Headset not working

A 95 year old lady ask me (not wise to electronics) to hook up a Sennheiser RS 110 headset to her old TV with no A/V in puts.. The person who gave her the headset also gave her a Nexxteck Video RF Modulator. I plugged the 75 ohm cable from the antenna into the modulator at the ?ANT? and the cable from the ?TO TV? to the TV. Plugged the black and red plugs, from the headset, into the ?L and R AUDIO? jacks of the modulator. Then plugged the power cord in and turned the ?CHANNEL 3/4? switch to 4. The ?ON? light on the modulator goes on when the switch for the plug in turned on, but goes off right away. The ?ON? light for the headset goes on when I unplug the audio jacks, but will stay on when the jacks are plugged back in. There was sound from the TV set for two days but now there is no sound from the set, and there was never any sound from the headset. The picture is unaffected.

Re: headset not working

A modulator is designed for the reverse of what you are trying to use it for. It is meant to be a local TV transmitter i.e. video and audio source INPUT for the TV. It converts A/V to a UHF radio signal that the TV can receive. If the TV has no audio OUTPUTS or headphone jack then headphones cannot be used with this TV. As for the new problem with the TV, I'd like to think this is co-incidental and not your fault. The fantastic thing to do would be to go and buy the lady an LCD TV of a the biggest size you can afford. Most have a headphone socket.

My 15 year old Home theater RCA tv turns pink with diagonal white lines after 15 minutes

Are you using a component video cable to feed into the TV? If so... your cable may be bad. If you have different video outputs from the home theater system then use one of them such as a yellow composite video or S Video (round with multiple pins) . However, the fact that it's happening after a period of time suggests that something electronic is about to go. If you have another TV in the house to connect the system to then go ahead and do that. If it works fine on another tv then you have a problem with your old tv.

Hook up tv/dvd

All you need is A/V cable. These are yellow, white, and red. If you have an old model TV that doesn't have these, you can get an RF modulator from any electronics store, which will enable you to connect the DVD/VCR combo.

Have you tried putting new batteries? Do that first if it still doesn't work. I would get a universal remote.

Hooking up my DVD/VHS player to TV & Convertor box

I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.

I had my older bose 321 hooked up through vcr and sounded great. Then hooked it up through directv receiver and sounded better. then switched from direct to comcast and hooked the bose up throught the comcast hd receiver and the volume is aweful. same deal, have to crank it up high. Since the stereo built into the tv sounds so much better I disconnected the bose and am going to sell it.

Hook up

well u cannot hook almost any devices with the SC-HT500.
I have this homecinema system for 5 years now, and i had to buy another stand alone DivX player to hook it up, but can't get the sound in dolby from the standalone player since the panasonic SC-HT500 has only 2 analog stereo RCA ports (audio in) in the back and a scart (A/V out) and component video (Video out).
At that time it was a very good system, but since i have bought a Full HD LCD tv with 1080p capabilities, I realised that my home cinema system i.e the Panasonic SC-HT500 is kind of useless, in the sense that you cannot even change the player for another one since the whole spaker and power connections are made trhough a special cable from the subwoofer. :(
best solution is that put the system back in a corner and get a new system which is not an all-in-one system. Preferrable get home cinema systems that come with a receiver, separate dvd player and speakers and subwoofer hooked to the receiver.
you asked how to hook these devices to your tv,, well the panasonic dvd recorder is better if you connect it via HDMI cable if you can. In the other case, connecting them with a scart cable would be another solution.
