Check the menu. In almost flat panel tvs there is setting that allow you to select in between internal speaker and external speaker. If the selected setting is external speaker the you wont get sound from the internal speakers. www.electro-medical.blogspot.com
Did You Try To Make Shure That The Port Is On For The Speekers To Work? I Ask Because The Speekers Are Connected To The Sound Card Thru A Sound Output Port On The Sound Card And On The PC Somware You Have An App That You Can Open Where You Can Ajust The Settings For The Sound Card Including The INPUT/OUTPUT Ports On It And They Can Be Turned Off And On Indivduly! So Try That And See If That Works!
Depends. What are you hooking external speakers to? Car radio? If the speakers do not exceed the output of the radio, you can directly hook speakers up to the radio by connecting 2 wires. If they do exceed the radio output, you will need an amplifyer.
first, i wonder what you are trying to watch? a dvd player? a cable box? do you have your cable directly to the tv? if you try a different source, do you get sound?
on the tv, if you go into menu and sound options, did the speakers somehow get turned off?
or, is there a switch at the rear of the tv to allow your tv speakers to act as a center channel? if so it may have been hit and switched off the speaker output. my tv has one located right where all the connections are and i've hit it accidentally a couple times.
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.
if you hook the low-level audio-out from the tv to an input to the stereo unit, whatever you play on tv will send audio to surround/stereo reciever unit. look on back of tv for red &white AUDIO OUTPUT terminals. plug red/white audio cables from tv to the back of your stereo & plug into audio input of an open source on stereo (tv/video,aux. in,etc.) good luck!
No, that's not going to work. Digital output is just that....Digital. Your trying to send a digital into analog....won't work. Your tv don't have red and white audio out. That's what you hook to, but it still wouldn't be 5.1. Your out of luck my friend. The ONLY way you'll get 5.1 out of that T.V. is to get a 5.1 reciever with CO-AX digital input...the SAME as whats on your T.V. You can only hook-up sound to your X-FI with the line in jack using a y-connector and 1/8" stereo plug....and it won't ever be 5.1. It can't that way. Only way to get 5.1 to work on the blaster is with the tosh-link optical input cable. This too is digital, but uses optics to send it. Remember, you are playing with 2 different formats. Analog with your white/red thing you made and then digital. Digital using co-ax or optical tosh-link. Completely different.....as you now know.
I had what may have been a similar problem and even talked to Westinghouse to see what I was doing wrong. Woman suggested there was a problem with the audio output port and suggested I exchange tv for another one. When the new one had the same problem, I discovered that to get audio out requires the volume to be turned way up on the tv (set speaker preference to external only if you don't want sound from tv speakers as well). If you have a digital optical connection on both the tv and the home theater, the sound output is independent from the tv setting and is easier to work with.
