Poor sound quality with the 42PD6600

Dialogue tends to be muffled especially if there is a soundtrack etc - you cannot hear what the actors are saying clearly. Please help as Hitachi were completely useless!

Poor quality sound - low volume on Netflix. Everything fine on regular TV programmes.

You have to go to the sound mixer on your PC and increase the volume on Internet Explorer, Microsoft Silverlight also.
To find the mixer try clicking on the speaker on the taskbar.

Sound is muffled

This may be exactly how it was designed, large TVs are usually made to be connected to a sound system or sound bar to get decent sound.
Check that there is no dust in the speakers, when sound is up slap the speaker area, if you hear a rattle or any change there may be dust or dirt in the speaker area, use a vacuum cleaner to remove it through the speaker grille.

Very poor sound quality. Fluctions in background music that drowns out dialogue.Sound constantly goes off.

I would go into the menu system and turn the effects off, (Dolby etc). Leave it in stereo but remove the effects.

Only the back ground sound is heard, can't here what the main actors are saying, Samsung BD-P1500, HT-AS720S, and Series 7 750 TV, trying to play a DVD, Dolby Surround 5.1

If your sound is set to Surround Sound or Dolby Surround Sound and you haven't got the rest of the system set up to balance, that is why you can only hear some of the audio. Turn off the surround sound to see what I mean.

Sound Problems with 32" Vizio HDTV

our brand new Vizio 32 HDTV has poor sound quality, so irritating in it's flat muffled character that I can't watch it. My electrical engineer husband as attempted to change it (he does not hear the difference between the Vizio and our two Sony...there is a BIG difference) by turning off the surround sound. But to me nothing has changed. What do you think? it sounds a little bit like an old radio or a broadcast from inside a closet. Hmmm

Sound Quality

I also have a Samsung 46 inch HDTV and have the same problem. I reported it to Samsung. They sent out a repair man who replaced the entire audio system... I did not help at all. Sound quality still very bad. Hard to understand audio voice on most movies. Is there a solution short of installing an additional home theatre system?

Hyundai lcd tv

Mine does this too. Sorry if i tell you the wrong button, because i can't test it right now because I'm having the problem where my remote doesn't work. But i would either push the MTS button or the P. Mode don't remember which it was, but it would change the audio from stereo to mono and i think you want mono to fix it.
