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

Portable DVD PLAYER: I don't get any audio. I'm batteried-up, plugged in, volume high, remote working, picture good -- just no audio. Any suggestions:


Maybe it has a failure in the audio amplifier, if there's no sound even with headphones or the internal speakers, if there's audio only with headphones.

Where can I purchase the Audio Video Connection for my dvd player I want to hook it up to my TV but can't find the correct cable Thank you Sandy


For the COBY TF-DVD7500, the video is carried on a single RCA plug cable. You can make due with a composite video cable (with three RCA plugs on each end) or get an RCA cable. The audio output can either be digital audio (which uses a special coax cable) or a headphone connector (analog audio).I believe the headphone jack is a 3.5 mm connector. If you use a composite video cable to your TV, you can connect the red and white plugs to an adapter (3.5 mm M to 2 RCA F). Then the TV speakers will get the audio track; otherwise you can use the DVD player speakers or the digital audio out.

I hope this helps.

Not enough volume forget about using it in the car---impossible. Can anything be done to improve


I assume you're listening without headphones since I think those would be loud enough. If you don't want to use headphones, purchase a speaker case to connect to the player. It will amplify the sound. We also use it to listen to shows on the computer. This is the one we have http://www.amazon.com/CD-Case-with-Built-in-Speakers/dp/B0009824MK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1256616442&sr=8-2
