Question about Sony MDR-RF970RK Headphones

1 Answer

Can these be hooked up so you can hear the tv external speakers as well?

Hello I have a question that may seem simple to audio experts but i am stumped. I recently bought my grandfather the MDR-RF970RK from best buy. The outcome I wanted was to be able to watch tv with its external speakers and allow my hearing impaired grandfather to listen via the headphones. I can not find a way to hook these up without turning off the speakers. If anyone out there can help me I'd greatly appreciate it.

I have the headset running through an amplifier so my wife can listen at her volume level and I can adjust the headset volume for myself. The volume dial on the amp is set to zero; but the audio output jacks still provide plenty of volume to the headset. You can get a reasonable amplified for $100 or less

How do i get the external audio output to work?


First make sure that your TV has an audio OUT. Most do not. If you do then you can plug into that but you will have to go into the menu on the TV under audio and turn on the external speaker feature. If you do not have an audio OUT then you will have to hook you speaker to the audio OUT of your home stereo system and hook the source output to the input of your stereo. Source being (dvd, cable box). In that case you need to turn off the internal speakers on the TV and just run it through your home stereo system.

NO SOUND ON MY TV


check the simple things:

Does set have sound when a DVD etc. is connected via the audio/video jacks?

If using a box check to see volume not turned way down there (unplug box and after a short wait plug it back to let it reboot).

check in main menu that Speakers are not switched OFF.

If set has hook ups for external speakers--is set turned to Internal or External?

if no to all the above you have a audio circuit problem

How do i hook up a rca Rtd325w dvd home theater to a coby tft lcd flatscreen


You can use either the multi pin connector cable, or plug the white, yellow and red cables to the TV set at the DVD player input or "Video 1" and the the audio output of the TV Another red and white set of RCA cables into the audio input of the home theater. This way the TV can play through the home theater system when you are watching cable or over the air.

If you do not want to hear the TV audio, you should go to the audio properties and select "external speaker system" but if you do this the home theater system must be on to hear any audio from the set until you set it back to the TV speakers through the TV's setup menus again.

The speakers are not working. if i turn up the volume, I can hear static noise, but do not get any sound. tv speakers are on. I played around with the audio settinds and all the different hdmi ports,...


Hello
There are two possibilites for this fault. The first one is, damaged speaker voice coil and the second one is damaged audio output IC. To confirm it you have to open your TV. Speakers can be checked without removing them from the cabin fittings. Check them with the helap of a multimeter; set in OHms range. You can alos check it with a standard torch cell also. Connect the two terminals of the torch cell to the two terminals of the speaker [intermittantly, not constantly]; will produce a 'thumb' sound; if the speaker is good.
Connect the 'audio out socket' of the tv, with any other audio equipment, and listen whether there is sound form the external audio equipment, like amplifier or so. If there is sound from the external audio equipment, and no sound from the internal speaker of the TV, and the speaker is good, surely the 'audio output IC' of the TV is damged and should be replaced. OK.

I just sold my surround sound system and now I can't get the on board speakers to work.


Just check the rear of the television if by chance you have left any cable still connected to the audio output jack. If there the TV might be trying to redirect the audio to an external device not present. Sometimes it could also be a simple setting to be changed , . Check if you have a switch at the back of the TV stating External or Internal speakers. From the manual i got

A/V Receiver: The TV can detect audio connections on the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack and the right (red) analog AVR AUDIO OUTPUT jack.
Note for Analog A/V Receivers: When you disconnect an analog A/V receiver, manually change the Speakers setting to TV to hear sound from the TV speakers.

Press Menu on the remote-> Goto AV
Select Audio by pressing the right key
Under that the first option of Speakers -> select and set to TV.
Only then will the TV speakers play the audio.

I have lost all sound on my tv. You can hear snapping or popping but the sound is real faint on highest setting.


Hello,

I am sorry to hear about your misfortune. Unless you changed some sound settings right before that happened then the likely cause is that your tv's internal speakers have blown. Which will cause that really faint sound even when the volume is all the way up.

If your TV has an audio out connection you can try hooking it up to surround sound or a receiver with some speakers. You may be able to use your tv this way and get sound.

Otherwise you will have to make use of your warranty if the TV is still covered. If not then there is nothing more I can suggest. Repair cost might be more than hooking it up to an external sound system.

Post back if you have any further questions or comments.Thank you for choosing Fixya.

I can't hear my tv speakers


If you are connecting your computer to your TV via the PC cable to look at the internet on your screen - you will also need to hook up an alternate audio cable from your computer to either external speakers or an audio receiver in order to hear sound - a PC cable only carries video from the computer to the television, no audio.

Want to add an external speaker to TV


If you have audio out RCA jacks then you can hook up some computer speakers that have RCA jack inputs. If you don't have audio outputs and your TV has a HOT chassis then you won't be able to do it. If your tv has a switching power supply then you can install a jack to TV speakers, so they disconect when you hook up your other speakers, if you try and hook up speaker to the TV speakers then the impedence will change, and your audio output IC will get hot and short out.
