Dvd audio player volume too erratic

We have a low end magnavox dvd player MWD220F connected to a Maxent 42'' plasma monitor. The sound between the voice and the music on a dvd movie is overwhelming. to hear the voice we have to turn the TV volume way up, but when there is music it blasts us out. Is it the DVD player or what?

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.

SOURCE: no sound thru dvd player, but fine for tv and vcr

Just had the same problem and it is fixed for me. With NO DISC in the player go to the System Menu. Next Navigate to Preferences on the top of the screen.

You will set an option titled "Default". Select that and it seems to reset the player to default settings and fixes the sound.|

SOURCE: Can't hear the voices when I play a DVD, only the music

WE'VE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM SINCE WE MOVED AND DISCONNNED THE SPEAKERS?
IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE SURROUND SOUND WAS NOT HOOKED UP? AND THIS COU\LD CAUSE THE PROBLEM?

SOURCE: Can't hear sound on Windows Mediaplayer from DVD I recorded

I've been pondering this one for a day or so - at least two possibilities:
1) There is a mute/audio-off hotbutton inside Windows Media Player itself - click on it and see if the audio works. Alternatively, you can try playing a music file in Windows Media Player to see if THAT file has sound.
2) You need a better Codec - the free version of the K-Lite Codec has limited audio support. There are no easy answers to this problem. I frequently use my computer for converting VHS's to DVD, so I finally plunked down the $50 to purchase Nero 9 and all of its codecs. Before that, however, I used VLC Media Player (free) - it has DVD/VOB audio support.

As a side note, if you wanted to use your computer to convert the VHS's to DVD, you would need a plain-old VCR, a red/white/yellow cable, a DVD burner, and a product called the Dazzle DVD Recorder from Pinnacle. You can hook the VCR straight to your computer and burn away. To get the best experience however, I would also get a program like Nero, Roxio, etc. to do the actual DVD burning (although the Dazzle's native software is perfectly capable of doing the job).

Good luck!

No sound with dvd connection


Check connections for loose contacts, and whether the audio in has been selected to connect the RC cables, and whether the output selected at DVD end is correct. Check for jammed buttons of volume or mute on remotes of both.

Maxent MX42X3 42" plasma Monitor..


Are you sure that its the main A/Vboard coz it sounds like the main power supply issue to me. Anyways the mainboard is the large board usually located at the center of the tv. If you can remove the back cover of the tv and get me a high res picture of the tv I can mark the board for you.

Maxent plasma tv mx-42hpt52 when switch on everything works well for about 5min then volume goes to max on its own and other fuctions stops working.


You need to have your main board replaced. It's unfortunate but even low voltage boards go bad. Try locating a Maxent website and email them to see where you can get parts from.

Is there any way to connect basic cable to the tv without using a converter box or anything else


Recently, I dropped HBO with my cable company and there dont have a box. Since the Maxent 42 is only a monitor and doesnot have a tuner...there is no where to plug cable from the wall to the tv.
Solution...plug cable from wall to VCR/DVD and then use RCA cables (Red,White and Yellow cables) from output from VCR/DVD. works great.
