Connect LED TV to Soundbar

Dec 9, 2017 10:16AM PST

Hi,

I have a LED with HDMI/Arc output and a 3.5mm jack for audio output. No other audio output available from TV.
My soundbar has RCA input, coaxial, optical.

The 3.5mm jack seems to have issue I am loosing audio with it, is there any way to connect my TV and soundbar.

This lets CNET members to see if it's supposed to work. Usually it's the settings if the headphone jack works with headphones.

"Headphone/Audio Out:
Sets the sound
output to headphone, external audio
systems or Active Subwoofer
connected to the TV. Disconnect
headphone from the TV when you
select [Audio Out] or [Subwoofer]. "

That is, if you plug something into the headphone jack it appears to not just work. You have to navigate the menus to enable this.

There's also a note this has optical in the manual but for now it appears it may be you need to check the manual again on how to use the headphone jack.
