Checks and Adjustments
- Check that the AC 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.
- Check that the headphones are turned “ON” and the red Power Indicator Light is brightly lit.
- Check that the batteries are firmly seated following polarity as shown in the battery compartment.
- Check that the audio source (stereo, TV, etc.) is turned on and providing sound as it normally should.
- Check that the headphone 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 be active.
- Check that the headphone Tuning Indicator Light is illuminated red. If not, adjust the Tuning Control Wheel until the light illuminates red.
- Check the batteries – they may be weakening.
- Confirm the batteries are “good.” When batteries begin to weaken, there can be static breakup. If necessary, replace/recharge the batteries.
- Check that the antenna is in the upright position
- Check that the Transmitter Audio Level Indicator Light is flickering intermittently. If you are using a fixed output and the light is on solid or flickering very rapidly, or if the light is not on at all, adjust the Output Level Control Wheel so that the light flickers intermittently. or
- If you are using a variable output, make sure the Output Level Control Wheel is all the way left (as shown under ADJUST 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 Transmitter Frequency Control Wheel to change the operating frequency. Then readjust the headphone Tuning Control Wheel until the Tuning Indicator Light illuminates red.
- Try changing the physical location of the transmitter. Locate it as high and free of obstruction as possible. Avoid placing directly on top of a TV, if possible.
- Try changing the antenna position, particularly if you think you may be near maximum transmitting range.
- Try moving 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.
Sound from One Earpiece Only:
- Check the left/right balance control on the audio source
- Try fine tuning the headset using the Tuning Control Wheel.
- Check the batteries - they may be weakening.
