So to clarify, the T.V. turns on but the system doesn't turn on with it? Most external sound systems have their own and separate power supply. You will need to turn it on as well as the T.V.,

SOURCE: LG 47" LCD TV - 47LC7DF Clicking Noise

I was told that these clicking noises (which happen on my Magnavox LCD too) were due to the "power required" at the internal switch. Seems that the power required to immediately turn on the TV is too much for a standalone household outlet, so it "surges" power in a series to get enough there. Hence, the clicking sounds are actually mini power surges to send more power to the internal circuits to turn the TV on.

If your set is like mine, these noises generally stop after a minute or two, correct?

SOURCE: HDMI Cable - No Sound L42WD22 RCA Flat Panel TV

No sound and a digital picture. i will assume you have no signal on analog rf cable. Thomson(RCA) have been having problem with these sets. The trouble stems from the digital cuircit board. We see alot of these. You used to get the digital board.. they are not availble.. so rca found the component on these that fail.. A VERY SMALL surface mounted fuse. With a lighted magnifer and some fine tip twezzers. we replace these fuses on these boards. Do you have any soldering experence..

You could replace the HDMI port on the TV, it's no different than changing a USB port card in your computer. But, finding the replacement HDMI port card for your TV can be tough. Try shopjimmy.com for parts.

How to connect to tv


There are several ways to connect a game console to a TV. The question is, what system are you trying to connect? Some features may be available for the newer generations, that are not on older models. I'm assuming, since you have posted with a picture of a Sony Playstation 3, (PS3) that is the system you are trying to connect. The easiest way to install is to use the supplied (RCA) connection cords that comes with every PS3 system. One side connects to the corresponding port in the back of the system, and the other end has (3) multicolor plugs. They will match the colors on most TV's. Some of the older TV's do not have the RCA ports and will require an adapter to connect this way. These colors are; YELLOW (video out) RED (audio out right channel) and WHITE (audio out left channel or MONO) The PS3 also has and HDMI port, and is much simpler to connect the TV and game console together. As I stated before, not all TV's are equipped with HDMI. HDMI cables carry both the video and the sound through 1 cable. To install this way, simply turn on your TV to the correct aux port, in this case HDMI, then connect the the HDMI cable from the PS3 to an available port on the TV. After you have connected the cords, turn the system on and it will tell you that it has "Detected an HDMI connection. Would you like to use this connection?" Select yes. The rest is automatic.
Also, if you didn't know and are needing a new rca cord to connect to the TV, search for a cord from one of the older systems in the SONY family and they will save you some cash, as they are all exactly the same. PS1, PS2, and PS3 all use the same connection. I hope this helps. Good luck!

NEC PX-50XM4A 50" plasma tv - I get a picture but no sound. I have my cable box plugged in to the DVI port converted to HDMI going to my cable box but I cant get sound when I plug external speakers in to...


HDMI carries both video and audio.
Do you get video and audio on TV. Just to be sure.
Now are the external speakers powered ?
are you connecting the Speakers to Audio Out of the TV ?
By the way, I cannot see any RCA port that is output port on your NEC plasma. NEC 50XM4 User Manual Specifications The audio input is for audio from dvd for example.

LG blue ray won't play sound from RCA sound bar. HDMI cable is hooked into HDMi slot on TV


the details you provided were very vague, however from my experience when a device is connected to another device via and audio capable hdmi cable, that device renders it audio output to the device its connected to and normally turn off all other audio outputs beside optical- I would assume there is an option in the blue ray player to turn off hdmi audio, which will in turn activate other audio outputs- you may also look for audio out port on your tv, it is ideal to connect the sound bar directly to the tv set audio out ports. To sum this up,
if you plan to use your player via hdmi cable you need to turn off hdmi audio output on the blue ray player and the plug an audio cable from your blue-ray player to your sound bar
you may also as i said connect your sound bar directly to your tv, the issue is most tv sets now a days do not have an audio out port, if you do then everything you play thru your tv will have audio via sound bar
there are several way to go here but unless your sound bar has hdmi av switching capabilities (im sure not) this is one of the most simple--Good Luck.

How to plug the blu-ray into the tv


It depends on the TV inputs. You will need to provide your own cables for most connections. If your TV has an HDMI in, get an HDMI M/M cable of an appropriate length. (Use an online shop for better prices.) This will provide the best picture. (If you have a sound system with HDMI ports, you may be able to go EDBC011 HDMI out to the sound systems HDMI in. Then the sound system HDMI out to the TV HDMI in.) If the TV has a DVI port, get an HDMI to DVI cable (again M/M). For this option, you will also need to connect the audio cable (see below in the composite or component video section).

