Without knowing the specifics on this adapter - I can provide only provide some clues as to how this works.

Basically, the A/V jacks on a TV has a "fixed" audio output level - this means that the sound levels on the A/V jacks is NOT controlled by the volume control of the TV itself. You should be able to set the TV volume to minimum and then use the adapter's volume control to make the earphone / headphone sound louder and softer. Your TV however, may have a setting in the menu that can change the audio from "fixed" to "variable". If set to "variable", when turning the volume down for the TV's built in speakers will also turn the volume down on the A/V jacks as well. You do not want this to work like that as the sound in the headphones and the TV speakers will be same - instead of the TV speakers being off and the headphones on.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks!

Sylvania wireless headphones



Instructions
1
Set up the transmitter. Wireless headphones rely on a transmitter that sends audio via infrared or radio waves to your headset. Use the digital audio output (coaxial or optical), RCA outputs (red and white) or headphone jack on your TV to connect the transmitter. The connection will depend upon which outputs are available on your TV and/or the transmitter.
2
Use an RCA-to-headphone adapter. If you don't have a headphone jack on your TV and the transmitter includes only a headphone connection, connect an RCA-to-female headphone connector. This will allow you to plug the wireless transmitter into the female headphone end and then hook the RCA ends into your television's audio outputs. You may also need a 3.5 mm (mini jack)-to-1/4-inch adapter if the headphone plug on the transmitter doesn't match the television jack.

3
Set the transmitter on top of, or next to, the television. For infrared transmitters, you'll need a direct path between the headphones and the transmitter. Placing the transmitter on or near the TV will allow you to take advantage of the clear path you already have.
4
Plug in the transmitter and turn it on. Charge the headphones if necessary.
5
Turn on the headphones. Adjust the volume and settings and you're ready to watch TV.

NEED INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOOKING UP WIRELESS HEADPHONES FOR VIZIO TV


From the manual:

1. Plug the stereo audio cable into the headphone jack of your audio
source (e.g., stereo, TV, CD player, DVD, etc.). If your audio source
has two RCA output jacks instead of a headphone jack, use the
supplied Y cable to connect your headphones to the two (red and
white) RCA jacks.
2. Connect the other end of the stereo audio cable to the AUDIO IN
socket at the back of the recharging cradle/transmitter.
3. Connect the AC/DC main power adapter to the DC IN power
supply socket at the back of the recharging cradle/transmitter. Then,
connect the adapter to an electrical outlet.
Important: This power unit is intended to be correctly oriented in a
vertical or floor mount position.

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.

I am attempting to use my sennheiser rs 110 headphones with my lcd-led tv. the componet jacks coming out of the transmitter are red and black. All my componets on the tv are red and white. so when i plug...


What are you plugging your 2 RCA connectors (from the headphones) into on the television?
You are correct, usually:
White = Left Red = Right

In this case
Black = Left Red = Right
Not sure....guess some manufacturers need to be different...
Back to the issue,
You to need to connect the Black to White and Red to Red to the TV BUT you need to make sure you are connecting to an OUTPUT and not to an INPUT on the TV. Most newer TV's do have an "audio out RCA jacks" on the TV but not all. It should be labeled at the connector if it is an output, or just another input. You can always consult the TV manual to be sure.

Few things you can do to test
  • Does your TV have a "headphone jack", use the adapter (2 RCA female - 3.5mm connector) to plug into the headphone jack and see if there is sound
  • Connect the Black and Red RCAs from the headphones directly to the another output, like a DVD player, CD Player etc....

I hope this helps,

I have Radioshack wireless headphones with a 30 foot range. I cannot hook them up to my new Panasonic Viera 42 inch HD T.V. - The "audio outlet" is a square and the headphones only have red and...


hi there.

At present, the square connector is what is called an "Optical" connector.  It's purely digital and transmits digital data via what looks to us like a RED LIGHT.  Your headphones are incompatible. Your heaphones have an analog connection on RCA Phono type connections.  The type you usually get on the back of hifi equipment.

The pannasonics DO have a headphone socket, but it is the small 3.5mm type socket.  a small round hole that looks slightly larger than a pin head.  It normally has a small diagram of a pair of headphones above or below the socket to indicate what it is.

 

In order to connect your headphones to your set you will need a stereo,male 3.5mm jack to two RCA Phono jacks. 

 

If your current lead on your headphones has "male" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold points sticking out.

If your current lead on your headphones has "female" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold surrounds with holes in.

 

With this in mind, if you have male ends you will require a stereo 3.5mm jack to stereo female Rca Phono vice versa so that they basically lock into eachother forming a "Constant chain".

 

I have tried to explain this as best I can, I hope you've managed to get the idea of what I'm saying.

 

 

 

You will either need this :

Sometimes the colours of connectors vary.  Just remember that Red to Red (for right hand side)  and White to White or Black To White  or Black To Black (for left)

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.

How to get sound on tv from laptop


When I am using my laptop to stream video to the TV, I use a set of computer speakers plugged into the headphone jack for the sound, but if you want to be able to play the sound thru the TV you are going to have to buy an adapter that will convert from the headphone jack (RCA port) to an AV port for the TV. These can be found at radio shack.

To play laptop thru samsung tv I am attempting to play laptop movie thru tv. I have tried the rca y cable with 3.5 mm plug from headphones of laptop to red and white audio in on the samsung tv., no sound....


So you are connecting the laptop to the TV using VGA port of the TV, right? To get sound in the PC input mode, you need to use the PC audio input jack (green jack, mini 3.5mm jack) not the RED and White RCA audio input, they are for Composite Video AV inputs. That is how I have my laptop and TV setup to watch Netflix.

Do I have any options to get 'audio out' instead of h/p jack?


Try the Audio 1 rear. With the headphones plugged in on some T.V.s the headphone jack unfortunately disconnects the audio from the other outputs. Try looking in the documentation to see if you can change this in the T.V.s menu as some allow you to use both for hearing impaired people. Hope this helps.,

Haveing trouble hearing sound when I have my IPod connected


You need a AI Net cable or Speed Cable... It plugs into the back of the radio (looks like a circle with holes), and the other end can have a "Y" plug (headphone jack and iPod flat jack). The headphone jack for sound, the flat jack to charge he iPod while listening. I just bought mine on Crutchfield.com for $29.99. With the discount code: 3A156 you can get standard shipping free. The item # is: 127ICALPA and it's named "PAC iPod Adapter for Alpine".
