I purchased the product over a year ago, now the sound only seems to come out of one speaker/headphone unless i wrap the wire around the mp3 player. I need to send it back, but I dont have the receipt or the box anymore!
Go to the manufacturers website and check if they have had similiar problems- also look to how long your warranty was - 1year or two or three. If it is a one year warranty you may be able to get them on their 'implied warranty', in that as a company they stand by their products - if not jump up and down and contact consumer affairs.

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.)
Unless *********** board was bought years and years and years, and even years ago, you should by default have at least three jacks. Headphones, or sound out; micorphone, and a line input or second out put. You can adjust your settings in the control panel under audio devices to have a least two (2) outputs, in which case you want to connect the green and black. You should have instructions that came with the system to show you guidelines for setting up the speakers, but you can then use your matrix feature to mimmick surround sound!
The fault is in the cable: you will have to dismantle the left speaker housing and start cutting from the cable until the break is removed then solder it back to the speaker - use an multimeter to check the continuity of the wires.
I have had this problem myself over the years with Sony sets. There will be a plug with wires that go to the speaker that is affected. It will be dry solder joints on the board where the speaker plug goes to. They need to be re-soldered and do this with BOTH speaker plugs as a precaution.
Also check the connections on the speakers themselves. Always remember if the sound is OK through headphones then it is something simple.
Of course. Just peal off the main isolation and connect wires according to color of their individual isolation. You can just twist them and wrap them with duct tape or solder them and wrap with duct tape.
My cat recently chewed trough 220 Volts stereo power cord (fortunately unplugged) and trough speakers cable too. They work perfectly again after quick fix while my room has become off-limit zone to my cat. ;-)
Better get your tomcat fixed or find him a girlfriend unless you'd like to risk him getting killed when he starts chewing some power cord.
It's less common for one of the speakers to go bad in a set of headphones. It's possible - but there are more common problems that will cause this. I assume you have tried the headphones on another device to rule our a problem with the device you are currently listening with and using the other device, you still only hear audio from the left speaker.
The wires in the cord that connect the plug to the headphones are very thin and are susceptible to breaking. The most commmon place for these wires to break is at the point where the cord is flexed or stressed the most. Those points are:
1. Right at the plug
2. Where the wire enters into the left and right speaker.
There are occasions where I have seen the wires become unsoldered from the speaker terminals within the headphones themself.
What You Can Do:
1. While listening with the headphones, try flexing the cord back & forth at the plug and where the wire goes into the right speaker. See if the audio will come back and cut out again.
2. What I have done is cut the cord about 3" back from the plug. Go to Radio Shack and purchase a new plug and install a new plug on the cord.
3. You can also take the headphones apart and cut a few inches off the cord where it connects to the right speaker and reconnect the new end of the wire to the right speaker. The goal is to cut away the bad part of the cord and re-attach the good part back.
4. You can try to replace the entire cord but I haven't been able to find replacement (THIN) cords too easily.
