Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,
Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model numbers of the TV and the soundbar. The model number can be found printed on a sticker/stencil at the rear of the TV. Please consider carefully checking the back.
Additionally, is the TV directly connected to an antenna or cable feed? ...or is there a cable box and/or satellite receiver used? What other devices are connected to the TV.
And please describe how these devices are connected to the TV using what kind of cable(s).
Perhaps the documentation that came with the TV before would still be available.
The TV model number is ***** as the headphone jack may possibly be an input jack for the VGA connector (if featured).
Still, when able please. Thanks.
Appreciate the additional information.
And yes, the 3.5mm jack on the TV's left side panel serves as a headphone jack. But to my understanding, there is also a pair of red & white RCA jacks at the rear intended as L-AUDIO-OUT-R.
Either of the 2 above can be plugged into the Samsung's AUX IN 3.5mm jack.
Could you try the TV RCA jacks to the soundbar's AUX IN jack?
Thank you for allowing me time to reference the manuals for these devices and compose my reply.
And to your kind understanding of site automated/system generated offers.
An alternative / possibility but depending on the DVD player's feature is HDMI from the player to the Samsung, and HDMI from the Samsung to the Philips.
Perhaps that would be the simplest yet the best to implement; i.e. HDMI all the way. LG to Samsung's HDMI IN. Samsung's HDMI OUT to Philip's side panel HDMI SIDE port. It would give the best video quality and the Samsung would simply "sample & extract" the (digital) audio before passing the HDMI signal to the TV. Pressing the Samsung's front panel F button selects HDMI.
Yes please; an update when able.
Let's try test the soundbar.
Connect a 3.5mm to RCA cable to the Samsung's AUX IN jack. With power supplied to the soundbar, turned On and volume raised, lightly touch only the tip of the center pin of either/both RCA plugs. The soundbar should produce a thump and/or a humming sound.
Have you tried directly connecting the LG (dependent on the model/features) player's red & white AUDIO OUT jacks to the AUX IN of the Samsung?
