I see you are using wireless speakers. The biggest problem with the residential grade is everything interferes with them. Make sure you are moved as far away from power sources as you can be. Direct line of site is not optimal but a fix as well. The wire you have connected for the send receive could be the issue as well. a shielded heavier AWG will help as well as grounding from the source equipment and dropping the ground on the other side.

Having problems connecting using RCA cables (TV to Sound Bar) - No sound on Sound Bar


I assume by using your phone (cable rca to mini jack) the sounbar functions normal. Next time give more info like tv and soundbar make and model no and what connections are available on both components and if its input or output connections.

On the tv make sure the rca cable (tv to soundbar) is plug into the stereo output of the tv and not in a av input. Some tv's have a mini jack out and not rca. Some have a earphone socket which could also be used.

Some tv's only have a digital or optical output port. Iin basic sound work and can be connected with the following combinations .

Minijack to minijack
Minijack to rca
rca to rca
digital to digital
optical to optical

Hi,here is my simple solution...
To listen your TV on your
samsung ps wx30 surround sound system ,
** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or "HDMI out " of your TV unit
** to "AUX input " or "TV" OR "Any input" of your
dvd player or "Optic Cable input" or "HDMI input"
** than just switch to respective mode on
dvd player corresponding your RCA or Optic connection or HDMI ..
.
There you go..Your TV sound is on the
dvd player By this means whatever you watch on the
TV (
tuner, satellite , Xbox , etc..) ,it's sound will come thru your
dvd player.

Hope this helps!..if more he?p requires pls let me know..

I have a sharp aquos model number LC 60le81oun how do I set the settings to input 1 ?? I am trying to hook up external speakers and can't get sound if I hook it up straight to the tv but will get sound if...


Input 1 is an INPUT so you can't connect external speakers there and get sound from the television, which is what you are attempting.

Your two choices are the 3.5mm minijack hole that says AUDIO OUT terminal, which is under the Ethernet Terminal and the DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT terminal, which is under Input 7. If your external speaker system does not have a 3.5 mm minijack input to accept the 3.5 mm minijack cable then this isn't going to work. There are cables where one end is a 3.5 mm minijack and the other end is an RCA so you can try that and it MIGHT work. Other than that the Sharp televisions are known for not carrying sound over the fiber optic cables consistently so even if you bought a fiber optic cable and connected it between the digital audio output and a speaker system or sound bar there is no 100% guarantee it'll work. It is worth a try anyways.

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.
Best Of Luck

I have some logitech Z4 computer speakers


If your TV has a headphone socket, then plug the speakers into there, then (you have to do this for some TVs, but not others), go into the set-up menu and turn the headphone volume to 70%. Switch on the Z4 and sound should come out, assuming all connections are correct.

I want to connect the z2300 speakers to an LCD tv. Do I need a special cable?


try to check your speaker if what type of cable your speaker have...your LCD tv i think its a RCA connector, so you have to insert the RCA connector to the output audio label,,,then the cable which is also an RCA output must be connected to a RCA female connector ....again the output the your female connector will depend to what your speaker output have....it its minijack or RCA then the output must be female RCA of mini jack also.
