Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.
Could you please tell me the brand and the full model number of the tv? (hd, 1080p, led, etc are all features).
Please also clarify which earphone connection you are using. Does the tv have an actual 3.5mm minijack plug?

Hi Steve,
sorry for the account issues. Unfortunately I can't adjust anything on your account, or even see your email address. The account for this site must be in her name. If you go to MyAccount at the top of the page, you can change it there.
Hopefully you'll receive my reply when it comes through here.
This is a common problem with these newer tvs. Most don't even have a headphone jack in the first place, and of those that do they typically cut the main speakers when in use.
There is a way around this, but it requires a bit of extra equipment.
What you'll have to do is forego the actual headphone slot, to keep the main speakers going for her. You'll then use the digital audio output, which should always be on, connected to a small converter box that can then drive the transmitter for your headphones.
