Question about Unknown Vizio SB4020M-A0 Home Theater Sound Bar

Open Question

I cannot get sound from my Vizio 2.0 40" sound bar after connecting to an LG5400 42" TV.

Soundbar works on other devices (laptop/phone), and headphone jack on TV works with headphones, they just don't work together. Also tried headphone input to soundbar and RCA cable to TV. Tried both connection combinations with TV speakers ON and OFF. Tried cycling inputs on soundbar, with the two different connections (RCA/headphones to soundbar/TV) with speakers ON and OFF. Tried different channels with those connection combinations as well. Still no sound.

How do I connect my skullcandy headphones to my vizio sound bar ..... When I have the two in sync mode they don't connect to each other ...... How do I get them to connect to each other


I don't think you can connect the two because at least the headphones are not Bluetooth-enabled. Probably the soundbar is not Bluetooth-enabled either.

Connecting a sound bar


Typically you will connect the RCA audio output jacks to the audio input jacks on the sound bar, but if your television does not have RCA audio output, you may have to buy additional hardware to make the soundbar work. If your TV has a headphone jack, then you will need to purchase an 1/8" Headphone connector to RCA Connector cable from a local electronics or audio store. If your TV doens't have any audio outputs, you may need to purchase a digital tuner box and connect it to your TV and soundbar.

Sound bar compatibility


Make sure red glow is coming from TV's Opt out cable when TV is on. If it is, it is working. The best solution is use an LG soundbar with an LG TV. There is a differnce in digital outputs and with a "service remote" (used by authorized LG servicers) you might be able to change the TVs factory setting to make the vizio soundbar work. but I think you'll be better off with the LG soundbar.

I want to connect my mp3 player to either my soundbar or flat screen. How would i go about that?


Hi

You don't identify your make and model of MP3 player or your Flat Screen TV.

Some types of MP3 player can dock into a device (MP3 Dock) that has audio output connectors that can connect to either your TV or your Sound Bar with either standard stereo phono or HDMI cables (your TV has HDMI capability).

If no dock is available for your MP3 player, a stereo phono to 1/4 inch stereo jack will connect either audio Out or Headphone Socket to your TV or Soundbar. The sound quality may not be the best with this type of connection but it should be adequate.

A retailer like Radioshack, Best Buy, PC World, Maplin, etc. (depending on where you are) should stock these MP3 Docks and cables.

Hope this helps.
