Question about RCA G35831AT 35" TV

RCA G35831AT 35" TV

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.

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.

Trying to hook up surround sound receiver just like the manual shows but I cant get any sound from the tv but I can get music from the tuner part any suggestions?


Have you enabled the external speaker option on your TV and the set isn't on Mute? Check that you have the surround system's receiver set to the correct input. Next, check the audio level. On some sources for the TV, I need the volume at 65. Other sources sound fine with the receiver at 45. Check that the audio matches that being sent by the TV. On my TV, I needed to go to the Menu > Audio Settings to find the option for turning on the external speakers. Then I had to set the speaker system to Multi-Channel for our specific setup. (There were several options, including Dolby. For my specific setup, these other options didn't give the correct sound.) Finally try a different audio cable between the TV and the receiver.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the make and model number of your TV for additional advice. Adding the type of connection (digital audio (optical/coaxial), HDMI, RCA) will help me suggest potential problem areas.

How do you get audio to play through a receiver? We have the TV running to input on receiver and no sound?!?!


You have to go thru the menus on the TV and tell it you want TV speakers off, and output to surround at fixed volume. Then plug audio out wires (RCA jacks or optical digital wire) from audio outs on TV to AUX or Video or something like that into the receiver.

Sentry 2.1 surround sound speaker system. i have my rca cords plugged in to my tv, but i only get sound from my tv, nothing out of the speaker itself. it only works when i have my headphone jack into


Most televisions have a setting that controls whether the TV uses its internal speakers or sends the sound to the audio out jacks for an external amplifier or speakers.
Try going through the settings menu and follow through the audio/speaker selections and confirm that the TV is set to use external speakers.

Hi i have recently got a lg surround system without a manual, i think all the speakers are set up correctly as i have done a sound test on it and they all seem to make noise however i am having trouble...


You should have 2 RCA jacks on your TV and on the back of your receiver ... a white and a red. These are the left and right audio jacks. Generally, I hook up the audio out from the TV to the DVD player, then from there into the receiver ... this makes it easier to turn off the connection to your receiver if you want to use the TV speakers for news and whatever (by turning the DVD player off). Once the RCA cables are all hooked up, the information should have no problem transferring to your surround sound receiver. Now that the connections are all made, check the settings on your receiver. Make sure that you have the surround sound turned on, and that the receiver has all speakers selected (hunt through the menus and find the "dolby 5.1" or "THX" surround options and turn one on. This SHOULD resolve the problem.
If this did not repair your issue, make sure that all of your equipment that you are running through is all capable of surround sound (if you have a really cheap DVD player like me, it may not be able to handle surround sound). If your TV is surround capable (LCD, Projection, and Plasma TVs are usually all capable of this ... CRT tvs are not always capable) but your DVD player is not, hook your TV's audio RCA cables directly to your surround sound receiver and you should be set. If your TV and DVD player are not capable of Dolby or THX surround sound, then you will probably not be able to use that feature, so your satellite speakers might not work, but the main left and right should still work fine.
One other thing that I have had issues with in the past is the connections on the back of the receiver. If you are using speaker wire (a lot of newer systems have input jacks instead of wire because they are easier to deal with) then make sure you have stripped enough of the wire to make a good connection in the back of your receiver. If you have too little wire exposed, or if you have pushed the wires in too far, the insulator on the wire will block the connection. To be sure this is not the case, be sure that only the exposed part of the wire is sticking into the back of your receiver. Also, make sure that you are not trying to run too much wire between the receiver and the speakers -- if you have a 100ft wire between the system and the speakers, they might not be getting a strong enough signal to work -- you can buy a signal amplifier for your speaker wire, or you can use a shorter wire.
Most likely you have to find the settings in your menu and turn on the other speakers. If the sound test worked for all of the speakers, the connections are all good, and it is the system not telling the speakers to work.

How do I wire up my Logitech X540 Speaker system to my Lg tv?


Most TV's nowadays, have audio out RCA jacks that will allow you to send audio from the TV, to an alternate source. These speakers do come with an adapter that allows you to hook up RCA red and white audio cable, and plug them into the adapter, which goes from the RCA jack to a 1/8 in female headphone style jack. You would then need to get a 1/8 in audio cable that has two male ends, and plug that into the back of your sub woofer in the front speakers port. But this really isn't going to give you very good sound quality being it's not giving you true 5.1 surround sound, even with the matrix feature enabled!

I have rca home theater system rtd215 plays dvds fine but no sound when im watching tv programs i have no cable box just the jacks on my tv [52 projection screen phillips] and i tried hooking them into the...


This reson you are not hearing any "TV AUDIO" through your RCA surround system would be due to your tv sound output not being connected to an audio input into your surround system. You can hear DVDs,CDs and radio possibly mp3 if connected, as these are built in to the amplifier which the speakers connect to.
If the tv has a Line out (via phono plugs) and NOT via headphone out, connect it to an audio input on the RCA surround system. If the RCA has no other available inputs, well....there ain't a lot you can do but watch CSI with the sound from the TV and then Star Wars (for example) through the TV and Surround system.

TO GET SURROUND SOUND I NEED RCA CABLES WERE DO THEY GO ON MY TV


You won't get surround FROM your TV. It's just a lightshow device with bare minimum speakers and audio chops.

Get the TV-related audio from the same source IT IS WATCHING - Cable/SAT/DVD/BluRay/Game. Digitally, if possible. Otherwise you'll just get stereo analog sound.

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 surround sound on normal tv just dvds


Do you have a cable box or satellite box? If you do, try hooking up your TV sound through the box. Look for audio out in the back of box (white/red RCA Jacks). Hook RCA cable from cable box to surround amp. Even if the audio out jacks are being used already, you can use Y connectors to hook up the surround amp to the box.
Hope this works for you!
