PC Audio Cable to TV

by lbrunell / December 14, 2008 2:09 AM PST

What are the specifications for the PC audio cable refered to in the owners manual page 11 for a LN-T4042H Samsung TV? I assume one end is a standard single jack to hook to a PC headphone audio out jack. What size connector in used to hook into the PC audio in single jack on the TV?

To hook up PC audio, it should be a standard 3.5mm male to 3.5mm male connection.

In some cases, it may be a RCA to 3.5mm I'd definitely recommend taking a look to see which connection in the back of the television denotes "PC" when associated with audio.

I cant get sound from my PC or heatset to TV

Hi there.

I really hope you can help.

I have the user manual here:

Further down, download the User Manual (ver. 1.0) in English and see page 4 please.

I have tried to connect an ordinary headphone jack into the PC IN on the back of my LE46A966D1W. The sound keeps coming from the TV and not the headset. I also have a wireless headset I could use on my old TV but cant get i to work on this one.

Also I would like to connect my PC sound to the TV and have tried to use a cable with jacks on both ends that fit the PC IN at the back of the TV and the speaker out on my sound card.

I can play HD movies through the DVI to HDMI cable from PC to TV but all I need is the sound!

Looking forward.

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?
