Question about RCA WHP140 Consumer Headphones
Hook it up, plug it in, worked well for 45 seconds. Power supply light goes off. No more sound completely dead, nothing works.
Unplug power supply, wait 90 seconds, plug it in, works for 45 seconds then goes off again.
I suspect some overload protection malfunction?
Returned to store item was replaced with a new one which worked only for a week, same problem.
Ya the volume of your source is your issue.
if it is too low, the unit cuts out after 45 seconds or so...
crank up the volume and turn it down on your headset

I find that if the volume going in to the base isn't loud enough then the base auto turns off. Turning up the volume going in to the base keeps it from turning off, but then the headset has to be turned pretty low not to get a major noise blasting.

I have two transmitting units and 3 headphones. They do exactly the same thing as everyone is talking about. Here is why... The transmitting units have an automatic shutoff when there is no sound coming in OR sound that is too quiet. The timer shuts off the unit after about 1 minute of quiet or no sound.
I recommend you set the audio coming in near maximum - if your TV or audio source can turn off the main or built-in speakers and has an output to an external audio only function. My TV has a special setting to turn off the TV speakers and to switch to an external audio out setting. The volume still works the same and I keep it near maximum. Maximum will work too.
If you are watching a DVD and you pause it for a minute.... The transmitting unit will shut off and your headphones will give you loud FM noise - as if an FM radio station went off the air. This will scare you if your headphones are loud.
I am looking into modifying the transmitting unit to NOT use the "lack of audio" timer, if anyone has any info or a "how-to" for this.
