A toslink is an optical audio cable. Not an rca (red and white plugs) cable. U probably have a digital audio cable....if it has one rc male at each end. Usually denoted by an orange color. It doesn't matter where u are in the world. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: HDMI Cable?

Hi CrysR,

Although you may not be able to locate a cable with one HDMI male end and one USB male end, it is possible you may find a solution with an adapter.

I recommend looking for an adapter that will accept USB input and output to either HDMI or DVI. If you only locate DVI, you can then add a DVI to HDMI adapter at the end.

Be aware with these extra pieces and signal transfers included, it may degrade the quality of your picture.

Thank you,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

SOURCE: cant connect to digitor g4321 computer with vga to vga cable

This may be more of a computer problem then a TV. If I'm right, here's the solution:
Computers don't always recognize video output without a little assistance. You should plug your computer back into your normal computer screen AND your TV at the same time. I guess that only works if your computer has two VGA outputs, but most desktop PCs do. Anyways, once that's done, open up your computers display settings and try to get it to recognize the TV from there (be sure the TV is on the correct input while you do this).
If you need more help with the computer side of this, let me know. Also list your computer's model and your operating system.

SOURCE: I have no sound from

Hi.

A common occurrence is audio circuit getting damaged when you plug/unplug the cables. That is particularly common if you disconnect or connect cables with power on.

Double check cables. Check audio settings and test the TV using headphones (or speakers on audio jack). If speakers work the problem is either settings or the plate with AV connectors, which integrated with main digital board inside TV.

If settings are OK, connections are OK and there is no audio, then the TV is defective. In that case the TV must be tested.

Here extract from service documentation describing testing when there is no sound:

"Check Pin (53) of IC2001Pins (1) and (7) of IC3302, IC3303, IC3304
Are inputs at Pins (2) and (4) as well as outputs at Pins (8) and (12), all of IC3305, as specified?
Check if muting effect is on. Check the FSMUTE line.
Check IC3302- 3304 and their peripheral parts.
Are input and output of IC3301 as specified?
Check IC3304 and its peripheral parts.
Check the line in question, IC3304 and its peripheral part
Check Pin (58) of IC2001

Are outputs at Pins (14) and (15) of IC3501 as specified?
Check the line in question
Check the LMUTE linheck IC3501, IC3301 and its peripheral parts
Is output at Pins (15) and (16) of tuner as specified?
Is input at Pin (67) of IC3301 as specified?
Check IC3304, X3301 and their peripheral partCheck the tuner and its peripheral partCheck Q3201, Q3202 and their peripheral partNo sound from output line."

Regards.

What should I do to make f-pin coax coupler I bought (to link two coax cables to extend the range of my cable box) receive and display cable programs?


Female to female couplers will only connect to a male plug either side. If the two plugs are female you won't be able to do it, till you either change to two males or get a male to male coupler!

I have recently purchased an atari 2600 that came with no rf cable. I understand that using the female phono to male f adapter will work to hook it up, but this leaves me needing to buy the phono cord...


Yes, I know this works because I have done it. I believe both types of cable are the same impedence but different ends so any combination should work. Cheers.

Broken coax connection on back of unit


If you are comfortable doing some small repair work, you might be able to fix this with stuff you have laying around.

All you need is:
1 - 8" piece of coaxial cable with male connector on one end
1 - set of RCA cables (Red/White/Yellow)
1 - coaxial coupler
2 - small wire nuts

electrical tape

Take the back housing off of your TV. You may have to unscrew the small nut holding the threaded connector to the TV. This threaded connector should connect to the motherboard with a male RCA prong that should be soldered to the component on the motherboard. You will need to carefully cut
& remove the old soldering & wiggle the connector off. This is the hardest part, but it WILL come off with a little trying.

Now get your coax cable and strip off about 2" of the black outside housing ONLY. Your solid copper` interior cable should be protected by a small plastic coating which is covered in braided wire. You'll need to be careful not to cut the braiding off. Untangle the braiding down to where your cut stops and try and get it all on one side of the cable so you can twist it all together and make a nice wire. Now strip about an inch off of your interior plastic sheathing to reveal the small solid copper wire on the very inside.

Get your RCA cable and cut about 6" off of the one yellow side. Follow the same process above to get a braided sheathing wire and a solid copper wire. Attach this yellow wire to the coaxial cable by twisting the two braided wires together and the two solid copper wires together. Use your wire nuts & electrical tape to secure your connections making sure none of the wires can touch each other.

Connect the yellow cable's male prong into the component on the motherboard and attach your coaxial coupler to the male end of your coaxial cable. If you saved the small nut from earlier, you can re-attach this new coupler to the housing on your TV. Screw your housing back on the TV and you should be good to go.

Digital to analog converter box hookup


You will have to go to Radio Shack or Wall Mart, maybe Home Depot and get a matching transformer. That will have spade terminals on one end to connect to your tv and a round (75ohm male thread) to hook to your converter box.

We have a SC-HT65 home theater audio system and somehow the display screen is completely black like it has been turned off somehow. How do i get the display screen back on?


I had the same problem here with my SC-HT65 that I bought today. I was trying to connect it to a TiVO DVR, and it was blanking the screen out, and only showing 2 or so seconds of video at poweroff and poweron. After some searching and trialling, I discovered that the HDCP bitstream coming from the TiVO was incompatible with the HDMI decoder on the panasonic. By separating the bitstream AV (I utilised a digital audio connection to separate the AV, whether via coax or toslink(fibre) - I used toslink, the video stream then started working properly. Hope this helps


Cheers

Acer aspire 5910G S/PDIF cable


Hi,

These are Creative Z5500 speakers and you have an audio control panel that allows digital in or analog in, correct?

Digital out is usually marked by a black color ring not green and would have a stamp on it indicating digital or spdif. Digital out and coaxial out are the same thing and are a simple mono male to male mini 1/8 twisted copper cable.

You can use the digital in at the desktop control unit with a mono mini 1/8 male and male cable available at any Radio Shack and also get a mono RCA (any color) male to male adapter. Just explain your needs to the clerk there and they'll set you up.

An optical connection is completely different and makes no difference. The jack is square and usually has a plug in it to keep dust out with a square knob for grabbing it to withdraw the dust plug and put it back in place again. It's best not to bother with these things as they haven't found a place in the market.

Just so you know, you can use the analog out on your laptop to the analog in on the control unit and then select Dolby digital for processing and you won't know the difference. This whole digital thing is blown way out of proportion unless you're working with HD out to HD in on a flat panel TV unit from a Satellite Receiver or Cable Box.

Any other questions just ask away and please don't forget to rate our solutions on FixYa. Thanks.
