TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, I'm Nathan.Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.
Could you tell me exactly which model tv you have, you listed 2 different ones here.
do you see a port on the back of the tv that is a round (rca type) port and color coded Orange or Black, and says Digital Audio Out above it?
That is it, thanks for checking,
your tv is not directly compatible with the soundbar, because many of these smaller and lower quality models use the cheaper coax connection, which your soundbar doesn't support.
You'll need to purchase a small converter, to go from that orange (coax) port to the optical connection that the soundbar needs: https://amzn.to/2uGKYIg
Just plug that into the orange on the tv, optical on the soundbar, and everything should work.
It is possible, yes,
but with added cost so you'd probably be better off just buying a different model soundbar that has the coax port built in to begin with.
