No speaker sounds when connected to Samsung 60 inch HDTV

by JoeV_25 / December 9, 2014 11:08 AM PST

I had a 28 inch Samsung HDTV. It was connected to a switch box and an AM-FM receiver so that I can hear the television sound through house speakers. I now bought a 60 inch Samsung, and when I connect the red-white wires to the TV, I get NO SOUND. I tried reversing them, and confirmed the switch box worked (it did when I switched to a cd player and a cassette player). The only sound I get is a bit of static when I touch one of the wires to the outside of the connection on the tv. I have changed the "audio settings" on the tv: mono, stereo, surround sound; with no luck. Is there another setting I need to change on the tv? This is so frustrating! Thanks for any help.

Almost 100% of Samsung TVs use the Red White RCA jacks to send audio TO the TV. You seem to have it hooked up wrong. Tell the full model number or just post a link of your model ( so we can proceed.

I am using all red-white jacks; the same ones I used on the 28 inch tv. I connected the red jack to the red audio receptacle on the back of the tv (same with white), and then directly connected it to the back of a Realistic STA-52 AM/FM stereo receiver. There is an "aux" jack with two receptacles noted "L" and "R". I tried both combinations (red in the left, then white in the left), with no results. The model number is UN60H6203AF. thanks for any help. Is there a way of checking the audio receptacles on the tv?

Upon thinking about it, I originally used a black/grey wire for the 28 inch tv-- from the tv to the switch box. It had the RCA type connections, like the red-white ones. Will that make a difference?

I can't find the model of the TV

Almost all RCA jacks are inputs to the TV. Since I can't find the model number I think it's hooked up wrong.

Check your TV condition

I think some cable issues. Check your cable or otherwise contact your tv vendor for your problem.

! solved the problem!!

I went back to Best Buy and talked to one of the stereo reps. He said my question was the second one he had that night. What I needed was a stereo to RCA audio cable. The one (black) connection looks almost like a head phone jack. That went into the "audio out" on the back of the tv, and the red-white connections went into the switch box. It worked!! Now I have to work on the cd-dvd player. Thanks for your assistance. Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
