Using 2 Pc speakers on my Tv

I hooked up my pc speakers via headphone jack today and while it works, the sound seems a little off to me. It's almost like it's mono instead of stereo but i'm not really sure about this. Now this TV's audio is stereo but could using the headphone jack instead of RCA adapter's cause it to go into mono? If so, if I bought an RCA adapter would I have to actually adjust the volume via the speaker itself? My menu doesn't have any variable control and im not sure if the inputs in back have variable or not. Thanks

Re: Using 2 Pc speakers on my Tv

1)probable incompatibility issue--for comparison did you try a set of headphones? 2)The RCA audio outputs on the tv can go to an amplifier that has speakers attached,ie surround sound. 3)Caution==never try to alter vol level at spkr!

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.

Samsung LE37R888D LCD TV. No sound from the main speakers or Line out.

    This problem arises due to cross pin connection of the headphone socket.Mostly frequent use of the headphones result this situation (no sound via external speakers). Call any service man he will provide you the services at nominal charges. And if you can do it by yourself then approach to the headphone section and just adjust the headphone pin, This will solve the problem.
Thanks for using fixya.

the speaker may have quit working. or possibly if the t.v has a headphone jack something may be in the hole causing te=he t.v to send audio to the jack instead of the speakers. if that is not it if you do have a jack for headphones you can plug in an adapter to hook up your media to an external speaker device, the first place to look is this jack, if no sound will come through your headphones either thanyou have an internal problem

Low Volume from headphone jack...

I do not think that this TV does not have a separate circuitry with its volume control for the earphone. If your earphone is mono, are you using a plug that is mono to connect the speaker?
Try using AWG 20 if you could to see if that helps.
Good Luck.

Can I hook up external speakers to this T.V.?

This tv carries two sound out phono plugs, but if for some reason they are not there ( date of mfr ) you can use the headphone out jack. Just go to any radio shack store and explain what you are trying to do and im sure they will be happy to assist you.

good luck,

Sony bravia to my P/C

You need to wire up the audio from the computer.
The 15 pin cable is only the video, next to the input on the tv should be a red and white phono connector which should say audio or line in, get a cable that has a headphone type jack on one end and 2 phono red and white plugs, connect the headphone jack into the back of the pc, should be the green audio out where you would usually connect pc speakers, then the phono plugs into the back of the tv and insert them into the phono ports on the back of the tv that say line or audio in. Turn the TV to PC and thats it.

hope this helps

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.
