Question about RCA WHP140 Consumer Headphones

1 Answer

Power goes off!

New set.
Hook it up, plug it in, worked well for 45 seconds. Power supply light goes off. No more sound completely dead, nothing works.
Unplug power supply, wait 90 seconds, plug it in, works for 45 seconds then goes off again. I even replaced the batteries in the head set!
I suspect some overload protection malfunction?

I have the same model as you.

Plug in the transmitting unit into a good working power outlet. Make sure you have the audio connected to a loud source. Turn on the source device producing the loud audio to be transmitted to your headphones. Now see if the transmitting unit's LED light is on. Check headphones for audio. (May have to tune in the headphones and adjust its volume as well).
I recommend that the source of your audio have its built-in speakers off, while still providing audio out to your transmitting unit, via an external audio output. Check your source manual or look for audio jacks on the front or back. There may be a setting to turn this on and for the main built-in speakers to be turned off as well.

If this does not work, unplug the transmitting unit, and then plug it back in again, after waiting for about 10 seconds - all while audio is being provided to the unit. It should come on.


Remember that if the audio to the transmitting unit is quiet OR off for about one minute, the transmitting unit will turn off and you will hear FM noise, loudly, on your headphones. This is due to the "lack of audio" timer built-in to the transmitting unit.

SOURCE: RCA Wireless headphone triggers off after 35 seconds of operation

I find that if the volume going in to the base isn't loud enough then the base auto turns off.  Turning up the volume going in to the base keeps it from turning off, but then the headset has to be turned pretty low not to get a major noise blasting.

Yes, in that case you have to replace a new power cord, or try to observe the power supply of your system unit, if the fan is working then your memory is the cause, and if the fan is not working your power cord is the main cause of it.

No power - have checked fuses, power leads and master switch


Well yes, there a problem in the power supply modual.
It does sound like a failing power supply , becuse of the
fact you don't get charge up spark from the plug , wich is normal
affter it's been off /unpluged for 20 min or so .

check the resistance of the plug coming from the set with a volt meter if you have 10 meg ohms or higher,
it's an open circuit and more than likely a 1.50 fuse in the power
supply. If the fuse blows instantly then it's a shorted output transistor or rectifier diode in the switching power supply.


Be a shame to pay 300.00 plus for a stupid fuse.

hope that helps a little . if you have any questions just comment
an i'll respond

Lights come on but no fans or powerup


Hello,

Please follow the steps below.

1. Please removed the battery and unplugged the power supply.
2. Held down the power button for 45 seconds.
3. After 45 seconds reinstalled the battery and the power supply and pushed the power button and if it works then you don't need to replace your motherboard.
4. Else try it couple of times or up to five times before it worked if worst comes to worst.

Thanks

Does not power up.


Remove the battery and try to turn on the laptop without the cord plugged in to allow the device to completely discharge. Put the battery back in and hold the power button in for 45 seconds, the lights should flash and then turn the laptop on normally.

This always works for my laptop.

AKAI 32" LCD HDTV WILL NOT TURN ON


The only solution at this point would be to get the power supply repair since new boards are not longer being manufactured. In about 95% of the time if the LCD doesn't power up or turns OFF by itself or need to be unplug for some time to make work again; those are the symptoms of a dying or defective power supply.
I service these power supplies, for more info write to jah2mil@hotmail.com
