On the TV, check the menus to see if there is an audio input selector and, obviously, ensure it's set to the right socket. In some cases the audio is linked to the video input selection so if you connect the video using a SCART connector, the TV will ignore the phono sockets. There is often an SVHS connector for video which is associated with the phono sockets and to use this you will need a VGA to SVHS cable. If you're in the UK, these cost a few pouns from eBuyer. Again, make sure the right input is selected on the TV menu (although some do it automatically).

Many monitor TVs have an independent volume control for the PC audio input and by default this always starts off at 0 so you can't accidentally blast your ears. Adjust to taste :)

Can you plug a pair of headphones into the PC socket & make sure you're getting audio out of it?

And finally, do you have an MP3 or CD player you can use: connect it's headphone output to the TV & see if that works.

Have you got the TV set to the correct channel ? A lot of the TV's have a PC input, but no sound when that input is selected, so plugging the audio into another input won't allow you to use it as a monitor and have sound at the same time. If it were a desktop PC, you could use a DVI-HDMI convertor and get the sound in that way, but most, if not all, laptops have analogue 15 pin video outputs.

No optical plug on TV we wish to use it with. Have an optical to analog converter but can't get it to work.


If the TV has analog audio outputs, then you need an analog to digital audio converter. These converters are not bi-directional; thus the input can't be used for an output signal. This isn't clear from your description above. If your converter has optical IN and analog out, you might be better off with an RCA audio (M/M) to 3.5 mm cable (M) or adapter (RCA F/F to 3.5 mm M).

An analog to digital audio converter is here: http://www.gefen.com/kvm/gtv-aaud-2-digaud.jsp?prod_id=5278 . There are some converters that aren't compatible with all devices; you might want to try a different one. If you do have the correct converter, double check if you have enabled the external audio output on your TV. This will be in the Audio sub-menu for most LG TVs.

I hope this helps.

Sylvania wireless headphones



Instructions
1
Set up the transmitter. Wireless headphones rely on a transmitter that sends audio via infrared or radio waves to your headset. Use the digital audio output (coaxial or optical), RCA outputs (red and white) or headphone jack on your TV to connect the transmitter. The connection will depend upon which outputs are available on your TV and/or the transmitter.
2
Use an RCA-to-headphone adapter. If you don't have a headphone jack on your TV and the transmitter includes only a headphone connection, connect an RCA-to-female headphone connector. This will allow you to plug the wireless transmitter into the female headphone end and then hook the RCA ends into your television's audio outputs. You may also need a 3.5 mm (mini jack)-to-1/4-inch adapter if the headphone plug on the transmitter doesn't match the television jack.

3
Set the transmitter on top of, or next to, the television. For infrared transmitters, you'll need a direct path between the headphones and the transmitter. Placing the transmitter on or near the TV will allow you to take advantage of the clear path you already have.
4
Plug in the transmitter and turn it on. Charge the headphones if necessary.
5
Turn on the headphones. Adjust the volume and settings and you're ready to watch TV.

Where can I purchase the Audio Video Connection for my dvd player I want to hook it up to my TV but can't find the correct cable Thank you Sandy


For the COBY TF-DVD7500, the video is carried on a single RCA plug cable. You can make due with a composite video cable (with three RCA plugs on each end) or get an RCA cable. The audio output can either be digital audio (which uses a special coax cable) or a headphone connector (analog audio).I believe the headphone jack is a 3.5 mm connector. If you use a composite video cable to your TV, you can connect the red and white plugs to an adapter (3.5 mm M to 2 RCA F). Then the TV speakers will get the audio track; otherwise you can use the DVD player speakers or the digital audio out.

I hope this helps.

The TV has two audio out options: a digital audio out (coaxial) and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Both of these are just above the antenna in connector. The headphone jack is the top one.

For a sound system that uses RCA stereo plugs, get a 3.5 mm (M) to 2 red/white RCA F adapter at the headphone jack and use an RCA audio cable from the adapter to the sound system. Alternatively, you can use a 3.5 mm audio patch cable from the headphone jack and the 3.5 mm (F) to 2 RCA (M) adapter at the sound system. The TV speakers will probably be turned off automatically with this connection.

If your sound system has digital audio, get the digital audio cable. You will need to enter the menus to make this audio output active. See the Audio menu > SPDIF Type (PCM, Dolby or Auto).

I hope this helps.

Where on the tv do u plug in headphones?I hve a sanyo tv DP32640


Get an adapter: the one you need depends on the headphone type. If you have the standard IPod/computer headphones with a 3.5 mm plug, get a 3.5 mm F to RCA stereo (2 male plugs). Then plug the RCA plugs into the audio out of the TV and the headphones into the 3.5 mm end.

The TV's Audio out is between the Composite Video IN (Video 1) and the PC input.

If you want to have a longer cable, get the 3.5 mm F to RCA stereo (2 Female ends) adapter. Then connect a stereo audio cable to the TV audio out and the RCA side of the adapter and the headphones to the 3.5 mm port.

Make sure that the TV outputs to the external speakers (some tvs do this automatically when external speakers are plugged in). Menu > Sound

I hope this helps.

To play laptop thru samsung tv I am attempting to play laptop movie thru tv. I have tried the rca y cable with 3.5 mm plug from headphones of laptop to red and white audio in on the samsung tv., no sound....


So you are connecting the laptop to the TV using VGA port of the TV, right? To get sound in the PC input mode, you need to use the PC audio input jack (green jack, mini 3.5mm jack) not the RED and White RCA audio input, they are for Composite Video AV inputs. That is how I have my laptop and TV setup to watch Netflix.

Hi there.
The audio out or headphone jack is located at the front of the laptop and is coloured green.
Get a male to male mini stereo jack ( about 3 meters ) and you will be in business!!
