Why doesn't my tv sound resume when I turn the headphones off.

My headphones work fine but when I turn them off the sound doesn't revert to tv speakers until I unplug the stand from tv then plug it back in.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi @texsis ,

What is the make and model number of the TV?

Has it worked OK this way with this TV before?

The headphone stand that is connected to your TV is the cause of your issue. As long as it is plugged into the TV, the TV will send the sound out to the headphones. The bad news is that this is pretty standard behavior for any device with a headphone jack.

Some background: The headphone jack acts as the indicator that tells your TV that you want sound out the Headphone Jack versus the speakers. Inserting the cable into the jack tells the TV to turn off the speakers and send the sound to the headphones. And vice versa, Disconnecting the cable from the TV lets your TV know that you want sound back through your speakers and not your headphone jack.

Unfortunately I'm not aware of any TV's on the market that would be able to change the sound from TV speakers to headphones simply by turning off the headphone switch on those headphones that you are using.
