Question about Zenith D52WLCD 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Variable audio out has no output

I hooked up a home theater system to the variable audio out jacks in my Zenith M52W56LCD TV, but the speakers do not work. The system works when connected directly to the cable box audio output jacks. I also connected the TV audio out jacks to the input lines of a portable stereo system, and there was no sound either.

It appears that the out jacks just do not work, or there is something about "variable" audio out that I do not understand, or there is a setting that is not configured right.

    I tried to shut off the t v speaker and still no sound thro audio out to external speaker. I dont understand the concept of audio out jacks with variable/fixed; (and I tried all possible variations and yet no success) if you cannot hook an external speaker to it. Can some help in case I need to do something different.

I want to hook headphone to my Sharp's 32SB24U TV. I plugged in to audio jack, but the sound is not coming out from headphone. It's still coming out from TV's speaker. Do I need to do someting...


That jack is meant for connecting to Home Theater Systems or to computers not for headphones but it may still work. If you go to your menu and find Output Select change this option to variable. On the off chance it works you might want to be careful when testing... it may lead to sudden deafness if its too loud. By the way this will turn off the sound coming from your speakers.

Hope that helps!

I have a LG LHB335 Blu-Ray home theater system, & a LG TV I can get Full surround sound when the blu-ray is play a DVD but not when just watching Reg TV. I use a HDMI, should I hook up sonething else ?...


LG documentation states:

When you use SIMPLINK function, you have to

connect to the OPTICAL IN 1 jack to enjoy TV
sound to your speaker system.

Basically you need to have the Audio go from TV to receiver and setup receiver to that Input to output surround sound to all speakers.

If you have a cable box or satellite receiver, hook that output into the receivers input and that should work.

My setup is DirectTv HDMI output goes into the LG Home Theater HDMI Input 1, and LG goes HDMI output into the TV HDMI input 1.
so to watch DirectTV, I switch LG Home theater to HDMI Input 1. and TV is on HDMI input 1 (to view LG HDMI output from DriectTV, Blu-Ray, Vudu, etc.)

Can't get surround sound for tv shows


The coby dvd 988 has 2 rca audio input jacks, you need to have these connected to your TV AUDIO OUT jacks, these are usually colored red and white like right and left stereo jacks, be sure to set up the TV for AUDIO output through these connections, some tv`s require that the internal built in speakers are cancelled and the audio output jacks are enabled. Set the coby input signal to receive the port you pluged the tv signal into.

Connection


Your TV should have an audio output which are red and white colored jacks, labeled audio out, on the back of your TV. There are also be the same inputs on the home theater system. You would have to buy an RCA cable which is inexpensive. You can then connect the TV from the audio out jack to the AUX 1 or 2 jack on the rear of your home theater system. Then select the AUX 1 or 2 input option (the one you hooked the cable into in the rear) on the home theater system, and you should be in business.

No sound from tv through unit


You may have to enter TV menu and see if you have a AUDIO setup option, some TV`s you have to enable TV AUDIO OUTPUT, this cancels the built in tv speakers and engages the AUDIO OUTPUT jacks on the TV

Instalation


You need to check the back of your home theater for an input jack (it could be labeled tv in or aux in). Then check your tv for audio out jacks. Use a quality rca patch cable from the tv to the home theater. The tv may need to be switched from variable to fixed audio out on the audio menu of the tv. If it is an older or inexpensive tv in may not have the output capabilities.

Check the setup menu on your TV. Many models require that you choose between using the internal speakers and using the speaker outputs. Sometimes the TV menu choices are "FIXED" (audio output) or "VARIABLE" (internal speakers).

Wiring with a sattelite receiver and new Samsung TV


Nope RamaTheMan - you are incorrect! No way to get an actual surroundsound from your TV on this turd - this came straight from the Samsung FAQ -

"You cannot get surround sound from your television. On the other hand, if your television has audio output jacks you can connect your TV or Set Top Box to your Home Theater System and get stereo sound (that is, sound from the left and right speakers of your Home Theater System only).
To connect your TV or STB audio output jacks to your Home Theater System and get stereo sound, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off your TV and Home Theater System.
  2. Connect the Audio Out jacks on your TV to the External Audio Input jacks on the back of your Home Theater System. The External Audio Input connectors are typically labeled AUX IN. Note: There are usually two pairs of Audio Input jacks, AUX 1 and AUX 2. Each pair has a jack for the left audio input and the right audio input. Often, there are two Video AUX IN jacks as well. You can plug the audio cables into either audio AUX 1 or AUX 2. See the following diagram.
    auxin.jpg
  1. Turn on your TV and Home Theater System.
  2. Press the Function Button on the front panel of your Home Theater System until the display on your Home Theater System shows AUX 1 or AUX 2.
For advanced installation, if you are using a High Def STB, you can connect an OPTICAL connection from the STB to the HTS. This is a specified cable that must be purchased separately.
In either instance, you must then set the HTS to its auxiliary input. (i.e AUX 1, AUX 2, DIGITAL IN) in order to get the sound from the HTS.
Note: If your television does not have Audio Out jacks, you may be able to get stereo sound by attaching the Audio Out jacks on your VCR to either the AUX 1 or AUX 2 audio inputs on your Home Theater System. If you attach your VCR to AUX 1 or AUX 2, you will have to tune your television to channel 3 or 4, and then tune to the station you want to watch on your VCR."
