Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

LCD TV sound

I have a servere hearing problem and so I listen to my TV through a set of wireless headphones.
This has worked fine for several years with my old television but I recently bought a new one from Tesco's and found that i had a problem.
When listening to a television programme the sound is fine, but when I play a film on the DVD player the picture shows on the screen and the soundtrack comes out of the television speakers, but the signal that comes from the two phono out sockets on the back of the television (to which my headphones are connected) is the soundtrack from last TV channel I was watching.
The head phone socket on the back of the television is too weak a signal to power the head phone transmitter.
I thought at first there must be an internal fault with the set so I exchanged it for another one but experienced the same problem.
Believing this to be the fault of the design I then went to, Comet with the intention of buying another set, there to salesman explained to me that the problem was due to the television not being set up correctly and that there is a menu where the correct AV imput needs to be selected.
Despite this they were unable to demonstrate to me how to do this after 40 minutes of playing around with the remote control.
Needless to say Tesco's has no technical helpline worthy of the name.
Any assistance would be greatly valued. Thank you, Richard

What wireless headphones are compatible with this TV?

any if not all, depends how much you want to pay. honestly, i'm not looking at the specs of your tv, but requirements: headphone out, or other audio out. the transmitter of the wireless headphones must match to one of those outputs. an adapter plug (image attached) is needed if transmitter can not be plugged directly into the headphone jack, the other end should match the transmitter plug.

Loss of sound is often a SCART connection problem. Check that the SCARTS are pushed in securely. Or if the SCART is old, it may be faulty. Try a newer one, or one that you know is definitely ok.

What a con. There was no mention of paying for this advice when posting the problem. I'd rather pay a TV shop to look at the problem. Thanks for nothing.
