Question about LG 42PC5D Television

1 Answer

DVD's music and background but no talking

I put in a DVD and I get all the back ground noises, music etc. but I can't hear any of the people talking. The DVD works fine on other TVs just not the LG 42PC5D! I have checked all the settings on the TV and the DVD and the player and there is nothing unusual there. I'm pretty frustrated, did not spend this much money a nice TV to have to use a small portable tv to watch movies :(

Try adjusting the sound on the tv. If you go into the "user" audio options you can select between normal and True Surround SXT. That may work. Otherwise, try playing with your dvd player's options. The problem I'm having is the tv plays the sound before the picture.

Dvd player spoken dialog volume becomes difficult to hear over background sound

Some sets have a setting called "hall" which if engaged the background noise will be louder than people close up talking, I do not know what TV you are using but look at its options for audio and Hall etc first, its possible the player may have that or something like that also in its menu---by the way, have you confirmed this player has this issue on another set?

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.
Go Ahead. Use Us.
