Question about Sony Televison & Video
When I play movies it has background sound, music, but voices are hardly audible
SOURCE: I have a Pioneer DV
If you are only hearing part of the audio from your DVD player, I would suggest you check your audio settings before seeking repairs.
Audio can be encoded to a DVD in several ways. If the audio on the disc is different than the settings on your DVD player, you may not hear all of the audio layers. For example, if your DVD is encoded in 5.1 Surround Sound, but your DVD player is set only to play basic Stereo, you may only hear portions of the audio.
Try accessing the menu on your DVD player, and look for the audio settings. If there is a higher setting available than is currently selected, try a higher audio setting. A higher setting should also be compatible with lower types of audio encoding.
If this does not improve your audio, or if you need help navigating your product menus, I would recommend giving Pioneer's toll-free support line a call at (800) 421-1404.

If you will allow me to make an assumption, you do not have a 5.1 surround system connected to your DVD player. This is a common experience with users of a standard TV or stereo receiver if a movie is being presented in 5.1.
In a surround sound system the center channel speaker provides almost all the vocal tracks while the side channels will provide music and some background noises. You'll still be able to hear the voices in your side speakers, but it will be muted and over powered by music or sound effects.
Some DVD players allow you to "Downmix" the surround signal to stereo. You might want to look around your sound setup on the DVD player or check your owners manual.
Hope this helps.

Go to sound menu of dvd player and select Stereo sound and if surround is enabled, disable it.
You can get help from user manual of dvd player.

If this is on a home made dvd then that is probably where you the problem is.
If you try a proper store bought dvd and that works then you know its the other dvd.
But if a proper store bought dvd give the same errors then it could b a setting or part of the sound replay circuits that have or ore dying
