SOURCE: Replacement connector for Sennheiser PX 250 doesn't work...

The bare copper conductor wire is the screening/common earth to the two signal wires of green and red. The important connection is the copper wire which goes to the jack plug earth which is the section furthest from the tip. The other two are the left and right signal connections. If you get these the wrong way round you will just have to swap them over. Check if they are the right way round by using the balance control on your amplifier or whatever. Have you checked that the problem is not with the headphone amplifier within your equipment? Don't rely on OK sound from loudspeakers as the headphones may be fed from separate op-amp output chip. Try another pair of cheap and cheerful headphones to make sure.

The two copper wires on your headphones are independent grounds for each channel. Twist them together and attach them to the ground cable ( black) of the new plug. The colored wires of the headphone correspond to the live wires of each channel, and the plug should have the same colors. Wiring together the grounds will not affect in any way the stereo separation, it is just that each ear needs its own ground. Cheaper headsets just transfer the ground from one ear to the other one through the metal headband.

SOURCE: I am searching a sennheiser

It appears that the 238 has a cable connected to one headphone only.
If this is the case, try your existing cable.
If both ends look identical and plug into your music player easily, you could try any audio cable with
3.5mm mini plugs on each end.

I have used such to drive low powered speakers, and discount the hype about audio cables.

If you look on eBay, entering "sennheiser hd cable", a number of sellers have cables, none specifically claimed to fit.
The cheapest among the first few entries advising the cable has a 3.5mm plug at one end and a 2.5 mm plug at the other. If my first suggestion is unworkable, this will probably work.

Alternatively you could try to find one locally, to test for fit before purchase.

Check the other sellers for a look at pictures and possibly details if I got it wrong at the start and your cable has 2 connectors at one end.

If all else fails, take your headphones to you local electronics supplier, get plugs that fit and get a good friend with a soldering iron to make you up a cable.

SOURCE: Sennheiser Hd 205 headphones stopped working properly

Although I'm not an expert I'm not quite sure if armadillopic is right. I had the exact same problem and managed to overcome it by replacing the cable from the headphone to the mini-jack plug. I actually only had to renew the last bit of the cable but chose to replace the entire cable. I found out that when I bend the last part of the cable in the exact right position the strange high pitched sound that was going over the vocals went away and the vocals became much louder and clearer like they normally did. Perhaps you can try if this works for you as well? Just bend the last end of the cable in various kinds of positions (NOT TO EXTREME OR YOU WILL ONLY DAMAGE THE CABLE MORE!). Hope you are able to narrow down the problem to just the cable. Greetings!

I have a 2002 Chrysler Town & country and I can't get the sound to work for the Vcr/player Without headphones. How do I get the sound without the headphones?


I had one of these and it turned out to be the headphone jack, when you put the headphone plug into the jack it disables the speaker and when you unplug the headphones it enables the speaker. There's a contact in the jack and it is probably stuck to headphones. The jack may need to be replaced. Try and wiggle the plug a few times but not hard as it may break from the curcuit board.

Bought turtle beach z11 headset, cant get mic to work


The Z11 has a four-pole input/output plug to connect the mic and the earphone. The earphone needs to be connected to the earphone jack and the mic needs to be connected to the mic input jack on the back of the computer. In other words, you should have to 3.5 mm plugs. Plugging both into the same jack will disconnect one or the other. Check your adapter, It should have two separate 3.5mm plugs. If it does, be sure they are connected to the right jacks on the computer. The headphone jack will have a headphone symbol; the mic jack will have a microphone symbol. Go to System Preferences, Sound. Select the line in preference for input and the line out preference for headphones. Just may work.

I cant get sound on my viewsonic va520


You need to add some information - what is the source for the video that you are viewing on the VA520? The VA520 has no speakers in it. If it is a desktop computer, look on the back of the computer for a green 3.5 mm stereo audio port. This is your speaker out connection. Plug in any set of computer speakers or headphones. (Computer speakers may require a USB connection or to be plugged into an AC outlet to power the speakers.) You can find cheap speakers for under $20; good speakers will be more expensive. With a laptop or some desktops, you'll find a headphone jack on the front of the computer. (This will be labeled with a small picture of a set of headphones.) The headphone jack is also a 3.5 mm stereo port.

I hope this helps.

(laptops usually have internal speakers; most desktops do not have any internal speaker anymore. If you have headphones with RCA audio plugs, you can use a RCA F/F to 3.5 mm M audio adapter to use them with the computer. A stereo system may not work with a computer.)

Model ELCHW402 40" LCD


The TV has two audio out options: a digital audio out (coaxial) and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Both of these are just above the antenna in connector. The headphone jack is the top one.

For a sound system that uses RCA stereo plugs, get a 3.5 mm (M) to 2 red/white RCA F adapter at the headphone jack and use an RCA audio cable from the adapter to the sound system. Alternatively, you can use a 3.5 mm audio patch cable from the headphone jack and the 3.5 mm (F) to 2 RCA (M) adapter at the sound system. The TV speakers will probably be turned off automatically with this connection.

If your sound system has digital audio, get the digital audio cable. You will need to enter the menus to make this audio output active. See the Audio menu > SPDIF Type (PCM, Dolby or Auto).

I hope this helps.

I have an Acer Aspire Notebook. When I plug headphones into the audio jack there is no sound, however, the sound works fine from the notebook speakers. Can anyone help me?


Hi, May I know if have tried alternate headphones and if they are the same?Does the headphone work when wiggled within the port if yes then the issue is with the headphone jack being loose and you would need to send the computer for a repair if covered by the manufacturers warranty as the headphone jack needs to be replaced. Thank you for your time.

Dell Inspiron 6000 PC Audio Ports Damaged


You should have sound from the speakers at all times until headphones are plugged into the jack, the jack then overrides the speakers and allows you to listen using the headphones. If the speakers aren't working, it's because they're being overridden by the damaged jack. The only way to correct this is to replace the faulty jacks. You could get a set of external speakers, the con is they're bulky and inconvenient.
