TV Sound problem

Panasonic 42inch flat screen tv.     USB powered computer speakers plugged into the phone outlet on the back

Both speakers work fine....

speakers have a socket on the front to plug in phones.... this mutes the speakers.

( I wanted this arrangement so I can watch my music videos on big screen, when missus is in bed, and not use the speakers, but use "proper" earphones).

On plugging in the phones to the speakers..... sound only comes in the left earpiece.

Removing the USB Phones plug from the back of the tv and plugging the phones in direct to the phones outlet   .... sound only comes in the left earpiece.

( suspect the phones )... however.... I use the phones on my laptop, and have double checked ( after this problem on the tv )... and the phones work properly.

 

Any suggestions?

Re: TV Sound problem

Maybe somewhere in the TVs settings menu there is an option to adjust the balance between L and R which has somehow been moved to left?

You may find that just the left speaker on the TV itself is the only one 'working'?

Re: TV Sound problem

Been through the settings... and restored to factory reset.... 

Also... why does the usb speakers work .... and the phones don`t  ?   does not compute ! ! !... if only one side were working on the tv... (due to the settings )  then only one side would be working on anything plugged into the outlet socket  ? ? ? ?

Re: TV Sound problem

Could well be a faulty connector on the USB speakers given the checks that you've reported on?

@MauriceC  Doubt it....  

 

quote from original post...

plugging the phones in direct to the phones outlet   .... sound only comes in the left earpiece.

 

That being the same place at the back of the tv where the USB phones lead is plugged in.which produces sound in both speakers..

Re: TV Sound problem

Try plugging the speakers into your laptop, with the phones plugged into the speakers... Grin

Re: TV Sound problem

Sounds to me like the headphone jack body is too big, and is preventing it plugging all the way in to the USB/TV socket. Happens a lot with phones with protective cases.
