Question about LG Televison & Video

7 Answers

Hi. I recently purchased an LG 37LG5010 LCD TV. I have a hearing problem and want to use the headphones. However, while the headphones do indeed work, when they are in use, the main TV speakers are muted. Is it possible to have the headphones plugged in, and have the main speakers operational at the same time. Thank you s.cannon@sisk.ie

Hi,

If I understand your requirements right, they would be:

  • headphones operate; simultaneously with
  • main speakers.
However, the LG 37LG5010 LCD TV has limitations that are:
  • once headphones plugged in, the main speakers cutoff;
  • there are no line/audio output at the rear of the unit for use of standard headphone/external amplifier.
A possible solution based on your post "...Is there additional kit...":
  • use the Digital Audio output (optical digital audio outputs [Toslink] or coaxial digital audio outputs);
  • connect a Zhaolu D2.5C DAC & Headphone Amp or similar products;
  • connect your headphone to the Zhaolu D2.5C;
  • Additionally, the Zhaolu D2.5 has RCA audio output that can be connected to an external audio amplifier or home theater receiver/system
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    An alternative is to use an external monitor pair (speaker/amp combo with headphone out) capable of accepting 24-bit/96kHz capable S/PDIF optical & coaxial. An example is Roland's MA-20D.

Unfortunately your set does not have the ability to do this without an internal modification. In the future, you should look for a set that also provides audio out jacks on the back for connection to a stereo. Those jacks are independent of the speakers and would provide you with the flexability to use an adaptive listening device.

It is impossible to have the headphones plugged in, and have the main speakers operational at the same time without taking the tv apart and modifying the internal wiring.

the only way to ddo that is by paying a technician to modify your TV, this will invalidate the guaranty.

    There is no kit, the technician will just have to cut one of the female jack wirings, and solder it on another contact, that will allow you to use headphones without excluding speakers.

    Another solution is buying external speakers and an audio splitte like this 3.5mm Splitter, 6 ft.
    Then buy external speaker and connect both headphones and speakers to splitter.
    Here you get external speakers 2-Way Satellite Speakers or Portable Speakers- Diamond Tower Light

Check the back of the TV & look for the audio-out RCA jacks - hook it up with an audio receiver.

LG 55LS4500 55 in. TV has sound through speakers, no audio except a hum from headphones and the optical digital to analog output fiber lights up but no sound output What board is bad?


Hi Louis,
The audio circuitry is located in the main board. Try unplugging the TV for a while and try again if the audio comes back.
I would suggest to check all your settings in the audio section first and if everything seems OK then the main board should be replaced.

Will tv volume and headphone work at the same time? someone can hear headphones at the same time the tv


If I understand your question correctly, you want to use headphone AND be able to play through the speakers at the same time?
Not usually. Most headphone circuits disconnect output to the speakers when you plug in headphones.

Hi I have just bought a 2nd hand lg tv 37lg5010 does anyone no how I can remove the stand please


Lay it on the bed and look up into the bottom of the stand for any mounting screws. If you locate them, remove them and there may be some clips that snap in when the base is installed and will require some applied pressure to release.

I bought wireless headphones, how do i connect them to the TV wirelessly


Normally the wireless headphones have a transmitter that send audio via wireless to the wireless headphones.
The transmitter needs to be plugged into the headphone outlet on the TV. This will switch off the speakers on the TV and sends the audio to the wireless headphones.

When we plug in hubby's remote headphones (he has a hearing impediment), it cuts off the sound and I can't hear it.


That is normal operating mode when using the headphone jack. The only way for you to do this without cutting the sound from the speaker so you can hear the sound (if your remote headphone has the Line level input), is to use the audio line out (WHITE and RED RCA jacks) to feed the remote headphone unit.
What the make and model of the remote Headphone system that you have?

Lg lcd tv 37lc2d no headphones socket - how do i connect headphones?


You can purchase a cable to connect to the Audio Out ports on the back of the TV. It will have 2 RCA connectors on one side that plugs into the TV and a 1/4" stereo jack on the other end that you will connect your headphones to. You could even pickup a pair of wireless headphones... they will have a volume control on them! I hope this helps.
