Question about Philips MDV460
Our tv is connected to a vcr and a dvd player. The cables are correctly installed for audio and video, input and output. The sound is fine for the tv alone, or through the vcr. There is no sound for the dvd player (although the picture is crystal clear through VIDEO 2 on tv). The dvd remote does not have a separate volume control. We had this problem when we first installed the dvd player a couple of months ago. The customer support person at Philips/Magnavox told us immediately what button to reset, and all is well. Again it has no sound and Philips/Magnavox folks now do not have a clue. Any suggestions?
Just had the same problem and it is fixed for me. With NO DISC in the player go to the System Menu. Next Navigate to Preferences on the top of the screen.
You will set an option titled "Default". Select that and it seems to reset the player to default settings and fixes the sound.|

I had this problem, and what worked for me was just unplugging the dvd player for a few seconds and then plugging it back in.

I had a problem and all above solutions did not work (although kpsmith gave me the idea) so I took dvd out, went to setup menu on dvd player and selected audio. There is an audio reset which allows you to turn HDMI AUDIO ON/OFF. Select for this to be turned on and hey presto!!! (hopefully). Thanks for getting me started kpsmith - hope my finding can help someone :)

Change audio in cable or check audio in connectors

The problem has been fixed for me. We had some guys come and look at it, and It turns out there was a problem with some part in our TV, but the part isn't made anymore so we ended up getting a TV exchange. It was not that old a set so there was still a warranty on it.
