Re: No Sound when playing DVD / VCD
Hi Sir, The problem is with the codec that is require to play sound.You can resolve this by playing your DVD in another player like VLC media player or you will have to install the latest codec pack which supports major Audio and Video formats.
Following are the links to download both the VLC media player and K-Lite mega codec pack- Download any one of them and install on your system.I am pretty sure this will resolve your problem.

Many DVD players are preset to one region and if you use a DVD destined for any other region, the player will refuse to play. Some players have the option to change this to universal mode. Check your player's manual if yours has this facility.
Yes. You can play VCD movies and and Audio CDs on most players.
Please try to check sound level by Amp mode and it can be change by remote. like Dolby Pro-Logic, DTS surround etc etc.
Normaly dvd has low sound level as compare to vcd, so i think its normal with your home theater system.
GeorgeHavem- Have you played the same format on your dvd before,cause if not it sounds like your dvd will not accept the format.If your unit plays regular dvd,then it sounds like a format problem,let me know. cooltekFeb.18/08
dvd are up to 6 times the density of a cd there making the laser eye read much closer rings on the disks. so in other words its having a hard time reading dvd.
the only thing you can do is take a cotton swap dipped in alcohol and open the tray look with a flashlight for a small optical eye in exact center of dvd player and rub lightly on it to remove dust build up or spray some canned air into the dvd youll hit it. try it again and if no sound again the computer cant keep up with the dvd or vise versa.
Try a lens cleaner cd, as when the lens gets misaligned or if it's quite old, it will find it harder to read a DVD as the tracks are much closer together than that of a VCD as they are cd's and their tracks are wider apart and easier to read.
