Those cables can go bad easily. If you have a meter and know how to use it, try to test continuity on each pin. If that isnt the answer, then either the input of second monitor is faulty, or output of main screen.
You just need an RCA cable. Find the output from your dvd and connect to the input of your tv. The cable has three connectors in three colors...red/white/yellow. Res and white is audio and yellow is the video.
Check the power. Don't be embarrassed if your problem is as
simple as an unplugged power cord. It's better that you should discover
this than pay a repair technician to come out to your house and find
Isolate the problem. The main troubles that will crop up with a TV set are either no picture, no sound or both.
Check the input setting on your remote control. If you have
other devices connected to the TV, such as a video game system, those
devices must be used with a different input setting than the input you
use for watching programs or movies on a DVD or Blu-Ray player. Chances
are, the kids were playing a game and forgot to turn the input back the
way it was.
Press the Input button on your remote control to return to
the setting you wish to use. For example, the cable box might be
connected to Input 1 and your DVD player might be connected to Input 2.
Newer television sets have at least 3 inputs.
Check the coaxial connection from your cable or satellite
receiver to the television. The cable should be attached securely by
twisting the round lock nut clockwise. Also check the power connections
for the satellite or cable receiver. If either is unplugged, you won't
receive a programming signal on the TV.
Make sure the video cable is securely attached to the TV jack if you have a home theater system. The video cable runs from the Video Out jack on your home theater receiver to the Video In jack on the back of your TV.
Check your receiver setting. Home theater receivers manage
several components, so if you have the receiver set to operate the CD
player but you are trying to watch a movie on your Blu-Ray player,
you'll need to change the selection to Blu-Ray to watch the movie on
Check the TV speakers to see whether they have been muted by
accident. Press the volume button on your remote control or go to the
Menu section and scroll down until you reach TV Speakers. Toggle left or
right to turn the speakers on or off.
Press the speaker button on your receiver to make sure your
external home theater speakers are activated. Many home theater systems
use external for their superior audio rather than the speakers inside a television
The only way it cCOULD work would be from a Digital Audio Output to a Digital Audio Input.
What is the model of the TV? Does it REALLY output a digital multichannel audio program? TV's aren't generally known for their audio chops and some of us own monitors with NO speakers or sound capabilities. Hence we buy things like Kenwood receivers and better speakers.
I would recommend that you draw the TV-related audio from the same place the TV gets it - Cable / DVD / BD. The audio hookup is simpler and the fewer intervening connnections, the better.
Make sure your playing componet like CD player have a digital output socket. Connect this to a digital port on the amp witk a single RCA or Optical cable if output available on CD. Make sure the digital assingment in amp is set for cd function and corresponding input(example cd plyer connected on dig 4 input on amp, press menu, setup, assignment, go to cd player, make sure setting on dig 4 or change input to dig 4, go to next component to memorise setting.and exit, see manual to assist you) if still no sound take dvd cable for instance that is working and put that in dig 4 port. if that works check in cd player that settings spdif/raw/pcm is correct one for yor digital output if still no sound soun pc board faulty.
