Have you verified that the actual rca cables are properly connected to the dvd stereo system and to the tv as well? You must also make sure that the out put for the stereo is set and the input source on the tv are set correctly. I know that there was an issue with a DVD stereo system manufactured by Lippert that required a software update for it to work correctly.
1. Check if the TV and Amplifier (if
connected) is turned on and set correctly.
2. Check if the TV, DVD player and
Amplifier are connected properly.
3. Make sure the TV, DVD player and
Amplifier volume are not set to Mute.
4. There will be no sound output
during Reverse Play / Pause / Step / Slow / Search.
5. If the DTS soundtrack is enabled
in the DVD Disc Menu, but you are using Stereo Analog audio, the sound will
not work. Try switching the soundtrack to Dolby 5.1 or PCM mode in the Disc

Most voices come out of the centre channel. Put your ear to that to see if it is working. If it is not then you might have somehow managed to switch it off. Check the cable connections to the speaker also.
Bought a new unit. The old unit was a surround sound system in which the previous owner removed the speakers. I wasn't aware of the problem but found out that it would not allow it to play on Dolby 5.1...It would only play DVD's on channel 2, therefore no english etc. Thanks for your help!!!
A home theater system usually consists of a dolby digital stereo amplifier and 5 to 7 speakers.
Turn your stereo on and select the source that delivers video to the TV (DVD, VHS, Game, etc.). The video may be connected directly from the device to the TV, but the audio should connect to the stereo system (DVD, VHS, or other input). This way, the source audio is sent to the stereo and it provides the big sound to match the picture. Otherwise, you'd have to connect the source audio to the TV and let it's comparably tiny amplifier and speakers provide sound - that comes up short.
When playing a DVD, select the DVD input on the TV *and* the DVD input on the stereo. If you do not connect the audio to the DVD input on the stereo system, you'll have to connect to the TV, otherwise nothing will be heard.
sounds like you need to surround modes. There is usually a Stereo, Dolby, DTS, "virtual surround", 4-speaker mode etc.. When you play a CD or connect to TV it likely defaults to playing stereo or virtual surround.
With real surround, almost all of the voices are coming from the center-channel speaker (normally placed closest to the TV).
Also, check to make sure the center channel is connected properly.
I had the same problem and this is what I did to fix it. Assuming that all of your equipment is powered on, (tv, blu-ray/dvd, rca receiver) you'll need to go into your dvd players audio menu and select the dolby digital audio.
Once you do this, the digital signal is sent to your receiver from the dvd. The receiver should automatically set itself to the dolby digital preset. If it doesn't, press the surround button until you reach it. I found part of this information here. And the rest was personal experience.
Also, it depends on if the disc format is in dolby 5.1. I hope this helps you.
