SOURCE: LG LCD HDTV 'NO SIGNAL'

To fix the problem, try turning off the TV and unplugging it from the outlet. Once unplugged, push the power button and hold it down for 1 minute. Then turn the TV back on and rescan for channels.

If the problem persists, contact LG customer service immediately as there is a problem with the memory card. The device is unable to retain scanned channels for immediate feedback.

All LG LCD automatically comes with a 1 year manufacturing warranty. You would have to provide proof of purchase to show when it was purchased. Hope this helps. The Guru

Pyle #PSBV200 soundbar there's no optical in on back of soundbar,my tv on back of it, does'nt have audio out, to plug in red&white cables, what do i do?


Check if you have coax output (orange colour socket) on TV and soundbar if you have you can link them together for digital audio, if not check if you have a headpone socket if so you can buy an adpter from headpones to phono connectors (your red & white) but be aware that when you turn the volume up via TV remote control it will turn up the volume on the soundbar.

A LG soundbar to a Laurus TV I've fix a optical lead one end and jack plug on the other but it doesn't work


A fiber optic cable carries infrared light path only. It's a digital signal, you can only connect this to equipment that has an optic connection. Adapting it with any kind of analog jack just simply won't function.

checking the Google images of the Digital module does not show a tos-link connection for the module.

How do I connect my ht ct260h step by step, with hdmi input do I use


HDMI can be a bit confusing when first connecting a system. Overall, the HDMI cable system allows for less clutter and digital audio and video, but you need some background to get it right.

The simple answer to your question is that the HDMI on your TV that is labeled HDMI out will go to your soundbar's HDMI input. Now, the reason you have a picture but no sound, will be one of 2 problems. If your TV is labeled with ARC, this means that it has an HDMI with Audio Return Channel and will be compatible with your CT260h soundbar. If you don't have sound, then you need to replace your HDMI cable with a ver1.4 HDMI cable so that ARC is supported in the cable design. If your TV does not provide ARC, then you will need to connect the audio using the digital optical connection which is a fiber optic cable of the TOSLINK variety. This cable should have been included with your soundbar packing.

Also be aware that if you buy a HDMI1.4 with Redmere technology to save on the size of the cable, it has a direction for the signal flow which must be adhered to, otherwise the cable will not pass either audio nor video.

I hope that answers your question.

How do i connect a technika TKSBSE213 soundbar to a telly


Does your TV have a Digital optical port? It's a cable that sends a red light source. That is actually how you're suppose to hook up a soundbar. digital optical cable Bing images Straight forward. Plug and play. If you're TV doesn't have an optical port, as I know your soundbar does then you have to use a stereo Y Cable. 3.5mm to Red/White. Sound bar will have 33% the power going this way as opposed to an optical cable. Aux Audio Out has a itty bitty amp pushing power. Purpose of the Digital optical Cable is a light source.

Does the Samsung UN50f6300af smart led tv support the Samsung Wireless audio soundbar HW-H450?


Because your TV is not Bluetooth-enabled and you are trying to connect it to a Bluetooth-enabled soundbar via Bluetooth. There are other ways to connect your TV to the soundbar:

1. analog AUDIO OUT (L/R) of your TV to the AUX IN on the soundbar (use a 3.5 mm.-to-RCA audio cable).
2. Optical OUT on your TV to Optical IN on the soundbar.
3. HDMI port to HDMI port (this may not work if your TV is not ARC compliant you have to try).

You get better sound quality with option 2.or 3. (if this one works for your TV)

Here is the link to download the soundbar's User Manual for help with the connections:

LG sound bar don't work on LG tv


Need models of TV and soundbar to be more specific.

Generic help: Not plugged in correctly (you connected to the TVs red and white sockets without realising that they are a "signal in" and not a "signal out" type socket. Incompatible (i.e. a soundbar that uses ARC but the TV doesn't have it). Wrong TV settings - You're connected to the headphone jack but you didn't bother reading the manual that tells you there's a separate control for audio out via that jack and it's buried in the menus. The list goes on.....

Read the manuals, and don't just guess where things plug in. That's always a good start.

Sound bar compatibility


Make sure red glow is coming from TV's Opt out cable when TV is on. If it is, it is working. The best solution is use an LG soundbar with an LG TV. There is a differnce in digital outputs and with a "service remote" (used by authorized LG servicers) you might be able to change the TVs factory setting to make the vizio soundbar work. but I think you'll be better off with the LG soundbar.

How to set up LG NB2020 40W Soundbar


Connect optical cable to soundbar and tv. Plug in the soundbar.
One gotcha -- the red light on the soundbar means the power is off. No light means the power is on.

Depends on whether your tv supports "ARC" ( Audio REturn CHannel) or has an optical out port..the sound bars are designed to work with either the "ARC" function or optical out option
