    I bought a set of these off of ebay. Same exact thing happened. I thought it might be the transormer so i tried another one. it didn't help. I took the base apart but could not find anything loose or broken. I bought another set off of ebay, same problem yet again, the only differance is that these will stay on a few minutes before it turns off.

    Can't get the base stay turned on, seems like a false contact, but there's no aparently damage

    Exactly the same symptoms. The transmitter light goes on and the headphones work just fine. Then the light goes out and the sound stops. Perhaps this issue is a problem with heat dissipation in the transmitter. The unit gets too hot and the transmtter shuts down. Just a thought

I have always assumed this has to do with the level of the signal coming in.
I have had these headphones for a few years, getting them at a discount outlet for cheap, and have been quite pleased with them.

The light on the front indicates 3 things.
1) no light = not transmitting and not charging
2) green light = transmitting
3) red light = charging

When there is sufficient signal to transmit, the green light comes on.
If you are getting the signal from a Stereo, the line output may NOT be enough to keep the transmission on.
There seems to be a sensor, that figures out if htere is an incoming signal to transmit. I have toyed with the idea of locating that and disabling, so it would always transmit what is incoming, even if a low signal! But I don't have the know how.

As is, I use the headphones with my PC and generally it finds the signal strong enough to continue to transmit.

.. Thanks... Andrew

PS..The toughest thing about these haedphones, is going to be finding NiCad batteries to keep them working. If you go in the store these days, you can find lots of NiMetal Hydride, and NiCad are gone from the shelves!

The stand by light comes on but when I press the power button nothing shows up on the tv. Opened the back of the tv and manually hit the power switch and the tv doesn't power up.

there is a short circuit in the main power suply or in the high voltage power supply; a diagnosis is needed to determine what part got electrical shock. this kind of problem is average in the service bench so i recomend to ask for an estimate if you want to keep this tv
