Question about Fujitsu Siemens PlasmaVision P42VHA40 Monitor

1 Answer

We have our cable box hooked up to the tv and get a great picture but no sound. The previous owners had a stereo system hooked up to the tv and we are simply trying to get any sound at all. We went into the settings and set video 5; which is the mode that the cable works through and set it to audio 4. The loudness is On. We also have one set of speakers plugged into the wired jacks - still nothing.

Ok, I need more verifications:
1) Your TV is Fujitsu Siemens PlasmaVision P42VHA40 Monitor which does not have tuner? If not, please provide the make and model of the TV.

2) What kind of cables you are using to hook between the cable box and the TV? HDMI? Component video (Red, Blue, and Green cables withe RCA plugs)? Composite video cable with Yellow RCA plugs?

3) Are you trying to get the sound to come out off the TV speakers or through the stereo system?

How do I hook up my 55 inch led tv to a stereo for better sound


In many cases newer tv's do not have an audio out, some have a headphone jack on the side (Small usually blue)

Otherwise if you are wanting to get better sound from a DVD / Blueray / Satellite / Cable box, You can put the audio from these devices into your sound system, then plug your sound systems audio out into the tv.
The video out from your devices will need to connect directly into the tv.

If using HDMI or S-Video that carries both audio and video, slitter / separation boxes are available, but usually degrade sound and audio quality.

The above would look something like

Cable box audio out (red / white) to Stereo audio IN. >> Stereo Audio OUT to TV audio in.
Yellow (Video) Cable from cable box then goes directly to the TV Video IN. Just make sure the audio and video cables are going to the same section (Some tv's may have multiple audio / video in's

Hooking your PS2 Up To your Stereo
Just got a PS2 and trying to hook it up to your TV, stereo or both? Here are instructions to help you get everything working smoothly.

First, some basic cable definitions. These are pretty much standard for ANY system or stereo you ever get, so it's good to learn them.

RED CABLE - right channel for stereo sound (get it - Red Right?)
WHITE CABLE - left channel for stereo sound
YELLOW CABLE - video signal

Your PS2 plays games and plays DVDs. So it is generating signals that go OUT of that box. You want those signals to go IN to your TV. The most simple way to do this is to simply plug them into your TV, if you have no stereo system hooked up and nothing else attached to your TV. Most TVs have stereo left in, stereo right in, and video in. Most in fact have them all color coded with the above colors. So all you do is plug the cables in and turn the TV on. Some TVs have to be set to channel 2 or 3 to know to take the signal in from the Video In line, but your manual would tell you if that was the case. Here is a diagram of the straight connection.

I would really recommend hooking a stereo system into your TV, though. The PS2 has INCREDIBLY stereo sound and you really miss out on a lot if you just have the sound coming out of your TV speakers!! Especially if you play DVDs through your PS2, you want that sound coming out of the stereo system. So in this case you would send the video to your TV, so your TV can show the picture. You then send your audio (sound) to the stereo, so it can play the sound. Most stereo systems have multiple input spots so you can plug in your CD player, your tape player, your record player, etc. So just choose an input spot that isn't taken yet. Here's an image of that connection -

So let's say you don't have a tape player and therefore plug the red cable into "Tape Input R" and plug the white cable into "Tape Input L". To make the sound play, you would now press the "Tape" selection button on your stereo so it played the music coming through the tape channel. Since that's where your PS2 is plugged in, that is the sound that will come out of your speakers.

Hitachi tv sound problems


If you are running this through a cable box then you need to run a separate pair of audio from the box output to the input of the TV. If This is from a stereo system then you need to run audio from the cable box to the stereo component and select the proper input after it is turned on.

TV Hookup


The TV is NOT a source of high quality sound.

For the best serious audio I would recommend drawing the audio-only digital feed from the Cable Box via its highest quality audio output. Then turn the TV's volume down. Also run the vanilla RCA stereo audio pair from the cable box to the TV in case you just want to check the weather.

I have a 42 inch Insignia plasma tv. I only hook


If you have the audio cables hook up correctly to where the video cable from DVD is connected to, it should be RED and WHITE wires for audio. Then go to on screen audio setup menu to see if the speakers is turn off in the menu. Also try hooking up the powered PC speakers to the AUDIO LINE out RCA jacks to see if you get the sound OK there.

Sound is ridiculously low


if it is a stereo tv, there should be rca jacks on the back of the tv [red,white yellow] try connecting the rca outputs to a stereo system and see if the volume is any different.there might be a loose connection to the tv speakers inside.if you have a cable box hooked up to your tv, check the connections in back. you can also try bypassing the cable box by connecting the cable wire directly into the tv to see if it's the tv. if it is the cable box try unplugging it for a minute then hook it up again.i had the same problem with my cable box. hooking it up to a stereo system sounds like a pain, but at least you will have sound.
good luck

Zenith system 3 tv will not turn on


I'd say just get a stereo system (amplifier) or something like that, and hook your cable box, vcr, converter or whatever you have right into that. That's what I've been doing for years. Most cable boxes and satellite boxes will control the main volume that goes to the sound output, or you can get a digital stereo with a remote to control the volume that way.
