I have the jacks plugged into the audio out L &R of out Sony Flatscreen TV. The yellow input light stays steadily on, and the LED transmit is green. I have tried switching channels, rebooting and varying the sound source (directly through tv, through cable box), yet no sound. Any suggestions?

Re: headsets receive no sound
If you have the headphones plugged directly into the audio out, then thats the problem. the audio only supplies a low volume, pre-amplifier output and this needs to be put through an amp of somekind to get a decent volume. Look for a headphone socket on the tv, usually near the s-video plug and coloured green.

are you sure what your plugging them into on the TV is an output? most of the red white yellow jacks on TV's are inputs not outputs. also on same thing on the receiver make sure its an input not output
No no no! # 1. You need to connect all your components to your TV via an HDMI cable. For true HD and digital sound this is needed. Your TV (if its an HD TV) should have 3 or 4 HDMI inputs. So your Xbox/PS3 should be connected via HDMI cable. Your HD sat or cable box should also be connected with an HDMI cable. Same for your Blu Ray player.
#2. Now that your components are connect in a way which will enable you to see their media in either 720p, 1080i or 1080p your ready to get the Digital sound to your speakers. On the back of your TV you should (again on most all HD tv's) have a digital audio (optical) out. You need to purchase a digital (optical) audio cable and plug one end into your tv's digital audio out jack. Then plug the other end into your audio receivers digital audio in jack. You may have to go into your receivers menu to select or enable the digital/optical input. Then you should be rocking and rolling with true digital DTS, Pro Logic, Pro Logic 2 in either 5.1 or 7.1...
Think of your TV as the hub. Connect all the components with HDMI cables. And then your TV to your receiver with a digital/optical cable. It's that simple.
Never never use the red and white cables for audio. They were designed for 2 channel stereo sound. They won't deliver 5.1 or 7.1 digital sound.
Also... Don't ever hook up any component using the old "yellow" video cable if you want picture quality better than 480i resolution. They won't do HD period.
Here is a list of the popular video cables and they highest resolution.
Yellow video cables - 480i resolution
S video (super video) cable - 480p
Component video cables (red/blue/green) - up to 720p
HIgh definition multimedia interface HDMI - up to 1080p (full HD) and digital sound.
Hi, you have not stated whether you want to hear the sound on TV or Stereo Receiver.. Here are 2 possible solution for both alternative.. 1. thru TV Your VCR has either 2x Audio (red and whitw ) and 1x Video output (yellow) RCA jacks or a SCART jack on the back side.. you need to connect all 3xRCA jacks to your TV's respective input.(or SCART ) than you will manage to see both video and hear the sound by selecting the VIDEO input on the TV . 2.thru RECEIVER .** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks of your VCR ** to "AUX input "
or "DVD " OR "Any input" of your receiver ( except Phone ) ** than just switch to
respective mode on RECEIVER corresponding your RCA connection... There you go..VCR sound on the Receiver.. *** pls remember you can connect VCR to either TV or Receiver to listen audio ,not both..the yellow RCA video output connection always goes to TV..
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know. Take care and please Remember to rate/vote for us to continue for Helping out the Community :)
are you just trying to get the sound? Use a pair of audio in jacks like av5. (usually red and white inserts in jack and the color of the plug ends) if you have videoswitching and have hooked up a video out to your TV then you could also use a composite video connection (usually yellow insert in jack and yellow plug on wire) to send the picture to the TV. A higher signal source would be component (red,green & blue) or HDMI if your reciever has that level of signal swithing.(HDMI is audio and video in 1 cable)
Take the adapter cable from the Wii that plugs into the back of the Wii and converts the output(audio/video) into RCA style pin plugs, you will have: RED=right channel audio, plug it into any of the red audio INPUT on your Onkyo, then you will have WHITE=left channel audio, plug it into the other white INPUT jack next to the red plug on the Onkyo, then you will have YELLOW= video(picture) that will go directly to the yellow video INPUT on the back or side INPUTS of your TV.
Then when you want to play the Wii, set the input mode on the Onkyo to the inputs that you connected the red and white plugs into, then change the input on your TV to which ever the input is labeled on your TV in which you plugged the yellow plug into, you now will have sound comming from your Onkyo and the Wii up on the TV screen ready to play. Good luck!
Connect the Wii to your television. Then connect the variable audio output from the TV to the audio in on the monitor section of the receiver. Then use the TV/SAT input selection on the receiver and dolby prologic 2 as your sound mode.
Connect cables from your flatscreen TV (or monitor?) to the receiver's audio input jacks. These could be two RCA, white and red, or Digital (one single RCA cable), or optical, if both the flatscreen and the receiver have such connector. Make sure you select the correct audio input on the receiver to amplfy the sound from the game/movie/etc.
If successful, try muting the TV's audio, to prevent the sound from creating a hollow (echo) effect.
Depending on if your surround system has a hdmi input or not. if it does you can connect the blu-ray player to it. If it doesn't have an hdmi input you will have to run the hdmi cable from the blu-ray to the tv then run a set of rca cables (red and white plugs) from the tv audio out to the surround systems' audio input jacks to get sound through the surround system. Most surround systems don't have an auxiliary input for another video device.
A modulator is designed for the reverse of what you are trying to use it for.
It is meant to be a local TV transmitter i.e. video and audio source INPUT for the TV.
It converts A/V to a UHF radio signal that the TV can receive.
If the TV has no audio OUTPUTS or headphone jack then headphones cannot be used with this TV.
As for the new problem with the TV, I'd like to think this is co-incidental and not your fault.
The fantastic thing to do would be to go and buy the lady an LCD TV of a the biggest size you can afford. Most have a headphone socket.
