Question about RCA Televison & Video

Open Question

I have an RCA colortrak plus tv and I do not see an audio jack port to plug in headphones in front. Can I use one of the jacks in back of the set? The tv is old but it does have the 1 yellow, 2 white and two red jacks in back of the set. Can I plug the adapter into one of those? I am running a PS2 on it and I want to use headphones. PS2 headphones won't work because of the simulation game I am playing (ACE COMBAT) so I will need headphones for the tv. I had another tv with a headphone jack in front but the screen was too small. I am just using this until I can afford to purchase a flat screen then I will not have this problem. Meanwhile, can you help? Thank you!

SOURCE: audio output jacks

If I remember this tv correctly, check under the audio setting in the menu, most tv's including this on have variable output for the audio o/p. meaning the the o/p vol. is adjusted as the tv speaker vol. changes. some tv's will put out a fixed audio o/p to the rca jacks, but will only do this when the speakers are shut off in the menu (not muted, but off). I have run into this problem many times & have yet to find a better solution to getting a steady sound sound out of the o/p jacks.

SOURCE: Low Volume from headphone jack...

I do not think that this TV does not have a separate circuitry with its volume control for the earphone. If your earphone is mono, are you using a plug that is mono to connect the speaker?
Try using AWG 20 if you could to see if that helps.
Good Luck.

SOURCE: headphone jack

Have a look for a hole around 1/8th inch round. This could be behind a pop out plastic panel which you need to poke for it to come open. Usually on the front of modern tvs but occasionally on the side - good luck

SOURCE: headphone jack does not work, audio still plays from speakers

sound like the hardware supporting your headphones may have disconnected from its solder.This could have happened from dropping the notebook with the headphones plugged in and landing badly, or a strong or constant tug on the input. Otherwise, it could be a software configuration like you've tried

Sylvania wireless headphones



Instructions
1
Set up the transmitter. Wireless headphones rely on a transmitter that sends audio via infrared or radio waves to your headset. Use the digital audio output (coaxial or optical), RCA outputs (red and white) or headphone jack on your TV to connect the transmitter. The connection will depend upon which outputs are available on your TV and/or the transmitter.
2
Use an RCA-to-headphone adapter. If you don't have a headphone jack on your TV and the transmitter includes only a headphone connection, connect an RCA-to-female headphone connector. This will allow you to plug the wireless transmitter into the female headphone end and then hook the RCA ends into your television's audio outputs. You may also need a 3.5 mm (mini jack)-to-1/4-inch adapter if the headphone plug on the transmitter doesn't match the television jack.

3
Set the transmitter on top of, or next to, the television. For infrared transmitters, you'll need a direct path between the headphones and the transmitter. Placing the transmitter on or near the TV will allow you to take advantage of the clear path you already have.
4
Plug in the transmitter and turn it on. Charge the headphones if necessary.
5
Turn on the headphones. Adjust the volume and settings and you're ready to watch TV.

NEED INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOOKING UP WIRELESS HEADPHONES FOR VIZIO TV


From the manual:

1. Plug the stereo audio cable into the headphone jack of your audio
source (e.g., stereo, TV, CD player, DVD, etc.). If your audio source
has two RCA output jacks instead of a headphone jack, use the
supplied Y cable to connect your headphones to the two (red and
white) RCA jacks.
2. Connect the other end of the stereo audio cable to the AUDIO IN
socket at the back of the recharging cradle/transmitter.
3. Connect the AC/DC main power adapter to the DC IN power
supply socket at the back of the recharging cradle/transmitter. Then,
connect the adapter to an electrical outlet.
Important: This power unit is intended to be correctly oriented in a
vertical or floor mount position.

How to find JVC AV27320 headphone jack? I've plugged into the avs(red & white) in the front panel as well as the extra ones in the back. Altho - I CAN hear the sound thru the headphones, The external...


This model doesn't have a headphone jack. The only JVC TV in the series that does is the model AV-20D202. For the JVC AV-2732, use the RCA audio out jacks with an RCA to 3.5 mm adapter to connect to the headphones. The front audio jacks are audio in (for the audio from a video camera for example).

When you use any external speakers or headphones through the audio out jacks, make sure to turn off the TV speakers. Press Menu and navigate down to TV Speakers (up/down arrows). Then use the right/left arrows to select Off and then Exit the menu. Make sure you scroll the TV volume before doing this. Note: if your headphones do not have a volume control they are a bad choice for this type of audio output.

You can find the manual for the TV here: http://books.jvc.com/booklist.asp?Model=AV-27230 .

I wish that I had better news for you.

How do I wire up my Logitech X540 Speaker system to my Lg tv?


Most TV's nowadays, have audio out RCA jacks that will allow you to send audio from the TV, to an alternate source. These speakers do come with an adapter that allows you to hook up RCA red and white audio cable, and plug them into the adapter, which goes from the RCA jack to a 1/8 in female headphone style jack. You would then need to get a 1/8 in audio cable that has two male ends, and plug that into the back of your sub woofer in the front speakers port. But this really isn't going to give you very good sound quality being it's not giving you true 5.1 surround sound, even with the matrix feature enabled!

Plug for pc speakers wire


To use the speakers on the TV when you connect to a PC, get a 3.5 mm M/M audio cable (it may be called a patch cable or audio aux cable) and connect it to the PC audio in port to the left of the composite A/V ports (that's the group with 3 RCA jacks yellow (video)/red(R audio)/white (L audio)). The other end goes into the computer's line out (speaker out) port - which is generally colored green. Otherwise your regular computer speakers will play the audio.

If you want the TV's audio to output to external speakers, use the headphone jack (sometimes labels Phones, again a 3.5 mm plug) or a set of speakers/receiver that takes an optical audio connection. The optical audio jack is between the two coax connectors. Please note using the headphone jack will force the internal speakers off.

I hope this helps.

If I hook up a set of headphones to the slot on the side of the TV the sound goes off and you can only hear sound through the headphones, no one else in the room can hear the TV. Is there a way to hook...


The headphone jack on the TV has switch built-in to kill the TV speakers when headphne jack is used, you need to use powered PC speakers with headphone jack and connect this PC speakers to the Audio line out of the TV set (RED and WHITE RCA audio line out). Basically the powered PC speakers are being used a headphone driver. Or you can get one of those wirless headphone system instead.

To play laptop thru samsung tv I am attempting to play laptop movie thru tv. I have tried the rca y cable with 3.5 mm plug from headphones of laptop to red and white audio in on the samsung tv., no sound....


So you are connecting the laptop to the TV using VGA port of the TV, right? To get sound in the PC input mode, you need to use the PC audio input jack (green jack, mini 3.5mm jack) not the RED and White RCA audio input, they are for Composite Video AV inputs. That is how I have my laptop and TV setup to watch Netflix.

I have new RCA model VHP141 Headphones but will not work with my new Vizio TV. Where do I plug them in the TV?


Visio might not have a headphone jacks at all! Look around your set and, probably you won't find jack marked as headphone. You might need to use wireless headphones, what have an rca plugs and connect them to audio monitor out on your tv set.
Good luck!
