    dvd player has worked fine for years but suddenly i don't have sound anymore. sound works perfectly when watching TV, video on dvds is fine too. the cable to connect the dvd player to the TV uses a single plug on each end (ie audio and viedo in one) and is definitely connected securely. i have tried multiple dvds. also, i've never messed with the dvd player menu/setup so there's no way something could've gotten toggled off accidentally.

    I have no sound... video is fine.  The problem is intermittent, though.  Sometimes works perfectly.  Next time I turn it on... no sound.  It happens on DVDs I've already watched and worked fine.  I haven't changed any settings, connections, etc.  Very frustrating... can't figure out the trick to get the sound back on command.  I just keep turning it off and on until it works, or I give up and read a book... blah!  Help?

    Having the same problem, only turning it on and off doesnt work, and there is no option for audio other than PCM or Bitstream. No output option etc. Last month I bought both Samsung DVD player and LCD TV. Both ****, have had issues with both, and Samsung is the WORST company I have ever dealt with. They have; lied, passed the buck onto other people, tried thier hardest not to uphold warranty, said they would contact me and didnt, just to get me off the phone and I have ended up paying for service on a TV and DVD player less than a month old. My suggestion.. throw away all of your Samsung products, take the loss and NEVER buy another Samsung product again!!!!

    My Philips DVDR70 has no sound when playing back DVDs. The problem was intermittent but now the sound has gone completely. The picture shows perfectly.

    I have checked all the connections. It was working this morning... suddenly this afternoon, no sound, picture is fine. I've checked using several dvds on my other player and it is fine. Is it dead? I have Avion with no picture and a Panasonic that we lost the remote for so no longer can add or change subtitles. Help is appreciated.

No English language on DVD 's

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!!!

Cannot play VHS

Combo DVD/VCR players don't output the VHS with Component Video. Most of the time, it won't output over the S-Video either. The high end outputs are ONLY for DVD output. You must run a yellow wire, or use coax cable to get the video. Same goes for the optical digital sound out. It's only for DVD use.
