No dialog sound when watching DVD's

Our system is working just fine, except for when we rent DVD's or play someone elses burnt DVD..... the previews are fine, the back ground sounds and music are fine but when the actors start their dialog.....
there is no sounds what so ever...but you can still hear the back ground sounds....???
Why is it that the dialog is not working and all other sounds are? What do I do to fix this?

    I have the same issue.

    All the backgroud tracks will play, but not the dialogue track.

    And the "surround" answer offered to the initial question was not a solution, for me at least.

The problem is that your center channel is not functioning correctly.  Dialogue is typically routed to the center channel only in 5.1, so if you don't have a working center channel all you will get is sound FX and background sound.
Go through all your settings, verify that they are correct.  Verify that your center channel is working properly, and wired to the correct output.
Test the center channel speaker and I feel confident you will find something amiss.

The dialogue is probably set to come out of a center speaker. If this is the case your receiver needs to be set to 2 speakers. Your owner's manual should have some instructions on this in the set up section.

You have your speakers hooked up to the surround, try hooking them to the stereo left and right

I am not able to hear the dialog while playing DVDs. The background is great and comes through all 5 speakers, however, to be able to listen to the dialog, I have to switch over to 2-channel or Stereo. ...


Well let me first ask is the center chanel working? or properly hooked up. Cause most of the times when in 5.1 the talking or "dialog" as you put it comes only through the center channel its just kinda how they do it. Listen to see if the center channel is working. if you are unsure try hooking up a speaker that you know works into the center channel speaker output. If no sound comes out then the reciever possible has blown its center channel. Please follow up with a comment and i will be glad to assist you further thanks, Midwes-tek

On some dvds only some of the sound track is audible, but no dialog can be heard. Some dvds work fine, but on most rented dvds part of the sound is missing.


on the 5.1 mode, 5 speakers are needed to hear everything. You can usually go in the sound setup menu of the dvd and chooses 2.1 english version. Also, on some receiver, they can be set at 5.1 and actually all of the 5 speakers might not be actually hookup. You can change the ''surround'' mode of the receiver to stereo...

-bad disc reports


The problem with using rental discs is that they are dirty. Buy a dvd player cleaning disc and follow the instructions. These discs help to realign the laser. If this does not help try cleaning the disc with a disc cleaner. Also depending on how new the dvd is there have been a lot of discs manufactured outside of the US that have been bad. It may not be your machine but the discs. I personally went through 6 of the same movie before i gave up and rented something else that worked perfectly fine. Hope this helps you watch.
