How to connect headphones if the tv doesn't have a headphone jack
Hi there, My Daewoo LCD model dlv32c7smb doesn't have a hole in it for me to connect my head phones into,
I have found an RCA cable red and white one end and 3.5m sound jack on the otherside but no matter which rca red and white holes I try the headphones still don't work, do you have any suggestions, plse not you may have gathered I am not too technically minded,

Through the 3.5mm headphone jack from your headphones, its a pretty small hole usually to the front of the tv set, being so small you may have to look for it. If it is wireless you will need to connect the main headphone system to the back of your TV (audio in jack) then ensure system is powered on and headphones are charged.
The only way to do it (unless you go inside the TV and modify the TV) is to use a small headphone amplifier (or powered PC speaker system with out headphone jack) and connect it to the AUDIO line out (Red and White RCA jacks) on the back of the TV.
This set doesn't have a headphone jack, nor does it have RCA audio output jacks. Without one or the other, you're out of luck connecting headphones to this TV.
I remember a product some years ago that allowed adding headphones using
a small microphone placed in front of the speaker. This was hooked to a
little amplifier that ran the headphones so the volume could be
independently controlled. It was marketed as a way to let
"hearing-impaired" family members listen to TV shows without needing to
make it uncomfortably loud for others. I haven't looked, but something
similar might still be available. It's cumbersome, though, and needs power, plus maybe being costly if you find one.
It's possible to add a headphone jack, but you need to know how to do electronic soldering. Find a spot on the case where you can make a hole and mount a headphone jack, then wire it to the speakers. If you want the headphones to cut off the speakers when plugged in, you need a switching jack, and the speaker wires need to be cut and connected to the correct terminals. The switch built into the jack then disconnects the speakers when the headphone plug is in. If you don't need to turn off the speakers it's a little easier. You just need to wire from the jack to the speaker terminals. I've added jacks on quite a few sets. If you don't feel up to it and don't know anyone who is, you can see if a TV shop (if there are any left in your area!) would do it. (The shop I used to work for charged about $20, including the jack, but that was over 10 years ago now.)
Visio might not have a headphone jacks at all! Look around your set and, probably you won't find jack marked as headphone. You might need to use wireless headphones, what have an rca plugs and connect them to audio monitor out on your tv set. Good luck! Alex's TV Service, Philadelphia, PA 215-806-5980.
Yes. 2 possibilities:
1 - the new tv has a headphone jack - just plug them in. 2 - no headphone jack - buy a RCA to phone jack adaptor, plug it in the audio line out RCA connectors, plug the headphones into it and mute the tv.
you have to hook up the 1/4 headphone jack plug to the TV, from the computer. an Y audio cable with RCA plug (male) with headphone 1/4 male plug. hook the headphone jack to the green hole of the computer(sound out) to the audio input of the TV better yet to a stereo AUX port. also make sure the mute button hasnt been pressed.
