On some sets that have audio output jacks, the level of the audio output on the RCA jacks is fixed, and it does not change with the TV's volume control. On some sets, such as Sony, you can choose fixed or variable output. I have also seen some sets that have both fixed and variable RCA jacks on the back. With variable audio out, the audio level at the audio output jacks follows the TV's volume control. If you go into the TV's menu and navigate to the audio page, look for fixed or variable output options. If you have the owner's manual, read the section on audio output. If variable output is not an option on your model, then the level is constant and the volume will have to be adjusted with the stereo's volume control.

I have a Harmon Kardon HK 3370 Stereo Receiver and a Samsung LCD LE40C530F1W. When I connect the stereo Aux jack to the LCD Audio jacks ( red and white rf cables ) I get no sound out via the receiver.

Obviously make sure your stereo mode selector is set to AUX and the volume on the stereo is turned up at least a little when you test it.

If you still have no luck then try increasing the volume on the TV as well. You may have it set so that the level of the audio signal leaving the rear output connectors on the TV varies with the TV volume. That way if your TV volume was turned down or muted when you tested it, then you would not hear anything coming through your stereo.

There should be a setting in the AUDIO OPTIONS menu of your TV where you can switch between a VARIABLE AUDIO OUTPUT and a FIXED AUDIO OUTPUT level.

With the FIXED audio output level, you control the volume of the TV audio coming through the stereo speakers with the stereo remote only.

Otherwise it should work.

Good luck.

Can not get sound from tv to play through sterio reciever

One simple way to accomplish this is to run RCA audio cables from the red and white (left and right) AUDIO OUT jacks on the back of your TV, and plug those into the red and white (left and right) AUX INPUT connectors on the back of your stereo.

Then just select AUX on the input mode selector of your stereo and you will hear the TV audio through the stereo speakers.

Make sure your TV volume is turned up about halfway way and then adjust the volume on the stereo to your liking.

In the AUDIO OPTIONS of your TV menu you can usually select whether you want the TV speaker to be OFF or ON. That way you can just control the stereo volume with your stereo remote to hear the TV audio.

Or you can select VARIABLE OUTPUT LEVEL for the rear audio output connectors on the TV, and then you can control the volume with the TV remote and just leave the stereo volume set at one volume all the time.

There are many other ways to hook up sound through your stereo, that is just one cheap and simple one.

Please comment back here to this page if you have any details to add, have any questions, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck.

Can I connect this to my tv? If so how-can't figure out how.

Sure, if your TV has some kind of audio outputs (and volume controls) for the "audio 5.1 inputs" you see in this picture.

You COULD adapt the probably-present stereo audio from your TV for use with the front channels . Stereo.

No audio,tried menu items and selections,nothing.The sound just went out,what do you think it might be?

There is no sound or low volume coming from the television speakers.
Solution Follow this procedure to troubleshoot when there is no sound or low volume coming from the television.

NOTE: Because each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue, check the television status after completing each step.
Increase the volume of the television. Ensure the television audio has not been muted. Ensure no headphones are not connected to the television. If using a set-top box with a volume control, increase the volume of the set-top box.
NOTE: If the set-top box is connected using an Audio/Video (A/V) connection, ensure that the A/V cables are connected securely to the appropriate video input on the television.
Verify that the MTS settings of the television are set to MAIN or STEREO .
NOTE: If the source device is not set to stereo or is not capable of transmitting a stereo signal, sound may come from one speaker on the TV only, and the volume will sound low. In this case, adjust or replace the source device.
If the TV has a Simulated effect in the audio menu, turn it off . Ensure the televisions speakers are not set as the center speaker.
NOTE: Some televisions allow the televisions speakers to act as the center channel speaker when using a multi-channel receiver.
Verify that the speakers are set to ON in the television menu.
IMPORTANT: If the television has audio output jacks and they are connected to a stereo system, then the speakers on the television may be turned off. Some televisions require the internal speakers or the center speaker setting to be off before audio can be sent out to a stereo receiver via the audio out jacks.
Ensure all audio and video cable connections are properly connected to the television.
Test the television using another source like a VCR, DVD player or Blu-ray Disc™ (BD) player.
Reset the television to the original factory settings. To reset your TV to factory settings, turn the TV ON. Then, while pressing the UP ARROW button on the Remote Control, press the POWER button on the TV. The TV will turn itself OFF then back ON.
NOTE: If your remote control does not have a RESET button or the procedure did not reset the TV to the factory default settings, perform a power reset.
If the issue is still unresolved after completing all the troubleshooting steps suggested, service may be required.

My Aiwa Colour TV, model No. TV-A2019, has developed audio problems. 1. The audio output from the speaker is high even when volume is set at level one. Audio output is constant for volume level 1 to...

You just come aroung the sound decoder section of your tv. Decoder problems may cause the fult you pointed out. Since all the controls are electronically controlled, and all are through sound decoder, which converts sound to stereo the problem must be there. Since sound comes from two channels are ok, there is no problem around sound output. Check for some soldering loose contact, wire socket loose cotanct also.

We have the stereo hooked up to the dynex 42'' tv, as we did our other tv, we can not mute the complete sound and also sometimes we cant turn the volume up and down whats going on?

Since you have it hooked up to the stereo system, you need to go to on screen audio set up and turn off the TV built-in speakers (you will be listening the TV sound through your stereo system speakers), then go to the audio output set up and set it to 'variable' so the audio output of the TV's RCA audio out put will vary with the volume control of the TV (not all TV will alow this function), you will need to set the stereo volume to certain level (around 9~10 O'clock setting) since the sound coming from the TV will be controlled by the TV remote volume control. You can otherwise set the TV output to be at 'fixed' level, which means the sound output of the TV will not be controlled by the TV remote volume control, you will use the stereo remote volume control to adjust the sound level instead. I hope this is clear to you.

Can I hook up my steroe speakers to the TV? I have an older model

If your older model TV has red and white plugs on the back of it that say something like "Audio Out" or "Output" then YES.

Simply connect a pair of RCA Cables (available any electronics store) from the Audio Out jacks on your tv to the "AUX" input on your stereo.

You cannot power speakers without some kind of stereo/receiver.

If you do have a receiver then you can connect to your "TV INPUT" on the back of your receiver and control the tv volume with your receiver remote.

If your tv does not have those red and white output jacks then there is no practical way for you to connect your speakers.

Does your tv have stereo outputs? if yes all you have to do is run RCA red..white jacks into tv outtput then run the other ends into the amps tape or aux or cd input and your done! If you dont have outputs on tour tv you will have to but an RF converter box (about 20.00 at wal-mart) and hook that into the tv and the cables will run out of that to the stereo!
