While watching movies, the phone mode comes on and the sound is reduced to nothing. How do I turn this mode off?

Remove the power plug and keep aside for few hours. It must reset the processor to keep the mode from coming back. If there is a reset setting mentioned for the processor on the manual please reset accordingly.
If this wont work there is problems on the memory within which seems to trigger the mode.

How to watch Blu-ray movie on your HDTV

Blu-ray movies always provide people with outstanding visual and aural experiences, so you can imagine how wonderful it is to watch BD movies on your widescreen HDTV with your families sitting on the couch comfortably in your living room. Roughly, the ways people used to watching Blu-ray movies are various, and the straightest method is connecting a Blu-ray disc player to a HDTV for playback. However, People also have other solutions even though they have no Blu-ray player, including using an Iomega hard disk media player or a WDTV Media player, Popcorn Hour, Xbox 360, or other media players or devices as a medium, or using an external hard drive to store the BD files and then connect it to HDTV to watch the movies, or using the HDMI port or an S-Video cable to watch videos from PC to HDTV, etc.

Since Blu-ray movies have strict copy protections (AACS, BD+, region code), as well as these intermediates have their requested video formats, for example, some supports mpeg4, divx, and xvid, some supports AVI or WMV, and some supports MKV or others. It is essential to remove BD protections and rip Blu-ray to an appropriate format for playback on HDTV through these in-between devices. You may ask: "what is your method to do format conversion?" Well, the following paragraphs will shed some light on this question.

Software you will need:
Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper
To find a step-by-step instruction in the following:
Step 1: Install and launch this program, and afterwards you can click "DVD Rom", "DVD Folder" or "IFO/ISO" icon to load your Blu-ray files.

Step 2: Select subtitle and audio track
Click on the pull down menu of "Subtitle", then all the subtitles in the BD movie will be listed out, including language and subtitle ID, you can select one according to your own needs.
Click the drop-down list of "Audio", and then all the info about audio tracks are shown clearly, including language, audio codec(turehd and dts master audio are both supported as well), stream ID, and audio channel, you can choose whatever you like to do conversion.

Step 3: Select output format
Click on the drop down menu of "Format" to select output format. Which one to choose is depending on the compatible formats of your media players or devices that you used to transfer BD files to your HDTV. For instance, if your player is capable of playback .m2ts files, you can choose "Copy"- "Directly Copy", and this option will keep the original quality of your BD content to full extent. If your device allows HD playback, and supports h.264 mp4 format, and then this one would be the correct selection for you. The rest can be done in the same manner.
Directly Copy:
H.264 HD Video .mp4:
Step 4: Set advanced settings
Please notice that this step is unavailable if you have chosen "Directly Copy" in Step 3. Click on "Settings" button, and then you will be able to adjust audio and video parameters including codec, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, and audio channels in the popup window as below. 5.1 channels are supported to keep the stunning surround sound of the BD movie.

Step 5: Click "Convert" button to start BD ripping
Once finished, the output files can be found out via clicking on "Open" button effortlessly, and then you can use your own ways to watch Blu-ray movies on your HDTV, such as connecting your PC to your HDTV via S-Video or HDMI cables, or adding them to your media players for playback on the HDTV, or whatever. Just Enjoy it.

Every once in a while the sound goes out and comes back if i watch a movie or regular tv how do i fixit

Most recievers had setting for TV/Stereo/CD/ DVD

Also the various sound settings, such as Concert / Hall / Dolby etc...

Assuming your wires are all hooked up correctly and reverse polarity (popping noise heard) is not the problem. I doubt that you need to resolder any connections inside the reciever or speakers. (That may be a problem, but not likely in this situation)

What may be happening here is that some things are simply not recorded in surround... Then it will sound just like you've described. sound going in and out. Sometimes the engineer skipped a track, you know, left for lunch and when he came back, didnt start back where he finished before he left...

However, lets say for example your watching a TV movie of the week, and those speakers may appear to be working while the movie is on but not during a commercial, since most commercials are not recorded in Full Surround Sound... this is normal.

However, if happening during the Movie, from scene to scene, also possibly a normal thing if the sound engineer had nothing to add for background noise, ie; rustling leaves, creaking floorboard etc...

Sometimes you may hear background sound out of a left speaker and not the right, (or vis'a-vers'a) this is of course due to placement of object or subject of background noise... if Any

9 times out of 10, it may not be your system at all. If your watching a DVD and this is happening, you could make a note of when and where and try another copy to see if this system can be replicated at this same location. You may be able to use a CD and find out also.

Hopefully you'll find some help in this.

I have a Verizon FIOS DVR connected to the Samsung receiver. After watching TV for a period of about 30 minutes or so I start to get a delay in the volume coming out of the speakers compared to the picture...

common problem, trouble is that the receiver cant keep up with the dvr box. try this, dont use audio from your dvr into your reciever, take the audio out from the tv, and go into the receiver, now the sound is after the picture and should catch up with itself.

The back speakers do not work when I watch regular television, only when I watch a movie on the blu-ray or listen to music. How can I fix this?

if you are not watching tv in hd or the show is not recorded in surround then you will not get any sound from them. if this is not the case you can try a simple optical cable run from the tv to the reciever. This cable is about 50 bucks and has awesome quality. Hope this helps.

When watching a DVD in surround sound movie mode

FIRST- double check that the center channel is hooked up in the center channel connection. we have all made this mistake. second if you are watching a movie through a dvd or bluray player be sure that both your audio L/R rca's or hdmi cable's are plugged in. I do not know if your are on cable or satellite? Double check the connections. Be sure that the that if your can select your sound preference turn it to 5.1 surround or matrix. hope this helps

I have an LG LED TV and Samsung 5.1 Surround sound and when it comes to Blu Ray movies I get sound, but I don't get the surround sound through cable or XBOX 360, the only time I do is through the TV when...

the very best and easiest solution is have every input into your tv, and your TVs audio out (RCA/Optical) into your reciever. this is a variable audio (Meaning you can only listen to your reciever with your TVs audio up) or you can turn off the audio completely in your TVs soiund properties.

hope that helped :) -Jordon

The issue might be that you have to send the LHT854 Back to the manufacturers and have the playback feature replaced. The playback feature is controlled by a device that is internal and very important to the overall function of the unit.

If its way up front and you get no sound from the D/A converter then thats where your problem is. Sorry couldnt help ya more.. good Luck
