No sound from TV only when playing DVD

I have a Samsung TV plus the surround theatre system to go with it. I bought the lead which enabled me to watch DVD's with sound from both the TV and the surround sound, but this has recently stopped working now when I play a DVD I am only getting the sound out of the surround sound not the tv. The TV works fine sound coming from the TV and the surround sound!! Has something been pressed on the remote control?
Many thanks
Tracy Hampton

Re: No sound from TV only when playing DVD

Check carefully the RCA conections or others.Sometimes this conections break inwards end cause this problems.Check also the lead and the Set up from surround sound.Verify if the TV has settings for this kind of operation. A strong hug !!!

My Samsung TV picture is supplied via a HDMI lead

Home theater system connections

I have the same tv but my dvd surround is a toshiba, that shouldn't matter though. When I watch a dvd I go to component 2 which is where I have my dvd connected on the input of the tv when I watch tv and want the surround on I go to component 1 which is the tv input then on my dvd player I go to auxillary and I can watch tv in surround. I don't know the LG home theatre system but you should be able to select your inputs like between dvd, tuner, aux. Flip between them and you should get sound. hope this helps.

Audio via hdmi

Have you tried to hook up your DVD player directly to the surround sound system? If you direct the sound through the TV, it has to pass several circuits and the quality will be lover. Just connect it right away to your sound system. :-)
