My Sharp 27J-S260 has two septs of audio input jacks but no outputs. What are the chances of adding an audio output jack for headphones? I have the schematics and can add sound for the headphones, but I want to kill the speakers when the headphones are plugged in.
Thanks for any help, or directions to the solution.

Re: Adding Audio Output to TV
Headphone jack is perfect. Buy ( radio shack, ebay,home depot,best buy ) the mini plug to rca breakout cable and once you plug it in it should mute speakers. Otherwise go into menu, audio, and usually there is a selection to cut off speakers

Most TVs have a red and white set of RCA connectors that are marked "OUTPUT" The back panel will also have the same type connectors for audio input.(can be very confusing) They are usually marked input.
In the case where there are no RCA connectors that are marked output then the only choice is to connect into the headset 2.5 mm plug. They make a plug to rca connector cable for this purpose.
Attached is a photo of a different TV only to help to give you an example of how they are usually set up.
Typically you will connect the RCA audio output jacks to the audio input jacks on the sound bar, but if your television does not have RCA audio output, you may have to buy additional hardware to make the soundbar work. If your TV has a headphone jack, then you will need to purchase an 1/8" Headphone connector to RCA Connector cable from a local electronics or audio store. If your TV doens't have any audio outputs, you may need to purchase a digital tuner box and connect it to your TV and soundbar.
If the TV has audio output available, there will be RCA jacks somewhere for that. The standard colors are red for the right channel and white for the left, and they'll be clearly marked as audio outputs. Not all sets have audio outputs, though, while they usually have audio and video inputs. So if you find RCA jacks on the set be sure to see how they are marked.
If the TV has output jacks, all you need is a cable with the appropriate plugs at each end. The TV needs RCA plugs, while the input connector to the speakers varies by manufacturer. Typically the speakers will use a 1/8-inch stereo jack if they were made to be used with a computer, and RCA jacks if they were meant to be used in a home-theater setting. In TV sets with audio outputs, the output may be fixed and independent of the TV volume, which means you can turn the TV volume down and use just the external speakers. Or the audio output may vary with the TV volume, meaning you'll always need to have the TV volume on as well. Some people find this annoying.
If the TV doesn't have an audio output available, you can't hook the speakers to the TV. What most people do in that case is use the TV as a video display in conjunction with an AV receiver. The audio and video sources connect to the receiver, which in turn drives the speakers and provides a video output to the TV.
# 1 - You don't put phono plugs or jacks on to the speaker leads. You must have audio output jacks on your set in order to utilize surround sound. The only other way is if your using a cable box or vrc that has the audio output jacks. The way you just mentioned is the fastest way to blow your audio output ic's in the set.
!st) The antenna INPUT::RF (black wire usually from "cable TV", "Dish TV", even ANTENNA air wave reception,etc.) into INPUT of VCR\DVD, OUTPUT of VCR\DVD to TV RF input. 2nd) If you have INPUT\OUTPUT to what are called " RCA " jacks on your TV, on the front or on the back, then any & all output jacks from VCR\DVD goes to INPUT\OUTPUT of the TV. In other words:: output of audio on VHS\DVD to input of audio on TV( RCA jacks). Output of video on VHS\DVD to input of video (RCA jacks)
Hope this helps
If it has an "AUX" input or any other type of RCA jacks for an input, you can connect the TV RCA audio jacks output to the input RCA jacks of the Aiwa.
That's what you would need.
RCA audio outputs on the TV
RCA audio input on the Aiwa
Just look at the back of each unit and see if it has them. RCA audio jacks are the small circular red and white jacks. They will be labed on each unit what they are for. You need output jacks on the TV and input jacks (but not for phono) on the Aiwa.
