Question about JVC TH-M505 System

1 Answer

No sound The strangest thing happened. I tried to play a DVD movie and all I could here was the music and background sounds. When actors spoke, I could not hear them. However, could still hear the music and background sounds. Was working fine. Tried multiple DVD's, in different disc slots, at various movie stages, and the same thing happened. Any ideas? Changed nothing on the DVD player b4 this happened.

    I checked all you listed. Come to find out that the kids were pusing buttons on the remote and DVD player. Thus changing the surround sound. Could not believe it. All the time wasted. So, if you have kids, don't doubt the system and check things the kids can get into. Also, don't expect them to say anything about what they did. This will only frustrate you and send you down the wrong path. We have a ghost in the house. His name is "Not Me...". Oh, even in this high tech world, kids seem to always find the most vulnerable spots. Even when we parents are still trying to figure out all this high tech stuff and gadgets. What does the future hold for my grandkids? Scares me to think about what future gadgets they can get into. What ever happened to the PBJ stuffed in the eight track player? Thanks for the response.

Sounds to me like your center speaker is either not connected, or somehow not working. The not working part could be explained by a failed speaker or, possibly a failed amp in the unit.

I have problems with the audio of movies for Region 2 DVD's. I do not have any problems with TV Series, just movies. I can hear the background music, etc. but not what the actors are saying.

Check the sound settings of the player. It might be that you have the wrong sound settings for playing back DVD's. If you use a surround system, check the centre channels settings.

Gateway dx4840-11e. During video can hear music but not actor voices. What to do?

do you have the sound set to surrond sound? What it sounds like is that it is trying to play through surrond speakers but you dont have them, which is why you can hear the music and not the actors voices. click with the right mouse button on the speaker in the bottom right of your screen, then click on sounds , now click on the playback tab in the sound window, click on the sound device shown and then click configure, choose stereo and choose two speakers. Continue to the end then try to play the video and see if you can now hear the voices. If you cant then you maybe missing codecs needed to play the audio correctly. Please state if this is a movie you have downloaded or a dvd film on disc etc

No English language on DVD 's

Bought a new unit. The old unit was a surround sound system in which the previous owner removed the speakers. I wasn't aware of the problem but found out that it would not allow it to play on Dolby 5.1...It would only play DVD's on channel 2, therefore no english etc. Thanks for your help!!!

Sound and background music and noise is fine

This usually happens on home burnt DVD's

It is the format in which it was recorded that is at fault.
There is little you could do but re-encode the whole thing before you burn it.

Turn off or try the different surround options whilst it is playing.

If it does this with commecial DVD's then you may have set the surround setting by accident to somthing else.