Alternatively, this Blu-ray player has component and composite video out ports. Note: composite video is limited to SD. For these, you will have to connect the audio cables (RCA l/r audio or digital audio out). The composite video cable is included with the blu-ray player when new. For these, match the colors of the jacks to the wires to make sure that you have them correctly connected. You can put the audio cables to your sound system or your TV, as appropriate for your setup. For some TVs, you may need a RCA audio to 3.5 mm cable (all male ends) or adapter (for example RCA F/F to 3.5 mm M with an RCA audio cable or 3.5 mm F to RCA M/M with a 3.5 mm audio patch cable) . This applies for units with only the PC audio in.

Make the connections with the TV and the video player off (turn off the audio system if you are including that set of wiring). Then turn on the TV and set it to the desired input (use the Input/Source button on your remote or TV). Turn on the audio system (if using one) and blu-ray player.

If you have problems, first try different cables. Try other input connections and try different devices. It's possible for either the TV or the blu-ray player input/output jacks or boards were damaged.

I HAVECONNECTED ALL MY SPEAKER WIRES,HDMI CABLEAND CONNECTED THE YELLOW AUDIO CABLE.POWERED UP THE DVD BOX BUT I ONLY GET SOUND FROM TV.the tv is a new 47'' LG.


If you are using HDMI cable you will not be using the YELLOW RCA plug sine the Yellow pug is for composite video. Analog audio uses RED (RIGHT) and WHITE (LEFT) for sound.
How exactly youhave the whole thing setup? through the receiver or just between the TV HDMI port and the HDMI port on the DVD player?
You will also need to setup the HDMI sound set up to send the sound through the HDMI cable or through the audio analog RCA ports.
More info needed. Hook up per DVD and TV user manuals

I have a Dell computer that runs Windows Vista and I want to hook it up to use my TV as a monitor to watch a webcast. Please advise.


The first step is to inspect both your laptop and TV and identify the connections, easily located on the back of either component. There are five basic types of jacks, or ports involved:
*Composite/phono plug (RCA)
*S-Video
*Video graphics array (VGA)
*Digital video interface (DVI)
*High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI)
*An RCA connector, sometimes called a phono connector, is used for analog audio and video components. Three round, colored sockets are standard — left audio is white, right audio is red, and composite video is yellow. These are standard jacks on older TV’s and laptops. A three-prong cable, readily available at any computer or electronics, is the easiest way to make an RCA laptop to TV connection.
*S-Video, or Super-Video, a more advanced analog video connector, uses a four-prong round plug, like those used in TV cable installations. Separate audio cables are the same as for the RCA connector, left audio/white, and right audio/red. S-Video is commonly found on older TV sets and some laptops.
With S-Video on both TV and laptop, connecting a laptop to a TV is a simple matter of a single S-Video cable. If your laptop has a great sound system, you won’t need audio cables, but for better quality you’ll also want audio cables.
RCA to S-Video cable, a special laptop to TV cable, is available when you have RCA jacks on one device and an S-Video port on the other.
*A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable.
*A DVI port is rectangular with 24 pins arranged in three horizontal rows of eight pins for digital video; separate RCA analog audio cables fit into white and red plugs. DVI ports are found on Macintosh laptops; sometimes they are smaller than normal DVI ports and require an adapter, which usually comes with the laptop.
*The HDMI port, one-half the size of the DVI port, is also rectangular with 19 pins. It provides digital audio in addition to digital video, despite it’s smaller size, for a complete TV to laptop connection. These ports are found on new HDTVs, and sometimes there are two or more. TVs with HDMI ports are the only ones that do not require additional audio cables.
TV’s with a single digital port labeled HDMI/DVI require only one cable when the source is another HDMI component. But when source is a DVI laptop, you need a DVI-to-HDMI cable for the video and a separate pair of RCA analog stereo cables.
NOTE: Whenever ports do not match, you can by adaptors and/or cables to make any connection.

Hdmi Port .


If the laptop has no HDMI port, the forget the whole HDMI thing cause getting it through that port when the laptop or desktop is not made for it will end up costing as much as a new computer altogether. You need to find out if the laptop has any Composite or Component outputs. Those are relatively easy to spot. a Composite output is usually a RCA jack and also usually colored yellow, and goes into the yellow RCA port on your TV next to the red and white RCA ports which are the left and right sound channels. The Component outputs are also RCA jacks, but are usually red green and blue cause each wire sends its own color to make up the TV's image. They will also go on the back of your TV near all the other RCA ports. Wether your TV has just HDMI and no other porte or not, or if it has either Composite or Component inputs or both, that i don't know cause i don't know what your TV is. As for the sound, if you also want it on the TV, you just need to go to the local electronics store and buy an adapter/wire that goes from a 1/8 stereo headphone jack to 2 RCA jacks on the other side, one being white and the other being red. See where i'm going with that?:P Plug the 2 RCA jacks from the wire you bought into the TV in the corresponding inputs that go with the input you plugged the image in, and the 1/8 stereo jack into the headphone output of your laptop.
