Hi satisfy_2liv,
The fault was came from the headphone jack itself, when you connect the headset to this jack, it will open the internal contact to the speaker of the TV and you will hear the sound only in the headset. But the problem is, it will not get back to contact once you pull-out the headset to return the audio signal to the speakers. This may probably has a dirty contact or totally faulty. Bad solder joints is also to consider in that area. First you may spray contact cleaner to the jack while inserting and pulling the headset plug. If symptom still persist, check the board for bad solder joints. If the joints isn't the problem,replaced the earphone jack and your unit will back to normal again.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

I can't get sound through my headphones on my Bravia kdl-52xbr5 tv. First time I have tried to hook up the headphones which are sharper image wireless


I take it the headphones are charged up and known to be in good working order? Are you using the 3.5mm headphone jack on the side of the TV or the white and red RCA jacks labeled AUDIO OUT (VAR/FIX)? If using the headphone jack the TV should shut off the internal speakers and output to the headphones. If using the mentioned RCA jacks you need to go into the audio options settings and set to Audio System. Also under audio settings, Audio Out, you can pick Fixed or Variable. If you opt for Fixed you will use the headphones to adjust the volume. If you opt for Variable you can control the headphone volume and muting using your TV remote control. Just make sure you have the headphone volume turned up adequately.

Trying to get new headphones to cancel speakers on tv


What kind of headphones and TV are you trying to make work as an combined pair? It sounds to me as though you have your head phones plugged into the speaker location on the TV which could be a small hole that shows a pic of speakers. Look on the TV for an 'mic' or 'pic of headphones' holes. If there is an plug in hole with either it states mic or shows a pic of headphones plug the headphones into that hole instead of where you have them plugged into now.

Another suggestion is to use MDI cords in which you may already be using aka white, red, yellow colored plugs. If those plugs are assembled in the slots incorrect that also could be the reason as to why the headphones turn down when you turn the volume to the TV down; which also would influence the TV volume its self to also disengage to go either louder or quieter. MDI cords should be plugged in the following pattern to be categorized as the following with each color following the next color; yellow, white, red. Now if you are using MDI cords presently do you have them plugged in front or back of the TV?

If the TV has hole ports in both front and back for MDI cords then reverse your plug ins. Example: If you have them plugged in the front instead switch all three to the back of the TV or vise versa.

Also another thing; since you are wanting to use headphones for your TV speakers instead of the TV speakers themselves usually plugging headphones in are controlled by TV volume buttons; however I am assuming that you are trying to state that when you plug headphones into the TV you still hear the volume in your ears and anyone in the TV room is also still hearing the TV even though headphones are plugged in, am I right?

With you wanting to cancel the speakers on the TV out only attempted to use TV volume for speakers and without it working means you have the MDI cord plugged into the audio which would cause the TV to power the volume for the headphones anyways. May I ask this; since I am a bit confused, alright are you wishing for the headphones to be able to be loud enough so the TV only powers them for volume when you use the TV?

I know that headphones being plugged into an TV should only keep their volume within the ear buds. Therefore I have never heard of headphones being able to be loud enough to power out room sound. Instead they power internal volume which would be within your ears. Headphones were meant to keep noise and volume from surrounding a room to block room noise out and to keep the sound for your/ an own persons only listening capability. So because of this I am confused as to how ear phones would have the ability to sound the room with audio.

I can understand that if what you are trying to say is that the speakers on the TV still output volume even with head phones plugged in which would be an issue, since head phones are to capture the volume and noise from the unit in which plays aloud- to actually silence it instead- for the individual whom requires or presumes to have themselves to be the only listener.

Hp input cycles on and off and there's no volume on my denon aver 1610 receiver


Headphone jack is bad. Two ways to fix: Either replace the headphone jack, or if you don't plan on using the headphones, unplug the cable going to the headphone jack pcb. There may be two cable on that board, unplug the one that is closest to the front panel. This will affect nothing else except disabling the headphone jack.

Where do you plug in the headphones?


You can plug in headphones but you need an adapter. Also, not all headphones will work well with this TV. You should get headphones with in-line volume control. Then connect the headphone 3.5 mm M to a 3.5 mm F to dual RCA (1/4") M/M adapter. An example is http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_05711931000P?sid=IDx01192011x000001&srccode=cii_17588969&cpncode=22-191604286-2 .

Then use the TV audio menu to turn off the TV speakers and enable the external speakers. Note the TV volume control will not effect the headphone volume.

I hope this helps.

Hi,

The audiolevel is much to low for a headphone.
You really need to use a headphoneoutput ( if its there) or a headphoneamplifier.
You tried to connect your headphone on line-level outputs.

No sound through the headphones


The way the headphone jack works is:

plug your headphones in and then mute the television using the remote.

While the TV is muted you can still use the volume up and down controls to adjust the volume through the headphones. I find that having the volume at 60-75% is more than loud enough on the headphones.

Just be careful when you unplug the headphones and take the TV off of mute, if your volume levels are still turned up you will be in for a jolt :)

Hitachi L26H01U headphone socket doesnt work


User problem!! The main TV volume and the headphone volume work independently so you can have the TV volume set at zero and use the headphone volume. However I suggest getting a pair of headphones with it's own volume control.

No sound, only static


Hi I had the same problem and just emailed Sennheiser.Go to the menu on your TV and change the variable audio output to fixed. I use the headphones through the home theatre so the volume must be max on the home theatre and then you can adjust your headphone volume. It absolutely worked and I don't get anywhere near the static noise when I go to another room with the headphones on that I got previously. Also be sure your audio cable is plugged into the fixed audio output socket. I did not have to do anything with that.
