Re: sound echo

I found that the best way to avoid this problem is to mute the television speakers or, if you can, turn off the speakers. There seems to be a very brief delay between TV and theater speakers, causing what sounds like an echo. hope this helps.

Re: sound echo

If you have the DVD going through your stereo to produce better sound, you could be getting an echo effect by also having the volume on your TV turned up. So a possible solution if this is the case, is to simply turn the tv volume down so that the only sound you are hearing is coming from the stereo.

What am i doing wrong i have picture soundduring promotional parts at beginning of dvd but know sound/voices

moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngmoz-screenshot-2.pngYou need to change the surround sound settings. This is on page 29-30 in the instruction manual that comes with the sysyem. You can download a copy in pdf format here:

Basically do this:

1. Play the dvd.
2. Select Audio mode on the remote control
3. Hit the "Surround" button repeatedly until you hear all the sounds you expect to hear.
Go slow inbetween hitting the button to make sure the sound is playing.

Have just installed a samsung home theatre HT C5900 have set up speakers according to manual, but when we play a dvd it sounds as though the talking is echoing a bit. It is not crisp and clear. Thank you

The echo could be caused by something called latency. On some systems you can adjust this. It allows you to increase or decrease the speed the sound comes through the speakers, based on how far from your ears they are placed.

Sony Bravia THEATER DAV-IS10 echo problem.

It's probably a user setting problem.

You don't say if you're listening to native multichannel soundtracks as intended (AFD Direct) or if you're manipulating them with one of the simulated soundfields. Simulations only go so far toward reality and they always insert artifacts.

Take a look at the Troubleshooting section in the manual. Voice tracks are mostly center-channel related.

No voice sound through speaker with DVD system, only music?

first check the settings on the audio menu of the dvd player. make sur it is set to 5.1 (if available) otherwise set it to stereo and your system should decode it.
assuming the second step is okay : as other dvd you play seem to work) it still may be that your unit is decoding stereo inputs just fine and 5.1 is not working properly....
so if adjusting audio settings in dvd play back menu dont work,
check that the cables to the satellite speakers are connected correctly and all plugged in soundly ( voice is high frequency,- coming from satellites - the garbled noises you hear are the base ( low freq) elements of voice which are coming from the bass box ( that the X.1 part of 5.1) and so that is obviously working. ,

Not playing voice but playing music/surround

sounds like you may have a dodgy scart lead.check that none of the pins are loose/damaged. Also check the sound settings on the tv, it may have reset itself to the default sound setting. Or it might just be the audio settings on your dvd player have been adjusted,almost all dvd movies have there own audio adjustments.

Sound 'changes' when using different input sources

try to check the auidio setting on the dvd itself. make sure it is set to 6.1. I think it is set for 2.1..change the setting and you will be just fine. good luck
