Starting with the most common/most likely problems, eliminate the possible causes until the problem has been isolated, then proceed to correct or repair it. Keep in mind that, always turn off the power to the system when connecting or disconnecting cables and wires. Turn on the system to after each step to check for correct operation:

1. Check Speaker Wires: Inspect the speaker wires from the receiver to the speakers and look for damage or loose connections. Pets can chew through speaker wires. Ensure that the speaker wires are firmly connected on both ends. Make sure that the insulation is adequately stripped on both ends of the wires and they are inserted far enough to make good contact with the speaker connectors. If the problem persists, move to the next step.
2. Check Speakers: If possible, connect another speaker to the receiver and test the system. If it does, the speakers may be damaged or defective. If the problem persists, move to the next step.
3. Check the Source Component(s): If you are using a CD or DVD player, try using the AM/FM tuner built into the receiver, or a tape player or any other source connected to the receiver. If the receiver works on some sources but not others, the problem could be the analog or digital cables between the source component(s) and the receiver. Replace the suspect cables and try the source component again.
4. Check the Receiver: Make sure the receiver is plugged into the wall and the wall outlet is working. Make sure that the speakers are turned on via the Speaker A/B switch (found on the front panel of most receivers). If the lights on the front panel illuminate when turned on, the problem could be the amplifiers in the receiver. Try using a pair of headphones connected to the receiver to verify that the receiver is operating. If you hear sound from the headphones it means that part of the receiver is working. Make sure the correct source is selected on the receiver.
5. Try Another Receiver: If all of the steps above do not work, it is likely that the problem is isolated to the receiver. If possible, connect another receiver or amplifier to the system and try again. If the system works, the problem is the receiver. Contact the manufacturer or service center for further advice or repairs.

    The headphone jack normally runs off the output amp through some
    dropping resistors. So if the amp doesn't work, the headphones won't
    either. Measure for shorts and get back to us. I think those used a driver IC
    and output transistors along with a bias transistor. Blown outputs are

    When You turn the unit on, about five seconds later I hear a "switch"
    and the display goes off.

    If yes, this is likely the internal protection circuits kicking in. These
    'protections circuits' are meant to protect against overload on the
    outputs including shorted speaker wires, and probably thermal
    overheating protection. But, these protection circuits are not meant to
    block voltages applied to the speaker output from some external source,
    because no amp manufacture would expect anyone in their right mind to do

    Which brings up the question, why on earth DID you do this?

    You could have connected either the audio outs (audio, not speaker) of
    your TV to the audio in (AUX or Tape) of the amp. You could have even
    connected the headphone jack of the TV to the Aux or Tape of the amp.
    But why or why would you tie the output of one amplifier (the TV) to the
    output of another amplifier (the stereo).

    Likely the power outputs of the amp are blown in some way, either burned
    open or shorted. Which would explain why the protection circuit is
    tripping after you turn it on.

    Test it.

What do I have to do to hookup a headphone to my 60 in vizio TV?

Without opening set, easiest thing you can do is hook up a small receiver to the audio outputs of tv and then plug your headphones into the headphone output of receiver. And when not using the headphones you can always hook up some external speakers to the receiver - they will always sound better that the speakers that come with the tv.

Headphone jack is an output not input jack. Your going to need a cord to go from your headphone jack(output) of your phone to audio input on your receiver. The cord has a mini stereo plug to the phone and RCA plugs of left and right to your receiver auxiliary input. Good luck..

Distorted sound from headphone jack

If possible try with another pair of headphones. If speaker outputs are ok, probably indicates a faulty output of headphone amp, if is seperate circuitry from speaker output.

I cant get any sound I did the trouble shooting

Changing the Audio Output
To switch audio output from the internal TV speakers to a connected external sound system or headphones:
Press 1. MORE.
Press 2. 9 (AUDIO).
Press 3. until the Speakers option is displayed. The Speakers option will display only if an A/V receiver connection has been detected.
Press 4. to switch between TV and either AV Receiver or Headphones.

Check if the MUTE key is on.
• The TV's "Listen to:" setting may be set to SAP (analog program from the ANT input) but no SAP is being broadcast.
• Check that the Speakers option is set to TV to hear sound from the TV speakers. Possibly sound is being sent to one of the audio outputs for an A/V receiver or headphones.
• If using an A/V receiver, check that the Speakers option is set to AV Receiver to hear sound from the A/V receiver speakers.
Press and hold the POWER button on the control panel for 10 seconds to perform System Reset.

I have no sound coming out of my speakers when I connect the receiver to my tv and ps3.

There's really not enough info here to answer your question. What outputs are you connecting to what inputs on your receiver? 1. Does the receiver produce sound from other inputs? If yes, then receiver to speaker is OK. 2. Do you have sound at a headphone jack but not speakers? This would indicate bad speaker wiring or blown output fuses.
A bit more info will help - maybe gathering it will lead you to where the connection is not correct.

No I don't think so . These are complex units . If your headphones work then is routing the sound to the output circuit then you should get sound out the output jacks.

No sound from speakers?

This is likely to be th output relay having corroded contacts. The headphone output is taken directly from the sepaker output but fed through resistors. The output relay has failed.
