Dvd audio quieter than vcr audio

When operating the unit in DVD mode the volume is very low. When operating in the VCR mode the volume is normal(noticable louder). Have tried different outputs(coax and RCA) still no volume or low volume in DVD mode.

Re: dvd audio quieter than vcr audio

I have found that I can increase the sound on my unit by changing the channel on the TV to Input 1. This increases the sound volume and quality with this unit, but does not bring it up to VCR volume.

Re: dvd audio quieter than vcr audio

There may be an audio adjustment in the dvd player that wasenr set up at the factory correctly. depending on how old the unit is I would contact the manufacturer and see if its under the factory warranty as you DO NOT wanna go inside and start turning controls as this will or could throw the entire alighnment out of the dvd player. I(f theres no warrantee then you could ask them if theres an audio output adj and what the pot # was. Or else your gonna need to get a service manual and throw ya back a few bucks. But my guess is that if you bug the service guys enough they will tell you where the adjustment is. Good luck

The audio output level is too low. How do i increase it? I have to turn the volume up on the TV almost maximum to hear a "normal" level of volume.

my experience says that the VCR/DVD recorder does NOT has a volume setting inside. Cables may be bad or connected to wrong input but most likely, the TV has a setting for the volume for any source and that is probably set to mid-range like on a PC sound control panel. Go the audio setup on the TV and see if you can adjust the level for each input.

The unit is connected to a TV via HDMI lead. I am trying to record from an LP record player to dvd via the front connection of the dvd recorder, it is recording but at very low volume?


You need a phono pre amp between the Recorder and LP. The audio out put of LP player is very low. that why the volume is very low. You should amplify it using a phono pre amp and then connect to the recorder's input.

How do you record dvd to vhs and from vhs to dvd

For VHS to DVD, put the tape to dub in the VHS slot and a blank DVD in the DVD tray. Make sure the DVD is compatible with the DVD recorder (see the recommended disc list) and is unfinalized if you are using a R/W disc. Close the tray. Set the unit to VCR mode with the DVD/VCR button. Advance the tape to the place that you want the recording to start. Then press the Dubbing button (either on the remote or the unit itself). Select the recording mode (SP, LP etc), highlight Dubbing then press Enter or Dubbing. Press Stop to interrupt the recording.

For DVD to VHS, put a blank tape in the VCR (make sure the protection tab has not been broken off) and the DVD to duplicate in the DVD tray and close the tray. Put the unit in DVD mode by pressing the DVD/VCR button. Find the point at which you want to start recording the DVD. Again press Dubbing and set up the recording mode and highlight Dubbing and press Enter or Dubbing.

Note that copyprotected content can not be recorded.

The manual for this recorder is on the right side of the page here: . See page 48 for the screen captures of setting the recording mode part of the dubbing procedure.

I hope this helps.

From my searches I don't think you will find it. Try going to and asking them directly for it. I can't see them saying no.
