LK 260 headphone question

5 posts in this topic

Hi all,

 

I just bought the casio LK 260 and i saw in the specs it had a headphone jack (3,5mm) so i assumed that if i plugged in my headphones ,i would get sound through that...but allas, i still get sound from the keyboard speakers.

 

Anything i need to do to get this working?

 

Thanks in advance

 

Regards

Ok.  Let's start with something simple. Double check that it is the headphone jack and is plugged in all the way.

You need to check the label on the LK-260 for the jack that you are connecting your headphones to.  If you are, in fact, connecting them to the 3.5 mm jack, then you are connecting them to the wrong jack.  The 3.5 mm jack on the rear of the LK-260 is an Audio INPUT jack for connecting the headphones output of a CD or MP-3 player, etc to play them through the LK-260's speakers (usually for playing along with backing tracks).  When viewing the LK-260 from the REAR, the jack furthest to the RIGHT is the PHONES/OUTPUT jack.  It is immediately to the RIGHT (viewing from the REAR) of the power connection and is a standard 1/4 inch TRS (Tip / Ring / Sleeve) stereo jack.  If your headphones are equipped with a 3.5 mm plug, then you will need to connect them to the LK-260 with a 3.5 mm to 1/4 inch stereo adapter plug:

There are gnomes that steal these adapters and all of a sudden it will turn up missing. So do yourself a favor and grab a few more when you get a chance. I keep a dozen in my toolbox. :-)  BTW: If your playing is bad, get the gold plated ones.. they instantly make you sound better!
