Question about Samsung Televison & Video
This TV does not have a headphone socket, which is unusual. There are audio outputs (RCA phono) which may be used with an amplifier or tape deck to drive the headphones.

User problem!! The main TV volume and the headphone volume work independently so you can have the TV volume set at zero and use the headphone volume. However I suggest getting a pair of headphones with it's own volume control.

IF your tv is capable of using headphones it will have a little jack with a head phone symbol over it or under it most likely. IF not you can buy a home theater system which would hook up to your tv and some of these have an option to hook up headphones or even ipods and usb devices.

At present, the square connector is what is called an "Optical" connector. It's purely digital and transmits digital data via what looks to us like a RED LIGHT. Your headphones are incompatible. Your heaphones have an analog connection on RCA Phono type connections. The type you usually get on the back of hifi equipment.
The pannasonics DO have a headphone socket, but it is the small 3.5mm type socket. a small round hole that looks slightly larger than a pin head. It normally has a small diagram of a pair of headphones above or below the socket to indicate what it is.
In order to connect your headphones to your set you will need a stereo,male 3.5mm jack to two RCA Phono jacks.
If your current lead on your headphones has "male" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold points sticking out.
If your current lead on your headphones has "female" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold surrounds with holes in.
With this in mind, if you have male ends you will require a stereo 3.5mm jack to stereo female Rca Phono vice versa so that they basically lock into eachother forming a "Constant chain".
I have tried to explain this as best I can, I hope you've managed to get the idea of what I'm saying.
You will either need this :
or this :
Sometimes the colours of connectors vary. Just remember that Red to Red (for right hand side) and White to White or Black To White or Black To Black (for left)
