Checked the TV setup and speakers are enabled. Plug mp3 player directly into all various rca and 1/8" inputs with volume turned up and no sound. I don't even hear the typical "hum" loudness when the volume is pumped up. Nothing smells burnt am I missing something?

Re: Built in speakers no longer work
We had the same unint in our store with the same problem.
the cause was a manufactior defect.
a heatsink was shorting to a electroletic capasitor on the main audio amp.
fix was to isolate with a non cunductive plastic over the capasitor causing the short.
hop this helps.

Near the Audio / Video inputs on your tv, you should see a "headphone" jack or it may be labeled "Audio Out"
some sound bars plug into these jacks using standard heaphone jack.
Other sound bars may need to be connected to the device your using on your tv. (DVD player, cable box, etc.)
Tv speakers can then be disabled in the "Audio" menu of your tv.
I suspect what you're wanting to do is take the audio output from the TV and run it through your stereo system to leverage the large speakers. Correct?
I suggest using the RCA audio jacks (red and white pair) on the back of the TV. Most TV's still have these. Some are tied to a specific component, and some are general for all sound coming out of the TV. You connect this to the input RCA jacks on your stereo system.
The headphone jack on the TV could also work, but I suspect it may have a low level output. I don't understand how you say your MP3 player plays fine through the headphone jack, as that's an output, not an input. Unless there's some other jack?
Many TVs have to have the optical output enabled in a set-up menu. Do you see red when the connector is disconnected (which doesn't necessarily mean that it is active, just that it is 'ON').
Have you checked the amplifier to insure that the input is working by connecting something else directly up to it? Can you test the TOSLINK converter by plugging the output into something else to determine where the problem lies. I still suspect it is in the menus of the TV.
It are two things or the plasma not ordering this him the sign it gives audio or not this one connecting the amplifier to the audio exit the cables rca have to go connected in the audio exit of the plasma in the part of behind he says exit

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
Good day sir, Hi, you see, the TV produces its own sound, you need to feed this sound to your PC. here are options were you need to choose.
You need a separate sub/speaker system for your TV. feed the sub/speaker with the sound line out from the TV. you also need an RCA to stereo baby plug adaptor for your sub/speaker.
If you want to use your PC speakers, feed the line out of the TV sound to the line in of the PC, usually the line in is the blue port, you need an RCA to stereo baby plug. then activate the line in function from the mixer volume properties. This requires that you turn on your PC when in TV mode.
Simply disconnect the sub/speaker baby plud input from the PC and connect it to the line out of your TV using an RCA to baby jack adaptor. (re connect again if you want it on your PC. this is very complicated)
Does your sub has extra input? like aux, or cd, or tuner? feed the TV line out to one of these extra port. use the input selector switch from TV and PC. you need an RCA to stereo baby plug connector.
I forgot to ask, Does your TV has line out? if no, you are stuck with the built-in speakers.
