I wanted to connect TV Ears, only to discover there are no audio output ports, only a digital audio output. I didn't want to have to order the Alternate Installation Kit, but I guess that's the only option?
Well, you've probably purchased a new T.V. by now, but I thought I'd share my input for others that may have this issue arise in their life.Using a Optical to Analog (RCA) converter does the trick quite nicely, without breaking you. Converter

Re: Can't connect external audio
When buying a new TV it is important to make sure that it has the features you require. For some of the new sets a compatible adaptor is required for analog outputs and inputs. If the option is not present, then it is not able to be used!

A digital television adapter (DTA), or digital-to-analog converter [set-top box], or commonly known as a converter box, it is a television tuner that receives a digital television (DTV) transmission, and converts the digital signal into an analog signal that can be received and displayed on an analog television set.
Just connect an other speaker in place, and make sure that the speaker inside the TV has no fault. If sound comes out from the externally connected speaker is OK; be sure that the speaker of your TV is OK, and the fault with with its audio output section circuit. Check and replace the damaged component/s at the audio output stage circuit. Contact any service technician. Gopakumar Gopalan Google
If this unit has audio output jacks then these would be connected through an amplifier to provide your external speakers. Caution: Do not open the tv and connect additional speakers to installed speakers because you'll blow the small audio amp in the tv. I have seen this attempted many times
Hello Check first whether mute function is ON or not. If it is ON, make it OFF. If mute is OFF and still there is no sound from your TV, connect it to any other audio output sources, like an external amplifier or so, by connecting TVs external audio out sockets at its back and see whether there is sound output form amp. If not, make sure that the audio processing section circuits inside your tV is fulty. If there is soudn from amp, and not from the TV, check the speaker of the TV. If it is ok, then audio output section circuit of your TV is faulty, and need repair. OK.
Just check the rear of the television if by chance you have left any cable still connected to the audio output jack. If there the TV might be trying to redirect the audio to an external device not present. Sometimes it could also be a simple setting to be changed , . Check if you have a switch at the back of the TV stating External or Internal speakers. From the manual i got
A/V Receiver: The TV can detect audio connections on the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack and the right (red) analog AVR AUDIO OUTPUT jack. Note for Analog A/V Receivers: When you disconnect an analog A/V receiver, manually change the Speakers setting to TV to hear sound from the TV speakers.
Press Menu on the remote-> Goto AV Select Audio by pressing the right key Under that the first option of Speakers -> select and set to TV. Only then will the TV speakers play the audio.
Unfortunately it has no audio output jack / connector. But if you want to enabling audio output just tap it on internal speaker wires ( make it parallel or disconnect internal speaker and use your external speaker).
A long time ago I used to see adapters that would allow a 75 ohm to 300 ohm connection for the older TV sets. These may not be easy to find anymore.
Considering all things practical and the age of the set, there comes a time when it is the time to get a new set! At least the new set will be compatible and you will be able to enjoy a better quality of performance.
Anyways here are the detailed instructions for connecting a DVD recorder to a TV
The first step to connecting a DVD Recorder to your TV is to
determine what type of connection you want to make between the TV
source (Cable, Satellite, Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV. This
is usually determined by the outputs and inputs available on the DVD
Recorder and the TV.
If you have an older TV that only accepts
RF (Coaxial) input, then you would connect the RF output (a coaxial
cable) from your TV source (in my case a Cable Box) to the RF input on
the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RF output from the DVD Recorder to
the RF input on the TV. This is the most basic (and lowest quality)
option for connecting a DVD Recorder to any TV.
If you want to
use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source
(Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using
Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
composite cables (also known as RCA, the yellow plug is video, the red
and white plugs, audio): Plug in the composite cables to the RCA
outputs on the back of your TV source and then plug in the composite
cables to the RCA inputs of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RCA
outputs from the DVD Recorder to RCA inputs on the TV.
S-Video and RCA audio cables: Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video
output of the TV source. Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video input
on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the RCA audio cable to the output on
the TV source and the input on the DVD Recorder. Finally, connect the
S-Video cable and the RCA audio cable to the output on the DVD Recorder
and the input on the TV.
To use Component Video cables and RCA
audio cables: Connect the Component Video cable and the red and white
RCA audio cables to the outputs on the TV source and the inputs on the
DVD Recorder. Next, connect the Component Video cable and RCA audio
cable to the outputs on the DVD Recorder and the inputs on the TV.
that the TV source (either Cable, Satellite or Antenna), the DVD
Recorder and the TV are all connected, you need to configure everything
to make sure that TV is coming through the DVD Recorder, for recording
Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
you connected everything using the RF connections then the TV should be
passing through the DVD Recorder and displaying Television on the TV
screen. To record in this mode, you would need to tune to either
channel 3 or 4 on the TV and then use the DVD Recorder TV Tuner to
change channels and record.
If you made connections using
either Composite, S-Video or Component cables, then to view or record
TV, two adjustments need to be made. First, the DVD Recorder needs to
be tuned to the appropriate input, typically L1 or L3 for rear inputs
and L2 for front inputs. Second, the TV also must be tuned to the
proper input, on a TV usually Video 1 or Video 2.
If you have a
Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound A/V Receiver you can connect either a
Digital Optical Audio cable or Coaxial Digital Audio cable from the DVD
Recorder to the receiver to listen to audio through the receiver.
Tvs are wired differently these days. Your old Zenith for example probably had a selector switch that allowed you to change from internal or external speakers, bandpassing the audio from the internal amplifier to the audio out connectors. Your Sharp on the other hand may be controlled by customer menu to perform the same function as the external switch. Go into the menu and sub-menu of the audio and see if it gives you any choices for selecting internal or external speakers... If it doesn't it probably will not bandpass the already amplified signal, which means if you want to listen to your Tv on those external speakers you'll first have to pass the audio sample through an amplifier.
Hope this helps.
