When surfing on-line, I found there’s still lots of users have problem that playing a DVD on TV with no sound, and have no idea to solve it. The lucky thing is that you’re in the right place. You can find some solid answers to solve DVD on TV no sound issues in this simple guide.
The problem has been born of below three parts:
1. DVD player or DVD disc problems
★ Check your DVD player. If the DVD player is too older, probably it’s time to replace a new one.
★ Check your DVD disc whether it is in good condition or has some scratches or damaged.
★ Check the DVD disc is homemade made or commercial one since the homemade disc and commercial disc utilize different codecs. So try to make it clear what’s your DVD player supported formats and make sure your DVDs are matched. If not, try Brorsoft DVD Ripper for (Windows /Mac) to rip/convert DVD to MP4, MKV, AVI, HEVC, H.264, MPEG-2, etc formats for playing on HDTV via USB drive without using DVD player.
2. DVD player connection or cable issues
★ The probable reason that DVD on TV no sound issue is related to the DVD player connection, whether the connection is proper and firm in a place or not.
★ Make sure your cables are in the right spot. The DVD player, for composite cable should be in order with yellow white and red. As for HDTV, you’re suggested to look at the TV back where they are at should say Video 1 2 3 whichever one has the red yellow white cables and say Video IN. match colors then try.
★ Some users also meet the condition: has pictures but no sound on DVD player through HDMI cable. In such case, you can check if your HDMI sound is turned to “On”, for some devices with HDMI output do some “automatic detection” to swift audio outputs on or off accordingly. If this still doesn’t fix DVD player no audio problem, you may consider to replace the faulty HDMI cable by a new one.
3. DVD player settings problems
★ DVD no sound on DVD player might result from incorrect menu settings. Check for volume and mute on DVD player to adjust sound settings back to normal.
★ Check if your DVD player switch settings is correct.
★ Another possible cause to no sound coming from DVD player is the selected audio track that the DVD player might be powerless to handle. If so, try another audio track to have a test.
