    The Vizio sales rep told me I could connect wireless headphones to the GV42L, so of course I bought a wireless headset. However, I don't see a jack for the headset. Could someone resolve this problem?

go to your remote contol ( menu )
then you go to the option set up.
then you go to headphones and you can set the volume louder.
You will see that it works fine.

SOURCE: Connecting laptop audio to tv

i had the same issue with a thinkpad T61 which i was connecting using VGA and a audio jack going straqight from the headphone socket to the back of tv.
I had picture but no sound and i found that once connected the issue could be solved by rotating the projection setting on the laptop(Fn+F7). Basically switched back to laptop only display, then back to laptop and projector display again and teh sound just kicked in. 
i think it's related to the projector setting on the laptop rather than an issue with the tv.

SOURCE: How do I connect my Laptop computer to my LCD TV?

Every laptop has at least a VGA (computer video connection) and s-video cable port. A VGA cable is preferred if you want to be able to read text on your LCD TV. Check to make sure that your LCD TV has a VGA connector. It's a port that accepts a 15-pin connection so it's pretty easy to spot if it's there. It's just like a computer monitor cable if that helps. Should be able to find it at any local retail store that carries computers. VGA or RGB cable.

Salutations Derek23,

Unfortunately that is correct, most newer televisions do not come with "Audio Out" or headphone jacks. Its almost assumed that you would be connecting the television to a receiver or audio source of some type that would have these types of connections.

Sorry to break the bad news.

SOURCE: LG 42'' TV has no sound but great picture. How do I get the sound?

You shouldn't need anything plugged into the accessory jacks to get local sound from your set. Go through the main setup menu and check audio settings; they may be set to turn off the internal speakers to send the sound to a home theatre that you apparently don't have. Most sets have that as a selection and supply L-R audio for an external system and mute the internal speakers.
FYI: The three connectors you mention are coded as follows:
Red - right channel audio White - left channel audio Yellow - composite video (contains synchronization signals and video)
These may be input connectors (for external VCR/DVD decks) so check your owner's guide to verify.

Lg lcd tv 37lc2d no headphones socket - how do i connect headphones?


You can purchase a cable to connect to the Audio Out ports on the back of the TV. It will have 2 RCA connectors on one side that plugs into the TV and a 1/4" stereo jack on the other end that you will connect your headphones to. You could even pickup a pair of wireless headphones... they will have a volume control on them! I hope this helps.

The tv sensor is not working on my 42" lg lcd hdtv


Believe it or not...THIS WORKS!!!! 

 Look on the back of your set for an external remote jack. It should be the same size as a small headphone jack. If it has one, use a spare headphone plug or your headphones, and plug them in and out about 50 times. This will clean the tarnished contacts and make your remote sensor start working. Your remote sensor goes through a switch on this jack.

No, TV's rarely provide that anymore. They expect you to hook it up to a stereo and plug headphones in there. There are some nice wireless remote headphone systems that are self powered and can plug into the TV's audio out.
