I am new to the site.
I just recently renovated my TV wall and hid some cables inside the wall, carefully reconnected everything and it worked fine. Then, after about a week, the optical cable connection stopped working.
I have a Samsung 8000 series 60 inch TV and a Denon AV 1612 receiver, the signal is connected to the TV and an optical cable to the receiver. I have triple checked everything and the connections are fine, the audio test is fine, the problem is with the optical cable input. I have read the manual many times and set up the optical with the sat/cable input, but the info on the amp reads analog, and I dont get any sound.
Any ideas? Could the optical cable be damaged? Any other troubleshoot tip before buying a new cable? The problem is not the price, it is that the cable is buried behind a tile wall, and the way I had to set it up did not leave a whole lot of room to easily manage changing that specific cable.
