Pioneer VSX-456 headphone jack problem

I bought a pair of wireless headphones for the purpose of late-night audio without disturbing the rest of the house. Because I have multiple devices feeding into my Pioneer vsx-456, I chose to use the wireless headphones with the receiver 1/4" headphone jack. That way, whatever input, (or device) I'm currently using, the headphone jack should mute the other speakers and play the sound. The headphones play the sound just fine... the problem is that it's not muting the rest of the speakers. Isn't the headphone jack supposed to mute the other speakers??? Is there a setting with this receiver that I'm missing? This is an old receiver, (but still works great) that is pro logic surround, (not true 5 channel, but emulated). Why isn't the headphone jack muting the other speakers???? Any help is appreciated, and thanks!

No the headphone jack doesn't disable the speakers. There are two switches in the lower middle of the receiver that are labeled speaker A and B. Pushing one of these should disconnect the speakers from the receiver.

    Thanks Jim. I had already turned off buttons for speakers A and B. But the pro logic was still engaged and playing through the main speakers even with no A or B speakers. But after further attempts, I tried pushing the "SFC" button and that did the trick! :) Apparently on this receiver, SFC mode, and A/B speakers off, will then play only through headphone jack. Your solution however, encouraged me to keep experimenting with the settings, which finally works as desired. Thanks for your help. :)

How do i put my pioneer receiver to my cable tv,dvd. vsx-917-v-k


For this purpose I am using headphone output of the TV set. I connect the headphone output to the AUXiliary input of the receiver. All you need is an interconnection cable, one end with 3,5 mm stereo male earphone jack, the other end with a pair of RCA jacks. This output of TV provides an additional output signal to your receiver but volume control behaviour (independent volume control for earphone output etc.) changes for different brands of TV sets.

Headphones are a convenient way to experience audio-rich entertainment on your own terms. Headphones allow you to customize your listening level without disturbing other people in your general vicinity. Headphone cables can be a hassle, however, so many new headphone models feature a wireless connection. PCs tend to be wire jungles, so eliminating one wire from a potentially jumbled mess can be an intriguing feature of wireless headphones. Connecting wireless headphones to your PC allows you to take advantage of the benefits of listening to your movies, music or games through headphones without the struggle of the headphone cable.

Charge up or place batteries in your headphones and transmitter. Wireless headphones require power to function. Many wireless headphones come with a charger base. You need to charge your headphones before you attempt to connect them to your PC. Some wireless headphone models require batteries, which you must install before you connect the headphones to the PC. Connect the transmitter to your PC. The transmitter may connect via the PC's headphone jack or USB port. If the transmitter connects to the headphone jack, plug it in and check your headphone's user guide to verify how to synchronize the headphones to the transmitter. If the transmitter connects via USB, you will likely need to install software to use your wireless headphones. If your wireless headphones are Bluetooth-compatible, continue to the next step. Pair your headphones via Bluetooth to your PC. If your PC is not Bluetooth-equipped, you will need to install a Bluetooth USB dongle. Turn on your headphones and open the Bluetooth software on your PC. Scan for Bluetooth devices from your PC. Your headphones should appear. Select the headphones and follow any further instructions to complete the pairing process. Test the headphones. Pick out a song or a video and play it on your PC. Connect your wireless headphones and verify that you can hear the audio. Find the volume controls on your headphones and adjust them to make sure the volume changes correctly. If your headphones are not functioning properly, verify that the headphones are turned on. If the headphones are on and you do not hear anything, verify that your transmitter is functioning properly and that you have your volume turned up on your PC. Recharge your headphones when you are finished using them. To ensure that the headphones are ready anytime you need them, you must always place them on the charging base when you are finished using them. If the headphones are battery-powered, be sure that you always have spare batteries on hand. Hope this helps.

I have a pioneer VSX 920 receiver that thinks i have headphones pluged in. I have no sound from the speakers and when trying to go in speaker related settings it displays: PHONESIN on the receiver. If I...


I think I just fixed a unit with the same problem. I opened the cover and found where the wire from the headphone jack plugs into a board just beside the power supply transformer. When removed, the unit appeared to select speakers as the output. Since the headphones are never used by the owner, I simply left the headphone cable unplugged. Unfortunately, I didn't have speakers to test it with but the unit appeared to be working correctly.

When i plug in the head phones into my pioneer dsx-d557 receiver the speakers stay on. The headphone jack works but whats the point if the speakers still work.


It may seeem counter-intuitve but there are those who would love to have that ability.

You can always turn the speakers off while you're in the vicinity of the front panel plugging in the headphones.

This TV does not have a headphone socket, which is unusual. There are audio outputs (RCA phono) which may be used with an amplifier or tape deck to drive the headphones.
