If you have connected your headphones directly to a headphone jack on your TV, it should work - check whether there is a separate headphone volume control.

If you have connected your headphones to the red/white "variable output" or "Line out" jacks on the back of your TV, these do not provide a headphone-level signal.

Please provide more detail on exactly how your headphones are connected to your TV, what make/model TV you have, and the connections between the two.

I have a Denon 1513 that was working fine last night for the game. Got up today to watch redzone turn on clb/sat and no sound. Tuner works but no sound from tv. Unpluged optic wire from both. Help


Try plugging in and unplugging headphone to the headphone jack. This model has an intermittent problem with the headphone jack that makes the receiver think there are headphones plugged in even when there isn't. Inserting and removing a plug sometimes clears this.

I GET GOOD RECEPETION BUT WHEN I CLICK THE TV TO STOP SOUND IT ALSO STOPS SOUND TO MY EAR PHONES WHAT IS WRONG


From the initial details of your problem it is unclear what equipment you have connected and what you are trying to listen to with your headphones.

Please describe exactly what piece of equipment your headphones are plugged in to. If it is a TV or a stereo system, please provide the model number for it.

If you are using wireless headphones plugged directly into your TV, please provide the model number of the headphone and for the TV and whether you are plugged into the EARPHONE jack, or the LEFT and RIGHT AUDIO OUT jacks.

If you are trying to listen to your TV audio through a home stereo amplifier, then please describe what type of cables you are using to connect the TV or set top box to the stereo (HDMI, RCA stereo, etc).

When you say that you 'CLICK TV TO STOP SOUND', do you mean that you are pushing the MUTE button on your TV's remote control?

Normally, pushing the TV's MUTE button will turn off the sound for both the TV's speakers and for the headphone output.

It is usually possible to shut off just the TV's speakers and leave the headphone volume active but in most cases this must be done through the TV's AUDIO OPTIONS MENU. For most TV's there is usually an option there to TURN TV SPEAKERS OFF.

Please comment back here to this page and provide as many additional details about your current setup and how you normally use your heaphones and I will respond as soon as I see it with any additional assistance necessary.

Thank you and take care.

Joe.

I have a set of T 912 wireless headphones. I am unable to set them up on the TV. I am using the white and red cables from the base station to the TV audio red and white. Do you have any instructions on...


The audio jacks on the TV are most likely inputs, not outputs. They're meant to take the audio signal from something like a DVD player, along with the video input on another jack, so you can play it through the TV. There isn't an audio signal coming out from those jacks, and if you connect your headphone transmitter to them all you'll get is silence. Almost all sets now have at least one set of AV inputs, but most don't give you outputs. The manufacturers figure the TV is just a display device, and not a signal source.

Unfortunately, there isn't any easy way to connect your wireless headphones if the TV doesn't have audio output jacks or a headphone connector. If you're comfortable with soldering and willing to do some modification to your TV, it's possible to add a headphone jack. Most people don't want to start tinkering with their sets, though.

If you're using your TV on a cable system without a converter box and the cable hooks right to the set, you're out of luck unless you're willing to add a headphone jack as I mentioned before. But if you have a cable converter box, or you're using a satellite receiver or other set-top box, you can use your headphones with those. These devices typically have direct audio and video outputs available on the rear panel, and you can use that audio output to feed the headphone transmitter.

What most people do these days is use a home theater receiver along with the TV. All sources (the cable box, DVD player, video game console, audio CD player, etc.) connect to the receiver, and the receiver's audio and video outputs go to the corresponding input jacks on the TV. This way, the TV is just the end of the line. The receiver also would provide an output for the wireless headphone transmitter. This system offers some advantages. You'll be able to connect the proper speakers to enjoy surround sound when not using headphones. And you'll be able to use your wireless headphones with the tuner and audio sources like music CDs when not watching TV.

I just received for my birthday, a RCA 900 MHz headphones. Followed the instructions but cannot get it to work. I tried to install it on a Hitasha TV. Can you help me?


Hi,
First you need to make a test to adjust your headphones wireless system..
.pls follow the step below:
  • "Connect the RCAheadphone base" TO " headphones output of TV" with 3.5mm stereo headphone jack cable (than Tv should mute ) RCA pilot lamp should flicker in parallel to voice coming from TV
  • RCA headphone should have 2 different rotary adjustment on it..one "Volume" and the second "Frequency" adjustment
  • while TV talking , adjust slowly the "frequency rotary dial" to catch the headphone transmitter coming from RCA headphone base,when you catch it you will hear the voice of TV,(sometimes fine adjustment makes it better ) than adjust volume properly..
  • .After this pls do not touch Frequency dial any more..Just Turn it on ,and Volume adjustment ..Thats it..
  • After completion of this test ,I recommend you to switch / use "RCA Audio output plugs-white/Red cable " on the back of TV instead of TV's headphone output ,since it mutes the whole sound..RCA output plugs work independently from the TV's master volume control..
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

Randy - I don't know what TV you have but in general media devices turn the internal speakers off when you plug anything into the headphone jacks. If your TV does you can probably do the following for probably around $20 (USD)


If you have a relatively new TV you could get a pair of inexpensive self powered computer speakers and a simple 3.5 mm to RCA stereo adapter. Then plug a standard red-white RCA stereo cable into the red-white stereo output jacks on the TV and the other end into the 3.5mm adapter and a 3.5" stereo cable from the adapter into the computer speakers.


Or, if the TV headphone jack is 3.5" instead of the larger 1/4" headphone type you could simply get a 3.5" stereo Y adapter and then plug the headphones into one end of the Y and the computer speakers into the other.


Either way sound for everyone.


Thanks for using Fix Ya

Where do I plug my headphones into a Sony DAV-FX900KW home theatre system? I'm playing X-Box 360 (on TV/VCR1) but can't get any sound off my Philips wireless headphones. Appreciate any help


There is a headphone jack on the Sony's front panel, on the right near the bottom edge. Connect the sender part of your wireless headphones to that jack. You may need some form of adapter depending on the sender's input connectors. If the wireless headphone system is working properly, this will give you sound.
