Question about Audio Players & Recorders

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.

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 sennhauser 110 only work on left speaker ,nothing ,no sound on right?????headphones


The first thing to do is to disconnect the Sennheiser wireless unit and try another headphone, preferably a cable type and see if both channels work. If the sound is OK on both channels, the fault is within the headphones. If you are lucky it will be the wireless unit plug or the cable and can easily be tested and repaired by somebody familiar with electronics. Otherwise you will probably need to have it repaired by a service shop or a technician. I hope the guarantee is stilll valid.

Should I hook it up to my cable box or tv?


Hook it to the TV. That way if you play a dvd you'll hear it. Cell phones will interfere, as well as cordless phones, so there's not much to do about that.

We have purchased sennheiser RS 120 wireless headphones but find our LG tv model 32LS3450 - TA does not have audio out, is there a solution?


Your TV should have Audio out somewhere, even if its digital audio out, you could output to a receiver and then hook your headphones to the receiver.

I am attempting to use my sennheiser rs 110 headphones with my lcd-led tv. the componet jacks coming out of the transmitter are red and black. All my componets on the tv are red and white. so when i plug...


What are you plugging your 2 RCA connectors (from the headphones) into on the television?
You are correct, usually:
White = Left Red = Right

In this case
Black = Left Red = Right
Not sure....guess some manufacturers need to be different...
Back to the issue,
You to need to connect the Black to White and Red to Red to the TV BUT you need to make sure you are connecting to an OUTPUT and not to an INPUT on the TV. Most newer TV's do have an "audio out RCA jacks" on the TV but not all. It should be labeled at the connector if it is an output, or just another input. You can always consult the TV manual to be sure.

Few things you can do to test
  • Does your TV have a "headphone jack", use the adapter (2 RCA female - 3.5mm connector) to plug into the headphone jack and see if there is sound
  • Connect the Black and Red RCAs from the headphones directly to the another output, like a DVD player, CD Player etc....

I hope this helps,
Magoo
