You have a cabling and/or setup issue and need to check your hardware manuals (or find them online) for instructions.

I have a Samsung HT-C550, a DirecTV satellite box, a Vizio 37" HDTV, a Sony 5-disk DVD player and a Vizio Blu-Ray DVD player, all peacefully co-existing (with the use of a bunch of cables as well as a Logitech Harmony 700 universal remote).

The TV (not the home theater) controls the use of the TV speakers.

There are multiple options to get this to work. I run an HDMI cable from the sat box to the TV. (HDMI sends audio & video to the TV). I then run an optical cable from the TV to the CT550 and use the "D-In" setting to get the sound to play.

Instead of the optical cable from TV to CT550, you can run audio from the sat/cable box directly to the CT550 using (red/white) RCA cables from the "audio out" jacks on the sat/cable box to the "AUX1" or "AUX2" inputs on the CT550"

Hope this helps!!

Internal speakers won't turn off when external audio is connected


Normally , you would expect the TV sound to stop when headphones are plugged in. Obviously not in this case. If you have a set of headphones, try them and see if the TV still has speakers on. If it does, then there may be a setting on the setup of the TV to get headphones to work. If the TV speakers stop, then I would think that the Logitech are not compatible with the TV. The only other thing would be is to get into the TV and disconnect the TV,s own speakers. If the wires are soldered on and not terminal connected, carefully cut 1 of the wires off near the speaker. If 1 wire is cut, the speaker wont work. Make sure both the TV and the additional speakers (If they have their own power supply) you are using are unplugged from the power before you go doing this...!

This information comes from the online reference book: Using the Sound Menu

Use the remote to open the TV menu. Select the Sound menu, and the "speakers" decision. From the two choices, "TV Speakers" tells the tv to use its built-in speakers. "Audio System" tells the TV to use an external audio system, and disables the internal speakers. Select "Audio System," and check to see if it works. If it still hasn't recognized that there is an external audio system plugged in, you may need to clean the stereo mini jack (3mm audio jack) with a small wooden toothpick or similar small diameter non-conducting device.

How to connect 5.1 speakers to ps with asus p5gc motherboard


So you want to connect your Play-Station to 5.1 surround sound speakers through a motherboard, so you can get sound from the Play-Station through the speakers while playing on your LCD TV (LED is something completely different)

You need to get a very specific type of Sound Card to do that.
I would recommend the Creative Sound-Blaster X-FI it is relativity old now, so it will be quite cheap you could get it for about 60 pounds. It is a PCIE card and comes with an external connection box and External Creative X-FI USB sound card dongle thingy.

I would recommend some bettor speakers for this as well as you get 3D crystal sound automatically, unless you turn the settings off. There are options in the EQ for just about every music type and every environment you can think off. Best of all it comes with a remote control. The sound from the Play-Station goes in to the connection box and the sound out from the conection box goes to the TV. There are 6 Audio in 9 audio out on the connection box and a bunch of other connection ports for various things. MIDI, small jack connectors large jack connectors, I-pod connector wireless expansion port, Ethernet port, Fiber optic ports x2, component audio, scart and a bunch that I don't eaven know what they do. ,

Trying to connect a sony home theatre system so that the akai television plays through the home teatre speakers. I used an hdmi cable, but the tv still only plays threough the tv.


The HDMI jacks on the TV are HDMI in. Thus to get the theater system to play the sound, you use the HDMI out from your set top box to the HDMI in of the Sony theater system and then the HDMI out of the theater system to the TV. (Connecting the HDMI in of the TV to the HDMI in of the home theater system will not work.)

If you are watching OTA TV or a direct coax cable connection, you need to hook up the TV audio out to the home theater system audio in to use these speakers with the TV. Then you probably need to set the TV to use the external speakers. This will probably be in the Menu under Audio. (Toggle external speakers on/off)

The Akai LCT2785TA has RCA audio out (1/4" red and white jacks). If your home theater system has RCA audio in, just get a patch cable (MM ends on each side of the cable). If your home theater system only has digital audio inputs, you will need a converter. http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/audio-converters-extenders/analog-to-digital-digital-to-analog/1t-ap-216/prod1TAP216.html is a link to one appropriate converter.

I hope this helps.

I just sold my surround sound system and now I can't get the on board speakers to work.


Just check the rear of the television if by chance you have left any cable still connected to the audio output jack. If there the TV might be trying to redirect the audio to an external device not present. Sometimes it could also be a simple setting to be changed , . Check if you have a switch at the back of the TV stating External or Internal speakers. From the manual i got

A/V Receiver: The TV can detect audio connections on the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack and the right (red) analog AVR AUDIO OUTPUT jack.
Note for Analog A/V Receivers: When you disconnect an analog A/V receiver, manually change the Speakers setting to TV to hear sound from the TV speakers.

Press Menu on the remote-> Goto AV
Select Audio by pressing the right key
Under that the first option of Speakers -> select and set to TV.
Only then will the TV speakers play the audio.

How to connect external speakers to this tv. Only output jacks exist for audio.


Most of the TV's do not have a speaker output and so you will need to open the set and take the speaker connect to be meshed along with a impedance matching.
You can connect with a switch wherein the TV speakers can be switched OFF and the external speaker connected . If not the external speaker if connected in parallel must not bring down the impedance to a lower level not supported by the output IC.
The other option is to use the output AV to connect to an amplifier and speaker. ( Your Audio system)

Try stripping the speaker wires and exposing it about 1 inch. Then connect the speaker wires in a way that the part that grips or holds the wires touches the metal part and not the insulation. If there's still no sound, Please check the external speakers to see if it's working by using them in another device like a home system or audio player or maybe another tv that has an external speaker port. If not, mostly likely the switches are defective and needs replacement by a qualified technician.

Hope this helps.

I have a panosonic plasma tv when i switch it on it tell me there is a speaker short and then switches it self of model number pdp507xda help


It's the internal circuitry problem. Try muting it and put audio connection to other speakers if it repeats, your TV audio system is internally dying.the audio connections has to be checked and faulty components should be replaced.
1. Speaker short.
Open it up and check the speaker connections. ONLY if you have basic skills working on electronics and don't have a warranty.
2. Sound Volume "Leveler"
Look in your sound option menu for a sound "balancer" option and turn it off.
If this doesn't work disable the sound and invest in that surround sound system (external speakers solution of your choice)

-----------
try this.for first unplug the main power cord of the tv for couple of minutes and then reconnect it.also before reconnecting the power cord of the tv again remove all the external device wires connected at its back such as dvd player/vcr etc etc.just connect only tv wire and check out.if still the same problem then its quite possible that the capacitors and ic on the audio circuit board are getting short in between so the circuit is not getting completed and cutting in between so the tv starts and turns off. if the tv is connected to externalk speakers then check out without connecting the external speakers and see whether it works.if it works that means tv is perfect.but if tv is having inbuilt speakers that its confirm problem with inter audio circuit of tv.so try connecting external speakers at the back of tv and check out.

This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.
