I don't have a direct solution but I am having the same problem when connecting (1) my Apple TV (2) my Blu-Ray player, etc. via HDMI. I also have a digital camera that puts out HDMI, and when I hook it up, I get the same story -- video only, no sound through the optical digital output of the TV receiver.

I am guessing that the HDMI inputs were an afterthought on this model, especially since the printed manual doesn't even show or mention the HDMI inputs at all! So my guess is that the TV's receiver does not convert the sound from the HDMI to the optical digital output. It does, however, send the amplified HDMI sound to the stereo speaker outputs on the monitor. It appears that only the digital tuner's 5.1 sound comes out on the optical digital output.

This is what I have observed, for what it's worth.

LG sound bar connected to Pioneer TV by optical cable not working


1. if you have something else that you can test the optical wire on. do that first. dvd player etc... if the test item works, it's the sound bar (or a setting in the sound bar.)

2. check the audio settings on your t.v. make sure it's set to output to optical.

3. replace the wire.

if none of these solve the problem, the t.v.'s optical output may be bad.

How do i connect head phones to pioneer pdp 5071pu TV


This model has no headphone out put. In the rear panel there are two monitor audio outputs which could drive headphones, but I think the volume output to a possible monitor matches the tv loudspeaker output, and may not turn off the audio separately.

Tv hit by tennis ball and now there is sound but no picture. Can it be fixed?


If it hit the screen unit and the display panel is bad, it could show not not show a crack but be toast inside, the part would cost more than a new set.

It does not take much of a impact to cause damage to the display panel.

Hi, My Pioneer PDP 506XDE made a loud cracking noise and now the top half of the screen has no picture but shows only a green film . Bottom half of display is fine


The screen has broken, probably a stress crack waiting to happen from the day the plasma panel was manufactured. It will cost less to replace the TV completely than to have a replacement 50" screen fitted. In the six years or so since your tv was manufactured the screen technology has evolved significantly, fitting a new panel may not even be possible without other major component changes.

The new tv will have a new warranty, but just fitting a new screen will typically get you a maximum 90 day warranty.

I have no sound through my surround sound when playing ps3


The optical audio out from the TV only works for the TV's tuner, probably. Hook-up optical from Cable/SAT and from PS3 boxes to DVD/Receiver.
