Re: DVD plays partial sound
Check your speaker connections it sounds like you have a 5.1 or higher sound system. 5.1 means left front speaker, right front speaker, center speaker, right rear speaker, left rear speaker and subwoofer.
Voices in movies all get channeled to the center speaker (you can usually hear it a bit from the right and left front speakers as well). If your center speaker is disconnected or not working, you will only hear the background sounds.

Please check the read surface of the disc you have already played on this player. Are there circular line on the surface. Best is to remove the top cover and observe if any foreign objects like sticker or paper is lodged in the loading tray. Also play with the sound off and see where the sound is coming from.
This is usually caused by Cheap connecting leads. The sound 'bleeds' from one to another.
First make sure your leads are as seperated from one another as possible.
Then, before you start up the DVD, turn the tv to a blank channel.
Hope this helps.
Bought a new unit. The old unit was a surround sound system in which the previous owner removed the speakers. I wasn't aware of the problem but found out that it would not allow it to play on Dolby 5.1...It would only play DVD's on channel 2, therefore no english etc. Thanks for your help!!!
on some dvd players and surround sound systems have a thing called DRC (dynamic range compression) you can us that and it will help it a little. i have come across the same problem but im after a digital on to run with plex or vlc on a mac. im having to route it through protools to use a compressor on there, but thats eating my resources.
