Bravia headphone jack problem

My Sony Bravia tv does noy play sound as it is turned off because it detects that headphones are plugged in but there is nothing plugged into this socket.
I tried plugging and unplugging headphones in but to no avail.
The sound does work through the headphones.
Is there some way of fixing this through the setup options menu. I have tried but the cure must be obscure or non-existent.

Just mute the TV and you will get sound out of your headphones. You may have to turn the TV sound up though.

Probably its not a problem. On the menu You should have a Headphone audio level control (when needed you can mute the set speakers and still have headphone audio).

How do i connect my soni bravia television to internet


Hook up a computer to it. The tv could have an hdmi connector or monitor connector (check the back of the television to see which type of connectors you have available) so just plug a cable in from your pc to the tv.

For sound, a simple computer cable plugs into the headphone jack of the computer to the back of the television. If you have a PC, you may have a series of connectors for stereo surround sound systems (like a sound card). I use a simple jack that plugs into the headphone jack (stereo speaker jack) and also plugs into the pc audio in port on the tv. Now I just select the input (pc) from the sony menu and select the option for sound input and voila. As long as the pc is connected to the internet, your tv is your new monitor.

What type of audio connection is needed to connect headphones to the Sony Bravia, model KDL-40S5100


The problem wiht this TV is that it does not have headphone output jack (spec: http://www.reviewed.com/product/Sony/Bravia-KDL-40S5100/specs.htm)

You will have to use:
1) AUDIO line out jacks (RCA RED and WHITE JACKS) of the TV connected to small headphone amplifier to drive your headphone.
2) you will have to trun off the TV built-in speakers using on screen audio set up.
3) Set the TV audio line out to be VARIABLE instead of FIXED level if you want to use the remote control to control the level of the audio output feeding the headphone amplifier.

As you can see, it is real simple setup.

Example of headphone amp;

Same one at AMAZON: http://www.amazon.com/Upbeat-Audio-T613-BNC-Boostaroo-Application/dp/B000EIWCFE/ref=pd_sxp_grid_pt_1_0

Notes: you will need RCA plugs to mini-stereo phone jack adapter since this unit does not have RCA INPUT JACKS.
