JVC DVD player plays with distorted sound

My DVD player has started to distort the sound. I've tried several discs both old and brand new. It's not a disc problem. It muffles the sound and acts almost as if it's on a slower speed. The picture is fine, just the sound is distorted. The odd thing is that it was sudden. One night it was doing just fine and the next, using the same DVD that was left in the player, it started to distort the sound.

Re: JVC DVD player plays with distorted sound

Do you run your volume flat out? If you do then perhaps you've damaged the cones in your speakers. Some of these 5.1 speaker systems are utter rubbish. They look nice but the speakers are often garbage. Also running speakers at high volume for lengthy periods can overheat the coils and distort the cones.

Jvc dvd/vcr player records from vcr to dvd but only plays back the dvd on the jvc DR-MV79 won't play on any other dvd players

Have you finalized the DVD in question? Unfinalized discs usually won't play in other machines. Is the DVD type compatible with the other dvd players? (Some may not handle DVD+R for example; it is an acceptable disc for the jvc DR-MV79.) Try a different brand and type of DVD. Check your other players supported discs.

To Finalize the disc, Menu > Setup > Disc Setting > Finalize (if needed set Disc Protection to Off).

I hope this helps.

Distorted audio on my surround sound

If it does it with just the one disc it is probably the file that you burned. Does the file sound ok on the computer? Sometimes files that are downloaded have bad audio tracks and I have seen cases where the encoding software that you are using messes up the file when it is modifying the file.
Try another DVD or Blu-Ray disc and see if it still distorts. If it does then it may be a setting in the player or in the receiver.
