Samsung TV not sending Optical Audio

by Kies277 / July 28, 2011 1:24 AM PDT

I have a Samsung PN58B650 and I am having a problem getting the digital audio to work. It was working fine 2 days ago, but now I changed receivers and it will not work. I had it hooked up to an RCA receiver through an optical audio cable and everything was cool. Now I have a Denon receiver which is hooked up through HDMI. My Directv and PS3 are input to the Denon via HDMI and the Denon is input to the TV via HDMI. Everything works fine there.

Clarification Request
Optical output stopped working
by 2009cajun / March 5, 2012 12:39 AM PST

Bought a new 55" -7000 series Samsung TV this weekend and set up all
of the components (including the Samsung sound bar) - prior to mounting
it on the wall. Everything worked prior to wall mounting the components, but
now the optical output only works for 3-4 minutes and stops sending a signal
to the sound bar. Cable is fine, as I can connect the cable box directly to
the sound bar and the sound works.
Not sure what settings changed or what's up.
