Check Audio Settings Menu by pressing SETUP button on your remote, scroll down to Audio and then right to acess the audio components. Make sure all speakers are set to Large or Small (not NONE) and Subwoofer PRESENT. I turn off Bass Management because it is worthless. Booklet does not explain what this does for you.
Also, booklet is wrong for connecting speaker wires, the striped wire actually goes to the "+" side output and not the "-" side. Match color spring terminal to color of wire stripe (right next to each other).

It sounds like a problem with your centre channel or speaker. The sound of Voices and on-screen, actions in the middle of the screen are played through the centre speaker. General sounds such as music in the background, off-screen events, etc. will be played through other speakers on a home theatre system. Check your connectors coming from your DVD player to your sound system. Are you using a single-cabled digital connector or one for every channel? Check your sound settings as well, i.e., Surround, AC3, Music, etc.
It sounds like everything is working correctly to me. Voices / spoken dialogue should mostly be from the front speakers and surround audio (music, effects, etc) from all speakers.
The TV screen is in front of you so the people on the TV screen are also (technically) in front of you. Naturally, I would expect the spoken dialogue to come from the front speakers only - except in some instances, where dialogue in the movie is from a character not currently on screen. If you had voices from both in front of and behind you when the characters are only in front of you, it would be totally disorientating.
If you have audio from all five speakers during a movie then all of your connections and settings are correct. The problem you are describing is really just a description of how surround sound works.
I hope this helps. If I misunderstood the question or the problem, please let me know.
Yes, fortunately this is only a minor setting which needs to be set right. Although i have never worked on this unit before, all you need to do is to have a look on the remote itself.
The problem is that the player is set to play through the wrong channels. Hence, you can hear the background music and sound, but not the voices. This is because the voice is sent to a channel which does not exist.
On the remote there is usually a button saying channel or sound channel...Something in this line. This will enable you to cycle through the sound channels(2.0 ; 5.1 ; 7.1 etc)
If you cannot find this button on the remote, you will need to have a look around in the sound setting menu.
sounds like you may have a dodgy scart lead.check that none of the pins are loose/damaged. Also check the sound settings on the tv, it may have reset itself to the default sound setting. Or it might just be the audio settings on your dvd player have been adjusted,almost all dvd movies have there own audio adjustments.
It's an audio setting you will need to change. some movies are decoded in dolby and some by dts. This means you will have to adjust accordingly depending upon the source of audio in the movie. a double d is dolby's trademark and dts is regesterted trademark for the company "digital theater sound." The icons are on the dvd usually. Anyways, find the set up button on the remote control and use the directional arrow keys on the remote; up, down, left, or right to adjust for best sound. the thc5 will have the most function on the surround settings, movie, music, and all st. try a sequence, than repeat until desired sound is heard... good luck
