Question about Philips 32PFL5403D/27 32 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

Music on DVDs is louder than the dialogue.

I bought a PHilips 32" flat screen LCD at Christmas. I have a Sony DVD player, which works great, and on my old TV, which was a Magnavox about 15 years old, no problems. However, on the new TV, when I play a DVD, what is supposed to be the background "mood music" is louder than the dialogue to the point we can't even watch the movies. If you turn it up to hear the people talking, the music drowns them completely out. Is this a settings issue, or do I need to return it to the store? If it's a settings issue, please LMK what to change, b/c we're clueless.
Thanks!

    The music is so loud that I can barely hear the actors. Is there a way to cut down the background music? It's enough to drive you up the wall. Can't enjoy Tv. Don't remember it being this bad with my old TV...you know the kind that were monstrance in size but at least you heard the dialogue.

In the Audio set up menu, see if there is a setting to turn off surround sound. I believe it's in your owners manual also. LMK

I have a 32" HD widescreen LCD TV/DVD combo. TDA03211c. When I put a dvd in to play it makes a noise and puts some digital garbage on the screen. Will not play dvds.


Sounds like the DVD player is defective. Just food for thought.. Try not invest in any make with a built in DVD player, they just don't last.

BRAND NEW 42in. vizio 1080 LCD HD 120HZ picture not clear


the tv models in store are usually have samples from blueray dvds. standard dvd players will look fuzzy because it only submits standard dvd picture quality. you can try an upvert dvd player. tho i cant promise picture quality. i have an xbox 360 that upverts the quality. if you get a bluray player i recommend hdmi wires. if you get upvert dvd player and it has an hd outlet red, blue, green wires it might work. i havent tried one myself. if you dont want to spend money on bluray dvds. i recommend an xbox console. it upverts dvds through hdmi or hd red, blue, green wires

Black and white grainy output to new samsung lcd


Your DVD player is using a PAL or NTSC variant which is not supported by your display. Somewhere hidden in the depths of the options in the DVD player should be an option to change the composite output type.
