Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

We have a Technika DVDR2005 DVD player and it is only playing the backround audio i.e. music etc but not the full sound with voices. We've tried all of the audio setting but it won't work! It's not the TV either because the sound on this is working perfectly. Thanks Rachael

    I have the same problem but can't set the audio to the correct setting unless want to hear it in foreign language settings ie can watch the wire in french but in english only hear background music. the problem only arises with pre recorded dvd's , my own recordings work fine so its seems only to be a problem if there is more than one language option
    any ideas before the player gets dumped?

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.

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!!!

Im only gettin backround music when i play my dvd and no actuall voice speech what is up with that?

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.

I had a similar problem.

I have a spectroniq dvd player, and for some reason we can not hear any voices from any dvd, we can hear everything else, like music sound effects, just no voices, what can i do to fix it?

It seems you have altered you audio downmix settings on the player. Go to the DVD player menu and alter the audio settings to default to any of the 2 speaker or 2.1 output settings. For example, Dolby 2.1 output.

Any output that utilizes the center channel (which the device is not equipped with), will not reproduce the voices.

I hope this helps.

Can someone give me the unlock region code for a Technika DVDR2005

1. Turn on player (with Standby button on player), without any disc in the drawer

2. When "No Disc" appears on screen, open the tray (I used the button on the player, don't know if that matters)

3. Press 0, 0, 8, 6, 0, 0, 0 on the remote, then press "Select" on the remote
(the last number is the region setting - 0 for multiregion, other numbers for that specific region) - a 0 should appear on the screen

4. Turn player off (without closing tray first) using the button on the player.

Now when you turn on the player, it will be multiregion.

hope it helps!

I have a Pioneer DV 585A DVD player that happily plays DVDs and the background sounds seems to be fine, but on some of the DVDs you can hear the voices of the characters speaking and then on another you...

Hi edwardm1,

If you are only hearing part of the audio from your DVD player, I would suggest you check your audio settings before seeking repairs.

Audio can be encoded to a DVD in several ways. If the audio on the disc is different than the settings on your DVD player, you may not hear all of the audio layers. For example, if your DVD is encoded in 5.1 Surround Sound, but your DVD player is set only to play basic Stereo, you may only hear portions of the audio.

Try accessing the menu on your DVD player, and look for the audio settings. If there is a higher setting available than is currently selected, try a higher audio setting. A higher setting should also be compatible with lower types of audio encoding.

If this does not improve your audio, or if you need help navigating your product menus, I would recommend giving Pioneer's toll-free support line a call at (800) 421-1404.

Thank you,
Go Ahead. Use Us.
