Audio from tv is not restored by turning off power on headphones
The audio from the TV cannot be heard when I turn off the power on the Sennheiser RS-120 wireless headphones. The connection from the transmitter to the the TV has to be physically disconnected to hear the normal TV audio.

Re: audio from tv is not restored by turning off power on...
It sounds as if you are plugging the base into a standard headphone jack located on the Television set.
RCA Headphone jacks (incl mini) automatically stop the sound output to the main speakers on almost every set I have seen.. or home stereo.. etc etc
In other words you can take a standard RCA jack.. with nothing connected to it.. plug it in while the music or sound is coming out the main speaker.. and it will cut off the output to those speakers..
If you set has audio outputs on the back.. preferably Fixed Audio Out .. you will need to connect your base unit to those.. turn your set volume to 0 and adjust the headset volume using the control on the right ear-cup.
If you have variable audio out.. you will need to go into your TV sets setup menu.. turn off the speaker.. and turn up the set until you achieve a signal and decent volume through the headset.
If you are missing these connections..your current “work around” is your only solution.

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,
You should be able to hook the tv to the cable box the cable box should have your A/V jacks. If so unplug the PS3 plug in your receiver to the cable box and run the PS3 through the receiver. Also check the side of the tv for HDMI inputs if you have HMDI you can go to Radio Shack and get a converter to go from HDMI into A/V
You should have either a digital audio out port in the back of your tv or color coded analog out ports. Are you sure you have the cables plugged into the appropriate ports? I made the same mistake when hooking mine up, sometimes the print identifying the ports is very small. Also, since the headphones are wireless you may be receiving some kind of interference from somewhere. If you live in an apartment complex or next to a power substation that could be an issue.
i have no solution but the same problem.
the tr120 worked properly with a GRUNDIG-TV-unit.
After replacing the TV-unit with a SAMSUNG, the problem occurs.
I take the audio-signal out of the scart-connector (the unit has an earphone-connector but cuts of the internal speaker - this is not wanted in our usage).
might be an impedance-problem? or the scart-audio-output is too low for the headset-transmitter?
any further ideas and hints to get rid of the problem?
I'm having the same problem with the RS140. Only a few weeks old, and no sound at all coming out (not even the beeps). Have replaced batteries and tried a different audio source. Base station lights are on and indicating it is receiving an audio signal, but nothing is going go the headphones.
