Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

Have you been using just the red/white cords?

DO you have anything else there like a dvd or bluray player?

I found out on my own directly from Samsung that the two units are not compatible. I had to hook the CD player through a sound bar.
Electronics Technician: Nathan, Technician replied 7 months ago

That is exactly what I was getting at,

you cannot input audio only, the tv will only pick that up if you have a video signal. If you had a dvd player you can play the cd in it.

Alternately, you can connect a yellow cord from some other device like a cable box and use that to trick the tv into then playing the audio, even though the screen won't match.

I tried that also and it did not work. The only way I could make it play was hooking directly to a sound bar. It detected the av signal but still no sound.

Was it showing a picture from whatever device you connected (yellow)?
