Home Theater Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, and sorry you're having problems. We are now connected on this website- which saves you money over having a Tech come to your home, and in many cases we can fix the problem you're having. In other cases, these things do require additional parts to fix. But I can help you with that as well.
Please get me the full model number off of the back of the TV.
The USB cable will not be used except to charge the Soundtouch. Offhand the issue is not that. It would be related to the connections and/or settings on your TV, so I will need to know what specific model TV we're dealing with here to help you.
Thank you- I'm taking a look now.
Okay that LG model number isn't copied correctly. The 55LN part seems right but the rest is not. Please carefully copy down the LG model number and post back. The details lie in getting the correct model number.
That's it- thanks.
This TV does not have any AV audio out. Those are Inputs. There is only ONE audio out on the TV, and that is the "Optical" jack. Your Bose does not have an optical input, so they are not directly compatible.
What you need in order to make them work together, is an optical to RCA audio converter- this converts the optical signal to standard 3.5mm stereo that can connect to the Bose.
This converter is at the link below for purchase, and is the only way you will get audio form this TV through the Bose I'm afraid:
You will then select AUX on the Bose, and shut the TV's speakers off in the LG audio MENU to activate the sound through the optical jack.

You're welcome, and keep in mind it's not a cable- but a "converter" as well as an optical cable that you need.
