Do you need to set sound input source in your audio menu on the TV?

make and model of both PC (laptop) and TV might help + operating system win 7, vista, xp?

I'm guessing you're connecting a PC/laptop to your TV.

The 3.5mm jack on your TV is most probably present to connect headphones to. AFAIK, to send the PC/laptop's sound to the TV, you need to connect the 3.5mm jack on the computer/laptop's speaker out to the RCA connectors on your TV using a 3.5mm jack to 2xRCA cable like click here.

But I may be wrong, so when you reply please tell us the make, model & type of TV (CRT or LCD/TFT) & ALL its various connectors. And also all the available graphics outputs on the PC/laptop. G

I have my pc hooked up to an LCD tv and I just use a 3.5mm cable from the earpiece socket on the pc to a 3.5mm 'audio in' socket on the back of the tv.

If you're connecting from the PC's green audio output into the TV's 'audio in' (if that's what it actually is), then it should work - like click here. G

Did you check volume levels on both? Do you have a link to your TV model? Or, the exact model number?

We asked you some specific questions yesterday, but you choose to answer in dribs & drabs. G
