Go into the onscreen menu of your TV, find and select the audio options. Make sure the audio out on the TV is enabled (this might be an automatic feature and might not be displayed -it depends on your TV model). Next make sure your receiver is working and (if it is so equipped) make sure your speaker switch is enabled.
Make sure all of your cables are working. You can do this by switching out the cables one at a time for ones you know are good.
Make sure no headphones are plugged into your receiver or the TV -this usually turns off your audio signal to any speakers.
Your TV remote may be equipped to control the volume output of the external audio out signal. Some TVs automatically turn off the internal speakers when you hookup or select an external audio output. turn up the volume on both (your TV and the Mitsubishi).
Does the Mitsubishi work on other sources (DVD, radio etc...)?
Remember to double check your cable connections -audio OUT from the TV to audio IN into the Mitsubishi. Reversed connections can damage your TV and amplifier electronics.
What model is your Insignia? Some are equipped with digital outputs which, if your receiver is so equipped as well, can send surround sound (home theatre) signals to your receiver. These can be orange-colored rca jacks or optical jacks. They do not send analog audio signals.
Once all the cables are double-checked, (double-check your speaker connections!), turn on your receiver, TV and signal source (cable, satellite DVD etc...), bring the volume control (both on the Mitsubishi and the TV) up to nominal levels. You should hear sound.
One more thing:
Make sure your speakers work. You can try them on another amp or simply touch the speaker terminals with a 9-volt battery (the speakers should move in or out depending on the 'phase' of the connection).
Hope that helps.
