Sony F Tinitron 36" Volume lower in regular TV mode, higher in dvd mode
OK, I am stumped. I have to turn the volume up all the way to get half of the volume I used to, but when I pop in a dvd, I get the full volume. Meaning, I'ts much quieter in TV mode, but loud as hell in dvd mode. Is it a setting issue?
I have a dvr and dvd connected to the tv also, not sure if this is the problem, since the volume thing just started.

Tap the "Theater" button on the remote. You should see either "Theater Mode: On" or "Theater Mode: Off". If it is off, tap it again to turn it on and wait for it to go away. Now tap again (should say "Theater Mode: On") and then press and hold it for about a second. This should actually turn it off, as opposed to just pretending to. Works on my larger Sony KDL.
Hi There, Try this: Connect you camcorder to your tv set via a/v input cable. Put camera in cam mode so you can see the picture on the tv. Turn up the volume on tv and if it squeels, the mic on the cam is ok. Record something and then play it back on the tv, if its ok, then all your audio is functioning. This means that the SPEAKER on your camera is defective.
Thanks, mr cicmo
Set your SAT receiver to full volume and use your Sony TV volume control as the master volume control. If you use an external surround sound amplifier do the same thing using the amplifiers volume control as the master volume control.
Consider that all source devices that have the ability to control their output volume will output what they call line level 0dB when the source device is set for maximum volume. If you set the source device to 1/4 volume your output to the amplifier may be around -25dB or lower. Introduce that low of an audio level to the amp and you will have to turn the amp up to half way or better causing the amp to amplify noise too.
Genericaly, there are some models of sets that have a pre-set level for the sound. Check in to the menus of the set if there is a setting for the audio level at turn on.
Some manufactures designed their sets so that the sound is at about 30% up when the set is first turned on. This is annoying. They did that because they had people turn on the set and call their tech support that their set had no sound. It turned out that the volume setting was at "0"!
