headphones problem

I am going to be filming tonight for a school project and i dont have any sort of mics. I figured I could monitor what they are saying through some headphones. (It's a one shoot opurunity so I wanted to make sure Icould hear them since there is no time for a reshoot) Apon testing some headphones I Heard a loud buzzing sound similar to a blown speaker in the right headphone. I was really mad when this happened beacuse they are kind of expensive headphones. Then plugged them into my stero adn they worked fine. At this point I plugged in another pair and I got the same problem. anyone know what is up?

EDIT: I own an Optura 20

I have an Optura 40, but I think it is the same with the 20: you have to change the output to headphone mode. Go to the menu - VCR Setup - AV/Phones. Select "Phones". I think you have to do it separately for record mode and playback mode.

What it is, is that the output doubles as the audio/video output for hooking up to a TV as well as the headphone output. If you have it on AV, it is trying to send video out to your headphones, which,as you found out, don't work so good.

Karl's advice is right on the money -- his description is exactly what is happening, and is the correct way to fix it.

hey thanks alot guys.

after looking through the menu i discoverd that .

i think it really helped me out because i was in a small dark hallway. people were screaming and it wasnt how i expected it to be. after starting i found out i had to back up to hear them, so it was a good help.

thanks,

kevin
