    Thanks for the info. As it turned out, the answer was right under my nose. Simply turning down the volume does not affect the output to the speakers.

There are several ways, you can either take apart the set and disconnect the speakers cables from the board or you can find and cut the power source where the audio chip amplifier is located that way the amplifier chip wont power on and will not feed the speakers

Can I add speakers to my tv?

Another favourable option is to add BlueTooth speakers that can make your speaker placement wireless and easier without running cables behind furniture, etc. You would need a Bluetooth adapter either pluggable into your TV or externally from cable plugs. It helps that your TV has built-in Bluetooth or Wifi to make this option possible.

How to hook up rca seroundsound

A standard CRT television most likely doesn't support surround sound. Connect at least the FRONT L/R of your source to the stereo in L/R on the television. If you want to enjoy the full experience of surround sound, you should consider purchasing a surround receiver with all required speakers (5.1 / 6.1 / 7.1). They don't have to be expensive second hand (eBay and the likes).

How to conect my wiring tv cabale to my stereo component

For a simple stereo connection If you have a spare set of inputs (CD, AUX, video but NOT Phono/LP) on your receiver, preamp or whatever makes your speakers make noise that accept a pair of red/white RCA type inputs connect the OUTPUT of either your cable box, satellite receiver or TV audio Left & Right (red & white RCA jacks) to the INPUT of your receiver.

How do I turn off the tv speakers so that I may use surround sound?

Depending on the model TV, there may be a switch on the back to turn the speakers off, or there may a choice on the audio on-screen menu to turn them off. Not all sets allow you to turn the speakers off, but you can always mute the sound, although this sometimes leaves the word "MUTE" on the screen to remind you. You can also just turn the volume all the way down on the TV. If you're using the AV inputs on the TV with a device like a DVD player, another option is to connect the video only to the TV, and feed the audio to the amplifier providing surround sound. Then the TV speakers won't be used at all.

Cant get extra speakers to work

Sansui tv's have no provision for powering extra speakers. It depends on the model if it can be hooked up to stereo or surround system. I hope this helps you.

No sound on Panasonic

jennifer, if your tv has external audio out jacks sometimes called audio monitor jacks, it would be possible to attach the dubbing cables to the aux in of a surround system or a power amp. If you are using any type of cable or satelite box, these things usually have video/audio out jacks too.good luck

Speakers in a toshiba 35 tube blown

I spent hte whole day moving my girlfriend and the only thing I got out of it was a TV with no sound coming out of it. I turned the speakers "on" in the menu screen, then i used the speaker output of the tv to a stereo or a couple of cheap speakers. Or connect 1 speaker and set the tv to mono. Hopefully your tv has some form of audio out besides the built in speakers. Good Luck
