Looks like you have inadvertently enabled some sound effect, usually these effects can be enabled/ disabled form sounds menu. They will have names like surround, movie hall, concert etc. Go to the sound settings and disable any activated audio effects.

Background noise and music is so loud we can't understand the dialog


If the sound was disconnected, you would hear absolutely nothing at all. There is a problem with the sound signal itself, so connecting external speakers probably would not help at all. Electronic components have failed, which caused the sound problem issue.

The vocals on the DVD are being drowned out by the musical parts of the movie


That would seem to indicate a major difference in loudness among the various channels, particularly the Center, where dialog usually appears.

According to the unidentified product's manual and speaker level setup procedures are the speakers about the same volume? Make it so.

When I use the headphones listening to TV, I get the background sound (eg music) clearly but the dialogue is very low and drowned out by the background music or ambient sounds


It's because the TV's audio is stereo and the dialogue is mono split between two channels. When dialogue hits your headphones the majority of the mono signal gets cancelled. Try a different set of headphones or watch true stereo channels... IE movie channels

The background noise in a movie on Tv is so loud I can hardly hear the conversations. I have tried the audio menu. Normal, Wide, Low ..They all sound the same.


GO again into the customer menu and look for something that says Hall, Surround etc--I have seen this before--usually it is a setting that creates a problem where the background sounds are so loud you cannot hear the people talking......go thru every section of the menu--I be you will find this is your problem.

Let me know what you find--I am here to help people. I do not think you have a circuit problem--only some thing in the menu has been set to the wrong place.

Music too loud and drowns out the speech . WHY ????


I also had this problem. I read elsewhere that this happens when your TV's audio setting are set to surround sound when you don't actually have a 5-speaker system. I changed the settings to regular stereo and it fixed the problem perfectly.

Secondary audio drowns out primary audio


if you are using a surround sound receiver for your audio, you need to change the surround mode. i like mine set up for dolby pro logic. there are many different settings on the new recievers so experiment until you find one that you like.
if your sound comes only through the tv, use the audio menu and set it to stereo, although with some brands "surround" will get rid of this problem

Background sound too loud


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.
