Hi imaw4672

First, check inside the headphone socket for something inserted. A common find here in Australia is a mudwasp nest also. They love to built inside this sort of hole. If that isn't it, spray some contact cleaner lubricant spray into the socket. I use crc 2-26. Then insert a jack plug in and out a few times to see if you can clear the problem. The socket has switching inside it that tells the amp the headphones are plugged in. These contacts may be dirty of have dry solder joints. Check the soldering about the socket also, resolder anyway if you have an iron handy. If all this fails, you have a faulty socket. See how you go and get back to me for the next steps if you cant get it sorted. Socket replacement is probably on the cards.

Can I connect an iPhone to listen to music through a receiver?


Sure. You need an adapter cable that will plug into the headphone socket on one end, and on the other end, plug into your Onkyo's "line input", like this one:

Use a headphone to RCA/phono cable and plug it in to a spare audio input on the amp. Set the MP3 volume to about 50%.

Pioneer VSX-456 headphone jack problem


No the headphone jack doesn't disable the speakers. There are two switches in the lower middle of the receiver that are labeled speaker A and B. Pushing one of these should disconnect the speakers from the receiver.

I have a Denon AVR-3200 Surround Receiver. When I plug in the headphones, sound comes through them, but the regular speakers don't turn off. How can I make them turn off? Thank you.


There has to be a switch or a function to turn the speakers off. On my receiver, you can choose speakers A, speakers B or you can choose speakers off.

Hello, I have a Sony STR-D85 surround sound system. I need to connect my phone to the system so that my phone's music plays through my surround sound speakers. The front of the console has a headphone...


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..

Ipod to harman/kardon


Using a headphone to RCA adaptor plug the headphone jack into the headphone connector of the Ipod. Then plug the RCA jacks into any available Analogue input on the receiver. Increase the volume on the Ipod to 80% then adjust the receiver's volume according.

Or get a dock that will allow remote control and charging, such as Roth, DLO or Wadia.

How do I connect my Lenovo X200 Tablet to my new 52" Sony XBR tv and Sony STR-DA3400ES Receiver for HD viewing and home theater surround sound?


Hi,

Couple things to be aware of:
1. The X200 is not available with a Blu-Ray drive. So, your HD content will need to come from somewhere else, such as downloading from iTunes. Alternatively, you can purchase an external Blu-Ray drive. (it may be cheaper / easier to buy a dedicated Blu-Ray player if that's the route you want to go).

2. The X200 only has analog audio output. The only surround you'll be able to receive is Dolby Pro-Logic, provided your source material has it encoded that way. You can connect your laptop to the receiver via a 1/8" to RCA adapter, available at virtually any electronics retailer. (Buy the cheapest one you can find) Connect the 1/8" plug to your headphone jack on the laptop, and the white and red RCA connections to any available input on the back of your receiver. (such as CD, AUX, DVD, etc.) Select that input on the front of your receiver and you'll hear the output of your laptop. Enable surround sound processing (pro-logic) on your receiver. Check the manual for instructions on how to do that.

3. Purchase a VGA cable (I recommend monoprice.com ). I suggest staying under 15' for optimal quality. Connect one end to your laptop, and the other to the PC-in on the back of your TV. Select that input using your TV's remote. (On my Sony, I press Menu, External Inputs, then PC)
4. Set up your laptop to use the external monitor. I suggest leaving your laptop off till you plug in the VGA cable. If upon booting your laptop is outputting to the TV display, usually a key combination such as Shift-F7 will enable it.

Alternatively, your TV has an 1/8" audio input jack that goes along with the PC input. If you've connected the audio out of the TV to your receiver already, the audio from your laptop can pass through the TV to the receiver. 1/8" cables can also be purchased from Monoprice.com.

Let me know if that helps!
