Question about Sony KDF-E50A12U 50" LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Audio out level low

I would like to use my wireless headphones, but they will not work satisfactorly with this TV. Ok on other TV. Audio level, is very low on wired headphone socket and also very low on Audio out phono socket. Audio via speakers and external amp via scart leads all ok. unfortunately amp does not have audio out (sony make).The audio that is available at the phono sockets into the wireless transmitter, is so low that by the time I move to my chair it is not workable. Is there a trimpot adjustment or a hidden menu adjustment for this? I have been into the hidden menu before to sort out a ghosting problem. I have looked and searched the various forums, to no avail. Can you please help. Rick..

Is there a "audio out fixed/variable" in sound menu? If there is, this would output 'line level audio' vs. variable level by TV volume control.

No audio from TV through Wireless Headphone


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 bought wireless headphones, how do i connect them to the TV wirelessly


Normally the wireless headphones have a transmitter that send audio via wireless to the wireless headphones.
The transmitter needs to be plugged into the headphone outlet on the TV. This will switch off the speakers on the TV and sends the audio to the wireless headphones.

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!

I connect my Beyerdynamic DT131 wired headphone to my Sony Bravia TV through the cable box, audio volume is extremely low and the headphone's volume control had no effect on the volume. I tried connecting...


Hi,

The audiolevel is much to low for a headphone.
You really need to use a headphoneoutput ( if its there) or a headphoneamplifier.
You tried to connect your headphone on line-level outputs.

Can't connect wireless stereo to sylvania 6620LF4


you can hook this particular unit up to your stereo reciever if available. if i am not mistaken the original design purpose of these headphones were to be powered through a stereo reciever, at least it is a sure fire way of keeping your tv's sound in tact and using the headphones when needed. most receivers have a speaker a and speaker b configuration if you attach the lead from the headphone unit to the opposing speaker input then you can have the functions you desire and the performance you have indicated. hopes this fixya.
Best regards

Sennheiser Wireless Headphone Stops transmitting signal


I had the same problem when I plugged it into a new HDTV. The problem was that the sound on the TV was set too low. The transmitter has a feature that automatically turns off when the signal is off or too low. Try turning up the TV volume to a high/higher level and it should solve your problem. Using the headphone jack with the white input allows you to use the headphones while bypassing the TV speakers.

Using headphones with Logitech X-230 speakers


I really don't know, because some of the newer gadgets come with fixed volume control due to law suits, ect. Try to see if you can bring you TV menu up and see what the sound setting is.
