Question about Sony DAV-SC5 System
I have no sound when playing DVD. No problems when playing cd, cacd, tv, radio. I tried all sorts of different dvd's .
Sometimes it works, but independable of DVD palyer, more linked to time (eg friday evening it never works). very strange, sony has no solution, player is 2,5 years old and no warrenty.
Does anyone have a solution?
How do you have the DVD player connected - component cables, s-video cable?
It sounds like the DVD player is trying to use an output port for audio that you aren't using, but defaults to a different port for CDs - the one you are using. There should be audio output options in the DVD player menus - I'd suggest trying each of them and seeing if any help. I'm not familiar enough with that particular model to say exactly how to get to those menus.
Also, the research I have done on this system basically says the DVD player stinks, and is prone to a number of problems. You might want to see if you can borrow a DVD player from someone else (assuming you don't have another) and hook it up in the system. At the very least, this should confirm whether it's the DVD player or the sound system that is the problem. If it's the DVD player, you should be able to get a decent replacement rather cheaply. I've always had luck with Apex, and they're generally quite affordable.
