Question about Toshiba Televison & Video
"Toshiba 50" smart tv 120HZ 1080P model #50L3400UC Speakers Hammacher Rechargeable Indoor/Outdoor Wireless Speaker 2.4 GHz Radio Transmitter. I plugged in the red and white jacks to the back of the tv but got no sound. I know the speakers work as i had them hooked up to my computer. Then tried the tv to no avail."
Model of both the TV and speakers, please. For example, without the model of the TV how is anyone supposed to know which inputs/outputs it has?
Edit: Dan, Thanks for providing the model numbers. I was hoping the solution would be something simple like switching the audio from internal to external speakers in the TV settings. However, when I looked at the owner's manual http://support.toshiba.ca/support/ceg/manuals/LEDTV/40-50L3400UC_E.pdf it appears that the rca jacks you tried on the back of the TV are inputs for old VCRs, DVD players etc. rather than an output which would be needed to send an audio signal to your speakers. In this case you will need to use the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT on the back on the TV. In order to use this you will need to purchase an Optical Digital Toslink Coaxial to Analog RCA converter. Make sure it uses a larger Toslink connector and not a mini one. The Toslink cable will plug into the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT on the back of your TV and then be plugged into the converter device. Your white and red RCA cables will go between the converter and your speaker transmitter unit. In addition the converter will have a power adapter that needs to be plugged into a wall outlet. There may need to be some audio settings changed in the TV menu to get this to function properly. It's best to buy from a retailer with a good return policy just in case it doesn't work.
Hope this helps.
