" Some DVD\'s sound fine whilst others have background sounds but no voices. I do have an old model TV that has mono sound.Would that cause it? "
Hi,
I wrote a short article for someone who had a similar problem a few days ago.
I will edit it for you so that it fits. Here it is.
Your DVD player should have output connectors in the back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO (or MIXED ) Output Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo(or MIXED) then the dialog will be sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel speaker you will not hear it. Thus no dialog.
NOTE: In your case for the TV that is mono, here is the solution.
1 Connect a stereo pair of RCA cables (red and white "male" connectors at each end) to the Mixed or Stereo Output of the DVD player (NOT ANY SURROUND OUTPUTS).
2 Purchase an RCA type "Y" connector that has 2 female to a single male connectors on it. Walmart about 3 dollars.
3 Plug the single male plug of the Y connector into the back of the TV set's single mono audio input.
4 Connect the stereo RCA pair from the MIXED output of the DVD player into the Y connector that is now on the back of yourTV.
5 Run your yellow Video output from the DVD into the Back of the Set's yellow input.
That should do it. The sound should be clear and correct with dialog, effects and music.
Hope this helps,
Best,
Mark

My Denon AVRX3100 works fine with my Dish Network TV. The Panasonic DVD player (attached to either DVD or Blueray inputs) only has partial sound. The movie background music plays but not the voices.

Your denon amp amp does not match and work well
in some players for instance "Samsung" no pictures
and sound via HDMI input. Only replacing players
to another brand such as LG can fix the problem.

I have a problem with the background sound being louder than the voice sound on my Bravia 32 inch television whilst it is on free view. If I have the TV on Virgin cable ( we have both ). The sound is

Scene Select: Allows you to easily adjust your TV to the most suitable picture
and sound settings based on the scenes for the best quality result for the
contents genre you are watching (page 20 of your manual).

Additionally do not place the back closer than 3" to the wall, (stand,) 4" on either side and nothing closer than 12" from the top of the TV.

This is mainly for dissipating the heat that the TV creates, but this will also impact how the sound travels thoughout the space.

No English language on DVD 's

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!!!

Akai model lct2721ad. tv.

Mine does this all the time. It appears to be a factory flaw. The only way around it is to set the channel you are watching to "MONO" and the crackling sound will disappear.

I have this DVD player, and it has surround sound connectors, and seperately L/R connectors.

Whilst the L/R should mix-down the surround sounds, it doesn't appear to and only actually play the surround sound left and right.

My solution was to plug one of the RCA leads into the "Center" of the surround output, (can leave the other in the L or R slot)

you'll then get voice, out one speaker and ambient sounds out of the other.. It sucks, but that's why this things a freebie.. it's not well designed :P
