I was trying to add some surround sound speakers to the TV. As I was going to plug in the audio wires from the surround sound to the TV there was a sound, and shortly after that some smoke. I'm not sure, I looked inside and didn't see any visual damage. Now the TV will turn on, then immediately off, then it repeats process 2x. So if anyone has any sort of suggestion, I'd really appreciate it. Thaks.

Re: RCA G35831AT 35" TV
The G35831AT uses the CTC179 series chassis. When you touched the wires to the speaker jacks you probably somehow managed to short out the audio output IC, which would have sent up some smoke. When the set is turned on, the computer senses that the audio output IC is shorted and shuts the set down. The audio output IC should be replaced and all other circuits checked by a qualified tech familiar with the 179 chassis.

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)
This is a loss of the "pincushion correction" circuit. These sets are known for bad high voltage capacitors in the horizontal circuit that cause a loss of pincushion correction. It could also be loose solder connections in the horizontal circuit. This can be a dangerous circuit to work with. Have a shop check it for you. Thanks for using fixya.
No need for the answer I have the setup instructions for the rca tv. I am a tv and computer technician and always carry a sheet with these instructions as I work for company like Sears on tv, projection tv, audio and other electronics, thanks for the help.
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
1)probable incompatibility issue--for comparison
did you try a set of headphones?
2)The RCA audio outputs on the tv can go to an
amplifier that has speakers attached,ie surround
3)Caution==never try to alter vol level at spkr!
