What are connections and connectors for audio output to wireless headset


Hi Richard,

First, you'll need to determine which type of input(s) the wireless headset transmitter has. Most common is the 3.5mm stereo plug designed to slip into the headphone jack of a TV, MP3 player, cell phone, etc. Some transmitters have adapters in the box to allow connecting to the Left and Right channel RCA / phono style jacks found on other components such as CD, DVD, VCR, Stereo receivers / amplifiers, etc.

You'll need to find OUTPUTS of the CD and TV that match the plug on the wireless headset transmitter. If yours doesn't include adapters to go from say the RCA jacks mentioned above - to whatever connector that the transmitter input has - you'll need to go to your local Radio Shack store or similar store to see if they can provide an adapter that will allow you to connect.

Here are a couple plugs / adapters:

Above: A "3.5mm stereo patch cable". Your transmitter may have a cable with an end like this to plug into the TV's headphone jack.




25683604-gy4zxbmnj5ndu14q12lmwneo-2-1.jpg Above: A "3.5mm female stereo jack to RCA stereo male plug" adapter that would allow the top cable to connect to the Left and Right audio output jacks on a typical CD, DVD, etc. device.

These cables / adapters are typically $5 to $10 maximum.

I hope this helps and good luck!

The speakers no long produce sound after using the headphone jack,,disconnected jack , still no sound


When you plug in the headphones, the jack itself routes the signal away from the speakers. When you unplug the headphones, the jack has contacts that close again, routing signal to the speakers. If the jack contacts are dirty, they won't close correctly. I suspect were you to clean the contacts, you'd solve the problem.

Instructions
1
Set up the transmitter. Wireless headphones rely on a transmitter that sends audio via infrared or radio waves to your headset. Use the digital audio output (coaxial or optical), RCA outputs (red and white) or headphone jack on your TV to connect the transmitter. The connection will depend upon which outputs are available on your TV and/or the transmitter.
2
Use an RCA-to-headphone adapter. If you don't have a headphone jack on your TV and the transmitter includes only a headphone connection, connect an RCA-to-female headphone connector. This will allow you to plug the wireless transmitter into the female headphone end and then hook the RCA ends into your television's audio outputs. You may also need a 3.5 mm (mini jack)-to-1/4-inch adapter if the headphone plug on the transmitter doesn't match the television jack.

3
Set the transmitter on top of, or next to, the television. For infrared transmitters, you'll need a direct path between the headphones and the transmitter. Placing the transmitter on or near the TV will allow you to take advantage of the clear path you already have.
4
Plug in the transmitter and turn it on. Charge the headphones if necessary.
5
Turn on the headphones. Adjust the volume and settings and you're ready to watch TV.

I tried hooking up my laptop to my 37lh20 tv. I connected the avi to the pc input and an audio cable fro the headset jack on the tv. If I put the tv input on rgb pc I get the picture but no sound and if...


Unless you hook HDMI to HDMI, you won't carry sound across the HDMI cable. If you're using a VGA to HDMI converter, you'll get the picture but no sound.

I have a feeling the headset jack on the TV is an output rather than an input. Most TVs accept HDMI, RCA, or a digital audio input (either coaxial or optical). Unless you have a S/PDIF optical output from your laptop (and you obviously don't have an HDMI output), then your only other choice is likely to get a cable that splits a 1/8" headset type connector into two RCA plugs that you'll plug into an AUDIO IN input on your TV.

I can't hook up my sony wireless headphones to my new tochiba tv


there is no headset jack on the Toshiba 46g300u. It is a bummer. If you add a sound system for $200 bucks or more, they usually come with a headset jack. I sure wish this tv came with a jack, I mean, how can it not?

My system is stuck on (c2) headphone and I can not any sound, unless I put the headphones in.


Hi Steve,
This is an indication of faulty earphone jack, this is where the headset directly hooked up. See sample picture below.


jdvillanueva_20.jpg

When the you hooked up the headset to this jack, internal switch will released the contact to cut the audio goes to the main speaker out of the unit. Once you pulled out the headset plug, the audio will back to the main output speaker out through this switch.
In your cased, there's a malfunction in the internal switch of the earphone jack that's you haven't sound output at the main speaker out.
You may spray contact cleaner directly to the earphone jack while inserting and pulling out the headset plug to clean the lead. If the symptom still persist, you must replaced it with new one to back the unit in normal operation again.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya

I would like to hook up wireless headphones to a 1999 Sylvania 26-inch tv. It does not have headphone jacks, so I have to use the RC plugs in back. How can I cut the sound to the television speakers while...


The RCA jacks (Red and White) usually have full-level output and are not affected by the volume control. (Without those you can buy an adaptor for a 1/8" stereo jack to RCA females and plug the RCA males there--that may be volume controlled or not or both.) The RCAs are meant for an audio system that would control the volume but should work fine with a headset that has its own control. -Ken

Proscan 32lb30Q. I need to hook up wireless


You can buy a digital to analogue converter that connects to your COAX digital output and then connects to you RCA jacks. They run around $75. The only problem I've encountered is the DVD does not work through the COAX output, just TV. I'm looking into it.

Please take out the batteries from the dongle and headset for 20 minutes.

Insert a new battery into the dongle, plug into your player and turn it on.

Wait for 2 minutes, insert another new battery into the headset and turn it on.

It will take about 2 minutes to connect each other at first time.
