SOURCE: Sylvania TV Headphone Jack Problem (Specifically

If the audio jack [headphone] has two black bands then it is probably stereo. The first reason you tv phone jack is messed up is because you have an internal ground problem. You may have to resolder this...hope the board is not cracked. I would not advise you to jury rig an outside connection. To do so, you may short the audio chip and that is another problem...like no audio at all. Find someone who knows something about tv repair.

Looking for a replacement part: headphone Jack MSJ-2-72794516 for Toshiba TV model 20AF46C


Disconnect the jack from TV, and keep it with you when you go to buy an other one. It is the best way. Mark all the connections to the jack prior to disconnecting [color coded]; so that you can reconnect the new jack without any confusion.

How can I get headphones to work with my Symphonic WF203 TV?


This set doesn't have a headphone jack, nor does it have RCA audio output jacks. Without one or the other, you're out of luck connecting headphones to this TV.

I remember a product some years ago that allowed adding headphones using a small microphone placed in front of the speaker. This was hooked to a little amplifier that ran the headphones so the volume could be independently controlled. It was marketed as a way to let "hearing-impaired" family members listen to TV shows without needing to make it uncomfortably loud for others. I haven't looked, but something similar might still be available. It's cumbersome, though, and needs power, plus maybe being costly if you find one.

It's possible to add a headphone jack, but you need to know how to do electronic soldering. Find a spot on the case where you can make a hole and mount a headphone jack, then wire it to the speakers. If you want the headphones to cut off the speakers when plugged in, you need a switching jack, and the speaker wires need to be cut and connected to the correct terminals. The switch built into the jack then disconnects the speakers when the headphone plug is in. If you don't need to turn off the speakers it's a little easier. You just need to wire from the jack to the speaker terminals. I've added jacks on quite a few sets. If you don't feel up to it and don't know anyone who is, you can see if a TV shop (if there are any left in your area!) would do it. (The shop I used to work for charged about $20, including the jack, but that was over 10 years ago now.)

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

Where to hook up headphone jacks to allow TV speakers to continue working while using headphones I.E. I have jacks on front of TV but they do not give me out put sound. which ones should I use on back of...


Unless you have an external headphone amplifier, you need to use the headphone jack socket, if there is one. Some newer TV's allow for separate headphone volume and speaker volume control.
Have a look in your user manual.

Connecting headphones


I looked at the manual and I can't find any evidence that you have a headphone jack which is odd. I had 17" samsung and it had a headphone jack. The only thing I can think of is Wireless headphones. You could hook them up to your audio out rca jacks on your TV. I was just looking at a pair on amazon that had the right plug ins. But I don't want to say which ones because I don't want endorse a product when I don't know how well they work. They were reasonably priced. If this helps give me a vote please.

Have new lcd hdtv. Have old headphones can they


Yes. 2 possibilities:
1 - the new tv has a headphone jack - just plug them in.
2 - no headphone jack - buy a RCA to phone jack adaptor, plug it in the audio line out RCA connectors, plug the headphones into it and mute the tv.

Okay, sorry about the clarification request, I saw where the model number was on your request. Your tv is a Brocksonic Model # CTGV-5463TCT, correct?

According to Brocksonic this model tv does not come with a headphone jack. Sorry.

Audio output jacks


If I remember this tv correctly, check under the audio setting in the menu, most tv's including this on have variable output for the audio o/p. meaning the the o/p vol. is adjusted as the tv speaker vol. changes. some tv's will put out a fixed audio o/p to the rca jacks, but will only do this when the speakers are shut off in the menu (not muted, but off). I have run into this problem many times & have yet to find a better solution to getting a steady sound sound out of the o/p jacks.

No sound after pluging in headphones


Not unless you know how to work on a headphone jack and how the jack and the jack switchs work??? Also if you dont know about the HI Voltage saftey issues, it would be best for you to bring this set to a pro tech, as it shouldnt cost to much for a new headphone jack??. Good Luck
