Re: I can't watch movie

Maybe it's a zone issue. try putting a different DVD from a local video store and see if it plays. Your device might be playing only a certain format.

For some reason, I get audio for the visually impaired when i play a DVD. The original sound of the DVD plays but an additional narrative (describing each scene) plays as well. The DVD is a recent...

Generally, remote controls for DVD systems have a button labeled "Audio". This button changes which audio track you will hear during the movie. Common tracks include English, French, Spanish, Commentaries, and occasionally Audio for the Hearing Impaired.

It seems odd for the latter audio track to be default, but clicking the Audio button until you have the plain English track should work. I would consult the manual if you have it on hand to see if your system is capable of remembering which track to start on.

Hope this helps.

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.

try using a CD cleaner disk..

How old is the system?
DO CDs work when you try them?
Put a disk in... remembering the position it was in..
Then try to play the disk...
Eject if it does not play and look to see if it has moved to a different position...
If not, there is a motor problem or the laser is not sensing the disk being there.

Have you ever opened up the main box of the system?
Has anyone else been inside it?

If yes, then maybe it is time to do it again to observe if there is movement of the laser pickup..

"DVD-AUDIO" is a specific type of ultra-high-end multichannel audio format that few people appreciate or understand enough to support in the commercial marketplace.

Movie DVD's are not "DVD-Audio". They are DVD's with audio of various formats. So don't sweat it if "DVD-Audio" is grayed out when you don't have a DVD-A disc inserted

Hi there! I was using my hts3357 for 2 years with no problem. Now i have one: when i insert DVD/CD, it can list the files (divx) in it, but doesn't play. On the other hand, when i copy the "same" movies...

I would try a disc cleaner and using a can of compressed air. be careful not to let the device receive any of the actual propellant by using small bursts of air. otherwise if u hold the nozzle down to long u could do damage to the device other than good. sometimes the eye is strong enough or not dirty enough to read just the file portion but not good enough to read the movie portion. It can read the Usb part due to the reader using the microchip part in the player not the eye of the dvd player. A usb port and a optical drive work entirely independant. usually if it won't read it means it is either the eye dirty or the eye is not working anymore. independant electronic / tv repair shops can replace the eye for approx. $50.00. But if the cleaner doesn't help letting the player read the movies again. Then I would suggest taking it to a shop and having the eye replaced or just do a "tune up" on it.

DVD's won't play

I have a somewhat similar problem, but wasn't after a cleaning disk use. Most of the time when I try to use this system now, after I put a DVD in, I start getting a loud buzzing noise (almost as if gears are meshing)

DVD Player Problems

Me three, same thing, reads 'no disc' or just won't play it. I have found that it happens more frequently on rental DVD's and that running a cleaner cd through several times helps but eventually that will even stop working. No idea what the problem is

Samsung dvd player ht-dm150 (watching movies)

It is most likely that the laser is not a problem because it can read the first part of the disk. If the laser is defective, it willn ot recognize the disk. The problem is probably the seek mechanism. It can only access the inner tracks but cannot read the tracks further from the center.
