could be a MODE SETTING on sound bar between digital sound input and analogue sound input . Plug into Audio out on tv (RCA out or headphones out) and plug into aux1 port on the back of the sound bar
Using the Input & Vol+ buttons on the front of the Sound bar select the input you connected your
tV to (Digital or Aux1)
The only audio output I see is the headphone jack from which to run the sound bar input. Is the sound bar surround/expanded sound features? Check the audio setup menu on Tv, the sound bar input selection, and try a cord from the headphone jack to the sound bar, if you haven't already. There should always be 2 channel stereo at the head jack unless it's turned off in tv menus. I see the owner's manual is very poor.
If you are currently using your sound system shown for your television sound then you need to use that with you sound bar plugged into it. You can hook it directly to your TV if you have an audio out but your tv has to produce enough output to run the sound bar. If your tv does have an audio out then there is a good chance you need to make those jacks active in the sound set up menu for external speakers. Some sound bars are powered and will require being plugged in as well.
Most televisions have a setting that controls whether the TV uses its internal speakers or sends the sound to the audio out jacks for an external amplifier or speakers.
Try going through the settings menu and follow through the audio/speaker selections and confirm that the TV is set to use external speakers.
the details you provided were very vague, however from my experience when a device is connected to another device via and audio capable hdmi cable, that device renders it audio output to the device its connected to and normally turn off all other audio outputs beside optical- I would assume there is an option in the blue ray player to turn off hdmi audio, which will in turn activate other audio outputs- you may also look for audio out port on your tv, it is ideal to connect the sound bar directly to the tv set audio out ports. To sum this up, if you plan to use your player via hdmi cable you need to turn off hdmi audio output on the blue ray player and the plug an audio cable from your blue-ray player to your sound bar you may also as i said connect your sound bar directly to your tv, the issue is most tv sets now a days do not have an audio out port, if you do then everything you play thru your tv will have audio via sound bar there are several way to go here but unless your sound bar has hdmi av switching capabilities (im sure not) this is one of the most simple--Good Luck.
Some sound bars have a seperate power cord, did you plug it in. Also, the source for the sound, are you using the audio outputs and not the audio inputs. They are all the same color (red and white) so you may have plugged in the wrong ones. If the sound bar is getting power, say a green led and the source for it is the tvs audio ouput jacks you might have to see if there is a seperate remote for the sound bar and raise the volume. Lastly the tvs audio output might have a seperate setting, it could be fixed or variable. Fixed will only change volume with the sound bar remote. In variable you will be able to change the volume with the tv remote but first you have to raise the sound bar level. Hope this helps in some way.
There are a couple ways you can do this.
1-You can take your audio output from the tv and connect it to input 1 on the sound bar. This is what I would recommend.
2-You can unplug the audio portion from the tv and connect it to the sound bar, thus only sending video to the tv and the audio from your source directly to the sound bar.
