It doesn't sound like you've got the cables connected in the proper locations. Make certain you're trying to get sound from an output and not an input. Then the best advice at this point is to read the owner's manual once again. There are multiple ways to connect any HT system and advicing on the one correct way is virtually impossible. If you can't find a wiring diagram for your system in the owner's manual that seems appropriate for your desires, try a search engine and something along the lines of "home theater wiring diagram". If you really can't figure this out, most audio shops have services that will come out to your home to finish the install.

I'm a newbie and not very technical but I need your help. I recently purchased a Samsung 52 hdtv my previous TV was a 36 Proscan that I had 4 ceiling speakers directly jacked into the set. The new TV doesn't have the speaker jacks I don't want to abandon the ceiling speaker can anyone provide me a way to hook them up.

Thanks in advance

Not with the amount of information you've provided. Do you have a receiver in this system?


You should be able to get assistance from the dealer who sold you the TV.

Jan, with the Proscan the speakers were jacked directly to the TV and there was a switch for internal or external speakers. The Samsung has no jacks for the speakers so from your response I gather I will need a receiver that accomidates at least 4 speakers.

Yep. You can use a switch box to extend the number of speaker outputs.
