Using different speakers for TV

I have a Samsung LCD TV and wish to connect a pair of computer type speakers and disable the TV speakers. I have a standard audio jack and a 2 pin AV adaptor. Can't find where to plug it in so it works. TV is a LA55A950D1FXXY LED/LCD. Doesn't appear to have a headphone jack and can't see any audio/out plug other than an ''optical audio output'' whatever that is. Unusual fitting. Appreciate any help.

    I am following it up with Samsung to see what they have to say about it. Lack of a headphone jack is quite remiss.

If it does not have anything besides optical it will not work unless you have a system capable of optical input (some Logitechs have it, but don't remember which ones, i know that the Z-5500 does certainly have it but that's not too cheap).

Weird that it doesn't have a a headphone jack indeed. But if it doesn't, that optical digital out is the only way to connect it.

I obtained a pair of Yamaha YST MS50 speakers with no subwoofer. Can they be adapted to use a different sub, such as the inexpensive Yamaha YST MSW5? The clear problem is in different cabling.

Rca grounding sound with samsung smart tv


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.

Please give more details. if you are trying to connect a pair of speakers to a samsung monitor, then you need to use one with built in speakers. Then it will have an audio out. Otherwise, plug the speakers in to the computer the same as the rest of us. But if you are trying to connect your speakers to a TV then connect using either the headphone socket or use the RCA (red and white) connectors on the TV.

My view sonic monitor has no sound


Troubleshooting Sound Issues Verify that the audio cable is connected to the AUDIO OUT or LINE OUT output on the Sound Card and plugged into the AUDIO IN or LINE IN of the Monitor.   Make sure there are no cables connected to the Headphone Jack (located next to the AUDIO IN port) on the monitor. If there is, please disconnect that cable and try the speakers again. Connecting a cable to the Headphone Jack disables the speakers. If there is no cable connected into the Headphone Jack, test a pair of headphones into that jack to see if you can hear sound out of the headphones. If you are able to hear sound out of the headphones, disconnect the headphones and try the speakers again.   Verify that the Mute on the monitor is not on or the Volume is not turned down.    Verify that the Mute on the computer is not on or the Volume is not turned down.<    If there is still no audio from the monitor's speakers, connect the Audio cable to another audio source like a portable CD player or tape player headphone output. If audio can be heard through the monitor's speakers, then there may be an issue with the computers sound card.    Connect another set of computer speakers (if available) or headphones to the AUDIO OUT or LINE OUT output on the Sound Card. If NO audio can be heard then there is an issue with the sound card. Verify with the computer's manufacturer for additional assistance.   LCD TVs Troubleshooting No Sound from a LCD TV No Sound when using RGB (when connected to a PC) Confirm the audio cable is plugged into the Audio in on the LCD TV and the audio out on the computer. Note: On the N1700W use the GREEN mini-jack; on this model Audio is SHARED between DVI and RGB, there is only 1 audio channel for data connections. The N1700w is designed to take a 1.0v RMS audio signal for optimal sound quality.   Confirm that both the LCD TV Mute and Windows Mute are off. A general message will be displayed on screen to indicate status of Mute (On or Off).   Press the Volume Up Button on the monitor or remote to confirm the Volume is not set to zero.   Confirm that PC volume is sufficient by using Windows/Macintosh Volume adjustment settings.   Try plugging another audio source such as a CD or Cassette Player directly into the Audio port on the LCD TV to confirm the speakers work, or try plugging headphones or external speakers into the sound card on the Computer. If the Headphones or External Speakers do not work, contact the manufacturer of your Computer for further support. No Sound when using S-Video/Composite/ Component Video Confirm the audio cable is plugged into the Audio in on the LCD TV and the audio out on the S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device.   Confirm Mute is off. A general message will be displayed on screen to indicate status of Mute (On or Off).   Press the Volume Up Button on the LCD TV or Remote to confirm the Volume is not set to zero.   Try plugging headphones or external speakers into the audio port on the S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device. If the Headphones or External Speakers do not work, contact the manufacturer of your S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device.   Note: Some ViewSonic monitors do not include speakers.

I just got a new samsung tv and the audio out is different from my old one. i used to be able to connect my cinemates red and white cables to the red and white jacks for the audio out. however, my new tv...


That's probably a digital out. I'm really surprised it doesn't left/right standard output in addition. Are you using a separate AV receiver? If so, and it's a new model, it should have a digital audio input, and then you could send your signal out to your speaker system.

The digital audio connection uses a unique type of connector and a special cable.

If your TV has a red/white pair out from another source, you should be able to select on a menu which audio output to utilize.
