Hello, Your TV uses an optical jack to output audio- what jack are you trying to use?

What make and model amplifier are you trying to connect it to?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Red and white Audio to amp T+A model PA1230R
Expert:  Aric replied 2 years ago.

Okay the red and white audio on the TV are INPUT- not audio output.

Expert:  Aric replied 2 years ago.

So if your amp only uses RCA type audio connections, you need a converter.

The TV's audio out is optical, so an optical cable must be used to convert the signal over to RCA red and white.

Expert:  Aric replied 2 years ago.

I am pulling up a link right now to the converter.

Expert:  Aric replied 2 years ago.

Then you can run the red and white audio cables to your amp from the converter.

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,
Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...
Initially, is the Samsung UE46F7005STXXE directly connected to an antenna or cable feed? ...or is there a PVR or satellite receiver used with the TV ?
The Digital Audio Out (Optical) connection would only work if the TV is receiving digital TV channels with 5.1-channel audio; i.e. through an antenna or direct cable feed connections. If the source is external such as a Blue-ray player, PVR, satellite receiver or similar, then the optical connection would not work.
I realize that the above information may perhaps be not what was expected. Unfortunately, it is a design limitation; sorry for having to be the bearer of bad news.
Alternatively, consider using the TV's headphone jack (if so equipped). A 3.5mm to 2 X RCA cable would be needed to connect to either the amp's TV or AUX 1 input RCA jacks.
