Question about Samsung TSL2793HF 27" TV

Sound cuts out when I connect earphones

When I plug the dongle from wireless headphones from Radio Shack into the side-panel headphone jack, the main speakers cut out (I need both sources of sound, the headphone for me, the speakers for my wife).  Radio Shack says that this can be addressed by changing the onscreen settings of the television. The Samsung manual seems to address this but doesn't really; the problem remains as above. Anything I can do?

Re: Sound cuts out when I connect earphones

It is not unusual for this to happen in a regular T.V. set as this is a product of it's design. The solution is to short the internal mech, however this may lead to damages to the audio output of the set. Consult with the service manual first.

Ok so 1 of my kidos has the RCA 20F420T tv, and i guess there is no headphone jack hole, so i went and bought adapter that plugs into the av jacks, still doesnt work can you please help!!!

Without knowing the specifics on this adapter - I can provide only provide some clues as to how this works.

Basically, the A/V jacks on a TV has a "fixed" audio output level - this means that the sound levels on the A/V jacks is NOT controlled by the volume control of the TV itself. You should be able to set the TV volume to minimum and then use the adapter's volume control to make the earphone / headphone sound louder and softer. Your TV however, may have a setting in the menu that can change the audio from "fixed" to "variable". If set to "variable", when turning the volume down for the TV's built in speakers will also turn the volume down on the A/V jacks as well. You do not want this to work like that as the sound in the headphones and the TV speakers will be same - instead of the TV speakers being off and the headphones on.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks!

How to hook up headphones to a sharp 27ns100

It looks like your TV has stereo AUDIO OUT jacks on the rear panel (L and R) which you can use to connect headphones. Go to a local Radio Shack or other electronics retailer and ask for help with the required adapter cable and connectors. They should be able to direct you to the product(s) as Radio Shack has these simple adapters and they should cost very little. All you need is a simple RCA cable with the white and red plugs for the TV side and depending on your headphones, either a 3.5mm or larger connector for hookup on the headphone side. They also sell extension cables so you can move away from the TV more. Don't let them sell you anything fancy or expensive as this is really simple.

How to find JVC AV27320 headphone jack? I've plugged into the avs(red & white) in the front panel as well as the extra ones in the back. Altho - I CAN hear the sound thru the headphones, The external...

This model doesn't have a headphone jack. The only JVC TV in the series that does is the model AV-20D202. For the JVC AV-2732, use the RCA audio out jacks with an RCA to 3.5 mm adapter to connect to the headphones. The front audio jacks are audio in (for the audio from a video camera for example).

When you use any external speakers or headphones through the audio out jacks, make sure to turn off the TV speakers. Press Menu and navigate down to TV Speakers (up/down arrows). Then use the right/left arrows to select Off and then Exit the menu. Make sure you scroll the TV volume before doing this. Note: if your headphones do not have a volume control they are a bad choice for this type of audio output.

You can find the manual for the TV here: .

I wish that I had better news for you.

No sound


First you check the speaker of your Daewoo Tv. To check the whether the speaker is good or damaged, place your year very close to the speaker side of your TV, and switch the TV by its front panel power switch, not by the remote control. If you can hear a "Thumb" sound from the speaker, as the TV is switched on, the speaker is good and you have to to further. If not speaker has got damaged and have to be replaced.
If your TV is provided with an earphone or headphone socket at its fron panel, insert a earphone or headphone pin into it and listen whether there is sound coming from it or not. If ther comes the sound, it doesnot comes to the speaker, means that the headphone or earphone socket is faulty. Replacing it will solve the problem.
If there is AV OUT from your TV, connect it to an amplifier or so to get the sound. If there is sound and no output from speaker, means the Audio Output IC inside your TV is faulty.
Just locate the audio output Ic, and replace it with same type and number. Audio Output IC can be easly located ans speaker wire goes to that section, and follow the speaker wire. locate it. If you need any more assistance, feel free to contact me through Fixya. OK.

No sound

If picture is OK and there is no sound output from your tv, means either its speaker or the Sound output Ic is not working. The case of speaker fault can be easly detected without opening the TV. You just place your ear very near to the speaker side and switch on the TV by AC mains [not with remote control]. You may hear a "thumb" SOUND OR A "HUM" sound from it. If any one is there the internal speaker is working fine. The fault lies in audio output Ic stage. If there is no sound said above, speaker can be suspected. Befor confirming that the speaker is faulty, if your TV has an earphone or headphone jack in front, insert the earphone or headphone socket into it, and check whether there is any sound heard from it. If there is sound from headphone, means that the headphone socket is faulty, it does not bypass the sound to the speaker. When head phone is connected, the connection to the speaker will automatically cut of. When it is pulled out from the socket, the speaker connection will resume. If the changeover switch inside the earphone socket also show this kind of trouble. If the speaker inside is found faulty, unscrew it out of place after opening the TV, go for a same type and number, impedence and shape.
If there comes the above said "HUM" sound from the speaker, surely the Sound Output Ic is faulty. Replacing it will solve the probelm. Before replacing it, check it soldering points for any loose contact. It is best to resolder all suspected point is sound section before replacing the ic.
Note: In modern TVs there will be any trace of sound, without a video signal. Without video, sound is muted. ok.

Can you connect earphones to this TV? -GE25GT240 Serial #943516018

There is no front panel earphone jack for this TV. From the owners manual I can't find the rear view of this television. If there are connections on the back for AUDIO OUT there will be two connections for an RCA type connector. All you need to do is to get an adapter (from Radio Shack) and plug that into the two Audio Out connectors on the back of your television and plug your headphones into that adapter.

I recommend this one:

If you have a 1/4 headphone connector (the old type) you can convert the 1/8 to 1/4 inch with this one.

I would like to hook up wireless headphones to a 1999 Sylvania 26-inch tv. It does not have headphone jacks, so I have to use the RC plugs in back. How can I cut the sound to the television speakers while...

The RCA jacks (Red and White) usually have full-level output and are not affected by the volume control. (Without those you can buy an adaptor for a 1/8" stereo jack to RCA females and plug the RCA males there--that may be volume controlled or not or both.) The RCAs are meant for an audio system that would control the volume but should work fine with a headset that has its own control. -Ken

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.

TV has no sound

Just a thought...does the set have a headphone jack? When you plug in most headphone jacks it disables the internal speakers. If it does have a headphone jack trying plugging in some headphones to see if you have sound there. If you do, plug/unplug it a few times...worth a shot.
