" left and right.
Obtain a twin RCA jack audio cable of sufficient length and put
the two plugs on one end into those audio ports, and plug
the color matching ends into any available" audio in" left/right
ports (except "phono") on your receiver. Done.

For the TV sound use the same kind of twin cable, and obtain
the sound source from audio out left/right on the back of your
cable or satellite provider box and find one additional set
of available "audio in" left/right ports on your receiver. Done.

Turn the receiver dial to correspond to the audio port that
you selected on the back and enjoy it.

If you don't have a separate cable or satellite box chances
are your TV will have audio out left/right ports in the back
or front somewhere and use those to route your TV sound,
but if you do that don't expect the sound quality to be
top notch (depending on the TV circuitry ).

If you have only one unused audio in left right pair available
on your receiver you will need to use an "A/B" audio
switch, and your local electronic store can tell you how to
use it.

You are doing the right thing. The sound should be much
improved by using your receiver. And by the way, when the
sales person in the store suggests that you need gold plated
jacks ignore him and buy the plastic ones. They will work
just fine.

Good luck.

Audio output not working

I had what may have been a similar problem and even talked to Westinghouse to see what I was doing wrong. Woman suggested there was a problem with the audio output port and suggested I exchange tv for another one. When the new one had the same problem, I discovered that to get audio out requires the volume to be turned way up on the tv (set speaker preference to external only if you don't want sound from tv speakers as well). If you have a digital optical connection on both the tv and the home theater, the sound output is independent from the tv setting and is easier to work with.
