Samsung TV - No headphone socket.

  cqms 02:37 28 Mar 2014

Having had Samsung 42"tv for 8 years and recently purchased Aves wireless External speaker and wireless headphones, which operated beautifully from the headphone socket - the tv up and died. I purchase 43" Samsung which has all the trimmings - HD/PIP etc - but no headphone socket. Do I bin the speaker and headphones or is there a way round? Cqms

After 30 minuets of reading and searching my TV I eventually found mine.

Look at the back of your TV, if you find small protruding squares with a small hole one will be the headphone socket maybe the one at the top.

Forgot to say the writing to indicate what the socket is for is small and the same colour as the back so get a torch so you can read it.

Do I bin the speaker and headphones - ebay

Lack of output connections - no scart, no headphone, no audio out, makes life extremely difficult

I'm sure you don't want to open it up but the easiest and cheapest way would be to splice a 3.5 jack socket direct to the speaker connections and feed the cable out via tone of the air vent slots :0)

A DAC as ßeta has suggested should work.

how on earth did samsung release a tv with no headphone sockets, have you contacted the store to replace for a another set.

As the item is not actually faulty and is as the design spec the shop has no requirement to change it unless it is a goodwill gesture.

I would still ask while its new.

MechKB - The model number has already been posted and it does not have a headphone socket. Hence the DAC suggestions.
