When we play a dvd - no sound comes out. If we put it on CD mode - we get the music but no audio. We have had problems from day 1 with this. How do I fix this problem. I am NOT an expert and will need very specific step by step instructions.
Make sure when you select DVD mode that it's not set to "6 ch". (The display will say "DVD 6CH")
If you are in the 6CH mode, Use the remote to switch out of this mode by hitting the DVD button again.
Hope this helps.

What is happening is the the pioneer is set up so that you can choose how you listen to your DVDs. So first you must see how your DVD is connected via the audio. I am fairly sure that the Default on the Pioneer is to play it through the standard stereo if all you have plugged in is the left and right audio plugs. If you buy an optical cable or a plug in the Digital Coax out put to the pioneer receiver, then the pioneer will decode the sound and out put true surround sound. Some DVD players don't have a digital out put, but these are the cheapest ones out there. If yours doesn't have a digital out put, then you need to get one that does. They can be purchased for as little as 39.00.
Okay lets assume you bought a DVD player with Digital out put for audio and you have it connected to the receiver. Now, you have to change the mode on your pioneer to let it know that your audio is coming in DIgital when you select the DVD. (Though this may already be the case and you won't have to do anything once you connect it.)
You need to check to see if the dvd drive is set to digital playback because it is probably trying to find your on board AC97 - 5.1 digital output. With a music CD it doesn't have to be connected digitially because it uses analog for stereo playback but most DVD's - if a movie - are set to playback in digital. Open 'My Computer', right click on your DVD drive, select properties, select hardware, highlight your DVD drive, click on properties, then properties again, check- Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM device.
for audio to be able to play in an older cd play that does not support mp3 formatted music you need a program that will put them into audio format I use apples I-tunes to do that and for you dvd burn to be able to work on dvd players it has to be in the right coding and for that you can search for just about any dvd burning program and it will do it automaticly. hope this helps you out
Are you sure your player has got the right codecs to play both audio and video of the DVD you have burnt?
PS: Try installing the Ace Mega Codecs Pack just to make sure you have all the codecs. (Remember though that this software will install all the required codecs as well as the unneeded ones...the ones maybe required in the future probably)
I have had this happen with this particular brand frequently. I have it plugged in to a power "strip" or surge protector. I find that if I turn the strip off then on again, it resets and fixes the problem.
