SOURCE: JVC DVD player plays with distorted sound

Do you run your volume flat out? If you do then perhaps you've damaged the cones in your speakers. Some of these 5.1 speaker systems are utter rubbish. They look nice but the speakers are often garbage. Also running speakers at high volume for lengthy periods can overheat the coils and distort the cones.

SOURCE: Line Of Distortion Along The Bottom of an Em20 Burned Disc

It's possible there is either a codec problem with your computer player. I would recommend trying a player such as VLC Media Player, to see if that works. If that isn't it, what kind of TV's are you watching the video on? Are they "tubed" or flat screen? If they are tubed, you wouldn't be able to see the line at the bottom like you do when you play the video on the computer.

SOURCE: Can't hear sound on Windows Mediaplayer from DVD I recorded

I've been pondering this one for a day or so - at least two possibilities:
1) There is a mute/audio-off hotbutton inside Windows Media Player itself - click on it and see if the audio works. Alternatively, you can try playing a music file in Windows Media Player to see if THAT file has sound.
2) You need a better Codec - the free version of the K-Lite Codec has limited audio support. There are no easy answers to this problem. I frequently use my computer for converting VHS's to DVD, so I finally plunked down the $50 to purchase Nero 9 and all of its codecs. Before that, however, I used VLC Media Player (free) - it has DVD/VOB audio support.

As a side note, if you wanted to use your computer to convert the VHS's to DVD, you would need a plain-old VCR, a red/white/yellow cable, a DVD burner, and a product called the Dazzle DVD Recorder from Pinnacle. You can hook the VCR straight to your computer and burn away. To get the best experience however, I would also get a program like Nero, Roxio, etc. to do the actual DVD burning (although the Dazzle's native software is perfectly capable of doing the job).

Good luck!

SOURCE: memorex mvd2047 dvd player - no audio when playing dvd

Regarding the problem with the sound on your DVD player, I would suggest you to make sure the audio cables (red and white) are connected properly to the TV and player.

Also, try using a different set of cables since those ones might not be working and this is why you are not getting audio. On the Memorex remote you will find a mute button, make sure it is not activated.

With computer and laptop dvd drives you usually only get 5 chances to change the region. I don't know why they do this. You'll need to install dvd decoder onto your laptop. There are a few free ones available like this one:

Magnavox DVD player mwd200f


I would start by replacing the cable from the DVD player to the TV, sounds like a break in the cable, or the plugs are dirty, also, just a precaution, use a CD cleaner.

No CD sound on Philips DVD/VCR player


I havent seen this model But in the past I have heard this problem arise. It turned out that there was a mute button for the cd only on the remote and there was no indicator to show it. check for a cd mute or go into the cd play menu and check around in there.
