SOURCE: how do i connect my headphones?

If your TV does not have headphone jack outlet, then there is not much you can do, the Audio line level out RED and WHTIE RCA jaks are not made to drive headphone directly, it does not have enough power to drive low impedance load such as headphone which has about 8~32 Ohms impedance, the line out RCA is made to drive high impedance load 20,000 Ohms and higher.
If you want to use headphone, what you can do is to get cheap powered PC speaker system that has headphone out jack, then just connect the powered PC speaker to the audio line out of the TV, but the TV must have an option on the audio setup to turn off the built-in speakers.

SOURCE: my plasma TV has no

The only way to do it (unless you go inside the TV and modify the TV) is to use a small headphone amplifier (or powered PC speaker system with out headphone jack) and connect it to the AUDIO line out (Red and White RCA jacks) on the back of the TV.

I can not get my surround sound to work with my sony bravia HBD-E570 blue ray, while watching dish


I use HDMI cables for my blue ray DVD player, not sure if you do. If so, make sure surround sound is connected to your TV in the right jack. My surround system is old, so only uses RCA's (red, white, yellow). I plug mine into the audio out jacks (red, white) just below the HDMI 1 jack. Only the red and white are required for sound but also can use video (yellow) for higher quality. That is the main audio out. Plug into that and you should have all sound that is on your TV also sent to your surround system.

Why? no sound from the speskers at all.


There are a few things that could cause no sound and although some are obvious I'll got through them all..

1) Sound is on Minimum

2) Sound is Muted

3) No Power to Subwoofer

4) Speakers connected Incorrectly or Faulty

5) No AUDIO IN connections to TV-IN or AUX-IN

6) Incorrect Input Source is Selected (See Below)


Connecting audio from TV

When connecting the audio output from your TV to this Home Theater Audio System, you will have the sound of the

TV output on all the speakers. It will enable you to enjoy the multi-channel surround sound capabilities.


Use an audio cable (red/white - not supplied) to connect the TV IN jacks on this DVD system to the AUDIO OUT

jacks on the TV. To listen to the sound, press TV on the remote control as the sound source that you want to play.


Connecting audio from an audio/video device

This DVD system provides analog and digital audio connection. You can connect the audio output from an

audio/video device (e.g. VCR, Cable/Satellite Box) to this Home Theater Audio System in order to enjoy the

multi-channel surround sound capabilities.

Use an audio cable (red/white - not supplied) to connect the AUX IN jacks on this DVD system to the AUDIO OUT

jacks on the connected device. To listen to the sound, press AUX/DI to select "AUX" as the sound source that

you want to play.

Or

Use a coaxial cable (not supplied) to connect the DIGITAL IN jack on this DVD system to the DIGITAL OUT jack on

the connected device. To listen to the sound, press AUX/DI to select "DI" as the sound source that you want to play.


Please leave feedback

I have a LG LHB335 Blu-Ray home theater system, & a LG TV I can get Full surround sound when the blu-ray is play a DVD but not when just watching Reg TV. I use a HDMI, should I hook up sonething else ?...


LG documentation states:

When you use SIMPLINK function, you have to

connect to the OPTICAL IN 1 jack to enjoy TV
sound to your speaker system.

Basically you need to have the Audio go from TV to receiver and setup receiver to that Input to output surround sound to all speakers.

If you have a cable box or satellite receiver, hook that output into the receivers input and that should work.

My setup is DirectTv HDMI output goes into the LG Home Theater HDMI Input 1, and LG goes HDMI output into the TV HDMI input 1.
so to watch DirectTV, I switch LG Home theater to HDMI Input 1. and TV is on HDMI input 1 (to view LG HDMI output from DriectTV, Blu-Ray, Vudu, etc.)

I have an LG all in one home theatre system, LCD TV and Direct TV satellite box. It is all hooked up and working fine except I only hear the sound through the speakers when playing a dvd or radio. The...


OK. For all you regular Joe's like me here's the fix--plain and simple! I have Dish Networks HD receiver, an LG Home Theater System (LHB953) and an LG HD Television - although I suspect this applies for most LG TV-to-LG Audio Systems used in combination with a HD TV). My problem lied within the LG to LG setting known as SIMPLINK which tries to "auto-configure" everything between LG to LG devices.

Do this to make your HD TV (using Dish/DirecTV) play it's HD video display from the satellite provider but play the audio over the LG surround sound speakers:

1. Plug a HDMI cable from your satelite receiver's set-top-box to your HD TV. This will carry your HD "video" ONLY. Click "Input" on the TV remote until the HD video signal shows your desired TV channel from your satellite provider.

2. Plug an HD Optical cable (the one with the red laser) from your LG HTS (Home Theater System) to your satellite box. This will carry your HD "audio" ONLY.

3. This is the magic everyone seems to be overlooking. On the LG TV remote, go into the menu options and disable SIMPLINK by setting SIMPLINK=OFF. This feature allows the video and audio signals to be split over 2 different ports: HD video goes over the HDMI cable and the audio to go over the HD Optical cable.

Hope this helps!

I've bought a panasonic sound surround dvd player and want to link it to a sky+ box and tv so that sky will play in sound surround. Can you advise on the wiring configuration please?


look at the back of your tv does it have a audio out RCA jack?
it should do plug in the surround sound into that using RCA cables

if your tv does not have audio out RCA jack then you can

get a adapter which makes scart connectors turn into RCA jacks get that off ebay

plug the yellow line to the tv and connect the red and white to suround sound
but with this there are a few problems sound will only come out when surround sound is turned on and skys sound will never play out the tv
if you switch to a PS3 or something it will not play suround sound

yuo best option is the RCA plugs in the back of the tv

because you have not written the model number of the tv or the suround sound i cant help any further

Connect to dvd player


On the back panel of your tv you will see two audio inputs labeled AUDIO TO HI-FI. Plug your surround sound audio jacks, ( red and white ) into that. Plug your video jack ( yellow ) into what ever number input you are going to use for dvd, if needed. This will allow you to watch tv and hear it in your surround sound. You should also go to menu- then- audio option and turn off your tv internal speakers, this will allow your tv remote to control your volume of surround sound. Hope this helped.

Help getting sound from New Sony LCD Television Model XV HTD520 DVD Player with Surround Sound S HTD520


While I could not find it in the manual, I found that you must
go to the menu, open Sound Options and set Speakers to "Fixed".

Note: If you turn off the Surround Sound or DVD player combination you must then go back to the menu and turn the speakers back to Televsion.

Surround Sound using the video feature


You will not get 'surround sound' from this set only stereo sound. The Video/Aux jack at the back of the unit is an input terminal. You can connect the audio part of your TV(if it has a Line Out jack), dvd player or video game console to this input to get the sound through the stereo system. Use a male-to-male RCA cable to make the connection, they are color coded (Red and White). Press the "Video/Aux"  button to select the input terminal.
