The main speakers don't work. Headphone jacks work but if you unplug the headphones there is no sound

Make sure that you don't have mute on, and make sure your TV speakers are turn on. Go to menu and see if there is a way to turn your internal speakers on. If you can't fine anything , then your audio processor could be locked up, and if you unplug your TV for 30 MIN. it will reset the processor back to normal. Good luck and have a nice Day. If all that don't work, then your headphone might not be closing when removing the jack.

The speakers are very staticky. Is there anything

Hi , this is a common problem with this type of dvd player it starts happening after it has been used for a while the problem is actually with the speakers they tend to start getting this problem after regular use.
Their isnt an easy fix for this problem the only wat to solve this problem is to get the speakers replaced if you take it to repair shop they will do this for you.
On your model if you have a setup menu you can enter the sound options and turn down the bass and treble a bit doing this might reduce the crackle but it wont be long term fix.
sorry their is know easy fix for this.
Do you get this sound whilst using head phones or just the internal speakers if you get the crackling noise through headphones also then the chances are the lense needs replacing if you have tried a good lense cleaner then replacing parts is the only way to solve the problem your having.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Volume is not working

get a splitter that allows you to plug 2 sets of headphones in the portable dvd player.

The sound is the only place were this machine falls short. The sound is okay at best with the built in speakers, but any background noise makes it nearly impossible to hear anything from them even with the volume all the way up. Not surprising since due to the size of the player the speakers are only a little bigger then headphone speakers, but with headphones or portable plug-in speakers the sound is superb. Besides the sound the only 2 complaints are that you can not control the volume with the remote and that the power switch is too easily turned on by accident (do not travel with the battery attached or you will find you have no charge when it comes time to watch a movie). The battery lasts 3.5 to 4 hours, long enough for 2 short movies or 1 long one.

also checkout The volume button is on the right side of the uint.
, headphones are a must, or get a device to play the audio through your car stereo ($15-$25). The player has the option to either input or output the A/V so you could play video games on the run or you could hook up a VCR and watch creative

Sound works thru the wireless headphones, but not thru speakers?

go over all speaker connections and ensure they are good and also plugged in to the head unit and that the wires didn't fall out during install.

Check the headphone ports to make sure the port is functioning.

Insert and remove a headphone plug into the headphone jacks to mkake sure the headphone jack isn't stuck and cutting off the audio tot he speakers.

If you have no audio from the speakers or from the headphones, open the setup menu and navigate to SOUND or AUDIO and make sure you are set to PCM audio and not RAW.

If none of these solutions help, you have a problem with the player that is electrical and not easily repaired.

There is no sound

Have you recently used headphones in this device? I have a portable DVD player that had a similar problem. It thought that headphones were plugged in and that turned the sound in the external speakers off. If i plugged in headphones the sound worked in them. So I jiggled the headphone plug in while in the jack and removed it and the sound came back on.

Sound wont work right /not much at all

Headphone connector is usually designed to pass audio to speakers when the headphones are disconnected. A corroded or bent connector will lose audio. Does the headphone audio level seem ok? Try inserting and removing the headphone jack several times to clean the connector.

Getting sound from speakers when heaphones are plugged in.

Hi,I know that the earphone jack usually has the switch built in, and often it takes a certain "End Shape" on the Headphone Plug to actually "Activate" it... I am wondering if this is not actually your problem? and maybe ya just gotta get the "Right One"? Sometimes I have seen the "Switch" in the Jack fail and cease to "Cut out" the speakers... which generally means replacement.
