Hello,

this is probably because there is dust in the headphone jack socket of the TV. There is no contact between the TV and the headphone, that's why its not working.

Get a screw driver, open the TV cover in order to gain access to the headphone jack, then dip a tooth brush into a methylated spirit container and use it to clean the jack area. This will smooth-en the area and there should be contact this time.

I hope this makes sense to you.

Good luck.

How do I get headphones to work on my tv


Faulty headphone socket. If anybody have serviced this set before; might have short circuited the internal contacts of the headphone socket. You have to replace the socket. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Having problem with audio, with auria tv (when unplug headphones, sound will not come back on tv)


The socket for the jack on the set has a leaf connection that when you insert the jack moves aside routing sound to head phones and cutting it off to speakers= the socket for the jack is out of position inside, either needs to be replaced or tweaked inside just a little.

Not much else can cause this if the headphones work.

When I plug in a headphone from the jack in the back the sound still comes out the speakers not the headpone. Element fxl-1910


Is your Headphones ok - Have you tried them on something else?

Is the plug on the headphones of the correct type and size?

If you mute the TV or turn down the volume - does this affect the headphone volume?

Also, Do you get sound out of the Headphones at the same time as the speakers?

If the above checks out to be OK - You may have a faulty Headphone socket in the TV.

Normally when you push headphones into a TV it usually pushes a piece of Metal in the head phone socket that disengages the speakers
The socket can go faulty

I have a Toshiba 46XV550 LCD TV. It has a headphone jack but this mutes the TV speakers when I plug in wireless headphones. Can I use another outlet (with an adapter) so the TV speakers stay on and I can...


I went to the local electronics store and bought one 2xRCA sockets-3.5mm stereo socket splitter and 2 RCA joiner/couplers and plugged that into the monitor audio plugs at the back of the TV. Works great for a total of $12.00.

Headphones socket does not work


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.

Hitachi L26H01U headphone socket doesnt work


User problem!! The main TV volume and the headphone volume work independently so you can have the TV volume set at zero and use the headphone volume. However I suggest getting a pair of headphones with it's own volume control.
