Question about RCA WHP141 Consumer Headphones

1 Answer

No power. Headphone will work fine, then stop. Power light on transmitter is off. When I re-plug in the adapter or when I plug the power cable into the transmitter the power light flashes, but does not stay constant. Then the power come on and things are fine for a while, then power goes out again. I assume the problem is with the cheap power connector, but I guess it could also be with the adaptor. The adaptor does not appear to overheat, but it isn't warn either like other adaptors I have plugged in.

    It is also a wiring (physical) issue,no contact ,most likely between the soldered female part and the external plug, but it could be a part loose on the board.

What are connections and connectors for audio output to wireless headset


Hi Richard,

First, you'll need to determine which type of input(s) the wireless headset transmitter has. Most common is the 3.5mm stereo plug designed to slip into the headphone jack of a TV, MP3 player, cell phone, etc. Some transmitters have adapters in the box to allow connecting to the Left and Right channel RCA / phono style jacks found on other components such as CD, DVD, VCR, Stereo receivers / amplifiers, etc.

You'll need to find OUTPUTS of the CD and TV that match the plug on the wireless headset transmitter. If yours doesn't include adapters to go from say the RCA jacks mentioned above - to whatever connector that the transmitter input has - you'll need to go to your local Radio Shack store or similar store to see if they can provide an adapter that will allow you to connect.

Here are a couple plugs / adapters:

Above: A "3.5mm stereo patch cable". Your transmitter may have a cable with an end like this to plug into the TV's headphone jack.




25683604-gy4zxbmnj5ndu14q12lmwneo-2-1.jpg Above: A "3.5mm female stereo jack to RCA stereo male plug" adapter that would allow the top cable to connect to the Left and Right audio output jacks on a typical CD, DVD, etc. device.

These cables / adapters are typically $5 to $10 maximum.

I hope this helps and good luck!

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.
Read more : http://www.ehow.com/how_4883556_use-wireless-headphones-tv.html
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.

I have the speakers and power adapter but i can not find the transmitter....can i purchase the transmitter only..??


any transmitter will work by RCA..... The one for the WHP141 works just fine and that headphone set w/transmiter is about 19$ on Ebay as well as other places, be aware that the transmitter will not transmit UNTIL the sound source is hooked up and the sound is high enough to trigger the transmitter into working..... do not expect the green light to come on simply because it is plugged in, because it wont.....also if the sound is not high enough from the source the sound will cut in and out......notice also that the transmitter power supply is the 19 Volt one, and the tip is - and the out side ring is the + reversed of what many after market power supplys are.........the cool thing is the gain of a set of decent head phones as well as being able to use the speakers.....so many people fail to even READ the instructions and think that the units are defective because the green light does not stay on when pluged in......pays to read.....

How do i use my infared headphones and can i use them on my laptop


You should be able to use infrared headphones with your laptop. You don't give a brand or model, but they're all pretty much the same. The transmitter connects to an audio source (and to a power source as well, so you'll need an AC outlet nearby) with the appropriate cable, and you just put the headphone on and turn on the power. Some headphones take regular batteries, while others have a rechargeable battery like a cordless phone; those are recharged when you hang the headphones back on the transmitter.

The couple of infrared headphone systems I've used both had RCA input jacks. The headphone jack on a laptop takes a 1/8-inch mini-stereo plug, so you'll need an adapter with a regular stereo patch cord (RCA plugs at both ends) or a cable with the right plug on the computer end and RCA plugs at the other. Radio Shack sells both.

If you have questions about your headphones, you can usually find a downloadable manual at the manufacturer's website.

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.

Is it possible to connect my PC to my outdoor speakers? I want to play music outside using my PC. Is there a special connector that I need?


There are a couple of ways to go about this. The first would be to locate a similar computer speaker system set up outside - provide power and extend the cable to them - if not too far. When you want to listen to the outside speakers, plug the cable into the headphone jack of the computer. Adjust volume and enjoy.

Another way, would be to buy (or build from kit form) a low power FM transmitter. These devices are available in mono & stereo types and will play over all FM radios and stereos in a 50 to 300+ foot radius (depending on antenna, wall construction, transmitter power, etc.) when they are tuned to the transmitter frequency. These can be found for under $100 or built for as little as $30 or so. The upside to this method is that the music is available over ALL radios nearby.

Still another way is a wireless speaker system. This works like the FM transmitter, but will only work on these particular speakers. These will require power only - but some will work from internal batteries as well as AC power. The system includes a small transmitter, power cord & cable to plug into a headphone jack - all for use at the computer, and two speakers - each with a power cord as well and possibly a remote control.

Use of a spare pair of old stereo speakers will probably not work as the computer's sound card rarely develops more than a watt or two - and most home speakers require 10 or more watts to be driven properly.

AR Wirells Speak Transmitter Stopped Working


Hi there ,

Let me know if you did the steps below, then we can proceed form there:

Try unplugging the transmitter from power adapter, if it also has batteries remove them. Also unplug transmitter audio cable.

Then remove batteries/unplug adapters from speakers.

Wait few minutes and reconnect the system.

This is a proper hard reset, and can fix minor problems.

If when you re connect the transmitter does not glow, or you do not have sound on one or both channels then there is a fault.

Check the transmitter audio cable, a short in there can cause troubles.

Sentry HO900 headphones


The H0900 should come with a mini-plug adapter. The headphone jack in my TV was deeply inset, so I kinda reversed it. The adapter plugs into the transmitter, then the Red/White plugs, into that, then the long end of the cord into the TV.

Works fine for me. My problem will be posted seperately.
