Check the inter connections. Wire break might be the reason.

Hi edwardm1,

If you are only hearing part of the audio from your DVD player, I would suggest you check your audio settings before seeking repairs.

Audio can be encoded to a DVD in several ways. If the audio on the disc is different than the settings on your DVD player, you may not hear all of the audio layers. For example, if your DVD is encoded in 5.1 Surround Sound, but your DVD player is set only to play basic Stereo, you may only hear portions of the audio.

Try accessing the menu on your DVD player, and look for the audio settings. If there is a higher setting available than is currently selected, try a higher audio setting. A higher setting should also be compatible with lower types of audio encoding.

If this does not improve your audio, or if you need help navigating your product menus, I would recommend giving Pioneer's toll-free support line a call at (800) 421-1404.

Thank you,
Jason,

SOURCE: emerson dvd player - background sound lauder than dialogue

Greetings surfjax,

If you will allow me to make an assumption, you do not have a 5.1 surround system connected to your DVD player. This is a common experience with users of a standard TV or stereo receiver if a movie is being presented in 5.1.

In a surround sound system the center channel speaker provides almost all the vocal tracks while the side channels will provide music and some background noises. You'll still be able to hear the voices in your side speakers, but it will be muted and over powered by music or sound effects.

Some DVD players allow you to "Downmix" the surround signal to stereo. You might want to look around your sound setup on the DVD player or check your owners manual.

Hope this helps.
Jon

SOURCE: Sudden problem: voices can't be heard, everything else normal.

If this is on a home made dvd then that is probably where you the problem is.

If you try a proper store bought dvd and that works then you know its the other dvd.
But if a proper store bought dvd give the same errors then it could b a setting or part of the sound replay circuits that have or ore dying

Either the player or the set it is hooked to may have in the audio settings a "Hall" or similar setting--background will be louder than people speaking---its a setting.

Bought a new unit. The old unit was a surround sound system in which the previous owner removed the speakers. I wasn't aware of the problem but found out that it would not allow it to play on Dolby 5.1...It would only play DVD's on channel 2, therefore no english etc. Thanks for your help!!!

My panasonic dvd player is not playing the sound of the main character's voices on two diff. dvd's. Background noise and music is fine. The disks work on another dvd player, and other disks have no problem...


You are listening to a Dolby Digital source and you either don't have a center speaker hooked up or, it's not enabled. If you only have 2 speakers connected to a surround receiver, switch your receiver from surround to surround off. If this doesn't work, or you need more help, specify your system and how it's all hooked up.

DVD plays partial sound


Check your speaker connections it sounds like you have a 5.1 or higher sound system. 5.1 means left front speaker, right front speaker, center speaker, right rear speaker, left rear speaker and subwoofer.

Voices in movies all get channeled to the center speaker (you can usually hear it a bit from the right and left front speakers as well). If your center speaker is disconnected or not working, you will only hear the background sounds.

Jensen VM9510 No voices in movies


It sounds as though the unit is set up for "6-channel" surround mode, but you don't have a center speaker. That means the audio sent to that speaker isn't being heard. You'll need to get to the audio setup menu, and either turn off the 6-channel mode, or turn off the center channel option. There are two different Jensen models with the VM9510 model number, but you can download an owner's manual for either one here: http://www.audiovox.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/GenProductListCmd?type=model&catalogId=10001&storeId=10001&categoryId=VM9510&langId=-1&page=&urlString=&productId=&brand=

No sound


Sounds to me like your center speaker is either not connected, or somehow not working. The not working part could be explained by a failed speaker or, possibly a failed amp in the unit.
