Connection help with receiver and lcd TV

I posted this problem initially in the wrong section. I hope this is the correct one. Anyway, here is the problem:I have a Denon avr1508 receiver and I would like to connect to my Sony KDL40v3000. I've read the instructions with the TV and the rceiver. The Sony set-up manual says to connect a HDMI cable from the TV's HDMI IN port to the receiver's HDMI OUT port. It also shows a cable going from DIGITAL OUT (OPTICAL)on the TV to the receiver's DIGITAL AUDIO (OPTICAL.
My Denon receiver set-up shows an HDMI cable going from the Video Out on the TV to the HDMI MONITOR OUT on the receiver and thats all, no other cable connection.
All this to say, I cannot get sound out of the surround sound speakers. If I just use the receiver I get sound, when I use the TV I get sound out of the TV speakers.

How to troubleshoot lcd tv

If you are using the ANTENNA input mode of the TV and should be receiving a local station on a properly chosen channel then something is wrong with the RF or IF section inside the TV. If you can connect an external video source to the TV see if that works while selecting the proper input mode.

No audio output

If you do a factory initialization, nothing wrong could happen, except with its tuning settings. All the setting in the memory will be cleared, and the set will work as if it has been bought new. You should have to re-tune it and do all personalized settings again. That's all. In my view, for this case, doing a factory initialization will be better. If you do not get audio even after factory initialization, you should have to check its mother board's audio processor section circuit for the fault. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

Hi,Even though you have done some cabling already,for the sake of correct connection I describe all the possible cabling alternatives to you..You can select whichever you want..

** Receiver's "AUDIO and VIDEO OUTPUT as " 2xRCA Audio+1x Video " or "Optic Cable OUTPUT or " HDMI Output " of your Home Theater Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the existing sockets and necessary cables on your hand )
** AT TV side : you need to connect "Audio+ Video input s " as can either be : 3xRCA jacks or "Optic cable input " or HDMI IN connector of your TV ,
** than just switch to DVD mode on Receiver and play DVD
You can use "HDMI" connections as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio..

** AT TV side : you need to connect "Audio Output " as can either be : 2xRCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or HDMI connector of your TV ,
** to Receiver's "TV input "or "AUX input" or "Optic Cable input"
or HDMI of your Home Theater Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the existing sockets and necessary
cables on your hand )
** than just switch to respective SOURCE mode on
Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver ..
You can use "HDMI" connections as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio..

Pls remember.."IN " goes to "OUT" or vice versa..all the times..

There you go..Both Tv and DVD sound are on the
Receiver as SURROUNDING SOUND .By this means ,whatever you watch on the TV will come thru your Receiver's SURROUNDING SOUND speakers as well .

Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

I have a Citizen C802DVD, that is dead, no power at all, what can be the problem? thanks for your help.

    • 1. Press the power button on the TV and not the remote control. It is possible the remote control's batteries are dead. If the TV does turn on, you know you need to replace the remote's batteries.
    • 2 . Disconnect the power cable from the TV, then insert it into a different electrical outlet. On occasion outlets are damaged, and do not provide a power current. If this is the case, changing the electrical outlet connection corrects the problem.
    • 3 . Switch the television's input to a different connection. It may be possible you have the wrong input selected, causing the TV to give off a black screen.
    • 4 . Connect a different source device (such as a DVD player or cable receiver) to the television. If the source equipment is damaged, you will not receive an image from the hardware. If the TV still does not display an image, there is an electrical shortage in the interior of the TV. To see if there is any way to fix this issue, you need to take it into a local TV repair shop.

I suggest you check the cable input system. It is possible that the cable unit produces S Video or B-G and the TV is set up to receive standard quality RGB.

Based on your initial post "smack it a bit on the side it would fix" indicates loose connection or more probably a cold solder. Now that it won't come on, then it maybe that the intermittent loose connection/cold solder has deteriorated to the point that there is no longer any connection.

Again basing on the "smack it a bit on the side it would fix", perhaps initial course of action would be to visually check the inside of the TV with particular attention to the connectors and the solder (underneath the PCB) to check for loose or cold solder. Corrective action would require re-seating and or re-soldering.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Cnannel scan detects no channels

Make sure the cable connection from the dish to the tv is
connected to the antenna/cable input and not the digital
input. Turn on the satellite receiver then auto program the
set with the receiver still on. If this fails to lock in channel
3 your suspicion regarding a faulty tuner could be correct.
A good way to check the tuner operation would be to hook
up another product such as a VCR with the rear switch set
for channel 3 and see if you can receive a picture from this
device. If it works the tuner is OK.
You can bypass the tuner by connecting an S-Video cable
and (or) a set of A/V (yellow,red & white) cables from the
output of the satellite receiver to the video 1 input on the tv.
You'll then have to switch the tv source mode to video 1.
Hope this of some help,

No signal


Assuming that you have hooked it correctly using the correct VGA cable,there is power to the LCD TV and the laptop is running and can be seen on its own LCD display, then there could be two possible reasons:

1. you need to press Fn + F? key (once or a couple of times. Fn would be whatever is needed for your laptop to activate its external video output). To be able to determine what the F? key is, you need to post back your laptop brand and model; or

2. Perhaps what might be causing no display in the TV is that the video signal it is receiving is beyond its capability. To correct this, pls:
2.1. lower screen resolution of your laptop's properties.
2.2. it may also be of help if you likewise lower the screen refresh rate.
Both of the above may be adjusted through the appropriate settings in your Display Properties.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FIXYA.
