What's the full model number off of the back of the TV?

What is the brand and model of the converter?

You first need to connect an optical cable to the TV and to the converter, and then run a set of RCA cables to the headphone base. Then use the original TV remote, go into MENU and find the options for sound/audio then go and shut the TV's speakers off. Let me know what happens.

I turbned off the speakers only by transfering the on indicator to audio/optical. the ear phones are searchiong but i get nothiong
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 7 months ago
I'm not sure what you mean by the on indicator. In the TV menu did you select external sound system and did the TV soakers shut off? Also the headphones searching and getting nothing would mean they are not pairing to their transmitter.

When the speaker is on the indicator is a series of comopact blue lines undulating. these went off when I opted for the visual/audio option and I lost all sound but the undulating lines showed by the vision audio sign. My old sony TV and headphones needed none of this.

the TV output is set to video/audio the co.ax cable connected to converter and headphones connected. This being all that should be needed and getting no audio from headphones I must assume the converter is defective.I was able to use the headphones one evening for abiout an hour then shut the TV down leaving all setting as they were. since then I gor nothing. AM I BUYING THE WRONG EQUIPMENT/
TV Technician: Harry, Customer Service replied 7 months ago

coaxial cable is going from the converter to the headphones? Did you mistype that?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Sorry;- the coax is connected from TV to converter. Red and yellow cables connect converter to headphones. My suspition is that I have a defective converter. I expect there is no way of testing it . Just buy another and hope
