Hi.. You need to check whether the speakers are configured. Go to Control Panel, then to Sounds. Please check all the tabs available and check if your speakers are configured. If not you can use the Configure button to do the settings. ( Well! this is for Windows Vista)..

I hope this helps.. Vote me!! Thanks - billa

How can I get headphones to work with my Symphonic WF203 TV?


This set doesn't have a headphone jack, nor does it have RCA audio output jacks. Without one or the other, you're out of luck connecting headphones to this TV.

I remember a product some years ago that allowed adding headphones using a small microphone placed in front of the speaker. This was hooked to a little amplifier that ran the headphones so the volume could be independently controlled. It was marketed as a way to let "hearing-impaired" family members listen to TV shows without needing to make it uncomfortably loud for others. I haven't looked, but something similar might still be available. It's cumbersome, though, and needs power, plus maybe being costly if you find one.

It's possible to add a headphone jack, but you need to know how to do electronic soldering. Find a spot on the case where you can make a hole and mount a headphone jack, then wire it to the speakers. If you want the headphones to cut off the speakers when plugged in, you need a switching jack, and the speaker wires need to be cut and connected to the correct terminals. The switch built into the jack then disconnects the speakers when the headphone plug is in. If you don't need to turn off the speakers it's a little easier. You just need to wire from the jack to the speaker terminals. I've added jacks on quite a few sets. If you don't feel up to it and don't know anyone who is, you can see if a TV shop (if there are any left in your area!) would do it. (The shop I used to work for charged about $20, including the jack, but that was over 10 years ago now.)

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

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!

Heaphones volume through speakers


Unfortunately, the speakers are just passing through the sound and will not let you control the sound that it passes.

There are headphones, even inexpensive ones, that have volume control built in.

Please let me know if this answers your question. Thank you.

Laptop speakers problem


There are 2 volume control buttons on the laptop. 1 turns it up 1 turns it down. Try turning the volume up. It may be up high enough for you to hear with headphones but now loud enough to be heard through the speakers.

Can't set up speakers to work with the computer


Hi

Speakers are usually very simple to set up. If they are standard speakers then all you should need to do is plug them in at the mains, and then plug them into the correct port on the back of your computer. There are three holes the same size for speakers/headphones, microphone and possibly video. I'd suggest putting some music on (use windows media player or go to playlist.com) then plugging the speaker cable into each hole in turn - one of them should work. Make sure that the speakers are turned on and that the volume is turned up. Also if you go to Start>>>All Programs>>>Accessories>>>Entertainment>>>Volume Control and make sure that the volume there is set to at least halfway for each and that the mute box is not checked for any.

If this does not work then there may be a problem with your soudcard or with the speakers themselves. Try using headphones and if this works then you know that there's a problem with the speakers.

Hope this helps!

Why our head phones on Computer are not working


Is there a switch to turn on the headphone port? Is there a control on the headphones to adjust the volume (on a volume level on the side of the laptop)? Also, when the headphones are plugged into the laptop, go into your sound settings and turn up the master volume (and wave volume if it is low.. If that works, make sure to turn it back down when disconnecting the headphones).

Also, do the headphones work in another device (stereo, etc..)?

Headphone volume?


Unfortunately, I believe this is by design. The knob does not control the volume of the headphone jack on those speakers. The best you can do is set the volume control in Windows so that the headphone volume is acceptable and turn the knob up higher for speaker listening.

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.
