Question about Dell W3000 30 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

Weak sound from Dell W3000

I recently reconfigured my home theatre system to take out my Bose 321 for service. I have substituted the speakers that came with the Dell W3000, but can't get much sound to come out of them. Problem is, I don't think it's the speakers, since even my headphone jack in the TV doesn't give me much sound. I am using gold plated AV/S-Video plugs from Radio Shack, which I was using with my old system and they worked fine.

Does this sound like a bad connection somewhere in the loop? I tried going directly from my cable box to the TV, but the result was the same.

I'm grateful for any suggestions.

    OK, I solved it. Turns out I bent a pin on one set of cables when reconfiguring them. Once I fixed that, the speakers worked fine. I do appreciate Bubbabear's getting back to me so quickly, though, with a suggestion.



    This is a neat forum. I'll use it again.

Its possible that the speakers that came with the TV aren't amplified. Do you have another set of speakers that are to test the audio output?

    A bent pin will do that too. Glad it works.

I an lg47 240 hz flat screen hooked to a bose 3-2-1. I got the dvd to play through the bose and sound working through both the bose speakers and tv speakers, but when I try to get the tv to play through...


if you are using a hd reciever make sure the audio output goes directly to the bose system... if you do not have an hd reciever make sure its audio out on the television that you are using if you do have it hooked up right make sure the bose 321 is on the right input such as audio in!!!

if it still is not working exchange it.

Additional speakers


two options use the RCA audio out (red and white) on the back or side of the tv to connect to a home theatre system also you could use the headphone jack to connect to a home theatre system or some sort of external speakers. other than that it doesnt look like you have too many options on that model of tv if you need the owners manual here is the link for an online version.

No sound from plasma to home theatre


First off it's always best to start from scratch when it comes to home audio. LoL. Many times I've been in this situation.
So with everything disconnected. You should have your HDMI, COMPONENT, RCA(R,W,Y)
HDMI and COMPONENT are the exact same thing and in all preference COMPONENT is far better thand HDMI for the pure fact that each wire is in it's own casing and insualted to avoid feedback from the other wires.
Anyways, with everything disconnected we begin
From you Cable/satellite box- Run your HDMI cable from you cable box to your HDMI 1 input on your tv.(If your speakers were to work on your tv you would automaticaly get sound and picture)
That should be all that you should be running from you cable box. Now that we have one thing running we go to the next thing.
From your TV run your audio out (RCA Red/White) to your amp. Usually your preference but more than likely your TV IN on your amp.
With your amp now set on TV, you should automatically get sound from your tv. and if your running an HD cable box even though your only running RED/WHITE to your amp, you will still be receiving Digital sound.
Most new amps Should have a digital input and if your running and 1080iUp this one RCA plugin will give you dolby digital sound from your dvd player to your amp. Then running a video rca up to your tv, will give you the picture, while the digital out on your dvd player to your amp will give you dolby digital sound.

It's a basic simple step to get sound. Like a continuing current. So just as long as you have your cable to -- tv -- home theatre. Everything should work. Otherwise I would go and check your cables and make sure they are not faulty.
I hope this confusing walkthrough helps.

Sound interuptions with Samsung S4253


My set started having sound issues recently. Every now and then, randomly, I get a split second, static sound. It sounds like an old record player when it skips. It happens on all channels HD and digital. Also happens when I'm watching a DVD. This leads me to think that it's not my cable box (Dish Network). I have a Bose 321 aux amp plugged in. I hear it through my aux speakers, as well as directly through the tv set. Not sure what to do. Is it possible my tv's amp is burning out? What could be causing this?
