Most PCs only have stereo 3.5mm audio jacks (to plug headphones / computer speaker systems etc. into). Conversely, most TVs have only phono (RCA) inputs for sound usually color-coded Left (white), Right (red) which are paired with a composite video input (Yellow).

So, you would probably be OK with a 3.5mm to stereo phono cable such as

How do I connect my TV to a sound system?

In the absence of audio out it should be possible to use the scart socket by using a converting scart lead or adapter that provides a pair of phono leads or sockets.

Alternatively use the headphone socket to drive an amplifier or preamplifier designed to handle large outputs at very low impedance, similar to the active speakers used with computers.

No sound when I hook the HDMI cable from my laptop to my Hisense LCD 32 in tv

I don't know the settings/menu of your tv, but for me I use a headphone jack to rca lead. The headphone end plugs into sound output like headphones and rca plugs into audio amplifier. Lead available at electrical/home entertainment retailer. If your computer has digital audio compatible with your tv you may be able to try that.

DVD is playing but no sound is coming out. Where do you put the video cords from the player to the TV. We have an older Sharp tv

What is the model of your DVD Player? and does your old Sharp TV have jack plugs in the back to accept audio leads.

Normally you would connect a Scart lead from the DVD player to the back of your Sharp TV.

If your Sharp TV is so old that it does not have a Scart Socket then you may have to use an RF lead running from the RF out Socket from your DVD player to your Sharp TV!

I am trying to hook-up KLH pro 21 speakers to our Sylvania LC420SS8 tv, but have not been successful. Where do I plug in the speakers?

Where you plug in the speakers depends on many things like where is the source of the sound coming from? Is it a cable box? Do you want just the sound from the tv itself to come to your speakers? If you want the sound of the cable then you need to connect them to the out going leads on the back of the cable box.

The tv probably has a small button some where on the back to use external speakers. If your running the cable signal into the tv, turn on the external speaker option and then use the out going leads to send the signal to your speakers. There may also be a signal input/output choice in your tv settings. click on the different choices of in put to see if you hear through the speakers to figure out which one is for them. The choices are usually listed as AUX, Antenna 1, Antenna 2, ect.

Connected samsung TV to PC vi VGA cable as suggested by samsung support. Visual working correctly, no sound output. Tried hooking up standard audio jack leads with l-r splitter to TV to get audio. No...

You need a seperate speaker system when your tv is on vga there is no option to recieve a sound input. In fact if you hook your cables for sound back up to the tv you will probably find that there is sound but on a diffrent input channel. The other option is to use a diffrent type of connection like hdmi if your computer and tv support it which DOES support audio and vido throught the TV.

Umi freeview dvd tv combo to surround sound

I am not familiar with the manufacture and model of your TV set. This does appear to be a compatibility issue between the TV set and its DVD player, and the surround speaker system. The TV set may not be able to directly send the proper information to the speakers. I would consider to call the manufacture support people to have a definate answer.

Sharp television and panasonic cinema system with hdmi connection

Ok, here's the deal. You can have sound being putout from hdmi coming from one of those sharp units, but it just depends on how you are connected. If you are using a digital audio output, from the tv, it wont push out the sound the way that it should. You will have to downgrade to using audio composite cables to connect to your external speaker system from the audio ouputs, not the digital audio outputs. Its not designed to push out sound from an hdmi cable. The BEST way to have this setup is to run your sound directly from the cinema to the external audio source(leaving the hdmi cable in the tv).
