There is a contact inside the jack that is closed when the plug is inserted. Apparently this is no longer happening. This should be an easy repair for a qualified technician.

Headphone output is usually dependent on the source's volume setting and are not a good way to transfer signal between devices. RCA is the way to go as it is independent of the volume control. Many TV's have a setting for the audio output to select variable or fixed (independent of the TV volume setting). Look for it.

Yes you can modify RCA cables to make bare wire tails.
If the unit has a sub o/p then you just connect up your sub bass unit to whatever the amp needs.
An RCA cable is 2 wire which is all you would normally need for sub bass speaker level signal.
It may be a good idea to eventually upgrade the wire size if you want really good sub bass as lower frequencies draw more current and so require more copper.
Please let me know if this any help, thanks for using FixYa.

At present, the square connector is what is called an "Optical" connector. It's purely digital and transmits digital data via what looks to us like a RED LIGHT. Your headphones are incompatible. Your heaphones have an analog connection on RCA Phono type connections. The type you usually get on the back of hifi equipment.
The pannasonics DO have a headphone socket, but it is the small 3.5mm type socket. a small round hole that looks slightly larger than a pin head. It normally has a small diagram of a pair of headphones above or below the socket to indicate what it is.
In order to connect your headphones to your set you will need a stereo,male 3.5mm jack to two RCA Phono jacks.
If your current lead on your headphones has "male" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold points sticking out.
If your current lead on your headphones has "female" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold surrounds with holes in.
With this in mind, if you have male ends you will require a stereo 3.5mm jack to stereo female Rca Phono vice versa so that they basically lock into eachother forming a "Constant chain".
I have tried to explain this as best I can, I hope you've managed to get the idea of what I'm saying.
You will either need this :
or this :
Sometimes the colours of connectors vary. Just remember that Red to Red (for right hand side) and White to White or Black To White or Black To Black (for left)
