When i connect my cable box to my TV using the yellow, white, red cords i get no sound. There is sound on the regular channel but when i connect the cord to the av1 or av2 there is no sound. Please help me this is my three year old son TV and he wants to watch cartoon network at night.
Re: no sound when connected to my digtal cable box
Have you tried to connect the red white and yellow av cords to another tv? if you have sound on another then its probably the tv you are trying to connect to for your son. If thats the case you could by an rf modulator which converts the red white and yellow to the coax connection in which case you'll have sound.

No. Red and white are left and right stereo sound. Yellow is for video. Do you have power to the sound bar? Are those red and white cables connected to audio OUTPUT on the TV? If they are connected to the audio INPUT to the TV, it won't work. You may need to connect the cable to a 'phones' jack on the TV. Can you connect the sound bar to another source (like an iPod or CD player)? That will test the sound bar itself.
With the blue/green/red cords (Component) you need to get a very good bright light on the connectors so you get the plugged into the correct COMPONENT connectors on the TV. Note, there are white and red AUDIO plugs right near the COMPONENT input so you need to be VERY careful. If you get it wrong, the colors on screen are often off and even black&white.
How is your cable box connected to the TV? Screw on "COAXIAL", Yellow, Red, White "RCA", single flat connector "HDMI" or 5 colored plugs 2 X Red, 1 X White, 1 X Blue, 1 X Green "COMPONENT"
Hi, Flat panel television instruction manuals are not very easy reading material, there are many connections on the back-you need to plug in some sort of input-always coming from the " out to T.V." of another device. Cable coax's are most common-the cables aren't very flexible that's one way to tell them apart from an RCA cable-usually with red, white, yellow,green and blue colored ends. The red, white and yellows are what we'll focus on for now-the yellow's are for a picture-connect them from an " out to TV" to " video input" on the back of tv, then for sound likewise- red and white colored from an"audio out " to "audio in " if coming from a VCR-you may use the rather un-flexible " screw on" coax connector-same if coming from a satellite/cable box-some satellites require tuning tv channel to # 60 for a picture-other wise it's channel 3 or 4. although you will get a better picture using yellow, red & white rca cords. I hope this has been of some help, prodzilla
These cable is to connect your tv to other hardware like a dvd player. Just plug the yellow cord on the yellow input in the TV and in the yellow output of the DVD, and the same thing for the other two colors.
The yellow it's for the image, and the white/red are for the stereo sound (right and left channels).
If you don't have extra hardware you wont need to connect that cable.
If you have an older VCR, you can connect the cable to the vcr "in" , then connect the A/Vcables from the video and audio out of the vcr to the A/V on the set and put the set on av1 for source. If you don't have a vcr then you will have to get a box.
Red is right channel, White is Left Channel, and Yellow is video. If you just got the TV and DVD player its a pretty simple setup. Just look on the back of the DVD player and hook the yellow cord to video and hook the other end to video on your TV. Now just plug in the red and white cords to the audio on the back of the DVD player and connect the other ends to audio on the back of the TV. You can bypass these connections and just get a HDMI cable which has video and sound all in one convenient cord, but they cost more. You just connect the cord on the back of the DVD player where it says HDMI and then plug the other end to the TV where it says HDMI.
i am eltoyosi and am here to help you.
the first question i will ask you is this.....does your TV set have an av-output?
if it does then make sure you plug the AV cords from the game in the following manner...........
the yellow cord is for picture display and make sure it goes into the yellow cord on your TV set.
the red and white cords are both for sounds of the left and right speakers on your TV set. try this connection and you are set to have fun with your game,
