RCA Audio Out not working?

I have hooked up stereo RCA cables to my TV's audio out ports and plugged them into my home stereo receiver. The sound continues to come out of the TV's built-in speakers for all sources (cable, DVD, composite, component). Is there a setting I need to change in my menu, or is there something wrong with my TV?

    Update: To clarify, I'm not getting any sound of out my stereo. If I plug my devices directly into the stereo's RCA inputs, it works fine, but the TV isn't routing sound through its RCA out. I've even used the same cables to connect devices to my stereo without any problems.

  • Doug McGarvey Apr 22, 2007

    I was able to find a picture of the outputs in question in an ebay listing for this model of TV. RCA audio out is also listed in the manual and on the side of the box, so I'm surprised there's no reference to it in specs found online...

  • Doug McGarvey Apr 23, 2007

    That's what I was afraid of... not sure I want to open up the cover just to fix the audio out, since I can always go the switchbox route and use an external DVD player. It would just be more convenient to use the features the TV was supposed to have in the first place ;)

    Thanks for all your help, I really appreciate the effort you put into researching this for me. If I do decide to take a look inside the casing, I'll let you know what I find, if anything.

You don't say whether you're successfully getting sound out of your stereo or not. I'll assume for the moment you are. Still getting sound out the TV is perfectly normal - RCA plugs have no mechanism for automatically disconnecting the built in speakers (in this respect, they're different from a headphone socket). Solution should simply be to press the mute button on the TV remote - although this will silence the TV speakers, you wouldn't normally expect it to affect the RCA output (failing that, just turn the TV volume control right down).

    This is all looking a bit odd. Checking on the net at specs for your machine, I can't find any mention at all of an audio output to RCA sockets. All they talk about are inputs.

    It might be worth just double-checking the labelling on the sockets to make sure they genuinely are outputs.

    I guess this goes to show that you can't always trust an internet retailer's spec sheet. Sorry I doubted you.

    Having another stab at the question in the light of what we've got now: I can't see any point in having a menu option to enable/disable the RCA out, so I don't think Akai (who aren't idiots) would have gone to the expense and trouble of building in such an option.

    On the whole, I think this next paragraph is a long shot - though I'll stick it in just in case. I have seen one piece of kit which had a single pair of audio RCA sockets which could be switched to act as either input or output. This wasn't a TV, and I believe they did it because they were really short of space on the back panel. I've never seen anyone else try to pull that stunt, and I can't think of any reason why Akai would want to try it on something the size of a 27" TV. If by any chance they are dual purpose sockets (and there's no hint of it in the labelling), I would expect the changeover to be done with a mechanical switch, rather than through the menus.

    In the end, this probably means that the RCA outputs on the TV aren't working like they ought to. It might be worth slipping the cover off and having a quick look - if you're lucky, it may just be that the cable loom to the RCA sockets has become unplugged from the circuit card.

    With a normal TV, a reasonable workround would be to route all your inputs through a switchbox and connect both your TV and Stereo to the output of that. Unfortunately, having the DVD integral to the TV is going to spoil that option for you.

    Conscious this isn't going awfully well.

If your video card supports audio over hdmi in that case you need to find the s/pdif port on you motherboard and the port on your video card (usually right next to and sli or xfire bridge) then you can send the sound thru the hdmi. if not you will have to connect your optical audio cable or a 3.5mm audio out to rca left and right out to your receiver for audio. what video card and mother board are you using? if you know this i can tell you exactly where the ports are for the spdif cable to video card and mobo.

I wanted to know if there is a way to hook up the sound from a Panasonic DMP-BD655P-K Blu-Ray player to my existing Yamaha DVX C310SW home theater system. I know I can hook the Blu Ray directly to the TV...


Yes this can be done. You have several options for audio hookup. Stereo 2-channel (white and red) RCA cables, digital audio (optical or coaxial) or HDMI. Your home theater must have the inputs available such as optical, coaxial etc. Typically the stereo 2-channel RCA is the simple way. Just connect from the Bluray audio outputs to the Home theater inputs (white and red) for stereo sound. Select the input on the home theater. For Dolby Digital 5.1 use optical digital audio cable (black port) or coaxial (orange RCA port) from Bluray to similar home theater input.

If you look real close at the VGA port on the TV, you will see a small mini phone jack 'AUDIO' that is for attaching the audio cable with mini stereo phone plug at both ends, one end is to the TV PC audio input jack, another end goes to the PC AUDIO line out or headphone out.

Can you simplify hook up , trying to hook up with manual and more difficult understanding, want to conect to TV only if possible


The first thing you want to do is run a standard RCA cable from the reciever's Monitor Out to one of the TV's Video In ports so you can see the On Screen Displays from the receiver.

Not knowing what your TV has for connectors: For minimal stereo / low-fi video: If your TV has RCA jacks for L and R audio, run them to AUX In; run the TV's Video Out to the receiver's standard Video 1 In . If you have a cable box, you could run its corresponding cables to the same places for TV viewing.

If your cable box has digital audio outputs, use them instead (best sound, multi-channel) - connect to one of the Digital In's that matches the type and assign it to TV or Cable. Use the Component Video from the cable box, if available.

You can check your dvd player for a coaxial or an optical sound output, then you can plug it directly to your receiver. Those two are the best options after HDMI. Another option is A/V RCA type cable, you´ll need 3 stereo A/V wires, in order to connect the 6 channels. Remember to uncheck the HDMI sound output option on the DVD menu.
