My surround sound won't work now when I play the dvd player


Could be many things - I know, bad answer. There is no simple answer or fix.

Without more info one can only speculate.

Please determine and answer as many or all of the following so that we can help.

1) What is the make and model number of the Surround sound unit?
2) What is the make and model of the DVD player?
3) How is the DVD player connected to the Surround sound unit?
3a) Is it connected via an HDMI cable?
3b) Does the DVD player have regular stereo connections that you are using (we call these analog audio connectors)?
3c) does the DVD player have digital audio outputs that are connected to the Surround sound receiver?
4) Did the DVD player EVER make sound?
4a) if yes - what changed?
4b) if yes - does this happen with different discs?

Now some general points.
I'll assume that the other sources do work and play sound through all speakers when they are supposed to play sound through all speakers.

Then - I'll assume that without changing anything else you select the DVD player input that used to make sound but doesn't now.

Problem could be the encoding option that you have selected when you play the disc.
Many DVD's and Bluray's have audio options that you can select from the disc's main menu.
Dolby digital is the most common - also known as AC3.
Some discs have another digital audio track called DTS.

Not all surround receivers can decode all formats.

Even if your surround receiver claims to be able to decode AC3 and DTS, they will not if you don't connect the correct cable to the receiver and usually map the input to the correct digital audio connection that you are using OR if your DVD player is not capable of outputting all formats.

There are many different ways to connect the gear and many different ways one can configure correctly or not; all contributing to whether you get sound or not.

So in the above example - by selecting DTS, you do not get any sound - then try another audio track option. Basic stereo usually works (also know as PCM - which is audio like a CD).

OR maybe you never properly configured the audio properties of the DVD player.

Go into the DVD's menu or set up options and see what you find but make sure you know how the DVD is connected to your surround receiver!

As you can see - there is no simple answer without a lengthy Q and A exchange first.

Hi, My home system has been working fine, but last week suddently i am not able to get any sounds when i am using my dvd player. The sound system works when I am watching Cable? Jan


Lacking specific connection details. Check the cables, settings (digital vs analog) and assignment of the digital input that accepts the unidentified DVD player. Check the settings within the DVD player. SWAP the DVD player's cable to another input and see what happens.

Blue Ray Player Sound works but Picture does not


This could be a fault with the unnamed DVD player and its undefined hook-up. Does it work when connected straight to the TV?

My $.02: I NEVER run audio or video to any dievice that doesn't PROCESS it. No video to my receiver. No audio to my monitor. NO unnecessary cables or connections to degrade the signal, fail or troubleshoot.

To listen your TV on your

** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or "HDMI out " of your TV unit
** to "AUX input " or "TV" OR "Any input" of your
dvd player or "Optic Cable input" or "HDMI input"

dvd player corresponding your RCA or Optic connection or HDMI ..

In your DVD player audio setup change the digital output to bitstream. You have not mentioned which DVD player you are using.

Some players it will be given
Digital Out - Off/ On select On
Dolby Digital - Dolby / PCM select Dolby
DTS - On/Off select ON

Samsung dvd player does not read dvd disc.it reads "no disc".


I also have a Samsung Dvd player. If it is a dvd you burned yourself it may not recognize the disc. If you have loaded a purchased or rented disc and it still won't load, I would say the head is dirty or the unit is defective. I would try a head cleaner first.available at most electronics stores If that doesn't work you probably will need to send it in for repair.
good luck

I have picture with the blue ray player but no sound. I plug the same cables into older dvd player and get picture and sound.


Some DVD players will only output sound on one output at a time. For instance HDMI or through the analog (red/white) connectors. Check the on-screen menus on the DVD player and be sure your correct output is enabled.
If this doesn't work, please post the model number of your DVD player along with what connections you are using.

I hope this helps

RX-V465 Yamaha Reciver we can get picture but no sound w/PS3


Check HDMI Sound settings:
Enter Setup menu via remote, then Func. Setup / HDMI / Audio. You can choose from Amp (sound will be played via Yamaha), TV (sound will go straight via HDMI out to your TV and not play on Yamaha) and Amp+TV (Yamaha will play the sound and also pass it to the TV).
Also what is your source? DVD or some network player? For example Yamaha cannot decode audio in AAC or other computer formats, so be sure to change the audio settings of your player to output PCM and not raw/bitstream.
