Hi,
You may have a bad cable. Go pick up one of those cables designed for iPods that plugs into the headphone jack on the player, that ends with two RCA plugs. If that cures it, the other cable was bad.
The BEST way to do it though, is if there is a docking station made for your player that has RCA connectors on the back, so that you can use normal RCA cables.

What are connections and connectors for audio output to wireless headset


Hi Richard,

First, you'll need to determine which type of input(s) the wireless headset transmitter has. Most common is the 3.5mm stereo plug designed to slip into the headphone jack of a TV, MP3 player, cell phone, etc. Some transmitters have adapters in the box to allow connecting to the Left and Right channel RCA / phono style jacks found on other components such as CD, DVD, VCR, Stereo receivers / amplifiers, etc.

You'll need to find OUTPUTS of the CD and TV that match the plug on the wireless headset transmitter. If yours doesn't include adapters to go from say the RCA jacks mentioned above - to whatever connector that the transmitter input has - you'll need to go to your local Radio Shack store or similar store to see if they can provide an adapter that will allow you to connect.

Here are a couple plugs / adapters:

Above: A "3.5mm stereo patch cable". Your transmitter may have a cable with an end like this to plug into the TV's headphone jack.




25683604-gy4zxbmnj5ndu14q12lmwneo-2-1.jpg Above: A "3.5mm female stereo jack to RCA stereo male plug" adapter that would allow the top cable to connect to the Left and Right audio output jacks on a typical CD, DVD, etc. device.

These cables / adapters are typically $5 to $10 maximum.

I hope this helps and good luck!

How do I connect my mp3 to play in my sonyTa-Ax301


You need a 3.5mm to stereo phono/RCA cable
30117e72-b1d8-4c87-a816-ed8245f7fbe9.png

Plug the red and white ends in to any of the following sockets that are free - Tuner, Tape In, CD, Aux, Video In. They all do the same job. The names are just suggestions, they're not mandatory.

Plug the headphone jack plug in to the MP3 player's headphone socket. Turn the volume up on the MP3 player to about half way. Then select the source input on the amp that matches where you plugged the cable.

That's it. Hope this helps.

Buy a lead with headphone jack to red and white RCA/phono. Jack goes to iPad/iPhone/MP3 player. Red and white goes to Aux/Game/Line input socket if the unit has one. Play your music.

I have an older home stereo system that i would like to connect to my vizio tv. I have a 3.5mm audio to rca plug. Coming out of the headphone jack on the tv, it plays no sound out of the system. Although...


I suspect what you're wanting to do is take the audio output from the TV and run it through your stereo system to leverage the large speakers. Correct?

I suggest using the RCA audio jacks (red and white pair) on the back of the TV. Most TV's still have these. Some are tied to a specific component, and some are general for all sound coming out of the TV. You connect this to the input RCA jacks on your stereo system.

The headphone jack on the TV could also work, but I suspect it may have a low level output. I don't understand how you say your MP3 player plays fine through the headphone jack, as that's an output, not an input. Unless there's some other jack?

How to hook up to home amp


If home amp has a phono input and you have no turntable, plug the output of the MP3 player into the phono input and begin with the volume turned all the way down. If you do not have a phono input, you can plug something like a DJ mixer in to get that extra level of amplification you want for comfortable listening. If you do that, the MP3 player would plug into the turntable input and the mixer output would go to the available line level input of the home amp.

The CD player has either the coaxial connector, which is not common for home amps, and a pair of "RCA" jacks (right and left) which are.
The CD output can be connected to any avaialble line level input, such as anunused "Aux", "Tape In" "MD/VCR audio in, etc.

I want to connect an iPod to my Marantz SR 5600, what type of cord do I need?


You need a jack-2cinch (differen name is jack to 2 RCA) cable. Jack goes to your iPod's phones output, cinch/RCA to amplifier (connect it to CD or DVD analog section at the back). While playing set volume to 50% to avoid distorted sound. This way you can connect any MP3 player to your amplifier.

Can I plug my MP3 player into the aux. socket on my car radio, with the appropriate cable and play the stored music?


You should be able to do that as long as you have the right cable.

Most of the mp3 players have a "mini-stereo" jack (3.5mm) and some car stereos have the same type of jack for "aux" input, and others car stereos have RCA jacks for the "aux" input.

Even if the jacks are not the same type, you can use an adapter cable that converts the mini-stereo jack to an RCA jack. You can find them at many places like Best Buy, Circuit City or Radio Shack.

Depending on the type of car stereo you have, you would normally press the source button to change between the tuner, cd player, aux or whatever you may have connected to the stereo. You may even have a seperate button to press for the "aux" input.

I hope this was helpful to you, if you need more information just ask, and please give more info on the type of mp3 player and the make and model number of the car stereo.

Buzzing sound and can't open stereo


Again RCA stereos **** for this factor, cheap transformers, replace the transformer and see if that helps as it seems to be the most problem with most RCA systems I've repaired in the past.
