1. if you have something else that you can test the optical wire on. do that first. dvd player etc... if the test item works, it's the sound bar (or a setting in the sound bar.)

2. check the audio settings on your t.v. make sure it's set to output to optical.

3. replace the wire.

if none of these solve the problem, the t.v.'s optical output may be bad.

Just purchased Rico bos90. Put optical cable from my lg tv to the optical on the sound bar. No sound whatsoever


You may need to configure either the TV settings or the sound bar to use the optical connection. If both have HDMI connections, you might consider that connection method as an alternative.

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 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.

Have lg 55ls5700 tv trying to connect samsung hw-f450


I suspect that the TV you have does not support the ARC function that the sound bar has. What you may have to do is use the Optical In from the sound bar to the TV and you should be good to go. You may have to change the TV's settings to use the Optical In though. So you should end up with the BluRay Player connected to the TV via an HDMI cable, the sound bar connected to the TV via the Optical In using a fiber optic cable. Hope this helps.

I have an LG DVD Reciever HT462 which i want to connect to my PS3. My PS3 is all set up correct as I have spoke with Sony. I have the PS3 connected via a HDMI cable to my TV and an optical cable running...


Hi there,
It would appear from what you have said that you have everything connected properly. Maybe a silly question, but make sure you select the digital input on your LG to get the sound from the PS3. If there is still no joy, unplug the optical from the back of the LG unit. Look at the end of the Optical cable that should still be connected to the ps3. Is there what looks light a red light there? if so it means that the optical is getting to the LG system and the LG sytem's digital in port is Duff. If there is no "Red Light", unplug it from the PS3 and look directly at the optical out port on the ps3. Is there a Red Light there? if there is, you need a new optical cable. If there is no red light, you need to enable the digial output on the ps3. If you have and it's still not "red". the optical port is duff.
