There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

How do I hook up my 55 inch led tv to a stereo for better sound


In many cases newer tv's do not have an audio out, some have a headphone jack on the side (Small usually blue)

Otherwise if you are wanting to get better sound from a DVD / Blueray / Satellite / Cable box, You can put the audio from these devices into your sound system, then plug your sound systems audio out into the tv.
The video out from your devices will need to connect directly into the tv.

If using HDMI or S-Video that carries both audio and video, slitter / separation boxes are available, but usually degrade sound and audio quality.

The above would look something like

Cable box audio out (red / white) to Stereo audio IN. >> Stereo Audio OUT to TV audio in.
Yellow (Video) Cable from cable box then goes directly to the TV Video IN. Just make sure the audio and video cables are going to the same section (Some tv's may have multiple audio / video in's

1. Connect the audio cables to the AUDIO OUT L (left - white) and R (right - red) jacks on the back of
your DVD Player, and to the corresponding Audio Input jacks on your TV.
2. Connect the video cable.

What is the audio/video input?


Hi
Audio Video input or [AV] input is meant for to connect the TV to any external device which has AV output. For example, you can connect the TV with a DVD/VCR/Blu-Ray/Amplifier etc. The audio video output of the connectig device has to connect to the audio video input of the TV with an audio video cable. This cable can be bought from most of the electronic sparepart shops. After connectin it such, you have to go to the input selection window of the TV and must select the input of the tV to Audio Video. No tuning or any other adjustment should be done then. Just play the connected device and see the its output by Tv. OK.

My TV has audio (left & right) & video jacks (red,white &yellow) can I connect my Kenwood KR-V5580 to it for stereo sound If so what do I connect it to video 1 or 2, phone,etc


Audio can usually go either way to a TV. In or Out. Why someone would want to hear external audio through a TV's marginal audio electronics and speaker(s) is beyond me, but sometimes that is what they want.

Take the audio from the receiver via whatever unused Tape or Video function connectors you like to the TV's Audio L & R IN. Anything the receiver processes will be audible through the TV as long as you DON'T select that function for listening on the receiver.

Listening to TV-related audio through the receiver and its (presumably better) speakers makes much more sense, but again, the TV's marginally audio capabilites place a serious limitation on sound quality expectations. In your case, stereo is as good as it could be.

If your TV has Audio Out jacks, just run them to any convenient Line Level input (NOT Phono). If your TV has internal audio controls for volume, set it to Fixed so the TV's volume control doesn't affect the sound going out to the Kenwood.

A better TV-related audio solution would be to connect the BEST audio of whatever source you're watching directly from that source to the receiver. Cable, DVD/BD, SAT always have 2-channel analog RCA connectors as well as (unusable on the Kenwood) digital audio outputs.

VIDEO from the Kenwood to the TV:

You describe your TV having Composite (3 -RCA-style cables). The Kenwood is limited to Composite (Lower-quality, single Video RCA-style cable). Check your TV for a single Video In connection and run THAT from the Kenwood's Monitor Out so you can pass other video through the receiver.

In its day this receiver was pretty high-end but to really enjoy modern multichannel audio from video sources you might consider an upgrade to a true multichannel Audio Video Receiver. For one thing it would support digital audio and probably Component and HDMI video. You could still use the Kenwood's amplifiers to drive speakers or as a secondary system.

Cant hook it up to the tv and make sound on speakers


There are a couple of things going on here.

First concept: The physical TV is NOT a good source of audio or video. It's there to turn audio and video from other sources into something your senses can enjoy. Many TV's (monitors) don't even have speakers.

You probably want the TV-related audio to play on your Sony. Your best source is to get it where it comes from. That is NOT the TV, more likely cable or satellite. Draw the best multi-channel audio (digital, if available) from it into the compatible input on the Sony.

The cable box will also have video and analog stereo audio. Run the BEST VIDEO (HDMI or component) to the TV's video and the analog stereo RCA Audio Out to the TV's Audio In so you can watch and hear cable without the Sony if you like.

You could also run the TV's analog Audio Out RCA pair into an AUX input of the Sony, but that would limit whatever you hear to stereo and any audio limitations of the TV.

DVD plugged into red, white and green(Yellow) TV imputs, results


Yeah no color coz its black and white. Color coding commonly yellow wire for video, red and white wire for audio. It should also be from DVD to TV, video out and audio out going to video in and audio in. And switch the TV to play video and the audio inputted. Maybe TV/Video Switch or button.

Hope it helps

There audio but no picture


I don't know how you connect the unit to the tv.
Let's just start on basic:
composite video/audio(yellow-video, white/red-audio) connect to TV composite video/audio input behind the TV.
If the audio works but no picture,try to use another video input behind the tv.if that still doesn't work,use a different video cable!
Good luck!
