Question about Zoltrix Zling U2 MP3 Player

Can hear sounds but no voices and Music garbled

Running XP Home with SP3 on a laptop with built in stereo speakers I find that I get garbled music and when playing Videos( .ts files from my PVR) the music sounds ok but the voices are extremely weak or totally missing.

My Audio output sounds as if I am listening to the surround sound from a 5.1 system but missing the centre speech channel although i dont know if that is the problem.

My (Acer) laptop is using Realtek HD and I have checked that the Speaker setup is for Laptop stereo speakers and not a 5.1 system.

These problems apply to Realplayer, VLC, Windows Media player and BBC iPlayer. and listening to streaming music online from Last.fm.

The problem began about the time I loaded Realplayer and BBC iPlayer but even though I have removed then the problems persist.

    I have this same problem with my Desktop Computer, Ive alwayz listened to music all the time on my computer, but lately when I play any type of music or videos I can hear the beats perfectly but the words sound garbled & scratchy as if there is to much bass n the voice volume is turned down.



    I thought it might be a virus so I performed a Full System Scan twice finding no problems, and I went thru my sound application in the control panel n it showed nuthin is wrong with my Windows XP.



    So I dont know what the problem can possibly be. ADVICE ANYONE?

I had this same problem and resolved it by unchecking the "karaoke" icon on my RealTek HD Audio Manager that I guess I accidentally checked the night before. To make sure that you don't have the karaoke turned on, double-click on the RealTek HD Audio Manager icon locationg in the bottom right corner. There is a karaoke icon on the top right of the window that pops up - make sure there is no "X" on the icon. If there is, click on the icon to get rid of it.

That did the trick for me, hope this helps.

Cheers

Try uninstalling your sound card through the device manager, you will get an option to delete the drivers, click no, reboot you pc and let it install automatically, this should solve the issue.

UBX Home Theater System


It sounds like a problem with your centre channel or speaker. The sound of Voices and on-screen, actions in the middle of the screen are played through the centre speaker. General sounds such as music in the background, off-screen events, etc. will be played through other speakers on a home theatre system. Check your connectors coming from your DVD player to your sound system. Are you using a single-cabled digital connector or one for every channel? Check your sound settings as well, i.e., Surround, AC3, Music, etc.

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

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.

No voice sound through speaker with DVD system, only music?


first check the settings on the audio menu of the dvd player. make sur it is set to 5.1 (if available) otherwise set it to stereo and your system should decode it.
assuming the second step is okay : as other dvd you play seem to work) it still may be that your unit is decoding stereo inputs just fine and 5.1 is not working properly....
so if adjusting audio settings in dvd play back menu dont work,
check that the cables to the satellite speakers are connected correctly and all plugged in soundly ( voice is high frequency,- coming from satellites - the garbled noises you hear are the base ( low freq) elements of voice which are coming from the bass box ( that the X.1 part of 5.1) and so that is obviously working. ,

No background music in games such is Battlefield 2, COD2


I would check what sound settings your individual games are running at. Sometimes when you have the sound set to something your speakers don't fully support (DTS, Dolby Digital, etc.) you'll get some sound and not others. This also happens when you try to push sound to a different number of speakers then you have (5.1 sound to 2.1 speakers, etc.)
