Sometimes it works, but independable of DVD palyer, more linked to time (eg friday evening it never works). very strange, sony has no solution, player is 2,5 years old and no warrenty.
Does anyone have a solution?

Re: no dvd sound

How do you have the DVD player connected - component cables, s-video cable?

It sounds like the DVD player is trying to use an output port for audio that you aren't using, but defaults to a different port for CDs - the one you are using. There should be audio output options in the DVD player menus - I'd suggest trying each of them and seeing if any help. I'm not familiar enough with that particular model to say exactly how to get to those menus.

Also, the research I have done on this system basically says the DVD player stinks, and is prone to a number of problems. You might want to see if you can borrow a DVD player from someone else (assuming you don't have another) and hook it up in the system. At the very least, this should confirm whether it's the DVD player or the sound system that is the problem. If it's the DVD player, you should be able to get a decent replacement rather cheaply. I've always had luck with Apex, and they're generally quite affordable.

Re: no dvd sound

I am 80% sure that your cables are busted.. try buying new RCA cables..
check if the vents are blocked.. maybe something overheated and something got busted...

is it a burned disk? if so your dvd player might not be able to play that type of dvd... i know sometimes also scratched ones won't play at all as well... of course also make sure everything is plugged in correctly and if it does this with more different dvds then there's something wrong with the player itself... which i hope is not the case as those are very difficult to fix yourself

I believe I have the solution....but it depends on your dvd player's zuxilarily capabilities. Do you have a second set of OUTPUT plugs that are colored Red and White on the back of the TV? Do you have a separate Red and White INPUT plugs on the back of the dvd? The TV must use the speakers in the DVD system by pushing the sound OUT. You cannot accomplish this if the dvd is only pluged into the INPUT of the tv.
\Another option is o make sure your DVD player has a "auxilary" or separate input channel on the console or remote.
I have a DVD home theatre system as well, not the same brand, but that shouldn't make a difference . Its a matter of how the sound is received.

Hope that helped.

When playing DVD no sound but VCD sound OK.

dvd are up to 6 times the density of a cd there making the laser eye read much closer rings on the disks. so in other words its having a hard time reading dvd. the only thing you can do is take a cotton swap dipped in alcohol and open the tray look with a flashlight for a small optical eye in exact center of dvd player and rub lightly on it to remove dust build up or spray some canned air into the dvd youll hit it. try it again and if no sound again the computer cant keep up with the dvd or vise versa.

DVDs & CDs will not play

If you are playing STANDARD CD or regular DVD that you have purchase and you are having this problem,your dvd player is malfunction;however,if you are playing DVD burner disc or a different dvd region disc(we are region 1 in U.S.) that is no going to work.Same thing for your CD burner disc,it might not work.
If you are using a rental dvd disc,check and see if there is scratches?If so,try to get one without that many scratches!
