Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Can the audio be heard normally from the TV while these headphones are also being used? One person in the family is deaf and will use the headphones while the rest of the family will watch also with the sound from the TV.

Randy - I don't know what TV you have but in general media devices turn the internal speakers off when you plug anything into the headphone jacks. If your TV does you can probably do the following for probably around $20 (USD)


If you have a relatively new TV you could get a pair of inexpensive self powered computer speakers and a simple 3.5 mm to RCA stereo adapter. Then plug a standard red-white RCA stereo cable into the red-white stereo output jacks on the TV and the other end into the 3.5mm adapter and a 3.5" stereo cable from the adapter into the computer speakers.


Or, if the TV headphone jack is 3.5" instead of the larger 1/4" headphone type you could simply get a 3.5" stereo Y adapter and then plug the headphones into one end of the Y and the computer speakers into the other.


Either way sound for everyone.


Thanks for using Fix Ya

Why tv still audible through headphones


Because you haven't read the manul. New TVs have a volume control for each. It's a pain for normal use. But it does allow a hard of hearing family member to have their own volume preset for headphone use while the rest of the household use the speaker volume as normal.

Sharp LC-32D12E (A) need wireless e/phones & amp. I am going deaf


A lot of low-cost TVs do not offer the option for parallel (let alone separately controlled) output for headphones and main speakers. In fact a lot of low-cost TVs do not have any audio output whatsoever. If you have a headphone socket you can consider yourself lucky in this regard. And if you do I am not sure what your problem is. You want to have both running at the same time? This can be arranged with a little effort, but it would be inconvenient and risky as both will be commanded from the same place which means that any time the person listening to the TV speakers wants to change volume the person with the headphones will be affected as well.

I have a panasonic spatializer 3-d stereo tv, great picture but no sound??


Check whether the mute button is activated or jammed. Try using a headphone and check whether audio is heard. If not, connect the same input to a different TV and check whether the audio is heard. If yes, this might require attention by a qualified service technician.

I want to hook headphone to my Sharp's 32SB24U TV. I plugged in to audio jack, but the sound is not coming out from headphone. It's still coming out from TV's speaker. Do I need to do someting...


That jack is meant for connecting to Home Theater Systems or to computers not for headphones but it may still work. If you go to your menu and find Output Select change this option to variable. On the off chance it works you might want to be careful when testing... it may lead to sudden deafness if its too loud. By the way this will turn off the sound coming from your speakers.

Hope that helps!

How to find JVC AV27320 headphone jack? I've plugged into the avs(red & white) in the front panel as well as the extra ones in the back. Altho - I CAN hear the sound thru the headphones, The external...


This model doesn't have a headphone jack. The only JVC TV in the series that does is the model AV-20D202. For the JVC AV-2732, use the RCA audio out jacks with an RCA to 3.5 mm adapter to connect to the headphones. The front audio jacks are audio in (for the audio from a video camera for example).

When you use any external speakers or headphones through the audio out jacks, make sure to turn off the TV speakers. Press Menu and navigate down to TV Speakers (up/down arrows). Then use the right/left arrows to select Off and then Exit the menu. Make sure you scroll the TV volume before doing this. Note: if your headphones do not have a volume control they are a bad choice for this type of audio output.

You can find the manual for the TV here: http://books.jvc.com/booklist.asp?Model=AV-27230 .

I wish that I had better news for you.

