if you are using a cable box make sure the cable box remote volume is also turned up go into the customer menu on the tv and verify that the speakers are on under the audio settings

Hello Jarvis1,

This is an indication that the actual sound output is working, but the amplifiers to the speakers are not. How you could take care of this is to check in there are any loose connections to the speakers. Then check if you have sound coming from the leads of the output stereo amplifier (You will need the schematic and an audio tracer/tracker to find this location and test for sound). I would venture that there would be no sound from the amplifier. If not you will have to replace the amplifier chip. I would suggest getting a qualified TV technician to perform this task. If you do have sound at the output of the strereo amplifier chip, then it might be a case of the earphone jack switch being broken, let me explain when you plug in your earphone the speakers are disconnected by a switch in the earphone jack if this switch is broken it could disable the speakers and produce these results. There is also the possibility that you have the speaks disabled from the menu of your TV (check this too, actually check this first).

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

You'll need an Audio Out connection on the tv for surround to work properly. The signal level and the impedence mismatch of a headphones jack would not work or work poorly.

My volume is very low and I can only hear from one speaker


If your TV has a headphone jack, plug some headphones into it and see if the volume works there. If so, make sure the speakers are correctly connected to the TV and that both the wires and speakers are good. (Try other speakers).

Sennheiser hookup to noncompatable Samsung DLP TV


Ok if I understand what you are saying. You are going from your TVs audio jack into an amplifier TEAC AG-V8050 and then into the Sennheiser T1250 unit? This is done to amplify the sound so your wife can hear the TV via Infared into headphones I am guessing. The connections would have to be as follows. TV RCA jack (Installed by someone to TV audio Output section, most likely the speaker) to the Amplifier TEAC AG-V8050 via RCA cable then from the Amplifier via RCA cable to the Sennheiser TI 250 IR Transmitter. The transmitter then takes the audio input and turns it into a digital signal which is transmitted via IR to headphones which your wife is using. First of all the amp TEAC AG-V8050 is not needed. what happend here is the person doing the installation took sound off of a preamp to avoid having to deal with the TV volume control. This works but it makes matters harder. So here is how you troubleshoot this problem: 1) Disconnect the amplifier and plug the RCA jack of the TV into the RCA jack of a set of amplified Mono headphones. (This is to determine if sound is coming from the TV) If not the problem is in the TV audio section and you will need to take it to a TV repair shop. 2) If audio is coming through the headset the trouble is in the amp or the sennhiser unit. To test the sennhiser unit: plug the sennhiser into the audio out of a VCR and listen in the headphones for sound. If you have sound, the sennheiser is good and the problem may be in the amplifier, but if you do not have sound the the sennheiser is bad. 3)Connect the audio out of the VCR into the audio in of the amplifier and plug the output of the amplifier into the sennheiser which tested good with just the VCR alone. If no sound is present then the amp is your culprit. Once you find out which component is the problem, I would suggest finding a rapair shop here on FitYa to repair your unit or having an electronics technician come to you to fix the bad component. This should help, Thank you, Shuttle83

I have a Panasonic Sa-HT930 surround sound system. Plugging in headphones does not turn off the speakers, yet I can still hear sound through the headphones. How do I get the speakers to turn off??


The switch of the main speaker does not engage when you plug inn your earphone it's suppose to turn off the main speaker.you need to clean the contact of the switch of the jack.Open the cover of reciever and go to the earphone jack spray it with a contact cleaner then try again.if the same thing happen replace the jack with a new one.

I have a Toshiba 50HX70... I fixed the convergence issue around 6 months ago. Now the sound does not work... I turn it all the way up and you barely hear anything... I did move it recently, did I know...


Best best would be to try the following:

Start with taking the back cover off of the tv.

1) Verify if you can hear any sound whatsoever out of the speakers. If so, that would indicate that the speakers are still connected to the circuit board. If not, then trace the wires from the speakers to where they plug on to the board.

2) if you hear sound (hiss) in the speakers, but not the audio signal from your program you are watching, then look to ensure all connecters are fully seated around the RCA jacks in the back.

If those two do no produce results, then could be a solder joint on the board finally failed after moving the tv, or the amplifier for the speakers has failed. If you hear sound though as in step 1 above, i would doubt it is the amplifier IC.

I've just purchased a Sanyo 19" LCD High Definition Televison for my aunt. She is hard of hearing and I've used ear phones on her last two Tv's. Is there a way to attach ear phones to this TV? Thank...


Most TV manufacturers no longer put headphone jacks on the TV's. None of the audio outputs will have the correct impedance for a set of headphones. The most reasonable option I think would be to see if your local electronics or audio store has a small headphone amplifier that can be plugged into the audio line out RCA jacks.
