I have a proluxe CE 818 dvd player which will not play the sound for the main characters. All background sound is there. Some cartoon dvd's play ok. I'm a bit puzzled....
Have gone thru the menu but cannot change anything that will make a difference.
Many thanks for your help.
Go into the setup menu into the audio options (use arrows on remote to go up and down menu and press left to enter the next menu to change options). By memory when I was running this just through a TV and not through a surround sound system, I had to turn off the addition speaker options in the audio menu. The one's like centre speaker etc have an small/large/off option. I had to turn these off so that all sound would come through the TV speaker only. That is about all I remember as I was trying to get this running for my aunt and I no longer have the DVD player.
I had same problem, I did as drewbar suggested above. My settings are: bass - off; front speakers - large; Center speakers - none; surrour speakers - none; sub-woofer - none; test tones - off; center speaker delay - no delay; surround speaker delay - no delay; digital output - off. Got sound!

You are listening to a Dolby Digital source and you either don't have a center speaker hooked up or, it's not enabled. If you only have 2 speakers connected to a surround receiver, switch your receiver from surround to surround off. If this doesn't work, or you need more help, specify your system and how it's all hooked up.
If you are only hearing part of the audio from your DVD player, I would suggest you check your audio settings before seeking repairs.
Audio can be encoded to a DVD in several ways. If the audio on the disc is different than the settings on your DVD player, you may not hear all of the audio layers. For example, if your DVD is encoded in 5.1 Surround Sound, but your DVD player is set only to play basic Stereo, you may only hear portions of the audio.
Try accessing the menu on your DVD player, and look for the audio settings. If there is a higher setting available than is currently selected, try a higher audio setting. A higher setting should also be compatible with lower types of audio encoding.
If this does not improve your audio, or if you need help navigating your product menus, I would recommend giving Pioneer's toll-free support line a call at (800) 421-1404.
