Question about JVC AV-32260 32" TV

7 Answers

Background sound too loud

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.

    I don't understand why all tv programs have to have background music tracks. When I talk to someone I don't have background music, because I like to hear what they are saying. Almost all tv shows have the background music now and it is very, very annoying. Some of it is so loud, you can't hear the most of the actual program. I guess it will soon be included in the

    news programs too, and we won't be able to hear half of what is said. The communications system need to get rid of most of the sound tracks, and get back to the old quiet and TV we used to have

    I think the background noise is louder than the vocalization what can I do?

  • Anonymous Apr 27, 2009

    Soundtrack or background music/effects on Discovery,Science and History channels so loud the voice or dialouge can't be heard.



    Go to your TV menu - Audio or Sound and turn OFF Surround Sound.



    If you don't have a home theater sound system do not turn on Surround Sound. The voice should be mixed up front and the tv will do this automatically if you don't have Surround on.

    If we are supposed to hear the dialogue why then don't the pin heads in charge of audio do their jobs. This is just plain STUPID,!

    I agree. I stopped watching NCIS (one of my favorites) because of to loud, Blastong bacground music, if you want to call it that. I just cannot understand any purpose for it. A couple of years ago it was unheard of.

    I stopped watching NCIS because of the loud, blasting background music. When wearing headphones it's even worse. A couple of years ago the programing was fine. Other programs seem to have followed the same pattern.

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.

    Your geek brother-in-law is incorrect. I have a VIZIO with the same problem and when you go to audio there is an option to turn off SURROUND SOUND. Turn if off and the dialogue is finally louder than the music.

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!

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 !!! Stargazer
