Sony Bravia KDL32L5000 I hooked up earphones to the AV output in back red and white with a splitter to headphones. The sound is extremely low and cannot be adjusted using the remote, it shows that the sound is being adjusted but does not transmit to the earphones.

That's because that red/white is line level audio outputs , suitable for use as input to an A/V amplifier / external soundbar. If there is not a headphone jack on the TV, you're going to need to figure out another way that has an amp on those outputs.

Like Scooper said it appears that the audio ouputs on your TV are fixed, which means the volume level on those outputs does not change when you change the volume of the TV. Some TVs allow you to change the audio output between fixed and variable, but looking in your manual it does not appear that your TV has this function.

In order to change the volume on headphones hooked up to the audio out on your TV you will need to have a pair of headphones that have volume control built into them, buy a seperate headphone amp with volume controls, or buy an AV receiver with variable headphone outputs.

Thats what I thought. I was ready to go and get a small pre amp but then I remembered I had a sound system for my computer, I just unplugged it from the computer into the splitter jack, plugged my earphones into the jack on one of the computer speakers and now I can adjust the sound! Thanks!
