I need help in connecting my audio video system correctly once and for all.
I just moved my system to another area in my house so I disconnected all cables and labeled wires so I wont make any mistakes when I reconnect it. Well, I guess I did something wrong so the dvd player has no video and but it has sound. Anyway I just want to get it all right once and for all. Ok, I have a Philips wide screen plasma, JVC dvd player, sony dvd-video player, comcast cable box and 2 front and a center speaker. Right now the tv is playing via vcr1 6 ch. It used to play by tv/dbs, what happened?

Its an indication that your system is overheating and a short circuit exists so the shutdown - disconnect all inputs and speaker connections and switch-on if still the same happens then the system has an internal error
Have you enabled the external speaker option on your TV and the set isn't on Mute? Check that you have the surround system's receiver set to the correct input. Next, check the audio level. On some sources for the TV, I need the volume at 65. Other sources sound fine with the receiver at 45. Check that the audio matches that being sent by the TV. On my TV, I needed to go to the Menu > Audio Settings to find the option for turning on the external speakers. Then I had to set the speaker system to Multi-Channel for our specific setup. (There were several options, including Dolby. For my specific setup, these other options didn't give the correct sound.) Finally try a different audio cable between the TV and the receiver.
I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the make and model number of your TV for additional advice. Adding the type of connection (digital audio (optical/coaxial), HDMI, RCA) will help me suggest potential problem areas.
Hi, You are not alone...Sometimes HDMI connections fail to provide Audio on some equipment ... You should carry Audio separately with a RCA cable.. OR without HDMI ,you can make the following connections: ** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your DVD ** to "AUX input "
or "DVD " OR "Any input" of your receiver ( except Phone ) or "Optic Cable input" ** than just switch to
respective mode on RECEIVER corresponding your RCA or Optic connection... There you go..Both DVD sound and Video are on the Receiver..
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know. Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)
the back of the system, you will find Video out, then Audio out
(left and right). Connect the yellow cord to video out, and the white
& red to Audio out appropriately.
Then connect the other end
of the yellow cord to "Video in" at the back of the TV, then the red and
white to audio in at the back of the TV.
After connecting as
directed above, turn on the TV, then turn on the system. On the TV
remote control, press "AV" or "Source" depending on what is written on
the remote and there should be a display. If there is no display, press
the "AV" or "Source" on the remote once or twice more and there should
be a display of the receiver's welcome screen on the TV. You might also need to press "Source" on the system's remote if there no display.
know if you don't av display even after following the above steps. The
above is the correct way of connecting so it should work.
The White and Red cords stands for Audio left and right, while the
yellow cord stands for Video. The yellow is suppose to allow your system
display on the TV screen, while the Red and White is to bring out
If you have a coax (antenna or some cable systems) to the TV, then you need to connect the surround sound system to the audio out of the TV. Depending on the TV, the output could include Digital audio, RCA audio (red/white) or a headphone jack. Without knowing which LG TV model, I can't be sure which ones you have. Get the best cable for your TV/receiver system and connect that. Then set the TV to use the external speakers.
If the source is a set-top box, then the cables should run HDMI from the box HDMI out to the receiver HDMI in and then from the HDMI out of the receiver to the HDMI in on the TV. (Most TVs do not have HDMI out.) If the unit still doesn't play the audio, first try new cables and make sure the correct source is selected (some receivers have multiple HDMI in). Make sure the speaker cables are all connected (if they have separate connections) and that everything has power. (One of the usual speaker system problems in my house is loose cables from someone knocking against the back of the entertainment center and pulling.)
If you need more help, please provide more information on your equipment. I will do my best to help you diagnose the problem.
Yeah - that's a tough one. We've all been there before - often more than just once, too. There's no easy way to do it - you're just going to have to "**** it up" and gently twist the unit to a point that you can stick your head in enough to actually see the connection panel. If there's room, shine a bright light into the area and use a mirror to assist making the connections or disconnections you need.
If the mirror method doesn't cut it - you'll have to move it. Once moved, make the disconnects and connections you needed to do and reconnect any connections that pulled out when turned. You might consider labeling the cables to match the name of the jack on the amp that they're connected to - to make it easier next time.
If you have to do the whole thing over and your amp is in an enclosed cabinet, you might want to remove the back panel. Use 4 to 6 strips of wood each about 3/4 to 1 inch square by 3 or 4 inches long and secure them with screws to the cabinet, then secure the back panel to these wood strips with screws. The purpose of this is to allow you to work on the amp interconnections with other components easily from the back. Cables that leave the cabinet need not be passed through holes, as there is an opening all the way around the back panel. This helps allow heat to escape very nicely. You can slide the cabinet out and remove a half dozen screws and get to the rear of the amp very easily any time you need this way.
