Ok, let me just check the TV's specs for a second.

I'll be right back.

Ok, this TV only has a headphone jack as a way of outputting audio.

Let's try a different angle here: what is connected to the TV other than a cable box? Anything?

Please let me know so that we can continue.

Ok, then the best way to do this is to connect the red and white jacks on the cable box to the red and white jacks on the sound bar.

Use a simple pair of RCA cables between the two.

That should get you up and running.

Let me know if you need more help with this.

Im not connected to a cable box

Ahh, then I misunderstood you. I apologize.

The only other option therefore is use the headphone jack and convert that to two RCA cables. You will need >>>ONE OF THESE<<<

Plug the small end into the TV and the two RCAs into the sound bar.

Sorry again for the confusion. Your TV unfortunately does not have a digital audio output.

Steve
