Re: tv sound

Read the manual for your TV or just stumble around in the TV's menu until you find audio preference options that will allow you to couple or uncouple your headphone-out-jack audio volume from the speakers. Good Luck.

Can I connect to Vizio TV with blue tooth

If your ear buds have been connected to any device before your TV then it won't work. If you want to connect it to your TV you turn on your headphones, hold the call button for 3 seconds, and you will see ur light flash and connect it to your TV. If this didn't help then go to the manual and check how to connect your headphones to your TV.

Connect headphones to tv

It sounds like you have wireless headphones so maybe its not tv maybe more like transmitter signal between headphones and reciever so hopefully you have a way to test siganal. However the default headphone jack on TV should work fine unless turned off in audio settings in TV. Hope some of this helps you.

Bought a new 40" Philips HD TV to replace the 16

Maybe the manual that came with the TV would shed some light on that.

Sound quality/ connection to tv/ audio problems

The sound quality from an HDtv could very well be better than from a lesser-quality TV. The sound from the headphones can only be as good as the signal that feeds it.

Audio from tv is not restored by turning off power on headphones

It sounds as if you are plugging the base into a standard headphone jack located on the Television set.

RCA Headphone jacks (incl mini) automatically stop the sound output to the main speakers on almost every set I have seen.. or home stereo.. etc etc

In other words you can take a standard RCA jack.. with nothing connected to it.. plug it in while the music or sound is coming out the main speaker.. and it will cut off the output to those speakers..

If you set has audio outputs on the back.. preferably Fixed Audio Out .. you will need to connect your base unit to those.. turn your set volume to 0 and adjust the headset volume using the control on the right ear-cup.

If you have variable audio out.. you will need to go into your TV sets setup menu.. turn off the speaker.. and turn up the set until you achieve a signal and decent volume through the headset.

If you are missing these connections.. your current “work around” is your only solution.

Best of luck
