I have an Olevia 537H TV from 2007. I would like to download the latest firmware for the unit in hopes it will correct my audio issue on NBC only whereby the music drowns out the people speaking. All other...


Before updating the firmware, you should know about the version of the firmware now running with your TV. Without knowing it, and updating the firmware; might cause the set to get irresponsive to any external commands. So beware before updating. After make sure about the firmware now running, check the site linked here to get latest firmware update to your TV. It will be best to contact any service technician in this case, I suggests.

Samsung BD-C5500C with latest firmware will not play audio track out on fiber optic to yamaha receiver when playing Avatar BR. Works on Avatar's main menu screen but stops once the movie is started. Same...


Hello,

I don't think this is a software update issue. Just as you said that the player has the latest firmware installed on it. Software update and latest firmware are the same thing.

I think this is a incompatibility issue. The disc is not 100% compatible with the player and that is why there is no audio via sound.

But one more thing you can try is to enter the player's menu, under settings, check audio settings. You can change the sound settings to mono, save settings and try again.

Good luck.

Rolling back firmware


Cardinal Rule ....1
NEVER update any FIRMWARE.....

Cardinal Rule ...2
if in doubt refer to rule 1

You CANNOT rollback firmwares once loaded, Firmwares are programs written within a CHIP inside the hardware.
You can rollback Drivers and update them also, but Firmwares are not of the same nature.

for example if you have a MP3 player that has a specific Firmware, the firmware is specifically programed to run that hardware(MP3 player), once you change the firmware the hardware will not be able to recognize the firmware and viceversa.

I ripped Bluray movies using "ANY DVD HD" to my hardrive then playing them through "WD TV Live HD Media Player" (using HDMI cable to Sony Bravia HD L.C.D.TV) some movies work good but others play the video...


Either check around in Any DVD HD or the BluRay menu to set audio output to PCM, which doesn't require any decoding to play back properly or you will have to convert them separately.

We have a sony bdp 300 DVD. We updated the firmware several months ago and all the movies worked fine. However, now it will play just fine during the previews but when we play the movie, there is no audio....


Hi

This certainly looks like a potential firmware issue especially if the Audio is there on the previews. There are reports also of recent firmware updates causing problems on some other Sony BDP units.

You might want to try a Blueray cleaning disk which you can purchase from any good Audio store first to ensure there is not a problem with dirt on the lens that may be causing this. Simply insert and play like a normal disk and it provides a cleansing action to the lens.

Otherwise my advice is to contact Sony directly to discuss the matter and find out if there have been any recent firmware issues.

The most recent update for your unit is firmware version 4.9 and this was released on 12th June 2009

The support phone number for Sony Blueray Players is 239-768-7547

Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Many Thanks.

Lost sound and audio after updating the firmware


I have the same loss of audio problem on my brand new 700. It went out briefly BEFORE I downloaded the firmware 3.32. It came back later, first with the second user setting, then it returned across the board. So I knew there was a little intermittent bug in there.

Now, with the Vers. 3.32 firmware downloaded, the sound never came back, and it seems that it is not coming back at all so far, and I've tried powering it off and on again several times with the 12v as well as the AC adaptor cord. Still looking for a secret menu on that.
