SOURCE: headphone socket

Hi twelvetwelve

Are you able to get access to the rear of the socket and use a small screwdriver to push out the parts of the plug that have come adrift inside the socket? You may have to actually remove the socket from its PCB to get access. If you cannot remove the offending parts, then you may have to replace the socket. There is not alot more that you can do unfortunatly.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

SOURCE: Problem Installing batteries in cordless headphones

Having removed the soft pad, there is a flat sheet of plastic attatched that goes round the speaker (sort of doughnut shaped, with a hole in the middle where the speaker sticks out). Carefully pull this perpendicular to the speaker, and it'll come off (the four rectangles you can see on the surface of the sheet are pegs that click into the main body to hold it in place). Under there will be one battery compartment. Repeat both sides, and you're done. This stumped me for ages!

SOURCE: Marantz SR7500 headphone jack stopped working

There is a contact inside the jack that is closed when the plug is inserted. Apparently this is no longer happening. This should be an easy repair for a qualified technician.

SOURCE: I have no instruction manual but would appreciate someone telling me whether I should charge them up with headphones switched on or off. I don't want to damage them! Many thank you's!!!

I decided to take a chance and charged them with earphones switched off. It worked fine. Thankyou for having a such a useful site. I'll certainly recommend you to my friends, even though I wasn't helped on this occasion! If I were to come up with a more difficult problem, then I'd willingly pay for assistance.

I have a set of T 912 wireless headphones. I am unable to set them up on the TV. I am using the white and red cables from the base station to the TV audio red and white. Do you have any instructions on...


The audio jacks on the TV are most likely inputs, not outputs. They're meant to take the audio signal from something like a DVD player, along with the video input on another jack, so you can play it through the TV. There isn't an audio signal coming out from those jacks, and if you connect your headphone transmitter to them all you'll get is silence. Almost all sets now have at least one set of AV inputs, but most don't give you outputs. The manufacturers figure the TV is just a display device, and not a signal source.

Unfortunately, there isn't any easy way to connect your wireless headphones if the TV doesn't have audio output jacks or a headphone connector. If you're comfortable with soldering and willing to do some modification to your TV, it's possible to add a headphone jack. Most people don't want to start tinkering with their sets, though.

If you're using your TV on a cable system without a converter box and the cable hooks right to the set, you're out of luck unless you're willing to add a headphone jack as I mentioned before. But if you have a cable converter box, or you're using a satellite receiver or other set-top box, you can use your headphones with those. These devices typically have direct audio and video outputs available on the rear panel, and you can use that audio output to feed the headphone transmitter.

What most people do these days is use a home theater receiver along with the TV. All sources (the cable box, DVD player, video game console, audio CD player, etc.) connect to the receiver, and the receiver's audio and video outputs go to the corresponding input jacks on the TV. This way, the TV is just the end of the line. The receiver also would provide an output for the wireless headphone transmitter. This system offers some advantages. You'll be able to connect the proper speakers to enjoy surround sound when not using headphones. And you'll be able to use your wireless headphones with the tuner and audio sources like music CDs when not watching TV.

I just received for my birthday, a RCA 900 MHz headphones. Followed the instructions but cannot get it to work. I tried to install it on a Hitasha TV. Can you help me?


Hi,
First you need to make a test to adjust your headphones wireless system..
.pls follow the step below:
  • "Connect the RCAheadphone base" TO " headphones output of TV" with 3.5mm stereo headphone jack cable (than Tv should mute ) RCA pilot lamp should flicker in parallel to voice coming from TV
  • RCA headphone should have 2 different rotary adjustment on it..one "Volume" and the second "Frequency" adjustment
  • while TV talking , adjust slowly the "frequency rotary dial" to catch the headphone transmitter coming from RCA headphone base,when you catch it you will hear the voice of TV,(sometimes fine adjustment makes it better ) than adjust volume properly..
  • .After this pls do not touch Frequency dial any more..Just Turn it on ,and Volume adjustment ..Thats it..
  • After completion of this test ,I recommend you to switch / use "RCA Audio output plugs-white/Red cable " on the back of TV instead of TV's headphone output ,since it mutes the whole sound..RCA output plugs work independently from the TV's master volume control..
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

My problem concerns my new Philips SBC HC8445 wireless headphones. After using them for some time, the sound starts to cut in and out. First I thought it was because batteries were running low, but after...


after NiCd batteries are recharged many times they develop a memory and will not maintain a charge past the time that they were again put on the charger. If this doesn't make sense, do this: buy new batteries and install them, and keep the old ones for spares

Just bought used pair of wharfedale 28637WH headphones dont know how to connect them to av unit. i cant download manual as using ps3 to do this. can u help with this? thanks craig


The base station for these headphones will have to be plugged into your AV unit. This is done with either a 1/8" jack or a 1/4" jack. Once the base station is plugged in, you will be able to use your wireless headphones.

My Sony STR-AV320 spontaniously goes into protect mode


on start up all sony units conduct a speaker inductence capacitance test for integrity regardless of speaker settings, check the rear connections carefull that no stray loose wires are touching at all, the other common fault is the infrared start up circuit has a bad relay op amp and this is due to a broken bad solder joint to truly know you must remove the speakers from the back use only head phones to check for repeated operation, if no problems one speaker at a time is added and retested, slowly many times when the fault appears bang your there, if not off to the shop as the fix is sony based only no diy parts are available since the numbers are epoxyed over speaker wires should always be 14 guage or bigger otherwise troubles with resistence over heating at extended volumes

I have a wireless headphones the only number i can see is model f0461b on the trasmitter. The transmitter and headphone are not comunicating the lights are red not blue.How do i recalibrate them so they...


In rare cases, the FreePulse Headphones may loose synchronization with the receiver. If this occurs the following steps will re-establish the connection by putting both the headphones and the receiver in discoverable mode (actively searching for another bluetooth device it can connect to).
Putting the headphones in discoverable mode:
Press and hold the power button (located next to the charging port on the right earpiece) on the headphones. The LED on the button will go through three states in this order:
  • Blinking Red
  • Off (continue to hold. the LED will be off for several seconds)
  • Alternately blinking red and blue. (The headphones are now in discoverable mode and you can release the button at this point. The headphones will remain in this state for 30 seconds).
Putting the receiver in discoverable mode:
Press and hold the power button (located on the side of the receiver opposite the headphone jack).The LED on the button will go through three states in this order:
  • Blinking Red
  • Off (continue to hold. the LED will be off for several seconds)
  • Alternately blinking red and blue. (The reciever is now in discoverable mode and you can release the button at this point. The reciever will remain in this state for 30 seconds).
Re-establishing the connection:
To re-establish the connection between the headphones and the reciever, put the headphones and the receiver in discoverable mode at the same time. It will take a few seconds for the two devices to establish the connection. Once the connection has been established the LEDs on both the headphones and receiver will glow solid blue.
