Question about LGDVT418 System

1 Answer

LGDVT418 I cannot change the Bypass audio mode while watching a dvd. I don't hear people's voices but I hear cars, things, sounds, etc. It drives me crazy. I don't want to spend $500 for a new audio system. Please help!

    hi !!

    i have had my lgdvt418 for about four years. when i moved in july i started experiencing the same problems with my system. i can play cd's , t.v. audio , and the radio with no problems!! but when i play dvd's i can only hear the back ground sounds and narrative??

    i have been through the entire manual but have had no success. i am totally frustrated because i like the system. if i can't find any answers i will take it in locally and hope that it can be repaired. my e- mail address is if you have any suggestions. i'm glad that i'm not the only one with this issue

"DVD-AUDIO" is a specific type of ultra-high-end multichannel audio format that few people appreciate or understand enough to support in the commercial marketplace.

Movie DVD's are not "DVD-Audio". They are DVD's with audio of various formats. So don't sweat it if "DVD-Audio" is grayed out when you don't have a DVD-A disc inserted

Hi Rachael, I dont know anything about your DVD player itself but from what you have said assuming you have a stereo TV and you can only hear music etc from both channels in a movie then you MIGHT have it set for 5.1??, which means instead of everything coming out of the L+R the VOICES and music etc are being sent to the CENTRE CHANNEL and the other channels.

As I dont know that model, all I can say is try menu or options etc and go to audio and change the output for stereo. (You said you tried AUDIO but I am assuming you mean the audio button on the remote which changes between the audio versions on the DVD Disc.)

or maybe try checking the cables, what ones are you using? Scart? Composite? maybe the audio cables have been plugged into the wrong sockets on the DVD player if it has multiple outputs on it?

I dont know what else to say... But the above 2 options are worth trying. I hope you get it sorted OK :) Bye.

DVD's won't play

I have a somewhat similar problem, but wasn't after a cleaning disk use. Most of the time when I try to use this system now, after I put a DVD in, I start getting a loud buzzing noise (almost as if gears are meshing)

Can't hear voice/some audio

your audio setting is set to 5.1 and your do not have enough speakers to hear all the sounds. I suggest to change the setting to 2 speakers and you will be able to hear everything. good luck
