Soundbar has power, but no sound. Trying to connect it to a 3-year-old Sharp TV, model number LC-40P3000U, using the supplied 3.5mm to RCA audio cable.
The RCA cable is my only option:
- I can’t use the supplied digital optical cable, cuz I don’t see where on the TV to plug it in.
- I have a regular coax cable, but don’t have a digital coax cable (my regular one doesn’t screw on, so they must be different)
Light colour on soundbar shows its the right input.
The “AV In” on TV is for a yellow/white/red cable. I thought I could plug in the supplied red & white RCA cable into the red & white ports on the TV (minus the yellow/video), but apparently not, cuz it’s not working!
Checking Input source on tv only shows two available - TV and HDMI1. All others are greyed out. That seems to tell me the RCA connection isn’t working, or wouldn’t AV, Component, or Media be lit up?
Have played around with audio settings on the tv, even with acronyms I don’t recognize lol, I’ve tested them all, but still no sound.
(And yes, I’ve volumed up the soundbar remote
Do I need an adapter, or a different connection? Or is this soundbar simply not compatible with my TV?
I’m so bummed right now. Was SO looking forward to better sound in my bedroom :-/
