I assume by using your phone (cable rca to mini jack) the sounbar functions normal. Next time give more info like tv and soundbar make and model no and what connections are available on both components and if its input or output connections.

On the tv make sure the rca cable (tv to soundbar) is plug into the stereo output of the tv and not in a av input. Some tv's have a mini jack out and not rca. Some have a earphone socket which could also be used.

Some tv's only have a digital or optical output port. Iin basic sound work and can be connected with the following combinations .

Minijack to minijack
Minijack to rca
rca to rca
digital to digital
optical to optical

Im having trouble hooking up my sound bar to my monitor E196FPf


As far as I know, the E196FPf monitor does not have speakers or an audio out. Thus you'll need to connect the sound bar to the audio out of your computer or other source. On a laptop, this will be the headphone jack. On desktops, you use the lime-green 3.5 mm jack on the back of the system.

Depending on the sound bar, you might need a Aux (3.5 mm M to 3.5 mm M) cable, a 3.5 mm M to dual RCA (red/white) adapter cable or an analog to digital audio converter with the 3.5mm to RCA cable and appropriate digital audio cable.

Please add a comment with the model of the sound bar and the audio/video source, if you want more information on the best solution for your application.

I hope this helps.

How do I connect a sound bar to my Panasonic TX-50A300B I want to use an optical cable as ear phone jack does not produce a decent level


If your TV has an optical port on the back, you simply get an optical cable long enough to connect the two. On your TV sound setup screen you'll have to select optical out so the sound from the TV will be switched from the RCA jacks to the optical out port.

How dd I connect my soundbar to my TV using the red and white RCA plugs


Hello. On the back of your TV look for RCA Audio jacks marked "Audio Out". Connect the cables from that to the RCA Audio Input on your sound bar. If your TV doesn't have the RCA outputs, see if it has an optical output. Your sound bar probably has an Optical Audio input. You would need to buy an optical cable for that.

How to connect my tv to optical outlet


What audio-outputs does your TV have? SPDIF? 3.5 millimeter stereo-jack? White/Red RCA "post-and-collar" sockets?

What inputs does the sound bar have? (Same choices as above.)

Note that you might need a 3.5mm to stereo-RCA cable.

Why is the sound on my new sound bar only going up half way?


Connect the sound bar to your cable box audio outputs--best way is optical. Then set the cable box volume to high and control the volume from the sound bar

How do I connect a sound bar to my magnivox TV


There is only one set of out jacks, the rest are in and they are usually right next to the in jacks. You are looking for a set of red and white colored plugs, some have a yellow with that would make three next to each other. The sound bar will work whenever the power is on then all you do is turn down the sound on the tv.

Why is there no sound coming out of my goodmans 50w sound bar?


No. Red and white are left and right stereo sound. Yellow is for video. Do you have power to the sound bar? Are those red and white cables connected to audio OUTPUT on the TV? If they are connected to the audio INPUT to the TV, it won't work. You may need to connect the cable to a 'phones' jack on the TV. Can you connect the sound bar to another source (like an iPod or CD player)? That will test the sound bar itself.

I have just purchased a sharp HT-SB250 sound bar to go with my sharp 32" Aquos LED tv. The item came supplied with the RCA cable and having connected it to the sound bar and the audio connections in...


You have obviously connected the sound bar's RCA (red, and white) cables to the TV's IN jacks rather than the OUT jacks, OR you might have them connected to the RCA VIDEO jacks. Check it. Connect them to the TV's audio OUT jacks. Presumably, the inputs on the back of the TV are marked "audio out", and the IN connections from your sound bar must go into the OUT inputs on your TV. I can't imagine what else it could be causing the problem.

How do I connect my Panasonic SC-HTB500 sound bsr to my Panasonic TH-42PX75U television with an HDMI cable?


If you have a set top box (blu-ray, dvd, cable) with HDMI Out, then you need a pair of HDMI cables. Connect one from the HDMI Out of the set top box to the HDMI In of the sound bar. Then connect the HDMI Out of the sound bar to the HDMI In of the TV.

If you only want to use the sound bar as an external speaker system for the TV, then you should get a digital audio cable (fiber optic cable). Connect this to the Digital Audio Out on the TV (below HDMI ports) and to the Digital Audio In of the sound bar.

I hope this helps. You can find the manual of the TV here: http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Televisions/Plasma-TVs/model.TH-42PX75U . The TV also has analog (RCA) audio out jacks labeled Prog Out on the bottom left of the connection panel; the sound bar however doesn't have RCA audio in jacks.

(since there are no HDMI out jacks on the TV, there is no other way to connect the sound bar.)

I am attempting to attach a Samsung Sound Bar to my 42 inch LCD 1080P Polaroid Television. I can not seem to get sound from the Television connected to the Sound Bar. Thoughts?


Connect the audio out RCA jacks (white and red) on the TV to the white and red RCA input jacks on the sound bar for analog stereo sound or connect the black digital audio output jack (typically optical) on the TV rear panel to the sound bar's optical digital audio input jack for surround sound. Use an optical cable. There may be some user settings on the TV for audio.
