I am having trouble playing videos on this machine. While the picture sorts itself out with the primitive auto tracking (eventually) The sound is barely audible no matter how high I put the TV's volume control, and there is no volume control on the video machine or it's remote. It is playing videos, but the sound may as well be mute.

I often lose sound but retain video after playing about with things in the back, it always turns out to be a loose scart. Try pushing it in andd, if that does not work, substituting it with a different one.
If you are playing through the VCR because you only have on scart socket on your tv you can always get a multi scart adaptor from radioshack / argos / maplin etc
Get the sound back on the TV. Then check what source you have selected. Look at the back of the TV, and make sure that you have connected the video from the DVD player to the video input for that source.
You know some dvd /tv's need a ' s video plug '.
With out it you will get sound but no picture.
Take a look at back of your dvd player/tv for a plug in called s video.
Try it. Hopefully it works and solve your problem. It's great if i helped you. :)
Its probably the update. Samsung has had a history of pushing updates then having to send a new one to fix the last one. Sites like AVS forums are full of good info. If there's alot of people having the same issue it helps you identify the culprit. In these situations there's only 2 possible culprits the update or the player itself. If its still under warranty take it back and confirm its the update. Or, wait for the fix.
Have you changed the connections recently? If so, maybe something got plugged back in differently.
Otherwise check the AVR-2807's System Setup. There is a menu to associate different video inputs to each of the audio inputs. Probably the input with sound doesn't have the right video input associated with it, though I'm not sure you can associate a video input with the CD input... which tells me maybe the connections got changed?
Have you checked the unit on another input or another set to eleminate the video input? also try the video cable. If theres sound and no video and you tryed then the video output amp in the player has a problem and the only way to fix this would be with a schematic and a scope to trace out the video signal. Good luck
if the dvd played sound but not the video then its not the laser pickup assy for sure. if the vcr had a oicture then that means all your cables are connected correctly. Now what it sounds likje is the video switcher IC in the controller circuit or in the dvd circuit the D to A converter went south. The only way to troubl;e shoot this would be to get a service manual/schematic and a scope to trace where you lose your video. im sure you dont wanna spend 4oo bucks or more for a scope so maybe just maybe it may be worth for a reoair oerson to diagnoise the unit. Its all up to you. Good Luck
