Hi,
Did you make sure you have the audio out from whatever you are trying to listen to going to the correct audio input on the back of the tv? Then you went into the tv's menu and turned the speakers on correct? Does the menu show them as on? If you need further assistance please let me know and I will be glad to assist you.
Thank you,
Lee

    Ok,
    and are you using a cable box? what type of audio cables are you using from the cable box to the tv? are they going to the corresponding input of the video?
    Thank you,

How do I connect Samsung smart TV to a Yamaha receiver and get sound to come out of surround sound speakers?


Generally you will connect the Digital audio or optical audio cable from TV to the input of Receiver. Then using the remote control of Receiver you will program the source for digital audio or optical audio as TV. I am assuming the speakers on the receiver are already connected and working. All you do is then turn on TV and turn on Receiver and select TV on Receiver. The TV audio will play through the receiver. Make sure the TV sound is in Mute.

Hi i have recently got a lg surround system without a manual, i think all the speakers are set up correctly as i have done a sound test on it and they all seem to make noise however i am having trouble...


You should have 2 RCA jacks on your TV and on the back of your receiver ... a white and a red. These are the left and right audio jacks. Generally, I hook up the audio out from the TV to the DVD player, then from there into the receiver ... this makes it easier to turn off the connection to your receiver if you want to use the TV speakers for news and whatever (by turning the DVD player off). Once the RCA cables are all hooked up, the information should have no problem transferring to your surround sound receiver. Now that the connections are all made, check the settings on your receiver. Make sure that you have the surround sound turned on, and that the receiver has all speakers selected (hunt through the menus and find the "dolby 5.1" or "THX" surround options and turn one on. This SHOULD resolve the problem.
If this did not repair your issue, make sure that all of your equipment that you are running through is all capable of surround sound (if you have a really cheap DVD player like me, it may not be able to handle surround sound). If your TV is surround capable (LCD, Projection, and Plasma TVs are usually all capable of this ... CRT tvs are not always capable) but your DVD player is not, hook your TV's audio RCA cables directly to your surround sound receiver and you should be set. If your TV and DVD player are not capable of Dolby or THX surround sound, then you will probably not be able to use that feature, so your satellite speakers might not work, but the main left and right should still work fine.
One other thing that I have had issues with in the past is the connections on the back of the receiver. If you are using speaker wire (a lot of newer systems have input jacks instead of wire because they are easier to deal with) then make sure you have stripped enough of the wire to make a good connection in the back of your receiver. If you have too little wire exposed, or if you have pushed the wires in too far, the insulator on the wire will block the connection. To be sure this is not the case, be sure that only the exposed part of the wire is sticking into the back of your receiver. Also, make sure that you are not trying to run too much wire between the receiver and the speakers -- if you have a 100ft wire between the system and the speakers, they might not be getting a strong enough signal to work -- you can buy a signal amplifier for your speaker wire, or you can use a shorter wire.
Most likely you have to find the settings in your menu and turn on the other speakers. If the sound test worked for all of the speakers, the connections are all good, and it is the system not telling the speakers to work.

Can not get my surround sound system to work with Sharp LC-40F22E using usual audio cable, sound still comes through the tv speakers and can not find how to turn tv speakers of or tell the tv to use...


The way to turn off the tv speakers is to press the menu button scroll to the option category navigate to output select and choose variable. However just turning off the tv speakers will not cause the surround sound system to work with this television. Connecting the red and white composite audio cables to the television's OUTPUT will get you stereo sound. Some people opt to keep the tv's speakers turned on when doing this. In order to get the digital optical out to work between the television and the surround sound system you will have to be using input tv. You will have to be using the television's tuner with digital cable no cable box or with an over the air antenna. Did you make sure you connected the red and white cable to the surround sound aux or any composite input and choose the right function on it?

How do I turn off the tv speakers so that I may use surround sound?


Depending on the model TV, there may be a switch on the back to turn the speakers off, or there may a choice on the audio on-screen menu to turn them off. Not all sets allow you to turn the speakers off, but you can always mute the sound, although this sometimes leaves the word "MUTE" on the screen to remind you. You can also just turn the volume all the way down on the TV. If you're using the AV inputs on the TV with a device like a DVD player, another option is to connect the video only to the TV, and feed the audio to the amplifier providing surround sound. Then the TV speakers won't be used at all.

NO OWNERS MANUAL


Go to there website to download the pdf version of the manual.

If that does not help look on the back and you should see optical out, audio out type connectors.

Most effective way would be to buy a surround sound amp and connect it via an optical out to the surround sound amp and the surround sound amp will have the connectors for the surround sound speakers.

Lg 47 inch tv sound


We had the same problem of pathetic sound quality and volume with a sony brava. Thats just the way they make tv's these days because most people buy a surround sound system as well. We bought logitec computer surround sound speakers for about $140 and plugged into the ear jack, problem solved, we have heaps of volume and stacks of bass.

Help getting sound from New Sony LCD Television Model XV HTD520 DVD Player with Surround Sound S HTD520


While I could not find it in the manual, I found that you must
go to the menu, open Sound Options and set Speakers to "Fixed".

Note: If you turn off the Surround Sound or DVD player combination you must then go back to the menu and turn the speakers back to Televsion.

Vizio L42HDTV10A sound problems


In my case, turning the surround sound OFF is what fixed the problem. The bass contibutes most to the perception of the location of a sound. If surround is ON without surround speakers connected, the internal TV speakers can only take the place of what would be the front speakers in a surround system. So turn surround OFF and set your bass preference wherever you want it. That worked for me.
