This was a while back and maybe you've fixed it already, but I just bought the same model and also only got background sound and no voices. Turned out it was because the sound was set to surround sound. There are instructions of how to change sound to Stereo in the back of the instruction booklet - go into setup - audio - speaker setup - down mix - change to stereo.

DIGITAL TELEVISION. You can receive over the air TV. An input selection . Set this mode and scan channels........only if you have rabbit ears connected to the coaxial connection on back of TV. Free TV to watch. Thanks for asking, Matt of Martins TV.

Could just be a bad cable. Try replacing them with new ones.

You will have to reset the remote control from your TV. It is the TV that has the problem, not the remote. When you had a power glitch it scrambled the data stored on the TV and it needs to be reinstalled all over gain.

You may need to have the unit cleaned. The problem is DVD players have come down in price quite a bit so to have it cleaned might cost you $50 when you can buy a new one for $60.
The cheaper alternative is to open it up yourself and see if you can clean any sensors. Of course unplug it when opening the unit up. Once the cover is off, plug it back in and throw a DVD in it. Look for any lights or mirrors that may need cleaning. Use a Q tip dipped in rubbing alcohol to lightly clean them. Here's the thing...if the thing can't read a DVD it's useless so I don't think you have to worry about breaking anything since it's already not working. Just be careful not to touch where the power comes in or where the transformer is. Always unplug the unit when taking off or putting on a metal cover.
