|Why isn't there any sound coming from the AW771 headphones?
- Check that the transmitter AC power adapter is fully inserted into the wall outlet and the power cord from the AC adapter is firmly connected to the transmitter power input jack.
- Confirm that the headphones are turned ON and tuned to the transmitter – the green tuning indicator light should be glowing steadily.
- Check that the AAA batteries are fresh and inserted with correct polarity (+, –).
- Check that the audio source component (stereo, TV, etc.) is turned on and transmitting sound as it normally should.
- Check that the headphones volume is turned up.
- If you are using a Tape 2 Monitor output from your receiver/amp as the audio output, check that you have pressed the Tape Monitor/Tape 2 button on the front of the receiver. This will turn on the Tape 2 outputs, which may not have been active.
|Why is the sound coming from the AW771 headphones distorted or why is there static?
- Check that the transmitter audio level indicator light is flickering intermittently. If the light is not intermittent and you know you are using a fixed level audio source, play music on your audio source while adjusting the input level control on the back of the transmitter. Adjust the level control until the light begins to blink intermittently again. or
- If the transmitter is connected to a variable output, make sure the output level control wheel is turned up (all the way to the right - your right when looking at the front of the transmitter), and adjust the volume on the audio source up or down as necessary to make the light flicker intermittently.
- Change the position of the channel select switch (1, 2 or 3) to change the operating frequency. The headphones will detect the loss of signal and retune automatically. However, you can also press the power/scan control once to make the headphones retune.
- Change the location of the transmitter. Place it as high and away from obstructions as possible. Avoid placing the transmitter directly on top of or behind a TV.
- Move the transmitter and headphones closer together. Sending the signal through certain materials, such as glass, tile, and metal, can decrease the effective transmitting distance of the system.
