Recently the tv is making the background music of a tv show louder than the words so that we cannot hear. turning it up only makes it worse as the background music gets more louder.
any suggestions? thanks.
I have a JVC 32" TV (CRT type). On some shows like "Bones", & "Mystery", the background sound is so loud that it drowns out the dialog. Other shows are just fine. My TV doesn't have a surround sound setting.
Thank you, everyone! I thought maybe I was losing my mind. I can hardly watch a lot of the TV shows anymore due to the inappropriate use of music -- either it's too loud or there's just too darned much of it. Come on, TV producers! You are supposed to get better with time, not worse! Thank goodness I'm not alone.
Use your TV remote, go to "menu", then "Sound" or "Audio", then "other" - this should let you scroll down to "Surround Sound" - turn it "off". If you have surround sound - play with the remote speakers to control what you want to hear - this worls on Sony & Panasonic & many others.
I have noticed the same annoyance. It is OK when the narrator is a trained professional with a strong announcing voice . However when they interview a soft spoken person who has not been trained to have a loud booming voice ,their words are often covered over by dramatic swells in music. The only fix it can think of is to email or write to TV producers. I have sent two emails about the History network but to date they have been ignored. Recently it was on Greatest tank battles where elderly war survivors with interesting things to say were also drowned out by music. Maybe is more people complained or if a blog or if enough internet feedback developed, the people who lay in the music might listen.

You will need to adjust the audio on your TV. In this case I would shut down the bass boost and shut down the surround sound. Surround sound is sometimes called expansion sound. These are located on the menu under audio control. You may be satisfied with operating the TV in mono sound. Try this and see if this is better.
What you're hearing is the descriptive audio track included on many DVDs for vision-impaired viewers. Does this happen when you're watching regular TV or just with DVDs? If it happens with regular TV, do you have a cable box?
Regular broadcasting sometimes uses SAP (second audio program) to send additional audio, and this descriptive audio may be the SAP channel on some programs. Check your TV's audio settings to make sure you don't have SAP turned on. There may also be settings for SAP in your cable box as well, so check there too.
When playing a DVD, descriptive audio is usually an alternate audio track. Check your DVD player setting to make sure you've selected normal audio for playback.
The sound that you hear is coming from the sound detector not working or not receiving any audio. If the set is set to a second audio (SAP) program this could be you trouble. Some programs are broadcast this way. (such as Spanish for Spanish speaking people. Check you audio program settings.
Sounds like the high voltage is marginal.
My experiance is to not put money into a TV that is over ten years
old. TVs stress out their electronic components worse than almost
any other electronic product. After 10 years, there are so many
parts that are ready to fail that your are probably wasting your money
trying to get any more life out of it.
Another option is to wholesale replace the main board by sending it to Module Exchange at 972-298-1212,
or PTS Electronics 800-844-7871 ptscorp.com.
Be careful on buying a new one though. Often times, these new
technology ones are much worse. Always Google the model number of
the set you intend to buy and add the word 'repair' or 'complaint' to
see if it is one of the many models that are customer service
nightmares being produced by even the most reputable companies today.
Hope ya fix it!
Hi, I have a Philips 29PT9009/12 TV. Recently I have begun to see horizontal green lines on my tv, when either watching a dvd or watch tv. This has gotten worse and now the green lines are more visible and the background is now turned a shaded green. Please help me. Thanks in advance
You apparently have a high voltage arc.
Possibly the anode lead to your picture tube.
Also the flyback transformer could be arcing.
If you're not experience with tv repair, you need to have a tech check it for you. The circuits operate at very high voltage and if you get into it you can get a possibly fatal electrical shock.
Be careful !!!
