Re: no sound

The Philips DVP5982 has an odd menu setup for the HDMI sound.
If you get sound from the analog outputs from the unit, but no sound when you use the HDMI output, use this procedure to see if you can restore it:

On the remote control, press Setup.
- Right cursor to the Audio Setup Page
- Go down to Digital Audio Setup
-Right cursor, to get to the screen that shows

Digital Output
LPCM Output
HDMI Audio Setup

Try to go up to the Digital Output setting- if you can't , and instead it shows only HDMI Audio Setup with the "On" highlighted in blue, this is the quirk:

Go into the HDMI Audio Setup, and select "Off", and press Enter, so it's highlighted in blue.

Now it should let you go into the Digital Output menu selection, where you may find it to be on the "Off" setting.

Select "All", and then you can go back to the HDMI Audio Setup and set it to On again, and it should now output sound from the HDMI again.

For some reason, they decided to lock out the Digital Output settings menu when the HDMI Audio is On- go figure.

So you need to turn off the HDMI sound before you turn the sound on.. ;)

Re: no sound

I had this problem on my pc, it turned out to be a driver conflict between mobo and graphics card. i uninstalled both drivers and reinstalled nvidia drivers and i finally have sound via hdmi.

Re: no sound

I had the same problem, downloaded the latest firmware from Philips web site and the sound came back. So, just try to upgrade your player's firmware. Make sure you follow all steps described by Philips during upgrade.

How to hook up DVD player to 19' led HDTV

The modern way is to buy a HDMI Cable
Plug it in to the HDMI Port on back of DVD Player
Plug the other end into spare HDMI Port on LED TV.
Put in a DVD & hit Play
Use remote control to select HDMI port on LED TV
If it does not have a HDMI port then you need a converter box which picks up the Red & White (sound) & Yellow (viideo) and converts to HDMI standard.

My blu ray 3d dvd player will not show picture on blu ray discs only sound but will play regular dvds correctly

The video for blu ray disks come out of the HDMI port and that has to be connected to the TV for video. If it is connected, make sure the TV is switched to the correct HDMI port on the TV (assuming you have a flat screen HDTV).

Blue ray is hooked up to tv with HDMI correctly but there is no sound when playing the DVD

Check the hdmi port on you tv. There are some tv's that have an HDMI port that say HDMI/DVI(its a port for an older Digital Video that required seperate cable for sound), if this is the case then you need to hook it up to a different HDMI port on the tv because that input does not carry sound(you will see red and white audio inputs next to it) or use the audio outputs(red and white) cables and plug them into the out put of DVD player to the audio inputs that correspond to that same HDMI input. If this helps please rate me I do not get paid in anyway. I like to help people and want to make sure this is helping.

RCA DRC277-A, No sound when played through a Samsung HDTV using the HDMI chord. Chord and TV seem to check out fine. Tried all buttons and menus I could find. Have set sound to PCM, etc.

There might be a setting in your tv's audio menu to enable your audio source, which is now hdmi (vs. the rca-type red and white audio cables). Once you select the type of audio you are using, the audio, you should hopefully be able to get sound from your dvd player now.

Using the remote, you should see a format button . You can go through the options for the best looking picture using this. or you can go to the settings menu for the TV and change the format to stretch or not.

Problems playing my Phillips DVD/ VHS with my new WESTENHOUSE HDTV

I notice this was made in 2008 and I hope you have found the answer. But if you or others have not here is my answer. Are using the RCA cable from the output on the DVD Player and you have plugged it into the RCA in ports then you need to use the remote to move through the on screen menu. My INSIGNIA has a Source List menu on the remote that shows on screen. I can scope through the MENU for TV, Composite Side, S-Video Rear, S-Video Side, Composite 1, Composite 2, VCR, HDMI 1, HDMI 2, HDMI 3. That is found using either the INPUT button on the upper left on the remote or the buttons; VIDEO, COMP, HDMI, AND TV across the top of the remote. Hope this helps.