My view sonic monitor has no sound


Troubleshooting Sound Issues Verify that the audio cable is connected to the AUDIO OUT or LINE OUT output on the Sound Card and plugged into the AUDIO IN or LINE IN of the Monitor.   Make sure there are no cables connected to the Headphone Jack (located next to the AUDIO IN port) on the monitor. If there is, please disconnect that cable and try the speakers again. Connecting a cable to the Headphone Jack disables the speakers. If there is no cable connected into the Headphone Jack, test a pair of headphones into that jack to see if you can hear sound out of the headphones. If you are able to hear sound out of the headphones, disconnect the headphones and try the speakers again.   Verify that the Mute on the monitor is not on or the Volume is not turned down.    Verify that the Mute on the computer is not on or the Volume is not turned down.<    If there is still no audio from the monitor's speakers, connect the Audio cable to another audio source like a portable CD player or tape player headphone output. If audio can be heard through the monitor's speakers, then there may be an issue with the computers sound card.    Connect another set of computer speakers (if available) or headphones to the AUDIO OUT or LINE OUT output on the Sound Card. If NO audio can be heard then there is an issue with the sound card. Verify with the computer's manufacturer for additional assistance.   LCD TVs Troubleshooting No Sound from a LCD TV No Sound when using RGB (when connected to a PC) Confirm the audio cable is plugged into the Audio in on the LCD TV and the audio out on the computer. Note: On the N1700W use the GREEN mini-jack; on this model Audio is SHARED between DVI and RGB, there is only 1 audio channel for data connections. The N1700w is designed to take a 1.0v RMS audio signal for optimal sound quality.   Confirm that both the LCD TV Mute and Windows Mute are off. A general message will be displayed on screen to indicate status of Mute (On or Off).   Press the Volume Up Button on the monitor or remote to confirm the Volume is not set to zero.   Confirm that PC volume is sufficient by using Windows/Macintosh Volume adjustment settings.   Try plugging another audio source such as a CD or Cassette Player directly into the Audio port on the LCD TV to confirm the speakers work, or try plugging headphones or external speakers into the sound card on the Computer. If the Headphones or External Speakers do not work, contact the manufacturer of your Computer for further support. No Sound when using S-Video/Composite/ Component Video Confirm the audio cable is plugged into the Audio in on the LCD TV and the audio out on the S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device.   Confirm Mute is off. A general message will be displayed on screen to indicate status of Mute (On or Off).   Press the Volume Up Button on the LCD TV or Remote to confirm the Volume is not set to zero.   Try plugging headphones or external speakers into the audio port on the S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device. If the Headphones or External Speakers do not work, contact the manufacturer of your S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device.   Note: Some ViewSonic monitors do not include speakers.

My deaf father has been recommended to use headphones when watching TV. However, when his stereo headphones are plugged into the headphone jack socket, the internal speakers of his Sony KDLS32A12 are muted...


This is not a typical setup for most TVs. There are ways around it though. If your set has a set of audio output jacks, than those can be used to power a separate sound source for the headphones. There are adaptive listening systems available for this purpose what use either infra-red transmitters or RF transmitters to matching headphones. The key here is whether or not the TV has the audio output available.

Please check that and update this with what you find and I'll try to provide a solution within the context of your specific set. Post the TV model number too.

Thanks,
Dan

I have an LG plasma TV.The only audio out is by optical toslink. I bought an LG home cinema system thinking I would be able to get analog audio out via a scart adapter but nothing doing. This is so my...


ok so you already established the optical connection from your TV to the hometheater system right? then follow these steps:
*first get look for any PRE-OUT terminal at the back of the amplifier
*get two rca cables (red and white to be color coded) and stick it to the PRE-OUT terminals of the amp.
*then get an adapter that will allow you to connect the headphones to the other end of the RCA cables (i think its available at radio shack).
*make sure that your headphones have volume adjusters. because the volume level on the PRE-OUT is fixed and cannot be adjusted using the amp. the only way to adjust it is by adjusting the volume level on the headphones. ü

after this you should be good to go...TC!

Audio from tv is not restored by turning off power on headphones


It sounds as if you are plugging the base into a standard headphone jack located on the Television set.

RCA Headphone jacks (incl mini) automatically stop the sound output to the main speakers on almost every set I have seen.. or home stereo.. etc etc

In other words you can take a standard RCA jack.. with nothing connected to it.. plug it in while the music or sound is coming out the main speaker.. and it will cut off the output to those speakers..

If you set has audio outputs on the back.. preferably Fixed Audio Out .. you will need to connect your base unit to those.. turn your set volume to 0 and adjust the headset volume using the control on the right ear-cup.

If you have variable audio out.. you will need to go into your TV sets setup menu.. turn off the speaker.. and turn up the set until you achieve a signal and decent volume through the headset.

If you are missing these connections.. your current “work around” is your only solution.

Best of luck
