That sounds like a bad adaptor to me.  I've got a mono to RCA adaptor on 
mine and it's working just fine.

The connection isn't as solid as I'd like, but when one is hanging a 
shielded RCA cable off of such a small piece that plugs into an even 
smaller jack, I guess one can't have everything.  :-)
