Hello: Hard to tell what is in the video or if the speakers are hard wired at the speaker end. (that means, do you have a separate cord that youplugged in to the speaker or is the cord fixed to the speaker?)
If they are hard wired then make sure the ends that you are plugging into the tv are clean (ie long enough and not frayed at
the end). Also make sure they are not touching each other.
If you have speaker wire that you plug into the back of your speakers then make sure they are secure and working. Maybe try other speaker cables. You should also check to see if there are any
cuts in the cables you are using. Good luck.

If you look in the menu on your TV there should be an audio selection for internal or external speakers. You have to set it to external before the audio jacks will work. Keep in mind that most TV only put out 5 to 10 watts which may not be enough to power these speakers properly. That's why most people buy an amplifier to go between the TV and external speakers.

Remote sends tv crazy


The volume controller may have been damaged from a power surge or internal disturbance; not related to the a remote control. Your TV has a set of External Out connections, usually RCA jacks colored RED White and/or Black. Red and White jacks are relative to Right and Left Speakers when an attached cord with RCA male connectors are used and connected to an Amp or some type of receiver. You should be able to use the TV OUT Audio to a small Amplifier and connect to a set of inexpensive speakers or any external speaker set. This method bypasses the TV's Internal speaker system as an alternative measure.

3250hd


How have you connected the audio cables to the TV? The 3250HD has component, DVI, and composite video out. There is also two analog audio outputs (for the component and composite video) and a digital audio output. Make sure that you are using a TV and not a monitor. Many monitors do not have built-in speakers. (In that case, use external speakers.)

If you use the digital audio output, make sure that your audio receiver audio input is connected to the set top box audio out. Then make sure to set the correct source for that audio signal. (Note the TV may have a digital audio port; that is an audio out.)

If you are using one of the analog audio outputs directly to the TV, make sure that you are using the correct set of audio IN on the TV and audio out on the set top box. (If you are on the Component input, your audio won't be heard if you are using the Composite audio output.)

Next try different audio cables. Make sure that the TV speakers are on. (Some TVs have an option to disable the speakers if you use external speakers at times.) Try connecting the audio output to a receiver and speaker system (or speakers with aux in). You might need an RCA F/F to 3.5 mm M adapter for some devices. If another set of speakers do not work, then the set-top box probably has a broken audio output. If another set of speakers work, then the problem is with the TV audio. This could be a problem with the jack or the speakers.

I hope this helps.

How to add an Exterior Speaker to Sony KV-13M10


Welcome to FixYa!

To add an exterior speaker to Sony KV-13M10, you have to have an AMPLIFIER.
  • At the back of your TV you will be able to see 3 RCA output namely = VHF/UHF, Audio and Video.
  • Use an RCA cable and connect to the Audio output.
  • At the back of your amplifier, connect the other end of the RCA cable to an RCA input labeled Audio - L (left, usually in white color).
  • Your speaker should be connected to your amplifier labeled output or audio out. The connection type depends on the make and model of your amplifier. The speaker wires usually come in red and black color. red goes to red, black goes to white.

A simple diagram will look like this:

TV audio out -------------> amplifier audio in (left, white color) amplifier audio out (left, white color) -----------> speaker (black wire) amplifier audio out (right, red color) ------------> speaker (red wire)

Thank you for using FixYa.
Have a great day.

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.

External speaker hook-up


Ok, after A LOT of internet research I could not find any solution. So I decided to do a "chop suey" connection.

Went to Radio Shack and bought ...
Insulated Grip 2-1/4"Alligator Clips w/screw terminals 10 (five red & five black)
(A smaller alligator clip can be used if you have a soldering iron to connect the wires.)

30-Ft. 18-Gauge Clear 2-Conductor Speaker Wire

It cost about $15 for everything. Be sure to have electrical tape as well.

Stripped speaker wires to fit through each alligator clip and twisted it around the screw terminals of clip. Tapped screw terminal to cover wiring. Do this for 2 black and 2 red clips.

To install l laid the TV on its back and insterted each alligator clip to firmly fit on each terminal. Because the clips are large it will be a tight next to each other. Be sure to test one line and speaker first before completed the second line and speaker.

GOOD LUCK!

One speaker has stopped working


It could be the cable connecting to the speaker, or the speaker itself. Try taking the cable that's connected to the left speaker and connecting it to the right speaker. If it works, the cable connected to your right speaker is defective, if it doesn't work - your speaker is.
