Re: No sound but plays the dvd fine

I think this is due to wrong Audio settings.
Try to change audio setting as Stereo/Right or Left/5.1 from the Audio setup of the Menu

SOURCE: DVD Freezing / skipping

It almost has to be the discs. Try them in a friends unit.

I had a similar problem with DVD's I burned and had printed labels and put the label on the discs. It caused the disc to be out of balance. I peeled them all off (what a job) and the discs play fine now. I'm now a "magic marker" person... :)

SOURCE: RCA DVD player "No Disc"

Cleaning the eye CAN work, especially if every disc your trying is failing, and the discs work on another player. Some links from reputable sources:

After all that fails, it's probably time to change the DVD drive inside the player. Sometimes this is easy, sometimes not. :) I haven't been inside a 6300 but from looking at pictures, it's probably got a fully removable unit.

Of course, if you have a valid warranty, then when you're left with no solutions that don't void the warranty, you have to decide whether to try to pass it off to the warranty holder for repairs.

SOURCE: Problem hooking up DVD player to TV thru my cable box

Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.

The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.

The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.

One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.

If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!

Sound output reduced

There is a volume control on the Remote of your DVD player , increase the volume in that and it should solve. Additionally check the audio output cord of DVD player if it is intact and tightly fitted.

Have picture, no sound

I've had this trouble too. Not sure how to fix it, but I've found a work-around:

Remove DVD.
Insert Audio CD.
Wait for audio to play.
Remove audio CD.
Reinsert DVD.
Sound should work again.

If you power off the unit, you may have to try this procedure again.

No picture, only sounds when playing DVD


The issue might be that you could be missing some codes to play the dvds.

First i want to uninstall all the codecs from the control panel - add/remove programs.

Then download the latest vesion of klite codec pack with the player.

The link is :

Install this by selecting "lots of stuff" with the player.

Then play your DVD, it will work fine.

Good Luck.

Dvd sound isn't working

In addition to the suggestion which I fully concur with, there is one small thing I would add. Kari you may not be aware that there is often an "internal setting" in the dvd player for its output volume. Sometimes the setting is inadvertently changed to a permanently "muted" or silent mode so that no audio can be heard. This internal setting is usually accessed by pressing the "Setup" button on your remote control and browsing through the main menus to the "Audio" or "Sound Setting" submenu. Once there you will see if the settings are correct in order to HEAR AUDIO (sound that is). Be sure to turn the "MUTE" to "off" and set the output volume to about 3/4 high setting. Then get out of setup mode and play your dvd. My point is this...on some "kareoke" feature units I have found many people mistake the front manual volume control for a DVD audio output level control when playing dvd's. This is not the case..the output volume settings are "internal" and accessible through the remote control only. Hope this helps Kari !- hattonhall

Lost sound on DVD

I have a CH-DVD 300--not sure how different it is from the 200, but I have the same problem. Putting in an audio CD seems to do the trick, and is less hassle than unplugging (which also works for me).

Random no audio

I have had this happen with this particular brand frequently. I have it plugged in to a power "strip" or surge protector. I find that if I turn the strip off then on again, it resets and fixes the problem.
