    Problems with headphones

    Hi,

    I have Philips 32PFL3008H/12 TV and Sony headphones. My Mum uses headphones on a regular basis and I need to fix the problem somehow. Any suggestions and help are welcome and very much appreciated

    A little bit of history. The old Sony wire headphones (relatively cheap ones) were connected to the headphones jack of the TV with an extension cord. The settings of the TV sound were adjusted so you could hear both the TV speakers and the headphones. You could control the volume of the TV with the remote. So far, so good.

    Recently I bought SONY MDR-RF865RK wireless headphones. The headphones work perfectly with our old TV (NEO) and my laptop (Apple). Unfortunately that is not the case with the Phillips TV. After messing with the TV a bit, I made them work, but now I have the problem that I cannot get any sound through the TV speakers (while the headphones are plugged in) and that is happening even with the old headphones, the ones with the wire. When the headphones are plugged in, you can control the volume of the speakers (you see the speakers icon on the screen), not like before controlling the volume of the TV itself. With the old TV (NEO) it is really simple, you plug in the wireless headsets and if you want sound through the TV speakers, you use the mute button. With the Philips TV I am lost

    Just a note: There isn't anything else plugged in the TV.

    You feedback will be appreciated.

    Hi euroaries,

    I am afraid that the TV speakers are muted as soon as you connect the headphones to the TV. I don't think it's possible to get the sound from both sources when talking about Philips TV.

    Cheers,
    V.

    Thanks Vaga,

    You are probably right. It is the same thing with my laptop. Something that is strange though is that before the wireless headphones, it was somehow possible to get both. I am talking about the cheap wire Sony headphones. Now I cannot get it. Is it possible I messed up something while adjusting the channels of the wireless headphones? I don't know if it makes sense at all. I am quite clueless with TVs and connected devices.

    Thanks, euroaries
