This is gong to sound lame because I don't know the answer but I can point you in the right direction. The same thing happened when I got my new TV, but that was years ago. If you have you TV set to broadcast in surround sound, it sends the talking to a "fifth" speaker in the middle of the room. The background sounds, like thunder and gunshots, are sent to the speakers that project out into the room, so it sounds like the background sound is all around you. HOWEVER if you do not have a surround-sound speaker system, there is no fifth speaker for the voices to go to. Now, i don't remember what the settings are called, but I'll bet if you call the store where you got your tv they can tell you.

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.

When i put a cd in i hear the sound but when i put a movie in i cant hear the sound


You're probably missing a codec.
get VLC Media player (free on the web) and play the movie with that.
I'll almost guarantee that VLC will play the movie properly.

I can't hear people talking when i watch a movie?


I had the same problem and found that there was a connection problem with the center speaker. Do a sound check on all speakers and see if the sound is coming out of the center one. If not then just check you have connected it properly.

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.

Dvd player not showing color


you are only having porblem with your color system. if you are using a multi system DVD player then see if it is properly selected to your region. in USA it should be NTSC 3.59, if you're in Europe it should be PAL. if you're using your DVD via a DSP or audio systems, check also the color system of the amplifier, it should be adjusted to your color system.

Can not get a picture


Hi all

I had a similar problem with Coby dvd 7500 the screen was faint almost black but could hear the movie sound. I cleaned the lens as suggested but it didnt resolve the problem.

I tired to rest the player by removing the power supply cord and the battery for 30 mins as suggested in the manual but that also didnt work. What I did was left the player without battery and the power cord overnight and it did start working in the morning!!

This worked for me and hope works for you guys too...though I cant explain the reason as am novice myself. But give it a try as it really worked for me.

All the best.

Cheers
