Thank you for the quick response. Unfortunately, I just tried this and it did not work. Keep in mind that I also tried it from another source (cable box) and the cable is lit up when plugged into either source. I also tried another cable with each source and still get no sound. Any other suggestions?

My TV has been hooked up by the optical connection for a few years with no problems. I disconnected it so that I could hook the speaker up to a DVD player that only had the coaxial output. This worked fine. When I hooked it back up to the TV, no sound would play. I tried the following. Turn off and unhook all cables for 1 minute, that didn't work. I tried using the optical output on my cable box and that didn't work. I see that the TV is sending a signal because the red light in the cable is on when the TV is on and off when I shut the TV off. I checked the diagnostics by holding the remote button for 15 sec. and got 4 blinks, so it is showing that it is not receiving an audio signal, but I think it is because of the red light being on inside the cable (and the fact that I tried 2 sources). This is the only output option on the TV, but my cable box also offers the r/w stereo jacks. I tried these and that worked, along with the DVD player still working if I hook up the coaxial cable again. I did not have both digital and coaxial plugged in at the same time. Could it possibly be that- because I used the coaxial input, that it is not going back to the optical? Is there a way to make it choose optical? I thought if this were an issue, that by doing the unplugging reset it would fix the issue, but it does not.
