I have the same model as you.

Plug in the transmitting unit into a good working power outlet. Make sure you have the audio connected to a loud source. Turn on the source device producing the loud audio to be transmitted to your headphones. Now see if the transmitting unit's LED light is on. Check headphones for audio. (May have to tune in the headphones and adjust its volume as well).
I recommend that the source of your audio have its built-in speakers off, while still providing audio out to your transmitting unit, via an external audio output. Check your source manual or look for audio jacks on the front or back. There may be a setting to turn this on and for the main built-in speakers to be turned off as well.

If this does not work, unplug the transmitting unit, and then plug it back in again, after waiting for about 10 seconds - all while audio is being provided to the unit. It should come on.


Remember that if the audio to the transmitting unit is quiet OR off for about one minute, the transmitting unit will turn off and you will hear FM noise, loudly, on your headphones. This is due to the "lack of audio" timer built-in to the transmitting unit.

Plug in the transmitting unit into a good working power outlet. Make sure you have the audio connected to a loud source. Turn on the source device producing the loud audio to be transmitted to your headphones. (This being your IPod - Turn it full blast). Now see if the transmitting unit's LED light is on. Check headphones for audio. (May have to tune in the headphones till green and adjust its volume as well).

Note: Some radio stations bleed over into the headphones and you may have gotten the "Beautiful Music" from this radio station frequency harmonic anomaly. Keep tuning your headphones till you hear your music or audio source.

I have the same model as you. I have two transmitters and three headphones actually. Please see below:

Yes. There should be port on the TV to plug your headphones.

Another poster had this issue, as do I. On that thread someone suggested cranking up the volume of the source (ie the tv/computer/mp3) of what you're listening to. I just did that and the power is still up and running, so that must have been the problem.

Give it a try.

I'm guessing no because RCA doesn't even sell this product anymore. Btw, I don't have a wire on my headset and it's the same model.

Hi Sirxon,
My headphones are not RCA, but are wireless like yours. I get this symptom when my batteries get weak. Using a volt meter, you can test the batteries voltage. They need to read at least 1.2 volts each. Check the connection from the base to Headphones. My headphones do not have a physical connection, and if I place them in the base backwards, my headphones do not charge. It may be time to get you some new rechargeable batts. I hope this helps you.

The subwoofer is much more than just another bass unit and the purpose is to reproduce sub-audible content in order to add ambience to the listening experience and before it can reproduce the sound it must first be part of the recording or performance. Even if a recording is rich in sub-audible content, unless the amplifier is designed to process and filter sub-audible frequencies, the amount of content available at the output is likely to be minimal. A pair of good 3-way loudspeakers will, most of the time produce a purer and more realistic sound with plenty of power and render a subwoofer superfluous. The fact your amp doesn't have an output for a sub means, even if you successfully connect it there is unlikely to be much activity from it. The only sensible way to connect it would be as a ghost speaker as used by many hi-fi enthusiasts since the introduction of stereo. The purpose of a ghost speaker is to fill a gap between the channels and is driven by the difference in emf between the loudspeaker positive of each channel. Unfortunately the difference between the channels isn't great enough to drive a loudspeaker so another amplifier will be needed. As it is a surplus subwoofer you are trying to find a use for you should either obtain the signal from the bass unit of each speaker or use a crossover type filter in the output of the second amp.
