Unfortunately, this product has a reputation for unreliable operation. Many Amazon users report that they can't get it to work with their TVs. To isolate the problem, try plugging a good set of wired headphones into your television; if you hear nothing, then the TV is at fault. Otherwise, try plugging a different, known-good adapter cable into the TV. If you still don't get sound, then the Genica is broken.

I can't get sound through my headphones on my Bravia kdl-52xbr5 tv. First time I have tried to hook up the headphones which are sharper image wireless


I take it the headphones are charged up and known to be in good working order? Are you using the 3.5mm headphone jack on the side of the TV or the white and red RCA jacks labeled AUDIO OUT (VAR/FIX)? If using the headphone jack the TV should shut off the internal speakers and output to the headphones. If using the mentioned RCA jacks you need to go into the audio options settings and set to Audio System. Also under audio settings, Audio Out, you can pick Fixed or Variable. If you opt for Fixed you will use the headphones to adjust the volume. If you opt for Variable you can control the headphone volume and muting using your TV remote control. Just make sure you have the headphone volume turned up adequately.

How can iI connect the earphone on my tv


Through the 3.5mm headphone jack from your headphones, its a pretty small hole usually to the front of the tv set, being so small you may have to look for it. If it is wireless you will need to connect the main headphone system to the back of your TV (audio in jack) then ensure system is powered on and headphones are charged.

Instructions
1
Set up the transmitter. Wireless headphones rely on a transmitter that sends audio via infrared or radio waves to your headset. Use the digital audio output (coaxial or optical), RCA outputs (red and white) or headphone jack on your TV to connect the transmitter. The connection will depend upon which outputs are available on your TV and/or the transmitter.
2
Use an RCA-to-headphone adapter. If you don't have a headphone jack on your TV and the transmitter includes only a headphone connection, connect an RCA-to-female headphone connector. This will allow you to plug the wireless transmitter into the female headphone end and then hook the RCA ends into your television's audio outputs. You may also need a 3.5 mm (mini jack)-to-1/4-inch adapter if the headphone plug on the transmitter doesn't match the television jack.

3
Set the transmitter on top of, or next to, the television. For infrared transmitters, you'll need a direct path between the headphones and the transmitter. Placing the transmitter on or near the TV will allow you to take advantage of the clear path you already have.
4
Plug in the transmitter and turn it on. Charge the headphones if necessary.
5
Turn on the headphones. Adjust the volume and settings and you're ready to watch TV.

I have a set of T 912 wireless headphones. I am unable to set them up on the TV. I am using the white and red cables from the base station to the TV audio red and white. Do you have any instructions on...


The audio jacks on the TV are most likely inputs, not outputs. They're meant to take the audio signal from something like a DVD player, along with the video input on another jack, so you can play it through the TV. There isn't an audio signal coming out from those jacks, and if you connect your headphone transmitter to them all you'll get is silence. Almost all sets now have at least one set of AV inputs, but most don't give you outputs. The manufacturers figure the TV is just a display device, and not a signal source.

Unfortunately, there isn't any easy way to connect your wireless headphones if the TV doesn't have audio output jacks or a headphone connector. If you're comfortable with soldering and willing to do some modification to your TV, it's possible to add a headphone jack. Most people don't want to start tinkering with their sets, though.

If you're using your TV on a cable system without a converter box and the cable hooks right to the set, you're out of luck unless you're willing to add a headphone jack as I mentioned before. But if you have a cable converter box, or you're using a satellite receiver or other set-top box, you can use your headphones with those. These devices typically have direct audio and video outputs available on the rear panel, and you can use that audio output to feed the headphone transmitter.

What most people do these days is use a home theater receiver along with the TV. All sources (the cable box, DVD player, video game console, audio CD player, etc.) connect to the receiver, and the receiver's audio and video outputs go to the corresponding input jacks on the TV. This way, the TV is just the end of the line. The receiver also would provide an output for the wireless headphone transmitter. This system offers some advantages. You'll be able to connect the proper speakers to enjoy surround sound when not using headphones. And you'll be able to use your wireless headphones with the tuner and audio sources like music CDs when not watching TV.

Where do I plug my headphones into a Sony DAV-FX900KW home theatre system? I'm playing X-Box 360 (on TV/VCR1) but can't get any sound off my Philips wireless headphones. Appreciate any help


There is a headphone jack on the Sony's front panel, on the right near the bottom edge. Connect the sender part of your wireless headphones to that jack. You may need some form of adapter depending on the sender's input connectors. If the wireless headphone system is working properly, this will give you sound.

How do i set up the Technika TA-709 Wireless Headphones to my tv. Have lost the manual and am not getting any sound only static on all 3 channel selections.


You should have all the necessary cables to do this with the package you bought, the wire which has a headphone style plug on each end should be plugged into the headphone jack on your tv.

If they dont work then there are two further things that could be at fault:

A: The headphone audio volume controls and the actual speaker volume controls on tvs are totally different and if the actual headphone volume is turned down then you will get an interference type noise thru your headphones as no sound is being detected by the reciever and therefore they go into kind of a standby mode. !!!!!!!!!!Try looking in your TV settings menu to make sure your headphone volume is turned up!!!!

B: being an owner of a pair of these headphones I know how audio the cable can easily turn faulty from prolonged use us. The wires can easily break inside but look fine from the outside so get a new one. Headphone jack to Headphone jack cable.

I use these along with my xbox 360 wireless earpiece (fits nicely under the headphones) and I think they're far superior to the Turtle beach headphones +++ My setup is 100% wireless which also makes it better than any turtle beach setup on the market.

Need help with HO 800sentry dynamic wireless headphone?


You need to plug in the RCA plugs (red and white) to your cable receiver box and NOT the TV outlet.
If you have satelite box, it's the same thing. It has two sets of audio-out and one of them goes to your TV and the other set may be free.
If not, goto Radio Shack and get a SPLITTER so you can plug in the headphone set.

However, these headphones... I have one, may not be all that good quality and reliable.
