I dont know what model and dvd brand you have but would like to assist you.
Go to dvd setup menu and check audio settings, make sure to set on stereo. Problem will be resolved.

I can hear music and background noises but no talking when I play a DVD.


Hi, What you are encountering is your receivers playback of a Dolby digital signal with out the proper amount of speakers attached. When using a 5.1 or higher system you must have at least 5 speakers connected. You need front left & right main speakers, then you need a center channel for the voices to play thru. then you want left & right rear speakers for the surround effect. It is possible though to do without these, you just switch the receivers sound field mode from theatre or movie to stereo. I hope this helps, write back to let us know if we did or if we can be of more help and thanks for choosing FixYa,good luck Prodzilla

The sound from my dvd player sounds like fast forwarded music.The voices are very light and sound funny...i have tried changing cables but doesn't work..can u help please...


Start over with some model details. Find the manual for the DVD player and then see what would possibly change the character of its playback. Define 'funny'. Are we talking about audio files or pre-recorded DVD's?

Some DVD's sound fine whilst others have background sounds but no voices. I do have an old model TV that has mono sound.Would that cause it?

Hi,
I wrote a short article for someone who had a similar problem a few days ago.
I will edit it for you so that it fits. Here it is.
Your DVD player should have output connectors in the back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO (or MIXED ) Output Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo(or MIXED) then the dialog will be sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel speaker you will not hear it. Thus no dialog.
NOTE: In your case for the TV that is mono, here is the solution.
1 Connect a stereo pair of RCA cables (red and white "male" connectors at each end) to the Mixed or Stereo Output of the DVD player (NOT ANY SURROUND OUTPUTS).
2 Purchase an RCA type "Y" connector that has 2 female to a single male connectors on it. Walmart about 3 dollars.
3 Plug the single male plug of the Y connector into the back of the TV set's single mono audio input.
4 Connect the stereo RCA pair from the MIXED output of the DVD player into the Y connector that is now on the back of yourTV.
5 Run your yellow Video output from the DVD into the Back of the Set's yellow input.
That should do it. The sound should be clear and correct with dialog, effects and music.
Hope this helps,
Best,
Mark

Background music is loud but voices are barely audible when watching a DVD through the receiver. The cable through the receiver works normal. Please help!!!


The natual dolby digital is meant to be listened to loud.
There is a setup feature on the receiver called ATT (for attenuation). Set this to medium or high. This is a general answer - not specific to your model. You may have to do it through a setup menu or some receivers have an ATT button on the remote.

Im having a problem with my kenwood VR-7070 receiver.I have my DVD player hood up to it using an optical cable and s-video. The sound comes in digital sounds amazing but the souround sound music is so much...


No unfortunately this is the way movies are made. I know what you are feeling it is the most annoying thing ever. The only thing you can do is turn down all the surround speakers and turn up your center channel. the voices and talking are always output through the center channel. So you have to do a lot of messing around to get the best settings for you. I am an audiophile and I will never understand why they make the background sound/music in some scenes so much louder then any talking. Hope this helps if you have any other questions please let me know.
Thanks,
Lee

Playing a dvd...getting music and background sound, but no voices...help!


Go into the receivers "main menu" check your "center channel settings" if you don't have a center channel, make sure it's set to "off or no" If you have one, make sure it's on. If you still have an issue, post a comment and I will help you troubleshoot further. Hope this helps.

I have a 50 incch samsung tv with samsung surrond sound/receiver/dvd player. I have no voices when we play a dvd but the music plays what is wrong


You need to have the audio from the DVD player hooked up to the same input path on the receiver.(if your running video thru the receiver) DVD audio should be hooked up to either an analog input (RCA cables) or Digital input like Digital Coaxial or Optical. Next to where you are plugging in these cables will be writing like "DVD optical" or "DVD digital". Then, make sure you switch the input of the receiver to "DVD" then it should work fine. If you still have problems post a comment and I will help some more. Hope this helps
