Question about RCA WHP140 Consumer Headphones
Hook it up, plug it in, worked well for 45 seconds. Power supply light goes off. No more sound completely dead, nothing works.
Unplug power supply, wait 90 seconds, plug it in, works for 45 seconds then goes off again. I even replaced the batteries in the head set!
I suspect some overload protection malfunction?
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.

I find that if the volume going in to the base isn't loud enough then the base auto turns off. Turning up the volume going in to the base keeps it from turning off, but then the headset has to be turned pretty low not to get a major noise blasting.
