Question about Toshiba 27DF46 27" TV

1 Answer

Using 2 Pc speakers on my Tv

I hooked up my pc speakers via headphone jack today and while it works, the sound seems a little off to me. It's almost like it's mono instead of stereo but i'm not really sure about this. Now this TV's audio is stereo but could using the headphone jack instead of RCA adapter's cause it to go into mono? If so, if I bought an RCA adapter would I have to actually adjust the volume via the speaker itself? My menu doesn't have any variable control and im not sure if the inputs in back have variable or not. Thanks

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 sound. 3)Caution==never try to alter vol level at spkr!

How do I get operating instructions for this sound bar

1. Plug it into a power outlet and turn it on.
2. Put 2 AAA batteries in the remote control.
3. Dock your iPod or iPhone into the docking connector.
4. You can hook up the sound bar to your PC (from the RCA(L/R) audio output on your TV to the RCA audio input on the bar) or to your PC (from the headphone jack on the PC to the LINE IN jack on the bar). Obviously, you can hook it up to both TV AND PC only if those two are located close to each other.
5. Using the remote, select the audio source/input you want to listen to: iPod/iPhone, FM Radio (an FM tuner is built into the sound bar), TV or PC.

Hope this helps.

Have an Hitachi 42 PMA400e Plasma Tv.

Unfortunately, if there is no headphone connector on the TV there is no practical way of accomplishing the alternate arrangement.

Just get a headphone jack that does not shut off the speakers and have your dad plug his headphones into that.

If I hook up a set of headphones to the slot on the side of the TV the sound goes off and you can only hear sound through the headphones, no one else in the room can hear the TV. Is there a way to hook...

The headphone jack on the TV has switch built-in to kill the TV speakers when headphne jack is used, you need to use powered PC speakers with headphone jack and connect this PC speakers to the Audio line out of the TV set (RED and WHITE RCA audio line out). Basically the powered PC speakers are being used a headphone driver. Or you can get one of those wirless headphone system instead.

Laptop connected to TV via 23pin cable and setup

You have to connect the laptop to the TV by using the headphone jack on the laptop.
Only then, will the sound be sent over to the TV, and automatically the speakers on the laptop will stop working.

Get a cable to connect them from the headphone jack to an appropriate input on the TV.

Hope I helped,

Sound is working but internal speaker is not working

Connecting headphones to the system will disabled the internal speakers until the headphone jack is disconnected, at which such time the internal speakers should function again.

If you disconnect the headphones and the internal speakers are not re-activated, then there may be damaged to the microswitch in the jack. (Try rebooting after the headphones are disconnected too)

Mitsubishi tv volume on tv not working

If the TV has stereo sound, there may be a speaker switch for internal/external speakers on the rear of the TV that may have gotten bumped by something. (kids, pets, something fell behind?) If no switch, the sound driver chip or speaker may be failed. If the speaker is the culprit, headphones would still work if there is a jack for headphones. Might be a good time to consider a new HDTV

External Sound Card

No, that's not going to work. Digital output is just that....Digital. Your trying to send a digital into analog....won't work. Your tv don't have red and white audio out. That's what you hook to, but it still wouldn't be 5.1. Your out of luck my friend. The ONLY way you'll get 5.1 out of that T.V. is to get a 5.1 reciever with CO-AX digital input...the SAME as whats on your T.V. You can only hook-up sound to your X-FI with the line in jack using a y-connector and 1/8" stereo plug....and it won't ever be 5.1. It can't that way. Only way to get 5.1 to work on the blaster is with the tosh-link optical input cable. This too is digital, but uses optics to send it. Remember, you are playing with 2 different formats. Analog with your white/red thing you made and then digital. Digital using co-ax or optical tosh-link. Completely you now know.
