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.

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.

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.
