One thing you could try: Unplug the power cord for 10 minutes. Hold down power button on side of unit for 30 seconds with power cord out. Plug power cable back in, make sure you have disconnected everything else from the TV except the antenna input. Power back on. If the power comes on, do a system reset operation by going into the menu and selecting it (under the "setup" options).

What else must be done when hooking up a optical plug from TV?

Optical cable is based on light, so make sure there is no break in the cable and that you actually have a good plug. Does any light leak out where it is connected at the TV? Do you have the right setting? Did you select the right option for the device? If in doubt, better check the owner's manual very carefully for selecting the right input. I'm assuming that the TV is in working condition and the device on the other end is functional too.

I have a Sharp Aquos LC-60LE640X TV and I am trying to connect a Samsung HW-H751 Soundbar to it. I have hooked up the optical cable, adaptor and sub woofer, I have tested the Bluetooth function throug

If you are connecting the soundbar to your TV with the digital audio cable, make sure to select "D IN" using the source button on the soundbar. Bluetooth (BT) is a separate source from another device. (phone, etc.) The TV will need to be set to use the digital audio output and probably PCM format. (?) The subwoofer is preconfigured at the factory to mate up with your soundbar. (See below instructions - your soundbar includes the amplifier:)

Digital audio output setting:
After connecting an amplifier with digital audio input and
external speakers as shown, you should set an audio
output format compatible with the programme you are
watching or the device connected.
Go to "HOME" > "TV Menu" > "Setup" > "Option" >
"Terminal setting" > "Digital audio output" > select
"PCM" or "Bitstream".
• When set to "Bitstream", Dolby Digital is output when the Dolby
Digital or Dolby Digital Plus audio formats are received. When
set to "PCM", PCM is output no matter what audio formats are
• When set to "Bitstream", HE-AAC audio formats can be output
as Dolby Digital.

How to plug my external speakers to my viera tv

This television only outputs digital audio called PCM / Dolby Digital, Fiber Optic so you may need an amplifier that has a digital in port (if the speakers are rca red and white cable plugs then the amplifier needs rca output ports). Then you would need to connect the amplifier to the speakers
. Unless the speakers have a digital in port which I am unsure on ,. The digital out audio port on your tv uses a fibre optic digital audio cable..
page 13 of the user manual shows this digital output port.

Sound bar compatibility

Make sure red glow is coming from TV's Opt out cable when TV is on. If it is, it is working. The best solution is use an LG soundbar with an LG TV. There is a differnce in digital outputs and with a "service remote" (used by authorized LG servicers) you might be able to change the TVs factory setting to make the vizio soundbar work. but I think you'll be better off with the LG soundbar.

I recently bought a toshiba 40E210 lcd i just would like to ask if there is an additional audio output aside from the digital optical audio output?

Hi well NO I don't think that this unit has any other audio outputs? or "Monitor" as they are called, simply check the rear of the unit and the manual and see if there is any external outputs or "Monitor" Audio out, if there is it will be via Red & White RCA Jacks, these can be used to output to speakers or surround sound decoder. However this shouldn't be a problem as if you simply want to use this output, just obtain a Optical to standard audio output converter, and then you will be able to use this output in the regular way. And hook up to speakers or surround sound decoders as well. If you son;t have a manual, i suggest it will be a good idea to obtain one, approach the manufacturer or go to the website and look for one all info about the set will be in there.

Is there a reset button? My son tried to plug the computer into our Vizio tv and now there is no power - it doesn't come on. I think he inserted something into the "service" plug.

We have a 42" LCD, model E421VA that had a problem. I called Vizio and they told me how to reset the TV. Unplug the TV from the power source, press and hold the TV power button (located on the TV) in for 30 seconds, then plug the TV back in and turn it on. Good Luck

I was doing something on my PS3 and it asked me if I wnted to perform some sort of function and I said yes with out thinking. Now my TV and another TV I tried search for the HDMI signal and can't find...

ok, try this, disconnect your ps3 entirely, including power, then plug in the HDMI FIRST, then the power cable, the device will enter standby mode, turn the device on and see if that works. if it doesnt repeat what i just said but instead of turning it on hold the power button for 8-10 seconds. this resets the device to origional setting and when it turns on it should detect that the HDMI is the only connected media, thus selecting it as the primary output. Hope This Helps!

Picture had yellow tint and now there is no picture and red light is blinking next to lamp

Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.
Sony TVs has an Optical Block issue. If there is an issue with the optical block, then there will be green, blue patches or tint on the TV display. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings and try Power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue still persists, then TV may require service. You can contact the Customer relations team and check for the available options. Sony had repaired free of cost for such issues. Hence, contact the customer relations.
