Need help hooking tv to stereo

Ok so I have a Sony 60 cd changer mini hifi MHC-65300. I am wanting to hook my tv up to it so when I watch movies or tv I can turn on the stereo and have the sound from the tv come through the stereo. I cannot figure out how to wire it up...I have tried a 3.5mm jack plugged into the tv in the "headphone" plug and connected to the stereo via RCA plugs but it makes an annoying sound and u can barely hear the tv sound..also it will not play any sound through the tv if the 3.5mm jack is plugged in. So I don't want to do it like that. I want to be able to watch tv normal then be able to turn the stereo on to "video" or "game" and have the tv sound play through the stereo speakers. I have posted pictures of the back of the stereo as well as the tv! Any help?!! Thanks!!Need help hooking tv to stereo-imageuploadedbyag-free1388082386.092295.jpgNeed help hooking tv to stereo-imageuploadedbyag-free1388082419.874229.jpg

you need an audio out on your tv not the headphone jack

I'm not sure if I have an "audio out". There is one that says "coaxial" on the tv..it looks like it uses a RCA style plug...and in my first picture of the tv manual it says it is used for audio out.do I plug one from that to my "video in" on the stereo?

I had one of those same sony's... they sound pretty nice.... I killed it with a cheap powerbar though..

anyway.... really simple.

RCA audio out on the TV ( red white and yellow) but you only want to use the red/white your tv should have it, even my brand new Samsung 50" has it. Then plug into the red and white that says video in and then select the right setting in the menu's.

You should also have a set of RCA's on the front of that thing called "game" I always used them.

See that is where I'm confused...it is a brand new tv but a cheaper brand (element, got it cheap on Black Friday and it's used in a bedroom) but anyways it only has the options on the tv that I took a picture of

1-PC Audio input (3.5mm jack female)
2-VGA input (computer looking plug)
3-DTV/TV input (threaded coax connection)
4-HDMI ports
5-component input (RCA jacks)



**this is the one I think I need from the tv
6-coaxial digital audio output (female RCA style plug)
7-USB input
8-headphone socket

So I'm thinkin I need a RCA style coax plug to go to the tv to #6 but then what does the other side need to be? A red and white RCA plugs plugged into the "video input"? Sorry if I sound retarded I just can't figure it out! Lol

Ok you either need to make sure your receiver can decode the digital stream that is coming from the tv and use a digital coax cable or get a converter box.

I'll have to give it a shot! Probably won't make it to radio shack this evening. Might try walmart too. I'll post when I get it to see if it worked. Thank you!
